Deadly Premonition European Release Denied

Over this past weekend, rumours have begun spreading about the possibility of a European release for Deadly Premonition, published by Ignition Entertainment in North America. A budget title for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 that received a great deal of consumer support upon it’s release in North America earlier this year, despite being almost universally panned by critics, Deadly Premonition is a Survival Horror title that has readily been compared to the absurdly unique television series, Twin Peaks. (Deadly Premonition, Ignition Entertainment, PS3, Xbox 360)

Deadly Premonition is actually pretty good

Lol, it makes me wonder if Jim Sterling, single handedly made this game a hit.
XxRoosterxX  +   1743d ago
I would say Giant Bomb's dueling Endurance Runs also helped with its now cult-like following.

That was what i thought first when i saw the headline :)

Come on!
I thought this looked worth a bash! If it came with a budget price like £19.99 or something I'd probably pick it up.
N4GAddict  +   1743d ago
It is very underrated
ian72  +   1743d ago
I would probably pick up this game for £20.
Tomdc  +   1743d ago
id pick it up for 40 quid. I watched some of the endurance run and it looks like a right laugh

Reviews state this game sucks ass. Is it any good? I saw it here in the States but I was skeptical...
BYE  +   1743d ago
It sucks and is good at the same time. Hard to explain.

Watch some cutscenes on Youtube, if you like the humour, you might wanna check the game out.

I honestly doubt most reviewers played it for more than 10 minutes. Deadly Premonition is legendary. If you ever liked some of the old, crazy as hell Dreamcast games, I bet you'd like this.

But don't take my word for it either. It's a 20 dollar game, and you can probably find it for even cheaper, so it's no big loss if you buy it and hate it.

why is this also posted on the ps3 section of the board...it aint on ps3???
Hellsvacancy  +   1743d ago
It sucks man, im "so jealous"
Incognegro  +   1743d ago
It's only on xbox in the US. But it was made on PS3 as well in Japan.
JonDiskonected  +   1743d ago
oh ok
thanks for the answer
SilverSlug  +   1743d ago
Everyone is talking about it
Is this actually good?
Arnon  +   1743d ago
It's VERY good. The idiots above only concern themselves with the "highly respected" reviewers of the gaming world. Every site across the board has positive reviews for this game for player reviews. And no, they're not fanboys. There's nothing in this game to be a fanboy about.

The game is a cult classic, with some of the most absurd dialog and characters ever seen in a game.

Its a good thing or bad thing?

Bububububut in Destructoid review got 10/10
DlocDaBudSmoka  +   1743d ago
i thought this
is/was a 360 exclusive? (snickers)lol
XxRoosterxX  +   1743d ago
a Wild Juggalo appeared!!
bjornbear  +   1743d ago
europe doesn't want that crap
troll  +   1743d ago
I beg to differ!
Erotic Sheep  +   1743d ago
Seeing how good Just Dance is selling, I'd say Europe takes any form of crap >.>
bit-crusherrrr  +   1743d ago
do want
I'd buy it for £20, hurry up and release it dammit!
kagon01  +   1743d ago
Import the Asian PS3 version of this game, and your problems will be solved...

Yes, it is in English...
floetry101  +   1743d ago
Alot of people underestimated this game.
I imported the asian version of this for PS3 and there is honestly nothing quite like it. I'm not a huge fan of Jim Sterling but he's absolutely right. You can't honestly consider yourself a hardcore gamer unless you've played through this. The game is flawed in so many ways, but the experience is hard to define. It has to be played to be understood. The story is fantastic and good enough to break the monotony of the combat and driving mechanics. Some of it is downright bizarre, but in the best possible way. It's one of the most surprising games you'll buy this year, nothing can really prepare you for it. After playing it I had the urge to tell everyone I know about it.

Don't skip it because IGN told you to. A huge misconception by Eric Brudvig, a critic that doesn't honestly hold any weight.
