Max Payne 3
This Week's UK X360 Top 20 Charts
Written By
View author's profile

Max Payne 3 has jumped in slow-motion straight to the top of the charts this week, lodging a few bullets in the face of Sniper Elite V2 and FIFA Street along the way.

The Rockstar-developed grumpathon, which we rather liked, has outsold its predecessor by 10-1, making it the biggest launch of the year ahead of Mass Effect 3. Indeed, such was its success that across all formats it outsold the long and highly anticipated Diablo 3 by 8,000 units. 58% of total sales came on Xbox 360. Nice one Max.

Check out the full chart below, which even features a surprise appearance by Deep Silver's Catherine. We rather liked that too. Sort of.

Thought max Payne was rubbish. really disappointed, very shallow and dated game polished to make it look better than it is . You can minus -1 off the total sales as a I sent mine back.

Rockstar should stick to what they are good at.

The excellent Catharine has had price hits at shop-to and zavi after piss poor distribution when it came out. Well worth it if not played.

I know the concept of disliking something popular might upset some people. Just breath and relax, It’s not a personal insult.

IMO Max Payne is a great game, if not a little challenging which seems to turn quite alot of people off sadly.

It isnt on par though with other rockstar games, but it is still awesome people who are disapointed just expected to much, IMO.



The MP is crap though.

Given that Diablo 3 is only available on PC, it's not that suprissing Max Payne beat it in sales. I love Max Payne 3. Sure it would have been nice if it was all New York style like Chapter 4. But it's still great! I miss using grenades and molotovs though :'(

I am very corious about USA's Top 20. Fifa is probably never there and Call of Duty is allways top 3.

Max Payne is fuckin great... Almost as good as Uncharted... Only reason I can see anyone hating is because it's not some generic pointy and shooty FPS game. ROCKSTAR FTW

I didnt like MP3 at first but it has grown on me and now I would highly recommend it to any one. Just dont expect you typical open world Rockstar game. Its very linear but the set pieces and action scenes are well executed and it gets the juices flowing.

I found Max Payne to be the best game I've played since Skyrim. I still have the first two games installed on my PC. With the third game, I felt like I was playing in the film Man On Fire.

You can't compare this to other rockstar games because they are sandbox and this is a TPS.

Great story, great gameplay. Agree with #10 the multiplayer is rubbish.

Theres my two cents.

My guess is if they included digital sales, Diablo 3 spanked MP3 sales not that im trying to hate on it.

Its good to have Max back.

Black Ops? i love how CoD is such a big name that all they have to do is announce a sequel and sales of the original go up so much to put it back in the top 20! its just silly.

and yet i cant find a none digital copy of diablo 3 anywere. I have max payne and love it to bits but saying a game sold 8000 more across 2 platforms compared to 1 platform that requires a certain specs or higher to run is kind of pointless :P

Really enjoyed Max Payne 3. I love the way the cut-scenes and gameplay merge into one. They said it was "cinematic" and they were not lieing!

However, I got my arse kicked on quite a lot on medium, not going to enjoy hard/hardcore xD
