"Did she really have to die over $10!?"

Rockstar has revealed that the Switch version of L.A. Noire will cost $10 more on Switch than it does on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

While it's not comparing like for like - the Switch version has exclusive features such as motion control, HD Rumble and touch-screen crime-solving - it should be noted that the Xbox and PlayStation editions have enhanced visuals and could arguably be seen as the "definitive" versions of the game, yet they will cost $40 while the physical Switch release is $50.

We'd imagine this is because L.A. Noire will have to be shipped on a larger-then-normal capacity game card, and it seems that it's Nintendo's policy to pass that additional cost onto the publisher - who then pass it onto the consumer by charging more money.

As it happens, we'll be running an interesting feature on this so-called "Switch Tax" later today, so keep an eye out for it. In the meantime, let us know if the additional $10 bothers you at all, or if you're prepared to pay it for a portable version of the game.
