Fort Knox Gaming

What is it with game developers? Take, for instance, Rockstar. They announced L.A. Noire in 2006 (I think). I was very excited for that game. That was when I was 16. Another good example is AGENT. I don't own a PS3, but the game sounds interesting. Now it's been six months and all we know is that it's an espionage game from the Cold War era. NOTHING ELSE. I'm fine with the whole teaser idea, but after six months, new information should come out. Four years is unacceptable. For a big dev like Rockstar, it's not a problem. Any game that they release is going to be bursting at the seams with hype. But for some of the less-successful ones, such as Deep Silver, people forget about the game. When it finally does come around, people stop for a second and say, "They actually made that game?" So come on; for the true gamers, the ones that really want to hear about your next epic, put out some info. For those interested, however, Rockstar claims to finally be shedding light on L.A. Noire this February.

I'm reading this, and agree that it sucks how companies refuse to give out information, but it is all just about gaining maximum exposure with their announcements. And to be honest they did release a trailer in 06, which hasn't really been expanded upon. 
 
Now the news is that the March Game Informer cover will be LA Noire, business prevails with a sizable amount of money being handed over. I would expect the real coverage (GB gets some action) to only start in April though, with hands on previews at E3.

@24Carrot: They announced that L.A. Noire is no longer a PS3 exclusive, so you can get it for 360 when it comes out.

Yeah, I saw read that GI article around six times when I got it. I've been waiting for that article for four years. 
 By the way, I'm stoked that people are actually reading my stuff. Thanks guys.
