The reign of Pipeworks and 505 Games' exercise video game Zumba Fitness
has finally ended, after the game saw 10 consecutive weeks
at the top of the UK software sales charts.
For the week ended August 27, Eidos and Square Enix's long-awaited Deus Ex: Human Revolution
stole the top of the chart. In the two days on sale, the game managed to sell just 26,000 units less than previous title Deus Ex: Invisible War
did in its lifetime.
According to data from tracking firm Chart-Track, the top 10 also saw another new entry this week, as 505 Games saw its sporting title Rugby World Cup 2011
reach number three. The publisher now has games at numbers two and three in the chart.
Elsewhere, the usual suspects were still hanging around the top 10, such as Lego Pirates of the Caribbean
, Cars 2
and Dirt 3
Re-entries into the chart included Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood
and Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops
