131w ago - ANZ Content Services Manager Nino Kalogeropoulos has unveiled the first L.A. Noire PlayStation 3 video game trailer today for fans!

You will be tasked with a challenge, then given hundreds of objects in the game -- all with different physical properties -- that you can use to solve it.
We have themed 140 Challenges divided into four main types.
Object challenges encourage you to look for the most efficient solution to a simple problem using a small set of items. These can actually be quite tough to solve!
Scoretacular challenges seen in the video above are the complete opposite of the Object challenges, as you're tasked with solving a problem in the most outlandish way possible using multiple objects and setting up crazy chains of events.
