The PlayStation 3 version of The Darkness has been delayed until next month, July 20, 2K Games has confirmed to CVG.
The confirmation follows a mad date change-over on UK retailer sites, which has turned out to more than the usual calendar-poking rubbish shops get up to.
The Xbox 360 version is due out this Friday, and if you're on our Live friends list you'll know we've been caning it all weekend... and little else.
Oddly enough the PS3 version is up for purchase across the pond from today (and it's region-free, along with the 360 one for you importers).
2K gave no reason for the European delay when contacted, though we suspect it has something to do with the damned BBFC approval process (as if they haven't caused enough trouble this week).
You can look for our review of the Xbox 360 version very soon, and read our recent preview here.
