Gong Hei Fat Choi!

Light those firecrackers, collect ‘lai see’, and eat all the ‘niangao’ you can; you will need all the energy you can get for LBP’s latest update.

In case you’ve missed our update last week, in celebration for the Lunar New Year celebration that officially begins today, 1/26, we’ve got matching SackBoy and SackGirl Chinese New Year Costumes for FREE on the PS Store.

But don’t wait — much like the celebration of the Chinese New Year, this seasonal costume is available for 10 days only, and it may never be available again.

LittleBigPlanet art - Chinese New Year

Once you have the Chinese New Year Costumes downloaded, and you’re looking for a creative way to battle and challenge your friends with the Chinese New Year costume, check out the latest video creation presented by Media Molecule for inspiration. We break down the art of Survival Challenges by giving the ultimate creator some insider’s tips, including:

  • Ingredients – Recipe for all materials required to make your own Survival Challenge
  • Moving Entrance – How to accurately place your Start and Finish entrances
  • Crank Up The Difficulty – Proper methods in making your mechanics and contraptions more challenging through time

  • Don’t Forget The Instructions – Make your levels more fun and accessible by adding instructions to give the player a form of guidance.
  • Community Examples – Survival Challenges created by fans of the LBP Community. See if your creation was selected by Mm as a challenge example!

So bounce, jump, skip and descend your way to create your own LBP Survival Challenge.

Be sure to share them with your fellow LBP Community as this may inspire a future LittleBigChallenge creation.

From all of us at LBP, ‘Niannian youyu’ (a wish for grand and harmonious year)!

  • I would like to see more of these tutorial videos b/c they are good

  • i love this game.

  • there is only one problem i have with LBP (only one)whenever im playing online in lbp and i build a lvl and rewind it takes a while to rewind sometimes up to a min but when im not playing online it rewinds fast

  • Asia got this DLC last night, is it really that hard to update the store with a 100kb file?

  • woot luv the costumes when is the counter gonna be fixed sice day 1 it has never worked grrrrrrrrr please fix soon ive said this a ton of times and so has every one else please fix this NOW

  • mugen02, you do realize that people have DIFFERENT working hourss around the world right?? maybe just MAYBE they are ahead of us in hours so when their (MMs) employees are told “release the update monday morning” asia has monday while USA is still in sunday…. ^_^

  • I’ve gotta get this.

  • @56 TNTokNY

    I’m referring to the laziness of PS store staff that they can’t update the store M-F when new content is available.

  • Wow this all looks great. So there’s no way to access these from the PC Store because Ill be away from my PS3 for a while and wont get to Donwload them.

  • The free costumes are great, since I end up getting them all.

  • Gong xi fa cai! Xie xie ni SCEA he Media Molecule!

    Just dusting off my rusty Mandarin skills before I go back to college XD. Thanks for your continuous support of this creative game, Mm! ;)

  • Yeah my first comment :D

    Ik hope that MM makes more of this video’s. There very usefull and help you understand how they created there levels :D

  • this is older than the ps1.

  • Still waiting for the Youtube-feature!
    And hope this online “Failed to load all user profiles” bug will get fixed soon :(.

  • Good stuff.

    I just downloaded it from the UK store.

  • What would really make eveyone is is some sort of free expansion pack which includes levels.

  • Will we in EU be getting the God of War pack?

  • Will you be making any more level expansion packs for LBP

  • Hello there.

    Are Europeans getting the same DLC this Thursday? It might yes… is so, good work.

    If it’s a “no” I have to assume that it’s because we are in the Stone Age yet, trying to get the wheel not to look as a pentagon, so hey, we’re getting what we deserve… I assume too that Europe is the most pro-PlayStation zone, so it’s obvious that we deserve nothing for this reason.

    BTW Thanks for nothing, related to the release of KillZone 2 two days before USA! Why not in the same day? Why not 25th February worldwide? It’s already gold!, isn’t it? And it’s a month away… Jesus Christ, something is not working in Sony, that’s for sure brothers.

    Best wishes.

  • *I meant “if so” instead of “is so”, obviously. Just wanted to point that out ^^.

  • Jeff,
    I think my cookies problem has been fixed (at least on my side) as I have stayed log-in to the blog for five days.

