“The Dark Edition pre-orders have gone better than expected and are now sold out in the UK,” a Namco spokesperson said. “We have pre-order activity going into GAME this week, so we are planning to release the title across all channels at this time.”

Once you get the game in your house though, level artist Marek Ziemak said if possible, you will want to install the game on your Xbox 360 hard drive.

“That’s a thing we want to stress, that if it’s possible to install the game [then do so], because the streams will be faster, you’ll experience some better visual quality, because the hard drive is much faster than any media,” he said.

“It will improve loading times, it will improve the quality of the meshes, probably also because we have faster streaming means faster movement between memory and hard drives, so you’d be able to load the good chunks and then just change them directly from your hard drive.”

If you don’t have room then, you might want to shuffle things around a bit.

The Enhanced version of the game’s out in April for PC and 360.
