LittleBigPlanet 2 Goes Gold, First Review is a 10, PSN Demo Today, Storyline Trailer

Eric Levine's Avatar + Posted by Eric Levine on Dec 21, 2010 // SCEA PR Manager

Now that 2010 is drawing to close, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all our fantastic community members, as well as all of our friends in the media who continue to support LittleBigPlanet. We’re now less than a month away from our January 18th release and I’m thrilled to report that LittleBigPlanet 2 has now ‘gone gold,’ meaning the game is 100% finished! The wait is nearly over and as you might imagine the folks at Media Molecule are extremely excited.

New Storyline Trailer!
I’m sure you’ve seen all of the videos for LittleBigPlanet 2 and enjoyed learning about all of the new gameplay elements in the game. Well, we have another great trailer for you, especially for those fans out there who fell in love with Sackboy’s adventure, the cast of characters, and the world of the first LittleBigPlanet. Check it out above.

First Review!
The next piece of good news is that LittleBigPlanet 2 reviews are starting to come in. Online reviews won’t be posted until after the new year, but print magazine impressions will trickle in over the next few weeks and that started this week with our first worldwide review from the UK’s Official PlayStation Magazine — an impressive 10 out of 10! Here are a few choice quotes…

“Full of simple-to-grasp tools, all with huge potential—and you could easily lose more time to LBP2 than any other game released in 2011.”

“Never going to build anything at all? This is still an indispensible package, rammed with creative potential and imaginative gameplay.”

Free Demo Today!
Don’t forget that the LittleBigPlanet 2 Story Mode Demo will be available on the PlayStation Store later today. Here’s your chance to experience a few of the new gameplay additions, like the Grapple Hook and Sackbots, and also meet some of the new characters who will be joining you on your epic Sack-quest.

Great game, had a blast beta testing it since September. It truly is an amazing game and I can’t wait for 1.18.

I’m assuming there’s no point in getting this if we have the BETA.

    The demo will include three story levels, but won’t include CREATE or allow for online PLAY, so it’s a different experience from the beta, it’s definitely worth checking out both. The demo will allow four player co-op on the same PS3.

Really amazing to read/hear LBP 2 has gone gold. Oh man it is really looking so good for today’s PSN Store Update. LittleBigPlanet was an amazing game, and the second game is truly improved. I am really going to try the demo. Thank you.

The LBP 2 beta has been such a thrill ride. I will still download the demo today and play (though I’m sure its a lot of the same as the beta) and I cant wait until I pick up my collectors edition come Jan. 18th!

Sony has it covered from Jan. to Dec. 2011. This is going to be a great year for my PS3 (but not my bank account :/).

So the UK Official PlayStation Magazine gave a Sony first party title a perfect score. Well, at least you didn’t have to pay for that one right?

I’m deciding if I should cancel my preorder of 2 since distribution of beta keys were unjust and plain insulting.

I understand the first round of codes were given to people based on how they played and purchased DLC. When I didn’t get one I was fine with it as I knew there were LBP extremists with the platinum trophy and all DLC purchased, not to mention those that made those amazing levels.
The second round was also based on how much you played the game and the dlc you purchased(it was mentioned on the blog a few LBP posts ago). Sid said there were distributed randomly though but someone on the blog from MM said otherwise. One of my friends received the invite. It turns out he’s only played the game a couple of times while I have countless hours into the game. Not to mention he has bought absolutely no dlc at all while I have purchased 35$ of dlc! His trophy progress is 22% while mine is 75%!
I can’t contently buy LBP2 knowing that I couldn’t even get a beta key for it considering all the hours I put into the first game I’d call myself an LBP loyalist, but now not so much

I wonder what is the best sequel ever, and how far away LBP2 comes to overthrowing it. I don’t know if I’d even want a LBP 3 cause I can’t think of much that i’d like to do, that this game wouldn’t provide… Maybe when the PS4 hits like 4 years from now…

It’s not that often that you’ll get a game that is so critically acclaimed, then the sequel comes out to top everything that the previous game did, raising the bar to unprecedented levels, and pretty much gives people almost everything they asked for.

Can anyone come up with stuff they’d want to see in LBP3? From everything I’ve seen, there’s not much I can really say I’d ask for.

+ SykoTech on December 21st, 2010 at 12:47 pm said:

Wow. I didn’t think the Storyline would be a reason for me to look forward to LBP2, but that trailer sold it very well.

Can’t wait to give the demo a spin.

And this is coming just in time for my son’s 4th birthday, he loves watching LBP. Any idea if the Sackboy plush packed in with the collector’s edition is rugged enough to withstand a 4 year old? :)

Today you have made the BEST UPDATE EVER!!!

I know that repeating these updates weekly is almost a dream… but i think this is the way you should keep going FTW!!

And a question… What is the difference between LBP2 DEMO & LBP2 BETA?

It’s enough with beta?
