Seven Consecutive Weeks At Top Of UK Charts For  Zumba Fitness

Seven Consecutive Weeks At Top Of UK Charts For Zumba Fitness

August 1, 2011 | By Mike Rose




The British gaming public can't seem to get enough of their fitness games, as Pipeworks and 505 Games' Zumba Fitness yet again sat on top of the UK retail software sales charts last week.

This marks the game's seventh consecutive week at the top, and its 10th week overall, according to data from Chart-Track.

For the week ended July 30, Zumba Fitness wasn't the only title in the top 10 looking to get gamers active, as Ubisoft's Just Dance 2: Extra Songs jumped into position four.

There were no new releases in the top 10, although new versions of Disney's Cars 2 on Nintendo DS and Wii forced the game up the charts to number two.

Elsewhere, Rockstar and Team Bondi's LA Noire re-entered the charts at number nine, while the likes of FIFA 11, Dirt 3 and Call of Duty: Black Ops all held strong.

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.
