LittleBigPlanet 2

We’re almost there! Our courageous participants will set the Guinness World Record mark for our LittleBigPlanet 2 gaming marathon at 6pm (Eastern Time) later today. Join us as we wrap up the past three days and celebrate the momentous occasion of LittleBigPlanet 2’s launch on the PS3!

Here’s a rundown of our favorite moments so far:

  • Guest Appearance from Sackboy himself
  • All the Media Molecule goodness in the form of interviews, tutorials and Q&A’s
  • LittleBigFistPumping with Jwoww and DJ Pauly D
  • Playing with the NYC Boys & Girls Club
  • All of our super fans making it to the PlayStation Lounge and joining us in the 4th chair
  • “Laptop Guy” entertaining the stream in the wee hours of the night
  • ALL our @LittleBigPlanet Twitter fans #LBP2record

Of course we couldn’t have done this without our partners:

  • PlayStation Lounge at Sony Style (…with Foursquare check-in)
  • Subway (…Loved the subs!)
  • AstroGaming (…bonus with the LBP2 speaker tags)
  • Gunnar Optiks (…sooo helped with the eye strain)
  • 7-11 (…Slurpees were officially slurped!)
  • Senario (…Plushies were a hit)
  • Mezco (…loved all three Sack-tion figures)
  • Great Eastern (…keychains: the perfect on-the-go accessory)
  • Brady Games (…the book of knowledge!)

And finally, our very special “Thank You” to our hosts:

Yay!

Little big planet deserves a new title because game of the year just doesn’t cut it! Game of the decade sounds more appropriate! Also starwars, batman, or Indiana Jones DLC would be awesome!

I’m enjoying the game very much but please fix the servers, sometimes it’s not even fun playing with others because of the lag.

+ Powie on January 19th, 2011 at 3:28 pm said:

Now if SCEA could just fix the trophy website so it actually displays the LB2 trophies, as well as all the other games that are missing, that would be a world record.

It would be freaking awesome if Media Molecule made a JERSEY SHORE DLC. We would see sack girls and sack boys fist pumping. Please MM make our dreams come true. I would def. buy it.

I watched over half the event (to much free time)it was really great so much great stuff was going on from sackboy to laptopboy to the record breaking final minute.

PS Blog said to use a different twitter tag than what the stream said #lbpwin for the contest
not many seemed to enter don’t know if that was why though
just a heads up for future reference

Congrats to the gamers and the staff manning it great people!

I didn’t understand why they made a second one. At first i though hey it will be the same thing but with sackbots, but it was more sorry I judged you. And you amaze all of the LBP2 fans of playstationetwork. I love LBP.

Attack of the Show just announced that the the PSP2 will be revealed on January 27. How come I have to hear this on G4TV instead of on the Sony site? Shame.

What an awesome 3 days, and I was there for all 3!! I was the Chinese guy with the glasses and the bag, and today with the little Sackboy doll in the 4th chair. :3 Congratulations to all three of you for gunning through 50 straight hours of LittleBigPlanet gaming, and MediaMolecule for making games that make this kind of achievement possible!! :DDDD

Sackboy FTW!!! I love Little Big Planet. we should have more games that allow me to play with my girlfriend.

Release a patch for online. It’s terrible. I get stuck on the Loading screen 90% of the time, then if I do manage to join a game it only lasts for awhile before it forces the loading screen back at me. And you can’t back out of any of it, so you have to exit the game and start all over. I got stuck in two story levels on the Loading Screen waiting to be put into the game.

You also shouldn’t find me games where the host auto-deny’s entry. That’s stupid. Exclude them from searches, so you don’t waste our damn time.

It’s a great game, but like LBP it still has many issues regarding online.

I just wanted to mention that I was at the event and was told I would get an email of the footage that I was in (with the interview of MM and playing with The Tester group), but I never got anything back. Can you please check into that if you get this? I was there the day the game released, I don’t know what time exactly I was there, but I came from NJ to show my little nephew the footage of the event. Please let me know ASAP. Thanks.
