PS3 Blacksite delayed by one week in Europe

Midway has announced that the European release of Blacksite: Area 51 for PlayStation 3 has been pushed back one week to March 7, 2008.

The game was originally scheduled for release this Friday on February 29, though for reasons unknown, the publisher saw fit to delay the game by an additional seven days, reports Eurogamer.

Released late last year in North America, Blacksite: Area 51 is a First Person Shooter (FPS), which sees players infiltrating the infamous US Military compound and battling against an assortment of alien creatures.

The game is particularly noted for its strong political commentary, and even includes stages named after various speeches or comments made famous by the Bush Administration during the Iraq War.
