Please don’t copy-protect the game save files! Lock them to PSN IDs, if you must do anything of the sort.

Is the US collectors edition going to have a metal case? I would love a metal case.

Pre-order months ago, can’t wait!!!!

Please say the trophies aren’t as challenging, I cannot and will never get the trophies for my levels getting hearted, played, etc. because they suck, please make those trophies easier if they are included

Please tell me I can still pre-order the collector’s edition! This game looks so amazing!

    Of course you can, but you better hurry. Last I looked Collectors Edition pre-orders is getting pretty close to our limited quantity.


+ SamuraiSaxen on December 2nd, 2010 at 2:14 pm said:

Next week beta invites coming out for playstation plus subscribers, right?

I understand it’s only for select PS+ suscribers. My question is: Do I have a chance to get a Beta invitation next week if I have a Mexican PS+ account? It will be dissapointing if only select US PS+ accounts are ellegible >.>

I wasn’t hating. Just speaking the truth. Am I wrong? Hopefully the 2 month delay for this was justified, but I guess we will all find out in January won’t we?

    I know, just joking with you.

    Curious on when you last played LBP, there was an update (go figure) that really fixed early issues with multiplayer.

    We haven’t seen issues on the LBP2 beta, so hopefully these address your concerns.

Does the sackboy hold an actual controller? Is that the one that comes with the collector’s edition?

    + Mark Valledor on December 2nd, 2010 at 2:28 pm said:

    No, that Sackboy image is a licensed product sold out of the UK. The collectors edition includes a plush Sackboy.


+ cobrafang on December 2nd, 2010 at 2:25 pm said:

Please have the servers working flawlessly when this game release in January. Please don’t say “we didn’t expect such a surge of players day one.” This is a massive game release for PS3, be prepared for the huge numbers of players day one, please. Thank you.

LittleBigPlanet 2 is a fantastic opening for the great line-up of games Sony has planned for 2011

Will the Collectors Edition be available in the US stores like say Walmart?

Because I want my own lil Sackboy Plushie but I do not have a credit card D:

If we cannot get the christmas wrapping paper, could you have a High-Res version of it somewhere so we can print our own ? :)

+ Tomm4118 on December 2nd, 2010 at 2:44 pm said:

Before I say anything, I feel compeled to mention that I’m absolutely 100 percent in LOVE with this game. No other game has ever made me wait in such agony for a chance to play.

But… What was wrong with the old Box Art Cover. I REALLY liked it! And although it sounds cheezy, the old Box Art Cover was just a huge selling point for me!

It combbinded the pefect ballance of composition, charm, and LBP’s design to make probably the best cover I’ve ever seen. I’m not saying that this cover is bad, it’s just not as good as the original.


+ Destiny89 on December 2nd, 2010 at 2:48 pm said:

Cant wait, will LBP2 have dedicated servers? plz say yes


+ Kreutznaer on December 2nd, 2010 at 2:49 pm said:

What’s the point of the wrapping paper if the game’s due to January? I wanted it to come before January, because that’s when I’ll be there in the US. Games in Brazil are almost thrice the price.


+ crowsticky1234 on December 2nd, 2010 at 2:50 pm said:

Really can’t wait, I feel like making sketches before I create my own level on this planet. Got LBP for the PSP, I haven’t played it for a while but this can make me download it again.


+ PaperSpock on December 2nd, 2010 at 2:51 pm said:

Your previous blog update concerning LBP2 (the one on Nov. 18) did not make it expressly clear that the beta would not be sent out to all PlayStation+ subscribers. I bought a subscription based upon the notion that having a PlayStation+ subscription would get me a beta invite. Unless your intention is convince people to become members based upon potentially misleading statements, I’d appreciate it if when you mention an upcoming bonus for PlayStation+ members, you would clearly state whether or not it applies to all members.


+ flamedragon20 on December 2nd, 2010 at 2:53 pm said:

Do ALL playstation plus members get the beta.


+ loadstone007 on December 2nd, 2010 at 2:53 pm said:

I’ve been eager to pre-order the collector’s edition, but I can’t find it anywhere in Europe (Zavvi, Shopto, Game etc.).

HELP! :(


+ Vex_Doppel on December 2nd, 2010 at 2:53 pm said:

So I’d like to see some PS costumes and objects.
Twisted Metal, Uncharted, Warhawk, Gran Turismo, Sly Cooper, and Kevin Butler to name a few.


+ AcesZERO-RAZGRIZ on December 2nd, 2010 at 2:54 pm said:

ive asked a couple times on the blogs but i guess ive missed you guys for responses but,
i pre-ordered the game before the release change, did that cancel my pre-order or does it carry over to the new date?

    + Mark Valledor on December 2nd, 2010 at 3:11 pm said:

    It should carry over, but I’d check with the store to make sure.


