UK Monthly Charts: June 2011

If the trade ever needed proof that Wii owners are still willing to put their hands in their pockets and buy games, 505 Gameshas it.

Zumba Fitness is June’s No.1 and has now established itself as the latest Wii sales sensation, propelling 505 into the publishing elite for the month. The game’s popularity is even rubbing off on Xbox, with the Kinect version of the game sneaking into the Xbox 360 charts (at No.9).

Nine different publishers make up the top ten, with TAKE-TWO holding two of the spots. Rockstar’s L.A. Noire continues to do well at No.2, while 2K’s Duke Nukem Forever is the highest charting new game, reaching third place.

Other new games in the Top 50 include SONY’S Infamous 2 at No.8 while the 1998 NINTENDO classic The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time has been released for 3DS. The game debuted at No.9 and helped the platform to increase its market share.

The Sims’ dominance of the PC charts continues this month, with four games in the PC Top Ten, led at No.1 by The Sims 3: Generations.
