This sounds exciting

    Oh yeah! We can’t wait for everyone to check out LittleBigPlanet HUB and all the great community created content! :)


+ NYPUNK88 on August 20th, 2013 at 12:00 pm said:

Sounds so awesome can’t wait to try it out. :D


+ Mando44646 on August 20th, 2013 at 12:01 pm said:

what about Vita and PS4? Will this be ported to both of them as well?

    + Steven Isbell on August 20th, 2013 at 12:23 pm said:

    LittleBigPlanet HUB is being released for PlayStation 3. :)


+ retro25 on August 20th, 2013 at 12:02 pm said:

That’s awesome, I’m going to check that out when it comes.


+ Suicide_Surfer on August 20th, 2013 at 12:03 pm said:

Wait, so you have to BUY levels? I’ll stick to LBP2

    Steven Isbell's Avatar


    + Steven Isbell on August 20th, 2013 at 12:27 pm said:

    You don’t have to buy anything, that’s the whole point.
    You’re more than welcome to sample the 500+ featured levels in the Team Picks for free. :)


+ Elvick_ on August 20th, 2013 at 12:07 pm said:

Will this come to Vita and PS4? It’d be awesome to be able to play LBP1/2 levels on Vita, but I know that it’d probably be hard to do on Vita… but it’d still be great to have the potential to play LBP1/2 levels anywhere.

@5: What, you expect to get the full LBP and LBP2 completely free? Entitlement has become a real problem.


+ Satnamji on August 20th, 2013 at 12:11 pm said:

Will there be LBP Karting integration in HUB?

    Steven Isbell's Avatar


    + Steven Isbell on August 20th, 2013 at 12:30 pm said:

    LittleBigPlanet Karting is a stand-alone title that is built on a completely different engine to LittleBigPlanet 1 and 2, so it can’t really be integrated into LittleBigPlanet HUB.


+ MrSignal on August 20th, 2013 at 12:15 pm said:

New content and free community levels?

Otherwise, should have seen it coming, the whole F2P thing.
Really should suit LBP.

Hopefully the improved engine should allow for new experiences and game updates(like level saving).
Might be a bit tricky unless they go free-roaming.

    + Steven Isbell on August 20th, 2013 at 12:34 pm said:

    Much like LittleBigPlanet 1 and 2 has done, LittleBigPlanet HUB will receive regular content releases after it is launched. :)

    What exactly that holds for the Sackfolk of LittleBigPlanet?
    Well, I can’t say just yet but we will definitely continue to push the creativity of our community. ;)


+ LuiSpartanMIMIMI on August 20th, 2013 at 12:26 pm said:

Please answer:

LittleBigPlanet 2 and LittleBigPlanet HUB are cross-play?

If I’m playing LBP2 and want to invite my friend who’s playing LBP HUB , can I?

    Steven Isbell's Avatar


    + Steven Isbell on August 20th, 2013 at 12:31 pm said:

    Since you will be able to access all of your LittleBigPlanet 1 and 2 content in LittleBigPlanet HUB, along with all of HUB’s exclusive content, I would suggest inviting all of your friends for one big party in LittleBigPlanet HUB instead! :)


+ Sharingan_itachi on August 20th, 2013 at 12:32 pm said:

Please please bring this to PSVita. It looks like a perfect app for it and have LBP Vita integration .


+ Sharingan_itachi on August 20th, 2013 at 12:34 pm said:

If I am right, LBPV uses the same as LBP and LBP2 unlike LBPK .


+ darkhairwarrior on August 20th, 2013 at 12:47 pm said:

So, wait, are all the levels from LBP1 2 and Vita available for free? Or is HUB it’s own thing with it’s own User Generated Content?

Won’t people just sell their LBP games?

Will the party still be limited to 4 players?

So many questions!


+ Jacob_Allen_1987 on August 20th, 2013 at 12:50 pm said:

are there going to be trophies for this game or not


+ VvEMBERvV on August 20th, 2013 at 1:08 pm said:

^_- Game Like Play Love! Omg LittleBigPant Fun Boy My Friends Kiss <3


+ Sharingan_itachi on August 20th, 2013 at 1:09 pm said:

@12 No not Vita. They don’t care about PSVita at all. Not even bothered to do one and bring all the 3 games together even though it’s not hard at all.


