Did you pre-order Deadly Premonition from the European PSN Store when it was first put up for its pre-launch digital outing? Well, chances are you’ve been charged, and the game’s still not available for download from Sony’s (recently patched) online Store.
From what we can gather (and we’re still looking into this) PSN users were charged for the game at the end of April. That wouldn’t be so bad if the game was released in yesterday’s PSN Store Update, but it wasn’t.
“I am still awaiting a response from Sony about the continued delay to the Deadly Premonition digital release. My account has been debited and yet no communication about the delay, or any form of apology, has taken place,” says one PSN user.
Apparently users have emailed SCEE’s customer service, but are yet to receive a response.
“Sorry to say but I’m not able to provide full details of the delay,” comments Sony’s Jawad Ashraf on the PlayStation Blog. “As soon as it’s ready we aim to push it out.”
Hopefully the game appears today or tomorrow – early indications show that the pre-order download date does appear to be aiming at the 3rd or the 4th of May. It was released onto store shelves on the 26th of April. It’s available from online retailers for around £25.
