Deadly Premonition: Director's Cut Spooks PS3 in 2013

Posted by Sammy Barker

Better late than never

We’re not sure whether this is good news or bad news, but Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut is officially coming to the PlayStation 3 next year. The polarizing survival horror title – which launched on the Xbox 360 in 2010 – will ship with a host of additional features, including HD graphics (?), an updated control system, a brand new scenario directed by creator Hidetaka “Swery” Suehiro, and DLC support.

For those that don’t know, Deadly Premonition centres on the story of “FBI special agent Francis York Morgan as he investigates the murder of a young woman in the town of Greenvale”. The game earned cult status on the Xbox 360, partly due to Giant Bomb’s extensive Endurance Run video series.

Is this a game that you’ve been waiting to play on the PS3? Let us know in the comments section below.

Ah, but the question is, will these updates enhance the game? I've never played it, but some people seem to feel that the dated graphics and control system are part of the overall "B" movie experience. So will these updates help or hinder the experience, I wonder. I guess, as long as it isn't akin to cleaning up the fog for the Silent Hill 2 remake(which was just an awful choice), it will hopefully just make the game a little more palatable. I'm very intrigued by the schizoid premise of this game, I must admit...

Never heard of it. From the comments here, it sounds like you described it well as polarizing.

@Ginkgo: The PS Blog announcement of this release pointed out that this game holds the Guinness World Record for “Most Critically Polarizing Survival-Horror Game." So yeah, polarizing couldn't be a more fitting term.

I'm very interested to see how much they improve the gameplay...I thought this game had potential on 360, but gave up when I came across the abysmal driving controls.