+ VvEMBERvV on August 20th, 2013 at 1:09 pm said:


+ CatatonicAlex on August 20th, 2013 at 1:23 pm said:

@15 And you know this to be true how?
Different system- different engine- different play-styles.

….Although I remember there being an interview a while back saying that a new LBP game was hitting the vita.


+ Jacob_Allen_1987 on August 20th, 2013 at 1:24 pm said:

another question if you earn content on LBP Hub can it be imported to the other games or is it just for hub only

    Steven Isbell's Avatar


    + Steven Isbell on August 20th, 2013 at 5:37 pm said:

    Any content released exclusively for LittleBigPlanet HUB will remain in LittleBigPlanet HUB.


+ GLiTcH2 on August 20th, 2013 at 1:32 pm said:

Will there be a Beta for LBP Hub? Seems only fitting since LBP1 and 2 had beta sign-ups.


+ TSFRJ on August 20th, 2013 at 2:45 pm said:

Sounds like LBP3 to me:) Also since LBPVita is built on a similar engine and cross control dlc prove they can wok together can LBPHUB link LBP2 and LBPVita in away that allows us to use LBPVita instead of CC create mode allowing us tobuild better CC levels with full vita range of content?


+ Elvick_ on August 20th, 2013 at 2:49 pm said:

@20: Even if it was just cross control, to use the Vita screen to use as a cursor (thus easily drawing/cutting/etc) would be great.


+ TSFRJ on August 20th, 2013 at 2:51 pm said:

yep its LBP3 this how all games series should work where 3 game comes with 1st 2 games bundled in


+ MLP_Erick on August 20th, 2013 at 3:15 pm said:

Will this game be more than 1-4 players? Is it the same as the other LBP’s? With a 3rd Person view instead of a side-scroller? is it free roam? I have many questions!


+ Curtisio on August 20th, 2013 at 3:53 pm said:

Would is be considered an Upgrade from LBP2?

    Steven Isbell's Avatar


    + Steven Isbell on August 20th, 2013 at 5:32 pm said:

    Most definitely!


+ Curtisio on August 20th, 2013 at 3:54 pm said:

Second question – what parts of LBP HUB are being posted as something you need to purchase?

    Steven Isbell's Avatar


    + Steven Isbell on August 20th, 2013 at 5:33 pm said:

    We will have more details on how to purchase additional content closer to release. :)


+ Kchow23 on August 20th, 2013 at 4:37 pm said:

I was hoping that this would be like some sort of LBP equivalent of PS Home instead of a F2P version of it which is still cool.


+ gilgamesh21 on August 20th, 2013 at 4:46 pm said:

Sounds interesting. I wonder if the creative tools for infamous 2 will get the same treatment? infamous “hub”?


+ plaztiksyke on August 20th, 2013 at 4:49 pm said:

Will there be support for Move and Vita cross-controller content?

I was really miffed when the SingStar Digital dropped all Move support.

Any improvements to the rendering engine since LBP2?

    Steven Isbell's Avatar


    + Steven Isbell on August 20th, 2013 at 5:35 pm said:

    LittleBigPlanet HUB will support all of our previous DLC releases for LittleBigPlanet 1 and LittleBigPlanet 2, this includes the Move Pack and Cross-Controller Pack, as well as the community levels that have been created with them. :)


+ GnomeWizard on August 20th, 2013 at 4:53 pm said:

Any news on the fix for the cross-controller dlc? cross controller works so flawlessly on Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 but doesn’t work at all for LBP2…..:/


+ actio1_618 on August 20th, 2013 at 6:48 pm said:

Sounds neat! Can we expect some updates on the logic or the tools?


+ PokeMario on August 20th, 2013 at 7:12 pm said:

Are there any new tools to create with as well as tools from the Vita version within LittleBigPlanet HUB? Also will LittleBigPlanet ever be on PS4 or is this the last we’ll see of LittleBigPlanet being released as an game?


