LittleBigPlanet 2 in November

According to SCEA release list.

Sony America has said that LittleBigPlanet 2 will be released in November, while the Move patch for Heavy Rain is due in October.

That's according to a list of titles compatible with PlayStation Move dug up by VG247, which also indicates that the new Sly Collection is due in November.

Sony showed off LittleBigPlanet 2 during its E3 press conference yesterday evening, but didn't announce a release date.

As you'll know if you read our big old LittleBigPlanet 2 preview, the sequel to Sony's favourite Play Create Share title expands the scope to encompass other genres besides platforming.

Thanks to several innovations it will be possible to create puzzle games, racing games and even strategy games providing you can coax the mechanics out of the expanded and refined creation tools.

During the Sony conference Alex Evans of developer Media Molecule hosted an on-stage demo of several examples cooked up by favoured community developers, including an addictive-looking button-matching multiplayer puzzle game and a top-down racer.

Check out our interview with Media Molecule's Mark Healey below to learn more about how the game works and what to expect in November.
