We are kicking off the week with some fun news bytes as well as introducing a great new program we are launching this week called “the patch”. Great week to all!

LBP Originals on THE PATCH

LBP Patches logo

As most of you know, we’ve been spending the past few months touring and showing LittleBigPlanet at various promotional events. We’ve had the pleasure to meet a wide variety of great personalities from artists, to athletes, to musicians and allowed them to get their hands on LBP Create tools. Some provided great inspiration, some were extremely hands on, and in the end we came up with some great creations together, levels that in one way or another say something about what they are about. This Friday, you’ll be able to go online in LittleBigPlanet and check out a new hot spot destination on called “the patch”.

On “the patch” you’ll find LBP Original levels created by inspiring individuals and interesting personalities. For our first showcase, we are spotlighting Joe Vaux, Sarah Burke, and Nathan Cabrera. Throughout the week, you’ll hear from several of them and their own experiences creating their LBP Original, so stay tuned the rest of the week and find out what other personalities you’ll find on “the patch”.

PREPARE TO BE JUDGED WALLPAPER

Judge Dredd is getting closer to LBP and to celebrate Media Molecule is hooking you up with some cool wallpaper for your computer.

SACKBOY SPIDER?

We found this online and we thought it was a photoshop job, but this is an actual spider. We couldn’t help but be reminded about our favorite character. As much as we love Sackboy, not sure if I want to catch this guy in my kitchen…or anywhere.

Patch hopes shattered. :/

Next time call it “The Hub” or something. No need to play with our emotions.

Rated 1/5

Excited for the Monster Pack (is that a new background there?!) but “The Patch” is ultra lame :( A special little priveleged corner for third tier celebrity’s levels instead of incorporating a weekly MM Picks section suggests all the wrong priorities.

I like the horror pack, but I may need to pull the plug on this DLC at some point. I want to own all the LBP goodies and have a “complete” game, but I was a little frustrated with creating from the get-go and I really don’t play the game all that much these days. At some point this DLC should gradually start to become cheaper considering the game is almost 8 months old. I really can’t afford this for too much longer and I’m sure I’m not the only one. It’s starting to be quite a turn-off, actually…

I’m uneasy about “The Patch.” As interesting as it might be to see levels created by minor celebrities, I question their design abilities and commitment- although I’m sure they have a lot of inside help. They should have to fight for plays like the rest of us. Oh well, what can you do. At least it’s free, right? Right!?

I was hoping for a giant patch too :(. Like artificially intelligent sack boys so you can do cooler things. Like in the video where sackboy had to save the princess.

wow there’s a lot of cry baby’s in this world, “Well I thought the “PATCH” was an actual patch mwahhhh mwaahh im going to rate it a 1 cause its not what i thought mwuuahhh” lol i think the “PATCH” is a great addition, also the monsters pack’s are awesome and cant wait to be judged “I AM THE LAW”

-Question… will the new monster pack have trophies since it comes with a developer made level?

+ Ti_dus on May 18th, 2009 at 12:32 pm said:

Level packs, please…

i dont get it, so what is “the patch?”


15

+ millerdude75 on May 18th, 2009 at 12:34 pm said:

So ‘the patch’ isn’t even a patch? The only thing this blog is good for is making people mad. Sony is a joke! I’m still waiting for something to justify my $500 PS3 purchase. Till then I’ll be playing my 360.


16

+ lowhonor on May 18th, 2009 at 12:35 pm said:

also you guys really need to make level packs. those are the only things that i might consider purchasing, not characters and stickers, etc


17

+ jazzyrider on May 18th, 2009 at 12:35 pm said:

Monster’s kit sounds cool! Too bad you couldn’t wait to release this around Halloween – would’ve been a perfect themed event!

+ gold5225 on May 18th, 2009 at 12:39 pm said:

@3 I definitely agree with you there i wonder why they haven’t fixed it yet.

