Mark Valledor's Avatar + Posted by Mark Valledor on Dec 16, 2008 // Marketing Manager, SCEA

First we introduced an array of costumes for Sackboy, now the PS Store is pleased to introduce exciting new LBP ‘Level Packs’ to fill your Pop-it with more themed creative items. Our level packs are filled with several new items including new costumes, cool objects, decorative items and numerous stickers all for you to enjoy creating new levels – all for just $2.99.

Check the store this Thursday and get your hands on our first one: Festive Level Pack (includes):

  • Two new Costumes – Christmas Tree headpiece and a Wrapped Sackboy.
  • TreeFrontGiftBoyFront

  • One new Create Material = Wrapping Paper (cardboard w/ giftwrap texture).
  • Two new Objects = A Festive Sleigh and holiday themed light.
  • Six new Decorations = A Festive Bauble, Bell, Wrapping Bow, Candy Cane, Card and Stocking.
  • A ton of new Stickers = holiday themed of course, including a Red Nose Reindeer, Elves, Turkey images and many more.
  • …and a partridge in a pear tree (j/k)

This is just the first Level Pack — but with the holidays only around for a few more weeks, the Festive Level Pack is only available for a limited time and will be removed from the store after January 8, 2009. Remember, there will be more to come, so continue to check back here again to see what is “in-store” for you.

Ohh I was thinking “level packs” were going to be new developer levels. This is cool too though, definitly worth the $2.99 download.

Mm! and Sony will receive my money when there’s a DLC involving new playable levels/story/expansion for the Single Player LBP experience.

+ StupidityTries on December 16th, 2008 at 11:00 am said:

So is this another level to play through, or just a $2.99 rummage-sale of stickers and stuff?


13

+ hesido on December 16th, 2008 at 11:01 am said:

This is good, but I cannot even download free DLC, let alone buy stuff for LBP. I live in Turkey, and we have no PSN store. I have a home in NY next to a Pizza shop ( :-P ) so I also have US account, but since all my trophies are in my Turkish account, the costumes and DLC mean not much a thing, since the DLC is account AND region-locked.

So why not allow LittleBigPresents? I can buy the DLC when I go to NY, and I can present it to my Turkish account. The DLC item is removed from my US account, and you’ll be happy, as you’ll be making money: This will also be good for people who imported their games!!! I mean, come on.. If someone has imported an asia version, they could buy stuff from their asian store, and “present” it to their main account..

Please implement this either in a patch, or LBP2..

Sweet!
Can’t wait to play!
$2.99 are you guys serious?

This is a GREAT deal guys THANKS SO MUCH!
Love the tree that’s cute!

Thanks Mark, great idea !

@13
Yeah for Sony being a global company they really should do something for ALL the PS fans worldwide.

I wish SCEA could do something but I am guessing it’s out of their hands.

$2.99.

Seriously? It should be free.

+ Adamalicious on December 16th, 2008 at 11:10 am said:

“Level pack” really does sound like it includes levels – which would have been cool. Create mode is awesome, but I just don’t have the time. More levels from the developers would be great.

$3 some Christmas spirit you have sony.

+ Scodo_Thope on December 16th, 2008 at 11:19 am said:

Awesome stuff. A little pricey but cool stuff.

Question: Why has my level, “O’ Christmas Tree”, not received any plays for over a month. I mean, it is no 5 star, but once it got to 23 plays, no more.

Can I be so far lost in the hundreds of thousands of levels that no one else has played for over a month? Just wondering; seems strange this being the season.

Thanks!

:P

You’re making us pay even at christmas? lol that’s funny.

People want levels? There are thousands of them available for free.

+ SuperDuckWC on December 16th, 2008 at 11:26 am said:

2,99$…nice shot! Finally you listen to us about the increadible price for costume…so here one whole pack… I’ll get it for sure!


24

+ Bildo818 on December 16th, 2008 at 11:27 am said:

Although new levels would be sweet, I’d rather see this kind of packaged DLC. I mean come on, 2 costumes, 6 decos, 1 material and some stickers? That is sweet. Better than 2 bucks for 1 costume


25

+ minestrone11 on December 16th, 2008 at 11:27 am said:

Are you guys really complaining about $3? That’s the price of a double cheeseburger, fries, and a coke.


26

+ BigRon3400 on December 16th, 2008 at 11:28 am said:

All that for 2.99? Now we’re talking! I’ll buy that. Still not paying 5.99 for those Street Fighter outfits though.

