  • Fantastic!

    Any special launch day/week costumes offered through the game like the Spaceman outfit was given for LBP1?

    • The Launch Spacesuit will return for LittleBigPlanet 3’s release…
      It must… It’s tradition!!

      We will have more news on other launch content closer to release. :)

  • Wish Playstation Favorites Pack was available for PSN pre-orders. I only buy digital now thanks to how awesome PS Vita Remote play is!

  • Awesome!!!

  • Cool!

    I preordered LBP 3 at a super duper, probably too-cheap price at Speaking of which — will the amazon.COM preorder costumes be available for the .CA customers as well?

    on that note — i do not have a PS4 yet! My hope — and I hope you answer this with a yes! — is that in buying the PS4 version, I will be entitled to a PS3 version. Perhaps through cross-buy? that would just be swell!

  • TheUnbornNobodyX

    Good lord, I want that Mythical Creatures costume pack but I already decided to go digital. Hopefully it will be available to buy as an add-on later.

  • @5 — Sorry but I really don’t think this is cross-buy for PS4/PS3. That’s really only for the $15-range PSN games.

  • How do we know which retailers have the plush? And we can get it starting today?

    • Lots of retailers have plushies! We love Sackboy plushies!
      So check out your favourite retailer to see if they’re offering one!

    • Here’s a quick list of retailers with the LBP3 Plushie Bundle: Amazon, BestBuy, GameStop, Target (w/ exclusive cap), and Walmart. But FYI – each of these retailers have a limited supply.

  • Retailer specific pre-order bonuses, thank goodness, I’d hate to be able to get everything just by ordering 1 copy. And thank goodness these are pre-order only, I’d hate to be able to get them if I walked into a store 3 days after it came out and picked up a copy, like some dirty, non-pre-order….er.

    Thanks, Sony, always thinking of the gamer.

    • Your welcome! We’re glad to offer our gamers a Bonus Sackboy Plush at no additional cost. You no like?!?!?

  • Those sackboys look like trash. How is it so hard to make an accurate or at least decent looking miniature cloth doll

  • I really hope LBP3 is a return to the LBP1 format. Honestly, the unskippable “dialog” sequences in LBP2, PSP, and Vita were extremely annoying, and really ruined the experience for me. Replaying levels became a chore, because I couldn’t skip through exposition sequences that I had already seen. Please fix that experience.

    I actually was not going to buy LBP3 because of those experiences in the previous games. But between the Plushy pre-order bonus, and having a new girlfriend who is actually open to playing games with me, you guys got me. Please don’t disappoint!

  • Read this post and pre-ordered it in less than a minute. You have to love Amazon’s quick checkout process. I’m very excited for this!

  • When will we be able to preorder the PS3 version on the playstation store?

  • This is actually pretty cool
    I’ll get the ps4 anyway…

    But what about the PSPlus August lineup ,????

  • Nice, I pick up the PS3 version after the release.

  • When are you going to learn that consumers HATE retailer specific bonuses? Awful way to promote your game.

  • Oh my god. Preordered! Any Collectors Ed?

  • I didn’t own a PS3, so this will be my first Little Big Planet game. I preordered it just now on Amazon because of the crazy amount of pre-order bonuses that seemed to come every paragraph in this article! I don’t want to risk missing out. Looking forward to it, thanks.

  • Omg, Target plush! Hahahaaa nice! :D

  • @redemptivefrog: I agree with the previous poster; I very much doubt it will be cross-buy. But great to see someone still using “swell”! :P

    I’m hoping this game will have most of the kinks ironed out of the online play at launch. LBP2 was a fantastic game. Bought it day 1. Loved it to death, and yet…the problems loading levels online — even a few patches later — marred the overall experience.

    I know it must be hard doing anything original in the 2D-platformer arena, but you guys always have something up your sleeve. I just wish you would leave just one great idea to be released as DLC later on, if it means the game will reach the testing phase a few weeks earlier. Besides, a great game that works great will sell itself through word-of-mouth.

  • I’m definitely buying this digitally. No plushie for me?

  • Gotta agree with T3DV0L70L1N4 yet again: The inability to skip cutscenes was ludicrous in 2011. It’s not any better now. Hope that’s fixed.

    But I forgot to say…yay PS3! Great to see support for the platform that started it all. I have a ton of unplayed PS3 games already, so I ordinarily would just wait till I get a PS4 years from now. But make it a must-buy and I won’t wait. :)

  • @11
    I doubt it will be, though I think maybe having an option to skip that after you play a level once couldn’t hurt. Given how the game is made, that might not be possible – I don’t see a problem with it though.

    I’m more concerned about the inclusion of unnecessary playable characters other than Sackboy when everything they do could have been added through powers.

