 Deus Ex: Human Revolution  Steals UK Sales Crown From  Zumba Fitness

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Steals UK Sales Crown From Zumba Fitness

August 30, 2011 | By Mike Rose

The reign of Pipeworks and 505 Games' exercise video game Zumba Fitness has finally ended, after the game saw 10 consecutive weeks at the top of the UK software sales charts.

For the week ended August 27, Eidos and Square Enix's long-awaited Deus Ex: Human Revolution stole the top of the chart. In the two days on sale, the game managed to sell just 26,000 units less than previous title Deus Ex: Invisible War did in its lifetime.

According to data from tracking firm Chart-Track, the top 10 also saw another new entry this week, as 505 Games saw its sporting title Rugby World Cup 2011 reach number three. The publisher now has games at numbers two and three in the chart.

Elsewhere, the usual suspects were still hanging around the top 10, such as Lego Pirates of the Caribbean, Cars 2 and Dirt 3.

Re-entries into the chart included Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops.

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.
