Mark Valledor's Avatar + Posted by Mark Valledor on Aug 27, 2010 // Marketing Manager, SCEA

First off, thanks to all our LittleBigPlanet Creators! We’ve officially reached 3 million levels online. LBP fans FTW!

Packin’ for PAX

We’re neck deep in preparing for next week’s PAX (aka Penny Arcade Expo), a big gaming event in Seattle. While we’re at it, we wanted to send an early invite for you to come out and hang with us at PAX. We’ll have tons of activities, including:

  • PLAY new Story mode levels
  • CREATE in our hands-on Community Corner
  • SHARE Central: Ask us any question and we’ll answer it!
  • Sackboy PLUSHIES for sale!
  • Photo ops with our larger-than-life Sackboy
  • …and T-shirt GIVEAWAYS throughout the day.

LittleBigPlanet 2 at PAX: t-shirt

Drop by during PAX (September 3 – 5) and look for us at booth #112. You can’t miss us!

Lots of community goodness from our ever-loving fans and fan sites.

  • More awesome LittleBigPlanet Contraptions from our EU sister community forum challenge…

And finally…

Let’s see YOUR drawings! Include a link in the comments below. Who knows? You might get some goodies from us…

I made a sweet scratch print of SackBoy. I have to get that uploaded some how!

I had to use a carving tool to scratch each individual stitch, arm, leg, etc.. onto plexi-glass. Then I had to ink it and put it on to a printing press. I put paper on top, rolled it, and BAM! SackBoy was alive.

Goodies for the description? I will do my best to get it uploaded!

Hi, I wanted to know if in LBP2 in ONLINE multiplayer camera will be still attach to the 4 players gaming area, or if it’s going to be individual to each person who is playing.
This is very important for racing, what happens if one player doesnt have the same pace than the others, will the camera just follow the party leader?

Thanks

CONGRATS ON 3 MILLION LEVELS!!

Any update yet on if you guys are down with doing something with us adult DMLC winners? We just got the OK from HASTAC to build the levels in LBP2 so I am holding off until November ;-)

If anyone wants to check it out–my personal winning entry teaches Science, Technology, Engineering and Math through the use of thrill rides and roller coasters–currently have 2 levels online for that now:

Discovery Pier (winning level)
A Taste of What’s To Come (showcases some tech demo rides and rejected rides for the pack we’re building).

BTW Mark PLEASE get these new shirts into Hot Topic! I’d buy that zipper one in a heartbeat!

Will there be any way for me, in Australia, to get one of those plushies? I have been looking EVERYWHERE for 2 years now and cannot find any decently-sized official sackboy plushies. Now that I think of it, what size will they be.

+ df2506 on August 27th, 2010 at 9:11 pm said:

Wow! I keep hearing about how many amazing things will be at PAX (LBP2, the new Ratchet & Clank, cool Nintendo games, etc) and I wish I could go….*sigh*

Question though: the blog will be covering all the cool PS3 events (LBP2, RC, etc) right? With lots of video coverage like Gamescon. Sure hope so!

Oh and that shirt is cool. :)

Anyway, got my LBP2 collector’s edition pre-ordered. I’m looking forward to this game a lot.

Also, will PS+ get into the beta? that would be very good and also show PS+ is at least worth it.

For those asking for LBP 2 CE for Canada…you can order from Amazon USA and they will ship to Canada. Although it ends up being a little expensive at $98.57 US, then convert to CAD when your credit card gets charged.

I ordered it already, but am seriously hoping I can get it for cheaper in Canada and cancel my preorder in the states.


32

+ Nomik2 on August 27th, 2010 at 10:20 pm said:

I should probably mention why its expensive if you ship to Canada, here’s the bill:

-Subtotal of Items: $79.99
-Shipping & Handling: $8.98
-Import Fees Deposit $9.60
-Total for this Order: $98.57

Not to mention the ridiculously late receipt:

-Delivery Estimate: November 30, 2010 – December 10, 2010

Will that sack boy shirt with the zipper go on sale in stores?

I -NEED- to know about the LBP2 Collector’s Edition for Canada.

If I miss out on it because you’re dragging your feet on saying, ‘yes’ or ‘no’ directly about it then I will stop supporting SCE as much as I currently do.

If it’s coming, tell me where I can get it. Otherwise, give us Canadians some time to secure it from the US.

3 million? Fantastic! I feel great pride in helping out!

Sadness I won’t be getting a t-shirt. Is there somewhere I could buy one? I bought that shirt in Home but would love a real one!

Good news everyone (In Canada)!

I checked with my local EB again and they now have a preorder SKU for the LBP2 CE… Which probably means they’re getting it. So check with your nearest EB!

I’m so glad I preordered the standard edition at EB as a placeholder… They have let me move my preorder over to the Collectors Edition and now say I’m guaranteed to be getting one… YEY!

Littlebigplanet 2 is gonna be amazing! This will be Game Of The Year for sure! I already pre-ordered the CE! (Thanks Sony for making it available in Canada!) As for the drawings I’ve drawn quite a bit! Actually I’m working on a LittleBigPlanet comic/manga series!

Here are some character designs:

I’m also thinking about making a level series based on the comic/manga series called “The Fall of LittleBigPlanet”!

Here is some concept sketches. (They’re a little dark.):

http://img638.imageshack.us/i/littlebigplanetartwork2.jpg/

I also made a poster based on “The Fall of LittleBigPlanet” level series. You probably can’t tell from the image but the poster is quite large and took me more that 5 hours to sketch out, and ink. (This image looks best if viewed in full resolution. When its scaled it looks squished)

I hope you guys at Sony, and MediaMolecule like them!

Did you have any links in your post, if that’s the case then that’s the cause of the moderation, just put an asterix in your link, and say to remove them. My post has many links and this solved the problem, if this isn’t the problem then I have no idea.
