Was LittleBigPlanet 2 Just Un-Delayed? [Update]

November 2, 2010 Written by Corey Schwanz

LittleBigPlanet 2 was unfortunately delayed from the middle of November (later this month) to the middle of January in 2011. But does Amazon.co.uk know something that we don’t? Was the game’s release date pushed UP?

[Update] Media Molecule’s official LittleBigPlanet Twitter account finally got wind of the rumors and squashed them once and for all.

Despite rumours to the contrary, LittleBigPlanet 2 will be releasing in January 2011. 🙂

Just this morning, Amazon’s UK site changed the release date of Media Molecule’s platform for games. Instead of the January 18, 2011 date that everyone was still getting used to, the website changed the release date of LittleBigPlanet 2 to December 17th, 2010.

Huh?

Keep in mind that this could all be a mistake. But it could be a real Christmas miracle. Even though the delay of Gran Turismo 5 was said to be by the “2010 Holiday Season” (and supposedly guaranteed by Christmas), Sony’s Christmas launch window is looking pretty slim on exclusives. Maybe this means that GT5 will be delayed to the beginning of next year in exchange. Who knows? If Media Molecule somehow can put out their massive title before the end of the year it would certainly help push out those PS3s. Stay tuned to PlayStation LifeStyle for any upcoming news, either from Sony or Amazon, about this story.
