Amazon, Gamestop & Walmart recently updated the box art for the PS3 version with the Exclusive Content/ Only on PS3 logo. Looks like an exclusive case called Consul's Car Traffic for PS3.
That's a good boxart.
Red Dead Redemption also had exclusive content. Hopefully the trend will continue. There is always space on the Blu Ray to be able to deliver extra content.
Oooooooooh! CASE. Like in a case that a detective takes. Taking the case. I thought case like box and I was like....that's lame.
"Yes, but it was not worth for getting the inferior looking version." That doesn't make sense. With one you get more. With the other you get less, but nicer lipstick. You prefer less with nice lipstick, but you don't know a good deal when you see it.
When the extra content is indeed a good deal, that's probably worth getting the slightly inferior looking version, but when it's as pointless as it was for RDR (a new gang hideout and a skin ?), I see no reason not to get the best looking version just for 10 min of extra content on a 30h+ game. The new case in LA noire sounds like a great exclusive content though.
I remember Agent was essentially made a PS3 exclusive to make up for the exclusive content 360 got from GTA. Well now with the exclusive content on PS3 for RDR and now LA Noire, its starting to look like Agent either lost its exclusivity or has been cancelled.
"You prefer less with nice lipstick, but you don't know a good deal when you see it." He's probably the guy who takes the ugly fat friend so his mate can get her hot friend.
MS gets exclusive content - "They bribed them with their deep pockets! Typical MS tactic!" Sony gets exclusive content - "This is a good deal. Sony are good!"
MS gets exclusive content -"They bribed them with their deep pockets! Typical MS tactic!" Sony gets exclusive content -"This is a good deal. Sony are good!" Actually I think you'll find Sony kinda did pay for this, in that they had already pumped millions into the production of the game before letting it go and Rockstar picking up the pieces. Rather than Sony saying, "hold on there Rockstar, that'll be x million please". They said, "ok you can have it, but we get Agent and some exclusive content for LA noire".
Why is everyone actually praising rockstar at the moment. Am I the only one who remembers GTA4 being too serious and stripping all the fun out, now since then we got RDR, Next is LA Noire, Agent. And then GTA5? Its been years since they planned to make anything even close to as good as the old GTA games so why is everyone praising their new serious direction thats devoid of all the old fun their games used to have?
Have they even showed the 360 version? I wasn't too impressed with the visuals of the game at PAX (though the game play and story were AAA quality so whatever). Because the PS3 is the lead platform, this seriously worries me about the 360 version. The fact they haven't shown it makes it even scarier.
I actually hope the trend of exclusive content for multiplatform releases ceases. I think it is a terrible practice to favor one sect of your supporters over another. Making a game exclusive is one thing, but if you are going to sell your product to two different groups of people then you should treat them the same.
la noire is looking good! i still havent decided wether or not i will get the 360 or ps3 version.. now to those talking about the agent, i think you will be upset, coz i think this has either been canned or is now multi!! we will see
I expect Sony to announced this exclusive DLC plus others for other games at E3. EDIT: sorry, didnt realise its release date is actually before. My mistake, still i expect Sony to announce dlc for other games.
nah i doubt it the game comes out a month before E3
"still i expect Sony to announce dlc for other games." - just DLC? aren't you mistaken Sony with the other console maker? I prefer full games announcement over DLC any day of the week!
"That's a good boxart." I actually hate the exclusive strips look. It's poorly done with its half ass look and clashes with everything
No, it's not. It's actually pretty ugly, even more considering the actually cool RDR boxart. Should've been black and white, kind of like this: http://img29.imageshack.us/... Just for PS3 and add the "exclusive content" thing. @_Empath_ "and it doesn't have that hot dead chick on the cover." That's the point; she feels horribly out of place. For a game that's basically based on a noir theme, having COLOR in the cover is pretty retarded.
Hell no. That boxart looks too drab and it doesn't have that hot dead chick on the cover. LAME
that 360 cover looks like someone just photocopied it lol.
I agree Neckbear, the cover art could have been different, like b&w. Thankfully the game isn't affected by it :D I'm hoping this turns out to be good one..
I usually don't care about boxart but I have to agree, that is a seriously cool cover.
It's official. Now EVERY game I'm buying this year will say Only on PlayStation on the box.
wow looks like the xbox 360 version will be better, like rdr and ac brotherhood, rockstar and ubisoft gave the ps3 users exclusive content because they had to play the worst version of the game
Batman: Arkham Asylum, Dante's Inferno, BioShock (post patch), Medal of Honor, Dead Space 2, Mortal Kombat 9 and Portal 2 say hi.
Could you give me a calculation on how much worse the experiences are on PS3 for those games in percentages. Is x360 versions like 100% and PS3 versions like 98%? 97%? Am I missing even more pecentages? Tell you what. You put your x360-exclusives + the percentical differences against PS3 exclusives and maybe then you see how utterly pathetic you sound..... Without a PS3 you miss out on 20 franchises of games and without x360 you miss out on 3 franchises of games and 2-3% of some multiplats. This is no competition really so what do you think your comment means to PS3 gamers? Some people still live in 2007 it seems LOL!
