LittleBigPlanet not region locked

Thank you sweet, sweet god of the SackBoys.

LittleBigPlanet is not region locked, contrary to recent reports swirling around the Internet.

"As many of you may have heard already in an interview at Leipzig the senior producer for LittleBigPlanet announced that the game is region locked. This is in fact not the case, and all shared levels in the game will be available worldwide," an SCE developer explained. "The confusion arose out of regional differences in how moderation will work as there are different legal rules each region have to play by, and at one point this looked like it may require the game to be independent in each region – however this has been worked around and there will only be one region for the game…. a LittleBigRegion."

It would have been ironic if LittleBigPlanet was limited by the different regions. Then we’d have to start calling it LittleBigContinents, and that’s a lot less catchy.
