The Darkness delayed for Euro PS3 until July 20

PS3 Fanboy reports that this week's anticipated title The Darkness is hiding in the shadows for European PS3 owners another month. Turns out the game is being delayed until July 20 for the PS3, the Xbox 360 version will supposedly still release on June 29. This only affects Europe and does not change the June 25 release in the US. There is no word yet as to a reason for the delay.

@1.1 beast: Can't put nothing past you Hank McCoy. I was of course referring to tuesday, stupid.

You are NOT..The game is not out yet.

Well the word "Stupid" you should keep for yourself since " While i'm playing" is a present tense..Your education level is equivalent of your opinion ..which is S***

They're the ones being led blindly from one failed console which was suddenly dropped (Xbox1) to the next.

paul_war5937d ago

In Europe we can keep playing as we can play PS3 import games. I'm not to fussed though, everything is delayed here, for EVERY console.

So i will continue to remain in denial

Edwin19895937d ago

It says Only Europe

this stinks! why does "The Most Important Region"(Like Phil Harrison said) always comes last??

sfinXters5937d ago

Oh, crap.

SuperSaiyan45937d ago

In the annals of Mortal Kombat history, Stryker stands out not for his prominence but for his successive series of blunders and near-misses.

Naughty Dog Says Tomorrow's Last of Us Day Stream Won't Have Game or TV News

Will focus on "art, merch, and more".

Naughty Dog has announced it'll be celebrating The Last of Us Day - its annual hat tip to the community - again this year, but has warned fans not to expect any game or TV show news.

Is that multiplayer EVER going to drop? Like good lord... I love Naughty Dog so much, they're definitely in my top 5, if not top 3 developers. At this point, it's just getting ridiculous though. There's never even been a trailer for it, right? What the heck is going on with that? Just kind of baffled by the lack of info because I was looking forward to that quite a bit before Last of Us 2 even dropped.

Last gen, 2 years after the PS4 released we had Uncharted 4 but we didn't get a new IP from them.

3 years after the PS5 dropped and we've had nothing new from NaughtyDog and still no sign of a new IP just a remake we really didn't need.

The only thing we know is coming is an online focused multiplayer game and while Factions was a great addition to the original TLOU it's not like any of us wanted a full on multiplayer game spin off to take time away from other things. We could have at least had a reveal trailer of their new IP by now by their second team if the focus wasn't so split.

Feels like they care more about the TV show, it's all they ever talk about even with the writers / actors strike going on.

Goes to show how boring this gen will turn out everyone's talking forever to craft their graphical masterpiece that the generation will be over by the time the next hitters come out

Markusb332h ago

starting to get fairly fed up with all the lack of communication from 1st party. Even when the last of us started its hype was more interesting, showing the ants etc and no one knew what the game was about.
Being totally in the dark is much worse

"Just kind of baffled by the lack of info because I was looking forward to that quite a bit before Last of Us 2 even dropped."

Looks like the rumors surrounding that game been in development hell are accurate.

At least they understand when a product isn’t up to snuff.

Sam's like they had to scrap it and start again after Bungies assessment

crazyCoconuts7h ago

Based on their last update and some reading between the lines, it seemed like the work they had done was deemed as scrappable by the Bungie gods. I mean, factions was always kinda niche and this GaaS religion is probably looking for it to be a mainstream hit.
I'm guessing it's scrapped altogether. Maybe ND reworks it to be more accessible to the masses, but Last of Us doesn't seem to fit into the prototypical 3rd person shooter for the masses mold imo

Sold a wolf ticket with MP im still annoyed about that… Spent $60 on that game expecting MP to come in a reasonable time frane

I don't know how they managed to do 3 uncharted and 1 TLOU on PS3 compared to now...Every Studio needs way more time now. This is a big problem with AAA industry. I think Sony should also have AA studios to make great games on shorter timeline. it could cost 30-40 dollars

SonyStyled5h ago

Uh, they did. They just closed Japan and PixelOpus recently because AA titles didn’t sell. Guerilla Cambridge and BigBig also ring a bell from the last 5 years or so

Insomniac Games are the new flagship PlayStation studio in my eyes. Naughty dog peaked with Uncharted 2. They can’t get a new game out the door or even a multiplayer game for the matter.
