LittleBigPlanet is not region-locked, OK?

Despite this CVG story apparently confirming that gamers will only be able to download LittleBigPlanet levels specific to their home region, Sony has moved to assure all those frantic with worry that this is, in fact, not the case.

“As many of you may have heard already in an interview at Leipzig the senior producer for LittleBigPlanet announced that the game is region locked,” said SCE developer “Sam,” speaking on the EU PlayStation boards.

“This is in fact not the case, and all shared levels in the game will be available worldwide. The confusion arose out of regional differences in how moderation will work as there are different legal rules each region have to play by, and at one point this looked like it may require the game to be independent in each region – however this has been worked around and there will only be one region for the game…. a LittleBigRegion.”
