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!

@ 99 – NoobianGod

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

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 said:

July 23rd, 11:02 am

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

liketoski said:

July 23rd, 11:03 am

Meanie_Moo 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 said:

July 23rd, 11:10 am

marlyt said:

July 23rd, 11:10 am

kowan said:

July 23rd, 11:22 am

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

MONCKYZ said:

July 23rd, 11:33 am

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 said:

July 23rd, 11:33 am

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.
*sob*

@ #164 kowan

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

Zarxce said:

July 23rd, 11:37 am

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 said:

July 23rd, 11:40 am

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 said:

July 23rd, 11:44 am

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

Yuengman24 said:

July 23rd, 11:53 am

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

arcane93 said:

July 23rd, 11:54 am

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?

footballrule said:

July 23rd, 12:10 pm

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

GuitarinGuy89 said:

July 23rd, 12:17 pm

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

EkoluChin said:

July 23rd, 12:21 pm

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 said:

July 23rd, 12:37 pm

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

Israel1948 said:

July 23rd, 12:38 pm

XxNo0b_H8rxX said:

July 23rd, 12:39 pm

Permafry_42 said:

July 23rd, 12:40 pm

mew_frenger said:

July 23rd, 12:48 pm

Justp94 said:

July 23rd, 12:51 pm

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 said:

July 23rd, 12:56 pm

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

Mangochirp said:

July 23rd, 1:00 pm

Will LBP2 have PS move support?

TwinDad said:

July 23rd, 1:01 pm

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 said:

July 23rd, 1:02 pm

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

PataponKiller said:

July 23rd, 1:10 pm

zekececil14 said:

July 23rd, 1:10 pm

angelspawn77 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 said:

July 23rd, 1:41 pm

AWESOME!
only if the EU got this content X(

Andrefpvs said:

July 23rd, 1:42 pm

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 said:

Ropiplup said:
