    Buying this so hard. Deadly Premonition is one of my favorite games of this generation, and I never did finish it (360 was stolen so I lost my save >.<). So I'll be happy to give it another go with this updated version!

    • KnifeAndFork

      lol I bought a 360 for this game and I hate that system

  • SirRichard

    A free month of PS+ is quite the deal to swing for a game like this, I must say. Deadly Premonition is probably the only game I’d ever claim was worth putting up with the gameplay (which wasn’t even all that bad, in my opinion) to experience the story, definitely going to grab this on day one.

      Mr. SirRichard

      A cup of coffee I would suggest as well
      For this beverage, with this game, goes swell.
      Inspiration for this rhyming gimmick fell down a well.
      But back on track, I hope this game does sell.

      So says Mr. Stewart.

  • Was gonna buy it day one to begin with but the preorder gift is nice of them.

  • マッシュー

    What’s the free content for Amazon if you pre-order? Don’t see anything listed on Amazon’s page.

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      Amazon in the UK
      It that your problem?

      • マッシュー

        Ah, thanks. Must have missed that.

        • MrSirFeatherFang

          I would’ve jumped and preordered at Amazon if I didn’t read your comment lol

          • マッシュー

            Looks like us Americans don’t get much in the way of that, then. I just did Amazon any way since I get Prime for free, lol.

      • Ouch My Head Said Dionysus

        The pre-order offer details aren’t on’s page for the game, either.

  • KnifeAndFork

    I need this in my life…

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Yuriofwind is going to love this

  • Testsubject909

    Mr. Ishaan.

    Here I was getting myself a warm cup of coffee,
    Sat down and woke up my laptop and what do I see.
    But news of the upcoming game that we’ve been anticipating,
    And of which I believe many, in this excitement, will be participating.

    If you ever come in contact with this madman Mr. Hidetaka SWERY Suehiro,
    Convey this message, with our full intent, that he is our curious hero.
    For this oddball of an experience that he came to offer our kin,
    That will soon find it’s way within our shopping bin.

    So says Mr. Stewart.

  • Göran Isacson

    Aww yiss. Finally gonna get my sweet, sweaty hands on this one. It’s been a long wait, but oh so worth it… I hope.

  • Foxi Qnet

    I’d be quite excited for this… if only Deadly Premonition wasn’t terrible.

    • Testsubject909

      Mr. Foxi Qnet.

      Your opinion is understood.
      But we’ll toss it as dog food.

      So says Mr. Stewart.

      • Foxi Qnet

        Bought it, played it, city exploration was incredibly boring and the dialogue was tacky as hell, returned it the next day severely disappointed. ;)
