Water, yea.

Plushies? Should I just give up ever getting more content that isn’t user generated? Aside from the token $2 costumes that is.

the water update & Pirates of the Caribbean DLC sounds like fun, guess I need to add some funds to my wallet so I can get the DLC, I hope maybe some more like this are coming

Hey Mark and or Media Molecule…

I bought the MGS4 Level pack 3 months ago, and they still ‘fail to load level’. I’ve tried everything, deleting my game data, everything.

I can’t reach anyone at MM or Sony. Please get back to me if you can! I really want to play the MGS4 levels, and unlock the materials and everything.

Please hit me back.

Linklex7 said:

December 11th, 7:08 pm

Well over a year, and LBP can still find a way to keep me interested in it.

LittleBigPodcast said:

December 11th, 7:12 pm

How about a “Podcast” category! We have an empty shelf! lol…Anyway, that’s SO cool that anpostteller won! When we first found his level, it only had about 300 plays! It needed to be fshowcased like this! PS: I heard he’s working on a sequel…shhh…you didn’t hear that from us though, ok! =)

LILBUDDY2000 said:

December 11th, 7:16 pm

Well I just checked out some levels from Anpostteller and they are absolutely brilliant! What a great game.

December 12th, 12:14 am

Ummm… So WHY exactly do we have to PAY for an upgrade that really should have been in the game to begin with? I mean, we’ve been begging for water for HOW long now, only to find out we’re going to have to shell out (likely a minimum of) $5 for some Disney-branded crap-o-rama just to get it??? WTF, MM?!? PLEASE sell us some level packs that aren’t user-generated and GIVE US WATER FOR FREE! Make us pay for a pack of creation tools that are water-related separately, that’s fine, but we should be GIVEN water for being so patient. We’re thirsty and now Disney gets to financially benefit from that thirst. Not cool, fellows, not cool at all…

“Because picking a winner from these sets of nominees was so hard, each nominee for each category will automatically be awarded with a Crown for making it that far, and the winner of each award will be immortalised in LittleBigPlanet history as the winner of a Sackie, get a pat on the back, and if they are really lucky, a good-night kiss on the forehead and a cup of warm milk.”

At least create a special section for the nominees and winners in-game showcasing their work. I really don’t understand why SCE and MM are reluctant to promote outstanding community levels, aside from a few blog posts. What is the point in putting in all that effort to create something great if it is going to get swamped by Trophy levels after 2 days?

A Crown seems a pretty weak reward. For such a great game the community support has been atrocious. If there were a section devoted to top community levels for the week people would come back again and again.

Einhander138 said:

December 12th, 11:25 am

Is there a category for best use of censorship in this games?

Cause there have been quite a few instances.

Fahdi said:

December 12th, 1:14 pm

Just an inquiry for one of the MM staff:

My PS3 was bought in NA since I was living in Canada, but I moved to the UK and bought LBP there since it was region free. My PSN store is the Canadian one and I want to purchase the DLC. Is the DLC region free as well? Will the MGS pack and the new water pack work with the UK LBP?


leoking_online said:

December 12th, 1:15 pm

i hope thay add the water dlc soon, maye taht will make me play LBP like whn i first got it

mcjoshua said:

December 12th, 1:33 pm

When are we getting the marvel & sonic costumes for LBP?

Rhez said:

December 12th, 2:34 pm

I want a Sackie! boy do i need to get back to LBP and get to work. Anywho loved the Ezio costume. I laughed so hard at the little cardboard hidden blades. That’s what I love about Sackboy and LBP its a huge world of “Let’s Pretend”.
