Rockstar Games has recently revealed that L.A Noire is coming to 4 different platforms.
What is that dot? Like a tiny little turd??
What? The Switch version is going to be the most expensive edition? That's a setback in my opinion
Most expensive with none of the graphical upgrades... And they wonder why their games don't sell on Nintendo.
Wow cause graphical upgrades is all that matters. Let's just ignore all the extra features that the switch is getting that the ps4 and xbox one ain't. Typical fanboy mentallity.
But you left out it have all gameplay upgrades taking advantage of switch controls
Love keyboard worriors if you don't like it don't buy it simple.
@mcstorm This is what pretty much happens. People don't buy 3rd party games on Nintendo platforms. Cus there is always some kinda bs. Like it cost more comes out years late is missing modes etc. And people can do both. Voice their dissatisfaction and not buy it.
NintendoTax strikes again, this time paying extra for the more expensice SD cards and touch controls. I also imagine because it's the first time on a Nintendo platform.
Nintendo have a history of making their console games be more expensive than the competition. The proprietary cartridge format and different hardware configuration doesn't help. When you can buy games on PS4 for around £15-20 brand new, and yet a 4 year old re-release like MK8 costs £40, you know something's wrong.
After reading the article, the price hike is for the cartridge. All digital copies are priced at $40.
looking forward to seeing how switch version stacks up against PS3/360. the price is ridiculous, but switch fanboys must be happy for this huh?
well it's another game isn't it? I never played the game before.. so it's an option for me at least.
no neon it isn't. That's the problem. It's literally the worst Rockstar game they've published; a real borefest. It sold well but didn't recoup the cost to buy it from Sony. Hence the remaster...
@CBaoth - yes but it's not like it's only releasing on Switch as a desperate attempt. They are releasing it across the board. And just because it's been released previously on other consoles doesn't mean it's a knock against Nintendo. Rockstar hasn't supported Nintendo in a long time. So it's nice to see they are at least testing the waters a little. Maybe Switch owners will see a GTA V port in the near future then.. who knows.
Are you buying the interior version which is the most expensive ??? What's wrong with you people ???
@bouzebbal - maybe.. I play my Switch more away from the dock anyways (work, bed, etc). So it would probably get a lot more play than on my PS4.
Another reason BC is important. This is getting out of hand, for every decent new IP there is like 15 remasters!!!
I own a Switch, but why do I happy to pay more for a game that cost less on other platforms? If you meant to say that Switch owners are happy that this game come out on Switch, then I agree. It shows a sign that third party devs are starting to get interested in the Switch, which only means good things from now on. I personally had never completed LA Noire, so I will gladly double dip on either my PS4 or the Switch. Higher graphic fidelity or portable. Decision decision decision.
Switch has the potential to sell fewer copies even if priced the same due to install base. The cost of the media is also more expensive due to not using optical media, and the fact they won't get the same economies of scale since they won't produce the same number of copies. The higher cost is likely what it is because of these two factors. Demand and production costs. The publisher has to be able to recoup the cost to port to the Switch, and to do that, they deem they have to sell it for more. Sometimes the perception that it's done out of spite or trying to take advantage of something is wrong, and the real world costs have to be accounted for, and if it costs more, they can make more money selling fewer copies. On the bright side though, the Switch version is likely to retain it's value for a long time compared to the more ubiquitous PS4 or X1 versions.
Oh it'll easily shoot past the ps3/360 without a doubt, it will be interesting see how it stacks up against ps4/Xbox one as it's a portable.
"Are you buying the interior version which is the most expensive ??? What's wrong with you people ???" Portability makes it the superior version for some. You should understand that your viewpoint isn't the only viewpoint out there. Some people have different priorities.
How many people are actually willing to pay more just to get this on NS? The cons of cartridges strikes again
depends.. I never played this game before. Not saying this is a game that lends well to being portable. But it's a choice I get to have at least.
Your about as triggered as all hell in these comments 😂😂😂 relax bro.
