Brink comes in second, while Portal 2, LEGO, Mortal Kombat and others linger in the top ten.

Cole Phelps wonders if 899K is considered a hit.
Cole Phelps wonders if 899K is considered a hit.

Rockstar Games and Team Bondi's 1940s noir adventure, L.A. Noire, was the top-selling game of May, according to the numbers released by the NPD Group. Splash Damage's Brink came in second.

NPD Group no longer releases specific sales data for software releases, but it did tell me L.A. Noire sold a combined 899K copies across both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

I was unable to get clarity on which platform the game sold better on.

The full list:

  1. L.A. Noire
  2. Brink
  3. Lego Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game
  4. Portal 2
  5. Mortal Kombat
  6. Call of Duty: Black Ops
  7. Zumba Fitness: Join the Party
  8. NBA 2K11
  9. Just Dance 2
  10. Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars

More specifics tend to come out throughout the afternoon. As I learn more, I'll let you know.
