Portal 2 Scores Valve First Ever Top Spot In UK Sales Charts

April 26, 2011 | By Mike Rose




Valve and EA's first-person puzzler Portal 2 entered the UK software sales charts this week at number one, signalling Valve's first ever all formats top spot in the UK charts.

For the week ended 23 April, the charts also saw two other new entries -- Warner Bros' Mortal Kombat finishing up in second place, and Operation Flashpoint: Red River scoring itself a number six position, UK tracking firm Chart-Track confirmed today.

Pipeworks and 505 Games' Zumba Fitness relinquished its two-week hold on the top of the charts, dropping down to number four. A price promotion on Call of Duty: Black Ops saw the shooter jump back up the charts to number three, forcing the likes of Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars and Crysis 2 down.

Nintendo's Wii Fit Plus also re-emerged in the top 10, taking ninth place.
