  • Looking forward to being an elf.

    Any idea when we’ll be able to play the Cross-Controller Pack on PS4? It’s downloaded, but there’s no option to play it.

  • I am a huge fan of LBP since the first one. Wen i was gonna buy the game, like, 80% of my friends told me to stay away from the game because of the many broken things in it. DLC costumes missing, game breaking glitchs and bugs, unplayable online and mostly all old game levels breaking with the new logic.

    My question, is this game fixed and clean? Honest answers please. I really want to play it.

    • It’s playable now without risk of breaking. The only issues left are DLC availability and compatibility.

    • If you’re on PS4, you really should wait. The upcoming update should fix most of the bugs, but we don’t know if it is the case.
      If you’re on PS3, like I do, it’s not a lot glitchier than LBP2, so you might buy it anytime.

    • I’m on PS4. It’s totally fine and there’s no game breaking bugs. Hasn’t been for weeks.

    • No. Some people are still getting corrupted profiles and the missing and broken DLC issue is an absolute disgrace. The MGS pack is still badly broken making it impossible to collect all the prizes and lots and lots of other packs are still missing altogether.

    • Most of the crashes are now fixed and most of the existing DLC is now here. Sumo Digital is aware of everything.

    • I am a HUGE LBP fan as well. Bought every game day one, also every level DLC packs. I love creating stuff in LBP.

      Unfortunately I also bought LBP3, believing it would share the same quality as the previous games. SInce day one, we have had glitches, no DLC compatibility and the worst offender IMO, no progress from LBP 1 and 2 DLC on PS4.
      I have to replay ALL the level packs and ace/collect every level. That is just plain maddening.

      I’ve reached out to the helpline, and they just tell me to play the DLC again. Like I want to waste my time doing that, when I could have fun doing something else.
      So now the game is just downloaded on my PS4 and not being played anymore… Such a shame.

      The worst thing is that It does not have all the DLC on PS4. We have to wait over 4 months to get our DLC we bought previously.

      The whole game is just an incomplete and rushed product.

      If you ask me, wait until they fix everything, before you dive in.

    • Those incidents must be few then. I played the MGS pack without issue.

    • #TheDon81

      Gosh, im really sorry for you. I am also a huge LBP fan buying everything day one. But everyone said to back away from LBP3 because of that. That DLC thing, progression and data corrupt sounds really bad.

      Maybe its best to wait a little more.

    • Game Update 1.05 is due for release this week and we believe it will resolve the highest priority issues that some players have been encountering such as the save profile corruptions, online multiplayer connection issues and a number of crash incidents.

      We are just locking down the release date and time for that now, so we should have a confirmation of its release time and a full set of patch notes soon.

      In regards to your missing DLC, we have been working with the PlayStation Store teams across all regions to investigate this issues and we believe that we have now identified the problem.

      We are continuing to work with the PlayStation Store teams to make this content available to you again asap and you should see your content re-appear at no extra cost to yourself during upcoming PlayStation Store updates.

  • After all these months i was thinking that a LBP 3 theme is coming to SHAREFactory, but now is real, now that Steven wrote this blog post! :D

    • Haha! Glad you like it!

      We are obviously big fans of SHARE on the LittleBigPlanet team, so we figured that this free theme pack would bring a big smile to a few faces!

  • I finally finished Guacamelee Super Turbo Championship Edition. And with finished I mean collecting that Platinum Trophy. Now that’s out of the way I can finally focus on playing LittleBigPlanet 3 to the max. Can’t wait to collect all those prize bubbles and creating my own levels.

  • Hey Steven, How about fixing all the missing and broken DLC in LBP3 on PS4. I already bought all this DLC but I’m guessing it will probably ask me to pay again like all the rest??

    • We are working on this issue and you should now see your content re-appear during upcoming PlayStation Store updates.

      Please do not repurchase the content since when this issue has been resolved, you will be able to re-download this content again without requiring an additional purchase.

    • It’s not his Steven’s or Sumo Digital’s fault. It’s the PS Store’s fault.

  • Is there anything in the works to provide better search functions for community levels? I’m just starting to look at Create Mode, for which these videos will be a great help, but it’s a bit difficult to see good, new levels people are making once the Team Picks section has been exhausted. The New feed is a lottery and the rest of the sections are dominated by LBP1 & 2 levels. I would love to see a rising/hot/etc. section to keep a steady stream going of great LBP3 levels in one sitting, without having to trawl through various forums beforehand and this should give some great inspiration for what can be achieved.

  • The Mythical Creature pack looks fun, if just for the phoenix and gryphon skins.

    Though I am still waiting for a problem with two items of DLC I brought to be resolved, it’s been well over a month and I’ve still got nothing.

  • We can now confirm that Game Update 1.05 will be going live in a few hours.

    You can read the full release details and patch notes over on the official community forums:

  • How are you guys going to tackle your savegame size? LBP3 saves are 500MB+, which means nobody has room for them on PS+. Kick somebody at Sony, so we get unlimited PS+ cloud storage, like on Xbox One.

    This is holding me back from buying LBP3.

  • The extra characters (Oddsock etc) bring some variety but also a load of new marketing schemes. I bought a lot of costumes for my sackboy but I won’t be bothered spending a lot on the sidecharacter dressing.. Consider still making packs with just Sackboy clothing and not 1 outfit for Sackboy and others for sidecharacters like the MGSV pack.

  • when will the order dlc come out? im excited for it!

  • Wow the costumes are cool like i love this minotaure hair its great fitting for my toggle and thes oddsock wings its awesome and this firy swoop fires are shiny :D

    • But the problem is that i cant play my ps4 lbp3 cuz of school till 5 months and i cant get some free holiday costumes even costumes that needs money cuz im in tripoli theres no ps cards :(

  • It’s February 18 here in America, and I can’t download the Chinese New Year free costume pack! It won’t let me download it at all, is it a European exclusive? Is there a certain time zone?

  • Will you be bring slurpee in lbp3 again

  • The slurpee t shirt if you are in lbp3 that will be good thanks
