My UK version of Little Big Planet 2 arrived today, making way for my item transfer from the first game to the second.
Originally, I've got the U.S. "Collector's Edition" of Little Big Planet 2, but the item transfer does not function from PAL to NTSC and vice versa. Both versions will make a nice addition to my collection, until I've collected all (or most of) the trophies from the U.S. version.
For anyone torn between the two versions, I would suggest the U.S. version if you are in the UK and haven't yet played or own the first game. As for those in the U.S, I envy the fact the Collector's Edition with the extras (plushie / book ends) was released in the U.S. and not here.
