Sony have finally made an official blog post about the broken LittleBigPlanet PS Vita downloads, which they say only affected a “small number of people” but as far as we’re aware it was actually everybody that tried. At least that was our impression.
“This was due to a problem with the original game file that had been uploaded to the store,” said SCEE’s Nick Caplin today. “The glitch was fixed as soon as we learnt about it and we’d like to confirm that LBP PS Vita is now available for download.”
Over the last day or two, those downloading the game were left with a broken file that wouldn’t start and a wallet thirty quid lighter, as we reported back on Wednesday.
Sony are trying to get people refunded, at which point they can try the download again. “The plan is that those affected will be refunded and then they’ll be able to re-download it,” said Caplin in the comments. “We’re working on getting the refund to those affected ASAP.”
If you bought the game and it didn’t work, expect an email “later today”.
The download’s perfectly fine now, and of course the game runs just peachy off a cart. We scored the game, which is rather brilliant, a solid 8/10 in our review a little while back.
