Whether you’re a current Sound Shapes player or have never heard of it before (that would just be crazy), we have something for everyone today!

Today we are releasing the Sound Shapes Ultimate Bundle, which includes the game and all of the playable add-on content, including the new DLC below. And for those of you who already own the game, there’s also an Add-On bundle that includes all of the DLC.

Sound Shapes: Difficulty Rating

Difficulty Rating

With over 30,000 community levels to play, we know it can be a challenge finding the right kind of level to play. If you’re looking for something chilled out and you stumble upon a super hard level, it can be frustrating. We now have a rating system that is dynamic based on average plays & deaths. You’ll find the difficulty rating on the level detail window just under the thumbnail image.

One thing to note is that in order for there to be a rating, a level must have been played at least 10 times. This means that many levels will not having ratings yet. Please be patient with this, as it will evolve over time.

We hope you enjoy the bundles, new DLC and community features. Sound Shapes has an incredible community of players that have blown us away with their creativity. This is for YOU!

NO!!!!!!! God damn it guys! Why, WHY more DLC with trophies? I’m sick to DEATH of having to redownload this game on 3 systems! Can’t you just make a new game or a SS sequel or something I mean ENOUGH ALREADY DAMN!

@Coody-Baroody, Man, you sure know how to have fun with video games. Don’t want to do it? Don’t do it. Simple as that. As soon as entertainment becomes work, drop it.

@FunkyTable Just another trophy collector.

Too much content! Stop giving me fun things to do you monsters!

@SlyCooperFan100 I know, someone has had to point out the fallacy in my own logic once or twice. So I thought I’d give it a shot.

Got the game when it was 7.99 before. Was waiting for a DLC sale…guess this as close as it will come to that 0.50cents per DLC sale.

Will pick up the Ultimate DLC Bundle. 7.99/14= 0.40 cents.

Much better deal actually, if you tend to buy all the art packs.

Thanks, Santa Monica.

Thanks for those nice bundles, but i would appreciate individual discounts also for those gamers which already have bought some DLC.

If you don’t care about trophies then you won’t understand what #1 is saying. It’s annoying to be nickled and dimed for trophies with DLC for 2 years when the trophies take 5-10 minutes to complete. Redownloading the game for every DLC across all platforms becomes quite annoying.

Thanks for the continued support.

So are the two NEW DLC packs included in the DLC bundle?

    Yep both new packs are also in the bundle

@SlyCooperfan100

Just another trophy collector eh? I’ve been gaming since the 1980s mate, LONG before trophies were even thought of and probably before you were born. I don’t only game for trophies but yes I do like the trophy aspect of gaming. If I was JUST another trophy collector I’d only play easy games with easy trophies wouldn’t i? Well how about Ninja Gaiden, Battlefield Bad Company1, Far Cry 2, Vanquish, Payday 1, all seriously hard games and I’ve 100% all their trophies and they’re just the ones I can think of now. I also play to 100% game completion whether a Platinum requires it or not and I hardly EVER use any kind of guide or Youtube videos like almost ALL other trophy collectors.

I am a GAMER first, trophy collector SECOND.

Who d’you think Queasy Games are targeting with these never ending DLC packs anyway? Trophy collectors. That’s why they made all 3 Platinums pop for anyone with all 3 systems.

But this is now the ELEVENTH DLC pack with trophies and easily the 8-9th time I’ve thought it’ll be the last and deleted the games and had to redownload them. That is annoying.

Coody-Baroody said:

October 14th, 10:00 am

@Funkytable

When did I say GAMING is work? Downloading, deleting and redownloading is what I’m annoyed about, not actually playing the game. If Queasy weren’t JUST targeting trophy collectors with this infinite DLC they wouldn’t include trophies with these packs. It’s just annoying to think I’m done with the game countless times only to find they’ve added more DLC again n again.

They should channel that energy and money into making us a sequel or I don’t know………….a NEW VITA GAME?

