Painkiller Hell & Damnationhas been out on PC since Halloween, just long enough that I had forgotten console versions of the no-nonsense first-person shooter were ever announced. They were, and according to a new update from Nordic Games, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 gamers will have to continue waiting until April 5, 2013.
"We have been working around the clock to bring the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game in line with the quality and standard of the PC game," explained production and business development manager Reinhard Pollice. "There has been a slight delay so that the console communities can enjoy the fiendishly ghoulish experience that we know they want and deserve. In taking this additional time to add the final touches, we know that players will realize that the best things do come to those who wait!"
If anything, this serves as a good reminder that I still need to go download Painkiller HD. If you're fine with the console port or don't have a choice in the matter, know that it'll be launching at $29.99, with a collector's edition priced at $39.99.
