Its Official! – LittleBigPlanet on shelves 10/21/08!

Mark Valledor's Avatar + Posted by Mark Valledor on Sep 19, 2008 // Marketing Manager, SCEA

For those of you who’ve pre-ordered and are anxiously waiting, we’ve received great news from Media Molecule – the game code has gone ‘GOLD’ and we’ve started manufacturing the PS3 cases, manuals and most importantly Blu-ray discs. Meaning, LittleBigPlanet will hit stores in North & Latin America on October 21 (With Europe releasing the same week). But trust us, you’ll want to be there with us during the first week. Why you ask?

During the first week only, to celebrate “Launch”, LBP fans everywhere will be able to download a FREE, Limited Edition Spacesuit costume for your SackBoy on the PLAYSTATION Store. (Get it…Launch…Spacesuit…o never mind)

LBP space man

In addition to the freebie, there will also be a rare “I was there Week One” T-Shirt available – to prove that you were… well… “there Week One.”

LBP tshirt

Now for those of you that haven’t pre-ordered, we would hate to think you went to the store and saw the dreadful “Sold Out” sign and missed out on the FREE download. So, if you want your spacesuit, you’re best bet is to guarantee your copy by heading to your nearest participating retailer and pre-ordering your copy. Besides…you’ll get additional pre-order goodies for FREE too.

***

In addition to the “gold” news, check out our LBP News Site for the official release for the final word on LittleBigPlanet’s features and how Media Molecule is still hard at work, to continually build the online community with new features to make your online experience an ever-evolving one.

See you there.

I have one question, if we don’t pre-order the game will we be able to purchase Nariko and Kratos via PSN?

    + Mark Valledor on September 19th, 2008 at 8:52 pm said:

    Not in the foreseeable future. We may have to ask the people that pre-ordered, how long the people who didn\’t pre-order should wait. That would be an interesting question.

i will say this it can be a system seller if u yous uses the right tv ad in each region.I loved those ps3 ads from last year hoilday season.

@Erico, there will be a bundle with LBP in Europe:

Yey!!! I Love Sackboy. I can’t wait to finally have my copy of the game! WooHoo!! October 21st can not come quick enough!!

Now, about those Sackboy plushies. Please tell me the ones up for pre-order on playasia.com are not the same as the ones we are getting it the US…The small ones are cute but I have been reading the comments on the various places that showed them and people don’t like the larger ones very much. Their heads are too big. I was hoping for something that looked more like the awesome handmade ones I saw on the Media Molecule site made by someones mother. Now those two Sackboys are adorable. Maybe you could make costumes for them as well.
I wish I was handy enough to make one myself. Guess it doesn’t really matter because I will probably buy it anyway just so I can have my very own Sackboy to love…

Let’s get one thing straight, I don’t play with stickers. I have been trying to pre-order LBP from Circuit City for the past month. Their website doesn’t advertise the LittleBigSticker book bonus, I have been to multiple Circuit City stores and nobody knows what I am talking about and they won’t let me pre-order the game until October. Finally, I called their 800 number and they were equally clueless. Again, I don’t play with stickers. Has anyone had any luck with the Circuit City pre-order?

PS: I have played with stickers in the past.

    That\’s weird, we\’ve designed them, approved them and received a bunch of them internally – so we know they\’re out there. We\’ll check to see (since you don\’t play with stickers)…

+ ps360 on September 19th, 2008 at 9:40 am said:

FYI for those in the US:

BestBuy is selling the “pre-order” (they call it the Bonus Pack) for $5.
It is a piece of paper with the code for Nariko (and maybe other downloads on launch day) inside a Blu-Ray box with the LBP cover. I thought there would be a disc or some sort inside containing goodies… but no…
But, the $5.00 is waived if you “really” pre-order the game.
So theorectically, if you have a way to purchase the game cheaper than the typical $59.99 price tag, and you REALLY want the Nariko costume, you can buy the “bonus pack” at BestBuy for $5.
Whether $5 is worth it or not is for your wallet to decide. :)

and oh…
YEEEEEAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGG!!!
