L.A. Noire tops Duke Nukem, inFAMOUS 2 in June sales

L.A. Noire

Duke Nukem’s much-awaited return was seen as a major disappointment to reviewers, and it appears that disappointment has also been reflected in the game’s first-month sales. Duke Nukem Forever came in second place to May’s reigning champion L.A. Noire and just edged out third-place inFAMOUS 2 in the NPD’s June sales chart.

The higher placing of L.A. Noire and Duke Nukem Forever over inFAMOUS 2 could be due to the fact that the former titles are available on multiple platforms. The results make L.A. Noire the top-selling game in the first two months of its release despite the current controversy revolving around the unfair treatment of employees during the game’s production at developer Team Bondi.

As for the 3DS remake of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, the return to Hyrule on Nintendo’s new portable debuted in fifth place. Meanwhile, Call of Duty: Black Ops continues to pull in strong sales eight months after release, coming in sixth.

Notable new releases that missed the top ten for June include Alice: Madness Returns and Shadows of the Damned.

1)   L.A. Noire (360, PS3)
2)   Duke Nukem Forever (360, PS3, PC)