  • Oh man, the Playstation Favorites pack makes this an easy choice. Pre-ordered at Amazon!

  • With the 4 the player costume pack coming to LBP3 does this mean that all of our LBP1 and LBP2 DLC will transfer over to LBP3 as well as our story mode collectibles from LBP1 and LBP2 ?

  • Nothing to pre-order digitally directly from Sony?

    It really is too bad that all that talk a couple years ago about how we shouldn’t resell the games and it hurts the industry was just developers crying and now when they have the chance to actually pull people into a digital age, they do nothing to convince me to.

    Oh well, rant over.. love the content you get with the pre-orders. Very cute stuff. Looks like a great game

    • I think you missed the last few paragraphs. THERE IS a pre-order offer for the PlayStation Store! And you can get access to them immediately for your LBP1/LBP2 gaming sessions.

    • Haha! I personally love the Instant Access T-Shirts!

      Being able to get instant new content for the existing games is such a great offer for long-time fans of the series! :)

  • Great, no matter what is said, this game is going to be held back on PS4 by the PS3. I’m still getting it but I’m surely not hyped about it anymore, just a big LBP fan

  • Ok, must have Plushie. Will pre-order today.

  • Will those bonuses come also with the PS3 version or only with the PS4 version? At retailers’ websites it seems the bonuses are only for the PS4 version.

  • I opened the Playstation Blog with excitement to see what PS+ games we get next month (I forgot it is the last Thursday of every month), but stumbled upon this exciting news. Thanks Playstation.

    • It may not be Thursday yet but I’m happy to hear that Sackboy brightened up your Tuesday for you!

  • so excited pre-ordered after E3 and lots of goodies to come with it.

    • We always like to give our community a nice bumper-set of costumes to get them started in the next step of their LittleBigPlanet journey!

      Even better is the fact that these will be your first ever costumes for OddSock, Toggle and Swoop! :)

  • LBP1/2/Vita had three layers to work with. I know they added more for LBP3, but what is the final number on how many total layers are available?

    • There will be 16 playable layers in LittleBigPlanet 3!

      What do you plan to do with all those extra layers? ;)

  • I am very glad that one of the most anticipated games of the year will also be available for the PS3. It shows that you also care about the system where is all started (and the system that still has more people in it). I cannot wait to purchase this and I wish you good luck for LBP3!

    • We couldn’t possibly forget about the PlayStation 3! Our current LittleBigPlanet community is right there and we would never dream of leaving behind the community members that don’t own a PS4 yet!

  • Retailer exclusive pre-order bonuses are only a selling point to the retailers themselves, not customers.

  • I own both PS3 and PS4, will DLC from LBP 1 and 2 be compatible with PS3 version?

    And if so, does that mean the PS4 version technically has “less”?

  • Is a “participating retailer” for those awesome sackboy plushes? I have had it ordered since E3 so I am hoping to get one!

  • @36
    Yes, they do have the plush toys.
    (Playstation, is there a better way to reply to a comment?)

  • Are the plushies given out at time of preorder or at launch?

  • @36: Yeah, follow the link and you’ll see. All the retailers here (except the digital preorder) offer the plush Sackboy.

    So does this mean there isn’t going to be a collectors edition this time around? If there was, I’d have a hard time not buying it and finding a place for it between my LBP2 CE bookends(gameends?). But if not, I’m totally ready to preorder. Nice to have another Sackboy doll to join my first.

    Love LBP, can’t wait to get my hands on the PS4 version.

  • You should bundle the PS3 version with the ps4 version or maybe give a digital download voucher for one or at least some sort of discount.

  • As much as I hate the idea of retailer specific in-game pre-order bonuses, the fact that these are purely cosmetic makes it ok. And the plush looks fantastic

  • I think the digital pre-order bonus is too poor, I mean those T-shirts are pretty but compared to the other costumes they are not that good =/

  • Just preordered it for PS4 on Amazon.

  • Is there going to be a Collector’s Edition, Steven? You don’t have to say what’s in it, I just want to know. :p

  • My only gripe is it comes out the same day as Dragon Age: Inquisition, but that’s OK. It’ll just be tough to decide what to crack open first!

  • Toggle in Hidden Creature looks like chewbacca from Star Wars.

    • You realise that you’re now committed to recording an impression for everyone whilst wearing that costume in-game… Right? ;)

  • do we get the plushy when we pre order the game or when it releases

  • As long as Sony keeps backporting games like this and porting PS3 games unto the PS4 there’s very little reason to actually own a PS4.

  • Will there be a way to get the retailer-specific costume packs post-launch?

  • PLZ answer! Very important!

    For those who gets the PS4 version of LBP3 will all our DLC from LBP1 and LBP2 as well as our collectibles from story, side levels, etc. transfer over from PS3?
