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. :)
