Limbo on PlayStation 3 Gets a Release Date
Written Friday, July 08, 2011 By Richard Walker

Limbo developer Playdead has today confirmed the launch date for the PlayStation Network version of the game, with the oppressive and deliciously dark platformer, which will have you dying numerous times in a suitably gory, albeit silhouetted fashion.

Mark July 19th on your calendar for Limbo, if you're living in North America and pencil in July 20th as the date for the game in Europe.

No price has been announced yet, but if it's in keeping with the Xbox 360 version's price tag, then expect to pay around $15.

I'll buy it but not at $15. I played the demo on the 360 & loved it, so I could wait a couple of months for a price drop.

I am soooo happy that this is finally coming out on PS3. I played the demo for it on my mom's Xbox360 and fell in love with the game. I can't wait until the 19th ^.^

Right on! Played this on a buddy's Xbox360 and though it was amazing! Been looking forward to this finally being released on another console. Now if we could just get Super Meat Boy on the PS3 all would be well in the world of PSN.

I have this on my XBOX and it's a good game but very short. For anyone interested keep that in mind when they ask for $15.

I'll pick this up on sale, due to the length of it. But, I'm glad that we're getting these great games ported over. Now if we could get Super Meat Boy and Shadow Complex I'd be a happy camper.
