Resident Evil 5 retains UK top spot

Brain Training sales up 117 per cent on Mother's Day sales; Madworld enters at 34

Resident Evil 5 has retained the top spot in the UK software sales chart despite a 52 per cent fall in sales, according to Chart-Track.

Wii Fit dropped 9 per cent in sales but held onto second place. Nintendo's title closed the gap on Capcom's horror blockbuster, but was still significantly outsold by a margin of nearly three-to-one.

At number three was Professor Layton and the Curious Village, which climbed up one spot from last week, while THQ's WWE Legends of Wrestlemania debuted in fourth place with relatively even sales across the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for the DS, also debuted this week at number six, selling around half the numbers that GTA: Vice City Stories for the PlayStation Portable sold during its launch week.

Street Fighter IV re-entered the chart at number seven, from number 13, with sales climbing 48 per cent prompted by retailer promotions.

Brain Training sales shot up 117 per cent, catapulting the title from number 21 to number eight in the chart. Chart-Track credits Nintendo's Mother's Day-promoted DS Lite Starter Pack for the sales boost.

Three new titles failed to make it into the top ten, including Singstar Queen at 22, Scrabble Interactive: 2009 Edition at 27 and Madworld at number 34.
