After Play.com and Amazon.co.uk changed their listings for the PS3 version of The Darkness to July 22nd and July 20th respectively, 2K Games has confirmed to Eurogamer that the PS3 version of The Darkness has been put back until July 20th in Europe.
No reason is given for the delay of the PS3 version in Europe but it’s getting very annoying as it’s not the first time this has happened to an EU PS3 game. Spider-Man 3, Calling All Cars, Rainbow Six: Vegas and GRAW 2 are just a few PS3 games that have been put back for various reasons. The latter 2 aren’t available in NA yet either.
At least RSV is finally being released this Friday in the UK despite it initially being a PS3 launch title.
Importing is not an option in most cases as a lot of games don’t have global servers meaning I won’t be able to play with/against my friends, not to mention I trade in any unwanted games to help fund new purchases and very few retailers take imported games.
I really am puzzled why the PS3 version is delayed yet the 360 version goes ahead as normal. Rumours seem to point towards BBFC approval problems but if that’s the case, why is the 360 version cleared?
