The Pirates! Minipack Docks at the Store
This week will see the release of The Pirates! Minipack on PlayStation Store, containing a variety of costumes from The Pirates! Band of Misfits.
The Pirate Captain, Cutlass Liz and Black Bellamy will all be coming to LittleBigPlanet 2 and LittleBigPlanet PS Vita this week. Not forgetting that they will also be taking to the track too, when LittleBigPlanet Karting releases next month. Best of all, you only have to purchase The Pirates! Minipack once and you’ll have access to these costumes across all three games!
LBPC9: Locomotion Commotion – Rare Prize Crown Contest
The LBPC Contest Crew is back with a brand new Rare Prize Crown contest: LBPC9 – Locomotion Commotion.
To enter, build a motion-oriented level for your sackperson to navigate. A level where all the obstacles are powered by kinetic energy; where starting from a single power source, the obstacles are set in motion and that motion is passed on in an ever-evolving chain reaction.
It’s a chance for you to amaze with feats of engineering; make people gasp at your Rube Goldberg-esque inventions, well-oiled clockwork or magnificent steampunk contraptions. Sounds like just the right kind of challenge for our creatively minded community!
The contest is for LittleBigPlanet 2 levels only, and the winner will be awarded a Rare Prize Crown and the LittleBigPlanet Central Pin! For more details and the full rules of the contest, hop on over to LBPCentral.com
Announcing The LittleBigProgressive Contest Winners!

Well, the wait is finally over and we can now announce the winners…
The Grand Prize winner is “Flobot Loves Bundler” by VERBAL 83! For his brilliant level creation, he will be sent a shiny new PlayStation 3, a PS Vita with 4GB memory card, and copies of LittleBigPlanet PS Vita, LittleBigPlanet Karting (PS3), and PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale (PS3 and VITA).
