The burglary and fraud desks were written during the planning stages of the game's development, but never actually implemented. They weren't "cut" and they're not sitting out there waiting to be released as DLC. I think it's much more likely that they were dropped for story and pacing reasons-- the game is already very episodic and draggy in places, the last thing they needed to do was draw it out even longer.

THIS. they could have EASILY released as dlc if space was the only problem, lol.

haters always lie to make 360 look bad. plus, i guarantee this will not be more than 3 discs on the 360. the others were 19.1gb or so, and now they can put 7.5gb per disc, so all the dlc (being around 1.5gb) will fit.

Just my two cents, but this game is incredible. In fact I would have to put it in my top 5 of all time. I could see it not being for some, due to not shooting people all the time, but there is action and plenty of detective work to do. I have purchased all the DLC and have every achievement in the game.

THIS (too)! only full game i've taken the time to get 1400/1400 on achievement score. great game. this new edition is crap, as buying everything seperately is WAY cheaper!

Thanks OP, looks like I will be picking up the complete collection once it hits $20 or so, just like the Read Dead Collection.



Why are you mad? You said you were happy to spend $60, what about this makes you mad now? Things always drop in price as demand drops off, or better packages are offered to try and gain more buyers. You paid $60 for the opportunity to play the game at release, there is no reason to be mad now.

Can't you buy the Rockstar pass everyone is mentioning?


I'm upset (shouldn't have used mad earlier) because the game came out just five months ago. I'm fine with paying $60 for a game on release day, but what's the point if everyone who doesn't gets more content at a cheaper price without having to wait very long? I understand that prices get cheaper, but a price drop with additional content so early after the game is released screws over people who wanted to support the game when it was first released.

I am currently playing this game (I believe I am about half way) and I must say, I haven't really enjoyed it much yet. Even this isn't really a good deal. I would wait for this to be <30 before picking it up.

It's basically reverse Grand Theft Auto. Idk, it's ultimately up to you guys but I have to say it wasn't worth the 60 I paid for it plus the 10 dollar DLC pass.

If you are undecided, wait for a better price.

I'm really surprised that they're actually calling this the "Complete" Edition instead of something more generic like "Ultimate" or whatever. Seems like it plays right into the perception that the initial release was a ripoff.


I'd love for a developer to say "Incomplete Edition!" on day one just to rub it in. "Now with 80% game, $59.99!"

Like you said, games get cheaper over time. The only surprise is that Rockstar is taking the time to put (what would normally be at this point) a $40 game and a $10 DLC code in a $50 MSRP box. This package is nothing that couldn't be had for the same total cost months ago for anyone who kept a close eye on the available deals.

You and the retailer agreed on a price when you bought it, and you enjoyed having it earlier than most other people. Just because the publisher decided to drop the price and add more content to entice more buyers doesn't mean you got screwed. I will still wait for the game to get even cheaper, but I always run the risk that a game might go OOP and get hard to find with that strategy. If that happens I'm not getting screwed, I just made that choice. That isn't going to happen with this game, but it happened with Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Ultimate Sith Edition.

Thanks for posting OP, even though I already knew about it. Be warned that there are people who will come in here and say "this isn't a deal!", posting a game at MSRP! Really this is good to know though, because those considering buying LA Noire should keep in mind that this will be coming out.


This.

Thanks OP. It pays to wait. I'll probably keep waiting until this version is like $20, but I'll play this game eventually.

Open spoiler at your own risk.

Me personally I got the game for $25 during the whole toys r us 2 for $50 fiasco, and the pass for $10. So $35 isn't too shabby.

only if you want more from the game. ask yourself that question and look deep within your soul. if you can't figure it out by then well go and rub one out and then think about it some more. thats usually the process i do when i can't make a decision.

This means I will probably be picking this up next March/April when it starts dropping in price.

:applause:

The Complete Edition will include all the DLC: the Nicholson Electroplating Arson case, Reefer Madness Vice case, The Consul’s Car Traffic case, The Naked City Vice case , A Slip of the Tongue Traffic case, The Badge Pursuit Challenge and all guns and suits( DLC ones, you still have to unlock many)

Great news. This was one of my favorite games of the last few years. I'm Glad I held off on getting the DLC. I suppose no GOTY Edition, but this is the same thing. Totally worth, in my opinion.

NOTE: PC Version will come out a week before the console versions



I was hoping that they'd include the former-PS3 exclusive case.

Does anyone know if you can just get the DLC from the disc (like the Fallout 3 add-ons)??

What's supposed to be the deal here? An over hyped game at MSRP is all I see. You can buy this game for about $20 used and I wouldn't be surprised to see $15 within a month.

Surprising. I guess the :360: release will be 4 discs then.

Nintendo appreciated early 3DS adopters well enough to give them 20 free games, though. Sure, that's not the same as an additional $100 in your pocket, but hey, at least it's something. I wish that practice was the norm. Plus you can tell people that you're an "ambassador" now! :)

This is starting to get really old. This and Marvel Vs Capcom are both comIng out in the same year as their original games. It's almost like they're giving the finger to everyone who supported them early, like me for LA Noire. I spent $60 and was happy to do it, but now I'm just mad.


One of the many reasons I think the Game industry is just hurting itself with these delayed roll out of a total package, and why I continue to put off purchasing titles far further in the future. It's like if you bought a car and they first sold you the outer package and then later down the line decided you need features like seat belts or lights.

And in all honestly, I remember how I was constantly derided on this board for my comments on the fact that Capcom was going to re-release Marvel. A lot of people were quite adamant over the fact that Capcom "promised" not to release a complete copy and would only do DLC :roll::roll::roll::roll::roll::roll:

So wait? There hasn't been any word yet on a disc version of the DLC by itself. Like Episodes of Liberty City and Undead Nightmare?

I have LA Noire in my backlog from the Kmart deal when it was first released.
I would prefer buying the DLC separately rather than buying the collection, unless I can just pass the DLC disc along to my brother.

I mean, I could give him the main game and we could just share the DLC disc or install it like how Borderlands and Fallout 3 worked.


A disc only DLC could have made sense, I guess. I did end up buying undead nightmare, but only because it was truly ridiculously cheap. What was the DLC that you could only play by buying the RDR Complete copy?

I don't like buying DLC because eventually it's going to be gone. The server could get taken down or your code could expire or you redeemed it too many times or whatever. You also can't trade/resell DLC. Ever tried selling a vanilla copy of a game once the GOTY version came out? It's like trying to resell a sports title.

I doubt I'll buy many/any new titles on day one ever again. I'm not hurting, my backlog is epic. The only two games I might bother purchasing anytime soon are this LA Noire and definitely Fallout NV Ultimate Edition or whatever they're calling it.

Picked up L.A. Noire for $6.50 the other day, with "The Consul's Car" DLC. Barely started playing it, but so far it seems different enough to enjoy. Sure wouldn't spend more than 20 for it, even for the "complete" version.

I agree! I was one of the suckers that paid full price for it. I traded it back in while it still had great value and purchased it again recently for $14.99

I knew there was a reason why i stopped buying new full priced games and i plan on sticking to that in the future.

Yeah, it's kinda crazy now days to pay 60 bones for a new game, especially if it doesn't have great multi-player. Game prices drop much quicker than they did a few years back.
