Recently it was reported that LittleBigPlanet early copies were available from various retailers ahead of the street date, including GameStop and both WalMart and Target.
Today, SCEA's Marketing Manager Mark Valledor had the following comments to say regarding them:
Looks like a lucky few LittleBigPlanet fans have started to receive their copies over the weekend. We wanted to provide a quick update for the those eager to get online.
Looks like our production line churned out new copies quicker than our original schedule, and a few of our retailers did what they could to take care of the fans who pre-ordered ASAP.
Whether you want to start playing with your friends, sharing your creations online or getting your mitts on the pre-order goodies... hold tight.
If you're one of those, take advantage of the headstart by unlocking all the goodies on the disc and start PLAYing and CREATEing and check back here or on the LittleBigPlanet News Site (really, really) soon for updates on the server and pre-order redemption status.
Exciting times ahead...
