22nd November 2010 – Wellingborough, UK/… O-Games today announced that downloadable content for its eagerly-awaited PDC World Championship Darts: Pro Tour will be available as a PlayStation 3 exclusive when the game launches on 26th November 2010.
The DLC pack will add two new Professional Darts Corporation players to the mix – Peter Manley (2003 LVDC winner) and Wayne Mardle (2004 and 2005 LVDC runner-up).

PDC World Championship Darts: Pro Tour provides fluid, accurate and simple throwing dynamics, getting players closer to the action than ever before.
The latest iteration in the phenomenally successful franchise has evolved to support the latest developments in motion control gaming and will feature full PlayStation Move motion controller and Wii Motion+ support, in addition to standard PS3 and Xbox 360 control pads – allowing more players more ways of joining the game.
