LittleBigPlanet 2 Community Update and Share Trailer

Mark Valledor's Avatar + Posted by Mark Valledor on Jan 21, 2011 // Marketing Manager, SCEA

Wow! What a week. The launch of LittleBigPlanet 2 was as epic as ever. So many things happened and our community has been going wild. And with the community growing so much, we have a new video to make sure everyone knows how to SHARE their LBP2 fun.

And here’s some more fun links for the weekend:

Fix the horrendous online. It’s by far worse than LBP1 at it’s worst. Which is saying A LOT.

It is really starting to annoy me. Lag beyond playability is one thing, but not even being able to stay in the game without turning off your damn controller is [DELETED]. We shouldn’t get stuck on loading screens at all. Let alone be forced to turn off our controllers, then wait until it tells us to reconnect, just to maybe be put back into the game.

I can’t believe that this is even a problem. It’s flat out ridiculous. The biggest problem in LBP is worse in LBP2. I’d have expected better from MM.

I love this game, but I hate the online and am getting incredibly frustrated.

Thanks for making such a fun game. And i am loving all these mini games. The funnest one so far is the blocks. The game itself was short but we have all these new user created levels to keep us busy.

how can we download the levels showcased in the ARCADE trailer?

PLEASE give us the names of those levels so we can play them!!

Games so good. I got it day one and I’ve played it everyday (after work unfortunately) and I’ve only done like 3 of the story levels and the rest of the time has been having my mind blown with user made levels that are awesome!

I guess it helps that I had LBP1 and have all the gear I had on that and all my DLC outfits. So I’m not just a naked sack boy running around user levels hehe.

Loving the game so far. Thanks. I also have a few ideas for DLC:

The Muppets
Dark Crystal
Transformers
DC Comics (since PS3 already has DCUO)
Dead Space
Family Guy
Futurama
Predator
Alien
He-Man
Monster’s Inc.

I could think of a lot more but I think that is a good start. Keep up the great work.

Hey if anybody wants the preorder from Gamestop I have an extra code. I bought the special edition so I got all the costumes with that. First one that answers the question gets it.

Who has the most hearted level?

+ onlineatron on January 21st, 2011 at 5:42 pm said:

Two things that need to be done to improve sharing levels.

1) Videos on LBP.me: I want to be able to see run throughs of levels before queuing them up to play.

2) Distinction between LBP and LBP2 levels: Some simple market that lets me know I’m playing a new level from LBP2 with all the new, cool features.

@onlineatron: The videos on LBP.me is an awesome idea. I was just thinking that a minute ago looking at levels.

Ok you need to release the Final Fantasy stuff already and to add to that you need to put up some Uncharted,Kingdom Hearts, and TRON DLC like now I have a psn card and it’s calling out for them I need a sackboy Version of Cloud and Sora also I need a Keyblade.

@onlineatron
Seriously? You must not have played LittleBigPlanet 2, because the LBP 1 levels have a pink tree in the upper left corner of the patch. LBP 2 levels have nothing.

LittleBigPlanet 2 is a great way to get away from the ordinary. However, I bought this to play with my friends and so far that’s not going so well because of these loading issues. I’ll be playing a level and it will begin to load while we’re half way through the level. And there is no way out of it! The worst part is we can still control our characters while we’re in the loading menu. We had 3 players last night and all were dead except for my friend who was in a loading screen but we were right at the end. My friend who hosted the game told him to try and move and he did all the way to the finish line. It doesn’t even appear that we’re loading if that’s happening.

Hi. You really need to fix the problem with the online play immediately, constantly stuck in loading screens. Yes, I know the trick to turn the controller on/off, but over and over and over?! This is priority one.
For DLC, I hope you do more themed level packs that include trophies. For LBP1 there was only the two that also included new features.

That video was very awesome! I feel like I know those guys from somewhere. Are they semi-celebrities or something?

Also, I haven’t really come across any levels with all the different genres you’ve advertised, like racing, shooting, RPG’s, fighting, etc. I did play that one basketball level! Are these in the story mode, and I haven’t played them yet, or are they published as community levels?

My only complaint so far is the online play. Some problems I expected due to all the traffic in the first week. And maybe part of it is my connection. But I thought you would’ve learned your lessons from the first game. Every time I try to join people, either it fails to join me with anyone, or it takes forever. One person joined with me, but then everything slowed down, even after I quit the level and returned to my pod. This stopped when I kicked him out of the game. Because of this, I’ve mostly been playing by myself, doing the story levels. I have done some community levels, and enjoyed a few!

I know you guys can fix the online stuff. You guys are fantastic! I wish you all the best of luck in this game’s future!

I’ve been to 3 different 7-11s got the promo cups and have tried to enter the codes http://www.slurpee.com and everytime I’m told I’ve entered an invalid code. Do you have any suggestions? If not, will these items become available on the PSN? I really want the dynamic theme & sticker pack. Thanks for your help.

