The blog post detailing the delay was originally taken down on the PlayStation Blog, but has since been put back up. On the reasoning behind the delay, part of the blog post reads as follows:
“This will let us spend more time polishing and tuning the game, and it will give us a chance to incorporate some of the great feedback we’re receiving from the current limited beta to ensure we are creating the best possible fighting game experience.”
No doubt there will be a lot of disappointed fans who can’t wait to get their hands on Sony’s mash-up fighter, but at the end of the day, there is a reason for beta tests. Personally, I’m hoping that they are delaying to add Raziel, Kain and/or Crash Bandicoot to the roster.
