Thank you for updating the Sony Entertainment Network to allow auto download to PS3. I noticed one glitch/annoyance. If while the PS3 is already on and I purchase a game from the web store, it will not auto download until I turn it off and on again. It seems it only triggers an auto download only when the PS3 is turned off. Please change that to always check and trigger auto download. Yes, I am lazy. I like buying games from the web store instead of the built in store.

Also, please create two step verification for the online store. I want to feel secure.

Finally, please allow users with PayPal to auto pull funds to cover balances. If I do not have enough funds, I have to first add the funds and then make the purchase. Instead, I would like to be able to do the purchase and have the system pull the amount needed from PayPal.

I am thinking about getting a PS Vita. There are 23 digital downloadable games that I want for it. Do you think there will be a price cut or a hardware refresh of the Vita for E3? I am trying to decide if I should get it now or wait until E3.

Could we please get some new LBP avatars? There haven’t been any since the release of LBP2, why didn’t LBPV or LBPK give us any?

Thanks for the new LBP Karting Picks! I was getting tired of always seeing those winter and Mario Kart-themed ones. Please keep them coming. Adding them to my queue now.

@Steven. Thanks! When I go to the Team Picks section in-game, it’s always the same ones at the top and I have to drill down the list quite a few times to see any I haven’t done yet. I now see on there are so many more I wasn’t aware of. This is great! It would be nice if there was a way to randomize them in-game so these newer ones with lower plays are more visible. To be honest, some of the ones near the top were created pretty early in LBPK’s life, and just aren’t as good as some of these others.

    That’s a known bug with the game, the Team Picks should be displaying with the latest Team Picks being displayed first.

    We’re currently working on fixing it and should hopefully be able to update this in-game soon.

@Steven. That’s good to hear! Looking forward to getting back in the game.

Oh, and LittleBigPlanet Vita crashes *every single time* that I try and view a profile (even mine). It’s really annoying.

Very glad to see Team Picks on LBPK! :)
Now, how about a fix so we can race the Team Picks without getting kicked!!?
Is that on the way as well (it’s going on 7 months since the release…)???????

The Karting team picks in this blog are not the same ones that appear on

Thanks for the picking my character based levels, I put a lot of time and effort into making that control system work and those pink ribbons look so nice on my planet :)

    No problem, it was an incredible pair of levels!
    I personally loved playing LittleBigPlanet in a first-person mode! :)

@Pookachoo: you need to hit “moar” to see the ones highlighted in this blog post. Don’t worry, I saw yours and added them to my queue as well. ;)

People in México doesnt celebrate may 5th, they never do, why do people in the USA, think they do celebrate it as a national celebration?

Believe it or not, I’ve been playing LBP since the beta for the first game, and I’ve always managed to miss this costume.

Not this time!

Compared to some of the bugs mentioned here, this is a minor issue. But I’m still annoyed that we don’t have an option to turn off SIXAXIS controls for sackboy’s head in LBP Vita.

I just bought little big planet vita and thought it would come with online pass but it doesn’t.. I’m still bummed out that’s like paying almost $40 if I want full access.. Or does it?

GintokiSsan said:

Trying to download the Mariachi costume for LBP2 from the PlayStation Store but it keeps saying an error has occurred.

PinballMagic said:

May 25th, 12:42 pm

I also tried to download the Mariachi costume for over two weeks (starting during the one week timeframe mentioned). Kept getting an error saying I did not own the LBP programs it works with. But I have LBP, LBP2, LBP2 Special Edition, LBP Karting, AND LBP Vita…all bought new (physical media). All were installed on their respective devices, but still got that message. Very irritating! :-)

Sony…any way I can still get this costume? I even play trumpet! :-D
