LittleBigPlanet 2

While we’re entertaining the crowds at San Diego Comic Con this week with a peek at LBP2 and some free shirts.  We have some great news…

Over at camp Media MoleculeLittleBigPlanet 2 has just passed “Alpha”! Yay!  And while we still have a ton of work to do, we’re that much closer to release and we’re ready to announce some news you’ve all been waiting, so on behalf of our retail partners and our friends at Disney…here we go…

First things first…“When is LittleBigPlanet 2 coming out?” – You’ll be pleased to know we’re on schedule to have LBP2 out in stores on November 16th, just in time for the holidays.  So whether you plan to be there on Day 1 or need to put it on your big holiday ‘wishlist’, rest assured, LBP2 will be here soon.

Next item on the list…”Will there be any pre-order items?” – We’re glad you asked!  YES, we have several exciting pre-order offers through several retail partners.  Each pre-order consists of 2 parts – a very special costume offer from our partners @ Disney / Pixar and Insomniac; and 4 new “Even More Animals” costumes.  That’s 5-6 different LBP2 costumes just for pre-ordering LBP2.  Here’s a sneak peek of a few pre-order programs coming
soon to our US retailers: – If you’re a fan of the Ratchet & Clank franchise (who isn’t), you’ll love this.  Pre-order at and get 6 Sackboy costumes including exclusive access to Ratchet & Clank costumes from the ever popular Ratchet & Clank franchise.  In addition to the exclusive 2 costumes, you’ll get four new “Animals” costumes, for a total of 6 costumes.

BestBuy & – All together now…”the claw!!!”  We’ve partnered with Disney & Pixar to provide the exclusive “Aliens” costume for BestBuy pre-orderers.  We can already imagine the number of uses you guys will use this costume combined with the new Sackbots feature.  And be on the lookout for more characters thru an upcoming Toy Story 3 DLC in the near future.  Plus the 4 costumes from “Even More Animals”

Be the first to have this costume and hold tight for more TRON: Legacy costumes later this year.  And again, you also get the 4 different “Even More Animals” costumes.
