Rockstar have sent over details of the LA Noire Complete Edition, which will be out on November 8. The Complete Edition of the detect-'em-up will cost $49.99/ €49.99/£39.99 and include all of the follow up DLC cases added after launch on the consoles, "including the “Nicholson Electroplating” Arson case, “Reefer Madness” Vice case, “The Consul’s Car” Traffic case, “The Naked City” Vice case and “A Slip of the Tongue” Traffic case."

We can expect the PC version of LA Noire to make good use of the PC's extra clout with "increased resolution and graphical detail" and support for Nvidia 3D vision. Get a sense of how well it'll run on your rig with the system specifications below. Apparently LA noire will need a "DVD Drive" to run. Don't tell LA Noire hero Cole Phelps, he'll shoot you on sight. He'll never have seen such technology, being from the '40s and all. Also, he's a bit of a dick.

LA Noire developers Team Bondi go into administration

Team Bondi, makers of open world detective game LA Noire, have gone into administration, report Edge. Team Bondi have had a difficult time since LA Noire was released on consoles in May, with the PC version scheduled for later this year, staff reported harsh working conditions and Rockstar refused to publish future titles from the team. Team Bondi now faces a challenge to either find a buyer for the studio or sell assets in order to stave off insolvency.

Exactly what impact this will have on the PC version of LA Noire, currently under development at Rockstar Leeds, is uncertain, but Joystiq claim that Rockstar are retaining the rights to the series.
