 Zumba Fitness  On Top of UK Retail Sales Charts For Third Consecutive Week

Zumba Fitness On Top of UK Retail Sales Charts For Third Consecutive Week

July 4, 2011 | By Mike Rose




Pipeworks and 505 Games' Zumba Fitness took the top spot in the UK retail software sales charts last week for the sixth time since its release in November 2010, according to sales tracking firm Chart-Track.

For the week ended July 2, the fitness title stayed at number one for the third week in a row, in a week where no new titles entered the top 10. In fact, the top-selling title managed to outsell the next four titles combined.

Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D dropped out of the top ten for the first time since its release. Elsewhere, the release of the latest Transformers movie helped to boost sales of the game, and push it to position six.

With Wimbledon coming to an end this past weekend, two tennis games can be found in the top 10. Virtua Tennis 4 is sitting at number five, while Top Spin 4 has been served a number seven slot.

Below are Chart-Track's all-platforms sales charts, which include unit sales of all versions of a given title, and the individual platform charts, which treat individual SKUs separately.

UK All-Platforms Top 10

1. Zumba Fitness (505 Games)
2. Lego Pirates of the Caribbean (Disney Interactive)

10. FIFA 11 (EA Sports)

UK Individual Platforms Top 10

Both versions of LA Noire can once again be found in Chart-Track's individual platforms list, with the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions at positions four and nine respectively.

Zumba Fitness on the Wii continues to dominate the charts, holding back first-person shooter Fear 3 on the Xbox 360 from the number one spot.

2. Fear 3 (WBIE, Xbox 360)
