Dead Island Holds Onto Top Of UK Charts For Second Week

September 19, 2011 | By Mike Rose

Techland and Deep Silver's Dead Island held on to the top spot for the second week running in the UK software sales charts last week, with no new releases entering the charts.

For the week ended September 17, data from tracking firm Chart-Track noted that the game has now sold more copies in two weeks than any past Deep Silver game has sold in its entire lifetime.

The top 10 barely shifted overall compared to last week. Resistance 3 and Driver: San Francisco swapped places at numbers three and four, while the rest of the top six remained firmly in place.

Warner Bros' Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4 re-entered the charts at number nine, while Disney's Cars 2 also jumped back into the charts at number ten.

505 Games' Zumba Fitness still hasn't dropped out of the charts since its launch, sitting comfortably at number six.

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.
