New Harry Potter stumbles in UK charts
Lowest ever sales for series in debut week
EA's movie tie-in Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows has failed to replicate big screen success, only entering the UK charts at number seven in its debut week.
According to official monitor Chart-Track "it's by far the lowest ever sales in a launch week for a Harry Potter game, despite charting higher than Part 1, which came in at number 20 in November 2010."
505 Games' Zumba Fitness remains number one in the UK for its fifth consecutive week, and eight weeks at the top in total, boosted by a Wii version of the game.
Activision's Transformers: Dark of the Moon climbs one place to number two with only a 6 per cent drop in sales, while Codemasters' Dirt 3 drops to number three with a 25 per cent drop in sales.
Promotions for Call of Duty: Black Ops pushed sales up 35 per cent, and EA Sports Active 2 jumped back into the top ten at eight with a 338 per cent climb in sales.
