  • Great to see that LBP2 Content packs are finally coming to Vita.

    Any chance we can get costume sticker packs onto Vita as well, such as Sonic the Hedgehog?

    • We’re looking into bringing more content to LittleBigPlanet PS Vita generally, including brand new asset releases that include stickers and decorations.

      So you should hopefully see your LittleBigPlanet PS Vita popits filling up with goodies this year. :)

  • Steven please don’t ignore this.

    I have been spammed today with 400 comments saying HACKER TROLL and I spent 10 minutes of my time deleting every one of them, and I also had to turn my comments off. :(

    PLEASE tell me, will the block function be available this week as I really need it now.

    • I wouldn’t ignore this but I’ve already told you that we’re currently working on it and will be making a more official announcement soon. :)

      Trust me, when we’re ready to release this new functionality, you will be sure to hear it from us!

      In the meantime, just make sure to grief report the constant spammed messages in your profile and the moderation team will be able to deal with them for you.

  • very good suport of the game.

    also i see the blog = very sleepy first blog artikel on monday :)

    • First blog post of the week and we’re showcasing the most beautiful sunsets in our community levels!

      Oh, the irony! :)

  • Well, more old content coming to Vita is always good :D

    Also, let me queue that community level. I must say that having a 3D editor all of a sudden feels so… weird :P

    Are the few costumes missing from the older packs coming BTW? Noticed Ezio wasn’t there to race!

    @monoliet: Well, after the madness that E3 must be I bet you they’re enjoying the slow-paced day :P

    • All of the our LittleBigPlanet DLC Costumes should be available in LittleBigPlanet Karting, except for the Assassin’s Creed Costumes.


    i tink sony gone have very hard time to folow comands.
    lots of place u are abel to preorder
    but also some u stil can not = them need info from sony .

  • Your comment is awaiting moderation lol

    hahaha second http = best !!!!

  • Great update thank you.
    Any news on PS+ update for July :D?

  • Oh yes! More content packs for Vita. I love this game.

    Any chance of seeing Karting on the Vita some day? I really hope so.


    I would just like to begin by thanking both yourself and the team for the fantastic support you’ve shown towards these family-friendly games.

    Now, I come with a request, on my old PSN account I actually participated in the LBP2 Beta and received a unique “Beta Tester Vest” for my actions; however, times have changed and now I’m using a different account that doesn’t have this special item. I’ve recently been loving LittlePlanet Vita an because the Vita is locked to one account I’m unable to access this vest. Would you be able to please send me another code for the vest so I can access it on my currently used account? I would hugely appreciate it. If required, I can prove my ownership of both accounts in question so that I can use the vest on my newest account.


    This won’t happen. Only one beta vest code per person and beta test regardless of how many accounts you have.

    I did have 2 spare codes from LBPK and LBPV, but unfortunatly they expired in December last year.

    Your only option would be to switch your Vita account to the one which contains it, but is it really worth it just for a vest? They’re not that rare now.

  • can you use your game save from the disc version for the digital version?

  • @11 yes u can

  • Thanks for LBP Karting on Plus. Have really enjoyed it so far. Though some of my LBP DLC doesn’t yet work on it if I’m right? I couldn’t see Karting versions of Garfield and Odie and some older ones?

  • @Carnivius_Prime

    Not all costumes are compatible with LBPK yet. Compatability is still being worked on, especially those that are licensed.

  • Hey, what news on the July PSN Plus content update?

  • People keep looking for the Killer App for the PS Vita, when it’s right in front of them this whole time. LBP Vita is short of a masterpiece for a game on a handheld.

  • hello steven
    Are their any plans for a dr who kit (costumes and/or stickers). as it is doctor the 50th aniversary this year

  • When will be get more information on new PS+ games? Love the service, signed up for the first time two weeks ago!

  • @MaxDieHard Cheers for the info :)

    And I agree with Ash_uk1, I’d love some Doctor Who costumes. For example one of the new Cybermen in Sackboy style would be adorable.

  • Well, booted up the family’s PS+ account and I have to say; I’m not impressed.

    I was in the beta so I don’t know what I was expecting, but I was expecting a little better functionality and for the design to be a little better. Every time I raced I wanted to get all of the prize bubbles, but there were so many (a lot of them being re-pasted from LBP and LBP2) and If I wanted to get them all I’d need to be doing the race on my own, not with a dozen AIs behind and in front of me.

    And that’s just another, I shouldn’t have to rely on keeping a weapon to be able to block attacks. Where’s the sheild gone? Everything else was lifted straight from ModNation BUT the sheild? I’m pretty sure they could have come up with a reason to add it in. It would seem simple given the horrible story.

    I dunno, really not a fan of this one…

  • Why are people here asking about the next plus update?
    That has nothing to do with this post so you should keep it on topic as Fred and the guys don’t really reply to off topic posts other than to say ” keep on topic”.

    Back to lbp.

    I like lbp karting but have to say i did like modnation more, is that franchise dead now or could we see a hybrid of modnation design along with lbp in any future titles.

    Ad is there anyway i can make my popit show only the content i own, its very annoying to select something only to be told i need to buy it to use it.

  • @31: People will always prefer the most recent blog post to going back x posts, which may very well result in that post never getting any answer at all. It’s just human nature.

    As for this post: I now have ALL LBP games, including the Racer, which I was glad to get as PS Plus free game.

    I will definitely check out the new karting levels, they look fun!

  • Now that I’ve finished university for the summer, I’m looking forward to spending a bit of time on LBP again. And with the addition of Karting to my collection, I’m looking forward to spending many hours trying to create something truly unique!

  • OH MY WORD, that sunset level was about the most gorgeous thing I’ve ever seen on LBP. Major applause to TheNotorious-187 for creating that. Absolutly Brilliant.

  • My Bioshock Infinite Character Pack isn’t showing up in-game.

  • “That’s right! You heard me correctly; the Summer Creator Kit is coming to LittleBigPlanet PS Vita this week too!”

    Can’t find the content with todays EU PSN update. When is it up for download?

  • The summer creator kit is not available on the EU PSN store now. Does it will be out later ?
