The PlayStation 3 version of Alone in the Dark 5 will no longer be released alongside its PC and Xbox 360 counterparts early next year, publisher Atari has today confirmed.
The game was originally slated to appear simultaneously on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC some time before the end of the company’s fiscal year concluding March 2008. However, while no specific details were given, the firm has confirmed to Eurogamer that the PS3 version will now arrive at a later date.
As with previous instalments, Alone in the Dark 5 casts players in the shoes of paranormal investigator, Edward Carnby. Set in the year 2006, Carnby is tasked with pursuing a series of strange occurrences in New York City’s Central Park while battling hordes of demonic creatures set in fully interactive environments. Featuring all-new physics and visual effects, Alone in the Dark 5 is set to be the most realistic entry in the series to date.
Update (Sept 6th): Eurogamer has learned today that the game will in fact not be delayed, despite being informed that the PC and Xbox 360 versions were due to be released first.
A firm release date has yet to be announced, however, so stay tuned for more information.

Guess the PS3 is still harder to develop for. Just make sure the PS3 version runs the best and I'll be happy.

This is no big deal. These delays so far have come down to weeks. With the recent optimization of the UT3 engine, etc, this should be expected. And with short delays to incorporate better technology and code, I don't think it matters one bit if a game is delayed for a few weeks. Now 3-6 MONTHS would be not so good! :)

BUT!! Don't forget people, MS might have something to do w/ this, remember, the best thing MS is good at is blowing there money to keep as many games as possible, and as long as possible, from Sony. If you look real close to MS, they got stretch marks around there mouths. LOL!!! I am looking forward to this game thou, when ever it comes out.

peeS3rulz: "PS3 should be re-named the 'plays old 360 games at a lower frame rate 3'" Why would you say that, when 9 of the 10 best games for it have been exclusive? (and Oblivion had a BETTER frame rate)
