It must have been a slow week for sales last week. Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 2 makes #7 in the top 40 UK chart yet Chart Track claims launch sales have been the lowest for any Harry Potter game. Even lower, believe it or not, than ‘Part 1’ which only made it to #20.

Zumba Fitness stays at #1, giving it a five week run, while Transformers: Dark of the Moon rises up from #3 to #2. L.A Noire has left the top ten this week, falling from #5 to #13.

The actually pretty good sales at Game and GameStation continue to propel recently released titles up back the chart. Most notable is Marvel vs Capcom 3 which rockets back from #39 to #14. Dungeon Siege 3 is up from #19 to #11 while Mortal Kombat uppercuts from #31 to #19.

Despite apparently being pretty good, Sega’s Captain America: Super Solider fails to make a top 40 appearance. The best the Captain can do is #30 in the PlayStation 3 chart and #34 in the Xbox 360 chart. The tie-in is nowhere to be seen in the Wii chart, fuelling further speculation that Sega hasn’t bothered releasing it in Europe.
