‘Zumba Fitness’ topples ‘Crysis 2’, moving up from No2 to become 505 Games’ first ever All Formats No1 and the first fitness title to reach the top spot since ‘Wii Fit Plus’ back in W49 2009.
Sales of ‘Zumba Fitness’ fell by 49% after a highly successful launch on Wii, but sales of Crysis 2 were down by 57% which, in a quiet week for new releases, helped the Wii-centric title’s rise to No1. The hot weather this weekend is perhaps a contributing factor to the heavy drop in sales experienced by most titles, along with customary declines from several new titles in their second week of release. One of these, ‘Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters’ manages to climb 2 places to No4 despite a 32% drop in sales, pitching it behind ‘Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars’ (-45%) which is a non-mover at No3. EA now have 3 games in the Top 5 as ‘Shift 2: Unleashed’ (-45%) only falls one place to No5. THQ are also well positioned with ‘HomeFront’ (-46%) down one place to No6 and ‘WWE All Stars’ (-41%) holding on to No7.
‘Pokemon Black Version’ (-15%) jumps back into the Top 10, up from No13 to No8, overtaking sister title ‘Pokemon White Version’ (-27%) which is a non-mover at No9. ‘Dynasty Warriors 7’ from Tecmo-Koei is this week’s only Top 40 new entry, debuting at No10, while several titles re-enter the chart, boosted by retailer price promotions – most notably ‘BulletStorm’ (+37%) which re-enters at No17.
