Little Delay To LittleBigPlanet Content

Mark Valledor's Avatar Posted by Marketing Manager, SCEA

We know you guys have been looking forward to the next batch of downloadable content which was due to launch this Thursday, January 22. Unfortunately, we’re not going to be able to release what we had planned at this time, so the wait is going to be just a little longer before the new year’s content updates start to arrive. In order to make up for this disappointment, we thought you might like to see all the new content we’ve got lined up to come out between next week and the end of February, so hold on to your hats as there’s quite a bit!

Seasonal Content
To get the new year started in the right way we’ve got matching Sackboy and Sackgirl Chinese New Year outfits which will be available for free next week to help you celebrate the year of the Ox. At the same time you can also dress up as the world famous Groundhog in a bid to predict the length of winter. When February rolls around you’ll have no excuse for forgetting to buy a card as we release a special Valentine’s Day pack containing 12 stickers and some themed costume pieces for your Sackperson. Each of these downloads will be available for a limited time, so grab them while they’re hot!

God of War Costumes and Stickers
If you missed out on the pre-order offers to get hold of Kratos and the God of War content pack here’s another chance to get hold of an all time classic Sackboy costume. Inside the pack you’ll find Medusa and Minotaur costumes and a bunch of themed stickers to help you recreate ancient Greece in your game.

Supersonic Sackboy
In February why not pick up the pace and splash out on the WipEout content pack. Containing the WipEout costume kit and plenty of stickers to add some flavour to your game, this is a very cool pack indeed.

Early 2009 Release Schedule
Please note all these dates may change, but we’ll announce what is coming and when, each week.

Week of 1/26
– Chinese New Year Costumes – available for 10 days only.

LittleBigPlanet - Chinese New Year poster

– God of War mini pack

January 22nd, 6:07 am

It’ll be worth the wait Im sure its awesome. Can I ask though are there any plans for a God Of War level pack like the one for MGS4/FFVII/Killzone 2?

JimmyHACK said:

January 22nd, 6:07 am

*grumbles* dammit.. another week. oh well it’s all bought except GOW cause i have that already..

just go ahead and confirm Killzone 2 LBP stuff the week after Wipeout. we know it’s gonna happen, but then i guess that’s big enough for it’s own blog post.

expy said:

January 22nd, 6:09 am

IT’s worth the wait, as long as it’s done right I don’t mind at all!


January 22nd, 6:09 am

I hope this is worth the wait! But thanks for keeping us updated and not keeping us in the dark.

One more thing don’t kill us with the prices.

We need Custom XMB soundtracks. You have great music but I need a change while I play! PLEASE!

SoYoung said:

January 22nd, 6:10 am

yes keep up the good work!

I am loving the ape escape costume!

Rev_Chris said:

January 22nd, 6:13 am

wow that Ape Escape costume is hilariously awesome.

scorpio said:

January 22nd, 6:19 am

Love this stuff!!!

VincentVendetta said:

January 22nd, 6:22 am

Well… looks like I’m gonna play LittleBigPlanet tonight! I need to work on my level.

XxBigP123xX said:

January 22nd, 6:23 am

Please release the Heavenly Sword pack too.

Ramage said:

January 22nd, 6:28 am

Is it possible to specify which of these updates will be released for free?

WFMMK said:

January 22nd, 6:34 am

Speaking of level packs I’d really love to see one for Ape Escape like with more costumes like Spike and friends.

Half_life000111 said:

January 22nd, 6:35 am

I just want to know when the next level pack is coming out… if the Sephiroth costume is coming when Advent Children *blue ray* releases….. and what happened to the Steam Boat Willy rumored map pack? O.o

Zezzler said:

January 22nd, 6:37 am

Meh. at least we still are getting some cool DLC.

But what i would REALLY like to see is the FFVII Level pack and Costume pack sometime soon! Any dates?


January 22nd, 6:39 am

this looks great, too bad that most of the time the prices are too high :(

jazzyrider said:

January 22nd, 6:39 am

Costumes look ok. How about some new level packs, like MGS4? Ever since I bought that, I can’t seem to find great levels similar to that.

SilasPilot said:

January 22nd, 6:41 am

I’m kind of bummed that they are bringing out the GOW costumes, wasn’t that the reward for pre-ordering it? I guess for now I can still hold on to my Nariko costume because it hasn’t come out publicly, just yet. (I pre-ordered twice to get both costumes! :D)

reson8er said:

January 22nd, 6:42 am

Nariko costume needs to be made available for purchase, please.

michaelja said:

January 22nd, 6:42 am

So when’s the next level pack? Costumes are nice for some, but really no interest personally. Love the game though.

Barbs609 said:

January 22nd, 6:42 am

Nice too bad we have to pay for everything. Atleast the 360 gives you stuff for free. Sony has become the old Micro$oft

GamerMoney said:

January 22nd, 6:44 am

please oh please release some nariko costumes packs…possibly level packs too…i’d so buy

RurouniSaiya-jin said:

January 22nd, 6:45 am

Awesome. It always good to see your continual support of your product.

