Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has told Eurogamer that Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction has been delayed - and won't now be released until November.

The game was originally supposed to be out on 23rd October in both the US and Europe, as announced recently.

But now a post on the PlayStation blog has revealed a new North American release date of 30th October, with the demo arriving on PlayStation Network "by October 11th" over there.

A Sony spokesperson told Eurogamer a specific date for the European release of R&C has yet to be confirmed. However, he did say it will hit the shops some time in "early November", with the demo due out in "mid-October".

According to SCEA's Greg Phillips "the extra wait will be worth it". He said Insomiac "has been hard at work squeezing every last detail, dance move and tool of destruction" into the game.

It certainly looked spanky when we got the chance to go hands-on earlier this month - check out the preview for more info.
