Deus Ex storms UK chart to dislodge Zumba Fitness

Reboot just 26,000 sales short of Invisible War's lifetime sales in territory

Deus Ex: Human Revolution has fulfilled expectations and knocked long-term champion Zumba Fitness from number one on the UK's software chart, but only as far as second.

Square-Enix's reboot for the venerable series achieved near sales parity with the second game in the series, 2003's Invisible War, in just two days - falling 26,000 copies short of that game's lifetime UK sales.

Sales were heavily skewed towards Xbox 360, which saw 57 per cent of sales. PS3 took 31 per cent and PC made up 13 per cent, according to figures from Gfk Chart-Track. Digital PC sales are not currently included in figures.

Zumba Fitness' incredible run at number one, which needed just one more week to equal FIFA: Road to the World Cup's record holding eleven, may have been ended by Deus Ex, but the title still holds on to second place, just above new entry Rugby World Cup 2011, also from 505 Games.

No other new entries made the top 40 this week, whilst last week's surprise hit Xenoblade Chronicles sank rapidly to 27th following stock shortages. The 3DS' port of Ocarina of Time also saw a significant drop following a spike after the 3DS price drop, slipping out of the top ten to eleventh from fourth.
