Stephen Totilo of MTV Multiplayer writes:
"One of the wonderful trends of this fall for reporters has been the proliferation of games that have been completed and sent out well before their release date.
Usually I can't hope to receive a boxed copy of a new game more than a week prior to it hitting store shelves. But so far I've received "Star Wars: The Force Unleashed," "Fracture," "Dead Space," and, today, October 21's "Little Big Planet" all in their store-ready shrink-wrapped boxes well before their release dates.
I have a few tidbits to share based on the box and the manual, but, first, do I think this fall trend is good because I can brag about having the game before you?"
