can you get collectors edition from game stores without pre ordering?

TwinDad said:

December 3rd, 10:41 am


Mark said there was a cap on the number produced and that pre-orders are reaching that magical number. I would say it’s not likely, but it is possible you might find them sold at stores that don’t take pre-orders.

Ok now that you’ve told us this wheres the post about the LBP2 Week 1 and the Space suit?

Kirkpad said:

No offense, but I still expect community breaking features. The pins don’t seem to do anything, and the best way to access the community levels is from the website. Why can’t the functionalities of the website be put in game instead of us having to use a computer or quit LBP just to access the website. This is even worse than the NEWS PAGE WHICH IS STILL IN LBP1 AND HASN’T CHANGED FOR A YEAR.

Can you see why I would expect pointless features in LBP2 when there were unfixed features in LBP1, which were completely ignored in place of Disney DLC?

LBP Beta invite and free collector’s edition copy sent to my home address – Hopefully in progress…. ;-)

If they really want to have us make GAMES they should add a Save Progress function to levels.

Hmmm . . . Christmas wrapping paper for a game that was supposed to come out before Christmas but . . . but . . . . it just makes me sad :(

I know its kinda late, but does anyone know if we can still pre-order Collectors Edition of this game at like Gamestop or something? I really want that Sackboy Plushie, plus all the goodies that come with the CE.

December 3rd, 6:27 pm


I preordered just yesterday from Amazon. Check the Gamestop website. Since you get all preorder DLC anyway, it doesn’t really matter where you do it at.

I love LittleBigPlanet. I cannot wait for the enormity and epicness of this game.

Technageek said:

December 3rd, 10:00 pm

I so loved the first game. (my first platinum trophy) 2 looks even better. The wife the children and myself are looking forward to it.

MileStone1 said:

I think Mark is currently BRB XD

fruitsalad01 said:

December 4th, 6:18 am

What all will the beta feature? I mean, is it a few levels, or online, or what? Great job! LBP2 is going to look amazing. I am also not sure if I understand this right, so will the LBP1 DLC be in LBP2?

korky0429 said:

December 4th, 1:33 pm

is this in 3D?

digitalman123 said:

December 4th, 2:39 pm

@217: No. Mark already said so.
I’m actually okay with that. When I got the Sly Collection, I found out I can’t use 3D with it ’cause I don’t have a 3D TV. ANGER!!

tman596 said:

December 4th, 5:28 pm

Well, I was looking forward to the 1st cover art. When 1st saw the new one I immediatly hated it. But, I know I’ll get used to it.

Moleynator said:

December 4th, 6:54 pm

@People talking about 3D

I talked to Alex Evans 2 months ago and he said they might make a 3D game. The problem is he can’t actually see 3D so he would have to ask other people if his programming was working right! :p

He said they might do one anyway, but it wont be LBP. Sorry hopefuls! :/

I’m so glad my birthday is in December x3…all kinds of cool games come out! :D

VGExplorers said:

December 5th, 10:22 am

I want this game so bad I am saving up to preorder the Collectors Edition. I hope I get the beta because I want to know the know the basic feel and look of the game.

But there is one and only one thing I’m worried about,
lag. Online lag, the prequel suffered from it and I couldn’t play Couch Co-Op on an online level without lag.
My friend moved a while back and he still plays LBP1. I want to be able to play LBP2 with him across the state without lag, 25-30 FPS would be perfect.

If I may suggest some things as an LBP2 Beta alumni myself:

YouTube Integration: Sony made it possible over a year ago to record videos in-game, and export them to your hard drive, or to YouTube, that would interest many people.

Quality picture exporting: Meaning, when I take a picture in-game, and export it to my hard drive, it’s always a smaller image than my screen. I think that you should make the image import as large as your screen at the time. I use HDMI, so if the image were to fit my screen, that would be appreciated. Same with the video if you decide to do that.

Picture importing: I know that this has had it’s fair-share of rumors in the last game, and possibility of legal-issues, but it’s more possible that copyright infringements would be made now that we can do voice acting. So importing pictures from our hard drive would be nice, considering my pod is so bland!

solidejake said:

December 5th, 12:36 pm

Part 2
Twitter/Facebook integration: More and more people are doing this as well. Your actions are sent to Facebook & Twitter.

Exporting music from LBP2: Meaning, if we make a song in LBP2, would it be okay to ask that you convert it to .MP3 or other formats? I can make great songs inside there.

Lastly; USB Keyboard (piano) compatibility: I am getting a MIDI USB keyboard soon, and it would be very nice if I were able to plug that in my PS3 and use it in LBP2.

Thank you.

I can recall that I AM a fan of LittleBigPlanet!

