: The LittleBigPlanet servers are now up and running once again.
It appears that even with the last minute delay they still could not get the servers working properly. It may have helped detect the problem if the BETA had been open to more people or if they released a demo to PSN a couple of weeks prior to official release.
To quote: As is the case with many online-integrated games these days, the LittleBigPlanet servers appear to have imploded by the weight of a large influx of gamers trying to play, create and share.
According to Media Molecule
, "the servers are down while we try to fix the glitching issues some players have experienced. They will be back online as soon as we have fixed the problem."
While many are eager to jump online, let's not forget that these kind of issues are sadly common during the first few weeks of a product launch. (Examples: SOCOM, Metal Gear Online, GTA IV) Hopefully, it won't be too long until things are sorted out.
