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.

Just out of curiosity: Wasn’t the “Tron” steering wheel just a handlebar? The “Clu” costume is holding a wheel. I’m not very familiar with the game, but I thought I’d ask!

this question has been bothering me for a while. will this “exclusive” dlc be released at a later date like the god of war and heavenly sword costumes were? I figure you can only keep good dlc like ratchet and clank costumes “exclusive” for a short time. I’m still gonna get the collector’s edition so i can have that sackboy plushie lol. =)
