LittleBigPlanet Achieves Gold Status

The release date has been solidified for some time now, but nothing is ever certain until the game goes Gold. Well, welcome to Golden status, LittleBigPlanet!

Thanks to the announcement over at the official PlayStation blog, we now know the October 21 release date for North America and Latin America is written in stone, as Media Molecule and Sony have already started making the "PS3 cases, manuals and most importantly Blu-Ray discs." If European gamers are worried, don't fret; the game will arrive in Europe "the same week" of October 21. Oh, and if you're thinking about waiting (Christmas gift, maybe?), you might want to reconsider: for those who purchase the game in the first week of its availability, players will be able to download a free Limited Edition Spacesuit costume for your SackBoy. The joke here is, of course, they're celebrating the "launch" of LittleBigPlanet, so a spacesuit...yeah, you get it. You'll also get a free "I was there Week One" t-shirt, and if you want to check out that Spacesuit, visit the PlayStation blog. LittleBigPlanet is guaranteed to be gigantic!

By the way, keep checking back as we locate more beta test details, which shouldn't be very far off. Between the LBP and Resistance 2 betas, it's hard to know if we should buy games in the store, or just wait to beta test for a few months!

btw i was just browsing the Information Board on the PS3 and it had some news regarding LBP. it says LBP to be available on PSN Store in October. So does that mean we'll be able to buy this title from PSN ?? coz i recall reading an article about LBP only being on Bluray

No, Sony has already explained this. LBP takes up over 40 gigs on a Blu-Ray disc, so there's no WAY it'll be downloadable on the Store.

They must be talking about extra content for the game.

I'm very excited although I pre-ordered from gamestop and have yet to get my code for Kratos when I called them they said I can pick up the code now and when I went into the store they told me that I had to wait till release.I'm pissed,because if I don't get my Kratos skin I will have to kick some gamestop employee @$$,but anyways I excited about this and from the looks of the pictures the "I was there week one" shirt is a in game item as well.

I will put down a pre-order right now, I think European release is 29th October that is at least what the online store I am ordering from.
It's a Norwegian store so won't post link here.

I'm going to pay close attention to the player reviews on this one ... if the community loves it I'll get it.
