EA's FIFA Street went straight to the top of the UK sales charts in its opening weekend, meaning that EA has held the top spot with three different releases in three consecutive weeks. For the week ended March 17, and according to data from tracking firm Chart-Track, FIFA Street followed the success of Mass Effect 3 the week before, and SSX the week prior to that. The company is now dominating the top 10, with Mass Effect 3 at number two, SSX at number three, and best-seller FIFA 12 sitting comfortably at number four. The last time EA held the top four positions was the end of 2003. Elsewhere, Nintendo's Mario Party 9 held firm at number five, and was joined by Sega's Mario & Sonic London 2012 Olympic Games at number six. The unstoppable Zumba Fitness is also creeping its way back up the charts, jumping from position ten to eight this week, while Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 continues to hang around the bottom of the top 10.
