If you’re hot enough for LA Noire to slap down a fiver in advance of any review scores, know that your pre-purchase cash will net you some extra bonus content. Publisher Rockstar Games has revealed a bunch or pre-order deals it has struck with various retailers for its latest game. And, as usual, even if you do reserve the game, you’ll still be feeling like you’re still missing out on content. I guess the good news here is that only two retailers have meaningful, core campaign-related goodies.
Right, so let’s get to it. I’ll list the retailer and then the bonus and then you can react in the comment section if you so desire:
== TEASER ==AMAZON - The Broderick Suit
A nifty blue suit that boosts your fist-fighting abilities.
BEST BUY - The Sharpshooter Suit
A tan suit with a terrible tie that enhances your aim with rifles and pistols.
GAMESTOP - The Naked City Vice Case And The Badge Pursuit
The Naked City is a “bonus case” that can be taken from the Vice Desk. According to the PR, this case deals with the “supposed suicide of a stunning fashion model.” The Badge Pursuit, on the other hand, adds 20 collectible badges to the game’s world. When all are found, you’ll get the Button Man suit, which adds extra ammo for all weapons. Every badge you find also five additional XP points.
TARGET - LA Noire T-Shirt
Here’s a fun and self-explanatory one: Target is offering a LA Noire shirt via the Rockstar Warehouse. You can pick your size at the store.
WAL-MART - A Slip of The Tongue Case
A Slip Of The Tongue is a “bonus case” that can be taken from the Traffic Desk. It’ll have you investigating a car theft that leads to an investigation into “the largest auto fraud racket the city has ever seen,” according to the game’s Web site.
That’s a lot content, but it looks like GameStop has secured, once again, the best deal in comparison to the rest of the reserve offerings. Then again, I’m not sure how handy these suits will be. I guess we’ll see on May 17 when the game hits the PS3 and Xbox 360?
