A year ago, Rockstar was bringing us another impressive title with Red Dead Redemption. This year, they are about to do just the same with L.A. Noire, a game that some may have mistaken for another GTA-like, which it is clearly not. Indeed, Team Bondi wanted to deliver a new type of adventure game and though not everyone will appreciate the effort, it can't be denied that they have really done a pretty good job. Here is a chance to see what you can expect from the game with these two videos showing the beginning of the adventure. Today's gameplay footage was captured on 360 but we are hoping to show you some PS3 footage as soon as possible. Update: As promised, we've added two gameplay videos of the PS3 version. The first one actually shows more or less the same sequences than our two 360 videos, while the second one is dedicated to the first investigation Cole leads from beginning to end.
Just a small precision for our system warriors friends. The PS3 version is captured with a HDMI capture card, while the 360 was with a Component capture system. Component captures are always a bit blurry due to the analog->digital conversion, so there can't be any direct comparisons over that. Still, if you guys own both systems, go with the PS3 version.

I'm already not playing Battlefield because I'm not crazy with what DICE is doing with it. They've got a lot of work to do. (10 Hours ago)
EA is far from out of the woods, but I don't think this is the steep downhill incline you imagine for the industry. I'm not buying the doom and gloom. (10 Hours ago)
If they can develop revenue streams that don't negatively impact the user experience.. most will try. (10 Hours ago)
And while publishers may want to pursue service models, there are relatively good ways of handling that. Add to this the fact that most developers don't really want to ruin their games. (10 Hours ago)
EA is already dropping the ball all over the place. But people are reacting to it, more than ever. (10 Hours ago)
