LittleBigPlanet 2 for PS3

Sackboys and Sackgirls – gather ’round! New week, new LittleBigPlanet 2 featurette…this time we feature the new Grabinator! Now you can grab things, carry things and even throw things…

“What kind of things?” Small things, big things and even Sack-things. That’s right — you can carry Sackbots and other Sackboys.

And in case you missed these, here are links to the other featurettes we’ve unveiled:

  • Lame to the 5th power….

    • Yes, LAME – “L”oving “A”ll the “M”ovies “E”veryweek! (coincidentally, this is the 5th video of the Featurette series (5th power)…good call)

  • Nice! Looking forward to it!

  • With LBP2 I will not even need to buy any more games… I can just create them… this may be the last game Sony ever makes.

  • Yet another tool the creators can use to make some challenging levels…great by me

  • That basketball at the end, =] I can’t wait for this to come out.

  • Looks like fun!

  • Keeps getting better.

  • When is the next wave of beta codes going out?

  • <3 gaf


  • Curse you, time, being a constant! January 15th needs to get here faster.

  • Great news.
    Too bad there’s still a long wait ahead.
    5 days feel like a month.

  • I was so hyped to play this game this year….sigh…

  • Loves me some LBP stinks LBP2 got deleyed much like another beloved Sony game. Hopefully LBP2 will get a solid release date so GAF is not back bombing these blog posts with another botched release.

  • Hey Mark, What ever Happened to The LBP Birthday Cake Suit and Space Suit Costumes Coming on The Playstation Store? I’ve Been Waiting very Patiently for them to Appear, Thanks.

    • Stay tuned we have some DLC updates on the way.

      Re: the Space Suit, I believe that was a timed exclusive for the LBP1 launch in 2008, so don’t think that one is ever coming back.

  • LBP2 is going to be insane, with amazing things done with LBP level creator in the first one, its hard to imagine the level of awesomeness some people will create.

  • I take it these replaced the previously named “Power Gloves”. They look different, but do the exact same thing as those did, at least from what I saw in the videos. Either way, I am SO AMPED for this game. Even more than…. GRAN TURISMO 5.

    • Yeah, Power Gloves was an early name, and all the visuals in the past were placeholder (earlier versions I’ve seen are glowing hands, and big hands…)

  • @Mark Valledor
    Hahahaha, great response to comment #1. I felt like you were channeling Kevin Butler for a second there.

  • this is the game i’m waiting for

  • Bravo Mark, I like it, way to take it in stride you made my day..

  • I really enjoy seeing these new features! Keep them coming!

  • love it love it love it.
    you guys at MM never cease to amaze me.
    Do you mind me asking what your process is in developing these awesome ideas?

  • Looks amazing as always. It’s a shame I won’t be able to play it with my family when we are all off on Christmas break. But given how big this game is going to be, I’m sure we’ll be playing it for many holidays to come.

    *interest GT5 mention here*

  • Are we ever going to get a release of all these awesome songs? I love LBP trailers because their music is awesome (and the game is going to rock face, of course) :)

  • That’s right Media Molecule, keep adding more and more value to this game :). I can’t wait for January (it even comes out before the end of my winter break…so that’s awesomeness right there :D)

  • WIN again–as if that wasn’t a given for LBP2, 2011’s GOTY

  • will there Be A Bundle on the store that has all of the LBP 1 Expansions for 1 price??

  • not for LBP 2 i mean

  • @Mark Valledor: Thanks for the info concerning the rename. Either way, January 18th can’t get here soon enough!!!

  • i really want the sackboy plushie with the CE…but nothing against you guys, LBP just isn’t my style of game…we’ll see how christmas goes in the gamestop giftcard department though

  • Always great news about the creativity and fun stuff going into LBP2! I can’t wait to get this game!

    I only wish the videos went straight to the PlayStation Store cause my aging Mac plays the videos like a slideshow! Videos here seem slower than most all other sites I visit.

    • We have a few of our featurette videos up on the PS Store already – give those a look. This one will be up soon enough.

  • More beta codes going out? Oh, I am SO anxious to try this grabinator!!! Please count me in for testing! ;)

    <3 tbt.

  • Ha Ha! Awesome video!

  • OMG i love it! too bad we still have to wait >.<

  • Awesome. This game is going to win so many awards. Keep it up.

  • looks great!! i got a question tho about the little big planet collectors edition i wont be able to preorder it till jan 1st which is on my b-day will i be able to get a copy or will they be gone by then?

    • You should still be able to pre-order one by early January. Just don’t wait until the week prior to launch – that’s when all ‘sack’ breaks loose and pre-orders go thru the roof!

  • So the Grabinators are being resized? In the video the just look like gloves, but in the beta they are a lot bigger.

  • this looks so amazing

  • I’ve been on the fence about LBP since I played the demo. I know it’s the most common complaint, but the floaty controls don’t do it for me.

    However, this Grabinator has caught my attention more than anything else I’ve seen in LBP2. This makes me want to check it out.

    Still, I wish they’d offer an official alternative to the standard sackboy controls rather than saying that we could create whatever new kind of character we want.

  • Can’t wait. I’m very happy that you guys decided to delay the game in order to make it better and polish it. While I’d like it this holiday, I’m glad you guys put the time in, in order to make sure everything was working just right.

    2011 is going to be an insane year. Twisted Metal, LBP 2, KZ3, R3, possibly Uncharted 3, Infamous 2! I’m going to be incredibly broke. Yet, I will be quite happy about it.

  • It’s good that LBP2 has a confirmed release date. It’s nice to have some sort of communication between those people high up in the clouds and us little people down here. Two months from release, but at least it has a date.

    In a similar vein of thought it would be nice if Sony could take some time out of their busy day from all the “highly visible” GT5 promotion they are doing, to let us little people know when we might expect this game to arrive. That is of course assuming they themselves have even the vaguest idea.

  • Mark,
    I LOVE the new video!! January 18th can’t get here soon enough for me. I can’t wait to get my Collectors Edition! I am hoping for a Beta code announcement soon!
    Any word on the backpack?

    P.S. If you don’t already know they have SackBoy plushies in GameStop now for $10!!

  • It would be really cool if you could combine power ups. Like the creatinator with the grabinator gloves, or the grappling hook with the creatinator, or even have the creatinator shoot out the grappling hook while you hold onto something with the gloves.

    • mind…melting

      Not sure you’ll be able to do all that, but with that kind of imagination, I can’t wait to see what you do with the CREATE tools.

  • Hi, why is there sudden jump when using the Grabinator? Everything is so physics based in LBP, the sudden jump of objects to hand doesn’t look good. It could at least fly to your hand really fast. You could disable collisions during the fly animation if you are afraid of collisions, it would look nicer while not breaking anything along the way..

    Please report this to your programmers!

  • what is the name of the song?

  • A one time delay is not a bad thing. At least we have a solid release date AND we’re getting a better game too. Some of those levels I’ve seen from the beta build are just astounding.

    Now if only we could get confirmation on the other PS3 exclusive’s release date.

  • Can I get some help? I need people to heary me! All I need is the create trophy for the platinum! I have the level hearts, but not the SackPerson hearts. PLEASE HELP!

  • I’m probably going to come home every day eagerly awaiting to look in my mailbox and see if my free copy from the subway promo is there also do you have an estimate of when it will show up and will the dlc from the lbp goty edition work lastly please add me on the list for the lbp 2 beta im a ps plus user

  • This game is Beautiful,
    I’m waiting so long for this game.