Awesome! I’m new to Playstation and have been thinking about buying Sound Shapes for a while now. I guess I’ve been waiting for something like this to come along….

    Perfect time to try it out. Hope you enjoy it!

Can we please get some professional level packs/albums instead of just sound packs?

Rezolution77 said:

October 14th, 10:29 am

Can’t say I am too thrilled with this.

This is not the first time I have bought a game through a Plus sale, only to find out a few months later that it’s on sale again but featuring the add-on content.

I would have bought the Ultimate Bundle had it been available then, only adding $5 bucks for All of the DLC.

But I have already bought a couple of them thinking I would since they put their game on sale.

Kind of annoying, really.

*Maybe do the idividual sale like what was suggested earlier, instead of makng past buyers feel cheated.*

Rezolution77 said:

October 14th, 10:34 am

Or credit the DLC purchases toward the Ultimate Bundle.

But probably too much to ask. Not too mention showing good ethics towards your fans/buyers.

HailHale81 said:

I agree this dlc is getting old. They’re pumping them out for trophy hunters only cause they know they can make some cash off people who want to keep their 100%. I wouldn’t mind if they actually made levels like the main game where you move your character around trying to beat the level in a certain time but nope that would take effort, creativity, and time. I know I’ll never buy the sequel to this game for this kind of bs they’re doing.

diskdocx said:

I actually really like the Beat School packs. I mean, they are only 99 cents, so really why the complaints?

I even replayed the game on the PS4, as it was quite good. For trophy hunters, where else can you get 15 or more silvers for a buck, and non-hunters don’t need to buy it if they aren’t interested.

You shouldn’t delete Sound Shapes, as like Little Big Planet, you know another pack is always just around the corner.

Really curious about this game.. Is this bundle cross buy with PS4/Vita?

    Cross-buy with PS4, PS3 and Vita!

Sound Shapes has been one of my favorite games on Vita. The game is fantastic, and the DLC has been challenging and fun.

The only thing that could have made it a better value would have been to add a few more Death Mode levels in addition to all the Beat School DLC. Beat School keeps me occupied for a few minutes and it’s nice to be able to figure it out. But Death Mode made my head explode several times, and I didn’t even know that was possible.

But man was that Platinum satisfying, after all the work I put into Death Mode.

I’m seeing this as an Ultimate Bundle and thinking “Is this the last Sound Shapes DLC?” Really hope thats not the case. I enjoy this game when I’m on the train.

Welmosca said:

October 14th, 12:53 pm

Very nice…I might get this DLC bundle since the only DLC I have is the one you guys gave it for free.Its great to see the continued support for Sound Shapes…keep it up.

@ 14 Coody-Baroody – All that talk…ha….if you’re annoying of redownloading the game,then just dont do it….you’re so worried about your 100% and you’ll be getting back into the game just for trophies….yet you say trophies comes 2nd for you….I find it funny,because you say you thought you were done with the game in a “I got all trophies so I’m done with this and I can delete it” way….in the end…all that talk is about trophies.

BTW what a fantastic avatar you got there sir.

So glad to see you are all still at it and Sound Shapes is still going strong. Shout out to Daft, Beej, Gez, Welmosca and all of the original shapers from back in the beginning ;)

Just bought the add on bundle for the Vita…..doesn’t include the new DLC sadly even though it states it does.

Kishnabe said:

October 14th, 7:43 pm

What I meant it doesn’t appear in the download list.

Kishnabe said:

October 14th, 7:50 pm

Now it appears free on PSN….3000 Sound Pack. Guess it working now.

I haven’t played Sound Shapes in months! This DLC sale might finally change that!

How do I go about finding my DLC on the PS4 version? I can find it on the PS3 version but not at all on my PS4 version… it says it is installed.

Mowtin said:

October 19th, 12:24 pm

I bought this for PS3 and cannot download it. For some reason only the Vita version will download to my system. Can someone please fix this?
