The Rockstar-backed interactive detective story, L.A Noire, which is due for release in 2009, may be the biggest budget videogame ever created, according to Tom Crago, the CEO of Tantalus and the president of the Game Developers' Association of Australia.

IGN quotes Crago as saying that L.A Noire "could be the biggest budget videogame in development anywhere in the world. It would certainly… in terms of console titles, be in the top ten… LA Noire is a massive, massive project."

Behind the title is Australian developer Team Bondi, an Australian based studio founded by Brendan McNamara, of The Getaway fame. The crime thriller was originally announced exclusivively for PS3, but in his speech at GC Asia recently he mentioned that the title will be coming to Xbox 360 and PS3.

Although little has been revealed about the title in terms of gameplay, we do know that it's set in "a perfectly re-created Los Angeles" of the late 1940s and players will be tasked with solving a series of murders.

Rockstar has yet to confirm the Xbox 360 version.

Watch the official trailer at the L.A Noire website.
