LittleBigPlanet Hits GameStop Today?
After Sony decided to recall LittleBigPlanet due to Koran expressions found in one of the game's background songs - a decision that met with plenty of controversy - SCEA and SCEE released revised estimated release dates.
SCEA said North American gamers can expect the excellent and innovative platformer to hit some time during "the week of October 27," while according to SCEE, Europe gets it a week later; for "the week of November 3." Now, technically, the week of October 27 begins tomorrow, but many people around the U.S. are reporting something mighty encouraging: it seems those who have pre-ordered the game have already received that automated phone call from GameStop to tell them LittleBigPlanet will be in the store today! These people received their call yesterday and last night - supposedly - so if you do have it pre-ordered at GameStop, we suggest giving 'em a call tomorrow. With no exact release date, it's tough to say when copies will start arriving at stores, but we can pretty much guarantee that Sony wants them out as fast as humanly possible. So if they could swing it, we think it's quite feasible to see LBP on store shelves at some point today.
You've probably already noticed, but we love LittleBigPlanet and we strongly recommend a purchase. So even if you don't have it pre-ordered and you stumble upon it within the next few days, don't pass on the opportunity. It's easily one of the best titles of the generation.
