Max Payne 3 will be sitting on shop shelves from October 30, if a retailer listing is accurate. And when are they not?
The beans were spilt by Play.com, where you can already place a pre-order on the game for £39.99.
After questioning the validity of the release date, Play told LivePlayStation: "Thank you for your recent enquiry regarding the release date of Max Payne 3. Please be advised that the release date for this item, currently scheduled for 30/10/09, has been given to us by the developers of the game."
Update: We spoke to publisher Rockstar, who just reaffirmed that the official date remained to be "winter". Update ends
