LittleBigPlanet 2 Move Pack Live Demo From gamescom

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Aug 18, 2011 // Sr. Social Media Manager

A few weeks ago, our Sid Shuman delivered an in-depth report on LittleBigPlanet 2’s upcoming Move Pack. In short, the Move Pack adds a wealth of new play styles, game genres, and imaginative new Story levels. And it even gives the game’s celebrated Create mode a major shot in the arm.

This morning in Cologne, Germany we ran into a couple of Media Molecule members at breakfast (the pastries were delicious). We asked if they’d be interested in running us through the new tools on camera. Media Molecule Level Design Lead Kengo Kurimoto stepped forward with a quick demo.

How cool was that cel-shaded Sackboy? That’s one of six new costumes based on iconic art, and it’s included when the Move Pack drops next month.

I know it’s kind of much to ask, but I just had to ask why’n not… Considering that this is the BIGEST Add-on yet, wouldn’t make sense to bundle it with a copy of the game? And maybe in doing so, you guys could give some serious thoughts on making a better box cover. It would make me one happy camper.

@53
Or make a bundle that includes:

LBP2 copy
LBP2 Prehistoric Moves
LBP2 Move Pack
PS Move Eye Camera
PS Move Controller
PS Move Navigation

That would be awesome, all for 120$, I’d buy it in a heartbeat

Anyways, I’m can’t wait for this to come out!! Will have to buy the PS Move first though…
And like others, I hope it’s free but it’s probably gonna be atleast 4.99…

Only two people have said something so far, so I feel it’s necessary to reiterate how awful that camera man is. How difficult is it to keep a straight shot with the entire television screen in frame? We don’t need any of those horrible 90′s XTREEM angled shots. Just put the whole TV in the frame, and maybe pan over to the MM guy demoing it occasionally.

TO ALL THE GUYS WHO ARE SAYING THAT THE MOVE PACK IS FREE or they are a liar or something like that… THEY ARE NOT LYING, the DLC of course it won’t be free, it would cost maybe $9.99 or $15… And if you are asking why then they wrote on the box of the CD move support that is because the levels that people create it when they bought the DLC are free like the water levels from Pirate Of the Carribains, u don’t have it to create with it but you can play the levels of people who created levels with water… the same point for MOVE pack, it won’t be free but u can play the levels who other people created it FREE!!

I can’t believe the comments people have left on this blog entry.

This video thoroughly excited me! I can’t even fathom all of the ways in which this changes what is POSSIBLE with LBP.

I can’t wait to see what people will do, but I can already tell that it’s going to be the very thing that confirms in my mind that I made the RIGHT choice in investing in a Move.

I’m actually REALLY crossing my fingers that 2-4 players can all use a Move at the same time.. or perhaps two players can use a move and one player can use a regular controller. It’s combinations like that which have me the most excited.. I think the gameplay possibilities are so huge… especially for multiplayer levels!

Imagine a game where the Move-controlled player controls all of the traps and sliding bars and gets points for each time they are able to kill the sackboy. Meanwhile, the player controlling the sackboy has to speed through the level in a race against time. Sure, it might take a while to tweak and playtest that kind of level until it works brilliantly, but it’s a style of competition that I don’t think has ever really been done before!

Can’t wait!

This looks awsome! defenetly getting it. also I have 2 questions, 1. in the trailer there’s a scene with one person playing with 2 controllers, does this mean that you have to have 2 controllers to be able to complete all singel player levels? 2. is it worht buying the navigaton controller? because it seems like you can play with the regular one.
