No LittleBigPlanet Demo until '08
At least, that’s what was told to an MTV reporter when he asked a Sony PR manager about the game in a recent interview:
â€œI can officially confirm that there wonâ€™t be a demo this year,â€ Ron Eagle, senior manager of PR for Sony Computer Entertainment America told me. But he did say heâ€™s played 30 of the games 50 planned developer-made levels and that itâ€™s a lot of fun. He seemed genuinely pleased about his time with the game, but his company wonâ€™t be showing more â€œLBPâ€ at least until next month. Eagle could only add that the full game is set for a 2008 release.
Well, while that does blow very large and spectacular chunks to the droves of gamers out there aching to get hands on this highly anticipated title from Media Molecule, there may still be a light at the end of the tunnel. Consider the mass of games that release in the fall – this year, we’ve seen many of them. What a shame it would’ve been to have them take precedence over LittleBigPlanet!
Then again, considering it’s a PSN title, with a cheaper price tag and near unlimited multiplayer potential, a lot of PlayStation 3 gamers may have passed up on some of those other titles for LBP! See, it’s all in the way you look at it!
Any way it goes, we’ll be tossing around our sack boys and girls sometime in ’08. It’d be nice for it to be early ’08, but we’ll see about that soon enough.
