UK Charts – Zumba Fitness retakes No.1 from Portal 2

In what may be surprising to Train2Game students, Zumba Fitness has regained top spot in the UKIE/GFK Chart-track All Formats top 40 at the expense of Portal 2.

It’s 505 Games dance title’s third time at No.1, having taken the title twice during April as reported by the Train2Game blog.

Portal 2 may have held No.1 for two weeks, but for now it slips down to No.2, while Mortal Kombat also drops once to No.3. Meanwhile, Call of Duty: Black Ops continues to sell strongly moving up one spot to No.4 in this weeks’ chart.  The top five is completed by Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars which also raises one place from No.6.

FIFA 11 drops to No.6 in its 32nd week on sale, and the same week in which the Train2Game blog revealed that its sequel will feature some of the biggest changes in the series.  Operation Flashpoint: Red River drops three to No.7 in its third week in the charts while Wii Fit Plus is a non-mover at No.8.

Pokémon Black – which as reported by the Train2Game blog took No.2 in its debut week – re-enters the top ten at No.9 while Just Dance 2 holds No. 10. Former No.1 Homefront leaves the top ten, and falls to No. 17.

The UKIE Gfk Chart-Track All Formats Top 10 for the week ending 7th May 2011 is therefore as follows:

1. Zumba Fitness (505 Games)
2. Portal 2 (EA)
3. Mortal Kombat (Warner)
4. Call of Duty: Black Ops (Activision)
5. LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars
6. FIFA 11 (EA)
7. Operation Flashpoint: Red River (Codemasters)
8. Wii FIt Plus (NIntendo)
9. Pokemon Black (Nintendo)
10. Just Dance 2 (Ubisoft)

Releases in the coming week include Brink and Lego Pirates of the Caribbean.

So Train2Game, what are your thoughts on Zumba re-taking No.1? Is it testament to a successful game or was it just a slow week for new releases? Will Brink take top spot next week?
