Cursing the sky abound as PS3 awesome-o looking title, LittleBigPlanet is delayed until late 2008.
If the release schedules in Electronic Gaming Monthly (or EGM, as they like to be called) are to be believed, the much hyped game has indeed been delayed until much later next year.
It’s not all that bad though. What with Killzone 2 and Metal Gear Solid 4 coming out next year, it’s hardly like there will be a drought of exclusive, kick ass titles to get down and dirty with. And then there are the multi-platform games like GTA IV, Battlefield 2 Bad Company, and Burnout Paradise to look forward to.
Either way, LittleBigPlanet could be set to rock some televisions next Christmas.

Yeah, but Uncharted was not delayed 89 times before its release.

psn id: gingo... i hate how all these games are being delayed but i would rather have them finished and bug free if i'm paying full money for them

How stupid can they be? this is arguably the most anticipated game for the ps3 for all of 08 and they delay it? Even if you dont care, this is a major hit for sony at least for the next 8 months. The stupid programmers are probably working 4 hour days. this totally sucks....

It is very annoying, but if it's finished and as great as we think it'll be then that will be great for xmas '08!

Will people please stop over reacting until an official statement has been made. So far only EGM and the sites repeating EGM's supposed date snafu, are saying this.
- 2:25pm EST - December 22nd, 2007
they should just stop announcing release dates for PS3 games. i understand its for the better but when arguably the top 3 PS3 games to look forward to next year (LBP, MGS4, KZ2) all get pushed back its just flat out frustrating, but i'll live becuz theres still a handful of AAA titles due out between now and April. But PS3 devs, in the future please try and be just a little bit more realistic with your release dates.

I retract previous statement.
"From around September or October, the PS3 will move into top gear: that’s when Killzone 2 will arrive, to truly take first-person shooters into the next-gen era. And – more excitingly in my book – when LittleBigPlanet – will arrive. Again, LBP will provide an unknown gameplay experience – firstly, because it is so unlike any other game and, secondly, because it will be up to us to define the gameplay. As the new video of LBP shows, it’s going to look amazing – we’ll get the whole low-down from developer Media Molecule next year (currently, they’ve got their heads down and are cracking on with finishing it)." -12/13/07

dang it...is this confirmed???
- 3:53pm EST - December 22nd, 2007
no, this is NOT an official statement so there may be some hope, but if its true and they dont say anything more about its delay, i think it would be right to say "has anyone noticed that almost every game that gets delayed, the company who makes it has never actually explained WHY they delayed it?" i was looking forward to this to, PS-DELAY-3 its sad but wat can we do...................

They are delaying it in order to make it SUPERB; by how the PS3 sales are now they dont need to rush the game. Sony is trying to make this game good enough that makes the PS3 sell more than the wii in a weekly basis. With MGS4 they will be outselling the 360
