There hasn’t been a Deus Ex game for over seven years. With a long list of glowing reviews behind it though, Deus Ex: Human Revolution has managed to do what other games could not – push Zumba Fitness off the top of the chart. Amazingly, Deus Ex: Human Revolution is already just 26,000 copies away from beating Deus Ex: Invisible War’s lifetime sales.

The Xbox 360 version of Human Revolution has shifted the most copies so far in the UK with 57% of the total. The PlayStation 3 version made up 31% of copies sold while just 13% were sold on PC. That said, Chart-Track doesn’t take digital downloads into account.

We had a hunch that Rugby World Cup 2011 would do alright, and, well, it has – it went in at #3. If it had sold an extra 400 copies last week it would have made it to #2 and also beaten Zumba Fitness. LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean is at #4 followed by Call of Duty: Black Ops at #5.

Predictibly, Xenoblade Chronicles wasn’t able to better its launch week placing of #7. With copies hard to find it sinks to #27. That’s still better than Nintendo’s football flavoured DS RPG Inazuma Eleven which only manages to enter at #39. Foul!
