Sack It To Me: Arrr! The Pirates Are Here!

17 4

This week will see the release of The Pirates! Minipack on the PlayStation Store, containing a variety of costumes from The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists.


The Pirate Captain, Cutlass Liz and Black Bellamy will all be coming to LittleBigPlanet 2 and LittleBigPlanet PS Vita this week. Not forgetting that they will also be taking to the track too, when LittleBigPlanet Karting releases next month!

Best of all, you only have to purchase The Pirates! Minipack once and you’ll have access to these great costumes across all three games!

LBPC9: Locomotion Commotion – Rare Prize Crown Contest

The LBPC Contest Crew is back with a brand new Rare Prize Crown contest: LBPC9 – Locomotion Commotion! To enter you need to build a motion oriented level for your sackperson to navigate; a level where all the obstacles are powered by kinetic energy; where starting from a single power source, the obstacles are set in motion and that motion is passed on in an ever-evolving chain reaction!

LBPC9 Locomotion Commotion Contest

It’s a chance for you to amaze with feats of engineering; make people gasp at your Rube Goldberg-esque inventions, well-oiled clockwork or magnificent steampunk contraptions.
Sounds like just the right kind of challenge for our creatively minded community!

The contest is for LittleBigPlanet 2 levels only and the winner will be awarded a Rare Prize Crown and the LittleBigPlanet Central Pin! For more details and the full rules of the contest, hop on over to

LittleBigPlanet 2: Mm Picks

  • Cool, Pirate Captain would look cool on a pirate cart in LPB Karting! :D

  • Just got LBP vita from the post :D.

  • This has got to be the best portable conversion of a series made by a different studio than the original one. And it’s such a perfect fit for the Vita with its pick up and play style. Love how purchased costumes are transferred to the next games, that way it’s not a limited time purchase and I can still use my LBP1 costumes eventhough I don’t play that game a lot anymore.
    Are all the purchased costumes going to be available for the vita version eventually? I’ve already got plenty to keep me going for now but it would be great. I’ve already seen someone with the old Assassins creed outfit, I can’t redownload that one in the vita version (yet?). Anyway keep up the good work guys, still enjoying this and can’t wait for Tearaway either!
    Oh and a couple of costume suggestions maybe? Some Resi evil 5,6 ones, like Chris, Sheva and Leon; GTA, RDR, Max Payne : Niko, Marston and Max Payne; Devil may cry’s old Dante; FF13’s Lightning; Mass effect’s Shepard, Garrus,..; Deus ex’s Jensen and some Battlefield 3 outfits :p With all the awesome ones available already that would make my list complete, I think :p

  • I love a bit of pirate action!!!

  • Seems to be a problem with the Tic tac toe level and Little big collector. They sound like cool levels.

  • Still no news about an offline ad-hoc multimlayer mode ?

  • Still no news about an offline ad-hoc multiplayer mode ?

  • Hi Steven,

    I have a very serious on-going issue with LBP Vita which restricts the use of my popit while in the pod. I have completed half of the story levels, however, my popit is not accessible while I am in my pod – meaning I cannot decorate it or change costume from it.

    I have replayed all the Flounder levels to try and get the ability to unlock – but to no avail. Could you look into this for me?


  • Bit off topic – I just got the LBP2 Platinum!!! :P :P :P HAPPY-SACK-BOY-I-AM;)

  • Hello – I got the Pirates pack from the voucher in the bluray of the movie, I can use these in LBP2 but not LBP Vita – will they be available for LBPV when this pack goes live? Or do I have to buy them for the vita versions?

  • i dont have lbp2 sorry i have lbp1 :(
