Sleuth Spots LA Noire Listing, Is $10 More Expensive On Switch

An observant Twitter user caught wind of listings for the upcoming port on Best Buy's website.


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.
