Splash Damage and Bethesda's Brink sat atop the UK retail software sales charts last week, despite average reviews from critics. For the week ended May 14, Pipeworks and 505 Games' Zumba Fitness conceded its top spot, dropping down to third just behind Brink and Traveller's Tales and Disney Interactive's Lego Pirates of the Caribbean, UK tracking firm Chart-Track confirmed today. With a drought of new games entering the top 10 recently, last week saw a welcome change with three new entries, including MX vs ATV Alive entering at number ten. Otherwise, the chart saw numerous familiar names, with the likes of Portal 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops and Mortal Kombat holding steady. Crysis 2 also made a re-entry at number nine. 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. UK All-Platforms Top 10 1. Brink (Bethesda) 2. Lego Pirates of the Caribbean (Disney Interactive) 3. Zumba Fitness (505 Games) 4. Portal 2 (EA) 5. Call of Duty: Black Ops (Activision) 6. Mortal Kombat (Warner Bros) 7. Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars (Lucasarts) 8. FIFA 11 (EA) 9. Crysis 2 (EA) 10. MX vs ATV Alive (THQ) UK Individual Platforms Top 10 The Xbox 360 version of Brink sat on top of the UK individual platforms chart, while the PS3 version settled for position four - surprisingly high, when you consider that the PlayStation Network was still down last week. Lego Pirates of the Caribbean also dominated the charts, with the Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii versions all in the top ten, at three, five and six respectively. The Wii version of Zumba Fitness took the number two spot, and has still not dropped out of the top five since release. 1. Brink (Bethesda, Xbox 360) 2. Zumba Fitness (505 Games, Wii) 3. Lego Pirates of the Caribbean (Disney Interactive, Xbox 360) 4. Brink (Bethesda, PS3) 5. Lego Pirates of the Caribbean (Disney Interactive, PS3) 6. Lego Pirates of the Caribbean (Disney Interactive, Wii) 7. Call of Duty: Black Ops (Activision, Xbox 360) 8. Portal 2 (EA, Xbox 360) 9. Just Dance 2 (Ubisoft, Wii) 10. Wii Fit Plus (Nintendo, Wii)
