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.

Week of 1/26
– Chinese New Year Costumes – available for 10 days only.

LittleBigPlanet - Chinese New Year poster

– God of War mini pack

…i wanted nariko instead of kratos but gamestop is alot closer to me…give me the nariko pack media molecule

and to everyone maonin and grownin about the exclusive content…well y’all should have know this was gonna happen i mean the game is exclusive to sony and y’all want media molecule to limit the rest just because they didn’t pre-order? i pre-ordered and got the pack but wanted the other…but i get what you’re sayin…i’ll just stick with my chimeran sackboy for now


+ joelface on January 22nd, 2009 at 10:26 am said:

Well, I have to admit, I’m disappointed about the delay, but the groundhog and the chinese new years costumes look great!

The Wipeout content pack intrigues me as well… would it be races? guess i’ll just have to wait an see for now.


+ xenorevlis on January 22nd, 2009 at 10:27 am said:

When do you think we’ll see Sackboy plushies available for order on the PlayStation Store? I don’t care if they’re $10+ and take a week or more to get here, I just want to buy this stuff! And LBP apparel :D

+ Reese8732 on January 22nd, 2009 at 10:30 am said:

Well I’ll be getting this stuff too


+ GersanMW on January 22nd, 2009 at 10:32 am said:

Wiped out By the awesome news. I really don’t mind the delay. Keep it up guys!!


+ davivman on January 22nd, 2009 at 10:33 am said:

I will echo the request for the heavenly sword pack!


+ GamerMoney on January 22nd, 2009 at 10:38 am said:

heavenly sword!!! heavenly sword!!! heavenly sword!!! let the chants commence


+ acerazer1 on January 22nd, 2009 at 10:53 am said:

I had a feeling there would be a delay with no word on what was going to released today all week.

Doesn’t bother me too much, looks like waiting will be worth it. Plus, some of that stuff is free, can’t complain.


+ foolio_67 on January 22nd, 2009 at 10:53 am said:

Those look awesome! Can’t wait to get them all :D


+ opsdaddy on January 22nd, 2009 at 10:57 am said:

I’ll admit it, I’ve waited to purchase LBP. Based on its sales record, I’m not alone in this. Before I buy, though, I need to know if Mm has solved any or all of the following problems:

1) Server lag.
2) Shutting down PS3 upon exiting game.
3) Profile filling up, preventing gamers from being able to save data without first stripping out costumes, stickers, etc.

Can any of you experienced LBP gamers tell me if these have been fixed, or is a patch in the works? Thanks…


+ Enforcer_X on January 22nd, 2009 at 11:11 am said:

1: LBP runs on P2P so your lag is based on the weekest link of the players connected.

2: Never had this happen to me with LBP before or after the patches and I have played A LOT

3: Again never had this happen to me either and I have every item available from the single player game as well as many items available from user created levels.

They are working on another patch but the details have not been released yet.

Hope this helps.
Go buy the game!


+ KingofHilo19 on January 22nd, 2009 at 11:15 am said:

at least they let us know about the delay early. i cant wait for all that new content


+ AceOfSpades725 on January 22nd, 2009 at 11:20 am said:

hmm pretty cool DLC! i’ll be getting some of these for sure!

but as for the god of war pack….i wish i pre-ordered somewhere else if i knew you guys were going to sell it later on…. I should have seen that one coming :/


+ death_vader301 on January 22nd, 2009 at 11:31 am said:

Hay Sony marketing manager I got a ? ? all regions got there hands on the week 1 t-shirt except north america so when were gonna get our week 1 t-shirt like what MM and Sony promise ? I preorder lbp,got delay till the 25 of october I even got the nariko and kratos dlc and i spend more psn dollers on lbp dlc then other dlc on the psn and its been 2 months 3 and a half weeks that we haven’t got the week 1 t-shirt and im still waiting . please Sony I or We need answers! And yes I am saying this out of anger and confusion but try saying this in a good way.


+ Grondinm on January 22nd, 2009 at 11:37 am said:

Looks sweet can’t wait to see these. and i must say update 2.60 is great.


+ CJSgamer on January 22nd, 2009 at 11:40 am said:

is the valentimes day one free


+ Anzo42 on January 22nd, 2009 at 11:52 am said:

I echo the sentiment that it would be nice to know which costumes are free vs. paid content.


+ viprdude on January 22nd, 2009 at 11:57 am said:

Make a ROBOCOP sack costume!


+ meatee on January 22nd, 2009 at 12:02 pm said:

Hmm, just converted my account to the PSN account, but I’m still showing my old username (not my PSN name) and there’s no avatar…


+ NyghtcrawleR on January 22nd, 2009 at 12:05 pm said:

So, this still begs the question about when we are getting the fixes for the save problems caused by the MGS pack?

I like new content, but when I lose saved stuff due to the last dlc pack, well….


