UK Sales Chart – Week ending 11th April

Alright, this is just ridiculous now. Wii Fit has been at the top of the charts so many times, that we’ve completely run out of exercise-related puns. In fact, this second week at No.1 has just made Wii Fit into Nintendo’s longest-serving All Formats No.1 since records began. Wii Fit has outsold every other game in the UK for a stunning total of 11 weeks.

There are just two brand new entries into this week’s Full Price top 40. EA’s Godfather II enters in right near the top at No.2. Whilst PC-only Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor scrapes into No.39. Despite being an expansion pack, Tales of Valor does not require the original Company of Heroes to play, so sales are only limited by the enthusiasm of PC gamers…

Despite being in its 70th week on sale, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games pole-vaulted six places up the charts to land at No.3. Will it still be selling so phenomenally a whole year-and-a-half after its release? We only have to wait six weeks to find out.

Resident Evil 5 and FIFA 09 make way by each dropping two places, ending up at No. 4 and No.5. respectively. Meanwhile, Professor Layton seems content to stay in the same position as last week, as the DS puzzler is a non-mover at No.7.

Last week, Wheelman briefly popped up seven places to No.4, but this week its back at No.11 where it was two weeks ago.

In the two weeks after its initial release, GTA: Chinatown Wars dropped two places each week, but now in its fourth week on sale the handheld crime sim drops out of the top 10, falling seven places to No.17.

This puts it just three places above GTA IV which was released almost a year ago. The latest home console version of Grand Theft Auto climbed five places to No. 20 this week.

The biggest winner this week was Lego Batman which jumped eleven places to No.28, and the biggest loser was Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3 which fell fifteen places to settle at No.38.

Several notable games fell out of the top 40 completely this week, including Halo Wars, LittleBigPlanet, Empire: Total War and Afro Samurai.
