For those who have the Cross Controler DLC pack I built a Short Chritmas Steam train level. Even made touch controls on Vita look like inside of steam engine with working levers to drive the train on PS3. HappyHolidays and merry Christmas every one.

    You can filter your level searches to display LittleBigPlanet 2: Cross-Controller Pack specific levels, in just the same way that you can filter your search results to display just the LittleBigPlanet 1, LittleBigPlanet 2 or LittleBigPlanet 2: Move Pack too.

    Here’s where you can find all of the LittleBigPlanet 2: Cross-Controller Pack community levels! :)

For those who wish to play @2′s level, you won’t need the cross controller pack. You just need LBP2 patched to the latest version and a PS Vita.

    All of the DLC costumes should now be available in LittleBigPlanet PS Vita.

    If you’re still missing any, please let us know which costumes you are missing and which country you’re from and we’ll try to get them up asap in the New Year!

My Christmas wish would be for the cross controller pack to work for me and my son! I have tried everything that has been published and nothing works! Why does this have to be so difficult? Remote play always connects with no problem but not this, why is that?

Patch the Cross Controller so a dualshock 3 doesn’t need to be on for no reason. Everytime it goes off and I turn it back on I get a default Sackboy, and since finding most costumes in LBP2′s popit is impossible I have to back out completely to get into yhe store and my stuff to put Kat back on.p

Tedious.

Please, please, let me know. Do you ever intend to let people who bought “game of the year” editions get their DLC for Vita?

Specifically the Metal Gear Solid pack, Animals Pack, History pack, and Monster Pack, from when you bought Little Big Planet 1 game of the year edition.

It works with Little Big Planet 2. It just does not work with Little big Planet Vita.

Please answer, thank you ^_^.

I’m from North America.

I wan to to thank JONGREY for helping me with the Cross Controller set-up. Even though it was my WiFi noting being strong enough, he still helped me. I finally got it to work when I brought my router closer to my PS3 where the Vita was trying to download the file (which I still don’t know why Sony decided to make it so complicated, and not have a separate file for the Vita). So for anyone that is having trouble downloading because it gets stuck and restarts like the trouble i was having, I highly suggest bringing the WiFi closer to the TV your PS3 is hooked up as, to get a 100% WiFi signal.

Even when I search by name in the PS Store I can’t bring up the Winter Creator Kit–is it for Vita too or just PS3? Is it the old one we had back in like the LBP1 days?

+ ABNJ on December 24th, 2012 at 10:28 am said:

This is a bit irrelevant to the post, but I see that comments are being replied to, so I hope that this problem gets fixed. When I bought my Vita, remote play factored into the decision greatly, and it’s STILL a dud. To add insult to injury, the ONLY thing I used remote play for has been taken away. I would use it to download things from the PS store on my ps3 remotely, but the new store no longer allows that! Make the store remote play compatible, or make remote play work with everything. I am extremely dissatisfied with how Sony lied about the Vita, and then TAKES AWAY features.

Thanks for another year of creative fun.

Personally I’m saving my money for the next marvel costume pack, I don’t even know who at least 3 of the people in pack 5 are heh. Also won’t be getting cross controller any time soon (unless it’s free) since I’ve seen tons of comments from people that can’t get it to work, or need to follow complicated steps, that’s not fun gaming.

But other than that it’s been a good year for your products so thank you and happy holidays.

@27: They didn’t lie, and the new store is a huge pos so it lacking remote play, which I used all the time, shouldn’t be a surprise. Whole store should be scrapped and done by some competent people next time. If PS4 uses this crap I won’t buy much of anything off it.

Hey guys…. i can’t find anything on the store… where is the winter pack? where is the festive pack? where are all the LBP 1 add ons? Shouldn’t it be perhaps under Littlebigplanet add-ons? Makes sense right? Why can’t we text search? It wouldn’t be so annoying if the store wasn’t so terribly slow. Sigh… :(

@32 They didn’t lie? If I understand English correctly, promising a service and then not providing it or giving any information about it is classified as a lie. If you still back up Sony on this, that’s just blind fanboyism.
