Max Payne 3: Three million shipped, PC version delayed

Max Payne 3 has done quite well for itself in terms of critical reception, and, according to Take-Two Interactive, 3 million units of the currently available Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions have been shipped. Not a bad launch!

It's also been revealed that the game will now come to PC on Friday, June 1. "Our community has always preferred a single worldwide launch date, and while we couldn't make it happen for the console versions, we decided to work toward a global release for Max Payne 3 on PC," explained VP of Publishing Jennifer Kolbe. "Due to production and logistical issues we could not bring the European launch forward, so we worked with US retail to align with the original European launch window and set a new global release date of June 1."

Based on Ryan's account, the PC version should be a joy to look at it for those of you with machines that can handle the game's DirectX 11 features. Here's hoping we don't get any unexpected surprises with this slightly late launch.
