What Games Are Releasing Alongside Little Big Planet?
If you own a PlayStation 3, there’s a good chance you were ready to buy Little Big Planet this Tuesday. But after the unfortunate delay we learned of earlier today, come next week, you’ll be walking home from the videogame retailer of your choice with one less game than you were planning.
Had the game come out this Tuesday as expected, it would’ve faced some stiff competition — although it seems unlikely that the inevitably huge sales of LBP would have taken much of a hit (and, if anything, these other games should be sighing with relief). With that in mind, here’s what big releases remain for you to come home with next week:
- Far Cry 2 (PC, 360, PS3)
- Fable 2 (360)
- Rock Band 2 (PS3)
- Wii Music (Wii)
- BioShock (PS3)
- Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (DS)
- Spider-Man: Web of Shadows (PC, 360, PS3, PSP, DS, Wii, PS2)
- Eternal Sonata (PS3)
- Midnight Club: Los Angeles (360, PS3)
If you also happened to come home with a copy of Petz Rescue: Wildlife Vet for Wii, I wouldn’t have judged you. That might not be entirely true, but what is true is that, with Little Big Planet now scheduled for release on October 27 (although with stingy retailers, that likely means Tuesday, October 28), gamers with multiple consoles are looking at another hard week on the wallet. Here’s what you might be picking up along with your copy of LBP:
- Fallout 3 (PC, 360, PS3)
- Guitar Hero World Tour (PC, 360, PS3, Wii, PS2)
- MotorStorm Pacific Rift (PS3)
- Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 (PC)
- SingStar: Vol. 2 (PS3)
- MotoGP 08 (PC, 360, PS3, PSP, Wii, PS2)
- Scene It Box Office Smash (360)
It’s truly going to be one of the most wallet-busting stretches in gaming history over the course of the next several weeks. We should probably be thankful there aren’t any new consoles releasing — unless you plan on picking up the new PSP 3000s or importing a DSi next month.And — tempted as you might be — selling an arm on the black market isn’t as great an idea as it might seem. If nothing else, it’ll make playing that shiny new game of yours much more difficult.
