LittleBigPlanet: Sack it to Me – “Whole’lotta Community Gems” Edition

Mark Valledor's Avatar Posted by Marketing Manager, SCEA

The past two weeks we’ve seen tons of community activity so we wanted to dedicate this weeks SITM post to you guys…so “without further ado”…yes we read the comments. :)

What’s New in LittleBigPlanet (PSP)

But first…wanna learn more about costumes in LBP PSP? We’ve posted the latest dev story from our SCEE Cambridge team on the News Page about Sackboy’s new costumes in this new adventure.


And speaking of costumes…don’t forget to get your pre-order to get your hands on the six (6) exclusive costumes from UNCHARTED 2, Killzone 2 and MotorStorm. Click here for details and participating retailers.

Dear PlayStation…LittleBigPodcast Edition!!!

OK, this isn’t exactly LBP news…but our friends over at LittleBigPodcast have had a little too much fun with the camera and spoofed our “Dear PlayStation” spots. Our team here had a laugh and thought we’d share.

Amazing Community Finds

Some of the community packs we’re finding are really starting to catch our eye.

Check out PSN ID: TSRFJ, who has pulled together a vehicles pack through various levels – he’s keen on us making an official vehicles pack and decided to do it himself. Be sure to try these levels out and get your hands on som pre-made vehicles. Cool stuff.



If ‘tagging’ is your thing, check out the creativity oozing from PSN ID: defo-est. He’s mastered the pop-it tool to create some brilliant masterpieces.

defo-est_2 FrightFest Competition

In the mood to CREATE a scary Halloween themed level? If so, head on over to, and check out the community contest they’re running. They even made a promotional level for the contest.

Can’t wait to see the kind of levels to come out of there.

User Diary…”My Trip to Mm”

David Dino, one of our GOTY bonus level creators, made his way out to the UK and took some time to visit Media Molecule.

Dino @ Mm

Have a read on his trip…ENVY WARNING – he received a lot of swag from the team (I’m so jealous!).

If in London…Come Meet the Teams

Media Molecule and our brothers and sisters at SCEE (Europe) are hosting a Mini Fan Meet @ the London Eurogamer Expo in London on October 30.

    Not sure on the PS3 side, but with Nathan and Chloe Sackboys on the PSP (via PSP pre-orders) we know that Media Molecule and Naughty Dog are talking :)

So are we getting new levels yet? Going on 10 months now. And what about true game launching in Home and a space? These are the things we, the LBP community, want to know.

    Hey Spy,

    Re: Levels – new levels? For sure there are plenty of amazing levels within the 1 million plus online.

    Don\’t worry, you won\’t be boned, we\’re just flushing out the details (dotting the i\’s and crossing the t\’s). You should hear within a week or two.

iaint21 said:

ZellBell said:

October 23rd, 6:24 pm

will there be a ratchet and clank lbp costume pack? and what about the turkey head from a while ago, the space man suit, and the limited edition shirt that was only available for download for only 2 weeks? will those dlc be available again?

    Mark Valledor said:

    October 24th, 7:34 am

    We hear ya. All things above are being considered. Halloween is coming fast so expect sometype of announcement soon.

darthlego said:

October 23rd, 6:49 pm

This is great, but could we get more information on what people who buy LBP PSP through the PlayStation store will get? It is just that the game is coming out soon and there are so many unanswered questions.

Also, I wish an early happy birthday to LBP. On Tuesday it will have been out a year. :)

I know there’s some news about the psp v. but i still think we need more. There are only 2 vids of create mode and i would LOVE to see more.

Brapp347 said:

October 23rd, 7:04 pm

And are you really working on the psp demo? Do you have any info on if it will be released before or after the launch of the full game?

surgesnugs said:

October 23rd, 7:10 pm

What’s up with the Ratchet & Clank content Insomniac mentioned was supposed to be coming around the release of the new game?

I am becoming tired with the fact that we still don’t have online creation, when I was under the impression that we were going to get it soon after launch, through an update. Maybe I’m the only one who was under that impression. Either way, I don’t understand what’s so difficult about implementing it when the game has offline co-op creation, and when Media Molecule is making a ton of money on DLC. Why not put some of that money towards developing the feature if it hasn’t already been developed? Sorry for my rant, it’s just I’m very disappointed that I can’t make levels with my nephews that live far away.

you guys REALLY need a youtube intergration thingie, cause these video’s quality are really not good!…


October 24th, 3:10 am

about 29:
f* the GOTY, what about we who have the original? we got left behind here. i got the game late this summer so i’d like some of the ols seasonal costumes/new costumes too, or something other than music/stickers. also the bonus levels in a dlc, i’ve searched and can’t find them on the community. and before anyone gets all “they’re not that great, stop complaining!” i think i have the right to be able to make that opinion myself, BUT i can’t play them to do so. also i’d like the online SUPER-lag fixed.. great SINGLE-player game, only worth playing with friends when they’re AT YOUR HOUSE.


October 24th, 3:12 am

old seasonal**

I want a Uncharted Pack, Ratchet & Clank Future Pack, ModNation Racers Pack, DC Pack, and LOADS more but I know that I’ll bore ALL of you if I speak any more = (


October 24th, 7:47 am

About the Disney Pack, when you say “sooner than later”…will we see the pack by the end of 2009, or will be have to wait till 2010? Please say we will get the Disney Pack within the year!!

benbitdidle said:

October 24th, 9:14 am

Ah yes, this looks fascinating.


October 24th, 10:09 am

Hey mark. any new news about water for lbp? I’m just dieing on waiting for it to come out! :) And will there be any up coming add-on packs that include holding some type of gizmo or weapon to be used on lbp? Like the mgs pack has the paintinator in it that you can use in other levels. Will there be any other packs like that that you can hold a device to be used in levels or will the mgs paintinator pack be the first and last one? Thank you for your reply. :D
