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”

GameStop & – Are you as excited for the release of TRON: Legacy as we are?  If so, head on over to GameStop and pre-order to get the exclusive *Clu* Sackboy costume from Tron: Legacy. 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.

hey Mark i know this comment is gonna be way off topic but since you are SCEA marketing Manager i wanted to ask you how can i get all the God of War Ghost of Sparta DLC content , im a psp GO owner and day 1 God of War Fan , you can bet big $ that 1 if not my most anticipated title in all platforms this year is Ghost of Sparta but as a PSP GO owner im very concerned about all the DLC CONTENT :
God of War: Ghost of Sparta Original Soundtrack
God of War : Ghost of Sparta PSP Theme
God of War : Ghost of Sparta PS3 Dynamic Theme
God of War : Ghost of Sparta Playstation Network Avatar
God of War: Ghost of Sparta Legionnaire Skin

David Jaffe – God of War
Cory Barlog – God of War 2
Stig Asmussen – God of War 3
Ru Weerasuiya – God of War : Chains of Olympus
Dana Jan – God of War : Ghost of Sparta

i dont wanna miss any of that , why dont you guys have the option to pre order the game online thru PSN so we psp GO owners can get the pre order goodies at the same time that the other psp owners ? come on its God of War we are talking about here man , 1 of sony’s biggest franchises EVER and probably alongside Metal Gear Solid : Peace Walker the best PSP games this year

StargamerX said:

July 23rd, 9:06 am

Oh, quick question: If you buy the collector’s edition I assume it doesn’t matter where you preorder from, correct?

BlooodyCow said:

July 23rd, 9:11 am

Not buying the collector edition for LBP2 should be consider a crime.

madmarsrocks said:

July 23rd, 9:18 am

Ahhh…..I want that collector’s edition…You made me VERY happy…even more than Sackboy!


July 23rd, 9:21 am

wow i could not be more excited about the collectors edition

this news has truly made my day

xRosZz said:

July 23rd, 9:26 am

Will this Collector’s Edition also be available in the European Country? Want this really bad.

jjmusicman said:

July 23rd, 9:27 am

Where can I pre-order the limited edition? It’s not on :<

SykoTech said:

July 23rd, 9:27 am

Awesome. I was beginning to think that this would be delayed to 2011. But once again, Media Molecule has shown me why I shouldn’t doubt them.

Bring on the future Game of the Century.

Solid-Snake-Eyes said:

July 23rd, 9:36 am

I wanna know if LBP1 level packs and all other types of DLC will work in LBP2. I know they’ve said that the DLC costumes will, but I haven’t heard about level packs or stickers and stuff.

Ghostly_Hero said:

July 23rd, 9:36 am

Europe better get some kind of CE as well!

zekececil14 said:

July 23rd, 9:37 am

This is my b-day present, which was back in June. I was going to pre-order but decided to wait for a bonus. Boy what a bonus, a whole collectors edition. FYI Amazon has it NOW couldnt find at GameStop.

GGod0 said:

July 23rd, 9:38 am

Yes, yes, YES!! SOLD!!!
THIS is how you do a Collectors Edition.

Destiny89 said:

July 23rd, 9:39 am

Hey guys oh why release it in same month as GT5?:(
tho im so excited!
Cant wait!
the date just isnt right to be honest. i mean Nov has GT5 and CoD: Black Ops

phatmercado said:

July 23rd, 9:41 am

Nice. I’ve never bought any Limited Editions before so this will be my first. Great job MM! Gotta hide the Plushie from my wife and kids! My Plushie!!! (voice of Gollum)

kzarling said:

July 23rd, 9:44 am

One thing: Stop making “limited” editions. If people want one of these things, they should be able to buy it. I mean, sure, make it time limited – we can’t expect these things to keep being manufactured past a certain point – but the number of preorders available should be unlimited.

Solid-Snake-Eyes said:

July 23rd, 9:46 am

They better release this CE in Canada, and for the same price. I want to buy it. We weren’t allowed to buy the Peace Walker Big Boss pack in Canada. Can you tell us if the CE will be available in Canada?

kingpsyz said:

July 23rd, 9:47 am

I really can’t wait til you announce which retailers I can pre-order that collector’s edition from…

I NEED that edition.

poohFan said:

July 23rd, 9:50 am

I want the collector’s edition. Is it going to be available to order at Game Stop?

edgarj said:

July 23rd, 9:53 am

Any store I choose to preorder the Collectors Edition it will have the costumes right?

Morphine16 said:

July 23rd, 10:00 am

doesnt seem worth 79.99 for PSn swag and bookends, it will be 29.99 in 2011 just wait

nateprokrasti said:

July 23rd, 10:00 am

I had vowed to never purchase another CE again after Halo 2. I can’t pass this up though.

