The folks over at the official PlayStation blog broke the news:
For those of you who’ve pre-ordered and are anxiously waiting, we’ve received great news from Media Molecule – the game code has gone ‘GOLD’ and we’ve started manufacturing the PS3 cases, manuals and most importantly Blu-ray discs. Meaning, LittleBigPlanet will hit stores in North & Latin America on October 21 (With Europe releasing the same week). But trust us, you’ll want to be there with us during the first week. Why you ask?
During the first week only, to celebrate “Launch”, LBP fans everywhere will be able to download a FREE, Limited Edition Spacesuit costume for your SackBoy on the PLAYSTATION Store. (Get it…Launch…Spacesuit…o never mind)
In addition to the freebie, there will also be a rare “I was there Week One” T-Shirt available – to prove that you were… well… “there Week One.”
I think collecting SackBoy costumes is going to be a big hit with fans of LBP. They’re already offering different SackBoy outfits for folks who pre-order depending on which store you pre-order at and now theres two more outfits for folks who get the game on launch day. The spacesuit outfit is particularly impressive:
So if you’ve been waiting for this title to come out you may want to get a pre-order in ASAP.
