Little Delay To LittleBigPlanet Content

Mark Valledor's Avatar Posted by on Jan 22, 2009 // Marketing Manager, SCEA

We know you guys have been looking forward to the next batch of downloadable content which was due to launch this Thursday, January 22. Unfortunately, we’re not going to be able to release what we had planned at this time, so the wait is going to be just a little longer before the new year’s content updates start to arrive. In order to make up for this disappointment, we thought you might like to see all the new content we’ve got lined up to come out between next week and the end of February, so hold on to your hats as there’s quite a bit!

Seasonal Content
To get the new year started in the right way we’ve got matching Sackboy and Sackgirl Chinese New Year outfits which will be available for free next week to help you celebrate the year of the Ox. At the same time you can also dress up as the world famous Groundhog in a bid to predict the length of winter. When February rolls around you’ll have no excuse for forgetting to buy a card as we release a special Valentine’s Day pack containing 12 stickers and some themed costume pieces for your Sackperson. Each of these downloads will be available for a limited time, so grab them while they’re hot!

God of War Costumes and Stickers
If you missed out on the pre-order offers to get hold of Kratos and the God of War content pack here’s another chance to get hold of an all time classic Sackboy costume. Inside the pack you’ll find Medusa and Minotaur costumes and a bunch of themed stickers to help you recreate ancient Greece in your game.

Supersonic Sackboy
In February why not pick up the pace and splash out on the WipEout content pack. Containing the WipEout costume kit and plenty of stickers to add some flavour to your game, this is a very cool pack indeed.

Early 2009 Release Schedule
Please note all these dates may change, but we’ll announce what is coming and when, each week.

The critics can say what they want, but LPG is the game that just keeps on giving! Now bring on the Final Fantasy goods!

Yay! My avatar is finally showing! Long live Happy_Spud!

PSN LBP people, add me! I want to score that one trophy, but I need more LBP friends to do so!


+ Audioboxer on January 22nd, 2009 at 7:25 am said:

Looking good, awesome!

KZ2 pack for KZ2 release, get it done guys ;)


+ GamerMoney on January 22nd, 2009 at 7:27 am said:

kz2…not a bad idea…im sure they’ll release costume as they did for resistance 2…all they needed was a nathan hail costume too


+ Stuffgamer1 on January 22nd, 2009 at 7:38 am said:

I’m just gonna echo some other folks and ask for the Nariko DLC to be released as well. You know more people already have the God of War pack than the Nariko costume anyway, just because of where they were given out!


+ isolatebody on January 22nd, 2009 at 7:39 am said:

The monkey one cracks me up.


+ Ti_dus on January 22nd, 2009 at 7:40 am said:

We want level packs, not characters only :( Any free stuff?


+ computerwis5 on January 22nd, 2009 at 7:41 am said:

The God of War Costume looks awesome. How much is it going to cost me?


+ GamerMoney on January 22nd, 2009 at 7:41 am said:

I actually preferred nariko over kratos but gamestop was closer…get me some heavenly sword content


+ computerwis5 on January 22nd, 2009 at 7:42 am said:

By the way, are you going to add some Killzone content or Dead Space?


+ Midgetguy on January 22nd, 2009 at 7:44 am said:



AWESOME!!!!! I’m definately digging the new costumes and sticker packs!

And, to all of you guys (and girls) at Media Molecule, don’t worry about the small delay, you guys have been working hard to deliver all of this amazing LBP content, so you can at least know that I forgive this small mishap!


+ GamerMoney on January 22nd, 2009 at 7:46 am said:

what would’ve been nice was if y’all had done a little football pack since superbowl is almost here


+ coastermaniac on January 22nd, 2009 at 7:49 am said:

nice linup of stuff. looking forward to it.

Off topic: Hey Jeff, could you get someone to add a “remember me” checkbox to the new login form? it’s kind of annoying to have to log in again every time I close the browser… thanks


+ BiscoMix on January 22nd, 2009 at 7:51 am said:

I’m looking forward to the God of War mini pack. Great content coming by the way. I’ll probably buy most of it.


