UK software sales monitor: Market dips to £10.7m

After a brief increase last week, the market value dipped again to £10.7m. This is inline with the week ending July 16th – also £10.7m – which was the market’s lowest point so far this year.

However, unit sales were up compared to the week ending July 16th. 578,444 units were sold compared to 563,110 three weeks ago. This is still a decline from last week’s 606,290 units.

Once again, Zumba Fitness was the best-selling game, outselling the next four titles combined. Dirt 3 rocketed up the charts thanks to price promotions. Its sales grew 50 per cent week-on-week.

It’s another quiet week for new releases, so expect little to no improvement in the weekly market value until the big hitters start arriving at the end of the month.
