It appears Rockstar and Take-Two Interactive have another winner on their hands.
L.A. Noire has rocketed to number one on the UK sales charts, and it has the distinction of being that region's fastest-selling new intellectual property to date. Overall sales were almost the same as last year's Red Dead Redemption but technically, RDR is not a new IP, even if it was far more popular than its predecessor, Red Dead Revolver . L.A. Noire knocked last week's #1 – Brink – off the top spot; Splash Damage's shooter suffered a 48% decrease in sales. LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean remains popular in the #2 slot and The Witcher 2 debuted this week in the top five. Oh, and the ever-present Call of Duty: Black Ops still managed to crack the top ten…because it's Black Ops .
We're happy to see L.A. Noire hitting the charts hard, and we look forward to seeing how American gamers responded to Team Bondi's gem.
