The LittleBigPlanet demo originally planned for the end of this year will not be released in 2007. Gutting...
Speaking to MTV's Multiplayer blog, SCEA's senior PR manager Ron Eagle said, "I can officially confirm that there won't be a demo this year," noting that we won't see any more of the awesome PS3 game before next month.
Apparently though, Eagle's played 30 of the game's 50 planned dev-made levels and he says the adorable platformer-come-world-editor is a lot of fun.

It's been quiet on the LittleBigPlanet front lately, much to our despair, but we finally have some new footage of a new level in the awesome-looking physics-based platformer.
It's a pirate ship sailing through a new scrolling platform level, showing off more of the game's brilliant physics. It's quite a basic level, but it's the charm of it - look into the background and you can see the waves are created by planks of water-like wood stuck to spinning wheels.
What's impressive is

Details on the storyline for the LEGO Batman game along with info on playable characters has materialised in the wake of the first teaser trailer hitting the 'net.
Obviously you slip into the Caped Crusader's boots - and sidekick Robin's - and crime-bust in what we're promised is an "interactive" LEGO Gotham City (whatever that means), but Warner Bros. has whispered in our shell-like ears that players will additionally get to control villains in the

The first official teaser trailer has appeared online for LEGO Batman.
The second LEGO tie-in from the studio (and with LEGO Indiana Jones on the way) carries the same old PR tag-line, with TT hoping to take both franchises "and make something unique."
Well Star Wars wasn't all that original, but it was certainly bloody good fun (and you can get the missus to play it as well).
So far we know pretty much bugger all about Batman, but we reckon it's safe to assume Robin, The Joker

Nintendo president Reggie Fils-Aime always comes across as confident of Nintendo's ability to kick ass in the current generation console war, but even he's not too proud to admit that the competition has been up to some cool stuff lately.
The uncannily Nintendo-like LittleBigPlanet was the first game that came to mind when Fils-Aime was asked which titles on other platforms he thinks would be interesting in Wii.
"I've been very intrigued with LittleBigPlanet," he says, before

Here we have first screenshots from the PS3 version of Lost Planet, which is due to release in early 2008.
For anyone new to the Lost Planet party, the game's an all-out-action third-person blaster that finds you battling aliens and other enemies in harsh environments.
16-player online multiplayer support accompanies the main single-player campaign, and the PS3 version will come with download content released for the original Xbox 360 outing in addition to multiplayer character

Factor 5's Lair may have had a tough time in front of the critics upon release in the US (OPM said the game "is marked by a crippling inconsistency, and not just in its use of motion-sensitive controls" - ouch) but that hasn't stopped the magic dragon from going straight into the Japanese top ten.
Latest figures from Japan reveal that Lair went into the charts at number seven, after notching up sales of just over 20k.
How long it stays there is anyone's guess. November 9 is the

We know what you're going to say. "I've not forgotten about Rockstar's Team Bondi-developed film noire detective adventure that was revealed in confusingly vague terms as long ago as October 2006, no doubt promising to surprise us with an unpredictable gameplay dynamic," before you frown and wonder, actually, what that unpredictable gameplay dynamic might be. Well, it turns out it might not be so unpredictable after all.
Because, in fact, LA Noire will be a free-roaming action

It's a bit early to start proclaiming that "Microsoft wins Japan!" or the like (though that was our knee-jerk headline of choice) but we're still gobsmacked at the news that Halo 3 has taken first place in last week's Japanese sales charts, beating a Pokemon DS game into the bargain.
Bungie's 360-powered threequel managed to shift 59,000 copies in Japan, four thousand more than Pokemon's Mysterious Dungeon: Toki on Nintendo DS. And this in a land where FPS games traditionally fail
