Sony explains Sackboy toy shortages

Production held up until launch.

Sony has explained to Eurogamer that there has been a slight production hiccup with the Sackboy toys, meaning they won't be shipped in time to be sent with pre-ordered copies of LittleBigPlanet.

Instead, retailers will offer t-shirts to early adopters of the game.

But reports of copyright problems are untrue; the toys will still arrive, either at or just after the game's launch on 24th October.

All of this, incidentally, has had no effect on the Eurogamer LittleBigPlanet competition, which lets you design a level for the full game and offers heaps of prizes including a PS3 and those Sackboy toys.

The winning level will be playable at the Eurogamer Expo, which stars LittleBigPlanet among other Christmas blockbusters.

We've decided to go, and so should you! If you like that sort of thing.
