Simpsons Arcade Freebie Delayed for European PS Plus

Yesterday we were elated to learn that Konami's classic The Simpsons Arcade Game would be given away as part of February's PlayStation Plus offering — but we might have known there'd be a snag

According to the official PlayStation Twitter account, the game's been pushed back a week due to a request from the publisher.

“Sadly, we are now unable to publish The Simpsons Arcade in PS Plus until Wednesday 8 February, and not today as listed,” revealed the update.

The PlayStation Blog's Ross McGrath continued: “Konami have contacted us this morning and informed us that The Simpsons Arcade will need to publish on February 8th to be in line with the game’s release on XBOX Live Arcade and in SCEA.

“Unfortunately, this is not something I have the power to change and it means you won’t be able to get your hands on The Simpsons until next week – February 8th. Believe me, I’m as disappointed as you are.”

Thankfully, the game will still be free for a full four weeks when it finally does arrive.
