I have never bought something with a rebate before, so how does it work? Will they send me a check for the money once I send in all the forms, or is it just a coupon good only if I buy some product of theirs?
They send you a $50 visa gift card, or at least that was the option I took, since it was quicker turnaround.

Newegg has the Galaxy GTX460 768MB for $80 after MIR.
If you open a new account with them and use the code ' NEWCUSTOMER10' it knocks of another $10, making it $80.

The mail in rebate is $50. Got one of these about 2 months ago for my son's PC and it's a nice card for the price to be sure, probably 10-15% faster than a GTX285, depending on the game and PC setup obviously.

About 4 hours in on the PS3 version, froze the one time that I tried to access the DLC store like a dumbass, but other than that, it's been fine, 60GB launch PS3 w/ 320GB HD upgrade.

Any word on an L.A.Noire freezing patch? I'm starting to regret getting the one disk PS3 version.
People reporting freezing in the 360 version as well, so I dunno that would do you much good.

What the hell happened to Atari...again?

And then again.

 Nolan Bushnell obviously needs more control over there.

A selection of 10 games to choose 2 from would have been better. 5 is fine, but yeah, you're going to have people who have them all.  I have 2 of them, so not a huge deal to me, but a smaller pool makes it more likely that you'll have people who already own everything you're offering.

Honestly, other than just throwing money in peoples' PSN wallets, which is crazy and is not going to happen, Sony's never going to satisfy everyone. It's unfortunate, but there you go. If you've ever spent 2 seconds following any one politician, you already know what that feels like.

Wasn't the PS3 the lead platform too?  Makes me curios as to how the 360 version performs.

According to the review on the site, the 360 version's framerate issues are worse.

' Having spent a lot of time with both versions of L.A. Noire, the PlayStation 3 game is the clear-cut winner. Both versions of the game look fantastic, but there were a few instances of painful frame rate drops and objects drawing in too slowly on the Xbox that didn't exist on the PS3. Also, the shadows look a bit more jagged."

 There should be an option for him to take care of himself.
