    Far as I understand it, it's only available on PS3 in Japan and Asia, and an English edition is coming to Asia, but it isn't coming out domestically for the PS3. And the Asia English edition is something like $65 or $70 versus the $20 for the US Xbox one. I broke down and grabbed it for Xbox today

    Actually it was just recently Play-Asia took down the English Asian version listing, so it's all still up in the air. Someone from Ignition posted a comment on their Deadly Premonition board regarding the release of the PS3 version.

    We intended to release the PS3 version alongside the 360 version but that was changed due to reasons I can't talk about. Though with the 360 version going over so well maaaayyybe that will be rectified. No promises though.
    The comment leaves a window open and judging from his comment, I think that it may be released more sooner than later.

    It wasn't really a rumor, it was falsely reported by one site and then after that debunked, Play-Asia made a listing for a English version and then suddenly took it down say it was "canceled". I did read however that the game is still very much playable and that most of the dialogue is spoken.

    I have to admit, I just started the second half of chapter two and I'm REALLY digging the storyline. I'm surprised at how well-written this is turning out to be. It's a shame the gameplay has to be so horrible.

    I will be picking up a copy later tonight. Not that Alan Wake looks bad, quite the contrary, but Deadly Premonition looks like the game I envisioned and wanted Alan Wake to be.

    I bought it day 1 off of Amazon, played a bit into it and on Eposide 2 and it's not great but not bad either....just hate having to wait till your mission opens up, is it me or is no local shops in the game ever open?....been waiting to checkout the diner and it seems to never open up or I miss it....tried peaking it the windows.

    I want this to play when me and my buddy are drinkin'. Booze can only seem to make this game better. Or spur on Mystery Science Theater commentary.

    Okay so I picked up this game over the weekend, it's good! despise what IGN said and Destructoid's hilarious review, I really like the game. It feels like Dead Rising with the time, except the time... IS REAL TIME. it doesn't go by too slow or too fast.

    Complaints? A few. Maybe one being that they loop the music over and over and over again, it gets annoying. ALSO, sometimes it can get to slow, and for a small town why the fuck is it so big? Like... everyone lives so far away!

    I have not gotten to far into it, but I am really enjoying it, got that, Zach?

    I'm halfway through, so far so good. If you grew up playing PSX era survival horror games this is a must have. The Gamestop I bought mine from had three copies and when I asked for it the clerk had never heard of it before.

    My only real complaint is with the annoying wall crawling enemies, but the conversation about the bizarre sandwich in the diner makes me forget all about them.

    I've heard them say the same thing about Wartech and EDF 2017... They know not what they speak of.

    Did you ask them if they actually played it and weren't just going by the IGN review?

    I would happily pay $59.99 just for the "Cat Fight" chapter alone. Good lord, what the hell was that?

    Man, this game is more than a little inspired by TWIN PEAKS -- the music, characters, settings and mood (right down to the lead guy talking to "Zach" the same way Dale Cooper did to "Diane" on the old series) are more than a bit the same, lol.

    It's like if you had a Japanese developer try to make a TWIN PEAKS game, couldn't get the license, and then applied RESIDENT EVIL 4 shooting and aiming to the game -- you'd end up with this.

    Utterly bizarre, VERY playable though and a lot of fun!!

    I just finished this last night and I absolutely freakin' LOVED IT. The first two hours or so are pretty sloppy, but around the middle of chapter two it starts picking up. Chapter four was full of one "OMFG!" moment after the other. I still don't care for the "otherworld" parts that much, but the "main" part of the game is just so over the top with tons of ridiculous moments which made it quite enjoyable. This isn't merely a game, this is ART.

    Now I have to replay it and do the sidequests and card collecting. I know I missed out on a ton of stuff by skipping those.

    Sounds like it's fair to say that this gen finally got it's Killer 7.

    Got the game, now I have to get a 360... *Is it sad that this game is driving me toward buying one - after all this time?* Not at all Zach!
