Mark Valledor's Avatar + Posted by Mark Valledor on Oct 30, 2008 // Marketing Manager, SCEA

Now that the fans around the world will have copies of LittleBigPlanet next week, we wanted to celebrate the global launch and give you a heads up on the downloadable content you can expect to see in the near future…
—————

First, we know we’ve had a bumpy release, and for your patience, we’re releasing a handful of free downloadable content on the PlayStation Store (starting 11/6)

  • “Launch” Spacesuit ***
  • Halloween Mask***
  • *** Only available from 11/6 to 11/19

    Halloween Mask Spacesuit

    ————-

    In addition to the ‘fan appreciation gifts’ mentioned above, we wanted to share an overview of the types of DLC headed your way. Check back here every Wednesday to see what new DLC will be available on the PlayStation Store the next day…

    One category of downloads will be, no surprise, SackBoy costumes. You’ve already seen a few of our pre-order announcements and partnerships with PlayStation Alumni, but this is only a snippet of available downloads to come. We’re hard at work to provide weekly downloads to keep the community fresh and active. Here are a few items we have in store for you down the line…

      Seasonal & Limited Time Only Costumes – FREE
      The “launch” SpaceSuit and Halloween mask is a perfect example of this. These types of items will be available for a short amount of time only so look for these around special events and holidays.

      LBP space man pumpkin

      Community Costumes – FREE
      Remember LittleBigChallenge 003? We’re finalizing the winners now, so stay tuned. These will be available for free and over time, you’ll see more and more of these types of free downloads for LBP community.

      SackBoy Costumes – $0.99 each
      Continue to customize your SackBoy/SackGirl with brand new outfits that will be available in a variety of themes and designs. Here’s a sneak peek of a few costumes in the works…

      frog gorilla

      Premium SackBoy Costumes – $1.99 each
      Its no secret, that we love the rest of the PlayStation family and we want the SackPeople to be able to dress up as their favorite characters. Stay tuned for more announcements with new costumes from our PlayStation family and even some outside the family… Here’s a few of the ones we’ve already announced…

      Sackboy Sephiroth! Sackboy Solid Snake and Sackboy Sephiroth

      RARE SackBoy Costumes – $?.??
      In time, we’re hoping to introduce very rare items that are both only available for a certain amount of time and extremely collectible. We’ve previously announced the such an item, the “RARE Mm T-shirt”, but in North America, we’re waiting for the right time to introduce into the PS Store. Stay tuned…

      LBP tshirt

      Basic SackBoy Costume Bundle – $2.99
      At times, we’ll offer four basic costumes at a great price…to make things easier for the ‘must collect everything I see’ personalities

      Premium SackBoy Costume Bundle – $5.99
      Similar to the Basic SackBoy Costume Bundle, this premium version consists of four premium costumes for the price of three. All characters in premium bundles will revolve around a certain theme…more info to come in the near future.

    Stay tuned in a few weeks when we introduce a few more types of LBP DLC that will not only enhance your SackBoy, but expand your Pop-it tool with more objects, materials, stickers, sounds, music and even gameplay enhancements to keep the community refreshed with more creative options.

    I’ve had this preordered (the only game I’ve EVER pre ordered and I’ve been gaming for 32 years!) at Amazon.ca since Sept 27…they haven’t shipped yet and are estimating shipping dates 1 to 4 weeks into the future.

    SONY … get Amazon.ca their stock now!

    Nice, but when are you gonna fix the servers? They went up with a new patch last night (which has yet to be detailed on any site, even news sites are reporting that they *think* it’s a stability patch, and then about 3 hours ago, the servers went down again. I was able to play online for about 6 hours total since I bought the game. It’s frustrating to say the least.

    Especially when I was one of the beta testers and have a level out there that has been getting played, I’d like to keep up on how many people are playing it and read the comments for feedback, but alas, I cannot, the servers are down. The costume thing you guys are doing is great, don’t get me wrong, but you need to publicly address where you are on your online woes. Thanks.

    These are up on the Japanese store, how come we don’t at least get the Halloween costume BEFORE Halloween >_>?

    Anyway, this is more of less what I expected in terms of DLC for LBP, thanks for the heads up and please keep the community informed as you have been.

