Starting this week’s LittleBigPlanet 2: Mm Picks, we have a great Wheel of Fortunes game that will see you spinning the wheel and playing mini-games to try and score more points than your friends.

Rounding off this week’s LittleBigPlanet 2: Mm Picks, we have Another Planet – A grand platforming adventure that has Sackboy leaving LittleBigPlanet and visiting another planet within the ever-expanding Omniverse.

Head on LBP.me to check out these great levels and some of our favorite levels featured in the LittleBigPlanet 2: Mm Picks!

Surge Lite on LittleBigPlanet PS Vita

Now here’s a wonderful story that came to our attention last week, one of our community members leklack was unable to find Surge by the great folks at FuturLab on the PlayStation Store, only to discover that it hadn’t been released in her country yet. This didn’t deter community member evret though, as he began working straight away on a LittleBigPlanet PS Vita conversion of Surge just for leklack. You can check out this great level for yourself in the video below.

FuturLab were so impressed by evret’s new level and his dedication to bringing Surge to LittleBigPlanet PS Vita, that they declared that evret needs a medal! We couldn’t agree more and are pleased to award evret with the Rare Prize Crown and the even more fabled Awesomesauce Pin for crafting this amazing recreation of Surge, which you can now queue up and play on LittleBigPlanet PS Vita too!

Congratulations evret, a truly astounding level and a thoroughly well-deserved award for your hard work and dedication within the LittleBigPlanet community.

LittleBigPlanet PS Vita: Team Picks

This week we have a fantastic platformer set in an ancient Japanese castle. You can also find the Surge Lite level from the lovely story above in this week’s LittleBigPlanet PS Vita: Team Picks.

Hey there, Steven.
I was just wondering about universal costume packs. I wanted to use my limited edition LBP2′s costumes in karting and couldn’t find them. I also bought the FFVII costume pack because it stated that it would work for LBP Kart as well as the VITA one. Just wanting to see if there is a resolution for this issue coming soon.

Thanks!

First off.. WHERE IS THE PATCH FOR KARTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I tried playing it after giving up, and sure enough right as I’m about to save my completed racetrack that was awesome.. it froze. This game is broken beyond anything I’ve ever seen released. There must be a patch immedietly!

Also where is the promised dlc costumes transferred to karting? What’s taking United Front so long? Tarsier/Double 11 took care of this within the first month. It’s FEBRUARY.

And finally, none of these Team Picks are even showing up ingame. The LBPKarting game is stuck showing christmas levels. There’s barely anything to even play in Karting. FIX IT!

Ok… ok i’m done raging.. good work with LBP2 and LBPVita. At least those games are actually being supported.

While I’m glad Karting is finally getting DLC, I was hoping to see some info on the patch that was promised to be released “soon.” Disappointed to see there is still a lack of info regarding this. Is there any point in time that you guys plan to give LBP Karting the fixes it needs and for players to use LBP/LBP2 DLC costumes?

At Steven the only way i could see this big announcement being exactly that is if you guys announce a LBP psvita version tomorrow with cross platform play, cross save. Now THAT would be an ANNOUNCEMENT!!!

How about a discount or price drop for on a classic games like God Of War collection 1,2 and Uncharted 1,2 ?
The best downloadable deal on PSN for me was Assassin’s creed 3 Gold Edition on christmas since that deal no good deal .

good to read about the coming announcement. I am also pleased a bit by the new DLC.

here is the 64 dollar question though. as far as the DLC are these carts moddable? and more importantly do we get their various bits and bobs for use with other carts are are these just stand alones like Untied Front is known to do in the past a-la Modnation racers?

I mean yes having new sack boy (and girl ) costume bits is very cool. but having carts with parts that cannot be used in other carts isn’t. it’s like here have these toys ,you can do whatever you want with them unless that whatever involves using your creativity on other toys then well you can’t do that. what did you think this was a creative game?

I am not against updates and pack I really am not. but I was very dissapointed in UF with modnation racers since they introduced a lot of show carts that could not be modified nore any of it’s cool parts,used on any other karts and it just defeats the purpose of having a creative game if there are some toys we cannot play with in the sandbox.

I look forward to the update for LBP Karting, since I bought the game last year and it’s still not complete (as advertised) I’ve had a hard time enjoying it (and there are so many good kart/race games that are complete as sold)

If this patch/update for Karting comes soon than I’ll finally grab LBP for the Vita as well as a few costume packs I’ve had my eye on (want them, but I can’t support a developer that doesn’t complete their games) and then I’ll own every game Sackboy is in :)

Thanks letting us know real news is around the corner :)

Is it possible to get some batman costumes, or power rangers costumes? I think they would sell very well. maybe even some single-player DLC with levels and stickers.

Will this DLC be for free? It’d be nice from you, LBPK users have been abandoned for a respectable amount of time without news about the costumes or exclusive DLCs. And I guess tomorrow will be finally be the day when both come.

@ecoli911 I posted a Battle at the Batcave arena, it’s my first level so it may not be perfect, but I hope you come and give some feedback (I already find it kind of huge, but there is an ulterior intention on that…)

I’ve been giving a return to the bad service provided by Playstation, here in Latin America. I find it incomprehensible, since, on the verge of the play4, Latin America still has no psn ​​service, whether they realize some Latin American countries have a store, disguised as official, with service and shoddy uncomfortable (I mean platform, and that in general the staff are polite and efficient in solving problems) is absurd, that we allow such discrimination, worse for Colombia, Peru and perhaps few other countries, if you want to have the Store disguise, what sorry for our community that has failed to perceive such immoralities and misfeasance. The truth is that I bought the console for my son, because he insisted on the play, though he warned that at first glance the XBOX 360, presents most prestigious technology and know-how, unfortunately let my son decide.

@ MathiasRios

First off… go buy an xbox then and see how long it lasts before you get the RROD. Microsoft may have great technology but they manufacture their consoles very cheaply as you’ll probably learn.

Second… this is not the place to voice your concern… talk to customer service and don’t post things irrelevant to the topic.

Hey Steve! This comment is about Little Big Planet 2, i’m kinda angry and I don’t know if there was a glitch over att Mm with there system. Yesterday on 2/19/13 between 9:30-10:00 the Little Big Planet Compeition Winner’s Crown was free. It was at the bottom of the lbp2 store and you could acctualy download it. Alot of people and some of my friends downloaded it for free so i’m kinda angry that I did not know about it. Did you guys acctualy make it free for a limited time only thing? Please respond back, thank you for reading. ^^
