: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

Wow they learned from milkcom fast didn't they lol. Good game though with lost of potential for lost of improvement. My question is will there be an extra disk or two for the 360 as it already has 3 ?

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.

Watched my gf play this and thought it was boring as all hell. I'd wait till this drops to 20-30 if you're undecided.

Already bought the discounted DLC pass thing, just waiting for the vanilla edition to drop to <$20.

I've played this game. Your impressions are right on. Overrated, imo.

It sure was :( I bought and stopped playing after a few hours of dull dullness made my head hurt. I don't see what everyone like about it.

Exactly. Plus I saw a similar thread when the RDR: GOTY Edition was announced, and no one seemed to take issue.

how about the 2 full desks they cut from the game? I thought these will be DLCs

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.

Already put this game to bed so the only thing I'm concerned about is whether the Consul's Car case will be offered separately on XBLM, and if they are going to add new achievements for it.

They didn't say it up front but it was because the 360 disk format would have required them to have more than 3 disks. They just said neither version could fit it all to not make anyone look bad. Of course when the ps3 version still has one disk when this is released they will look like fools

Man, couldn't they make it available through DLC or something. I would have loved an additional two desks.

Usually I don't feel awful about buying it on release date but I feel ripped off since it was incomplete...

they gave reasons like so players can focus on the story, but I knew the real reason is they can sell them as DLCs later.

I believe the desks are called Burglary, and Fraud

So why should I get the Complete Edition for $50 instead of getting it used from Gamefly for $20 and then buying the Rockstar pass for $12?

I already own this because I was able to pick up L.A. Noire for $10 at launch, and I bought the discounted DLC pass. Definitely worth it. My girlfriend and I are still playing through this game right now. It'll drop lower over time, but if you haven't played it yet you should do it now. I'm positive you could get a used copy for around $20 from GameFly.

I wonder if the 360 version will come with the consul's car dlc, as i remember that was a ps3 exclusive.

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.

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.

It was in an interview with 1Up right before the game came out. They had to cut the fraud (which took place after traffic) and burglary (which took place before homicide) desks out of the game so they could fit it on 1 Blu-Ray and keep it at just 3 disks on 360.

If you listen carefully when you have your first day in homicide, the Irish captain says you were promoted from burglary, not traffic.

This was one of my favorite games of the year. The graphic and audio design on the game are top notch creating a wonderful environment for the game. It was a nice change of pace from shooters, but I tend to like slower games like RPG's.

We'll probably never get those extra desks as Bondi has gone belly up.

I would have to agree with you man. I like titles that are very original. I do love my shooters, and sports games. But sometimes, you need that different game to break away from the norm.
