GAME CHART NEWS: Duke Nukem Forever Takes No 1 & Zumba Sales Exceed 2m
15 Jun 2011
The new Duke Nukem video game has knocked L.A. Noire from the top spot in the UK gaming charts.
Duke Nukem Forever hit the stores on Friday after an franchise break of more than 13 years.
The action-oriented first person shooter video game is developed for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PCs.
Recording 56% of its sales for Microsoft’s Xbox 360, the game also reported a 6% sale of special edition version and 94% standard.
Zumba Fitness has moved to the third position in the list with Infamous 2 and Red Faction Armageddon, which also saw strong debuts, in the next two spots.
In other gaming news, Majesco has announced that global sales of the dance-fitness video game, Zumba Fitness, have surpassed two million units.
The title, released earlier this year in the UK for Wii, PS3 and 360, was a consistent top five hit in the country.
The latest figures came as the publisher nearly tripled its second-quarter revenue to $32.1 million, compared with the corresponding period in 2010.
Majesco now expects its full-year revenue to be in the $110-120 million range, up from its previous forecast of $100-110 million.
The firm has $18.5 million in cash and cash equivalents, up from $8 million on October 31, 2010.
It plans to release Zumba Fitness 2 on Wii in November, and on another platform in 2012.
