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:

Black Ops is still selling in the top 10 every month, yet EA thinks Battlefield 3 will sell more copies than the next Call of Duty entry. I just don't see it happening. Doesn't help their pursuit of the "FPS Crown" that MW3 has already matched/surpassed BF3's pre-order numbers.
Yeah LA Noire was a nice different take to say the Call of Duty's and such, a nice breath of fresh air some might say :P
LEGO POTC ♥
Congrats to everyone at Team Bondi. Awesome game and I'm glad so many are checking it out. I love seeing their hard work pay off.
I loved LA Noire. I hope Rockstar continues to make spiritual successors for it (but not a direct sequel; that wouldn't work). Also, some steady DLC offerings would be cool, but 4 cases is already pretty awesome.
awesome l.a.noire totally deserved the money its getting
It makes sense they don't release the numbers, but this sucks. Video Games need a new group to track sales.
a little work on the graphics and animation(not the facial) of LA Noire and itll be the most epic
Can't really be surprised by this.
cool for l.a noire
this game desearves it!