+ loadstone007 on December 2nd, 2010 at 2:56 pm said:

Oh, what about a music video featuring Sackboy?
I’m also really looking to buy Sackboy accessories like t-shirts, mugs etc… but are nowhere to be found.

Mark, I must say in regards to comment #45: well played, sir. I realize you all made nice later but it was nice to see a blogger show some “sack” for once. Beta please. Merry Christmas.

Can I get the length and height of the Colector’s Edition box?


+ judalation on December 2nd, 2010 at 3:03 pm said:

Simply put … THIS WILL BE THE GREATEST GAME OF ALL TIME!!!! LBP 1 has more content than any other game I have ever bought… and this game will crush it in terms of abilities… in addition to making a few movies I am also going to create a move enabled starcraft recreation. And nice one exposing the “HATERSSS” Mark!

OMG I can’t wait for my CE!! Such a cool CE box!
Sweet wrapping paper! Nothing like Playstation Official Licensed wrapping paper to top off the holidays.
Can you have Kevin Butler do the intro this time, but as a video?

Pre-order LBP2 – Done


+ DragonNutz on December 2nd, 2010 at 3:08 pm said:

I sure would like an invite.

I’ve been a Playstation Plus subscriber from the start and haven’t gotten one beta invite since. I have all things in order (marketing options ticked) and my info is up-to-date. I’ve seen so many people that have gotten into so many betas and I haven’t. I thought that was a promise. I know it was a factor in my becoming a subscriber. I just hope I’ll get at least a couple invites. That would be nice.


+ Delta-16 on December 2nd, 2010 at 3:09 pm said:

LOL Sackboy costume looks like forever alone guy. Can ppl that preorder the collector’s edition get beta invite? That would be a great X-mas gift since the game kinda comes out after. plz?


+ dragonleader33 on December 2nd, 2010 at 3:09 pm said:

Has the online voice chat quality improved. A lot of drop in and outs and not being able to hear people completely is sort of an issue when your trying to do specific tasks, IE gathering all the prize bubbles.


+ Alpha-Male22 on December 2nd, 2010 at 3:09 pm said:

The demo is coming out on my birthday too!

I love you guys, glad the title got pushed to ensure quality and give it the proper attention it deserves.

Any chance of split-screen for local MP? I’m a little worried how individual tracking in certain levels will work if I have to share a screen.


+ Permafry_42 on December 2nd, 2010 at 3:10 pm said:

First off wanna say i’m a HUGE fan of lbp. The main reason i got the ps eye was for using it in lbp,and the reason i got a move controller recently was so that i could use it in prehistoric moves. I also got psn+ primarily to try to get in to the lbp2 beta early. I preordered the lbp2 collectors edition the day after it was announced, and i still play Lbp a lot.

Anyways, Can you please look at my ps blog idea called “LBP.ME User page customization”?


Thank MM, and i can’t wait to play, create, and share even more!


+ fijski8 on December 2nd, 2010 at 3:10 pm said:

Awesome. And the Beta is almost perfect now. Should be ready in time for Jan. np.

Where can you get the Wrapping Paper from?


+ Bcrichmark on December 2nd, 2010 at 3:36 pm said:

Heres a sugestion That is a curent issue i and other creators have with LBP. When you publish a level and make it copiable you can not stop any one from publishing it over and over again. WHY NOT MAKE AN OPTION THAT LETS IT BECOME COPYABLE BUT NOT ABLE TO RE PUBLISH AS THERE OWN!! This is an issue. I Mean you tell people we now have over 3,000,000 user created levels but fail to tell people that 500 are 3d glitch tool levels, or The Bunker , Or The Little Big Star Wars, Or The Level That Plays Itself 4, And even my simpsons level at one time i counted over 45 copies before i gave up counting them. I Made my simpsons level copyable to help other learn what i did and so they could play it on there own from there moon not to see it republished 45+ times and have to fight with other people who clame i stole there level. THIS IS SOMTHING I THINK NEEDS TO BE ADDRESED. I WANT TO PLAY, CREATE & Share but i dont want to share if it means my level will be republished 100 times and sume snot nosed kidd wants to call me a thief for coping his level i Made?!*%# Please RSVP Can You Fix This Issue????


+ I3rand0 on December 2nd, 2010 at 3:43 pm said:

What are you apologizing for?

All I was doing was pointing out well known facts about the first game that, to the best of my knowledge, will probably hold true for the sequel.

To answer your question, the last time I played LBP was July 2009. Was the MP patched again after that date? In addition, thank you for taking the time to respond to my comments as I know that is not the policy per the mothership in Santa Monica.


+ Zezzler on December 2nd, 2010 at 3:43 pm said:

As much as i liked the box art before, this one is REALLY awesome, and just perfectly suited for LBP2. I am going to Pre-order me collectors edition any day now.

I cannot wait to get my hands on the full game. the new beta update just made me that much more excited for it!

Mm, you guys (and gals) plain outright ROCK!
