Should we expect an early release?

8 replies 265 views Edited Nov 9, 2012

In the case of LBP Vita the game went gold several weeks ahead of schedule (either two or three ... not sure) any who Sony actually gave the go ahead a few weeks early and it's street date was broken by over a week. I know certain copies of the game have already been released to the public (certain youtubers have their copy in hand and are doing unboxings). 

Do you think there could be an early release?

Unlikely. Most games go gold around this time before the release of the game. They need time to distribute the game and to time their advertising campaign appropiately.

Maybe when retailers get it, but if it just went gold it'll be at least a week

It's less than two weeks I don't think so.

Oh well doesn't hurt to ask I guess. LBP Vita must have been the exception. I was surprised though such an AMAZING game and it arrived way earlier then I expected.

Same here, it felt very special just happening to walk into gamestop and seeing the game there.Ironically that day I was going to pay off the pre-order the game so I was like uhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...Even the store clerk didnt know it was really there..It almost felt like a dream.

I think a few retailers had already broken the street date on LBPV and Sony just said "**bleep** it, let em have it". Direct quote from them btw. Seriously though, I do remember hearing that's what happened, sans the Sony quote.
