2K Games and Gearbox Software’s Duke Nukem Forever for Sony Corp.’s Playstation 3, Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox 360, and the PC ranked as the No. 2 best-selling title across platforms in the latest retail figures.
NPD Group Inc. this week reported Duke Nukem Forever sold 376,300 units to rank as the No. 2 best-selling title in June.
Duke Nukem Forever is said to include over-the-top weapons, massive levels, and franchise interactivity – including the ability to shoot hoops, lift weights, read adult magazines, draw crude messages on whiteboards, or ogle women in the Duke Nukem universe.
In addition, it is holding a Buy 2 Get 1 Free Game Sale.
The Duke Nukem Forever: Balls of Steel Edition includes a collectible bust of Duke Nukem, 100-page hardcover book, comic book, radioactive emblem dice, and Duke Nukem postcard series at $89.99 to $99.99.
It began sale June 14.
Duke Nukem Forever is the sequel to the 1996 release, Duke Nukem 3D. The title was announced in 1997 and incurred a stalled development process, including a lawsuit between publisher Take Two Interactive and developer 3D Realms. A settlement between the two parties was reached in June 2010.
Sony in May began sale of the PS3 160GB Call of Duty: Black Ops Bundle, which includes the PS3 160GB hardware, a copy of Activision Blizzard Inc.’s Call of Duty: Black Ops, the Call of Duty: Black Ops First Strike DLC Pack, and a Dualshock 3 Controller at $299.99.
