Sony has seen fit to update us with a less vague (but not by much) release date for the Qur'an-tastic LittleBigPlanet in European territories. While the assumption was that the week-long delay in America would be mirrored in Europe (why wouldn't it?) it seems that may not be the case. The official line is that the game "will start to appear in stores no later than the week commencing Monday 3rd November in the UK, Europe, Middle East, Australia and New Zealand, on a country by country basis."

"We appreciate all the enthusiasm surrounding this much anticipated title and we would like to thank PlayStation fans for their support and understanding," Sony continues. We're curious to know exactly what "no later than" means. Best case scenario is that the game will suffer only a week delay. Worst case is two weeks. Really, it could be worse. You could be stabbed.

[UPDATE] SCEE has confirmed that the UK release will now be November 5th. Now let's all forget about this LittleBigDelay and move on to other games for the next couple of weeks.