+ lakaiHIGH on January 22nd, 2009 at 7:51 am said:

oh noes! that’s alright guys, you’ve just given me enough time to go back and complete the remaining trophies i need to get. im an optimistic kinda guy and i like to see the glass as half full. can’t wait for all these!



+ klekamp on January 22nd, 2009 at 7:53 am said:

Nice, but the whole point of having exclusive costumes/content is to encourage you to pre-order. So basically, I’m not too happy about the GOW costumes. In the future pre-order = nothing….. :(


+ BiscoMix on January 22nd, 2009 at 7:53 am said:

Also, I would love a Killzone 2 costume. :)


+ XxBoR1CuAxX on January 22nd, 2009 at 8:00 am said:

sweet keep them coming


+ big_hawk97 on January 22nd, 2009 at 8:00 am said:

These seem nice but the MGS pack kinda spoiled me. It’ll be kinda hard to sell me on something less than that. I’ll pay for a level, but I don’t know about a costume.


+ Swedgen on January 22nd, 2009 at 8:05 am said:

My progress for the MGS level pack still won’t save(aces, prize collection). Can’t really say I care about anymore DLC until the problems resulting from earlier DLC are fixed.


+ Megulito on January 22nd, 2009 at 8:15 am said:

all costumes quite awesome


+ BZKlint on January 22nd, 2009 at 8:17 am said:



+ Sakimori_X on January 22nd, 2009 at 8:18 am said:

Oh… my… god… Those chinese costume sackpals look so adorable.

Also, I love the idea of Wipeout costumes, but come on… Piranha? Everybody knows Harimau and Icaras are the shizznit!! :)


+ jayrockslife on January 22nd, 2009 at 8:24 am said:

Whatever happened to the Killzone Helgast costumes showed in a very early trailer last year?


+ AlexD169 on January 22nd, 2009 at 8:29 am said:

Nice! Good news I am glad we finally got to see some pictures they look really nice..


+ Fantus on January 22nd, 2009 at 8:30 am said:

So here I thought I would have something special for pre-ordering. And now it’s going to be open for everyone. So when i’m playing and someone sees me in my Kratos (or Nariko soon probably) costume, they’ll just think I bought it recently. Instead of being the type of player that has been into this game all along to the point that they pre-ordered it. And didn’t just pick it up afterwards.

…this makes me a sad panda


+ KazeEternal on January 22nd, 2009 at 8:30 am said:

Thanks for the heads up on the features. Seems most developers are keen on waiting till the last minute to tell us about them. Some even not responsible for games like to just spring features on us *cough*Sony’s PS3/PSP Firmware Division*cough*


+ OItar on January 22nd, 2009 at 8:34 am said:

Nice, keep it up guys. I agree with mexwarrior: we need more music, please! And also more of those level packs like the mgs4 ones


+ QCVic on January 22nd, 2009 at 8:41 am said:

Awesome.It’s worth the wait. Any news on the “day and night globe” item that was in the third MGS level?


+ fnook on January 22nd, 2009 at 8:41 am said:

Yes.. PLEASE MAKE THE NARIKO COSTUME PAK AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE.. Been wanting that one for ages now..


+ SOOPERGOOMAN187 on January 22nd, 2009 at 8:44 am said:

Oh and EARLY SPRING THIS YEAR, puxatawny Pete ain’t got nothing on weather predicting like me.


+ Transient on January 22nd, 2009 at 8:50 am said:

Wow, so much for GoW being “exclusive” content for people who pre-ordered. I still have my preorder kit and it clearly says it is exclusive.

That’s the thanks we get for supporting your product early. Thanks MM! :(


+ Andrefpvs on January 22nd, 2009 at 8:53 am said:

Don’t even think about making the FF7 a “sticker and costume” pack! :P

We want a level pack like the MGS one for FF7 ;)


+ fnook on January 22nd, 2009 at 9:01 am said:

@ Transient: Don’t think of the pre-order bonuses as “exclusives”, think of them as GETTING THE PAKS FREE, and BEFORE everyone else who DIDN’T get them when you did..


