Alone in the Dark on PS3

Announced. Again.

Atari's used E3 to announce that Alone in the Dark is coming to PlayStation 3 as well as Xbox 360 and PC. Which isn't too surprising since Sony did that at the Tokyo Game Show last year - even if nobody at Atari seemed to remember until a few days ago.

Anyway, the PS3 version will launch simultaneously alongside the other ones, and David Nadal of developer Eden Games says, "The team is having a fantastic time bringing Alone in the Dark to life using the incredible processing power of the PlayStation 3 kits.

"It's a very exciting time for us, when we begin to see how the powerful new generation of hardware can help us realize our ideas in a way that hasn't been possible before," he explained.

It's certainly looking jolly nice. Backroom demonstrations at E3 suggested that Eden's got some excellent ideas up its sleeve for when the game comes out next year. As well as an episodic approach, which splits the game into TV-episode-style chunks, it makes impressive use of light and dark and has some clever ideas like an "on-body" inventory (you just look down at what's in your pockets) and having to hot-wire cars you nick from garages if you can't find the keys - with the prospect of alerting enemies if you accidentally connect the wrong wires in the process.

We'll bring you more on AITD soon.
