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: – If you’re a fan of the Ratchet & Clank franchise (who isn’t), you’ll love this.  Pre-order at 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 & – 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 & – 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.

+ iceychill56 on August 4th, 2010 at 2:51 pm said:

Im sure excited about this game, but why didnt you guys just put all the costumes in each pre-ordered game. I was kind of turned off that you only the animals and 1 or 2 exclusives. It seems that we now buy less for more.


+ Paxjah on August 5th, 2010 at 7:23 am said:

I hope the collector’s edition pre-order release date comes soon..and all of those fabulous goodies will be available with it!

+ xXSiilent_AMMOXx on August 6th, 2010 at 6:20 pm said:

So many beggers for the BETA. Chill out and wait to see if there will be one and wait to see what the requirements will be to take part. Posting here will do nothing to get you into the potential Beta.

Anyway I will definitely be pre-ordering the collectors edition.


+ Torterzuko on August 7th, 2010 at 1:53 am said:

I hope collectors edition really comes in europe because I wait months to get GOTY Edition here in finland.


+ americanseb on August 7th, 2010 at 11:07 am said:

Hello i got 2 questions.
First Is there any change that the Collectors edition will be available in EU?

Please answer as fast as possible.

Pfft, I dont care about the DLC’s at the moment, all I wanna know if the Collector’s Edition will be available in Canada and at what retailors. Once that info is handed out(if it is) then i will preorder the first second i see Canada is having it. That oughta be mine, i really dont think any would even be left in the states by this point in time

+ x23oscy23x on August 11th, 2010 at 5:08 am said:

Looks awesome! Also, do you plan to make a LBP2 for PSP (If yes, when would it approx come out?)? I really hope you do because it looks like the best game ever! And if it does come out for PSP will you do the same collectors edition (or atleast similar) for it? I’m sure it would make a lot of people happy aswell as me! (I agree infinete I am going to be bankrupt!)


+ KBB117 on August 11th, 2010 at 6:23 pm said:

Most 15 year olds stay up till dawn, playing modern warfare 2. Me and my friends are gonna be up playing the Collectors edition I just pre-ordered till we all pass-out.


+ iSlayer3000 on August 11th, 2010 at 10:50 pm said:

Hi I was just wondering when it will be available to preorder in New Zealand? Since I cant ship it from the US because of the regional code


+ LUNATIC_ALIC on August 12th, 2010 at 11:56 am said:

+ Davis539 on August 13th, 2010 at 7:24 pm said:

I’m GETTING the collector’s edition! There is nothing that will change my mine. Gonzo, my own Sackboy, and even more Muppets (plus Toy Story 3, and Tron)! LBP is going Disney!


+ firefoxH2O on August 14th, 2010 at 8:59 am said:

+ MrNachoz on August 16th, 2010 at 1:22 pm said:

I’m definately pre-ordering LBP2 Collector’s Edition. I was just gonna pre-order the game on for the Ratchet and Clank stuff, but I love Jak and Daxter, too! The extra $10-$15 bucks is worth it if I get to have it before most of my friends! :D


+ SupaBatman on August 16th, 2010 at 6:38 pm said:
