Always Bet On Duke…Unless You Also Have L.A. Noire


Duke Nukem Forever was the #2 game on the U.S. top-ten video game chart in June, according to a report by the NPD Group. The honour  of #1 went to L.A. Noire, which held the top spot for the second month in a row. Both games were published by Take-Two.


Meanwhile, Infamous 2 appeared at the #3 spot and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time at #5. After being pushed off the top-ten chart in May, Mortal Kombat fought its way back on to the #8 spot as well, with Ubisoft’s Just Dance 2 closing out the list.
