This Week's UK X360 Top 20 Charts
Written Monday, May 23, 2011 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
You don't need a detective's intuition to know that LA Noire takes the top of the charts this week, knocking Brink down into second place and LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean into third. Expect to see Noire dominate the top spot unchallenged for a while, given the buzz still surrounding its launch amid a raft of uniformly positive reviews.
Crysis 2 also gets a boost into the upper echelons of the charts thanks to a price cut, while Carnival Games and MX vs. ATV Alive slip down the charts alongside Shift 2, which loses six places to take up residence at the foot of the top 20.
Shuffling out of the chart for the first time this week is Halo: Reach, while Test Drive Unlimited 2 and Dance Central leave the top 20 once again. It's unlikely we'll have seen the last of those three games in these here charts however.
For now though, it's all about LA Noire. Kudos to Team Bondi and Rockstar. Next week, we'll have to see how DiRT 3 fares in the chart stakes.
