505 Games’ ‘Zumba Fitness’ (-24%) celebrates 5 consecutive weeks at No1, giving it a total of 8 weeks at the top since the launch of the hugely successful Wii version.
‘Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 2’ fails to cast its spell on the charts, debuting at No7. It’s by far the lowest ever sales in a launch week for a Harry Potter game, despite charting higher than ‘Part 1’ which came in at No20 in November 2010. It’s a happier story for Activision Blizzard’s film tie-in ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’ (Xbox 360/PS3) which climbs one place to No2 with only a 6% drop in sales. Codemasters fall one place to No3 with ‘Dirt 3’ (-25%) while continued price promotion on ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops’ (+35%) pushes it up from No7 to No4. There are now 2 Lego games in the Top 10 as Disney’s ‘Lego Pirates of the Caribbean’ (-10%) falls one place to No5, followed by ‘Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars’ (+33%) from LucasArts, back in the Top 10, climbing from No12 to No6.
‘EA Sports Active 2’ (+338%) also re-acquaints itself with the Top 10 this week thanks to a significant price promotion, propelling it back into the chart at No8. The Top 10 is rounded off by former No1 ‘Brink’ (-9%) down one place to No9 and ‘Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood’ (+12%), up from No15 to No10.
