From PS3 Attitude: "Talking at GameCity in Nottingham today, Alex Evans was asked about the lack of image import in LittleBigPlanet.
The news? He confirmed that this was only pulled from the release of the game because of time constraints, and that the image import tool would be released by Christmas.
For those (many) people that were upset to hear that the PlayStation Eye was going to be the only image import option this will indeed be (completely non-religious) music to their ears.
We'll have more news from GameCity soon, so keep checking back..."
