LittleBigPlanet 2 for PS3

Online Beta Update

For those of you paying attention, you’ve probably heard that LittleBigPlanet 2 beta codes are being distributed. Here’s the skinny: Yes, beta codes are going out. But globally, we’re taking steps to best test our server environment, so we’re distributing beta codes in phases. The first phase of testing started earlier this week with our European LBP community. In a few weeks, we’ll be growing the participant base with US and other countries. More news to come…

Start Featurettes

With so many new features in LittleBigPlanet 2, its impossible to discuss all the new things in one sitting. So we’re introducing a series of LittleBigPlanet 2 Featurettes that highlight some of the many new things you can do in LBP2, such as the new Grappling Hook and the revamped SHARE experience. Stay tuned to the PlayStation.Blog for continuing episodes of LBP2’s Featurettes.

PAX Ends

The dust is still settling from this past weekend’s PAX 2010, and we had a blast seeing all our fans. From watching all the four-player fun, community corner activity (stay tuned next week when we start our “Bloggie” reports), the feverish lines for free Sackboy T-shirts, and the extremely sought after Sackboy plushies. Thanks to all our fans in making PAX 2010 our most memorable yet! And thanks to comphermc, confusedcartman, jaeyden, and morgana25 for hosting our Community Corner.

Here’s a quick glimpse of the fun we had over the weekend:

Mm’s Tom & Spaff right before the doors open

Sackboy plushies for sale!!!….before we sold out

Four-player goodness

And EPIC music sequencer usage

Tweet, Tweet!

We recently “officially” obtained the @LittleBigPlanet Twitter account, and our community managers at Media Molecule have been great at keeping our fans up-to-date on all things LBP. Follow us! (I have a wager that we can get over 100k followers by the end of the month, so please tell your friends and help me win!!!)


And finally: here’s a glimpse of the fun drawings from the previous artwork challenge. Great stuff guys, thanks for putting your links in our comments section!

This week, the challenge is to show us a picture of your in-game Sackboy. We’d love to see how creative you guys have been with the different outfits (I’m still working on my football outfit, but can’t seem to get it right). Add your link to the comments below and we’ll be sure to check it out.

Can’t wait for my Collector’s Edition!
I love the backwards compatiblity for LBP2, so excited to see all my DLC with the new graphcis.
Superb job MM.

Here’s my Sackboy!

oops..try that again.

As a playstation plus member, I expect a 100% garanti beta access. So far I feel tricked. First with Red Faction with its limit beta selection and now no info on the beta of LBP2 for + users.

Sony, I promise this : If I dont have access to the LBP2 i’m not ewnewing and never do again. You tricked me with qore, and now this? enough is enough. Its just false representation at this point.

The grappling hooks are going to be a blast! I want one of the sackboy stuffed toys from PAX! I CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS GAME

Heres Mine Little Big Fan Art :D


+ digitalman123 on September 10th, 2010 at 3:14 pm said:

Can’t wait! Please let me in the beta test!


+ pinkygurl on September 10th, 2010 at 3:21 pm said:

Here is my sackgirl. She is teh cuteness. :D


+ footballrule on September 10th, 2010 at 3:23 pm said:

I live in the US and I have been following LBP2 since it was first released. I hope to get invited to the LBP2 Beta test! :)


+ footballrule on September 10th, 2010 at 3:28 pm said:

The grappling hooks look like a lot of fun! Go SackZan! :D

I can’t wait till November 16th (Or the LBP2 Beta) to try out these new fun gadgets!


+ dzmetcalf on September 10th, 2010 at 3:33 pm said:

Would love to be a part of the new beta.


+ soni2295 on September 10th, 2010 at 3:37 pm said:

hello here is mine:


+ zekececil14 on September 10th, 2010 at 3:38 pm said:

Thank you Mm! The 2nd picture was mine! I was happy to share it to the community, as I put a lot of hard, painstaking work into it. You guys are awesome, and I cant wait for my LittleBigPlanet 2 CE on 11/16/10 (actually 1-5 weeks after November 16th. Dang S+H) I am also excited for my PLUSHIE! I don’t care how old or bitter you are, you CAN NOT look at SackBoy’s smiling face without feeling joy! Now I will have my own REAL SackBoy!

P.S. I have submitted this idea to share but it wasn’t published. There should be a MEGA pod where like 50 SackBoys can just hang out and talk. It could also serve as a way to “Meet Mn’s SackBoys.” What do you think?


+ NURADEEN on September 10th, 2010 at 3:56 pm said:

i wonder if i can use MOVE with my WII emulator on my Ps3…..


+ GooDxAnDxBaD on September 10th, 2010 at 3:59 pm said:

+ wolfzero1 on September 10th, 2010 at 4:16 pm said:

+ Permafry_42 on September 10th, 2010 at 4:18 pm said:

PLEASE let psn+ members and/or qore subscribers get into the beta! also anyone who got a platinum on lbp1 should get in since they deserve in too!

Any chance i can get a beta key for pre ordering the “Supermegaspectacularbeyondbeliefawesomelyinsane” edition?


+ GGod0 on September 10th, 2010 at 5:03 pm said:

+ joeli83cr on September 10th, 2010 at 6:29 pm said:

Here are some of my costumes I made in LBP, and I hope to use in 2 movies that I want to create in LBP2 ;). The Justice Sack League Movie and Sacklice in Wonderland :). I also made a little intro video last year using the first version of my Justice Sack League costumes if you want to see it here is a link to the video and to my custom costume pics.

+ darthlego on September 10th, 2010 at 7:22 pm said:

@74 Speaking about that, shouldn’t they include the PSN IDs of the creators of the art on this post?


+ Monetep on September 10th, 2010 at 7:23 pm said:

The beta would be awesome, but with or without the beta, i’m buying this game :D


+ G-Force08 on September 10th, 2010 at 7:40 pm said:

+ Spoelstra3 on September 10th, 2010 at 7:45 pm said:

Was the short done directly on the game, recording and everything? Plus, I sense a spiderman level coming from the grapple hook.

+ ChriSTFU on September 10th, 2010 at 9:16 pm said:

+ mogwaimon on September 10th, 2010 at 9:20 pm said:

I hope y’all set me up with a code, Sony, you owe me after not giving me any help with my White Knight Chronicles issue where after I bought the game I couldn’t use the online component due to my PSN ID somehow tripping the word filter =P