I feel sorry for u 360 gamers xD If you think a game is superior because of a small texture differecne, then you're retarded if you bought a 360. 360 gamers contradict themselves, "we have better graphics on out version" xD FYI: It's possible to build a pc with much higher specs than a 360 for less than 300us$.
*better picture* http://i.imgur.com/eTDM4.jp...
Does this mean its gonna be watered down port too then?
Port? The PS3 is the lead platofrm. You don't know much about this game do you?
Funny thing.. So was Ghost Busters and we all know how that turned out now, dont we? Know your facts kid. Every PS3 game that gets exclusive DLC for PS3 is 10 to 1 watered down. RDR,Mafia 2 ,Mass Effect 2 and now LA Noire. PLUS IT WAS THE LEAD PLATFORM. It wouldve stayed an exclusive, the only 3rd party company I know who does PS3 as lead platfrom from time to time is EA. Go figure
I was going to get it for ps3 anyways so this is good i guess but I still don't like all this pre order bonus crap. I have to buy from ten different locations to get a complete game. atleast release a special edition for $10 more with all the pre order bonuses so people don't have to choose. i guess the only good thing is they will release all the stuff as dlc later except the ps3 case.
its coming to psn via la downloable
Your comment made me laugh. "via la downloable" lmao!!!!
This exclusive DLC crap needs to end. That's what you have all that extra disc space for.
I agree, instead of exclusive DLC, a whole exclusive game or GTFO. I wouldn't jump for joy for Agent.
yeah i saw this last night on RAW :)
RAW as in wrestling? thats still on tv?
People still watch wrestling?
ahha thats what im saying!
Saw that commercial during RAW last nite. Most likely getting the PS3 version from Amazon or GameStop.
free release day ship and no tax makes amazon the only place for me to buy games nowadays besides the 10 or 20$ credits that keep popping up for every game. Gamestop is a ripoff almost all the time.
Cool, but nothing major. Similar to the exclusive Red Dead content.
It better be in the commercial!
I'd rather have exclusive DLC content similar to GTA4 rather than one extra costume or mission or something else minor. Honestly, Rockstar acts like its doing ps3 users a favour, but its really not.
umm you do know its FREE, they're not charging to $.99.
sony has good tastes, they get exclusive content for games like arkum, red dead, mortal kombat, dantes inferno and now this. ill take that over gta or call of duty any day. i like all those games way more its my personal preference.
So it's DLC? WHAT A LOAD OF SHIT Put it on the Blu-ray devs.
Its pretty dumb since its DLC but they probably do this to get people to buy the game original. If i recall correctly Bioware did the same thing with the CerebusNetwork.
I wonder what David Cage will say about this!
Not to be a stick in the mud, but you put it in the xbox 360 section when it's ps3 specific news?, sure the games going to be on 360 too but this dlc isn't.
Here's hoping that this isn't some sort of gift to make up for the lack of any graphical features that are present in the 360 version. You know about the PS3 version of Mafia II, right? Yep.. No Motion Blur, No Blood effects & also, Missing Grass.. All of which are in present in the 360 version.
While there is no excuse for the PS3 missing those items, they aren't really noticeable when driving or in a gunfight.
Dude as a proud PS3 myself even if you cant see it while doing high speed chases would still be nice to know its there... Its the little things that always count the most
GAME, Amazon, Play.com all have exclusive pre-order missions, which should have been included on the disc. No doubt they will be available down the line on PSN/XBL. It's crap.
HA! guess I made the right call with my pre-order. It's not a "side mission" folks, it's a whole case, so there will be a story to it and everything.
all leading up to an AGENT E3 Reveal.
Hell yeah! EDIT: Shit I forgot, I only got three bubbles :(
that is all i care about
I'm so getting the PS3 version.
Like you even own a 360.
This is cool ... Boy R* if u were a girl id eat u up so dam right now... My R*Games most wanted list: 1-AGENT 2-MaxPayne3 3-GTAV ( SAN ADREAS FOR THE LOVE OF GOOD GUYS and girls ;) 4-LA noire 5-GTA SAN ADREASSSS 2 OR HD remake OR SAN ADREAS STORIES (NGP) !!!!
This sucks for 360-exclusive owners; hopefully it comes out for them to.
It won't. Remember RDR exclusive outfits!
That shouldn't be the case, man. I own both and I think everyone should get everything. That goes for preorder bonuses, special edition DLC, everything (and eventually, timed-exclusives are ok in my book as long as the publishers let the people know up front when they'll come out).
The game hasn't even come OUT yet and people are babbling about how it's gonna look better on the 360? STFU and wait for the REAL results! The same thing happened with Crysis 2!
Looks like sony moneyhatted rockstar again like with Red dead redemption.
I will wait until reviews about the comparison before i will deceide if the exclusive content is worth it.
