Team Bondi and Rockstar Games' LA Noire held on to the top spot in the UK retail software sales charts last week, despite a 43 percent drop in sales. For the week ended May 28, the detective title, released on May 20 in Europe, held off Codemaster's newly-released racing title Dirt 3, although the racer did outsell both of its predecessors, tracking firm Chart-Track confirmed today. The chart also saw two Nintendo titles, Wii Sports Resort and Mario Kart Wii, jumping back into the top 10 thanks to price promotions on both. Elsewhere, Splash Damage and Bethesda's Brink dropped down to fifth, while Pipeworks and 505 Games' Zumba Fitness still refused to leave the top five, sitting comfortably at number four. 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.
