LA Noire expected to sell 3-4 million

Team Bondi’s LA Noire will end up selling quite comfortable numbers, one analyst expects.

Basing the prediction on pre-order checks and Amazon Top 100 popularity, Sterne Agee’s Arvind Bhatia believes the game has the potential to reach 4 million copies sold. “We think the Street is expecting the title to sell 3 to 4 million units and so far the initial reviews seem to support this thinking,” the analyst has said. “Our channel checks last week regarding pre-orders also indicated unit potential in the 3 to 4 million range.”

The crime saga launched in North America this Tuesday, and Europe this morning. The earliest indication of how it’s doing in the wild will be provided by UK data collector GFK Chart-Track on Monday; we fully expect it to climb to the top of the all-formats chart though.
