242w ago - It appears LittleBigPlanet is in for a second recall, but this time it's not for allegedly offensive Islamic themes.

Media Molecule has sent out an internal memo to GameStop stores saying to load up and ship back any copies of LittleBigPlanet as the upcoming LittleBigPlanet: Game of the Year Edition will be using the same sales SKU.

To quote: "Today, GameStop received an internal memo telling managers to load up their copies of LittleBigPlanet for a recall.

Why? It seems that the Game of the Year Edition of LittleBigPlanet will be using the same sale SKU as the original title and they'll only be offering the GOTY edition here on out."

LittleBigPlanet GOTY Edition Box Art Offers $30 in Bonus Content

245w ago - The LittleBigPlanet GOTY (Game Of The Year) Edition Box Art has recently been uncovered by Kotaku (linked above), and appears to sport a lower price and offer $30 in downloadable content.

According to IGN, online retailer Amazon (dead link now) brought to light a few bits of information on the title which has since been taken down from the site completely.

I mean, have you seen how cute these Sackboy things are? Seriously. Just precious.

The original report on the LittleBigPlanet re-release indicated that "much" of the downloadable content already available would be bundled with the core game. Whether that includes the dozens of available downloadable costumes or simply some of the game's user-created levels is unclear. The "valued at" makes us wonder.

Amazon doesn't offer a date, but it's...