ChronoJoe said:

July 23rd, 10:00 am

That’s really awesome.

I really hope you guys have a Toy Story level pack (not just creation pack, with levels too) and more TS costumes lined up. That’d be phenomenal!

cell989 said:

July 23rd, 10:06 am

Im going for the collectors edition

Stevoisiak said:

July 23rd, 10:07 am

Wait. Are you saying that I have to CHOOSE my preorder bonus, and I can’t get all of them? Man, I thought I was just going to preorder this without a second thought, but now I have to think about where I get it from.

Stealthur said:

July 23rd, 10:10 am

Hey! I went to Amazon and GS’s websites but I can’t preorder yet? What’s up with that!

Janks01 said:

July 23rd, 10:10 am

So to those who get the collectors edition, it wont matter where we pre order it as it comes with all the bonuses?

Stealthur said:

July 23rd, 10:11 am

@stevoisiak No, with the limited edition you get all of them!

July 23rd, 10:12 am

This is a great Collectors Edition but idk if I will have the money for it but I really want the Jak and Daxter costumes, so I wanna know are they going to release them as DLC later on?

LaughinMan said:

July 23rd, 10:12 am

I just preordered the Collector’s Edition from!

Was just put up on the website a few hours ago i think.
GameStop and Best Buy didn’t know anything about it yet, so i went the safe route.

saintaqua said:

July 23rd, 10:12 am

I must have that collectors edition!
You should have a dress up your sackboy contest for everyone who buys it!

will the collectors edition be sold in Canada?

Canuck4Life said:

July 23rd, 10:23 am

Hi Mark,

I’m so excited for the collector’s edition! Quick question: I might preorder a copy from and go to the States to pick it up (I live in Canada). Will the US voucher codes work on the Canadian PSN?

memberop said:

July 23rd, 10:23 am

No free shirt love for those of us who couldn’t attend?

bakenzaki said:

July 23rd, 10:29 am

When will the psp get some legit DLC(by legit I mean pop-culture related)?


July 23rd, 10:31 am

The collectors edition sounds good. Will it be available for pre-order in the UK?

phinnv8 said:

July 23rd, 10:32 am

Day1 purchase for me. LBP is one of the few exclusives on PS3 that make it work buying the console for (it certainly isnt for the extremely lacking psn features). LittleBigPlanet 2, Uncharted, Demon’s Souls, GT5. All awesome. Can’t wait for LBP2.

Never could platinum LBP1, make it a tiny bit easier this time, it wasnt the Play or Create trophies, it was the sharing, getting those silver trophies for having tons of people playing and hearting you, just couldnt do it.

BlackIceJoe said:

July 23rd, 10:33 am

This is awesome Gonzo the great. I hope after the game comes out the characters will be put on PSN. Because I do not want to have to buy the game several times to get Ratchet & Clank & the Alien from Toy Story.

Also will more Toy Story characters come to LBP2. I also hope Animal & Fozzie Bear will be the other Muppets to come to LBP2 too. Thanks for bringing these cool characters to LBP2 & I can’t wait to see what other ones will join the gang in LBP2 next.

@ #134 LaughinMan

Yep. That’s what I did as well just pre-order it around 1:15pm EST at Am living in Canada, so am gonna use as my “secure pre-order” for now and look around during the weekend on and for the solicitation too and cancel the pre-order.

MegaWolfXD said:

July 23rd, 10:37 am

CE or not for me, I’m making this a day one purchase. I love the first one, and LBP2 will make me not want to drop my controller. Keep up the amazing work, Media Molecule.

tigown said:

July 23rd, 10:37 am

This might be the first game I ever Pre-Order.

Minck said:

July 23rd, 10:39 am

I wasn’t going to buy it right away but this is the best collectors edition/pre-order goodness I have ever seen!!!! And Gonzo!!!! I just died and went to heaven! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make a Sesame Street pack!! Playing as Super Grover would be a dream!!!

Great job guys :)

Art_of_Ronin said:

July 23rd, 10:41 am

@ #137 Canuck4Life

Yep, just pre-order it like I did on and let it ship to you. LittleBigPlanet 2 CE is able to ship outside of U.S., so why cross the border and get the game? If you would like no shipping cost hassle and qualify as a redirect shipment, I would recommend you to use this website ( The only thing is you have to pay up front once you place the pre-order with I check their total pricing from and its around $7 USD cheaper if you go through them. with standard international shipping total at $99 (odd change) USD with shipping at $92 (odd change) USD

Best to secure one from if you can and once or has it up, cancel the pre-order and order it at or for free shipping.

And yes, the voucher code works with your Canadian account because we are part of North America region PSN Network along with the U.S.
