L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files on PS4

Step into the painstakingly recreated world of 1940’s Los Angeles through the eyes of Detective Cole Phelps as you solve cases from across all five desks of the original L.A. Noire, including: Upon Reflection, Armed and Dangerous, Buyer Beware, The Consul’s Car, The Silk Stocking Murder, Reefer Madness, and A Different Kind of War – each picked for their suitability to the virtual reality experience.

In addition to cases to solve, L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files for PlayStation VR allows Detective Cole Phelps to let off some steam with three fun new minigames designed to take full advantage of the game’s unique VR mechanics:

  • Boxing: Step into the ring as Cole Phelps and take on 12 different opponents
  • Speedcar Racing: Race classic 1940’s “Speedcar” vehicles against AI opponents on three new dirt tracks
  • Shooting Galleries: Keep your eye in with target practice in four different shooting galleries, each with their own challenges, targets and weapons

L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files for PlayStation VR also delivers an enhanced technical experience specifically built for the PlayStation system including greater draw distance and upgraded visual fidelity; new sitting and standing modes (including a new “Crouch” button for easier object inspection); enhanced navigation, locomotion and weapon tuning.

The latest enhanced version of L.A. Noire is also available for PlayStation 4, featuring the complete original game and all downloadable content.

Owners of L.A. Noire for PlayStation 4 will receive 25% off the purchase of L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files by clicking on the “Get VR Cases” selection in the console game’s main menu.

Very happy this is coming to PlayStation, very happy about the discount for owners of LA Noire as well!

That’s all well and good, except all of your “available now” announcements aren’t available now. Once again the EU players are being treated like second rank, and you even had the audacity to simply copy and paste a post from the US blog, knowing full well that it contains false information


Yeah I still don’t see this Medievil demo “available today” when there is only an hour and a half left in the day.

you can’t really be surprised by this anymore, it happens every time


Medievil demo is up now, still no sign of LA Noire though

Been checking the store since the state of play finished, and still this game that is supposed to be out now, is nowhere to be seen.

It’s up now

Played this back on the PC (non VR) many years ago. But think it’ll work on VR v well. Looks like another Batman VR, which wasn’t bad. Wont be getting it now for Full price, but would consider it around New Years if it is on sale by then.

We close the comments for posts after 30 days.
