Big-hitting PS3 sequel LittleBigPlanet 2 has been delayed until 2011. Why? It's all about the patches.
The first game needed a patch or two around release to get things in order, and that's something developers would like to avoid second time around, particularly since not everyone who owns a PlayStation 3 is connected to the PlayStation Network.
"We respect people don't have online and don't want to patch their game to get the full experience", Media Molecule's Alex Evans told VG247. "We could have shipped it and it would have been fine, however we realised that with just a couple of extra week's we could make the game super amazing, adding the super onto the already amazing which exists today."
Disappointing, but we appreciate the honesty!
