LittleBigPlanet 2

While we’re entertaining the crowds at San Diego Comic Con this week with a peek at LBP2 and some free shirts.  We have some great news…

Over at camp Media MoleculeLittleBigPlanet 2 has just passed “Alpha”! Yay!  And while we still have a ton of work to do, we’re that much closer to release and we’re ready to announce some news you’ve all been waiting, so on behalf of our retail partners and our friends at Disney…here we go…

First things first…“When is LittleBigPlanet 2 coming out?” – You’ll be pleased to know we’re on schedule to have LBP2 out in stores on November 16th, just in time for the holidays.  So whether you plan to be there on Day 1 or need to put it on your big holiday ‘wishlist’, rest assured, LBP2 will be here soon.

Next item on the list…”Will there be any pre-order items?” – We’re glad you asked!  YES, we have several exciting pre-order offers through several retail partners.  Each pre-order consists of 2 parts – a very special costume offer from our partners @ Disney / Pixar and Insomniac; and 4 new “Even More Animals” costumes.  That’s 5-6 different LBP2 costumes just for pre-ordering LBP2.  Here’s a sneak peek of a few pre-order programs coming
soon to our US retailers:

Amazon.com – If you’re a fan of the Ratchet & Clank franchise (who isn’t), you’ll love this.  Pre-order at Amazon.com and get 6 Sackboy costumes including exclusive access to Ratchet & Clank costumes from the ever popular Ratchet & Clank franchise.  In addition to the exclusive 2 costumes, you’ll get four new “Animals” costumes, for a total of 6 costumes.

BestBuy & BestBuy.com – All together now…”the claw!!!”  We’ve partnered with Disney & Pixar to provide the exclusive “Aliens” costume for BestBuy pre-orderers.  We can already imagine the number of uses you guys will use this costume combined with the new Sackbots feature.  And be on the lookout for more characters thru an upcoming Toy Story 3 DLC in the near future.  Plus the 4 costumes from “Even More Animals”

GameStop & GameStop.com – Are you as excited for the release of TRON: Legacy as we are?  If so, head on over to GameStop and pre-order to get the exclusive *Clu* Sackboy costume from Tron: Legacy. Be the first to have this costume and hold tight for more TRON: Legacy costumes later this year.  And again, you also get the 4 different “Even More Animals” costumes.

AND MORE TO COME!  – Stay tuned as we announce more pre-order programs like this special DLC package including one of our favorite Muppets – GONZO!  There’s no doubt you’ll have fun exploring the many areas in LBP2, with bent nose and all.  And keep an eye out for more Muppets costumes shortly after launch via the PlayStation Store.

What else…”PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE tell me you guys are offering a Collectors Edition” – OK, OK, good news is YES, we’re offering a Collector’s Edition of LittleBigPlanet 2 in the US, bad news is it’ll be a limited run, so you better pre-order soon to ensure you get one.

Wow great collector’s edition. This is the first time ive ever seen a collector’s edition have contain enough to make it worth it for me to shell out some extra bucks. WHoever you hired to put it together did a fantastic job and maybe you should get them on organizing collector’s editions for other games cause some of them suck.

I especially like the sackboy plushie and the “game ends” but all the extra costumes are awesome as well. I shall go out and preorder today!

I plan on making a nice altar looking setup with the game ends, sackboy and other cool playstation stuff Ive collected over the years above my fireplace. Cheers!

Seriously this is the BEST news I have heard in a while! Thanks for taking time out from Comic Con to respond, Mark!!

@vorax it’s only early access isn’t it.


+ Spyroluver88 on July 23rd, 2010 at 11:00 am said:

@ 99 – NoobianGod

There are 6 plushies already available on Amazon…some Toys R Us stores had some as well. Hope it helps you :-D


+ scoobycool on July 23rd, 2010 at 11:01 am said:

On Amazon.ca it doesn’t show the Ratchet & Clank pre-order contest. If I pre-order from there, will I get the skins?


+ scoobycool on July 23rd, 2010 at 11:02 am said:

Ops, I mean pre-order skins, not contest.


+ liketoski on July 23rd, 2010 at 11:03 am said:

OMFG!!! November 16 is my Birthday!!!!!!!!! Thank you for this amazing surprise!!!!!


+ Meanie_Moo on July 23rd, 2010 at 11:03 am said:

Heck yeah! I look forward to hearing of the items that come with the Canadian retail product.


+ Art_of_Ronin on July 23rd, 2010 at 11:04 am said:

@ #157 scoobycool

Just wait until Amazon.ca start soliciting the Collector’s Edition. Don’t jump the gun on pre-ordering what you see now. The Collector’s Edition sums up with everything you get from Amazon.com, BestBuy.com and Gamestop.com regular edition pre-order and you get more too! So wait and have patience my grasshopper..LOL.. ~__^


+ shrimpdude on July 23rd, 2010 at 11:10 am said:

I’m gonna have to preorder 2 copies of that special edition!!


+ marlyt on July 23rd, 2010 at 11:10 am said:

Finally a Collector’s Edition worth ordering. You rock Mm!!!!


+ kowan on July 23rd, 2010 at 11:22 am said:

question, when and where can i preorder this GODLY KSLHGLKBS COLLECTOR’s EDITION?!!


