LittleBigPlanet 2 Slips to 2011



Gamers will need to wait a little bit longer to start playing with Sackboy a second time around.

When originally announced [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/100562-LittleBigPlanet-2-Changes-the-Game-by-Letting-You-Design-It], Media Molecule's second turn with Sackboy was supposed to hit shelves this holiday season. Unfortunately, it looks like the sequel to 2008's adorably cheerful make-your-own-platformer is taking a little longer than expected.

In a post on the LBP site [http://www.littlebigplanet.com/en-gb/news/article/important_news_regarding_the_release_date_of_littlebigplanet_2/], Media Molecule said that despite "working like powered-up space ninjas" on the game, the team wouldn't be able to finish by the end of the year - but only barely. The game is now scheduled to hit in January 2011.

[blockquote][Because] we love what we've made, and we love our little sack-friends, and most of all we love all our fans out there, we couldn't let you all get together until we knew we were giving you the best experience imaginable ...

We know this will come as disappointing news for all you LittleBigPlanet fans, and believe us, we are disappointed too. We are a tight-knit team and we take enormous pride in our work, so to raise the bar we've set with the original LittleBigPlanet, a game that has been so embraced by all, we've agreed to allow ourselves a bit more time to deliver the experience that our great fans and community deserve.[/blockquote]

It's just a game delay, guys. I think every gamer would rather a game come out a few months later and be good than come out earlier and be bad, no?

Still pisses me off though. It was the one game I was really looking forward to.

But atleast it's not due to some silly controversy surrounding a certain Somali song, like with the first game.

Ah well, as long as they are making it better I can wait a little while longer. I got other games to complete until then.

Damn, I was really looking forward to LBP2. Oh well, at least I still have a few others to look forward to.

I'm kind of glad they're delaying it. The beta is buggy as hell and I was worried they hadn't given themselves enough time to patch it up.

I died a little inside when I read that, but the way they said it made it even sadder, because they're so apologetic and nice about it.

I kinda thought it was already slated for a 2011 release, shows how attentive I've been about it. >_< Oh well, this doesn't change my plans much here, and yeah I kinda like it when devs pushes a game back because they want to polish it up a bit. Of course that can be taken to far *coughs Duke Nukem *coughs*

Shame it's going to miss the christmas period. If it was released before christmas, I reckon they'd have ended up running out of copies. It'll still sell well, obviously, because LBP is frickin' awesome, but I don't think quite so much as it would do just before christmas.

Oh darn, that's a shame. While I haven't played LittleBigPlanet as much as I hoped I would, I still loved every minute I played it, and Media Molecule is on the "Developers to Support" list so I wanted to get my hands on LittleBigPlanet 2 soon.

Oh well, still got Gran Turismo 5 and Fallout:New Vegas to keep me occupied.

I'm actually kind of hoping this gets canned forever. I haven't heard anything about this game integrating the community from the last game, and I see very little improvement they could do in the game that wouldn't come in the form of level & character packs and small upgrades, like they did with the first game.

Alas, 'tis a cruel world for wonderful art.

Well, this'll give me time to polish up on LBP 1 and try to complete the damn thing.

In the trailer it says that all the community levels created for LBP will still be there in LBP2.
