Wii Fit Leads U.K. Charts For Fifth Straight Week

For the fifth week in a row, Nintendo's Wii Fit has topped the weekly SKU-specific unit sales charts in the U.K., this time fending off competition from Activision Blizzard's big movie tie-in, X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
For the fifth week in a row, Nintendo's Wii Fit has topped the weekly SKU-specific unit sales charts in the U.K., this time fending off competition from Activision Blizzard's big movie tie-in, X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The last time that Wii Fit slipped from its top spot was when Capcom's Resident Evil 5 released in March. That title has since slipped just beyond the top 10 (11th for the Xbox 360 version and 14th for PS3). Besides Resident Evil 5, games that dropped out of the SKU-specific charts since last week include EA's The Godfather II for Xbox 360 and PS3, and Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training for DS. Title that fought their way back into the top 10 after being absent last week include EA's FIFA 09 for Xbox 360, Ubisoft's My Fitness Coach for Wii and Sony's Killzone 2 for PS3. In the top 40 SKU chart, there were 12 titles for Xbox 360, 11 for DS, nine for PS3, seven for Wii and one for PC. Although the Raven Software-developed Wolverine failed to overtake a lineup of Wii and DS titles on the SKU-specific charts, the individual platform chart, which lumps sales of all versions of the same title together, saw the action game capture the number two spot behind Wii Fit. Below are the unit sales rankings for individual platforms for the week ended May 2:
