After waiting for Super Smash Bros. Brawl in 2007 only to see it delayed until February 2008 and the delayed again until March 2008, I have the distinct feeling that LittleBigPlanet 2 will meet the same fate, especially considering the fact that Medial Molecule is currently understaffed. They will either have to delay the game until next year or make some sacrifices to the main game and add the omitted material in future updates and DLC.

But would it be so terrible if the game was delayed? As far as I know, delaying the game would only mean that it would be that much better when the game is finally released. In SSBB's case, they added Sonic to the game.

On the other hand, delaying the game would mean delaying the DLC and a loss in potential profit. Not to mention the first LBP would become a lame duck while the standards to which critics hold LBP2 would grow ever higher the longer LBP2 takes to release.

What do you think? Delay or not delay?

To early to tell, innit? Besides we only heard that they want to release it this winter and that is a long time away. :)

They should be able to finish it by winter based on the progress shown in the trailer. But didnt the original LBP get delayed? I think it did.
I'll admit ill be a little sad if its delayed, but I can live I guess.

I think with LBP they were talking about releasing in 2007, or early 2008, so that was delayed...and then there was the recall...so...I unno.

I think they have already thought about this, they said they have been working on this for a while i might recall, i think they choose the date to give them some playing time just to make sure that we are not disappointed. And with all the stuff from LBP in there, all the old tools allready made and perfected, im sure they will get it completed in time, and the fact they said "winter 2010" means it could be early or late giving them the time they need.

I agree with this, it would be more likely to be delayed if they said it came out in oh, July or August.

Nope, kill me now.
Oh wait...

But if we can wait 6-7 months, I'm sure we wouldn't mind waiting longer, especially if it's to better the game even further.

Altho i wouldn't mind waiting any longer, as weird as it sounds, i love glitchy new games, gives them that "New game" feeling, and once all the major stuf is patched up its nice going "man remember when this and that used to happen"? :p

I don't even like the wait we have to endure now. I wish they'd announced it later in the year. That said, if a delay is necessary to ensure the quality of the game then I can't really complain. Whatever it takes to make it the best it can be is fine with me and frankly I don't think I could handle another game that's as glitchy as the first LBP. :boo:

Someone leaked it on twitter to his "followers" by accident. I think MM wanted to surprise us with the game because the video they made showed a lot of new stuff for a game that had only just been announced I think.

i actually like waiting for games, the excitement of watching new trailers, images and previews is almost better than playing the real game. just almost. i get really ****** though when games are delayed because of nit-picking and/or ***** and giggles.

Am I willing to wait? No. .........What's that? Whether I'm willing or not has no actual bearing on when the game comes out? Then I guess I'll wait until the game comes out, willingness notwithstanding ;)

you can't compare this to SSBB man...SSBB sucked so much a** ....seriously that game made it look like it was going to be raging success but turned into so much fail....and its the LAST smash bros....and they never included DLC or anything....the lag in online is retarded....and tournaments are always FOX vs FALCO....this game crashed and burned and the staff working on it were lazy a-holes


LBP2 on the other hand was being worked on SINCE LBP release or a little afterwards which is exactly WHY it shouldn't be delayed because as we know they wouldn't put a release date without being more on the sure side that it would be completed....sure they're understaffed....but it's not a BIG chunk that's going to make this project fail or take too long...im sure they'll get it out in time because Mm loves LBP and wants people to love it as much as they do...unlike nintendo with SSBB which was a lazy attempt to feed the fanboys....that failed miserably

anyways no i dont think we should wait longer since technically speaking we've been waiting since LBP first release

It's not like any game designers sit around saying: "Hey, all the fans a wating for our release date to come, our game is finished, it would perfectly fit by PR (No rival releases) so lets just punch them in the face and delay it for... 2 months?! Vacation, anyone? "

LBP is certainly in another league compared to Super Smash Bros., but SSBB didn't suck. It simply wasn't a big improvement to SSBM, which nintendo fans like myself played to death. After it was delayed, our expectations rose and when we finally played it, it turned out to be Melee with a few more characters and a very repetitive adventure mode that was comparable to a Kirby game at best. Needless to say, I don't play Brawl anymore, because it was so disappointingly monotonous.

From what I've seen so far, LBP2 won't meet the same fate, but seeing as they haven't finished the game and they still have to hire people in order to get the game done by Winter, I'm thinking that a delay might be necessary in order for it to surpass the expectations of those who want an improvement to LBP1 such as more power-ups (they are still tweaking those last I checked) or a longer Story mode (how long does it take for them to make a level again?).

idk man...i was a Melee to death fan..loved it...heard Brawl was the final one...and it was the biggest crap ever...its melee with a couple more characters...some that failed miserably (cpt.olimar, ROB, and the CLONES they promised wouldnt be made anyone?) and the story mode with ZERO voices (since when is snake deaf?) and a kingdom hearts rip off (heartless?) with no point whatsoever....so idk to me it sucked big time....the only reason i played it often was for texture swapping and even that got boring....and NO DLC for the FINAL smash bros?....i hate nintendo :(

anyways back on topic:

technically they expect the game to be released by the end of november...so technically winter December would be the new release date if anything...hope so

Hey. . . those are my two fav. characters in brawl. :(

Anyways. If they were to delay the game for a few more moths i wouldn't mind, if it meant we were to get a much more polished and satisfactory version of the game.

To be honest, I don't think they can wait any longer. Why?

First, because I want to play with ASAP!

But also, because LBP1 is getting old. Despite how creative the community is, our best creators are hitting the limits of what LBP1 can do.

Because of this, they need a release LBP2 in a good position to reclaim that community, and introduce new people to it, especially those that got a new PS3. Releasing this holiday season does many things as much as it causes a problem by competing with so many other games.

First, people will get LBP2 as a gift for the holidays. Upon receiving that gift, they'll often break it out to play while the family is gathered together. This exposes young and old to the game and gets it in their minds, which can be useful for word of mouth later on.

Unless I feel like scraping up 60 dollars by November, I'm perfectly content with a Christmas release.

Yeah i would wait. All i care about is the fact that LBP2 is ACTUALLY coming, the game none of us thought would ever come ;) But still..The longest i would wait is until the end of Q1 2011 cause any longer would just kill me LOL...

I trust Media Molecule, and I just don't see a delay happening. If it did, I'd be very disappointed.

Anyway, they've got enough time. Alex Evans seemed pretty sure it's coming out in 2010.

I honestly don't care. If it comes out early or on time, yay for us. If it gets delayed, at least i'll be a better game in the end.
Though I do doubt it will be delayed, MM wouldn't do that to us. RIGHT?

LBP 2 WAS DELAYED?!?

Oh god, I'll have to keep playing stupid dumb boring LBP until then.

Hmmmm. Let's just hope that it doesn't get delayed because of offending Muslims again! XD
