Alone In The Dark PS3 Delayed Again

If we hadn't already suffered through the horror that was the PS2 version of Alone in the Dark, we'd be upset about this news. And by the way, in the preceding sentence, we don't mean "horror" in the good sense; in the sense that this survival/horror title was satisfactorily terrifying. No, we mean it was horrifyingly horrible.

Okay, perhaps that's an exaggeration, but we were still very disappointed. And now, it appears Eden Studios has been forced to delay the PS3 version another month. Up until now, it had been scheduled for an October release, but according to European gaming site XGN, it has been pushed into November. Why? They don't give a reason, but does it really matter? We know the Xbox 360 version was actually somewhat playable, but by November, PS3 owners are going to have a few top-notch options, and we just refuse to believe that Alone in the Dark will be one of them. The level of competition it'll face, along with the terrible reviews for the PS2 version and merely average reviews for the 360 version, could mean bad news for Atari.

Then again, perhaps Eden will use the extra time to make the appropriate changes, which would in turn give PS3 owners the only solid version of this once-promising title. We'd love to think this could happen, and we're always optimistic, but... Well, here's hoping.

Unless they decide to take the criticism of reviews of the other versions then make this version better, I don't think that the PS3 version will be worth playing.

Me thinks Eden Studios needs to catch up with the tech of the PS3 soon because I'm sure it's why they delayed the game. I'll give them time with AitD but after that it better be cake!

It would be cool if they could re-work this into a decent game. Maybe that would get microsoft to think about shelling out tons of money for early releases.
But I dont think any of that will happen.

Typical devs being hard headed and not listening to the community, or at least testing out the concept with a Beta...

From what i've heard about this game,they should cancel it,if they're trying to make it better then they might just have to do a sequel. I hope the cash ms gave eden studios will keep them warm during winter.

This is the 2nd time i applaud ms for stuffing cash down dev's throats for timed exclusives (the first being bioshock).

bioshock was not a timed exclusive, it was an outright exclusive at the time it was made. they only recently decided to make it for the ps3 because it became so popular

To further confirm: Bioshock was always going to come to the PS3. Microsoft simply offered up a huge chunk of change to keep it from coming for a year after the 360 and PC versions released.
