CONFIRMED: LittleBigPlanet Set for Release on November 5th

Posted in PlayStation 3 with tags , , , , , , , on October 20, 2008 by Jonathan Cullen

Sony has given us another rollercoaster day as far as LittleBigPlanet is concerned!

First off, after Friday’s shennigans, Sony at the start of the day gave the game a release date of Monday November 3rd (Which means they must have stopped the Halloween launch) before deciding about nearly 2 hours ago that the game has got another release date.

However, this one is now set in stone for Wednesday November 5th.

It means now that while it won’t face Dead Space, Fable II or Far Cry 2 this Super Friday or even Fallout 3 next week, LittleBigPlanet has now gotten possibly the worst kind of a release date. It now launches 2 days before the worldwide release of Gears of War 2 on the Xbox 360.

And here we thought it was gonna be Resistance 2 facing GOW2.

The press release which confirmed the earlier date of November 3rd… my head is sore …is after the jump.
