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:

Amazon.com – If you’re a fan of the Ratchet & Clank franchise (who isn’t), you’ll love this.  Pre-order at Amazon.com 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 & BestBuy.com – 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 & GameStop.com – 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.

I reeeealy hope Media Molecule will just go ahead and make glass sponge , 50 layer”glitch” , and a whole bunch of other stuff like that an actual thing. . . I’m sure it would help with some levels!

July 29th, 9:29 pm

Arrrrggg, sorry but im tired of the waiting game. Sony, I really doubt releasing info about pre-ordering LBP2 CE would take this long. Cmon get your heads in gear there are so many fans outside of the US that would love to get their hands on this. Please release the info about Canadian and UK/EU collector’s edition releases. Please this is really unfair.

actually it is fair mikemichaelmic because the uk gets the beta and the u.s. gets the collector’s edition. and im not sure what canada gets althogh it’s probably good to.

Will jak n’ daxter have a level pack that has ecos (blue, green(?), red, yellow, white(it’s at the end of the game), dark) and precurser orbs while also having a point deduction system to exchange points for objects(I’m pretty sure creator create things like that in lbp2).

flyinglemur92 said:

July 30th, 3:58 pm

flyinglemur92 said:

So to sum it all up, WOW the CE’s awesome and I’m uber-happy I pre-ordered it, I’d like to be picked for for beta testing, sorry for UK and EU about no CE, hurray for U.S. for having it (I’m in U.S.), flyinglemur92 should PSN-mail me about our competetitiveness, and Strawberry Shortcake is still a red-head.

petequo said:

August 1st, 1:11 pm

Alright, so let’s say you’re broke and won’t be able to pre-order or buy the Collector’s Edition… All that extra content like Ratchet, Clank, Jak, Daxter, and all the other stuff, will it still be available as DLC?

JimInPT said:

August 1st, 1:31 pm

@333: if you’re that broke, you should be looking for a job, not sitting on your butt playing videogames.

orange_sponge said:

August 2nd, 3:16 am

I Have 2 questions
1.is the collectors edition available to preorder in Canada and
2.If it sis if you preorder CE will you still get preorder bonuses?

petequo said:

August 2nd, 11:26 am

@335 Wow, that’s mature… and dude, before saying something like that you should if this is a kid or not…

digitalman123 said:

August 2nd, 1:29 pm

petequo’s got a very good point.

mpyr said:

August 2nd, 3:18 pm

So I really like the Marvel level packs for LBP. But my question is will the DLC for LBP 1 be usable in LBP 2?

Sahil6758 said:

August 3rd, 4:44 am

i cant find the lbp2 collector edition preorder on best buy

digitalman123 said:

August 3rd, 7:38 am

mpyr, if you have DLC you bought in LBP1, it goes to LBP2. I’m not sure about it being present (like, if you buy it for LBP1 when LBP2 is out).

ReptileHand said:

August 3rd, 10:16 am

Wait… will there be Ratchet and Clank costume packs in the future? I see that every pre-order bonus will be available on the PSN store save for Jak and Daxter but I’m gettting this anyways =D … Yet… you didn’t say anything about the Ratchet and Clank costumes… So will they ONLY be available through the Amazon pre-order bonus? Please respond because I’m on the verge of ordering this right now…

I don’t actually want the beta. It will take the wonderful sheen off me having the finished game in my hands…
No, scratch that, it will spend about 2 seconds in my hands and five years in my PS3.

MadGameHouse said:

August 4th, 2:14 pm

YES! Can’t Wait! LittleBigPlanet 2 will be GOY! >:D Theres noone to stop Media Molecule from being awesome! LittleBigPlanet FTW!