    :D

  • I have a problem with my game. It will not save anymore. I am stuck at a certain point of progress. For example I have all the Metal Gear based Trophies but whenever I turn my game of I am only at Act3. This also means that I have to finish all my levels in one sitting, otherwise publish incomplete levels and copy them back the next time I play. Is there going to be a fix for this or is my save file just Corrupt? I really don’t want to lose all the prize bubbles I got from the story mode. :(

  • This is AWESOME. PLEASE add these videos somehow into the game. Would really make it cool. Especially if you found a way to link to the levels directly from in the game.

    Imagine if you did the same thing with the weekly MMpicks!

  • This was a very informative blog post.

    Thank you.

  • When do we get to create online with friends? It’s been a few months now and it was said that it would be added after release. Also where is my FFVII costume pack? Or is that to be released when the Movie come to blu-ray?

  • Great Blog Post Mm, thanks for the tips.

    Happy Lunar New Years everyone.

  • thanks for the tips, now i just wish i could get a download to up my creativity levels…

  • little big planet is my no1 played game atm.
    these chinese costumes will go great on my sackboy.
    i want to buy the metal gear solid game pack and costumes but i don’t have a credit card. do you think you could make it so we can put money on our psn on pc via paypal?? or release the game cards in australia. people would buy so much more stuff if they could just use a prepaid card.

    also do you think you could make rockband/guitar hero track previewable in the store. im not sure what song some of them are i wuold like a preview. i haven’t got rockband yet because it is impossible to find it in stores in austrlaia. i looked at like 4 different places and none have the game/guitar bundle.

  • OMG, PSN ID! also , super happy with this, and Jeff you do realize that this stuff definitely didn’t come out Thursday but came out Tuesday right?

  • this game is soo simple, yet sooo much fun!! I love this game.. and for those people who say it sucks its because they havent played it yet.. and to really like this game u need to play it..

  • Very cool couple of outfits, downloaded them Monday and like them a lot! Also thanks for putting up on the news selection in the game those survival levels!

  • the halloween mask will not be released this year?

  • cool, thx MM! I’m working on a level atm, most likely a Survival Challenge as it’s an easy first level to publish for newb creators like me.

  • Love all the content, patches, fixes, costumes, everything!! the entire family thinks LBP is the best game ever made.
    Good Job Sony and MM

    “If there’s one area that Sony has been consistently working to improve, it’s what you get with that free online service. Better still, Sony seems to be keen to listen to what the consumers are demanding most — often on the official blog’s comments section. Upscaling of games and movies? Added after some moaning. Custom themes and wallpapers? Custom soundtracks? Yep, added. And who could possibly forget the two biggest improvements to the system: Trophies and in-game XMB, both of which were openly begged for pretty much since launch.”
    ~IGN

    It’s nice knowing Sony reads these blogs and listen to their customers.

    My suggestion:
    A feedback section directly on the PS3’s XMB so each user could write directly to Sony. (set rules should apply to weave out the vast mail people would send, possibly charge money so only those serious about their idea would send it.)

    Benefits of User: better system over time, closer relationship with Playstation.

    Benefits of Sony: little profit, satisfies users, maintains “evolving system”, creates more fan base, and better relationship with customers.

    A feedback section would definitely put the PS3 leaps and bounds ahead.

  • Jeff the LBP DLC came out on Tuesday!
    Early…

  • to media molecule.. this is a great game.. i enjoy it but please add

    I REALLY HOPE TO SEE LITTLE BIG PLANNET ON PSP… OR PSP2

  • I go onto the store and this site to check for new content and what do I find? Several really cool new costumes and Media Molecule making MY pre-order costume pack available for everyone. Thanks for making my effort to pre-order pointless. Now, how about you make the “day one” t-shirt available or something? Don’t get me wrong, I’m still playing the game months after release, mostly due to the bug that corrupted my game data, but still… why you gotta make it so those of us who pre-ordered for the God of War pack really did so for no reason? Well, maybe for the stickers… big woop. Now, if it had been a level pack with the costumes, I probably would have purchased it.

    Actually I would pay another $30 for a sack person costume designer or editor that would allow me more control and detail in creating my sack person. Yes, I’m a costume junkie.

  • i cant find a way to move the entrance to the finish plz may u give another example on how u do it.

  • seriously Sony, where the heck is the Ratchet costume? C’mon already.
