  • It’s torture having to wait until November to get LBP2! Any news on when we can expect the beta?

  • Is the Collector’s Edition really going to be available in Canada? I don’t see it in any retailers yet, and I’m super excited to preorder (my first CE if it is actually available to me).

  • I have one question for you guys over at the Playstation Blog:

    How do I enter the E3 Remix Challenge? I made a remix, tried posting it as a video response, but it hasn’t been approved yet. I tried messaging Mm but they said it wasn’t their business. I’m going to finally try you because I’ve got nowhere else to turn… :(

    How can I enter?

  • I can’t wait for LBP2 :P

  • Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Heroes 3

  • Evil cupcakes, can’t wait! x)

  • LBP 2 takes “play,create,share” to a whole new level!!!!!

  • i don’t mind you guys taking money out of my wallet but damn sony, do you have to be so good at it.

  • God that was cool…

  • Are the Plus members going to get into Beta or not? We need answers now!!

  • Thanks Mark! Mt. Sackmore FTW!

  • Will any of the graphics engine enhancements in LBP2 be back-ported to LBP1? Same question for limited Move support?

    Since it’s been said we won’t be able to import LBP1 story-mode content into LBP2, it would be nice to have the updated renderings, models, etc.

  • I have a couple things.
    First, OMG, LBP POD! You guys should start selling pods liie that for retail.
    Second. Where is the PlayStation Move event in Home? It never came after it was announced to come a week ago.
    Oh, last thing. Got any LBP Beta news? Maybe people who pre-ordered the Collecters Edition (like me) could get a beta code! Please, Pretty Please!

  • when are retailers in Canada going to start to take pre orders of the LBP2 Collectors Edition?

  • I like how people are assuming that MM would give out the LBP2 beta keys for those who’ve got pre-orders for the LBP2 CE. As cool as that would be, it just sounds unlikely to me.

  • I’ll say it again- I can’t wait for this game!!

    Any chance the game will come out early?

    I might as well put in a plug for my level: Montezula’s Revenge… check it out!!

  • I can’t see Sackboy’s face?! is this one of those thing where you have to believe in Sackboy in order to see him?

  • Only on Playstation! LBP Rulz!!!

  • I had my Collector’s Edition pre-ordered since the first day.

  • I don’t really see this diffrent from Lilttle Big PLanet one.
    If I could get this for free, like my cousin did from that subway game, then I wouldn’t mind but other than that, does not really look call that diffrent from the 1st one.

  • the racing look fun

  • Aw.. is this beta thing going to happen? I need my LBP fix guys.. seriously! This article only deepens the pain! Ayyy.. my darling LBP! Can’t you hear it? It’s calling for meee! >:[

  • I’d really like it if our hand items could be used as weapons to hit stuff. Hittin’ stuff is good ol’ fashioned Platformer goodness.

  • for all of the canadians i am also canadian and i pre orderd the colectors editon through eb games (online) u justt to pay a 20$ shiping fee still onley 100$!!!

  • aha sheskler 24 24th comment!

  • i’m crying in anticipation! littlebigplanet 2: NOW!!

  • i want it now

  • @27zekececil14
    Yeah I imagine you would not even dare attempt to hit me in the face.
    All im saying is that LBP2 does not really look any diffrent from LBP 1.

  • @ 35 Rene_Led

    With all the new stuff in it how does it look anything the same as LBP1? I mean I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion on matters but look at all the new stuff with in it. You can make your own music, sackbots, jump pads, new equipment, better camera views for cutscenes, levels with levels, and so much more.

    It may have the same sackboy and same type of gameplay look but with all the new things in it I would say it is different from LBP 1. You can say it isn’t but I think it is.

  • Leave Rene_Led Alone!
    At least we can enjoy the game he won’t buy!

  • Mm took the creatinator idea from a level called “play a level in creator mode” from LBP1

  • @ 37 papidj1

    I was just saying my ideas of the game on why it doesn’t seem to be the same as LBP 1 at all. I never said he had to go along with it or anything.

    If he doesn’t think that it is any different from the first. All right that’s cool. It’s his opinion.

  • going to be a Great!! game, i have the first one greatest hits goty its great. love it, cant wait till LBP2 comes out.

  • Oh…. oh my god.

    The music sequencer…. oh my god.

  • @39
    Opinion or not, he is still blind to the world around him! Most of the younger children are.

  • Is there going to be any DLC when it comes out.

  • I just watched the Music Sequencer Video. Its FRIGGING AMAZING!
    LBP2 = WIN

  • Evil cupcakes! Can we have disgruntled cookies and angry pie too? LBP2=:O + :)

  • @36 Argetlam
    Thank you for giving me an honest straight answer unlike other people on here that are bashing that I hate the game. I for one never said I disliked LBP, its just im in no hurry to get this one since it seemed fairly identical to the first one.
    So I see that in this game you can now make arcade-like games?
    Hmm alright

    @42 27zekececil14
    I don’t see what is your problem. I gave an honest opinion about this game you’re just trying to pick up an argument.
    I attend college now so I don’t have the time and luxury of playing video games like you do anymore so sorry I am ‘blind’ to the world around me

  • @2
    I’m in basically the same position here, hasn’t updated their site so idk.

  • @46
    I got mad because in MY eyes you basically dissed this historical change in the way we play a game. You said it wasn’t that much differant from LBP 1, or in other words “Unneeded.” You are blind because it is very obviouse this is VERY unique. I can create my own music, movies, racing games, FPSs, you name it. Those are not just levels, they are GAMES. That was not possible in LBP 1, therefore how can it be the same or nearly the same? Your comment was like walking into a bar and yelling FUK YOU! to everyone you saw. In this case you walked into a fanboy blog and said “Your game is not that great.” You may have thought you were giving an honest opinion, but in reality you were just bashing the hard work of the good people at Mm.

    G’day to you sir!

  • i was getting it but all of a sudden my ps3 got the yellow light of death and i dont want to buy another one WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO!?
