Deadly Premonition is on its way to PS3

It's been an exciting few weeks in the world of video games, with several big hitters released to get March off to a splendid start. But while people were busy speeding across the universe to save mankind in Mass Effect 3 and beating opponents to a pulp in Tekken X Street Fighter, a sliver of news streaked across the internet, causing some people - myself included - to break down in tears of unbridled joy.

Deadly Premonition is coming to PlayStation 3.

While Swery 65's Lynchian love-in has appeared previously on Sony's console under the guise of Red Seeds Profile in Japan, this will mark the first time the game has made it to PS3 in the West.

But this won't simply be a port of the fabulous 360 version. Oh no, this version will take the form of a director's cut. While we don't know yet what treats are in store, this news is sure to delight those who fell for Greenvale's outlandish charms back in 2010.

No release details have come to light but expect more news to float to the surface at this year's E3 in Los Angeles.

Personally, I can't wait. How about you, Zach?

Downloaded this when it was made available on Games on Demand last year. Brilliant story and depth to most of the characters, as long as you look past the last-gen graphics and control issues. Shame I don't have a PS3 or I'd happily buy this again. I'll just have to look forward to SWERY's follow up (fingers crossed).
