UK Chart: Portal Kombat reign continues

Aperture Science is still the number one playground as Portal 2 maintains the top spot; Mortal Kombat continues the battle to stay second, Zumba Fitness dances back up to third.

The last week of April solidified not only Kate and William's love for each other, but also Portal 2 and Mortal Kombat's places in the chart. Both games held on for a second week at first and second, though sales slipped by 51 and 42 percent respectively.

There was good news for 505 Games as Zumba Fitness continued its impressive chart invasion by moving up one place to third. This came following the release of the PlayStation 3 version of the dance-themed fitness game; while the PS3 version commanded only 10 percent of sales, it was enough to boost it up the chart. Codemasters' popular tactical first-person shooter Operation Flashpoint: Red River also advanced up two slots to fourth place.

These two lovable bots are ready for anything Aperture Science throws their way.

Call of Duty: Black Ops refused to end its stay in the charts, but dropped down two places to fifth; likewise, chart stalwart Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars fell one place to sixth. The rest of the chart was rounded off with FIFA 11 keeping the seventh spot, Wii Fit Plus moving up to eighth, Homefront at ninth, and Just Dance 2 finding its way back to the charts at 10th.

With May looking dry for releases aside from Brink and L.A. Noire on the 13th and 20th of May, respectively, the charts over the next few weeks could start to seem remarkably familiar.

You all complain about Black Ops still being up there? Atleast its a game... Why is Wii Fit and Zuma even in the gaming charts anyway?! I thought they were more gadgets or lifestyle software...

@AuronAXE tbh I have no idea how CoD is still on the charts, people complain about repetition in MMO's but thats all CoD is.... Repetition. People need to start seeing the light of day lol

Portal 2 and MK being on top is good news. I like both of them. Call of Duty still being on the charts however is disappointing.

Portal 2 is absolutely stunning, but so is MK. And I only heard of Zumba Fitness a few days ago, how did it get to third?!