As much as I hate and despise and cringe when I see/think I ee spiders, I had trouble looking away from that one. I wonder if you can make it look sad/scared or angry.

And I agreed with Jazzy, a halloween release would’ve been much better.

+ ROLO_ONFIRE on May 18th, 2009 at 12:48 pm said:

hmm I thought the whole monsters pack (everything on the video) was $3.99 :(

+ Zookey on May 18th, 2009 at 12:50 pm said:

More lBP fun hahahaha! Kinda weird timing, but new toys to play with never will get a complaint from me! Yay for new levels too!


25

+ PHANTASMN707 on May 18th, 2009 at 12:51 pm said:

So, are we still going to eventually get the online co-op for the “My Moon” level editor? Or should we just stop asking for it now? Even a simple “we’re still evaluating this” would be welcome. We haven’t had an update on this for at least a few months.

Thanks in advance :D

I thought the patch was to stop smoking!!!


27

+ Zealow on May 18th, 2009 at 12:56 pm said:

I wish we’ld get more real packs with new levels and features like the metal gear solid one instead of all these costumes.


28

+ Zeonoth on May 18th, 2009 at 1:00 pm said:

I agree with #27. The only DLC I can bring myself to buy are the level packs like the MGS one. Will we be getting any word on some news levels?

+ xaos on May 18th, 2009 at 1:04 pm said:

Judge Dredd? Sackboy? Chocolate? Peanut butter?

“I am the cute!”

lol epic please keep up the good work.

+ WindedHero on May 18th, 2009 at 1:07 pm said:

What about play/create/share counts!? Come on it’s been over 6 months and you haven’t fixed a feature which was broken upon release? I don’t see how you guys can show an unfinished product to professionals of any kind. I was seriously hoping “the patch” was exactly that. THE PATCH to fix stats that have been broken from the start.

@15…

You seem to use this comment ALOT.

*http://forums.littlebigworkshop.com/lbp/board/message?board.id=pod&view=by_date_ascending&message.id=37140

Why do you continue to buy games for the system then (K2 and Godfather 2 are some of your recent purchases) when you seem to really dislike your purchase?


34

+ SPARDA on May 18th, 2009 at 1:11 pm said:

OOPS.. I thought they were talking about an actual Patch.
I was hoping I could finally build/Create with my buddies online.

Oh well.

Make a ROBOCOP sack person outfit.

What happened to the level that the university did that they could only have 24 hours to do it in???

ive allways wondered about that level

+ Nagash_MalKaVian on May 18th, 2009 at 1:29 pm said:

I’d like to buy, but a pack like this that often is very expensive… and LBP don’t feed me. I’ll stick to free DLC =(


41

+ SharkRocket7 on May 18th, 2009 at 1:37 pm said:

“The Patch” sounds boring to me. The werewolf costumes is cool though.

Please fix the scoreboard. And is there any point to have a news section in the game if you only update it like once?!


42

+ TRIX_BOL on May 18th, 2009 at 1:37 pm said:

Wait a second…

Did we already get the patch that we could *listen to our music* while on the pod?

I’ll be getting the monsters for sure, but I wish the zombie was more like an actual zombie.

@ 2, you get an F for shouting First!

I can’t wait for the PSBlog meetup

That was pretty weak. You guys really couldn’t have really thought that “The Patch” was not a deceiving name to use..?

+ guitain on May 18th, 2009 at 1:56 pm said:

I’m really looking forward to The Patch! I think it sounds awesome! I was hoping all this touring around would provide some playable content =D

I also think that you’ve really upped yourself on the Cool Levels-page. It’s my one-stop shop for Cool Levels, which I assume is the intention! Good work on that!

Now we just need the PCS-points up and running! =]

Looking forward to the Monster Pack, I like that it’s a more “free” form of costume pack. I’ve recently started making original costumes, instead of simply wearing a Hellghast-costume, I’ve made a Future Warrior-costume using Wipeout and Killzone-content! It’s great!

Keep it up!
