Crago: LA Noire is a year away, 360 and PS3, is massive

Saturday, 20th September 2008 07:21 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Tom Crago, the CEO of Tantalus and the president of the Game Developers’ Association of Australia, spilled some beans on Team Bondi-developed LA Noire at GC Asia yesterday, saying the mysterious Rockstar title is likely to have one of the biggest development budgets of any game. Ever.

Crago said the game’s “got – I’d suggest – another year or so to go”.

He also said that it “could be the biggest budget videogame in development anywhere in the world. It would certainly… in terms of console titles, be in the top ten… LA Noire is a massive, massive project.”

Blimey. Rockstar will be pleased. Not content with that, Crago went on to say the game’s coming out on PS3 and 360. Platforms had been previously unconfirmed.

    This could be interesting, considering it being Rockstar and all. I’ll be watching. And waiting.

    Was this the one that people were thinking was PS3 exclusive?

    Was this the game people didn’t ahve a clue was ever PS3 exclusive (apart from me :( ) ?

    Seems a shame. Exclusive regardless of platform always makes a better game, just becuase the game is focused on that platform alone.

    Well, I think people made that assumption back when PS3 wasn’t doing a bit shit, so they assumed most games would be PS3 exclusive. Third party exclusives on 360/PS3 are a thing of the past now.

    They assumed it was PS3 exclusive based on the rather flimsy ‘the guy who worked on The Getaway is doing it and he worked at Sony’ theory. I always figured it’d be multiplatform in the end, but it’s nice to have the confirmation.

    Disappointed it’s so far away, though. Hopefully they’re using the time to make it super fucking awesome.

    Peopel didn’t base it that loosely Blerk.

    It was also confirmed PS3 exclusive only last fall in Take Two’s roster.

    It’s actually shocking that this still isn’t confirmed officially.

    This was definitely originally announced as a PS3 game.