+ TwinDad on January 22nd, 2009 at 12:05 pm said:

Mark thank you for being forward and honest with the games fans. Also this is the best post ever on the blog. Why, it’s not last minute posts to content we would find out about in a few hours anyways. I like seeing what is coming for the next few weeks. even if they do get delayed, it’s okay, we know what to expect.

Thank you for bringing in toro from Japan. The best part of this game is that it’s worldwide as is the user and MM created content. Thank you for not sticking to regions.


+ DaxMontana on January 22nd, 2009 at 12:12 pm said:

Sucks that everyone and their dog has the same Avatars now. Bad move.


+ CaruthK on January 22nd, 2009 at 12:17 pm said:

This is way cool. The PS-Store has come a long way. All we need now is a music app like the Photo app on the XMB & I’m set.

+ tolkienfanatic on January 22nd, 2009 at 12:23 pm said:

I really like the Groundhog Day costume :D


+ Thew902 on January 22nd, 2009 at 12:35 pm said:

What about that patch allowing players to create levels online together?


+ ElDrifter23 on January 22nd, 2009 at 12:35 pm said:

I love the Valentines costume.. it looks amazing lol


+ kaoskrayola on January 22nd, 2009 at 12:42 pm said:

I love DLC but I hope you guys are working on the not saving glitch that happens when you download the MGS level pack. Any info on that?


+ R-E-N on January 22nd, 2009 at 12:50 pm said:

How did I know they would delay it at the last minute? I should be angry but im not because the fact that they are bringing over Toro.


+ lando786 on January 22nd, 2009 at 1:15 pm said:

Im thinking the GoW pack will be free. I already have it but since it was a pre-order gift it should be free like JeNel said. They should also do this with Nariko and the Heavenly Sword Pack somewhere down the road.


+ xenorevlis on January 22nd, 2009 at 1:16 pm said:

I wonder if this delay has to do with the patch they are working on, or if it has to do with balancing out the amount of stuff released today and next week?

Hopefully it’s both, but I’d still love to know what we’re getting today. Being in the dark is annoying – and I’d like to voice that we get more game trailers out ASAP and flood the damn thing with PSone games. I don’t understand how there can be so many for Japan and Europe but no NTSC love :(


+ NoobianGod on January 22nd, 2009 at 1:16 pm said:

Sweet! Looking forward to more level packs! MGS pack was great!!!


+ GAME-HERO on January 22nd, 2009 at 1:17 pm said:

awesome, keep them characters coming!


+ DARK_JAK_911 on January 22nd, 2009 at 1:29 pm said:

What about the first week T-shirt that was promised before the game released? The game has been out for 3 months, and no word about when it will release.


+ Thrasher20 on January 22nd, 2009 at 1:31 pm said:

Nice. I’m looking forward to every LBP update


+ mom2sam25 on January 22nd, 2009 at 1:35 pm said:

this look so cute & thanks for the god of war stuff..I love it & need to get it


+ redknight4 on January 22nd, 2009 at 1:36 pm said:

I’m glad the MM decided to bring the ape escape and toro custumes over form japan. Is ape escape costum going to be a limted time offer like it was in japan?

I’m happy to see that the preorder packs are starting to release. Is there a set price for them yet?

What’s up with Eu still haveing the spacesuit costum available in thier psn store?


+ DonnyG on January 22nd, 2009 at 1:47 pm said:

What is up with those Wipeout costumes? Worst ones I’ve seen.


+ EddyxMob on January 22nd, 2009 at 1:53 pm said:

Really Sucks about the delay but



+ Taz1492 on January 22nd, 2009 at 1:55 pm said:

Looks good…my only question is if the GOW pack is free???…i also hope there is a GOW level pack like the MGS4 pack in the makin…for now keep up the excellent work


+ Scodo_Thope on January 22nd, 2009 at 1:57 pm said:

GameCrazy screwed me and gave away all the LittleBigSacks. Said SONY only sent them 12 (my butt hurts, they game them to their geek friends).

Now I am burnt on pre-order deals (and will not shop GameCrazy ever again). So bring all the content on. THANKS MM!



+ KyeStyle on January 22nd, 2009 at 2:04 pm said:

Thx for perfect DLC!!!!


+ DaveTheStalker on January 22nd, 2009 at 2:15 pm said:

When will we be seeing a patch for the “LittleBigGLITCH”? You know, the one that tells us our “profile is too big, so delete some stuff”? We’re not in the old days of the 8MB PS2 Memory Card. This is the only game I have seen with a glitch like this.


+ DustyBlue on January 22nd, 2009 at 2:16 pm said:

I love that Ape Escape one best! But the Valentine’s Day one seems… Plain… And the Wipeout one seems… Stupid… The groundhog is really cute though! The Chinese costumes are cool, too.


+ NEJI64 on January 22nd, 2009 at 2:16 pm said:
