PlayStation 3 gamers can at last download bank holdup shooter Payday: The Heist today.
It arrives a few weeks late priced £12.99, or comes free if you bought the four titles in Sony's PlayStation Network Play offer. It's worth a blast - Payday: The Heist stole an 8/10 from Eurogamer's Rich Stanton earlier this week.

Imagine the perfect robbery: you know the blueprints inside out, when the guards go for their coffee breaks, and exactly how to get into the safe. Everything goes without a hitch, and by the time the safe is found, you're laughing. Not a shot fired. Payday: The Heist doesn't work like that.
Despite the crime-caper presentation, tactical objectives and elaborate plans, Payday always comes down to shooting. Four players go into a situation - a bank with a vault full of juicy gold in the basement, an ambush to rescue a prisoner from a police convoy - and then get into a hell of a big fight with the police. It's a magpie co-op shooter, most obviously influenced by Left 4 Dead's dynamic approach to the team-based FPS and Modern Warfare's Spec Ops mode, and its developers are clearly students of the mass of 'horde' modes out there.
Payday has faults, but is very good indeed, an FPS where common elements are carefully made to fit its rhythm rather than just taken for granted: this sounds like faint praise, but it has the best ammo balancing I've seen in a long time. Players start fully-stocked and a perk can give bigger starting clips, but from that point every bullet has to be maximised. Enemies drop small amounts of ammo, but only enough to keep your head above water.
Co-operative PSN shooter Payday: The Heist will finally be available to download on 2nd November, Sony has announced.
"We know you all have been waiting for this announcement for some time and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience the delay may have caused you," Sony Europe exec Chris Sturr wrote on the EU PlayStation blog.
Payday was originally due for launch two weeks ago, and comes free to gamers who bought all four titles in Sony's recent PSN Network Play promotion.
There's still no Payday: The Heist on the European PlayStation Store. But Sony offered a few words about the game's continued absence.
"We are close to being able to confirm the release date of Payday: The Heist and are just waiting for Sony Online Entertainment to provide 100 per cent confirmation, which we hope will be with us later today," wrote EU PlayStation blog manager James Gallagher. "Sony Europe and SOE are working hard to get the game in your hands as soon as possible; thank you for your patience."
The content that is available this week relates to Halloween, which happens on Monday, 31st October. There's a sale, which includes a half-price deal on the Prince of Persia trilogy, plus extra discounts for members of PlayStation Plus.
