flOw delayed

PS3 DLC slips again.

PlayStation 3 downloadable title flOw has been delayed until the New Year, according to reports.

The news comes after what appeared to be a concrete release date for the game earlier this month, promising its arrival in Sony's PlayStation Store on 19th December: today. Now IGN claims it's slipped.

flOw, originally released as a Flash-based web-game, is one of the most eagerly awaited 'arcade' titles for the next-generation system, heralded accross the internet as PlayStation 3's answer to Geometry Wars.

The game follows the evolution of a single-celled creature who munches its way up to the dizzying heights of complex organisms. Jenova Chen's original proved to be enormously popular, attracting more than 350,000 downloads, and Sony hopes its enhanced version of the game, developed by thatgamecompany, will have a desirable, PlayStation Network-boosting effect when facing off against Microsoft's established Xbox Live Arcade.

Still, delays shouldn't worry you lot, because unless you've paid a significant amount of money to dodge frowns from Sony and imported a PS3, you'll be waiting until the console's launch in March to play flOw, or anything at all on the system.
