Oops. Looks like music-based rhythm action games are seriously on the wane. Last week's big release, Rock Band 3, failed to set the UK multiformat charts alight, managing a paltry 26 in the charts - a worse chart position (by one place) than the previous week's deck-spinning franchise, DJ Hero 2.

Despite critical adulation and a more 'serious' tone than previous Rock Band efforts, Rock Band 3's slow start seems to indicate that the writing's on the wall for the music-based game.

Elsewhere in the charts, Fable III wrestled Fallout New Vegas off the top spot, taking the number 1 position with ease.

The rest of the top ten looks like this:

1. Fable III (Microsoft)
2. FIFA 11 (EA)
3. Fallout: New Vegas (Bethesda)
4. Just Dance 2 (Ubisoft)
5. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II (LucasArts)
6. Medal of Honor (EA)
7. WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2011 (THQ)
8. Professor Layton and the Lost Future (Nintendo)
9. The Sims 3 (EA)
10. PES 2011 (Konami)
