Max Payne 3 has earned high praise from critics across the globe and as a result, analysts expect it to sell quite well.

After all, Max is back.

In a note to investors , Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia says he expects Max Payne 3 to sell 4 million units all-told during its lifetime. Not too shabby.

Hopefully, Max didn't return too late; the last Payne adventure released way back in 2003, and a nearly nine-year gap can really hurt a character's popularity. But with that patented Rockstar flair for top-notch quality and positive responses all around, that gap may be irrelevant. On a side note, Bhatia says Take-Two's fourth quarter earnings will show an 18% year-over-year decline, but adds that the company's future is bright, what with the 2013 fiscal year potentially being the publisher's "best ever."

Grand Theft Auto V should go a long way towards proving Bhatia correct.

Sweet! Playing it now and it deserves those sales figures. I've never been into Max Payne before but I took the plunge with this one and I'm thoroughly enjoying it

Oh yeah and Max's one liners are so cool and morbidly hilarious! Big ups to R* ūüôā

Am I crazy or does it seem like 2003 wasn't that long ago?
