Syphon Filter 3 Delayed
Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. has announced today the delay of Syphon Filter 3 for the PSX. Due to the tragic events taking place last week, the company feels its promotional and marketing schemes will have to be revamped in order to coincide with the situation. Originally scheduled for a September 25, 2001 release date, Syphon Filter is the final installment in this action/adventure trilogy.
"After careful review, we felt that the premise behind the Syphon Filter 3 packaging, and the direction of its corresponding advertising and promotional push, might be too sensitive to introduce during this time of tragedy," said Ami Blaire, director, product marketing, Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. "Out of genuine concern for the welfare of the victims and the families of those involved in the attack, as well as empathy for our fellow Americans, the company has decided to take time to modify the marketing and advertising campaign for Syphon Filter 3."
