L.A. Noire Coming to 360 After All?

LA Noire


What? Would you rather I stir the MGS4 exclusivity cauldron for a millionth time? Let’s give the fanboys something fresh to fight over.

Recently, Videogamer was keen to point out a job listing over at Gamasutra that could provide clear evidence that L.A. Noire may once and for all be heading to Microsoft’s Xbox 360. Well… if job listings are enough sheer proof for you, that is.

The job advertisement posted is specifically for Lead Animator at Team Bondi. The ad states: “Team Bondi is an independent game development company based in Sydney, Australia, producing next-generation console titles. The current title in development, L.A. Noire is a 1940′s detective thriller being published by Rockstar Games.”

The most interesting detail to note here is that the job lists Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 as the platforms one so inclined would developing on.

One might even be so bold as to compare Rockstar Games’ console exclusivity indecisiveness regarding its upcoming black & white stylized 1940′s setting game to that of a certain opposite sex. Yet, in fear of my life, I won’t go there either.

Still, it does bring L.A. Noire‘s console exclusivity into question – even if for the millionth time.

While it was never announced as a PS3 exclusive the fact that it was only listed for PS3 make some Sony fans jump to conclusions, to be honest i don’t expect any games released this year, that arent directly funded by Sony to stay exclusive.

Software developers are in this business to make money like anybody else and as of yet PS3 does not have the user base to make the heavily invested games of this gen profitable on it’s own.

If you look at Drakes Fortune, arguablely the best and most eagerly awaited PS3 game of 2007, and it only managed to hit the charts at no.28, Sony has some big titles coming this year which should sell some units but untill their user base grows, even games like MGS4 will likely only be timed exclusives.

P.S. I own all 3 consoles and have no bias towards any of them, the consumer wins when there is healthy competition, these are just my thoughts.

A very discernable observation, John. It’s nice to see someone post some constructive insight.

Ahhh Ivan_PSP, What little you know if that much.Team Bondi(Rockstar Games) is as stated An independent company and not some sony offshoot, so thier intitled to produce games for any console that they see fit, Yes even the “Wii” And as for your use of the word “crapbox” is it not true that the less selling system is what most people would consider to be crap? And what games do the PS3 have for any other console owners would drool over? Ans:NONE
All this is just my opinion.
So let’s all play nice and have fun ok “Alright then”.

1:It’s Team Bondi not Team Bondie.

2:Team Bondi is an independent development house and not part of London Studio, Team Bondi was started by the former manager of Team SOHO and that where the connection ends.

3:see 2

4:excellent…to bad number 4 had nothing to do with the topic.

5: Sony does not own Team Bondi, Team Bondi is under contract with Sony to produce three games for the PS3 and that’s it.

In other words, you haven’t a clue….Team Bondi can easily release L.A. Noir for the 360 and PC and are under no obligation to keep this as a PS3 exclusive title.

Next time do some research please and not jump the fanboy gun before you actually have some facts to back up your statements O.K.?
