Jeez! It's been so busy in the past week that I've completely forgotten about L.A. Noire! I know, I know… "How dare you! You're supposed to be on the ball! You fucked up! Gatorade is better!"
Shut up! I've been busy.
My attention took quite the turn today when I received the latest Xbox Live Newsbeat, a newsletter "just for us." There's not a lot you could call interesting in here. Quite frankly, I treat it a little bit like the junk mail grocery ads that show up in my mail box every week. So let's see… what's going on this week in Xbox Live land.
Wait a sec- what's this? L.A. Noire Rockstar Pass. 800 Microsoft Points ($10):
In celebration of launch on May 17, take your L.A. Noire experience to the next level and download the "L.A. Noire Rockstar Pass add-on.
Unless Rockstar and Team Bondi are totally messin' wit' us, I can't see this as anything other than an online-pass in the vein of the Cerberus Network. I don't think there's any multiplayer solvin' to do in 1947 L.A. so the Rockstar Pass has got to do something with the retailer-specific DLC cases. What else could the Rockstar Pass possibly be?