Should be free!


32

+ Redswipe on December 16th, 2008 at 11:42 am said:

Its cool getting these holliday theamed items but it would be nice to get them a bit earlier in future so we have time to get the stuff into our levels for the holiday.


33

+ mywhitenoise on December 16th, 2008 at 11:51 am said:

It’s a better price than what you’ve been charging for the costumes, but I still think it should be a little cheaper. Maybe $2.

This game isn’t selling the way it should be selling, and it would help boost sales with more free content, and cheaper DLC.


34

+ kmac0378 on December 16th, 2008 at 11:52 am said:

MM – As an owner of LBP who has been very vocal about the cost of DLC from your camp, I’ll be the first to admit (well, maybe the 20-something based on comments already) that this is the right path for DLC. Bundling goodies and costumes together is a GREAT idea and the price of $3 is perfect.

That said, I probably won’t download this because I just don’t have time for level creation. It’s like learning Photoshop or Flash all over again. Way too complex for what little time I have to play games. i really want to learn how to create levels, and it’s probably why I’m hanging onto the game. Maybe I’ll have some more time during the downtime of the holidays.

All that said, keep rolling with this direction. I think the game has so much potential and charging less for more little things like stickers, themes, costumes, is the way to go in my humble opinion.

I’ll bite. But it’d be nice if Hong Kong didn’t break the street date on this (it’s been on their PSN website for a couple days).

I’m pretty excited about more objects, more stickers, etc. Will we ever get… more tools for CREATE?


36

+ drdre74 on December 16th, 2008 at 11:53 am said:

Hmm so no single player Levels then? dang I was thinking it was going to be all new built levels for us to play not stuff to make levels. Oh well.


37

+ StalkingSilence on December 16th, 2008 at 11:56 am said:

Will you be able to play levels that include these assets if you don’t have them yourself? Seems like that would cause the level to run VERY slowly as it would have to load the new models and art before playing.


38

+ AceOfSpades725 on December 16th, 2008 at 11:57 am said:

aww i thought this meant it was levels to play not make lol well it still seems cool though i like how sackboy all wrapped up!

+ rAdIOhEaD73 on December 16th, 2008 at 11:57 am said:

This levels packs are a very good idea, I would also love to see more original levels created by the MM team, don’t get me wrong some of the user-made levels are fantastic, but I really liked the levels created by MM.

how festive of you guys to do this! this kind of stuff puts me right into the holiday spirit. back to my xmas shopping.

peace,

+ InfinitiProject on December 16th, 2008 at 12:08 pm said:

Is it just me or is every costume that makes its way to the PS Store makes you just want to buy them? I usually don’t do this but these costumes are sweet and will continue to buy every one of them! :D


42

+ BrianC6234 on December 16th, 2008 at 12:08 pm said:

I can’t believe people who are complaining about paying $2.99 for this. Media Molecule has to bring in some money besides from the main game. If you expect them to just do all of it for free they’ll probably have to stop making anything for LBP and move on to the next game.


43

+ Tigerriot on December 16th, 2008 at 12:13 pm said:

Please don’t call this a “level pack”. It gives everyone the wrong idea.

I real “level pack” to most people would be a pack of new levels designed by Media Molecule.


44

+ scorpio on December 16th, 2008 at 12:15 pm said:

This is a great idea and the price is just about right. I to dont have time for level creations but may play around with these xmas items.

Will be picking this up…


45

+ StalkingSilence on December 16th, 2008 at 12:25 pm said:

I agree with Tigerriot (#43),
These should be called “Construction Packs” like PS3Fanboy called them. Or “Create Packs” or something. Level packs is confusing.


46

+ Letters2Kay on December 16th, 2008 at 12:26 pm said:

Awesome, MM- I can’t wait to see what else you’re going to give us! Bring on the paid DLC, I just want to see a little less holiday themed stuff and more content and “level packs” based on new themes that will be applicable year-round in the future, please… :)


47

+ Jedi_webslinger on December 16th, 2008 at 12:26 pm said:

This is cool!!! Thank you Sony and MM. Should have put the Grinch costume so i could try to steal Christmas ;)

Glad to see some more Christmas Content! Congrats on the Studio of the year and the Best PS3 Game of the year as well! Wish you would have made some “Halloween Pack” though, that would have been fun!
