A great deal IMO

Hopefully the PSN store is up by June 14.

Boycott this, no matter how sweet the extra's might be. Online passes need to go.

this is not an online pass! please don't make weird statements without knowing what you're talking about!
Posted by SensuousLettuce

I'm confused as to what this is supposed to be. Is it like a map pack for COD or what? OR WHAT!?

Posted by ixnay

It's basically just a bundle package.  You buy it before June 14, and you get all of the LA Noire DLC for 50% off - 4 cases, 2 suits, and the badge challenge.  

Before June 14, this is a cheaper price than buying just the 4 cases individually ($10 for the Pass versus $12 for buying all 4 cases individually)

Posted by PieGuy

So will they allow for the PSN store being down with this June 14th  special offer?
I'm gonna be extremely pissed if I miss this because of no allowances and the store being down. E3 is going to be an unhappy time for Sony.

Code that unlocks DLC? So you'll still be able to play online without this? I don't even...

Still haven't  gotten my fill of L.A. Noire yet. 
Tooootally getting that... that is if  PSN store ever returns...

Edited by Zimbo
@dcgc: @JackGordon86: LA Noire doesn't have an online mode. It's pretty much a "subscription" for Rockstar that gets you all their DLC. Not that confusing.
 
I might get it. I wouldn't mind a few more cases.
Posted by AtomicEdge

So to confirm, if I buy this, I get all the future DLC as well? That doesn't sound right...

Posted by Robitt

Ok Rockstar, you got me.

Posted by JackGordon86

@DeF & Zimbo: It's a pass, not a 'subscription' or anything alike, that grants one access to stuff that was cut from the main game and/or held back  for ransom (kB unock keys for content that is already on the disc). By all means, do as you please; get it or don't. But I won't be, as this signals devs & publishers that such practices are 'ok' with us gamers.

@AtomicEdge

That's exactly right.

After you buy the pass, all of the DLC shows up in the in-game marketplace as "Owned" and it lets you download it for free from there.  The two cases that aren't out show up as "Owned - Coming Soon"

Posted by RecSpec

This is pretty cool. Can't wait to download this when PS3 comes up. 

Posted by totriz

people should read before making moronic statements just because the name of this pack. 
 if it was called 'L.A noire dlc bundle pack' no one would be screaming about online multiplayer passes (that suck btw, but have nothing to do with LA noire,)

Posted by Yummylee

Good god, that looked like a mini nuclear explosion in the Arson case @_@

Posted by Burrobean

I totally bought this.  10 bucks for 4 cases and all the other bits and pieces seems like a very fair deal.  Now i can start any gunfight by going to my trunk and pulling out a big ol' Tommy gun.  Sweet.

But it is NOT content which is on the disc. You need to download the cases separately after you buy the pass (which is a kB unlock, as you say, but the cases are not). Plus, I don't see how there is anything wrong in calling it a subscription service. You pay a (lower) price now to recieve present and future dlc, which is in line with subscription based models.

This is the only DLC that is coming out for LA Noire. Rockstar has confirmed there is no more DLC planned besides what is in the pack.
Posted by Hyperfludd
@pot: That's a bummer. This is a game where I totally would buy every extra case.
Posted by JackGordon86

@Niklas: You are right about the cases and I know that as well. That's why I said "...and/or held back..." because the costumes are on the disc.

Posted by NakAttack

Got this today

That's fair. I guess it's a question of how you look at it. :)

I don't think this is what you think it is...
Posted by JackGordon86

@Niklas: Indeed, it is ;) But hey, again, do as you please.
 
@zombienutz: I do know what it is. Though I admit: I may have put it the wrong way so I'll rephrase: 'Passes, in general, need to go.'

You should do research before "opening your mouth".  The cases are not on the disk.  'Slip of the Tongue' is about 250 MB to download and 'Naked City' is almost 500 MB.
Posted by JackGordon86

@DontLikeClowns: And you should read my previous post before opening yours.

Posted by redrohX

I got Naked City and Badge Challenge with my pre-order. But to my surprise Naked City already fits into the story in the main game. That's so cool. I don't mind the discount pass, but I do mind that I've already finished the game by the time the new DLC arrives and I have to do them individually through the Cases option or start up a new main game.

Fireball explosion cause by gasoline. I've seen special effect studios make bombs for explosions like those
Posted by Garfield360UK

Cool beans, saw the news article yesterday on the pass being available and this being on offer for a couple of weeks will allow me to get the points to get this content at the discount rate. Personally I like this sort of DLC, especially when offered at a discounted rate. 
Posted by SkinnyBlue

I foolishly bough the "Slip of the Tongue" case separately, because I had already gotten the "Naked City" case and the Badge Pursuit challenge when I pre-ordered and I figured I might as well just buy this and the other two cases when they come out separately. I didn't take into account that I would be saving money had I just bought the pass, so stupid.

Posted by haggis

I don't care about the suits, and already have The Naked City and the Badge Pursuit Challenge, so that only leaves two cases. I'm not sure it's worth it to me, but for those without any DLC, it's definitely a good deal.

Posted by paulunga
@Branthog: Just to answer your point about achievements: All games with DLC add-ons automatically patch in the achievements for the add-ons as they are released so they show up in the achievements list even if you don't own any DLC for a game. 
 
Unless you're talking about something like "finish Reefer Madness" being part of the first 1000 points.
Posted by MeatSim

Already got this seems like a good deal to me.

Posted by billyhoush

As I'm coming close to beating the game I have no clue how these random cases will fit in once you have finished the main story. Seems fairly arbitrary and removes you from the world. 
 
I hope they intend on releasing a true expansion pack with new cases and characters like they did with other Rockstar franchises built around the GTA engine. 

Posted by afrokola

Anybody else reminded of season 6 of 24 with that Arson Case? 
 

Edited by Swarfigo
@AtomicEdge: It only includes announced DLC which is like four cases and some suits. Any other stuff that may be released in the future is not part of it. 
Posted by Xpgamer7

I need this.

Posted by CrazyCannuck

Your too late Giant Bomb the Wallet is dead.  Judging by the temperature the pass was purchased early this morning. 

Posted by bigsmoke77
@Branthog: They filled a bluray which is three dvds, they couldn't just give the xbox unlimited number of DVDs with all of the cases that were left on the cutting room floor and keep the PS3 the same.

Rockstar saying no more DLC is planned doesn't mean anything? News to me, you'd think it would actually mean "no more DLC Is planned".

Seems cool.
