LittleBigPlanet Community Update

GI-MUNGOUS update for you guys today…so lets get right to it.

LBP What's New

Alex Evans REMIX’d

A few weeks back, during the Mm Community Jam, Alex, myself and the rest of the Mm team stayed up all night with our super-users. And when you combine no sleep + coffee / energy drinks / both with fun, creative minds and lots of laughter ensues. Particularly at my expense, as they found out I was the Marketing Manager for Genji: Days of the Blade. From then it was nonstop Genji talk, ending in a brilliant auto-tuned song dedicated to me, with brilliant lyrics and chorus of “Massive Damage” / “Giant Crabs”. Payback time…

New on the PlayStation Store

YES!!!!!! MARVEL COSTUMES!!!!!! I’ve been waiting forever and forever for this ever since it was announced when? Two years ago? By the looks of the amount of characters, though, the wait was well worth it. Consider my money yours until these costumes quit coming out, Sony! ;)

Hey Mark! Josh here–it was awesome to meet ya at E3! Cool that Game Changers Kids got extended over the summer—us Game Changers Adults are preparing to do our required levels (we start sometime between July 1st and December 1st)—-PLEASE if you guys have any pull in it try to get Sony to give LBP2 to the libraries and such so we can do our levels in LBP2—I can’t overstate how much I’d love to do my levels in LBP2 ;-)

When I do finally get LBP2 I know what my first ride-oriented task will be: doing a LBP version of Six Flags Magic Mountain’s X2 ride complete with onboard audio and effects ;-) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNe4utCQL3w)

Three questions:
1. If I buy them now, I can play these Marvel levels in LBP2 as well, right?
2. Any plan to extend the Marvel partnership to LBP2, so you can make Marvel levels with the new tools?
3. Can you make MLB/NBA sackboy avatars as well?

Thanks.

+ munkyjump on June 25th, 2010 at 3:55 pm said:

with LBP2 coming out so soon, it almost seems pointless to be buying additional content for LBP right now, unless it’s all transferable. but yes, there being marvel characters is great, though my three favorite characters (Deadpool, Gambit, Nightcrawler) weren’t included.

going to have to add some funds to my wallet,that Marvel pack is a definite purchase

this is off topic but does anyone know why the ModNation trophies don’t show up on Playstation.com? I’ve synced them but they don’t show up

Getting them Day One. Will all the costumes that you unlock from Single-Player in LBP 1 transfer over to LBP 2? Or just the DLC?
