L.A. Noire’s US sales don’t live up to (some) expectations

It’s probably my fault; the first Rockstar game I’ve ever fallen head over heels in love with and it doesn’t manage to do Red Dead/Grand Theft Auto numbers. That is to say that L.A. Noire, Rockstar’s latest game, hasn’t hit the one million sales expected of it in its first month.

It did however rake in a healthy 899,000 copies. Not bad, but not good enough for industry analyst Wedbush Securities which claims that the sales were “below our estimate of one million units”.

In Europe however, Noire has been a hit, topping charts for three consecutive weeks and only just crumbling to the might of Duke Nukem Forever.