@Xabi - ?? really, my comment above is pretty neutral. I just find it hilarious how people complain because the Switch has no games, but then a game comes along and people question why anyone would play it on the Switch.
Don't listen to the trolls. It's a niche game for sure, and I totally understand why people won't like it. But if you like playing detective, interacting with people, reading their emotions and solving mysteries, it's a fantastic game. I've bought on 360, PC and I plan on buying it for my Switch. PS4 would be pointless for me since I own the PC version, but at least Switch is portable and has some nice extra little Switch features. People hating on the Switch that don't own one, are really missing out on good fun in general. Especially if you have friends (in real life) that also own a Switch. Makes for some good get togethers for some silly fun.
@neon People hating on switch, period. Whether it has games or not. Maybe Switch has mass market appeal. but the core gaming market (like the guys and gals here on n4g, people who read gaming websites, follow the news, watch game trailers on YouTube etc ) wanted the next true home console from Nintendo. Not a portable hybrid. Of course it's not 100% and everyone. I mean you're a core gamer here on the n4g community and you like the switch. But you're definitely in the minority'here. Also core gamers are not looking to have silly fun like playing twister in the after school program like kids. They want deep gaming experiences that are both fun and engrossing. Like horizon zero dawn and the witcher for example.
If I owned a switch I would since it's slim pickings
Gotta charge more for making the Switch :) Let's wait and see if it's justified...
Cost of the cart or additional work involved in producing a Switch port (assume PS4/XB just PC ports)? Bit of a bugger for those looking to get the Switch version though. Struggling to understand the rerelease anyhoo other than VR support (which is oddly exclusive to Vive).
nothing is exclusive to Vive. Unless it actually has a DRM hardware check built in (which can be cracked anyways). If it releases on Steam it'll work with the Rift. Unless you are bringing that up because of no PSVR support.
Sorry, to give it the official blurb “built specifically for the Vive”. Exclusive is the wrong term. But I brought it up purely because it’s in the press release.
@Fishy - gotcha. Yeah shame that there is no PSVR support.
Absolutely. I’m not really an advocate for VR but it’s the only worthwhile addition I can see in this rerelease and I don’t question that the PS4 is more than capable of running LA Noire on PSVR.
Gotta be the PS4 version for the Pro support.
Portable anywhere play for me with switch controls
"Cole Phelps: Badge Twelve Forty Seven..." "... how can I help detective?" That is burned into my memory!
The ps4 / xb1 version will cost 89 in Australia roughly 70 us dollars. I normally back Rockstar without question but the improvements will have to be game changing to buy this especially since I already own it on PS3 , 360 and PC
Why is everyone happy for old games ? This is £5 on the ps3 used. This gen is backwards. I want new ideas, new IP not buying the same game I bought last gen and didn't love it the first time around. Gamers should want more than this and remastered and slightly better versions of last year's game, plus backwards compatibility. What's wrong with you zombies?
Agree, but fanboy love their old stuff to be more shiny so they buy it again lmao
Really good news for everyone. I can't wait to play this on the pro. I would be willing to bet we will see RDD remastered before the new one realases.
