Sony Computer Entertainment and Media Molecule are delighted to announce that exclusive PLAYSTATION®3 title LittleBigPlanet™ has gone gold!
The release schedule looks like this:
October 21st North America & Latin America
October 22nd Europe, Australia & New Zealand
October 24th UK & Ireland
However, this is only the beginning. We won’t be taking it easy just because we have started to manufacture the game! Media Molecule and SCE have a long-term commitment towards expanding the world of LittleBigPlanet and working hard to make sure that our fans get amazing new content and features via PLAYSTATION®Network.
To start with, there will be a free Spaceman costume for Sackboy, perfect for preparing to launch! There will also be a rare “Week One” Sackboy t-shirt to prove that you were there at the start. Both items will be available for a limited time only.
Of course, it’s not just about what your Sackboy will be wearing this season, it’s what he can do that counts. LittleBigPlanet delivers over 50 levels to play out of the box either on your own or in up to 4-player multiplayer. You also get the most intuitive and powerful content creation tools ever seen in a console game, enabling you to make whatever you want. Then, thanks to the ability to share your creations or download others via PLAYSTATION®Network, the world of LittleBigPlanet will keep on growing forever as gamers make their own games: there will be new experiences to play every time you go online!
So what more can we possibly add?
Well, that’s up to you! We know that you will come up with ideas that will surprise even us, so let us know what would make your LittleBigPlanet a better place. To get you started we are already hard at work on some cool ideas for the way gamers can interact, including the ability to create levels together online in a multiplayer jamming mode! But there isn't long to wait before you can get your hands on the game, and then you can tell us what you would like to see us work on next!
It's a common misconception that a "worldwide" release date means the same day.
North America tends to release new games into store on a Tuesday, while the UK goes on Friday, Scandinavia on Thursday and so on around the world. The upshot is that a worldwide release date actually means worldwide release week.
Anyway, for LBP, yes we're looking at a worldwide date.