+ Enforcer_X on January 22nd, 2009 at 9:09 am said:

A Little BIG Delay … had to say it lol
It’s cool we understand. Content looks great can’t wait!

I still want my MM T-Shirt I haven’t forgot!


+ CinderShadow on January 22nd, 2009 at 9:18 am said:

Great selection, there – I especially like the Ape Escape character; but I hope that the Nariko costume is something you’re also going to be releasing.


+ Sekoku on January 22nd, 2009 at 9:18 am said:

Do mien eyes deceive me? Do I see Ape Escape and Toro/that Sony Cat are coming to the US?

I’m like a battered wife with stockholm syndrome for you, Sony. I hate how you treat us, but you finally give us something we’ve been wanting since the Japan launch so it’s all good.

Now, if there was more patching going on from MM, for… oh… say HD image importing instead of PSEye we’d be good.


+ FE_RR on January 22nd, 2009 at 9:20 am said:

yes…i’m missing the nariko costume also, it would be great a nariko costume available for free in the PS Store, so the ones at e-bay selling it at USD 40 banish in they greed…

it would be awesome a iron man costume and a FFVII pack like the mgs4!!


+ Dardantuan on January 22nd, 2009 at 9:36 am said:

I am kind of on the fence regarding releasing the so called ‘exclusive pre-order items’ to the general public. Yes, it is nice we can all get these items to complete our collections. On the other hand, it does kind of take the fun out of having a rare item, for those of us who got them the legit way. I say keep the rare/uncommon items rare.


+ poisonedsodapop on January 22nd, 2009 at 9:37 am said:

I just hope Nariko never hits the PSN. Otherwise I wouldn’t have had a reason to preorder.


+ soup4n on January 22nd, 2009 at 9:41 am said:

little big awsome!


+ Gustavo_B on January 22nd, 2009 at 9:48 am said:

great news!

But I would like to read something about a Killzone 2 pack (some news levels please!!) and a custom soundtrack feature would be great.


+ Neil on January 22nd, 2009 at 9:50 am said:

Toro costume? Toro costume! Hell yes Toro costume! THANK YOU!


+ Exion75 on January 22nd, 2009 at 9:56 am said:

@ 89
As someone that pre-ordered,I was actually hoping for the 2 “bonus sets” to come to the PSN. If it were just one set maybe I’d agree with you,but I have all DLC available except Nariko. If they were to only release the Kratos set and not the Nariko set,it wouldn’t be fair to everyone that got Kratos instead of Nariko.


+ jazzyrider on January 22nd, 2009 at 9:59 am said:

The Chinese New Year’s outfits look great!


+ Fallen_Shadow94 on January 22nd, 2009 at 10:00 am said:

i hope they release a heavenly sword costume not fair considering they said that the would never release the kratos costume for sale so its only fair for those that preordered from gamestop


+ bravo-man on January 22nd, 2009 at 10:09 am said:

Please would like to see God of war level come back any one els.


+ SpyroLuver88 on January 22nd, 2009 at 10:13 am said:

I have to say that I agree with those who pre-ordered. The GOW and Nariko should be kept exclusive. It is true that they were free with reserves but the bonus was actually that the costumes were unavailable except to those who plunked their money down early and had faith that LBP would live up to the hype.

And on another note…where is the merchandise? I want a plushie! Please?


+ SpyroLuver88 on January 22nd, 2009 at 10:15 am said:

Oh and I meant to say that the Valentines Day sack is adorable;)


+ Kamahl_rg on January 22nd, 2009 at 10:17 am said:

nice… i wanted the god of war stuff…

btw, since i linked my PSN to my forum account i cant stay logged in to the site, and everytime i come i have to login again, is it just me or thats how the site is?


+ jimmy903 on January 22nd, 2009 at 10:21 am said:

I love the holiday themes, keep those coming. Also any chance we can get the Heavenly Sword pack. I pre ordered from GameStop so I have the GoW one already. -40cal
