Welcome back to another episode of “Sack it to me.” We have a quickie today, but a good one…

LittleBigPlanet Content For April
It’s that time again! Here’s the scheduled release dates for additional LittleBigPlanet content for the rest of this month and the start of May.

Those of you who keep an eye on these updates will notice that the Heavenly Sword mini-pack has moved back by two weeks, but in its place is the extremely cool Rag Doll Kung Fu costume pack, which now launches on the same day that the game comes to the PlayStation Store.

The big news for April however is that the 1.12 “Cornish Yarg” update is being released, which provides some new features along with some fixes to problems reported by the community. Also included in this update is Creator Pack 1 that contains some very cool new devices, gizmos and tools to help you build your levels. Should the date for the release of the Cornish Yarg update change, we’ll inform you ahead of time, but right now it’s looking good to go for April 16th!

April 9th : Rag Doll Kung Fu Costumes : $5.99

LBP Rag Doll Kung Fu Costume

  • Option to select whether to automatically collect community prizes and photos
  • A number of improvements have been made to make profiles more robust and to recover from certain errors

  • An option has been added to cycle between various level information when viewing community levels on the earth
  • Various LittleBigStore improvements

I wish it had these >>

* New Material
Metallic Fabric (Durable grab material not damaged by bombs) Ever tried making grab switches that don’t break when hit with bombs? I currently use Egg Sushi because of this issue.

* New Hazards
1. Invisible (Material or object is invisible in play mode but glows in create mode)
2. Freeze (Direct contact will slow and eventually freeze sack person)
3. Mud (Causes material to be partially solid, effect like quicksand)

* New Switches
1. Impact Switch. (Switch activates by impact or a slap like the MGS paintball switches but any impact effects output.)

2. Coupler (Allows multiple switches up to 10 inputs to connect to it. Can be set to require single on, all on, all off. Has output options such as ON/OFF, Direction, 1 shot and mimic. Unconnected inputs are ignored. On Mimic mode input switches cause the output to be the same. This way multiple directional 3 way directional switches can control the same object.

3. Speedometer Switch (Switches on or off when movement reaches a determined speed.) Can be used for stabilizers etc. Has one input and one output.

* Piston / Wench / Wobble bolt (Upgrade)
Center (Allows for device to auto center to this position if turned off)

+ Sarick on April 9th, 2009 at 8:27 am said:

And this as well.>>

* Create Mode Editing (Upgrade)

1. Visible position coordinates. X,Y,Z angle and width on screen.

2. Ability to select layer to attach devices, switches or stickers using R buttons just like placing materials while rendering other layers invisible. (Ever tried editing something that’s behind another object? If it was invisible from this toggle the front object would be ignored allowing access to items behind it or in that thickness only.) The ability to toggle could still exist.

If you select something in the background like a switch attachment you could still toggle to another layer and attach it without interference from other layers.

3. Proximity adjustment needs visible number range. Ever tried tweaking the magnetic switch or player range by 0.1? You can only adjust the proximity visual range without number values.

Awesome News, I can not wait! XD

Oh cool, you raised the prices! Thanks!
And thanks for making us pre-orderers have to pay for Nariko and the Heavenly Sword stickers! Thanks for trying to steal my money, you guys are awesome!

+ TwinDad on April 9th, 2009 at 8:49 am said:

Why no DLC for Easter. I know there is already a set of Bunny ears. But you could offer a different color or Maybe a “Chick”?


107

+ GameDreamer on April 9th, 2009 at 9:00 am said:

Awesome! Can’t wait for Cornish Yarg and the Creator Pack 1.


108

+ shima on April 9th, 2009 at 9:11 am said:

Nice! I’ll get the Norse pack. Will Kai be availble to buy seperate? I don’t really want to pay for the whole package as I already have Nariko.

wowo holy cow thats alot of new stuff

+ DaxMontana on April 9th, 2009 at 9:58 am said:

I particularly enjoy the $1.99 crossed out and replaced with $2.99.

Now THAT’S a deal I find hard to pass up. Hell, I think I’ll hold out…and maybe it’ll go up to $3.99.

It all feels like the sweet sting of a well placed slap delivered by a girl who loved me once but doesn’t love me anymore.


111

+ DaxMontana on April 9th, 2009 at 9:58 am said:

With these ridiculous prices, “Sack it to me” is dead on the money.


