LittleBigPlanet Vita Is Already Available in North America

Posted by Sammy Barker

Smooth sailing

It seems it’s impossible for Sony to release a new LittleBigPlanet title without some kind of drama. Regular readers will recall the original game being delayed due to controversial lyrics in one of its songs, while the sequel missed out on its initial holiday release date by quite some margin. LittleBigPlanet Vita looked like it was going to buck the emerging trend – but according to our inside sources an internal error has prompted GameStop stores across North America to start selling the title ahead of its 25th September release date.

An enormous NeoGAF thread has confirmed the scoop, with numerous posters claiming they have already purchased a copy from their local store. It’s unclear whether other retailers are following the specialist outlet’s lead, but it’s only a matter of time now that the street date has been broken.

As always with stories like this, if you’re planning on purchasing the game, it’s worth contacting your favourite shop first in order to avoid disappointment. Let us know how you get in the comments section below.

Jolly Good Fun!

edit @dirtyplastic I can't say for sure, but I haven't been able to connect. I would assume no but it could be an issue on my side.

I pre-ordered mine online, and they already charged me for it so hopefully that means it's being sent.

I got a call from my GameStop confirming the game was available for pickup yesterday...picked it up this morning. Haven't gotten far enough in it yet to know if the servers are up...the online pass downloaded no problem, but my pre-order bonus isn't working yet.

The online will work in North America on Tuesday the 18th, I'll guess the same for the DLC costumes. I was going to pre order it on the 23rd so I could get the extra costumes. But I think getting the game earlier is a nice trade for DLC.

Just went to Gamestop and saw it. It's crazy that they released it 12 days early.

The game is fantastic. Online stuff starts Tuesday. My Gamestop guys told me a Gamestop in California mistakenly sold the game early, and instead of causing an uproar Sony decided to say "okay fine let's just allow it to be sold".
