UK charts: Duke nukes LA Noire from top spot

Monday, 13 June 2011 09:31 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Duke Nukem Forever’s the new UK number one this morning, overtaking Rockstar’s LA Noire.

The new entry ends the Team Bondi investigative thriller’s three week run at the top.

56 percent of sales of DNF, which has been 14 years in the making before being resurrected by Gearbox, came from Xbox 360. PS3 gained a 30 percent share, while PC seen 14 percent.

The shooter’s new position comes despite receiving a critical kicking over the weekend. It’s currently at 50 for 360 and 62 for PS3. The PC version is actually holding steady at 76.

Other big new entries include Sony and Sucker Punch open-world title inFamous 2, which entered at four.

THQ shooter Red Faction: Armageddon came in at eight, with a majority of sales being on 360 at 70 percent. PS3 was at 26 percent and PC at a measly four percent.
