LittleBigPlanet Release Update
By now, most every gamer on earth is well aware of the recent LittleBigPlanet delay - which, by the way, made CNN headlines today - but Sony continues to issue hazy release date expectations for North America and Europe. Those Qur'an expressions in one of the game's background songs have really caused a major fallout, but thankfully, the delays don't appear to be lengthy.
Now, we have the most updated information for you via PS3Fanboy. First of all, the game should still arrive in North America "during the week of October 27," which is next week, and that's not far behind the initial release date of October 21. Yeah, we realize you could've been playing it tomorrow, but you're gonna have to get past that. As for Euro gamers, we had previously heard that LBP wouldn't release until November 14, but SCEE has recently updated that information and said: the highly anticipated title will "start to appear in stores no later than the week commencing Monday 3rd November in the UK, Europe, Middle East, Australia and New Zealand, on a country by country basis." Okay, so that's a two-week delay at the most, and if you look at the positive angle of things, that just gives you more time to play the other great games out there. For example, Dead Space is an instant classic and Bioshock is awesome as expected.
We'll let you know if Sony decides to issue exact release dates for the aforementioned regions but for now, the "week of" estimates will have to do.
