Zumba Fitness Tops Weekly UK Charts Once Again

Pipeworks and 505 Games' exercise video game Zumba Fitness was able to stay atop the weekly UK sales charts for the ninth consecutive week, and 12th week at the top overall.
Pipeworks and 505 Games' exercise video game Zumba Fitness topped the all-platforms sales charts in the UK for the week ended August 13, according to Chart-Track. That marks the ninth consecutive week that the dance and exercise title has been at the top of the weekly UK charts, and the 12th week that it has reached number one overall since its launch in November last year. Chart-Track said the game, which dropped 7 percent week-on-week, has "become the seventh-biggest-selling third-party Wii title ever in the UK." Last week, Majesco, Zumba Fitness' North American publisher, said the game had sold 3 million units worldwide. There were no new games in the top ten during the week on the all-platforms charts. The top 10 games included Disney's Lego Pirates of the Caribbean and Cars 2, Codemasters' Dirt 3 and EA Sports' FIFA 11. 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.
