Nintendo Maintains Top Three Spots On U.K. Charts

, Nintendo's exercise game Wii Fit
has managed to maintain its strong sales, capturing the top spot for the sixth consecutive week on Chart-Track's U.K. platform-specific sales chart for the week ended May 9.
The Nintendo trio of Wii Fit
, Wii Play
and Mario Kart Wii
was able to maintain the top three spots for the second consecutive week in the region.
The appearance of Rhythm Heaven
(known as Rhythm Paradise

Falling off of the top 10 weekly chart was Atari's The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena
and Ubisoft's My Fitness Coach
for Wii. Nintendo's Rhythm Heaven
and Brain Training
