The latest hilarious mishap in the unfortunate life of PS3 involves LittleBigPlanet, the cutesy platform game that’s the darling of the media right now due to its user-generated content level designing promise.
The game had already shipped to retailers in the US and across Europe, though, with some going ahead and selling the copies they have in stock regardless, creating a patchy mess of a supply situation and blanket of confusion around what should’ve been Sony’s biggest game of the winter.
Sony and UK-based maker Media Molecule have today said they will officially relaunch a patched version of LBP in the UK “in the week commencing November 3rd,” while the American launch has been delayed until October 27.
The one game Sony looked like making a bit of money out of this Christmas, ruined. That is a big shame. You have no idea what emotions we are experiencing right now.
