The lights are on
Rockstar's pedigree shines through again as Team Bondi's detective game tops the software sales charts for the month of May.
Last month's best performing game, Mortal Kombat, clung to a position at the bottom of the top five, while last month's second place game, Portal 2, proved to have better traction in landing at the fourth spot. Call of Duty: Black Ops continued to make itself comfortable on the list, and NBA 2K11 held a top 10 position for the eighth straight month. The surprise performer was Brink, which landed in the second slot despite lackluster reviews and technical issues at launch. Check out the full list below:
