Rockstar Hints At GTAIV DLC On PS3, Teases L.A. Noire
Rockstar has a lot to talk about these days, and that includes the upcoming Red Dead Redemption, L.A. Noire and downloadable content for Grand Theft Auto IV.
The latter two topics are of special interest to PlayStation 3 owners, primarily because L.A. Noire was initially announced as a PS3 exclusive (but has since gone multiplatform, as far as we know) and the recent DLC for GTAIV has been restricted to the Xbox 360 and PC. Therefore, it's not surprising to see both topics pop up over at Rockstar's official blog, where several important questions finally received answers. For instance, when asked why The Ballad of Gay Tony wasn't released for the PS3, the reply was as follows:
"We know that it continues to be an often-asked question – and believe us, we understand the frustration of PS3 owners like yourself who haven’t been able to play any of our most recent releases. All we can say is that we at Rockstar promise to be very good to you with our releases in 2010. Please stay with us and stay tuned!"
While we know Rockstar's Agent is a PS3 exclusive, it seems L.A. Noire will be available on the 360 and PC, but we still haven't heard much about this mysterious title. The latest report was that development was going very well and that we should expect something very special, but how's about an update? In reply, Rockstar said:
"There will be something great to see soon – a proper in-depth look at the game and why it is so ground breaking and innovative, both in terms of the game’s design and the amazing new technology to support it. Expect to see a long-awaited reveal via a big cover story next month."
Well, that's good to know. How long have we been waiting on L.A. Noire now? A few years, at least. And prior to this, we had heard a rumor that all available downloadable content for GTAIV would eventually find its way to the PS3, so perhaps that will be verified next month as well. We'll definitely let you know one way or the other.
