LOS ANGELES--At Sony's press briefing, Killzone 3 was dated for February 2011, and earlier in the day, Amazon France listed Uncharted 3 for October 2011. While the latter's release window is merely a retailer's presumption, another Sony-exclusive received an official release window today.

Sony today announced a barrage of titles that will support the company's newest tech, the PlayStation Move and their respective release dates. On that list was Little Big Planet 2, confirmed for a November 2010 debut at retail.

As for the game, at Sony's briefing yesterday, Media Molecule's Alex Evans emerged on stage and demonstrated Little Big Planet 2, the studio's sequel to the critically adored original.

The studio head talked about the new tools Sackboy has learned in the sequel. He spoke about the ethos of Play, Create, and Share and went over some of the title's new creation tools, including the ability to make games (within the game) of any genre.

The original Little Big Planet has sold over 3 million copies to date. Sony Computer Entertainment American vice president Scott Rohde confirmed to GameSpot that it too will support the Move controller when the system arrives November 4. The game will receive the update in the form of a software update.
