LBP out in UK on 5th November

Sony probably not enjoying today.

Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, Sony has clarified that LittleBigPlanet will be released in the UK on 5th November.

This follows a statement issued earlier claiming the delayed title would launch in Europe no later than the week beginning 3rd November.

LittleBigPlanet had been scheduled to launch this Friday, 24th October, but was called back because testers found references to the Qur'an in one of the background tracks.

Developer Media Molecule has admitted being "shellshocked and gutted" by the discovery and subsequent code call-back.

Copies already in the hands of punters are said to be selling for an arm and a leg on eBay. That's about a hundred quid.
