Sony Responds to Little Big Planet 2 Delay Rumors


A rumor around the Internet has been spreading about the possible delay of one of the most anticipated PS3 exclusives of the year. Little Big Planet 2 is still promised for a November release in North America but retailers around the world are singing a different tune.

Reports from VG247 are implying that a date for the European version of the game is still up in the air and it just may skip 2010. The official LBP 2 website for Japan has the game dated for 2011 but I don’t recall Sony announcing a release date for that country before.

So far retailers in the US - like Amazon, GameStop, and Walmart- still have LBP 2 dated for November 16th so perhaps only countries outside of North America will  have to wait until 2011.

SCEE remains mum on the news offering the usual “we won’t comment on rumour or speculation” response.

    I don’t trust VG247. They’ve failed on a lot of rumors in the past.

    Grrr. i just realized it’s the response to the rumor. Still. I doubt with a 11/16 date they decide to just push the game back.

    Well the sooner it comes out the better, the first was literally one of the top 10 games of all time and the second can only improve on their original ideas, and can add more through add ons like they’ve been doing for the first

    I understand the whole ‘We Don’t Comment on rumours/speculation’ bit but when it comes to release dates I do wish they’d clear it up as soon as possible just so we know one way or another.

    “On the upside, we are going to find a way to give more of you a taste of LBP2 prior to launch, so stay tuned. ”

    Open Beta??

    Well I am disappointed but if it needs to be then it needs to be.

    An open beta would be pretty cool.
