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.

Sounds great but can you clarify “exclusive” so we know now? Is it never ever available again period exclusive or never available again exclusive until enough people complain or is it simply timed exclusive? Asking about the pre-order costumes and the CE DLC included and those avatars. What about adding a cool exclusive CE dynamic theme to the bundle? You have a few months to do that ;)

ZAANOS said:

Whilst games are not region locked, it’s not wise to import games which you intend to buy DLC for. DLC often only works for specific versions of the game, from it’s region.

For example, you cannot use DLC off of the EU store, on a US version of Killzone 2. So unless you intend to use be buying content out of your region (which is fraud as you have to lie, about your region) it’s not smart to import games which you will want to buy DLC for.

That aside. It’s very likely that the US preorder bonuses will either be a) bundled into a special edition for other regions, or b) sold separately on the PSN store.

woot – this is great!!!
I am in Canada but I pre-ordered just now from – let’s hope the DLC will work – but I could not risk not getting this :)

I figured we share the same store with the US right? so kinda hoping it should work. and if there will be a CE in Canada I can still cancel my US order :)

so now I just have to wait about 132 days before it gets here…

wolfzero1 said:

July 23rd, 4:09 pm

I’m definitely getting the CE now

DaveKap said:

July 23rd, 4:34 pm

I never got my sticker book after pre-ordering the first game from Circuit City. How do I know you won’t bungle this pre-order up as well?

alexbull_uk said:

July 23rd, 4:41 pm

Oh my. This looks awesome!

I hope this is coming out in the UK! I’ll pre-order!

I’m hoping the beta comes out soon. Maybe a little early for us loyal PS+ subscribers?

DREAM-007 said:

July 23rd, 5:11 pm

it’s so cool how can i order this ? from amazon ?

F1STOO said:

July 23rd, 5:21 pm

I’m kind of confused here. If you pre-order the Collector’s Edition will you get all the costumes or does it depend on where you pre-order the game?


July 23rd, 5:30 pm

wait, the collector edition is gonna have all of the dlcs or just one from the store you preorder

orange_sponge said:

July 23rd, 5:34 pm

Will the collectors edition be available in Canada?

scarecroe said:

July 23rd, 6:21 pm

GONZO!!!!! We want MORE MUPPETS!!!!!

nozomi429 said:

July 23rd, 6:57 pm

Does Gonzo only come with the Collector’s Edition, or will it be available in the Store later?

Pbjb989 said:

July 23rd, 8:05 pm

Nooooo! This is bad news, I’ll have no time to play Gran Tourismo 5 or CoD: Black Ops.

RLx3 said:

July 23rd, 8:08 pm

Damn, I want this. The plushie and the game ends look cool. Is that the final boxart? The PS move thing on the spine looks kinda obstructive.

quickfire123 said:

July 23rd, 8:27 pm

I have 2 questions. I dont want to pre order the collector’s edition then next thing you know you guy release a better edition :(. Secondly whats the 7 in the sack plushie?

larrylewis91 said:

July 23rd, 10:46 pm

can we pre-order the collecters edition at gamestop?

irishroc10 said:

July 23rd, 10:51 pm

How many CE’s are up for grabs?

Hymanator said:

July 23rd, 11:29 pm

I just placed a pre-order at gamestop, so you can definitely order it there.

Waiting an entire year or more to play this game, just to get a “GOTY edition” sounds insane to me. You must have an endless amount of patience.

I don’t normally buy collectors editions of anything, but this was too good to pass up.

x2501 said:

July 24th, 12:13 am

I WILL own the collectors edition….

LaZy_GiRL said:

theman_714 said:

July 24th, 1:51 am

PLEASE some1 tell me that the DLC will be available on the PS Store too or is it just for the Collector’s Edition it looks really really cool

Lucky13X said:

July 24th, 2:16 am

Possibly one of the best collector’s editions ever. And not the what was becoming standard $100 price. I am looking at you God of War and Gran Turismo 5.

God of War btw is on sale for $80 at most retailers. The price it should have started at really.

So thank you MM for making a collector’s edition for the collectors. You just sayed me from having to preorder the game a few times over for $5 minimum at some retailers to get some of the cool pre-order incentives.
