LittleBigPlanet Valentines Pack Update

Mark Valledor's Avatar + Posted by Mark Valledor on Feb 05, 2009 // Marketing Manager, SCEA

In a world of public apologies, consider this my big fat sack-sized “I’m Sorry!”.

As some of you noted on your comments, the LBP Valentines pack is actually priced at $2.99 despite my post where it was stated as free. I welcome everyone now at this point to send me a “SACKBOY SLAP” via comments. I deserve it.

LittleBigPlanet - Sackboy Expressions Valentines Post

Don’t worry, we have tons of Free LBP DLC coming down the line so look for those announcements soon.

(hopefully I won’t have to put my foot inside my mouth again.)

I find it ironic that of all the content you charge for a Valentine’s Day pack. Isn’t Valentines Day about LOVE? You should show LBP fans a little Love and dole out the content pack for FREE!! :P but whatever though, the free content has been great to see because it’s always nice when developers give a little back. I don’t want a $60 game with another $40+ in down loadable content. ;) ;) ;) ;) ;)

Why don’t you have Media Molecule put up a video or a post showing how much goes into creating assets,animation,QA testing so the average joe would understand why DLC isn’t free all the time. Most people think you make it in a day and stick it in the game and that it’s a rip off,but really have no idea.

@enewtabie,
That’d be pretty cool.

Overall, it’s all good – those who want it will pay. Not a big deal really. Keep the content coming and don’t worry – we all make small mistakes. Very nice of you to take the fall.

Mark Valledor – Its not like you went out of your way to make something up then switch things around. You did the best with what you had at the time.

My point is there was a mistake, you came on here and came clean. Mistakes happen and you were honest about it.

I purchased the pack last night and you deserve to be paid for it. I had no problem handing over my 2.99

There have been plenty of free costumes and things given out so by paying we insure that the after game development continues. I want this game that has become an evolving world to flourish and look forward to more level packs like the MGS (which I love)

Thanks again and I look forward to the next release of LBP items. I must have them all even though I am still learning how to build levels.

Thanks again Mm for everything that is LBP.

Yes I still want that “Week 1 shirt”. There is something about it. I do not care about the price… I just need the t-shirt. I must have cool T-shirts for the Sackpeople.

Oohh I would so get all the LBP DLC but I live in Malaysia!! We don’t have PSN!! And that really SUCKS!!! :(

LBP was the reason I got a PS3…I will get any and all DLC…but since I had LBP pre-ordered over a YEAR before it came out…I really wanted my day 1 T-shirt. It makes my sackboy sad that it was eliminated for us in the US. I regularly race home on Thursdays to make sure I get LBP DLC as soon as possible. PLEASE keep it coming, I love it all!!!!

This week, I spent almost all my free time on recently (a total of around 10 hours!) trying to get online to get the DLC and now I find out about this and the X-Mas stuff, and I’m not happy. Having time based content makes a divide between the “Elite” players who have all the limited time items will often have the items on and the “Noobs” who just started. Continued on next post.


162

+ bevars on February 6th, 2009 at 12:20 pm said:

However those “Noobs” likely have very creative ideas, while the “Elite” likely have already used up many of their ideas. And when new players find out about the now impossible to get items they will feel like they won’t ever be able to be able to get these items and will feel cheated, they will quit and as a result, the amount of creativity and customers will drop. Please make holiday items only free for X amount of days then after that just slap a price tag on them. But unless you can do that and bring back past item then (or just do something to that affect) I can’t say that I won’t boycott the Little Big Planet and DLC itself or encourage others to do the same, and with so many companies facing bankruptcy now I’d think that loss of customers would be a much bigger blow than usual.
P.S. Anyone from Media Molecule care to tell why they even have 1 time items?

@137 Yeah I’m the stupid one. I didn’t pay $2.99 for stuff that looks like it was made in MSPaint. oh well. keep buying this crap and buy some make believe clothes in @HOME for $1.99 while you’re at it. BTW it’s kind of weird that your post pops up today when there were other posts after mine last night yours was not there. Sounds like something like a blog admin could do… maybe not.

WEll I have seen you respond quite a lot actually. I was wondering about 2 questions

oh and i guess sackboy slap? Don’t think you need one. Stuff happens y’know?

1) Will we see Narikos face in the PSN store? My guess is no, (can you tell me hoewever?) highly no, (and here is why i believe that.) because she doesn’t show up on the LBP store from the menu when you click on the controller from the pod. My pre-ordered Kratos showed up. But Nariko did not.

Also, my second question/

2) In the Kratos pack, I got the pre order goodies, but, i see a sticker with Kratoses face as a sticker both on the LBP store and psn store, however the stickers do not show up as a buyable item. I have them, but i don’t have this kratos sticker. Is this just a picture to attract, or do only a lucky few get this sticker. I don’t have it, I have the horse the Olympus sign and others, but no kratos face?

Is Nariko gonna get a Heavenly Sword pack??

Please make one I love Heavenly Sword and I know tons of HS fans would love that.

I would gladly pay £2:99 for a Heavenly Sword pack!

Come on sony we want more Nariko and HS NOW!!!!

+ kolmohdee on February 8th, 2009 at 12:04 pm said:

Here’s the problem.

Sony messed up, Mm did not. Sony is already in a financial hole and I’m betting that they can barely afford to use two staples much less cover the revenue to Mm that they would owe them.

So Sony, how are you going to make this up to us? I mean technically this is false advertising, (not bait and switch by a technically legal standpoint). You guys apologized, which is great, although I’m pretty sure that if anybody were to really slap you we would get hit with assault charges. But you guys need to make good on your promise somehow, let’s not throw the taint of another failed Sony promise on this awesome game.

Thank you.

Never was a big fan of Pay for DLC. One of the main reasons I bought a PS3 was for the free network. Xbox live membership on a yearly sub is BS.

I’ve only bought the rock band export cause it was worth the price, I would never buy costumes that are $3.00…

Frying pan slap for you! (but it takes balls to admit when you are at fault. Thanks!)

+ PSdog21 on February 15th, 2009 at 5:15 pm said:

No worries… gonna get it anyways!

But please… please… PLEASE don’t put premium costumes at $1.99! I’m already at $5.89 from my gift card after buying some awesome LBP DLC. So please… please PLEASE make them cheaper, so my money can last longer.

Oh, and BTW,
GREAT DLC SO FAR… REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO OTHERS
