@dragonmagician. This is my first CE for a game too! Can’t wait to see it.

The Ratchet & Clank costumes look great. I’m glad they are in the collector’s edition. :)

Nice action trailer. Week 1 t-shirt looks cool. $4.99 seems a bit high, but I’ll probably get it anyway. lol.

I can not wait to get this game! :)

Please, please, please tell us there will be a sale on all the LBP DLC in the PSN store so we can pad our costume collections for LBP2 even more. Please? 50%? PSN+ discount? Anything?

Don’t the Rachet and Clank costumes already come with the collector’s edition?

It does look nice. I just can’t afford it right now.

Media Molecule, please consider PS Home support for LBP2! Make a Sackboy costume for Home, and a LittleBigPlanet 2 public space! I’m going to preorder the collectors edition! :)

(Miss the LBP2 Beta) :p

Tried to pick up the Collector’s Edition at GS but they ran out or stopped taking orders for it. Did the Pre-Order delivery of the Collector’s Edition on Amazon. I’ve got a whole family of Sackboys and Sackgirls waiting to play this game!

+ TwinDad on January 13th, 2011 at 1:32 pm said:

Seriously? THe same exact launch items that were for LBP1? Seriously. A new game and all you can do is re-cycle launch content?

I have the CE ordered from July. I know it takes time, but can we actually create new content for the special occasions. Same Holidays costumes every year.


23

+ Zezzler on January 13th, 2011 at 1:33 pm said:

Is the Rare T-Shirt actually going to come out? like… for real?
Can’t wait :D Pre-Ordered the CE and am READY!

How can anyone not get excited about LBP2!!!


25

+ angelspawn77 on January 13th, 2011 at 1:48 pm said:

5 more days! then CE here I come!

On the topic of the shirt though, why is that shirt 5$? I mean its a shirt…..not a full costume, heck if it was a full costume that still would be too expensive, I recall costume packs are 6$ so why is 1 shirt 5$? I could understand REAL items being more expensive than regular due to the rareness and down the line the price could go up, but digital items wont be worth anything in a few years.

+ Cubism on January 13th, 2011 at 1:52 pm said:

First off, I can’t wait, looking forward to this sooo much. Crossing my fingers Amazon delivers my CE week 1.

Second, I was hoping for something new as for the week 1 DLC. I already have the Space Suit from LBP1 week 1. To be honest, I’m a little sad that others will get it too, makes my suit a little less special, but it’s still one of the coolest costumes ever. Please MM, consider offering a new week 1 DLC and leave the space suit exclusive to us DAY 1 supporters :)

+ jimmyfoxhound on January 13th, 2011 at 2:06 pm said:

Are you seriously going to recycle old DLC with LBP2??? I downloaded that spaceman costume wayyyy back in 2008!! XD Come ON!


29

+ Cubism on January 13th, 2011 at 2:07 pm said:

To add to my previous post… MM, be so kind and give us a new never before seen week 1 DLC. I already have the space suit, so this will mean I get nothing new on week 1 and that just makes me sad. I’m sure I’m not alone on this. Some one please share my posts with MM.

Possible options: How about a Fireman suit (red fireman hat and black jacket, boots, and gloves with yellow stripe on edges). OR you can make everyone happy and give us Sephiroth! Any other suggestions? Post them :)

+ sleepy92 on January 13th, 2011 at 2:11 pm said:

This must be like the 20th trailer released for LBP2. I have the Collectors Edition pre ordered. I can’t wait to get my hands on this game. If you have a PS3 and you don’t buy LBP2, there’s something wrong with you.


31

+ sleepy92 on January 13th, 2011 at 2:14 pm said:

I’d also love to see a Kevin Butler commercial for LBP2. I just got the platinum trophy in LBP1 last night just in time for LBP2.


32

+ Bernkestel on January 13th, 2011 at 2:16 pm said:

I was wondering, will they be selling the CE at the sony store for people without preorders to buy?

does the first week shirt glow?

+ zekececil14 on January 13th, 2011 at 2:19 pm said:

#30 reminded me that I am ONE trophy away from the platinum. It is the one where you need to get hearted AS A CHARACTER 30 times. I need like 15 or 20 more. Please heart me.
Also, I paid extra for release date delivery, so CE day 1!!!!!

Can’t wait! Where’s the Kevin Butler LBP2 Commercial?

I’m starting to think KB doesn’t care as much for this game as we had hope! Gasp!

Will they be available in Canada?

Ahhh yes, the launch space suit costume. Got that on the first LBP. One of my favorites.


42

+ LockedUpInside on January 13th, 2011 at 2:50 pm said:

So the game will be sold on Monday??? Guess I’m buying 2 copies then, one signed on Monday, and the Collector’s Edition on Tuesday.

What time does the event start?


43

+ Golden_1 on January 13th, 2011 at 2:52 pm said:

@17 DLC Milking? It’s Mm is one of the only companies that support their title after launch. DLC Milking would be to have all the stuff on the disc already and have us pay to unlock it. Anything that came down the pipeline for LBP was made afterwards and almost all of it was Epic! Plus they had a lot of free updates such as water. I cannot wait for the game to come out and really happy I got the CE!

Sony, why are you buying Guinness world records for marketing purposes? Buy buying them they become worthless and as such, nobody cares.

The Guinness Book of World Records used to be interresting to read. Now, it’f full of made up records sold to the highest bidder.

Enjoy the “Records” you bought Sony, I don’t see how your ROI is going to be much higher then zero though.

Hopefully no 50 heart trophy! lol…

I still don’t understand why the freakin t-shirt is $5. It’s not rare because it’s hard to get, it’s rare because only a few people are dim enough to buy it.

I didn’t get a chance to pre-order the collectors edition :( but heard all the collectors edition DLC will be on the PlayStation Store so I guess its okay. Can’t wait until this game comes out!
