Rumor: LA Noire not Playstation 3 exclusive after all?

Team Bondi's new game L.A. Noire is a 1940's detective thriller, published by Rockstar Games. When GTA IV was delayed, LA Noire was also moved back to 2009 and was listed only for Playstation 3. However, a job listing over at Gamasutra reveals that L.A. Noire might not only be a Playstation 3 game, but also a Xbox 360 game.

Team Bondi is looking for a talented Lead Animator to manage the Animation pipeline, team and motion capture for the project. At the bottom of the page however, we find that this 'project' is on both Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms. So is L.A. Noire really a Playstation 3 exclusive, or will it go multi-platform?

What's even funnier is the fanboys take him seriously.

this doesnt prove nothing. we have to wait and see for a official conformation. all its saying is that they are looking for a lead animator that can work on both xbox 360 and the ps3 platform. there are looking for a lead animator that can work for both platform not just one, maybe for their future titles. doesnt mean that the game is being released as a multiplatform game.

AznSniper3399d ago

This comment answers the whole argument.

rofldings3399d ago

Yeah, just like Bioshock came to PS3 just because they were looking for a PS3 coder ... not.

Watkins3399d ago

As with that new PC game (forgot the name good looking with nano suit...), they were hiring PS3-devs before the game was completed. Look how that turned out ...
THis is nothing to even talk about.

The Killer3399d ago

so more opportunities will come! maybe someone good at all the requirement and when he sees its only for ps3 then he wont go there but if he sees 360 they he will at least contact them, and after he knows how much he gets he will forget about which platform it will go to!

m91058263399d ago

Animators do the same job no matter what platform they develop for. They do mostly all of their work in an app like Maya or 3D Studio Max. I should know, I'll be doing it for a living in about 8 months...

Polluted3398d ago

@rofldings: I remember that story. Then all the xbox fanboys were saying that it was meaningless and it didn't necessarily mean that the posting was for a programmer for Bioshock PS3. Of course it probably was meaningless in the end, but why should this be any different?

sonarus3398d ago

well the only reason for it to stay ps3 exclusive is if sony paid for it or there are technical limitations preventing a 360 port.

ravinash3398d ago

Team Bondi is looking for a Lead Animator.
And last time I checked, this company makes games for both Xbox360 and PS3, so wouldn't it stand to reason that when they hire someone, that they will be working on both systems at some point or another???
LA Noire is a PS3 exclusive at this time, and until there is an official announcement, there will be no difference.
Are we going to have to go through this crap with every PS3 or 360 exclusive that comes out???

Rockstar isn't going to limit their potential by developing on inferior hardware. They'll sell just enough on PS3, and 360 owners will probably be happy still playing Halo 3.

Fanboy anything?

Both PS3 and 360 will have superior games.

Inferior Hardware? Why? Where does PS3 has Bioshock or Mass Effect?

PS3 will have exclusives and 360 will have exclusives. But not this game

mesh13399d ago

"Rockstar isn't going to limit their potential by developing on inferior hardware"

Are you *that* gullible and clueless? Sony has the marketing-wool pulled right over your eyes. Are you the kind of person who buys water-filters from telephone-marketers? Do you send money to African Email Scammers? Do you buy penny gold-exploration stocks?

How do people like you _survive_ in the world being so gullible and, dare I say it, stupid?

Look, EVERY reputable hardware comparison has delivered much the same verdict; the two are different, but mostly equal in potential. Microsoft's development environment (and system design) is vastly superior - but the two machines are roughly equal-horsepower.

Dont take my word for it, here is what IGN said in their hardware shootout:

"CONCLUSION: When you break down the numbers, Xbox 360 has provably more performance than PS3. Keep in mind that Sony has a track record of over promising and under delivering on technical performance. The truth is that both systems pack a lot of power for high definition games and entertainment. "

STOP repeating Sony marketing as if it were gospel.
STOP making yourself look naive here on N4G and elsewhere on the interwebs.
STOP repeating empty-headed fanboy crap.

The PS3 isnt some kind of nuclear-powered-mega-HAL-9000- AI machine. Its roughty as good as an Xbox 360 -- NO FCUKING MORE.

There is NOT some kind of secret well of untapped mega hardware lurking in the PS3.

The developers have had ample (equal to the Xbox 360 teams) to build work with the development kits, so I dont want to hear that "1st gen ps3 vs. 2nd gen Xbox 360 games blah blah blah" BULLSHIAT either.

You people need to WAKE THE FRACK UP.

IF you want to play these games buy a PS3. This game is PS3 exclusive X360 cannot run it hahahaha.

Also who told you if you get that job you work in LA Noire?

There was something similar about this of Overlord. In job it said PS3 too but there is no Overlord on PS3

X360 got so much AAA titles why don't you play them instead always wishing PS3 games?

wageslave3399d ago

"X360 got so much AAA titles why don't you play them instead always wishing PS3 games? "

Well, why not want it all? The fact still remains, that the Xbox 360 library is better regarded than the PS3 library.

Admit it or not, clearly 17.7 Million people have chosen to play the games on the Xbox 360 as opposed to the < 8 Million PS3.

Sorry -- the market *is* choosing, and its choosing Xbox 360 by leaps and bounds.

I want you to take a second out of your life and fixate your attention deficit disordered self on these words:

Kristan Reed: How are you funding the project? Has SCEA given you an advance or is this self-funded and totally independent?

Brendan McNamara: The project is wholly funded by Sony Computer Entertainment America. We have a long-term exclusive arrangement with SCEA.

Did that not register? Or is your MS firewall too ignorant in order this to get through your skull. One more time I guess...

Kristan Reed: How are you funding the project? Has SCEA given you an advance or is this self-funded and totally independent?

Brendan McNamara: The project is wholly funded by Sony Computer Entertainment America. We have a long-term exclusive arrangement with SCEA.

Is it starting to sink in yet? Maybe not, how about another time just in case...

Kristan Reed: How are you funding the project? Has SCEA given you an advance or is this self-funded and totally independent?

Brendan McNamara: The project is wholly funded by Sony Computer Entertainment America. We have a long-term exclusive arrangement with SCEA.

And now in caps...

Kristen Bell, the interviewer asks, "HOW ARE YOU FUNDING THE PROJECT"?

Brendan McNamara, one of the founders of Team Bondi, responded with, "THE PROJECT IS WHOLLY FUNDED BY SONY COMPUTER ENTERTAINMENT AMERICA. WE HAVE A LONG-TERM EXCLUSIVE ARRANGEMENT WITH SCEA."

Well, it looks like there is no need for any further confirmation of it's exclusivity. This right here is enough to kill this humorous, yet desperate, rumor.

And FYI to many of those still lingering this news, I think it's safe to say that with 2008 in mind, this out-spoken 8.8 Million PS3 owners to the 17.7 Million 360 owners can be a simple ratio of patient, well rewarded gamers to desperate, left 4 dead gamers.

PS3 gamers of 2007 learned a great deal about quality over quantity. But in 2008, PS3 gamers can forget that line 'cause they'll be treated to both. Good lookin' out Sony.