+ Darig0n on August 20th, 2013 at 8:06 pm said:

What about trophies?


+ Mot345 on August 20th, 2013 at 8:51 pm said:

Awesome! Really loved LPB 1. Unfortunately have never played the sequel but this is exactly what I could ever want out of this game :) Good thinkin


+ allnewfie on August 20th, 2013 at 10:43 pm said:

sounds great and cant wait. i do wish it came to psvita. besides that wondering how many sack freinds i can invite to my pod or moon.


+ Chri814 on August 21st, 2013 at 12:03 am said:

It’ s only for Lbp 1?


+ IrishDude2 on August 21st, 2013 at 3:32 am said:

So we can use our disc versions as a frisbee now?


+ Wizman87 on August 21st, 2013 at 4:56 am said:

Any chance that servers will be fixed this time around? As in, we’ll actually be able to download levels fast and join into games even faster? None of these disconnection messages and long loading times while joining from your pod as a party (or while playing solo)? :P

We all like to have fun, but if my friends and I can’t even join games properly, how can we enjoy the LittleBigPlanet HUB gaming experience? These server issues were never fixed in LittleBigPlanet 2, LittleBigPlanet Vita, or in LittleBigPlanet Karting. I’d really like to see some fixes made to your dedicated servers! Send a message about this to Media Molecule! :P

Anyways, I’m as super excited as ever to see more of LittleBigPlanet! I’m a huge fan and I can’t wait to see more to come from LittleBigPlanet HUB! Thanks for the update from GamesCom! ^_^


+ Tefalpan on August 21st, 2013 at 5:12 am said:

To all who are thinking it was a waist of byn LBP 1 & 2:
You got to read better:

“Free access to THE FIRST WORLDS from both LittleBigPlanet 1 and LittleBigPlanet 2”


+ FilooGaroo on August 21st, 2013 at 6:16 am said:



+ mafon2 on August 21st, 2013 at 8:23 am said:

So… it’s here so i wouldn’t need to swap LBP1 and LBP2 discs?


+ MLP_Erick on August 21st, 2013 at 8:43 am said:

Will it still be limited to 4 players per party?


+ jackwhitefoot on August 21st, 2013 at 9:10 am said:

Greater adventures? Hm….is this pointing at a possible 3rd game for PS4? Possibly in the third dimension?


+ Welmosca on August 21st, 2013 at 11:48 am said:

I’m not sure what LBPHub is all about…I mean for avid players of LBP like me…who played the hell out of LBP and its constantly playing LBP 2….also I have tons of DLCs from both titles…so will I have any benefits with LBP Hub?…….sorry I’m kinda confused here.Steven…?

Also where is TLoU costumes?…the wait is killing me.


+ SouthSideChris on August 21st, 2013 at 4:33 pm said:

Its nice to hear that the Cross Controller DLC will also be included. I think more people will get a chance to experience how cool this DLC is now with LBP Hub since the Vita is now cheaper and LBP Hub will be free to play. This is going to be great! Do you guys have a release date for this yet? I cant wait to get my hands on it.


+ snickelsox on August 21st, 2013 at 9:03 pm said:

Was the Memoriser ever brought to LBP2? If not, will it be brought into LBP Hub?



+ Vaughndo-30 on August 22nd, 2013 at 3:17 pm said:

Are all the levels free? (Not including Dlc level kits)


+ D-Squad3 on August 22nd, 2013 at 9:01 pm said:

So is the gameplay like LittleBigPlanet?


+ platinumSackboy on August 24th, 2013 at 2:35 am said:

Wait, 16 levels? Do they mean 16 sets of levels like: Da Vinci’s Hideout, The Canyons, The Wedding, The Cosmos. Like that?


+ Acoop397 on August 25th, 2013 at 10:58 am said:

Steven just when is this Coming out? because I am yery pumped up for this moment where I can finally play more levels and a filled goodies bag! :D I have been waiting for this moment for a long time! XD
