Deadly Premonition: Director's Cut - Does the PS3 Version Bring Anything New to the Cult Game?

TechStuff: The first experience many gamers had with Deadly Premonition was a fairly strained one, until the game was given some time to impress. With a clunky control system and graphics that were closer to Playstation 2 levels rather than Xbox 360 it should have really been a game that was quickly forgotten as a failure, but this was not to happen with Deadly Premonition.

With a storyline and style that made many reminiscent of Twin Peaks the game became somewhat of a cult hit with its poor interface and bad design just adding to that weird and wonderful feel that turned out to be unique to some, and an underground hit was born. If you preserved with it, you were pulled into a mess of a game, but one that really did catch imagination. For others though the failings were too noticeable and it was quickly forgotten about. Now it’s time for Playstation 3 to get Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut, a game that looks to not only add to the story but to also try improve the controls as well as other issues like with the camera. Will it be able to create the same magic again or will an updated Deadly Premonition be more of a wounding for the games popularity when some clearly enjoyed the very things that weakened it in the first place? (Deadly Premonition, Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut, PS3)

@DangerouslyJack

why fail?

"The PlayStation 3 version was released only in Japan on the same date as the Xbox 360 version"

Google it Idiot

Because this is the director's cut.

He isn't interested in an old version when the NEW version comes out tomorrow.

Name calling?

Just proves your immaturity.

I honestly feel sorry for you. A man owns his mistakes.

However I'm left just owning you.

Yeah, i missed the 360 version but i think i will grab this one because after all there is a reason they re-worked it, most low budget games do not get that second chance and coming over to ps3 knowing my sick, cooky and weird taste i am pretty sure i will love this mishap of a game. :) my hat off to the chiefs of this relaunch.

I don't know 39.99 is still a little too much to pay for a game of this...........
