Haters on the blog – Confirmed!

LMAO Mark Valledor just made my year. That line should be common rhetoric for any Playstation related site.

I have a serious question! Please help!

I have the CE pre-ordered the moment it became available to pre-order in Canada, but I don`t feel easy about it as I`m scared I won`t get all the pre-order goodies.

You see, the EB Games I pre-ordered it from gave away one of my pre-order items to a random customer before. The clerk told me their new managers policy is to just give away whatever pre-order stuff comes in the boxes to ALL the customers that walk in their store. Now I`m scared that when the time comes, they`ll give away my Sackboy plushie and costume vouchers.

So my question is, if they give away my LBP2 CE stuff, who do I go to?

Im sure this was covered before but. . Will the costume packs/add-ons carry over? How will it work? If you can say. .

@Feral_Dragon #104 I Had This Problem Before with game stop stores near me the guy at the store is usualy steeling the pre order goodies to sell online. so stand up for your rights an refuse no less than sadasfaction a full refund since they could not fulfill the order of idems you paid for and go buy it on line through game stop or any other wellknow game dealers and you should have no problem getting your preorder goodies this is now what i do.

Just preordered the CE. Price looks solid for what’s included. Much better than other CE’s IMO. Everything I’ve seen so far looks amazing… can’t wait to play!

Final Art is much better than the previous box art. Good job MM.

Wow, I really wasn’t interested in this game, but along with that sexy box art and the free Move game coming next week, I’m seriously considering the collector’s edition on release date!

This game does support 3D right? It doesn’t really state it on the boxart… which is dissapointing

    Sorry, no 3D this time around.

@103: The demo comes on the 22nd of December. The game comes on the 18th of January. You have two birthdays?
@122: Sexy boxart? Oooooooooooookaaaaaaay. Not awkward one bit.
@118: I thought a guy named Ashley was the narrator. Hm. I think Kevin Butler should do it.

@106: Agreed.

Please make the sackboy that comes with the collectors exactly like the sackboy should be its looks different in the picture i first saw it looked like its wasnt sackboy at all like on the cover. another thing please dont make the trophie so hard the heart one last time was annoying but the others were fair. allow us to change the color of the costumes that would be sweet instead of one color and then haven to stick your self with stickers i mean stickers are cool but some didnt look right. also the pop up lasso thing that you use to change your costume we want different colors or where we can change our own color because there really wasnt many selections and we want variety or our own mix an match colors

What’s inside the collector’s Edition ? And how much it will cost?

I have a question. Why is there Christmas wrapping for the ps3 if this game comes in January? You were giving me false hopes there… I taught LBP2 was coming out for December… would’ve got it… such a shame… :’(

Have had this prepaid since it was announced…the CE edition.

Plus, the 22nd is my birthday. I hope the demo is substantial enough to be play-over-and-over-again material, because that’s what I plan on doing.

+ Schrader4 on December 2nd, 2010 at 5:14 pm said:

Got access to the beta from an IRL friend who didn’t want their code, and I have to ask something – why January 18? There are only a few minor bugs, and I have a hard time thinking they could take that long to fix them.

Gonna be GREAT! Can you buy that wrapping paper, or does it come with the collector’s edition?

I lost my LBP save data when my PS3 exploded and I had to get a new one, will there be any way to get all my LBP1 unlocks unlocked again? I really dont want to have to 100% ace every level in the first one again just to get building materials when I have a Platinum on LBP 1 as proof of my past endeavors…

But the beta was pretty awesome up until I found that out! Thanks

Hey, Mark! I have seen in various areas that the Beta invites for next week are for more random LBP Contributers/ Players, but yet I have also heard that this batch of invites are for just PS+ members… Any clarification? I’m not too concerned, considering the demo in the next few weeks! Also, does the demo share the same servers as the beta? I would really love to play some of the awesome levels the beta members have configured! Thanks again! You guys are doing a great job! Keep it up!

Is there only the one collector’s edition? I pre-ordered at Gamestop and they can’t give me any specific info on it. Just want to make sure I get the big box and not just the “Gamestop exclusive costume” or whatever.

I don’t know who to contact for costume ideas or even if they are taken into consideration but I think a Daft Punk and Deadmau5 costume set would be beyond cool.
