LittleBigPlanet Weekly Download Update – Santa Edition

Mark Valledor's Avatar + Posted by Mark Valledor on Dec 10, 2008 // Marketing Manager, SCEA

To help spread a little holiday cheer all the LittleBigPlanet players out there, we are giving a new Santa Outfit on the PlayStation Store starting tomorrow! Now all you LBP fans out there can jingle your way through the holidays in style. The suit will be given away across two release waves over the next couple of weeks.

LittleBigPlanet Add On- Santa Pants Costume_thumb_US

The fun start tomorrow (12/11/08), where we will be giving the Santa coat and a set of trousers for all you SackBoys and SackGirls.

LBP Santa

And next week on 12/18/08, you can complete your outfit with a Santa hat and beard that will be available for FREE as well! (But note, the outfit will only be available till January 8th so be sure to download it before then!)

With this outfit on top of the cool Street Fighter gear we just released, Sack people will certainly be fitted. But the holiday cheer doesn’t end here. For those festive fanatics who are definitely feeling very merry and bright, we have more “in store” for you throughout the rest of the month. So, continue checking back in for updates on upcoming LBP DLC!

On a different note, we are teaming up with our friends from IFC (Independent Film Channel) for a “Play. Create. Share. Short film challenge”!

Visit the LittleBigWorkshop for more details!

I can’t belive how come LBP isn’t selling as well… :( I did my part, but I can’t understand why everyone can’t see that this game rules!

The game isn’t selling yet, for the reason of the season. If i’m not the only gamer doing this, get most of the games you want the most for Xmas; i’m just making sure once i get the game all my friends will have it as well or should have it….. :)

Guess I’ll just wait until next week and download both at the same time. Why are you guy’s splitting up the outfit? Have you guys ever thought about doing something with say Marvel comics? I’d love to have a Wolverine sackboy or Captain America or Iron Man sackboys. lol Just a thought since there is a Wolverine movie coming out next year.

Thanks Mark, appreciated.

+ StalkingSilence on December 10th, 2008 at 1:30 pm said:

Part of me has to wonder why you are splitting up the content? Is it so you can say that “X” number of items have been downloaded off the PSN? It would make it seem like more e-commerce is going on. And it’s fun for the users to have limited release stuff, so good for everyone. But – I’m curious if there was more to it than that.

After all, I don’t want people to start releasing DLC like this for other games – e.g., download the new SingStar songs where you’ll get the first half of the song this week and the second half next week! Collector’s item!!

+ WHAT on December 10th, 2008 at 1:36 pm said:

@ #2
How do you know?

GameStop will offer you $30 for the game. Every game this holiday has been cut to $25 and under except this title. Games that don’t sell well don’t get that type of dollar return especially after a month. If a game has a high trade-in value you might get a revolving door effect.

+ Thwip on December 10th, 2008 at 1:40 pm said:

@16

Likely they have them split up to ensure they get you back on the PSN Store the following week.

Thanx for the “Free” DLC!

Nice, I wish we could have some reindeer antlers though. That would be pretty cool. And for New Years, some 2009 glasses and a party cone hat would be cool.

Thank you MM!

Will you guys ever add IN-GAME XMB MUSIC as an option? I play LBP so much even though it has great music I wish we could LISTEN to our own music… Please…

I notice there’s a bit of a rosy blush to the cheeks– will this be part of the beard update, or is it just some photoshopping that won’t be available in the release candidate?

Media Molecule.

Please fix the glitch with the constantly dying sackboy. I did it on accident and would hate to have to replay the whole game, not that I don’t like it.

Here’s a link to the LBP forum topic. (4th one down)

http://forums.littlebigworkshop.com/lbp/board/message?board.id=creationgen&thread.id=47&view=by_date_ascending&page=1

And if for some reason you can’t fix it, PLEASE respond or PM me so I can know.

You should have sackboy costumes for the team that whens the NBA finals this next year and the Superbowl. Other sports too. That would be sweet!

+ Enforcer_X on December 10th, 2008 at 3:11 pm said:

Why on earth would this get split up?
Is it to make us come back to the PSN Store in the hopes of some impulse buys?

Can we have the whole thing tomorrow if we pay? I will totally pay $1.99 to have it all tomorrow.

+ Debo2U on December 10th, 2008 at 3:24 pm said:

Sweet.
I love LBP.
I wish Home and every other game was like LBP.
Or should I say, does some of the cool things LBP does. Like show not just the name of the game I’m playing but also the level. Or my favorite feature, the use of other PSN IDs together in one game.
Anyway, Happy holidays

Are you guys trying to beef up Sony’s download numbers? I like the costume and all, but splitting one costume up into 2 downloads seems kind of silly. I’m sure the hat and beard are complicated to design, but really…