    + mywhitenoise on October 30th, 2008 at 2:14 pm said:

    The pricing scheme really sucks. No costume should be over $1. In fact, you should sell bundles of 3 for $1.

    I’m kind of disappointed in you guys for taking this greedy route.


    14

    + Foxx on October 30th, 2008 at 2:14 pm said:

    Sweet… some great costumes coming up! Pricing seems to be fair although I am hoping along with the characters you include a special level made for that character or themed to a particular game. It’d be awesome and a very good price to buy the Old Snake costume but also get a level themed MGS that includes some stickers or possibly an item like the Metal Gear.

    Also wasn’t there another shirt that I remember you guys talking about that says we were there Week 1? (Other than the space suit that is)

    Keep up the great work and thanks for a truly phenomenal game!

    You know I am still trying to understand why exactly other regions got this today? The spacesuit and halloween costume’s are both finished and being downloaded in places like JAPAN and Korea, Taiwan..etc.. Why then do we have to wait in NA for another week for what is already available from SONY PlayStation in other regions?? Can you answer this please? Sir?

    + kspraydad on October 30th, 2008 at 2:19 pm said:

    @13…

    Since the costumes have ZERO affect on game play and are PURELY a VANITY purchase I think MM should charge what the market will allow.

    Does you state sell VANITY plates without a premium?

    I think you have stumbled on the gold mine here. I may end up spending more for the extras than I did for the actual game. As a former Pokemaniac in my youth, I gotta catch them all!

    Hey Mark,
    Nice to hear from you again. I’ll be picking up LBP today and have been hearing there are issues with the servers for the game. When will these issues be ironed out and when will SCEA ramp up the TV ad campaign for LBP?

    I’d like to see you cut deals with 3rd party developers to offer a Sackboy costume upon release of their game…only available for a week and only if you have a save file from said game on your drive.

    At that price I’m going to pass. A few game character outfits would be nice, but spending that much for a handful of outfits just isn’t worth it.

    And wasn’t that black and pink shirt originally going to be free along with the space suit?

    @13, agree with 19.

    “they” whoever is selling the costumes, can sell for whatever they want. As 19 said, what the market bears.

    However, if levels or creation tools follow this payment model, I can’t say I agree.

    Great, but I feel the price is too high on the Premium costumes, $1 should be the price. And give us a chance in Mexico to have the Kratos and Nariko costumes please


    38

    + LincolnStein on October 30th, 2008 at 2:29 pm said:

    The price is too expensive for just a costume. Lower them prices!

    Also, you need to address the community about the server issues. We will respect you more for it…instead of you shyly (sp?) admitting you have issues.

    tell us what is going on!

    BTW: my wife and I are huge fans and thoroughly enjoyed the beta and have been loving the offline levels. But have not been able to connect once to the online side.

    what about the exclusive WEEK ONE T-Shirt that is available for purchase along with the other two free items that you mentioned?? Why is this exlusive Week 1 shirt not being sold HERE in the US. Can you tell us what DLC will be in the store this week. Mm’s message on the message board in-game states to head over to the PSN store to pickup exlusive DLC for littlebigplanet!

    So what is the exclusive content this week? if we are not getting the Halloween costume(the day before Halloween) and the space suit which was posted about and said to be available the first week of the games release!?! Can you respond to someone’s question(if not my own) regarding some of the negative things that have plagued this games launch so far in the US. I am sick and tired of PR people hiding under their desks when things aren’t going well (waiting for the server guys to give them the all clear) before their is ever anything of substance that is even spoken of! Someone already mentioned the costumes have nothing to do with the games functionality so how about some updates on the SERVERS!!

    I have to say I am disappointed in the pricing. I figured as much from sony… but still hoped that these little additions would be free. After all, WE are providing the additional levels which will help push more sells. Yeah $1 isnt that much but you dont see sony jumping like crazy to pay us a $1 for every level we create. Not to mention the 1st week “I was there” costumes have proved to be a joke, now the “sometime between the first – third week unless you lived in Japan where its the first week costume”. Well more and more I am expecting these blunders from playstation products. Best console I ever owned, worst game deliver I have ever seen! If were lucky we might be able to get into a BETA this year for something that should have released last year… if were lucky…
