Max Payne 3 Sales Pale Versus L.A. Noire

Analyst Michael Pachter tweets about yesterday's NPD figures, revealing sales of Max Payne 3 are less than half of those of L.A. Noire for the same period: "Without divulging too much NPD goodness, I can tell you that Max Payne 3 sales were less than 50% of L.A. Noire's. 8 years in development!" Thanks Strategy Informer.

MP3 left me... conflicted
Agree with pretty much everything you said. One moment I felt annoyed, the next blown away. Odd gaming experience.

The flashback sequences, especially the graveyard, were excellent and felt right for a Max Payne game. It sucked finishing them and then going back to the Vin Diesel version of Max Payne trying to steal a bank vault from out of police station in Brazil..

I didn't mind Payne's pained language, people had the same complaints with the originals. The difference was the original titles had some tongue in cheek bad guys for Max to play off of and the gothic nior feel of the originals fit Payne. In MP3 he's the same Max but he's surrounded by character's that are all playing it straight and the setting is typical "realistic" (bland) Jerry Bruckheimer Rockstar. Sometimes it was actually amusing having Max complain about them but by the end it did get tiresome.
