Revealed earlier this month, L.A. Noire is getting ported to PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch while also getting a VR version that will be rebuilt from the ground up. Price wasn't revealed when this news dropped, but a Twitter sleuth spotted a listing on Best Buy for the ports of the original game and the Nintendo Switch version carries a slightly heftier price tag.
The PS4 and Xbox One versions of L.A. Noire will set you back $39.99. If you want to experience the neo-noir detective game on Nintendo Switch, you'll have to pay $49.99.
L.A. Noire casts you as military vet Cole Phelps as he returns to Los Angeles and starts work as a patrol officer. As you progress further into his career, you'll be searching for clues, interrogating suspects and witnesses with a unique dialogue system, and unraveling the dark mysteries of the city. Check out our review of the original game to get a better idea of what you're getting into.

This price difference bullshit is really starting to piss me off. The cost at bulk for single layer bluray's vs. a 32GB sd card, while significant, is something like 8¢/disc vs 80¢-$1.50/sd card. At most there should be like a $5 difference to hit the next price mark (so from $29.99 to $34.99, etc.) and even then it's barely defensible.
They got me by the short hairs because honestly. I'd rather play every game on the switch.
