Here's what's bugging me ;/

They've announced Japan as the 30th of October, and they say it's a "Global Release", correct?

Now, if they've announced it on Japan, and it was gonna be released all at the same time, surely they'd announce it to the UK & US aswell?

'Cause what I'm thinking, is that they mean "It will be sold all over the world" by global release, not "It will be released all over the world at the same time".

Seeing as they're based in UK, and have announced a release for Japan, doesn't that hint something??

What do you think?

i think the 30th may not even be the japanese release. i think it's still unnanounced.

It is, It's on several sites, and I believe the Japanese version of www.littlebigplanet.com

I'll find a source later.

Here's the official site. (http://www.jp.playstation.com/scej/title/lbp/)

And for you lazy people:

That text at the bottom right says "2008-10-30", the release date.

I seriously doubt they'll tell us before anyone else. To them we are a small-time website who can't really whip up a lot of revenue for them. If anything, they'll announce it via their website, and let it spread from there.

Well, they could always throw us a bone and hint wildly at it :P?

That'd get us a lot of hits, and get everyone checking their site regularly for updates!

^probably will release it on their website, or the Playstation Blog. They posted the pre-order goodies and they said more will be posted.

There is really no chance of them telling us first. It doesn't make sense, fiscally.

I hope I am wrong, I really do.

30.10. is a Tuesday ... seems like an odd day of the week to release a game, though I guess there's no standard about the day to release.

However, I agree that 30.10. is the no. 1 candidate of being the actual, correct release date. However, it's the last day of October, so the Japanese just might've played the good old 'it's coming at this day the latest' trick.

So I believe in this date more than any of the UK or US date rumors that are circulating.

Let's hope it's a simultaneous release in Europe and the US. *crosses fingers*

Dude what calender are you using as the 30th Oct is clearly a Thursday and the last day of October is also the 31st
Still a weird day though
Hope it's out the week before as i Am flying away to Barcelona in Spain, Europe on the 31st for a long weekend on the lash with 20 odd lads and would be gutted i couldn't be playing for the first weekend
