how are the book ends for the collecters edition? are they solid/sturdy? is the sackboy plushy any good?

My 1st big game purchase of the year and yes I was fool enough to buy the collectors edition. The bookends look nothing like what is shown on the website and are poor quality at best. The sackboy also is nothing like what is shown on the website and for the money paid I really did expect a lot more. Even worse, whats the point in buying a game to wait all day for the DLC to become available. Atleast the money I paid for GT5 felt well worth it and the DLC worked on day one from the moment it was installed. A fantastic game yes – but the collectors edition just aint worth the extra cash for some crabby bookends, a poorly made sackboy and DLC that you wait all day for.
Yet another major FAIL for Sony.

Man the Collector’s Edition seems cheap. I mean the bookends are made of thin cardboard and the sackboy feels a lot lower quality than the other ones licensed by Sony. The only true redeeming quality at this point in the outfits that come with it.

After the other nice CEs put out by Sony I really expect better quality on this one. Now, I thinking about canceling my Killzone CE out of fear the helmet will be made out of macaroni art.

Anyone else have a glitched pod problem? I played through the introduction then quit out to install new costumes, came back and the moon is in the middle of my pod and I can’t access the pod computer. I’ve already tried clearing the pod of all accessories and it didn’t work. I’m really bummed out, I was really looking forward to playing this all day…

+ keniken on January 18th, 2011 at 1:26 pm said:

@55 Same poblem here too dude. Anyone know how to reset this without having to re-install the game…?

I left work during lunch today and picked up my Collectors Edition that I reserved AND…………. “PAID IN FULL!” BAM!
“HOW DO YOU LIKE ME!” I’m going to go home and tare into the FUN and download everything I can!

Do I have to buy the game from the Sony Style Store or can I bring in my CE Copy from Amazon?

I’m sorry, but I’ve read many comments about how they don’t like that the same space suit is being re-released and the RARE t-shirt is $5. I for one understand why they re-released the same space suit. It’s for new people who have never played the game before and are being welcomed with some great, free DLC. The RARE t-shirt is $5, because it’s for hardcore fans. If you don’t want to spend the money, then don’t complain about how expensive it is. It’s RARE, that’s why it’s $5.


62

+ keniken on January 18th, 2011 at 1:48 pm said:

Ok I have rebooted and re-started the game 3 times and I still have the pod glitch. I can not access the pod computer and I can not change the veiw I have on screen. If anyone has any answers to this, please post them.

Why did you skimp out and make the instruction manual black and white?

I pre ordered the collectors edition of this game in August of last year from amazon and am not getting it until about to weeks after the release with leave me with none of these special deals :( this is depressing.

so where do i find this free spaceman suit? sony is horrible in the blog posts about giving us enough information!!

Is it true that the older DLC from LBP1 is compatible? I think I heard MediaMolecule mention this some time ago. Is it true?

Amazing game! Have been playing since I received it yesterday!! CONGRATS MM!


69

+ mariosmaker on January 18th, 2011 at 2:21 pm said:

@67
It’s all true, everything you bought for LBP works in 2 as well. I think they improved the graphics in 2 so all of your costumes look even better.

+ Paxjah on January 18th, 2011 at 2:22 pm said:

So..will the t-shirt and space suit be available for the EU launch date in any EU psn? Or will this be yet another goodie we miss out on?


71

+ keniken on January 18th, 2011 at 2:25 pm said:

It would appear that the pod glitch can be solved by changing your avatar, thanks for all the help Sony…..you are worst company ever when it comes to solving an issue with a game.
Oh and btw your servers for the game are down, good to know that buying a game from Sony on day one of its release is a waste of time.


72

+ RealGambler on January 18th, 2011 at 2:29 pm said:

It’s the same space suit I got for LBP1. I may be wrong, but I think it did become available later on (one year aniversary?). So, wasn’t so exclusive after all…


73

+ KwietStorm on January 18th, 2011 at 2:30 pm said:

keniken why don’t you log off and go for a walk. It’s obvious you need a break.

I have a problem with my gamestop code, it seems im able to reedem the code, but when I hit continue it says code may be expired :/ any suggestions since I know you can only input the code once.


75

+ Hooligantuan on January 18th, 2011 at 2:37 pm said:

Uhhh, Amazon says it could be up to the 29th until my *preordered* LBP2 arrives.

That mean I’m going to miss out on the Space Suit?

I mean, why wasn’t this redundantly attached to preorder codes?


76

+ LordTobert on January 18th, 2011 at 2:44 pm said:

Why do people seem to think the bookends are made of cardboard? They are clearly made of wood. As for the “cheapness” of the sackboy plush, it is IDENTICAL to the ones being sold in stores and online. You people really need to get out more, maybe go look at those big cardboard trees in your yard for a bit.


77

+ Aroenai on January 18th, 2011 at 2:45 pm said:

@Littleronin I’m not sure what you’re looking at but my bookends most definitely aren’t cardboard (they’re wood) and look like the ones in the promotional shots http://www.flickr.com/photos/playstationblog/4820500851/ the wood is a little more orange/tan though.

+ GGod0 on January 18th, 2011 at 2:50 pm said:

Everyone complaining about missing out on the week 1 DLC, can’t you still download it without the game? I mean you can’t use it yet, but still…


79

+ igot1i on January 18th, 2011 at 2:50 pm said:

Great game, but whats with the screen freezes? I cant play if I import my LBP data because it freezes, so i had to opt out of bringing my info over, and even that hasn’t stopped the gaME FROM FREEZING!!!!
I have alot of data on LBP, so I’m hoping tHAT BY deleting some community stuff it’ll work, but if there IS a bug, PLEASE FIX IT!!!!


80

+ echogridlock on January 18th, 2011 at 3:00 pm said:

@55 Same problem. Is someone paying attention to these comments? THERE IS A BIG BUG. The game is unplayable. If you quit the game and come back, the main planet that you load levels from is inside the pod and the game becomes unplayable every time you load. I think reinstalling will fix this, but what’s the point if its going to happen again? If someone with this bug could take a picture and upload it somewhere, that would be appreciated.


81

+ shalarei on January 18th, 2011 at 3:01 pm said:

Anyone else having a problem with UPLOAD freezing? I’m a second user on my p3 and have a LBP save, but the game keeps freezing up and is only accepting the save from the first person who played it. And I know he’d be pissed if I deleted HIS game utility data >.< Not coll Mm, not cool at all!

+ shalarei on January 18th, 2011 at 3:02 pm said:

@55, 78 + 79
I feel the frustration…


83

+ keniken on January 18th, 2011 at 3:05 pm said:

@79 Quit the game and then change your avatar and re-start the game – you do not need to re-stall the game. It would appear that this has been a bug that has been in the game since its beta days.

I have to say, those stating this game is ‘basically LBP DLC’ are dead wrong in my opinion. I don’t know if they simply haven’t looked into it enough, or what, but from the time I booted up the game I could tell it is a whole new, and much more polished, experience. Those who were in the beta, or have looked into it, *know* there are soooo many more possibilities now than in the first game. It’s also much easier to create now, at the same time adding more powerful tools, and you can create things and levels not even possible in the first game. On top of that, the game is running on a completely new engine, and is by far graphically superior to the first game, thanks to 1 part better graphics, and 1 part more animations for things like materials. This is a whole new game, completely deserving the title of sequel, that’s my opinion on it.

@82 thanks for the help. It didn’t work though. :(

@96 comeon, think a little. Go contact Sony as soon as possible and tell them about your situation. Don’t go on the web and complain about it, do something!

Ya, I coulddn’t find the dlc either. Where is it?
