L.A.Noire in "final production phase"?

The Team Bondi site has been dead since 2006 when the trailers for L.A.Noire were first aired, until 2 months ago when this was posted:

"We're looking to expand our Animation Team to cope with the final production phase of L.A. Noire. "

Clearly the game, although claimed vapourware by Take Two at their E3 press conference last week is well on it's way to being finished.

So it this game exclusive or what? Is it coming out for both platform or just sony's ps3?

beast5549d ago

Next Generation ConsoleS... as in plural. So i am pretty sure multi

Real gamer 4 life5549d ago

Anyone know why sony stop funding this project?

NO_PUDding5549d ago

The is reason for confusion becuase Take Two stated it was exclusive, only last October.

And SCEA apparently funded the project.

But then the site says next-gen consoles.

So which is it? I would assume it's PS3 exclsuive, sicne Team Bondi, clearly haven't updated their site since it was created, and more to the point, if the Publisher (althoguh it is Rockstar, under Take Two) Take Two, is fine with it being exclsuive; the people interested in the money, then why it wouldn't be, I don't know.

Safest bet is to wait and see. Not many things are exclsuive these days.

Megaton5549d ago (Edited 5549d ago )

I think it's gonna be multi. Take Two has been vocal about the possibility, and Sony dropped funding awhile ago.

NO_PUDding5549d ago

Take Two have been quite the opposite. They have been vocal about it being exclusive, last June.

The last time this agme was mentioned, it was a press release that stated it was still exclusive. And it had been shifted back to fiscal '09.


Megaton5549d ago (Edited 5549d ago )

"The financial report also stated that fellow Take-Two title LA Noire is due out in fiscal 2008. The spokesperson suggested that both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 releases are likely, stating, 'LA Noire is being developed for next-generation systems.'"


It's old, but most of the news on this title is.

NO_PUDding5549d ago

The article is in relation to to the report that says it's for the Playstation 3.

The Rockstar spokesperson is obviously quoting from Team Bondi's website, that hadn't been updated since 2004. This holds far less weight than an actual fiscal report. And it holds little credibility, since we still haven't seen the 360 exclsuive DLC, and GTAIV, did not come out in October.

The fact is, Team Bondi, consists solely of members from Sony's First party (ex-Team SOHO employees), and they were then bound in an exclsuive agreement, and ofcourse the project was funded by SCEA (originally, and possibly still). The were the team that created the original 'The Getaway'.

Dark vader5549d ago

beavis4play5549d ago

What will be even better is when you finally get to ride the normal school bus, instead of the short bus you are relegated to.

Stupid fishhead - you should slap your mother for not using birth control all those years back and letting you spawn on this planet.

Seriously, who let you out of your cage numb nuts?

juuken5549d ago

...Didn't it occur to you that this may probably be the secret game Sony was talking about that's exclusive to the PS3? There's no real indication on whether it's coming to both consoles yet. Keep sucking on that piece of information Crab because you are one dumbass bot.

Silogon5549d ago (Edited 5549d ago )

Junken I'm sure it has occurred to many of us but the thing is you're probably one of the many livestock complaining about Fat princess right now so your words have no merit.

Be gone. I hear McDonald's is expanding their dollar menu for you.

Edit to MS. Berthafaye

Listen, Ham hock... We all know about you. all of us and if you have to "reckon" my comment didn't hurt you then I "reckon" it did. So we're back at square 1. you being a popsicle popper and me being right.

juuken5549d ago

I reckon that your insults had no effect on me whatsoever and you're a little f*cktard.

I actually laughed.

Now go suck on some Greenburg/Kim c*ck and let grownups talk here.

Thy silly twofaced moron.

jcfilth5549d ago

wow these xbots are really really desperate for some PS3 games.
Why don't they just buy a PS3??

eagle215549d ago

You sit around like beggars on the street "oooh please can we get a pretty PS3 game"... we just want to play b3yond like Sony fans.

Everytime you guys think you have won, tommorow's news comes and bites your ass.

"FFXIII on 360, not released in Japan"....FAIL. How do you win without the biggest market for the game? :)

GiantEnemyCrab5549d ago (Edited 5549d ago )

LOL @ Jerkstore. Did I hit a nerve you internet pusssy?
So I state facts about what is available for platforms and you throw out the insults. You and Juuken can get together and wipe each others tears. I guess I would insult your mom but we all know you were born a butt baby out of your daddies ass. Now go cry some more because LA Noire IS ON THE 360 BEOTCH! HAHAHAHAHAHA! <- that's me laughing in your face!

Not even going to reply to you Juuken I think you've been owned enough in this thread and I'm sure you are probably stuffing that cow hole of yours with McDonalds now you know about that dollar menu expansion.

@1.5: Desperate for PS3 games? No try you fishheads are desperate for games period. You've claimed this as some PS3 exclusive when what platforms the game would support have never been confirmed. It's been NEXT GEN CONSOLES for over a year.

@Siligon: "Listen Ham hock" ROFLMAO!!! That was a classic burn right there! +Bub

I love fishhead tears!! Cry some more you nuttjobs!

Le-mo5549d ago

L.A. Noire is exclusive to the Playstation 3. SCEA is funding the project.


Real gamer 4 life5549d ago
