Santa can go check his own list. I?ve been busy checking one of mine: the games I thought were coming out in 2007 but haven?t shown up yet.

Topping that list is a demo of ?Little Big Planet,? the make-your-own levels side-scroller Sony used to steal the show at the Game Developer?s Conference back in March.

And if you have a long memory like me, you may recall that Sony?s official announcement for the game ?slated? a demo for release ?this fall.? The full game would come out in 2008.

People?s frothing demand for this game is well-documented. And successful demos of the game at E3 and Tokyo Game Show led me to think it?s demo still might squeak out this year, kind of like the Christmas Eve 2006 launch of the downloadable ?Gran Turismo HD Concept? on the PS3.

Alas, there will be no squeaker this year. An ?LBP? demo is not coming in 2007. I found this out this morning at an otherwise impressive demonstration of Sony?s PSP and PS3 software for early 2008 (more on that stuff in later posts).

?I can officially confirm that there won?t be a demo this year,? Ron Eagle, senior manager of PR for Sony Computer Entertainment America told me. But he did say he?s played 30 of the games 50 planned developer-made levels and that it?s a lot of fun. He seemed genuinely pleased about his time with the game, but his company won?t be showing more ?LBP? at least until next month. Eagle could only add that the full game is set for a 2008 release.

And with that, the video game release calendar for 2007 is complete. No more delays. No more surprises. Right?

Sadly no demo, but that doesn't mean a closed beta won't happen... naaaah too much(Y)uot;hope" there Audioboxer. Roll on 2008 (Y)

yeah i kinda expected that. i don't trust release dates on ps3 demos/betas/games at all until i actually see them come out or the discs go gold. 2008 is shaping up to be the "real" launch of the ps3. the amount of levels is good to hear, and this is still one of my top anticipated games for next year.

That is one of the craziest looking games I've ever seen. Definitely a showcase for the PS3. My only concern is how fun it will be to actually "play".
