 Zumba Fitness  Takes Top Spot on UK Sales Charts

Zumba Fitness Takes Top Spot on UK Sales Charts

April 11, 2011 | By Mike Rose




Pipeworks and 505 Games' Zumba Fitness took the top spot in the UK sales charts after settling for second place just behind Crytek and EA's Crysis 2 last week.

It's the first fitness game to reach the number one spot since Wii Fit Plus back in 2009. Sales of the title fell by 49 percent, but sales of Crysis 2 fell by 57 percent, giving Zumba Fitness the edge, UK tracking firm Chart-Track confirmed.

For the first time since the launch of the latest Pokemon titles, the Black version jumped ahead of White, after missing out on a top 10 place last week. Both games now sit in positions eight and nine.

Tecmo Koei's Dynasty Warriors 7 is the only new entry into the top 10 this week, with the likes of Lego Star Wars III, Shift 2: Unleashed and Homefront all keeping a hold on their top 10 spots.

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.
