LittleBigPlanet Recalled Due to LBP: Game of the Year Edition SKU

200°
265w 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."

200°
266w ago - As a follow-up to our previous post, today SCEA Marketing Manager Mark Valledor has officially announced LittleBigPlanet - Game of the Year Edition for PS3. According to the boxart (below), it's also bound for PlayStation Home.

To quote: Today, we're pleased to announce the upcoming release of LittleBigPlanet - Game of the Year edition, which will ship to stores on September 8th for $59.99 with a "Sackful" of bonus content.

First off, you'll get the full award-winning LittleBigPlanet gameplay experience, or as we like to call it "Play Create Share" - ok, that was a bit to 'infomercially' (sorry), but you get the idea.

Everything that made LittleBigPlanet one of the biggest games on the PS3 is in there.





Next, to give our new fans a taste of the over 1,000,000 user-generated levels available on the PlayStation Network, Media Molecule has hand-picked 18 extraordinary people to Create bonus levels specifically for the GOTY edition - complete with interviews with each creator. We loved how these levels turned out and hope you will to.

And, for everyone looking for a great value, the...
 

Bungie: So Our Game's Called Halo - Halo Ten Year Anniversary

100°
270w ago - Ten years ago on July 21st, 1999: Macworld, New York. Apple's iCEO Steve Jobs yields the stage for a brief but soon to be memorable moment to Bungie co-founder Jason Jones.

Jones, looking a bit nervous, steps into the fore, shakes Jobs' hand and begins quite simply:

"So our game's called Halo..."

To quote: Internally, the title was known as Blam! - a moniker bestowed when Jones couldn't bring himself to use the original working title, Monkeynuts, in front of his own mother. Whatever the name, this is the first time the public has laid eyes on the project.

To write the sum of a decade is a monumental task. Bungie's history is encoded into the games we've made and defined by the men and women who've worked inside the studio's walls - people who have in many cases become a family. And of course we've also been shaped, inspired, and downright awestruck over the community that's followed alongside.

To say thank you for a decade is even more of a monumental task. We say it anyway. Thank you for more than ten years of community involvement, contribution, and support.

Thanks for the passion, for the letters, for the ravenous support (and defense) of us online, for pouring through our stories, for getting to the farthest...

Analyst: Two New GTA IV DLC Episodes Due Next Year

100°
273w ago - Take-Two and Rockstar are expected to release two brand new downloadable episodes for Grand Theft Auto IV in fiscal 2010, and release GTA V the following financial year.

According to analyst Todd Mitchell, who told GamesIndustry.biz (linked above) that following the release of Xbox 360 exclusives The Lost and the Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony, two all-new episodes are due - possibly across both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 platforms.

To quote: "I would expect that there would be two more pieces of downloadable content for GTA IV, that's what has been indicated to me, although formats are unsure. It's been indicated to me to me that would be the case," said Mitchell, of Kaufman Bros. Equity Research.

Mitchell also stated that he's expecting Grand Theft Auto V to be released in the 2011 financial year, and there's also the possibility of a new GTA title for the PlayStation 2 next year.

"Coming out of E3 there was no commitment to a new Grand Theft Auto, and I think that's because of Rockstar's track record with delivering on time," said Mitchell.

"Of the three, I'm least confident in saying for sure there will be a new GTA for PlayStation 2, but the track record shows that PSP titles have been repositioned [on PS2]," he said, referring to the recent announcement...
