I think the recall is a bigger deal in Europe than it is in the US.
Here's hoping that Best Buy has them when I swing by tomorrow.

Don't get your hopes up too high, as many retailers are in fact sending back the old pressings and waiting for the new ones - it'll be a crap-shoot.

I just got a new update from Best Buy saying December 30 of this year now. I'm hoping to go down there tomorrow and be able to pick it up. Gamestop told me two weeks. I'm also gonna check out Blockbuster and Kmart, see what I can find.

The big kicker however, is that there is a built in editor and you can design in great detail your own levels. Once done you can share them with the online community. It looks to be pretty amazing.

Thanks, C-Mart. I am all about plugging my PS3 in, so I willl give this a shot.

If you don't totally get it right away, keep playing. The first "world" is fine, but it doesn't really kick in until the second, and it just keeps blowing up after that. Likewise, when you first dive into the editor, it doesn't seem like much but once you've spent an hour or two in it, you really start getting an idea of just what's possible.

I wish I could look elsewhere... but I've got BB gift cards for this, and can't get it otherwise... at least not tomorrow.

I used gift cards as well and so ultimately want to get it from BB, but I'm gonna be on the lookout tomorrow as I pass by a couple of places. BB did just send me a new update saying I could pick it up from the store on or around 10/28.

so, if I am able to get a copy tomorrow, it will still be 100% compatible with the PSN and I will still be able to enjoy the game to its absolute fullest... correct? All that is wrong with it is a lyric that I am not going to be able to understand anyway...right?

I think there is a patch for people who already have the game.

I believe it eliminates the song (well makes it so it never plays). I assume the PSN is like Xbox Live in that you won't be able to play LBP online without d/l the patch.

Gotcha, so itll just prompt me to download the update before hand? Simple enough.

No luck @ Target (they told me it was an online-only item, but when I went online it isn't even on the site).

Wal-Mart was a no as well .. said they didn't get them. website now shows 11/11 release date.

By the time I got to Wal-Mart they had already pulled them from the case and told me the sale was "blocked by the home office". They didn't know why, but couldn't sell them. I saw 8-10 of them behind the counter

You probably bought from a guy who sells things that he doesn't even have on hand yet. I dislike that very much.

Yeah, my eBay copy arrived yesterday as well. Most of the listings said "pre-order" - I made sure to order one that specified that the seller actually had the game in hand.

Interesting bits about the song being removed:

The guy who made the song is a Muslim and sees nothing wrong with putting Koran quotes in music: http://kotaku.com/5066316/man-behind...e-quite-normal

Also, an Islamic non-profit group is calling the recall "censorship": http://kotaku.com/5066218/islamic-gr...-on-lbp-recall

Sounds like Sony may have panicked and overreacted with this recall.

Same here. They had ten copied just sitting there behind the glass case. They rung it up and it was locked out

Another one denied at Walmart. I have one on my way to work so I figured I'd pop by. No biggie - I've got RB2 to catch up on plus SR2 to start.

I have to imagine if it pops up on one Wal-mart computer it likely will across the nation. No sense bothering there.

I may as well not even check Best Buy at lunch then - if Wal-Mart won't sell it, there's no way BB would. Grrr.

Yeah, your best bet is smaller, independent stores, or places that don't specialize in games - maybe Sears or K-mart? Hopefully they aren't clued-in enough to know about the recall.
