The LittleBigPlanet servers are down today between the hours of 8:00AM to 5:00PM GMT (12:00AM to 9:00AM PST). During the downtime, the online areas of LittleBigPlanet will be unavailable – this includes playing community levels, your LittleBigPlanet profile and the ability to publish new levels. The downtime will not affect offline play so you can still enjoy the game or create some new levels for when the servers go back up.
Official SCEE Statement:
"Hello everyone. Please note that the LittleBigPlanet online servers will be down for essential maintenance on Thursday November 6th between 8am and 5pm GMT. During this period the offline game will be unaffected as we work to improve online performance. So keep playing or creating and we?ll have some shiny new servers ready for when we get back."
LittleBigPlanet is now available to purchase in North America and Europe, after a two week delay. If you were unlucky enough not to have taken part in the public beta, check out some reviews at Test Freaks.
