LittleBigPlanet: Out now in the UK

After a short delay due to an offending soundtrack, LittleBigPlanet is officially out now in the UK.  I had been wondering when exactly to post this, as across different markets, retailers in some instances have chosen to sell LittleBigPlanet early anyway.  So I’ve settled for the official (revised) release date in the UK, which is today: November 5th, 2008- Bonfire Night!

Now, I have had my copy of LittleBigPlanet on pre order with Amazon for quite some time.  Last week, I received a disturbing email from them:

Unfortunately, the release date for the item(s) listed below was changed by the supplier, and we
need to provide you with a new estimated delivery date based on the new release date:

“Little Big Planet (PS3)” [Video Game]
Estimated arrival date: 12/11/08 – 19/11/08

We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes.

As you can imagine, I’m not particularly impressed with this.  I was hoping that I’d be able to have a mess about on it when I go home for the weekend.  I’m just praying that Amazon are somehow mistaken and my copy will be there when I arrive home.  I mean, what kind of pre order arrives a week or two after release date?!

So, if you don’t see any LittleBigPlanet hands-on thoughts from me round here, you’ll know why.  I am 100% behind the game.  Other than that, I’d like to mention that this game should be a system seller and Christmas hit this year.  It comes quite highly recommended as well, so it’d probably be a good idea if you snagged a copy yourself.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed on PlayStation Platforms Next Week

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed on PlayStation Platforms Next Week– I’ve played on a demo of The Force Unleashed, and I had a right blast (pardon the pun).  Not quite sure if it justifies £40 though.  I’m simply torn, as the plot looks quite juicy.

LittleBigPlanet, Killzone 2 and Resistance 2 release windows confirmed

LittleBigPlanet, Killzone 2 and Resistance 2 release windows confirmed– SCEE has confirmed that LittleBigPlanet and Killzone 2 are due for release for September this year, with Insomniac’s launch title sequel, Resistance 2, down for a November release.  I can’t wait for any of these titles, they’re all very compelling.  At least it gives me enough time to save up for them!
