Section 8 A Download-Only Release for PS3

The TimeGate Studios-developed and multiplayer-focused sci-fi FPS Section 8 was released last September for the Xbox 360 and PC and upon its release, publisher SouthPeak Interactive insisted that the announced PS3 version of the game was delayed and not canceled. Both developer and publisher remained silent on the subject until yesterday when they revealed the project was still alive.

Today they announced via press release that Section 8 will not receive a retail release for the PS3. Instead, the title will be released as a Playstation Network download. Only a vague release window of ‘Spring’ was announced.

To make up for the wait the PSN version of Section 8 will feature 3 new maps exclusive to the Playstation 3. The game will also retain the X-Server functionality featured in the Xbox 360 version which allows gamers to host dedicated games on their PCs while playing them on their console.
