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.
