Let’s assume, for the moment, that you are European and made the deeply foolish decision not to buy Deadly Premonition when it released on your continent back in October of last year. You have made a terrible, terrible mistake but a new opportunity to redeem yourself has now arisen. In a post to his blog, Deadly Premonition director Swery65 announced that the game is arriving today as a Games on Demand title for European Xbox customers at a price of €19.99. This news follows the recent announcement that the title will release on the North American version of the service on July 15th.
So now you don’t have the excuse that an ugly box is going to clutter up your house. And you should be so lucky, anyway. The cover of the European version is a huge step up from the thing we got in the US, which was ugly enough that I desperately wanted to cover it with something else. The long and short of it is that you’re doing yourself a disservice if you haven’t at least tried to have this experience. I guarantee you will never have played anything quite like it before.
