LittleBigPlanet Community Update: 3.6 Million Levels and Counting

Mark Valledor's Avatar + Posted by Mark Valledor on Feb 04, 2011 // Marketing Manager, SCEA

Two weeks into the LittleBigPlanet 2 launch and the LBP community has been amazing. The internet has been crazy with tons of tweets, funny status updates and lots of new YouTube videos with new community members.

Speaking of community members: VideoGamesAwesome just got a PS3 and have discovered the AWESOMENESS that is LittleBigPlanet 2. Their podcast is entertaining, as we can see their genuine emotions as they play LBP2 for the first time. They’re still fairly new at the game so feel free to chime in and let them know which levels to play next (like this one from TripleTremelo)…

Speaking of cool levels: A big THANK YOU for helping us reach 3.6 million levels online! It’s astonishing to see so many levels made for fun, and even levels created for contests.



Speaking of contests – In addition to our LittleBigPrius contest, there are tons more contests and prizes out there:

Speaking of Sackbots: We’ve noticed an interesting increase in Monsters’ Zombie & Ghostbusters’ Slimer costume DLC downloads. I take it you guys are preparing for Zombie Survival levels…

LittleBigPlanet - Zombie Costume LittleBigPlanet - Slimer Costume

Speaking of DLC: Don’t forget to get the Chinese New Year and Groundhog Day DLC packs before they disappear! And next week, prepare for a special Valentine’s Day DLC pack to appear on the store for a limited time…

LittleBigPlanet - Chinese New Year Costume Pack LittleBigPlanet - Valentines Day Mini Pack LittleBigPlanet - Groundhog Costume

Speaking of Valentines Day: We love that LBP2 made it on this list of Valentine’s Day gifts for your special loved one with a PS3…

Speaking of PS3: WHAT?!?!?! You don’t have LBP or a PS3? You’ll love this deal.

That’s insane.

2M levels from LBP1.

Another 1.6M levels made in only a month of release.

Wow.

All I got to say.

Glad people are creating some awesome levels.

Really wish more devs would allow User Generated Content like what Media Molecule is offering.

:)

    Actually 3.5 are LBP1, but pretty sure at the rate we’re going, LBP2 will eclipse that by no time…

    *I sense sarcasm*

    Don’t worry, we’ll be announcing new DLC soon enough.

    If you got these seasonal costumes the first (or second) time around, we hope you enjoy how much better they look in LBP2. And if you’re new to LBP, we wanted to make sure everyone had a chance to get these during each holiday.

Awesome, great but the same old DLC again for the last two years? Where’s the newly produced LBP2 content?

+ reson8er on February 4th, 2011 at 11:53 am said:

Please guys, I love me some LBP 1/2 but kindly come up with some new costumes. These holiday releases, while free, are the same costumes we have been downloading for a couple years now. Since LBP 2 is here, it would be really really cool for you guys to upgrade these old favorites to new costumes :)

Anyway keep up the great job and thanks.

^ The game is the same as the last game. LoL

What do you expect. And get this, they plan to rehash overpriced dlc for this 2nd game too. So many stupid people, so little dlc for them to buy.

Have a few questions:

1. When will we see the Disney Princess Costumes you guys promised us way back in E3?

2. Around when will be see the 1st Patch?

3. What is going on with the Slurpee Promo? I have 2 codes for themes that don’ work. Also the others are still locked, when will they go love, and will the codes work?

+ Kirkpad on February 4th, 2011 at 12:04 pm said:

LOL @ 3.6 MIL. I bet you any money that at least 500000 of them are “H4H” and “Unnamed Level”. A friend of mine has all 20 slots in his LBP1 profile taken up by H4H levels.

Also yeah anyone who is expecting new content for free, don’t. Mm is likely too busy making the next Disney brand levels. Or hell, they could be making LBP3. We all know how they like to say a game “will never need a sequel.”

Anyway, back to play LBP2 I guess. I played several levels last night that had under 10 plays and they were all great.

+ ShadowOfEden on February 4th, 2011 at 12:15 pm said:

Yeah, but they out all those ‘1 second level for trophies!’, I’m sure it’s down to 1 million. :P

It also sucks that some of those stages have more plays than the level I took over 20 hours to make and has a pretty good average (9 yays out of 10 plays, 0 nays, 4 hearts). :(

I need help. I only need like eight creator hearts for the LittleBigPlanet platinum. I believe my levels are worth me getting 30 hearts. (but dont all parents think their kids are the best?) I’m not asking for H4H, (HORRIBLE) but please check out my levels. My favorite is “The Bounce-O-Matic (vLBP2)”.

