LittleBigPlanet delayed a week worldwide


Pre-order Little Big Planet for PS3SCEA and SCEE have announced a worldwide delay for their PS3 platformer/level editor LittleBigPlanet. The new release date in America has been moved from October 21 to 27. While one would assume the European release date will meet with a similar one-week delay from October 24 to 31, UK retailers are moving order shippings to November 14 according to CVG.

Here’s Sony’s official statement: “During the review process prior to the release of LittleBigPlanet, it has been brought to our attention that one of the background music tracks licensed from a record label for use in the game contains two expressions that can be found in the Qur’an. We have taken immediate action to rectify this and we sincerely apologise for any offence that this may have caused.”

Basically Sony are recalling all copies of LittleBigPlanet that were already sent out to stores to replace them.

Another newsflash just in! Look up in the sky! It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s…

Just Cause 2 delayed to 2009


Just Cause on Xbox 360Just Cause 2 has been delayed until sometime in 2009.

The game, which will be published by Eidos, is the sequel to developer Avalanche Studios’ previously game, Just Cause, that was released on last-gen consoles (and Xbox 360). It was an open-world action game and Just Cause 2 will continue in that vein while upping the ante considerably.

In Just Cause 2 Rico Rodriquez is back to wreak havoc once again, this time with a new destination, the huge playground of the South East Asian islands of Panau. The sequel features more stunts, vehicles and weapons than ever before and an incredible overhauled grappling hook system (the original let you grapple onto almost anything from anywhere). Panau itself is an incredibly detailed and vast 1000 sq km game world of different climates and ultra-realistic weather effects. Leap from your plane and skydive from 10,000 feet down into a tropical jungle, tear across an arid desert in a dune buggy or climb your way up a snowy mountain in a 4×4. The vast open-ended, unique gameplay is back, allowing you full freedom once again to free roam and explore the massive world of Panau and tackle your assignments however you want.

Additions and changes from the first game include: The removal of side missions (which have been replaced by “chaos activities” that reward destruction with increased influence in your associated factions), reworked artificial intelligence, a new lock-on system that allows you to target individual limbs on enemies, bigger and more devastating weapons and improved vehicle controls.

Sega push back Condemned 2 release


Condemned 2 delay

That’s right, it seems that Sega has put a slight delay on the release of upcoming FPS horror, Condemned 2: Bloodshot.

But don’t worry, the delay isn’t too long.  Originally set for a February release (stateside), Condemned 2 will now be released in March 2008, though no definitive date has been set.

Normally a delay will leave many people moaning, but having a game with such a heavy weight of promise upon it’s shoulders, I think a months delay, to ensure the game is fully polished, can’t be a bad thing.

In case you are wondering, the delay is said to affect both the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl DELAYED till February 10th 2008 in the US


Pre-Order Super Smash Bros. Brawl for Nintendo WiiIt’s official, Super Smash Bros. Brawl has been delayed till February 10th, 2008 in the United States, a Sunday. As it was, the old Super Smash Bros. Brawl release date of December 3rd was a lucky one for US gamers, because it was only the US that was getting the game in 2007, everyone else in the world had to wait. But it wasn’t to be. For the record, Japan will now be getting the game before the US on January 24th, 2008.

So now everyone will have to wait until early 2008 to play the highly anticipated next game in the Super Smash Bros. series. Do you think this is good news or bad news?

Personally, while it always sucks to have to wait even longer, I am glad that they delayed it because hopefully this will give Nintendo more time to make the game AAA to the Nth degree. I am expecting there to be more playable characters than before (let’s hope they snag some really special ones, like Mega Man, Tails & Knuckles, and Pac-Man, in addition to the recently unveiled Sonic in Super Smash Bros. Brawl), a much improved and more robust online play (Super Smash Bros. Brawl has online play as previously confirmed) that will work well from the start (since they are having much longer to iron out all the kinks) and twice the amount of unlockables as we would have had previously. This will also let people focus on Nintendo’s other big release (Super Mario Galaxy) even more.

So this really is a win-win situation for everyone. But what are your thoughts?! Voice them in our comment box below! — via 1-Up

The Darkness Demo delayed….Damn!



Our pals at Xbox360Fanboy have posted that the Darkness Demo has been delayed according to someone who is subscribed to the Myspace group of the Darkness.

Subject: With regret…

As some of you might already know the demo is not yet out although I have previously given information that it would be. The wicked embodiment of Light and Order, the Angelus, must be corrupting the Darkness somehow because the demo is not ready. I can guarantee there will be a demo. I cannot guarantee that it will come before the game releases. Maybe a sacrifice of some sort will provide the impetus needed to birth a demonstration of The Darkness…

It looks like the delay bug has hit another game. Monster Madness: Battle For Suburbia was originally slated for May 16th ‘07, but has now been pushed back two weeks to May 29th. A demo had been released recently for Monster Madness,but if you were looking forward to this game you’ll have to wait another two weeks. An official announcement and patch is expected soon.

Thanks Alex
