Ubisoft's high definition revamp of cult classic Beyond Good & Evil launches as a downloadable Xbox Live Arcade game today.

But what about the PlayStation 3 version?

All Ubisoft would say of the PlayStation Network download this morning is that it will be available "later this year".

On Xbox Live Arcade the game costs 800 Microsoft Points (£6.85) and weighs in at 1.68 GB (queue it up from the Xbox Marketplace).

As a part of Microsoft's Xbox Live Arcade House Party season promotion, BG&E is a timed Xbox 360 exclusive.

It follows similar timed exclusivity deals seen for other games, including Square Enix's superb Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.

Last week Ubisoft's Wang Xu told Eurogamer the publisher is pulling out all the stops to make sure BG&E HD is done right.

"From the beginning expectations were set very high: this would not be a quick and dirty port to make a quick buck, but instead a polished HD overhaul that would do justice to the greatness of the original, no matter how much time and resources would be needed.

"And it was great to see the entire group mobilised to ensure the IP finally starts to get the consideration it deserves."