LBP2 is a massive improvement on LBP1. I can’t imagine how was I playing LBP1 after I jumped into LBP2! *It’s that amazing*

I wish you guys could surprise us with DLC just like you did with LBP1’s PoTC and Metal Gear Solid packs, I remember those days, when I bought Pirates of The Carribean’s pack the day it came out, and had a BLAST playing with water for the first time, those days were unforgettable!

I have only one request, please please please keep giving us those astonishing packs and updates. Don’t stop the Title Updates and the DLC, just like you did with the original LittleBigPlanet.

Other than that, Iam speechless with the community generated content. They’re a blast to play, and unfortunately, my PS3 got the YLOD yesterday, and am getting it fixed by tomorrow. And by this week, I’ve been jumping into LBP.me in my free time (Or when I’m bored of studies! :P) and have currently 80+ levels queued waiting for me to play (Plus the story, which I’ve yet to complete!).

Thank you MM, for such a wonderful game, I can’t say more than that, you guys deserve the praise you’re getting from us, LBP fans. Keep up the awesome-sauce and Im here waiting for more DLC announcements as I have a 50$ card waiting. ;)

Hey Mark I got a question for you. Awhile back I heard there was going to be a Rachet and Clank pack that far surpassed the MGS/Pirates Packs would by any chance the rachet and Clank costumes are from that pack?

The Gadgets list in LBP2 are surprisingly massive, I’d be more active more on Create Mode rather than playing a level because it’s so much fun!

But I have a problem, I’m not skillful enough to build advanced levels like a pro. So, I really don’t think I can get Platinum trophy on this. :(

+ Permafry_42 on February 4th, 2011 at 3:32 pm said:

I was wondering if there are any plans to allow groups of users to create group levels where anyone who helped to create the level gets partial credit for it. It would really help those of us who are helping to create larger levels but aren’t the owner of the level get credit for our work. If this is able to be implemented, please consider it for a future update to the game. Thanks!

Well, it seems pretty clear we’re going to to get Tron, Muppets and Toy Story DLC packs (Mm are clearly working with Disney who own all those franchises and own Marvel too) because we had tasters in the Collectors Edition. A Muppet-based level kit would be amazing!
Personally, I’m holding out hope for a Doctor Who costume pack (I’m sure some of the Molecules are fans, they’re Brits after all…and they did a 2000AD pack!) but I’m sure my hopes are in vain. :(

i have ideas for new costumes. costumes about ven terra and aqua from the game kingdom hearts birth by sleep; raziel, kain and ariel from soul reaver. crash, coco, crunch, ncortex, nina cortex and everyone from the game of crash bandicoot and finally costumes from the resident evil characters. LBP is the best, and you guys can beat the final boss, if u dont die a lot lol xD, good luck and I hope that the costumes will be in there :), good luck

@32: You might have community items turned off. Go to settings in the pause menu and make sure the box is checked so you can collect community items. Then turn it back off when you’re done with the LittleBigPrius level so you don’t fill up your profile with the crappy prizes most people give you. :D

@most people: No offense. :)

@Mark Valledor: Cause and Effect 5 is a LBP1 level. I enjoyed that level, and I understand that people new to LBP (like me) want to see all the content made for both games. But this republishing-old-levels nonsense has gotten a bit out of hand. Just sayin’.


45

+ ThumbsOfSteel74 on February 5th, 2011 at 7:06 am said:

@32: Oops. I forgot to say it’s in profile settings.

@Mark: Maybe you guys knew that was a LBP1 level already, but the YouTuber that posted it apparently didn’t. Which goes to my point: There’s no way to filter out LBP1 levels in a search if people keep republishing them. Anyway, I love the game despite loading issues online. Looking forward to all the great new DLC. :)

Yay double posting! :P

Hey Mark can I ask you something? There has been one DLC that I have always been waiting for, and Im pretty sure many other people have been waiting for too. This DLC is the Sephiroth Costume, it was announced when MGS4 Pack was announced and MGS4 Pack was released but not sephiroth, do you have any idea when they will release it? And by the way I have never seen that valentines DLC before is it new or the same old?

I cant wait for the … umm, actually I dont know if its the first LBP2 DLC… because there has already been the Rare-T Shirt and Collectors Edition (or pre-order) costumes which are btw AWESOME. But anyway I just cant wait for the next DLC for LBP2 :D

I would like to thank you since I missed out on most of the stuff first time around. Please keep it all coming, new and old.

Would be really neat if there was a special way to get some of the first day release and other rare dlc.

Thank You the family loves LBP and LBP2!