This is what you get when you cut corners and nickel and dime your customers... A. Nintendo put a laughable at best 32 gb of storage in the switch knowing damn well consumers would have to purchase extra memory after their 300$ purchase. B. Nintendo went with cartridges because they didnt want to make another failed home console, and now thats biting them in the ass because carts cost more than discs to manufacture... When the same game on another console costs less. I cant wait to see how much they charge for 5 year old game... Cough skyrim cough
Micro SD not expensive, you can keep bringing it up but you forget how much consumers use to pay for memory cards back in the days, we have it much easier now, i would gladly pay 25 to 44 dollars for 128 gb when we had to buy memory for Xbox 360, or 32gb for vita.......we have choice if people do not want to get a big memory card like i have they can get a 64gb card which goes for 15 to 23 dollars, that covers this game and other big game release for switch
Lol i dont even know where to start... I realize you love nintendo... Its not that expensive? What would it take for you to go hmm maybe im spending too much to be a nintendo consumer??? The console itself has the odasity to be 299 priced as much as a ps4, yet they give you 32 GB... THIRTY TWO GB of storage where the competition gives 1 terabyte. Hmm The console itself has no disc drive, no hard drive, no innards like other **consoles** yet it costs as much?? Why! Nintendo went with carts this gen unlike their last **home console** and while 1st party offerings dont seem expensive to a nintendo gamer... until you have something to compare it to like with third party games on another platform like in. this.. article... Skyrim will be priced between 49.99-59.99 and yall nintendo ppl wont even bat an eye. The standard ps4 controllers cost 39.99 but a... Nintendo switch "pro controller" cost 69.99... Why is that exactly? Forget the fact the switch should come with at least bare minimum 500 gb of storage, now you have to spend more $$ on top of all this other crap for a memory card too! You bring up the fact we used to have to buy memory cards... Dude that was 2-3 generations ago... The og xbox did it first with ps2 trying to at the end of the 6th gen but by 7th gen (11 damn years ago) memory cards were a thing of the past with the ps3 giving 20-60 gb iterations initially. Yet... Here we are 11 years later we have nintendo giving 32 gb... If you cant admit thats a total ripoff, facepalm, ect... you sir are nintendos target audience! What im getting at with my comment 👆 is that nintendo nickel and dime every last penny from their consumers and now its finally starting to bite them in the ass... Not only is nintendos version of this game inferior graphically... But its also more expensive 😵😂 whattt? You cant get much more anticonsumer with any of these points ive made.
@sk8 The reason they charge what they do is because people will spend that much. There is no real rhyme or reason as to why it might be more or less. If it'll sell at a certain price, it'll be sold for that price. Anyhow, the MSRP for the DS4 is $49.99-59.99, not $39. Sony is probably selling 10X the number of controllers as Nintendo, so Nintendo is just trying to recoup the cost of having the controller in the first place by profitting more while selling less....which is why most things cost more in the first place. As far as the tech though, I do think they could have made it cheaper with what they have in it, but again, there are apparently plenty of people willing to pay that price. The decision on carts was likely for battery life and simplicity, and while it does cost more to make the games, it really only means that games don't get as large of a production run, and profit is taken away from the publisher since there is a limit on how high the cost of a game can go before people won't buy it.
i had to buy a bigger drive for my ps4 cuz even the physical games get installed on it anyway. I don't see y'all talkin about that every time you decide to bring up switch storage.
your response to my comment shows me how little you know, and now I can forgive you for being uneducated on the Switch Switch Pro controller have 40 hours of battery life, something my ps4 controller do not have, it have hd rumble, nfc reader, and etc so of course it will cost more, because it do more, if sony had a playstation controller with same features, they would charge 90 for it I can go on and on with your other comments but you should use intelligence and figure out why portable cost more than stationary, look up laptops and desktops and their price, and ask why laptops cost more? maybe then you will find the answer everything else just research, I feel proud to say I am helping someone on here, if you have any more questions google or bing search, and if you cant find the answers shoot me a message on here, I am here to help you
Not surprising the switch version costs the most, due to the cartridge card costing more compared to discs. Still nice to see it come to switch at least.
Ohhhhh got damn. Not good....not. good.
No thanks, I am sick and tired of companies re-releasing old games on the current consoles...those were last gen so let that go and bring new games to this gen...what do I know right..
If Rockstar is remaking games, give us GTA 4.
yes or ....read dead redemption
This is why it sucks to own the Switch lol The only exclusive features you're getting on the Switch are the stupid controls thats it.
Jesus...Nintendo fans still defending the more expensive switch version. How brain washed can a fan base get!? This shit happening is comparable to a vita version being more expensive than the PS4 version!!! Wake up and complain!!
Not sure why this game is getting a remake seeing as it wasn't all that great in the first place. The gun play and driving mechanics SUCKED.
Guess just wait for a few months for the switch cart
This generation sucks. It has more remasters than any generation before!!!