PS: On January 18, 2011, I will buy LittleBigPlanet 2 Collector’s Edition, and included with the LBP2 BD is a free downloadable copy of Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves!

AltoBoy55 said:

December 5th, 3:02 pm

Mm, I know these aren’t the kind of comments you want on this but please read on. I am a 13 year old boy and my mom was diagnosed with brain cancer in april, shortly after my baby brother was born. She has been having siezures ever since and things seem to be getting worse. Little Big Planet is my life and I play as often as I can. Could you please help me get the Beta for LBP2? Lachy_Stone has already said that since he is a PS+ user if he gets it he’ll give me the code but I heard that the chances are slim for most people. Please send me the beta so that I will have something to occupy myself with until January, thanks.

pm41224 said:

December 5th, 3:04 pm

As stated, MM said that not all PlayStation Plus subscribers can get it.

pm41224 said:

December 5th, 3:07 pm

There is no mention of the USB keyboard compatibility at this time.
But good news is, you CAN export .mp3 music onto LBP2!
I don’t know if there will be any Twitter/Facebook integration but we’ll wait and see…

December 5th, 3:39 pm

im gonna pre-order the collectors edition and the wrapping paper is so cool can my collectors edition can come already wrapped up =)

Is the collectors edition come to Honduras that is in Central America?

And I have a suggestion can you make something show the connection,sometimes i really want to see how my internet is.

Tomm4118 said:

December 5th, 4:06 pm

Thanks for agreeig with me. Glad to know I’m not the only one who doesn’t like the new collectors cover. As an artist, I agree with your comment about letting the public decide what’s best. When you have two different designs, you need a seconnd oppinion before you present it to the public.
I really wish we could of voted for the winning cover. What is it about the over use of the colors blue and neon grean that turns me off so much. I wonder if its all part of the PS Move Theme?

digitalman123 said:

December 5th, 4:07 pm

@224: Prehistoric Moves is free with CE? Now I REALLY hope I get Move for Chirstmas.

pm41224 said:

December 5th, 4:22 pm


Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves does come in LBP2 standard edition and LBP2 collectors edition!

pm41224 said:

December 5th, 4:26 pm

No offense but Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves is free with BOTH version of LittleBigPlanet 2!

@230 I already have the PlayStation Move motion controller.

digitalman123 said:

December 5th, 4:51 pm

@232: Good to know! Thanks for the advice! Nice to know there’s a game for the Move I want besides Eyepet.

Why is the EU Collectors Edition without doll and game cases?

I’ve been looking forward to the first edition for so long and now it’s gone… :(

digitalman123 said:

December 6th, 5:09 am

@236: Keep in mind Mm is in London. What’s in the EU CE?

digitalman123 said:

December 6th, 5:10 am

@235: Ditto, but I was in AC Brotherhood beta, a nd I’m not complaining. That was fun.

digitalman123 said:

December 6th, 6:03 am

@237 aka me: I’ve got a pre-order on the US CE, so I dunno what’s in the EU CE.

digitalman123 said:

December 6th, 6:10 am

@161: Yes, but the max quantity is reaching that magical number.
@200: January 18, 2011.

Rike123 said:

December 6th, 1:25 pm

@240 the EU CE gets everything in the US CE except for the plush doll and the book ends

makyengo said:

December 6th, 3:45 pm

This will be a day one purchase for me! I hope I’ll be able to get a CE version of the game.

Frodude64 said:

December 6th, 7:11 pm

You HAVE to make a “Sack Lunch” costume! His body would be a brown paper bag and he would have a sandwich on his head with the little olive-on-a-toothpick thing in his head!
LBP 1 and 2 FTW!!!

Frodude64 said:

December 6th, 9:09 pm

LBP 2 Collectors edition comes with…Jack,Daxter, Ratchet, and Clank. Cool! Wait….where’s Sly Cooper and the gang?

CardiacChick113 said:

December 7th, 8:40 am

foodlionslave said:

December 7th, 8:15 pm

I got an e-mail tonight with a voucher code for a free copy of Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves. I’m not a PS+ member but the e-mail was sent because someone (Media Molecule,Playstation??) considers me a dedicated LBP fan. THANK YOU SO MUCH!! Now all I have to do is go buy the PS Move & I’m all set. Come on January 18th.

foodlionslave said:

December 7th, 8:19 pm

2 more things to add.

Not bummed now, see @194. Is there going to be a day 1 launch costume like it was for the 1st LBP. That would be awesome. You could just re-release the old one.

Excalibur0123 said:

December 7th, 8:47 pm

and just slap a green tree with a 2 on the side I think not. Lets try for a new LBP2 Week 1 Shirt and or Space Suit
