UK Video Game Charts: Xenoblade Chronicles Fails to Shake Zumba
While the UK Video Game Charts have a new, reasonably heavy hitter in their ranks, the mighty Zumba Fitness remains untouched at Number 1. This is its 10th successive week at the top and its 13th overall.

Nintendo's Xenoblade Chronicles fails to make an impact at the very top of the Charts, coming in at Number 7.

We should finally see some change next week, however, with Deus Ex: Human Revolution out this Friday...

The Top 10 in full looks like this:

1 - Zumba Fitness - 505 Games
2 - LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean - Disney Interactive
3 - Cars 2 - Disney Interactive
4 - The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D - Nintendo
5 - FIFA 11 - EA
6 - LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 - Warner Bros
7 - Xenoblade Chronicles - Nintendo
8 - Dirt 3 - Codemasters
9 - Brink - Bethesda Softworks
10 - L.A. Noire - Rockstar

That's the All Format charts, so Leg, Cars, Fifa etc included XBox,PS3,Wii,DS all added together.

If you look at the individual formats, you'll see that Xenoblade did in fact make an amazing impact coming in at #3

Poor article...
Xenoblade is getting sold out everywhere.
Besides, core game are never doing that well in the Uk charts.
So 7th, for a RPG, on single platform, on Wii, for a new franchise, that's an amzing achievement !

Try again. It was revealed that the shipment of Zenoblade Chronicles to the UK were in the mere 1000s. 'Amazing impact' in the charts perhaps, but only because of the fact that it hit #7 despite so few copies being sold.

@Jon_P It came in at #2 on the Wii chart, ahead of Just Dance 2 (release October 2010), Mario Kart Wii (released April 2008) and behind Zumba (released April 2011). Need I say any more?