Exion75 said:

January 22nd, 6:45 am

If they add the God of War pack to the store,I expect them to do Heavenly Sword (Nariko) as well. The Heavenly Sword DLC is the only DLC I’m missing. Otherwise new content on LBP is always great,just hope they fix the “not saving” problem though.

GamerMoney said:

January 22nd, 6:49 am

so want nariko….too bad ninja theory hasn’t considered a sequel…it can take place years later with kai taking the role

Berae said:

January 22nd, 6:54 am

Thats great but will there be any other Level theme pack soon like MGS4? This one was amazing!

On a side note, Will you release Savaga moon today on the US PSN store? thanks

mahunoy said:

January 22nd, 7:01 am

Looks like somebody copy and pasted this from EU PlayStation Message Board.

feedme said:

January 22nd, 7:02 am

woo! can’t wait to get back in the swing with LBP, been playing too much R2 at the moment.These costumes/gamepacks are great.
Hopefully a patch to fix that annoying non save gamebug is coming soon aswel.

Stoffinator said:

January 22nd, 7:03 am

Anyway we can get the Heavenly Sword pack? I already got the God of war one.

Jeigh said:

January 22nd, 7:03 am

Um… I didn’t even know this stuff was on the way… Really, this wasn’t a ‘delay post’ for me so much as an ‘announcement post.’ With that in mind: Awesome! I can’t wait to get my Chinese New Year on! I’m going to party like it’s the Year of the Dog! =P You guys are just too kind.

SPOPS said:

January 22nd, 7:04 am

Love the costumes, but when are we going to get an update on game fixes? It has been a long time since we have seen a firmware update on the game. Things need to be fixed like: Ability to actually see what you are typing when you use a keyboard, decreasing in game lag, and maybe the ability to edit a level with your online friends.

SpiritThief said:

January 22nd, 7:05 am

OMGWTF!! Release dates ahead of time for PSN.

Sucks I don’t like ape escape, but I must have the eyes^^

Spartangy said:

January 22nd, 7:07 am

It would be awesome if MM could create GoW levels just like the MGS ones. Ah well keep on dreaming…

YoshiWanKanobi said:

January 22nd, 7:09 am

I agree with one of the other posters. We need more level packs to come with our costumes!

GamerMoney said:

January 22nd, 7:10 am


think that’d be considered as a software update and not firmware

ftwrthtx said:

January 22nd, 7:11 am

Waiting an extra week is OK since the team seems to be delivering a large quantity of DLC.

Thanks for the info

Cancer-fish said:

January 22nd, 7:11 am

LBP content is always worth the wait

GamerMoney said:

January 22nd, 7:12 am

We need heavenly sword costume packs and level packs

xenorevlis said:

January 22nd, 7:12 am


What are you talking about? They have constantly given us free updates and demos. 5.99 for the MGS level pack was a steal for the levels, stickers, tools, and the PAINTINATER! :)

Wideload42 said:

January 22nd, 7:12 am

IF we buy the God of War pack. Is there an option to buy without the Kratos outfit for those of us who already have it?

GamerMoney said:

January 22nd, 7:14 am


if you got the pre order then you already have everything dude

Jpaq said:

January 22nd, 7:15 am

Hot, very Hot. They all look kool. i cant wait to mix and match them all.

Especially the Wipout one. I could make a Judge Dredd Costume or red schemed Robocop or some other kool helmet guy.

It’d be kool if i could change the color scheme of the customs.

GamerMoney said:

January 22nd, 7:18 am

off topic…is that bohan avatar a psn avatar?

Berae said:

January 22nd, 7:18 am

@21 lolll you must be kidding, a developper was complaining last week because he wanted to release something for free and microsoft didnt want lol so they charged for it or maybe you are talking about the 60$ you have to pay to get some things free

God some people are just ridiculous, it is the playstaion blog why talking about another company, if you want to do so just start your own blog idiot

Scarecrow-- said:

January 22nd, 7:18 am

Yes!!! The Chinese costumes look great!
Haha love the rat :D

Must download them before they’re taken down…

The monkeys from Ape Escape!!! Hell yeah!

By the way Mark any word on a new Ape Escape? There was one announced for the ps3 but nothing since then…C’mon we need more than Ratchet and Clank! Still have my fresh copy of Ape Escape1 for ps1.

Onna76_NL said:

January 22nd, 7:21 am

Am waiting for another level pack, like the MGS4 pack.

Drackir said:

January 22nd, 7:21 am

Yay DLC! Can’t wait for this stuff.

Onna76_NL said:

January 22nd, 7:21 am

Why isn’t my avatar working?

Janto said:

January 22nd, 7:21 am

YAAAY!! another great… delay. these and other things make so freaking proud of living in Europe: missing games, missing patches, missing DLC. will we see something interesting in today’s update?

JeNeI said:

January 22nd, 7:23 am

Is the God of War mini pack free or it will be priced.As a pre-order gift it should be free.
