Gamescom '12: Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time delayed until 2013

If you're hoping to sink your teeth into some Sly Cooper action this year, you'll have to grab the racoon's HD collection and a PlayStation 3, I'm afraid, because PS Vita title Thieves in Time has been delayed until 2013.

"Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time will be releasing [sic] in February 2013 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita," a statement from Sony reads.

"With a robust and diverse catalog of first and third party content launching this holiday season - including Wonderbook: Book of Spells, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, LittleBigPlanet Karting, Assassin's Creed III, Assassin's Creed III Liberation, Madden 13, and Call of Duty: Black Ops - Declassified - we have decided to release Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time in early 2013 to ensure gamers continue to have a variety of content to enjoy after the holidays and into the New Year."

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time will be one of the first PS Vita releases to be included in Sony's newly announced Cross Buy promotion, which basically means that you'll get a free copy for your handheld if you buy it for your PS3 first.
