UK Top 40: LA Noire locked in first

Hunted fails to forge top ten spot.

Dark detective drama L.A. Noire has extended its reign on top of the charts, spending a third week at number one.

Co-operative fantasy fighter Hunted: The Demon's Forge was last week's major new contender, but the Bethesda-published adventure could only capture 14th place.

Hunted's platform sales broke down to 63 per cent Xbox 360, 30 per cent on PS3 and 7 per cent on PC (excluding downloads).

Sims 3: Generations - the life simulation's fourth expansion - fared better, knocking up a tenth place entry on PC.

Lego Pirates of the Caribbean is anchored in second, no doubt buoyed by the release of fourth film On Stranger Tides.

Codemasters' rally racer Dirt 3 revved into third. Colourful caricatured shooter Brink held fifth place.

The Wii bundle-backed Wii Sports Resort spends its 98th week in the UK Top 40, reclining in sixth.

Chart stalwarts COD: Black Ops, FIFA 11, and Portal 2 fill out seventh, eighth and ninth respectively.
