2K Games has confirmed to Eurogamer that the PlayStation 3 version of The Darkness has been delayed until July in Europe.

Retailers are reporting 20th July, but, despite initially confirming that, 2K has said the current target is simply "July".

The Xbox 360 version is still down for release on 29th June, mind you, and you can read our review of that by clicking on the blue words.

2K's confirmation of the PS3 version's delay comes after retailers updated their listings for the game and were picked up on by bloggers.

Of course, if you're really desperate, you could always import the US version, which is released today - PS3 games being helpfully region-free.

Judging by our recent first impressions, you might well want to, with developer Starbreeze's tentacular comic-clad action winning high praise.