+ MONCKYZ on July 23rd, 2010 at 11:33 am said:

will the pre-order costumes be released in the psn store like the nariko and kratos pre-orders, because I really want the jak and daxter costumes but I don’t want to spend 20 extra dollars for the collectors edition


+ Seasong on July 23rd, 2010 at 11:33 am said:

I have a US-addressed PSN account on my PS3, which logs into the US version of Home and stuff, so I guess I’m on their servers. Does this mean DLC codes from the US CE will work on that account? :O
OH GOD, PLEASE SAY IT DOES. Otherwise just release that godly offering to us European mortals. That’s good too.


+ Art_of_Ronin on July 23rd, 2010 at 11:35 am said:

@ #164 kowan

You can pre-order the LBP2 Collector’s Edition now at Amazon.com RIGHT NOW!


+ Zarxce on July 23rd, 2010 at 11:37 am said:

When you say US, does that mean Canada is excluded? Normally it’s “North American release” or something. I live in Vancouver, but would REALLY love to get me that collectors edition….


+ TapDatApp on July 23rd, 2010 at 11:40 am said:

When and where can I pre-order the Collectors Edition? NEED.IT.NOW. THIS IS SO AMAZING! THANKS MEDIA MOLECULE, I LOVE YOU! <3 :D


+ zekececil14 on July 23rd, 2010 at 11:44 am said:

LittleBigPlanet needs to do FPS, First Person SackBoy. Also i like the word Plushie, go ahead say it a couple times.


+ Yuengman24 on July 23rd, 2010 at 11:53 am said:

That’s an awesome collector’s edition…a definite pre-order!


+ arcane93 on July 23rd, 2010 at 11:54 am said:

When you say that all DLC is backwards compatible . . . What about the DLC included on the disc with the LPB GOTY edition, for those of us who bought that? Will there be a way to import it over?


+ sefjwm on July 23rd, 2010 at 11:54 am said:



+ footballrule on July 23rd, 2010 at 12:10 pm said:

WOW! This is big news! So many good games coming out for the holidays!! :)


+ GuitarinGuy89 on July 23rd, 2010 at 12:17 pm said:

Will the new Marvel level pack work on LBP2? I noticed that it used the 50 layer glitch.


+ EkoluChin on July 23rd, 2010 at 12:21 pm said:

Oh wow! That’s awesome! I would so plunk down $80 on that beautiful collecter’s edition if it came to Canada. The physical media alone is more than worth the $20 :D!

Of course, here in Quebec, the VAT is tear inducing, but still! Make it come here MediaMolecule :D!


+ iHowiz on July 23rd, 2010 at 12:37 pm said:

Just to clarify things: will the old DLCs (I bought quite a lot :D) work with LBP 2?


+ Israel1948 on July 23rd, 2010 at 12:38 pm said:

Where is our Cloud and Sephiroth add ons!?


+ XxNo0b_H8rxX on July 23rd, 2010 at 12:39 pm said:

Can you guys bring the invisible floating floor glitch back, cause that glitch was just too fun


+ Permafry_42 on July 23rd, 2010 at 12:40 pm said:

will us codes work on the canada store?


+ mew_frenger on July 23rd, 2010 at 12:48 pm said:

tnx for reply…
i will stay tuned


+ Justp94 on July 23rd, 2010 at 12:51 pm said:

So, Is Amazon the only Retailer for Collector’s Edition? Because to be honest… I’d rather pre-order it from BestBuy or GameStop instead….


+ Solid-Snake-Eyes on July 23rd, 2010 at 12:56 pm said:

Please tell us if the Collector’s Edition will be sold in Canada.


+ Mangochirp on July 23rd, 2010 at 1:00 pm said:

Will LBP2 have PS move support?


+ TwinDad on July 23rd, 2010 at 1:01 pm said:

So can we expect even more Disney DLC?

I hate pre-order. I hate Collectors Editions. Nothing but a sham.

I just pre-ordered the LBP2 CE from Amazon. It would be nice to have a few more simple levels for my kids. I’ve been making levels for them, but it takes time to design something for them. But we both enjoy it.

LBP2 Beta for PSN+??????


+ x_Lava_x on July 23rd, 2010 at 1:02 pm said:

I was able to pre-order the collector’s edition from Amazon just wanted to guarantee that I got one haha.


+ PataponKiller on July 23rd, 2010 at 1:10 pm said:

This has got to be the grestest collectors edition ever! Will the collectors edition be availie in Canada?


+ zekececil14 on July 23rd, 2010 at 1:10 pm said:

That collectors edition looks so awesome, I was torn between where to pre-order, but then I saw the the collectors edition had them all, now I know im definitely getting the collectors edition! I love all the content in the CE, the plushie of sackboy is great, im gonna love having that around, I always wanted one. The bookends look sweet and its an all around awesome package, I was not expecting a CE for lbp2, but now that its been announced, you guys have my money!


+ BalramRules on July 23rd, 2010 at 1:41 pm said:

only if the EU got this content X(


+ Andrefpvs on July 23rd, 2010 at 1:42 pm said:

I have an idea. How about you offer us a LBP1 cover with the new PS3 branding in the Collector’s Edition?

It would be great so one cover doesn’t look out of place in the bookend. :)


+ HaHaHanif on July 23rd, 2010 at 1:44 pm said:

preordered =)


+ Ropiplup on July 23rd, 2010 at 1:53 pm said:
