Following Internet rumours yesterday suggesting that the PlayStation 3 release of Stranglehold has been delayed, publisher Midway has reiterated that the title is still very much on track for it’s intended release date this September.
Reports of a delay cropped up yesterday after Midway’s European division neglected to attach a release date during a news report on the title. Speculation immediately followed, suggesting the PS3 version had now been pushed back to an unspecified date later this year.
However, having contacted Midway, 1up has confirmed that the game is still scheduled to launch along side its Xbox 360 and PC counterparts on September 17th. In addition, the PS3 version also ships with a free copy of the upcoming Blu-ray release of Hard Boiled.
Stay tuned for full coverage of Stranglehold here at PSU in the near future.

From what I've read in the past, only the US will get the movie as a bonus. It would be really swell if the movie came with the game worldwide! :)

But anyways that's good news to hear seeing how 3rd party games always seem to get delayed for the PS3. The PS3 version also is a better value now that includes a free blu-ray movie.

Yeah the i wonder why there adding a free movie mybe its there way of showing they support blu-ray/ps3 more then dvd/360! they also stick with 360 for money.

Actually they did the movie because the BD's excess space was begging them to fill it up hence the movie.

psn id: gingo..... this is finally some good news after so many ps3 game delays

I don't think that it's free. Isn't it going to be packages as a "special edition", so we will be paying for the movie in a way?

@ ryoma- you got up at seven to say first, where is you insight, where do you stand and how special do you feel by saying first, I REALLY want to know what enjoyment you recieve by that , People who say first really puzzle me,( I really had to ask I'm sitting here at work dumbfounded by that) My real point, Delays have seriuosly hurt the Ps3 install base, Sony would have twice the Ps3 sold if the games were there,

The 360 version actually launches he last week of August, but i will be getting the PS3 version just for the BD movie, 2 weeks never hurt anyone....

@ ryoma - you remind of that little retarded boy some news channel interviewed when they asked him about how he felt about some situation all he said was and i quote " i like turtles", it was completely off subject too. n e wayz This is cool i want this game.

Ok well thats good to hear, i hope people stop blaming the ps3 for some delay problems like GTA 4, people gotta relize that once people know how to use the ps3's real power, then this silly nex gen war is over

Ok I'm confused are there 2 versions of this game for PS3 or just 1 if so what's the difference!?
- 2:13pm EDT - August 10th, 2007
loved the demo on XBL will be getting it on PS3
- 4:45pm EDT - August 10th, 2007
Ryoma yes we know your first. And finally a developer who isn't PS3 plagued lol!

I believe all the first poster's only do it too get a reaction out of people,so if we all follow the advice our mothers gave us and just ignore them they will go away.That is mad cool that the movie is with it cuz iv'e never even heard of it let alone seen it,so now I'll watch the movie first and then play the game FRIGGIN SWEET

thats good september is going to be an expensive month
- 6:04am EDT - August 11th, 2007
Is good to know that at least some games will come at the time their promised
- 3:05pm EDT - August 11th, 2007
Isn't the movie only bundles with the $70 collectors edition? Just saying it's probably not fair to say we're getting a "free" movie but we're getting a movie along with our game at a very good value.