112

+ Kren420 on April 9th, 2009 at 10:07 am said:

i do find the prices a little high for just stickers and costumes, additional level packs would be very enjoyable by the majority of consumers it seems…..I wonder how much their gonna charge us for the next level pack? im gonna guess more then the MGS one cost


113

+ mgsfoxhound2 on April 9th, 2009 at 10:38 am said:

I LOVE THE SUPPORT FOR LBP!!! IT IS AWSOME SO MUCH DLC ITS INSANE, I LOVE IT! I ALSO LOVE THE FACT OF MM NOT MAKING A SECOND GAME AND ONLY DOING ADD ON EXPATIONS AND UPDATES!! LOVE THAT!!!!


114

+ Chemoglobin on April 9th, 2009 at 10:40 am said:

There isn’t really a good place for me to put this… but here’s a pre-emptive “I won’t be purchasing any of this, or anything else, until you start uploading more PSX games to the PSN.”

I’m ready to give you my money. Please take it.


115

+ Farva-5 on April 9th, 2009 at 10:40 am said:

You can debate pricing game-based DLC a dollar higher. but the Egyptian and Norse packs aren’t. If they were 1.99, they would be a definite buy. But 2.99? I just don’t know.


116

+ mgsfoxhound2 on April 9th, 2009 at 10:43 am said:

I know alot of people complain about the prices but i think they are just fine and I will pay the money for what i want, its not supposed to be so cheap that u can afford everything then everyone would have it online and it would be no fun because everyone would have the same outfits so i think they are good prices.


117

+ wu-stix on April 9th, 2009 at 10:56 am said:

Will there be an LBP home space, with game lauching? I need to get people to finish all the levels particularly the 3x and 4x sections. Home seems like a good place to meet people to do this.

+ bahamutXr79 on April 9th, 2009 at 11:12 am said:

wow this is great! :) I’m still waiting for my Sephiroth costume however. I’m not gonna buy most of the costumes, probably only the monkey king cause it looks surprisingly awesome ;) Keep up the DLC

The updates are nice. I really like the infinite lives checkpoints–hopefully creators will implement them into future levels. That’d be cool.

umm. yea that’s great and all… but what about Ratchet And Clank mini pack??????????????????????


127

+ PSdog21 on April 9th, 2009 at 5:53 pm said:

I have two words for the guys who thought up the new set of DLC… AWESOME!!!!!!!

By the way… do you really, really, really, REALLY, have to make these costumes so expensive?, Please cut down the prices, I’ll support you even if you send out a really lame costume, but a man can only spend so much!

P.S…. GREAT JOB GUYS!! Keep up the GREAT WORK!!!


128

+ cognac-vsop on April 9th, 2009 at 8:20 pm said:

cant believe people are payin that much for costumes! it sounds crazy to me. the prices keep goin up. these guys must be makin tons of cash, if loads of ppl are buyin costumes.
man throw us some good free costumes, maybe like kratos or snake or somethin, even if its free for like a day or somethin


129

+ endekks on April 10th, 2009 at 12:44 am said:

How about the ability to make artwork based off of JPG files off of the HDD? I like the stuff you guys make, but the camera as an input source just does not cut it – especially after you guys said HDD import would be a possibility in the past. We’re going on 6 months now, guys…


130

+ Farva-5 on April 10th, 2009 at 5:04 am said:

@121
I can say with confidence that they are not considering Pokemon pack. It’s a Nintendo exclusive. This is a Sony exclusive. Do the math.


131

+ TeknomanEX on April 10th, 2009 at 8:52 am said:

Hopefully we’ll get a new set of music to use in create mode soon.


132

+ phinnv8 on April 10th, 2009 at 11:49 am said:

And awesome mix of free and paid DLC.

LittleBigPlanet is a masterpiece!

Cross game private chat PLEASE SONY. LBP is one of the #1 games that could benefit from this!!!!!


133

+ rdmorris1234 on April 11th, 2009 at 12:53 am said:

Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Finally i can get Nariko.

When are they going to allow an object’s color to be changed / customized? You should be able to select something like the suit costume’s jacket then select “color” and use the analog stick to select the color you want. Also Red, Green, Blue or CMYK values should be allowed to be entered. This will help in making characters like the joker whose suit is dark purple.
