LittleBigPlanet Community Update

Mark Valledor's Avatar Posted by on Jun 25, 2010 // Marketing Manager, SCEA

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…

If that’s really a whole level pack like Pirates and MGS, I will buy it along with Spidey & Venom. If it’s some kind of plain level like Incredibles looked like, I’ll skip it.

This is great!!! It’s clobbering time!!!


+ plaztiksyke on June 25th, 2010 at 4:56 pm said:

What about Angel? It would be awesome for the costume to have wings that expand/flutter when falling!

A Professor Xavier costume with a wheelchair would also be really cool. Seeing a handicapped sackboy hop around and be active would be really inclusive for people who are wheelchair-bound!

Will there be a Deadpool costume eventually?

When are those owed the LittleBigPlanet PSP Launch Cap getting theirs? I’m one of them. I’m one of the many collectors, who will also be buying all these costumes. -_-;


+ BlackIceJoe on June 25th, 2010 at 6:50 pm said:

I my self am more of a DC fan. So is there hope you can work with WB to bring DC costumes to LBP. I think bringing DC characters to LBP would be really cool. So I hope DC will be next.

Even though I am not the biggest fan of the Marvel universe I think it is great to see them come out on LBP. So it is great to see lots of great content still coming out for LBP. Thanks for the great support for LBP & I can’t wait to see what will be added to it next.


+ Teebonesy on June 25th, 2010 at 6:58 pm said:

Excellent! Awesome to still see dedicated LBP posts on the blog. I’m also thinking that future press conferences should be accompanied with a live auto-tune operator. There’s nothing quite like learning new information whilst simultaneously “getting down”.

Also I just wanted to drop a link to a new video series we’re doing over at – The Creator Closeup: (this one’s hosted by myself).

If you’ve got room in a future blog update and you think it’s appropriate, we’d love a blurb! Anyway, take a look, hopefully you’ll enjoy the unhinged maniacry on display.


+ Batman4057 on June 25th, 2010 at 7:20 pm said:

This is cool and all, but I only like Punisher, Spider-man, and Hulk from Marvel. Can y’all please sign a deal with DC Comics(my favorite comic book company) as well. I would love to have the big three characters Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman as well as the other Dc characters lol


+ GMWarriorX on June 25th, 2010 at 8:07 pm said:

Somehow this feels like….old news, considering people probably made their own custom Marvel costumes months ago. Does this at least carry over into Little Big Planet 2?

Well its beautiful how a $60 game purchase turns into a $200 investment after all the add-ons and DLC.


+ Tridon on June 25th, 2010 at 8:08 pm said:

@ Mark

Sorry for making you second guess yourself, man. I’m just SO happy this is finally here. One question, though; any chance you can sweet-talk MM into one more character: Cyclops. I’ll pay $5 just for him. Tell me Sackboy wouldn’t look sweet with Cyke’s visor. Oh, well — at least I can finally play as WOLVERSACK!


+ NeoGuardian86 on June 25th, 2010 at 8:20 pm said:

Why don’t the people with lbp psp get any awesome dlc. I always feel like we get the ps3’s scraps. Don’t get me wrong I love lbp psp and ps3. But I need dlc I can sink my teeth into, not put up with just because it’s all I get. You don’t have to give the psp the best dlc but give us some of the older stuff(sephiroth(?), snake, ezio etc.) along with the new one’s that come out. I’m so tired of getting the most random dlc. And also( please forgive the fact that a sentence with “and”) what about the pre order bonus, when Is that coming to the store. I tried my best not to rant and don’t think I don’t appreciate the game and the dlc but please give me a reason the want to play lbppsp longer that ten mins. Thank you.

Holy crap, we’re getting new levels? Good god, it may snow in june/july.

About time and where’s sephiroth??

Now, Mark… what can you tell us about the possibility of being the GODDAMN BATMAN in the future? That’s a dream come true.

+ CervantesDL on June 26th, 2010 at 11:05 am said:

So Mark, you’re a fan of deadpool too? It’s a shame there isn’t an official sackboy costume… Just will have to stick with my created costume.

Also I agree with DarkOne_PR. Sackiroth was announced before LBP1 was even released, and has yet to come out.


+ kingfoot on June 26th, 2010 at 11:33 am said:

How long does it take to actually make the costumes? Like, man-hours wise. I’ve always wondered about the production time. And what’s abouts the entire timeline from the idea, to the gathering of the rights to release, the making of, and finally the release? Seems like if you had a dedicated team you could really churn out a lot of new and interesting costumes that don’t even have to be licensed. I would like to see more mythology type costumes!

Also, why can’t we have a PS3 controller in our sackboy hands!? Seems like that should have been an object from the very start, included in the game already!!


+ zahirani on June 26th, 2010 at 11:55 am said:

Sorry scarforce I got to disagree with you (not because he’s my favorite character) but because of almost every hero In the west coast avengers. Ever heard of big bertha, she’s one of the worst in my mind. Besides that I wanted to ask mark, do ukno if this was the only characters mm is gonna make ever or if the deal warrants more costumes later on.

ok. some good costumes there, i’ll be sure to get some of em…
however, ‘Invisible Woman’?
don’t really know marvel too well, just heard of names like wolverine, hulk, spiderman, the main ones like..
surely, this costume has to be invisible? (i can only presume she’s invisible, would make sense)
how exactly are we gunna no where we are in a level or whether we’re inches away from falling into a pit of fire for example if we can’t see ourselves? or is that the challenge of it all?
