First LBP European Pre-Order Details

Media Molecule has already provided the LittleBigPlanet pre-order details for North America - pre-order the game at GameStop, get a code for that Kratos SackBoy costume - but what about Europe? Of course, LBP is coming to Europe as well, so we can't leave them out of the picture.

According to PSU, the first pre-purchase details for a European retailer have been released. If you plunk down a deposit on this promising cooperative-based platformer with Play.com, you will receive the special bonus item of a Nariko Sackboy (or now, SackGirl) costume. This kinda makes some logistical sense; while SCEA Santa Monica, a U.S. development studio, is responsible for the God of War franchise, Ninja Theory, a UK-based studio, created Heavenly Sword. But we do have to reiterate for those who might still be confused: this isn't an actual physical doll; this is a code you'll receive to make a virtual SackBoy with an authentic Nariko costume. Of course, you'll need access to the PlayStation Network to download the costume, but then again, who's buying LittleBigPlanet who doesn't have PSN access?

We assume more pre-order details will begin to pop up from brick and mortar stores throughout Europe, and when they do, we'll be sure to let you know about it. We know full well we have plenty of readers across the pond. :)

I'm confused now. I thought if you preordered it you get Kratos or Nariko sackboy skin to download for LBP PLUS!!! A sack to put your game into ::giggiddy:: an a sticker book. Not everything separated like i've been reading lately. I think you get the sack ::giggiddy:: if you preorder from like gamecrazy or something....wtf is going on!

naww, you only get the code to download Kratos costume if you preorder in NorthAmerica, nothing else. But I wonder if we could trade codes to either download the Nariko or Kratos costumes?

i wonder if the nariko sackboy speaks like a bloke aswell?

I couldn't get into Heavenly Sword, but then again i dont like things set in that era of time.

I'm still upset this game is being released on Blu-Ray. i thought it was a bonus game on HOME, i'll wait until reviews are written till i pounder on getting this.

They should be creative with this. They should add characters from other games like Snake or a warhawk character, you know?

Anyone else notice on the Code paper it shows all these different Sack boys/girls but there isn't a actual pic of the Kratos one anywhere on this thing! lol.

Kratos Sackboy is a GameStop and NA exclusive. Nariko is EU only. all other pre-order items are special for their place. like Amazon.
