Rumor: L.A. Noire Still A PS3 Exclusive
The saga surrounding Team Bondi's long-anticipated L.A. Noire continues, but we remain without any official details from official sources.
The latest evidence that the game in question not only still exists but is also a PlayStation 3 exclusive was located by PS3Center. The job listing at Team Bondi's site shows they're working on up to "3 exclusives for the next generation of PlayStation," and although that can easily include the PSP, we're thinkin' at least one or two are for the PS3. The postings use the wording: "demonstrate techniques in modeling for both low poly and subdivision" and "a passion for cars would help." Beyond this, we don't know much. We do know that we've been waiting for more news and updates on L.A. Noire, and the last piece of information we had said it would be a multiplatform game. Most just accepted this as a matter of course, primarily because most all third-party developers are going multiplatform these days. It's a matter of necessity, really; the cost of producing a next-gen title is so high that it only makes sense to approach as many possible consumers as possible.
But again, most everything is still rumor and speculation until Team Bondi or Sony steps forward with something concrete. For now, it's enough to know that up to 3 PS3 exclusives could be on the way, and one of them might still be L.A. Noire.
