It did seem like L.A. Noire was selling quickly yesterday, and the critics are suitably impressed.
Therefore it should come as no surprise that publisher Rockstar's stock has soared to a 52-week high on the strength of the detective thriller's launch. At close of trading, shares had risen $1.23 to $17.10, an 8% leap, and it'll be interesting to see how well the game fares in relation to past Rockstar productions. With the likes of Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption on their slate, this is one company that's used to blockbuster releases and skyrocketing share prices. There was a time when Rockstar really had to rely on GTA for its big payday but things have changed this generation, and that's good news. Have you picked up L.A. Noire and if so, is it worthy of the attention?
