LittleBigPlanet 2 Delayed To January 2011

posted in: Game News | 0

Did you here? LittleBigPlanet 2 was delayed. MediaMolecule’s reason was — as per usual — to improve the game for its fans. I’m not sure if that’s the case or not, but it does mean that it won’t be buried by the likes of Call of Duty: Black Ops or Gran Turismo 5 which were debuting around that time frame.

Am I bummed about the delay? Not particularly. It wasn’t really on my radar since I haven’t seen/heard anything about it for awhile. There’s a beta out, but I haven’t even read up on any impressions or seen any footage of it.
