Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time Slides onto PSN February 5th, 2013
The next iteration in the long running PlayStation franchise Sly Cooper subtitled Thieves In Time is now destined for retail and PSN in North America on February 5th, 2013. This announcement comes clean on the US PlayStation Blog with the exact release date, while the same post on the EU PlayStation Blog mentions only a March release window.
Commenters on the EU PlayStation Blog post are not too thrilled about the delay. One going as far as to say “Wait, the yanks get it Feb 5th while us next month. That’s it, I seriously had enough with SCEE!” This back and forth with games coming out in one territory before the other shouldn’t be cause for so much grief.
Territory specific delays are typically due to the localization required to get the title into the various European countries. North America has only a few languages compared to the dozen or more in Europe.
Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time comes to both regions with an especially rich deal. Buy the PS3 version in retail and waiting inside the packaging you ‘ll find a voucher code for the Vita version on PSN. Other Cross Buy entitled games include PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale and Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault.
