L.A. Noire Leads on PS3

There's less than a week until Rockstar Games and Team Bondi let loose their latest opus, L.A. Noire. Before you can go solving crimes as Cole Phelps in 1940s LA, you've got to decide which platform to buy the game on. We'll give you the inside track: you might want to go with the PS3 version of L.A. Noire. Team Bondi Head Brandon McNamara confirmed with 1UP this week that L.A. Noire was developed on PS3 first and then ported to Xbox 360.
That makes a lot of sense when you consider the fact that L.A. Noire was originally a PlayStation 3 exclusive to be published by Sony Computer Entertainment America:
McNamara used to lead Sony's Soho studio which developed successful PlayStation exclusives like The Getaway. When asked about the reasoning behind an Xbox 360 version of L.A. Noire, McNamara replied:
Well, with a seven year development cycle, I'd say that you'd probably need to invest in an Xbox 360 version of the game to ensure you break even. Rockstar probably saw that risk-reward equation there too. Are you picking up L.A. Noire next week? If you haven't decided yet, check out the L.A. Noire launch trailer below:
