Child of Eden PS3 pushed back a week

September 27 release date, full 3D and PlayStation Move support confirmed for Tetsuya Mizuguchi's latest.

by

The PlayStation 3 version of Child of Eden needs a slightly longer gestation period, as Ubisoft today announced the psychedelic shooter--previously expected September 20--has been pushed back a week to September 27. It's not all bad news, as the publisher also confirmed Child of Eden will support the PlayStation Move controller and 3D displays.

Child of 3Den?

Developed by Tetsuya Mizuguchi's Q Entertainment and originally released on the Xbox 360 with Kinect support in June, Child of Eden is largely in keeping with the developer's previous work. The game takes its cues in large part from Mizuguchi's acclaimed rhythm shooter Rez, and it features the same style of music-enhanced shooter gameplay with psychedelic visuals.

It also bears a storyline: Gamers will attempt to rescue the embattled Project Lumi, which is an effort to "reproduce a human personality inside Eden, the archive of all human memories." A virus has invaded the program, however, and players must defeat it before all hope is lost.

The game's visual style approximates a virtual reality universe and is heavily reliant on geometric shapes in motion against an ever-shifting background. The shapes join to take on aspects of the virus, evolving from tiny single-block creatures into giant wormlike monstrosities.

Well that this game has been delayed for ps3 isnt a surprise. I mean it does have to live up to 360 graphics and try to, at least, get in the same ballpark for frame rate. This developer has it's work cut out for it. Good luck guys. I just hope you don't have to dumb it down too much for ye' ol' ps3.

Anyone who complains that this game is too 'short' is clearly new to the hobby and has no sense of perspective. It's a shooter - you replay it to get better at it, get higher scores and beat the harder difficulty settings. Unless you have all of the Achievements on this bad boy in your gamer profile, you're either full of B.S. or you suck, and you're just complaining because a game had the gall to not let you win by mashing your head against the controller.

This game is so over hyped, Played it with Kinect too. There are only 5 levels and the game can get annoyingly hard at times

The game is like 2 hours long and is boring. If this is your type of thing I'd say just rent it

No matter how good/refreshing the game is supposed to be, I also know it is very short. I hope redbox gets it for ps3, otherwise I won't get to it until gamefly starts it's pc rentals and I'll sign up for a console rental of this. I really have been wanting to play it, but a single-digit (countable on one partial hand) hour playtime simply is not purchase material.

Move support ftw. This is going to be my killer app for that peripheral simply because if it's anywhere as good as sin and punishment 2 for Wii as far as the controls go, Move will be the only way to play this.

Didn't know this was that highly anticipated by PS3 owners, seeing it's the top news of the day so far. Must be a slow news day...
