Team Bondi: Cut LA Noire content wouldn’t fit one Blu-ray

By Johnny Cullen, Friday, 22 July 2011 11:38 GMT

Team Bondi boss Brendan McNamara has said that cut content from LA Noire wouldn’t have been able to fit on a single Blu-ray.

He touched upon the content once before – two desks known as bunko and burglary – and even said now that one of the desks have been written, designed and had some of the art for them done.

Alas, not to be.

“We had eleven full cases for [Burglary], which we wrote and did the design for to a certain extent – we even did the art for them too,” McNamara told PSM3 (via CVG).

“I think there might have been a better arc if we did do that – you get more of a chance to introduce different things – but in terms of the overall experience I think we did pretty well.”

The game’s final DLC case, Reefer Madness, launched a couple of weeks back on PSN and XBLMP. A full PC version of the game will release this autumn.
