The "Rockstar Pass" was released today on Xbox Live Marketplace and includes all the pre-order DLC exclusives like the cases "A Slip of the Tongue" (Walmart) and "The Naked City," (Gamestop) the suits "The Broderick" (Amazon) and "The Sharpshooter" (Best Buy) as well as the "Badge Pursuit Challenge" (Gamestop) from which you can unlock "The Button Man" suit. Also when the upcoming cases ("Nicholson Electroplating Disaster" and "Reefer Madness") come out they will be free to download for Rockstar Pass owners. It's 800 MS points ($10) until June 14 when it will increase to 960 points ($12). Cases (320 points or $4) and suits (80 points or $1) are also available to purchase separately. The PSN will have the same deal when it comes back online.

The "Chicago Piano Gun" is also available to download for FREE for everyone without having to buy the pass.

Does anyone else really feel kind of bad for people who bought those pre-order DLC cases for like $35 each and the suits for around $15 each? Anyone going to buy this? I know I am.

Hopefully the same deal is offered to PS3 owners once the store is back.

You should note it's available through PSN for PlayStation users for $10 and will go up to $12 on June 14 (assuming the PSN Store comes online soon...)

So I hear the game is breaking consoles. Haven't bought it yet myself, so I'm going to wait for a patch or someone to clear that up. However, I will definitely pick up the pass since I know I will eventually play this game.

Have 3 demo SSB codes for trade. Already have last 6 Club Nintendo Wii U eshop games from Club Nintendo. Will take any Wii U eshop game codes I don't already have or Non CN 3DS eshop code.

The 360 version is hardly inferior. If you look at the comparisons they are actually identical. The only difference is the 360 version has 3 discs.

This is what Rockstar said about the console overheat issue:
“We have received some reports of PS3s overheating while playing L.A. Noire or beeping three times before shutting down/turning themselves off, mostly on older 60GB and 80GB fat models,” said the company. “Primary reports seem to be that updating to firmware 3.61 will cause PlayStations to overheat. There have been various reports of this on a few different games now, all reporting their PS3s turning off or “Red Lighting” after having installed 3.61.”

Nope, it's causing problems there too but what it's really doing is killing off all the fat PS3's.

Sony's really taking a hit lately

R* claims there will be no DLC after Reefer Madness in July. The R* Pass covers all the DLC announced today.

Seems worth it, especially if each case is 320 MSP separately.

Did you intentionally forget to post their comment on the 360 version as well? Funny how that works.

Here it is for those that care:
"With the launch of L.A. Noire a very small number of Xbox 360 console owners have reported issues with the game freezing or locking up while playing. We posted some troubleshooting tips on our support site for these very few people, a common practice for any game publisher. "

So, is the Consular's Car case staying exclusive?

No I didn't even know about the comment about the 360. Regarding the "Consul's Car" case, I assume that will stay exclusive to PS3 owners.

Guess it was just PS3: http://kotaku.com/58...ps3-overheating

Although there were initial reports of Xbox freezing, but it seems to be fixed by just installing the game to the hard drive (based on reading the comments): http://kotaku.com/58...orically-untrue

And I thought there were initial reports of audio syncing issues or frame rate drops in the Xbox version, but maybe it was just something with the intro (also based on the comments I quickly skimmed in the Kotaku article).

Anyways, I would prefer the PS3 version myself just because of disc swapping, assuming I run into no overheating issues ;)

There is a graphical comparison out there for those of you fanboys that care enough about it. All I got out of it like other comparisons is that one version does some things better than the others and vice versa. That might have been where I read the PS3 frame rates being more consistent though, so maybe there's enough of a difference between the two ;)

I have gotten up to the 8th case without a single freeze or issue on my 120 Gig PS3.

Must just be an issue with Phat PS3's, and older 360's

I wouldnt be surprised though, Red Dead Redemption pretty much killed off my first PS3. And i think GTA4 contributed to the Disc Read Error my 2nd 360 got <_<

Those people deserve it. Overpaying for DLC the first couple of weeks after launch is ridiculous. It happened here, it happened with Mortal Kombat and it will keep happening because people are crazy stupid some times.

I have no sympathy for people who overspend on DLC when history shows that it all comes out anyway...and I don't think they care, they just want to collect it all regardless of cost.

Anyway, interesting that no more new cases are planned after July...maybe a complete edition will be available sooner than I thought.

Hmmm, that's interesting. So it's 2 cases and 2 suits that are "worth" $10 in individual DLC, plus the exclusive badge challenge and then two more upcoming cases and another suit. An additional $5 of content and whatever the badge challenge is valued at if even available separately.

I may have to jump on this even though I got the game from Gamestop. It would be about the same for the additionals (even if I don't really need the suits) and I can trade or give away the DLC I have. Interesting move Rockstar.

Lord Kefka... you're insatiable.

I'm excited about this. I picked up the Rockstar Pass this morning, along with the free gun. I didn't think the pre-order cases would be so cheap when they got released, and then add some pre-order suits, the badge challenge, and 2 more additional cases in the future, and this is a no brainer bargain buy for me. I am loving the game and can't wait to check out the new content.

Might as well wait for the inevitable GotY edition which will probably have all this announced DLC and I'm sure more to come. GTA4 already has one and I've seen rumors of a RDR one coming.