Really funny video, showcasing the powerful LBP2 search engine! It looks far better than LBP original’s for sure. Talking sackboys were awesome!

Very cool video! :)

I’m using LBP.me a lot. Just about everytime I go online anymore I’m looking at it and seeing if there’s any levels I want to put on my Q.

Tonight I played the best LBP2 full game User created level so far imo. It’s called blast radius and it was amazing! Its a space shooter that includes a Menu (with options!), an amazing background that actually changes (the sun comes up), and very cool gameplay. I can’t wait to see even more cool levels on LBP2.

As for DLC ideas, I’d love to see more level packs like the Metal Gear Solid and Pirates of the Carribean packs. Those had great gameplay & design, plus offered us new tools to play with.

And of course I can’t wait to see even more new cool costumes. More Disney would be great. Also DC Comics would be cool.

Anyway, MM did such a great job with this game! I’m having so much fun.

Please fix the online MM! I love the game and I know some say the controller trick works, but honestly we shouldn’t have to do that, its tedious and unacceptable to leave it like that, as it is, the lbp2 MP is worse than lbp1, it should be a step up not down :( I really hope that you guys at MM will fix it.

It`s not very comforting, but I`m relieved to see it`s not just me that can`t play with other people in this game. Forced to play alone, I`ve beat the game and aced all but two levels. I`ve collected everything except the stuff you need MULTIPLAYER for.

I`ve had both My Earth stuck in my Pod, and a barrage of loading screens every time I tried to play with another person. This is an awesome but severely broken game :( Makes me wonder WHY it was delayed 2 months. PLEASE fix this issue ASAP.

As for DLC, some Aliens and Predators would be awesome. I`ve tried making my own but it`s impossible to make a good Alien: no long head or long barbed tail. And Aliens are so CUTE! It would also be cool to have all the Preds from the recent Predators flick too. I love the Falcon Predator <3

LBP2 needs a serious patch, This infinite loading screen bug really makes the online play for this game UN-PLAYABLE and I know it’s a common problem due to a ton of people on the support forums complaining about, Heck you can even youtube “LBP2 Loading Screen” and see videos of the problem lol PLEASE MM WE NEED A PATCH ASAP!! This issue started in the beta and should have ended there but I guess this little nasty bug slipped past into the full game, Oh well I still love the game and will continue to play even if I have to fight off loading screens.

I love LBP and i’m loving the second one even more. I am disappointed about the ‘limited edition launch t-shirt’. You’d figure that MM and Sony would show their appreciation for launch players by rewarding them with the shirt. Instead they’re charging $5 for a t-shirt. That costs more than most LBP DLC packs that give you much more content. $0.99 stand alone costumes typically include several pieces (head, pants etc). Yea, the ‘launch’ space suit is free… but didn’t i get that free as LBP content last year? Sorry, but $5 one piece item seems like a gouge. Mm scores for a great game but loses points for customer respect on this money grab.

+ Tomm4118 on January 22nd, 2011 at 11:14 am said:

Ohhh…! I have some ideas for LBP2 DLCs.

1) A make your own background creation tool.

2) A water container building too. Allow me to expand on this.
It’s cool to have WATER and all, but what if you don’t want everything in your level to be underwater!?

What If… You could use a magic creation tool to simply draw a “Container” in which water could exist separately in its own space.
Yes, it sounds crazy at first, but then, so is every other do-able invention in the world of imagination.

Imagine a level, where water could be poured into a barrel, onto a levy that heaved a switch to activate a contraption.
A level where you’re running under an aquarium as fish soar over sack boy’s head.
An anti-gravity level where water were orbs of swimming pool and sack boy could escape one only to fall into another.
A level were you had to unclog PIPES in order to distribute water from one side of the room to the other while still staying dry.

I ask of all of you, the brilliant designers and programmers at Medium Molecule, to just think of all the crazy possibilities if this idea was to come true.
Please.
Think About It.

Best Game ever, Im LOVING IT! I dont know if I will ever quit, atleast not for a while. And a Question, actually two. Why hasn’t the Sephiroth costume been released yet? Its been announced for a quite a while, since the MGS4 pack. And the second Question, why hasn’t any Uncharted DLC been released? I always wondered that because Uncharted is my favorite series on the Playstation 3. Even the Psp version of Little Big Planet has Uncharted 2 DLC with Nathan Drake and Chloe Frazer costumes, but absolutely nothing for the Playstation 3 version. I cant wait to start making levels and getting involved in the community. Planning to do so after I finish the StoryMode, and possibly Ace all of it :P

Look, I’m loving this game. It’s really a lot of fun but these servers are just full of fail. The first game’s servers were never stable or very good. I was hoping this would be different. The load issues are really annoying. The lag and slowdown is really annoying. Getting booted from a friends pod after every level you play together is really annoying. It takes away from the amazing experience that is LBP 2. Please, please for the love of sack, fix it asap.
