UK Charts: It’s OK In L.A.

The latest UK chart places are in, and L.A. Noire still reigns supreme. I’ve finally managed to play the darn thing, and it seems ok so far, although the tech behind it is amazing.

There isn’t anything massively new with the rest of the chart, although I’m surprised Brink has held in there with a commendable 5th place.


Mario Kart also leaps up thanks to the Wii being cut to £99.99.

  1. L.A Noire deserves the top spot, and DiRT 3 is in great position too!
    Cannot wait for the online meets!

    • Yeah L.A Noire was going to be in the top spot since Rockstar have a high reputation.

  2. Heard its really good tech, yet to play it, will get it when i get through my many, many games

  3. Sadly my enjoyment of L.A. Noire has decreased as the game has gone on. It looks good, but I’m finding it annoyingly repetitive. Looking forward to getting Dirt 3 soon though!

    • I guess it goes for every Grand Theft Auto and ze art of growing old….. if I was playing it underage like San Andreas then I’m sure I wouldn’t sense repetition, but I don’t complain much of repetition unless it gets boring.

      • Maybe, but I disagree, I played Vice City, dabbled in San Andreas and loved Red Dead, they were all much more fun. I just finished L.A. Noire (5 mins ago) and I’m left with a feeling that all the cases are largely the same in structure and the ending and story line was meh, but most of all, out of missions there isn’t anything to do.. No random encounters and you can’t just run around shooting things, I know your meant to be a good cop and all, but it’s plainly not as fun.

  4. So many great games around right now. Stupid poverty (relatively obviously)

  5. LEGO PotC still hanging in there!

  6. I didn’t know Origami Killer was in LA.:P I am glad that LA Noir did well in the charts as unique games tend to have trouble reaching the no1 spot. I am surpised that RDR is on this week’s chart.I think the online pass for Dirt 3 may have put people off it due to PSN store not working which in turn has damaged their sales. But it is good to see that it second.

  7. It will be interesting to see if L.A. Noire sales tail off with the ‘average to good’ rather than great reviews appearing everywhere. It certainly launched well off the back of pre release hype on the tech and Rockstars excellent rep as a developer…

    • I think, much like Heavy Rain, it’ll see very strong sales and pleasing figures for months to come. The simple reason being media coverage, very strong reviews (and the most important thing) it’s pushing what we expect from games in a mature way that many have embraced. When people want something with a little more gravitas, they’ll turn to the select few games we see before us (ie. Heavy Rain, LA Noire).

  8. Who is buying zumba fitness?! Cant believe its still in the charts.

  9. Blops?

  10. well deserved top spot loving L.A. Noire.
