No GT5 In 2009, Arkham Asylum PS3 DLC To Be Free
Sony's E3 press conference is tomorrow but to tide you over until then, we've got a few new updates for you.
As reported by Variety's The Cut Scene, Gran Turismo 5 really won't be released this year, contrary to the high hopes of racing aficionados. There's also the mention that God of War III has "slipped" to 2010, but that's definitely not accurate. The last we heard, the game was set for a March 2010 release, with only the scant possibility that it may launch in January. Any talk about it coming out in 2009 is strictly based on speculation and wishful thinking. The blog also states that Microsoft will have a big musical-oriented surprise at their conference today, and Joystiq has confirmed that the upcoming exclusive PS3 DLC for Batman: Arkham Asylum - where you can play as The Joker - will be free. Just as a reminder, the game was initially scheduled to release later this month but has now been delayed until August 25. We have several great titles to keep us occupied until then, though. For instance, you can have a ton of fun with the highly addictive inFamous; it's one of 2009's must-plays.
We're counting the hours to Sony's conference tomorrow - 11 a.m. PST, 2 p.m. EST - and you can be sure that we'll bring you the news as it happens.
