Media Molecule has kept up their end of the bargain and released a bunch of downloadable content for their two-year old game, LittleBigPlanet. It was even announced that both the developers and Disney have teamed up to create Disney themed DLC for the game, but sadly we haven’t seen to much.
Today Media Molecule has an ‘incredible’ announcement. They have confirmed they’ll be releasing a huge DLC pack, which is inspired by Pixar’s ‘The Incredibles.’ The pack will include a total of nine costumes ($5.99), which includes the Incredibles family (Mr & Mrs Incredible, Dash, Violet and Jack-Jack.); their two allies Frozone and Edna; and their nemesis, Syndrome.
A level kit, sold separately ($4.99), will also be available on the same day, which includes recognizable landmarks from the film like: Enda’s home, Nomanisan Island and the home of the Incredibles. All the content can obviously be used to make your own incredible level, which then can be shared to the world, thanks to the online portion of LittleBigPlanet.
The pack will be released on April 8, 2010.
After the jump, check out a bunch of screens and some videos of what to expect when the content is finally available. (more…)
A few days ago, it was somewhat made official that LittleBigPlanet was going to have a Pirates of the Caribbean downloadable content pack. The news came from Disney, but we waited for the official word from Sony, and today the company confirmed it.
Owners of LittleBigPlanet will have the opportunity to dress up Sackboy as: “Sack Sparrow,” Will Turner, Elizabeth Swann, Barbossa, Davy Jones and Tia Dalma. Each costumes will cost $1.99 individually, or if you want all of them in a pack, it’ll set you back $5.99. If you decided to purchase the $5.99 pack, you will have the ability to include water into your user created levels — which is the biggest thing to impact the gameplay of the LittleBigPlanet world, since DLC was introduced. After the jump, check out everything that will be included in the $5.99 pack. If you own the game, you will agree it’s a must buy!
Watch the trailer above.
Quick question to all the ladies… who is hotter? Sackboy’s Sparrow or Depp as the famous pirate? If I was a chick, I would so rather Sack Sparrow.
Once again, Media Molecule is releasing a free costume for LittleBigPlanet because of some sort of celebration. This occasion has to do with LittleBigPlanet turning 1 years-old. According to the MM blog, this weeks PSN store update, people who have their PlayStation connected online — can download a special birthday cake costume (picture above). Not only that, in case you missed the kick-ass SackBoy astronaut uniform last year, you can log on to PSN this Thursday and finally get it.
Although, if you don’t get it rather quickly — much like everything else they released for free — won’t be available in the PSN store forever.
Here’s a quick note. If you had LittleBigPlanet around this time last year, you should surely remember the free downloadable pumpkin mask, which was to celebrate Halloween. After the ‘holiday’ ended, so did your chance to grab the jack-o head. Well, Media Molecule has announced that the ‘pumpkin-head,’ is coming back to PSN for a limited time. And again, if you miss out on it this year, you might have to wait one full calender to get it again. So just turn on your PlayStation 3 and download the damn mask already, it literally takes a second to do so.
Proving that Sony isn’t going to rely solely on the PSP Go from here on out, the company has announced brand new colors of the PSP-3000. The Japan-based company is bringing two colors, which seem like they are geared towards girls. The two shades are “Blossom Pink” and “Turquoise Green.”
Both models are shipping in November — a month after Sony releases the more expensive PSP Go unit. Customers can purchase the pink and green units as a stand alone package, however, the company said the green system will also have an option to buy a bundle which includes the PSP version of LittleBigPlanet.
For the last couple of days or so, Media Molecule was teasing its fans about something big for LittleBigPlanet, which was promised to be announced during Sony’s press conference at Gamescom. What was this huge reveal? Water.
When the new downloadable content is available in the “near future,” it is promised to change user created levels forever. Obviously, by adding this one element to the game, it should completely change the great physics engine, already included with LBP. Not only will SackBoy be able to swim, but I’m assuming certain items will be able to float or sink, depending on what the player chooses.
Like every new big downloadable content released for LittleBigPlanet, Media Molecule has once again released a clever/funny video demoing exactly on what we should expect.
When Sony was first showing off LittleBigPlanet for the PlayStation 3 a few years ago, they used a very distinguish song called “Get It Together,” by The Go! Team. To this day, when I hear the song I instinctively think of LittleBigPlanet and I’m sure I am not the only one who does.
Microsoft has decided to use the exact same song for one of their Xbox 360 promo ads, probably because it’s quite catchy. This doesn’t mean Microsoft stole the song from Sony because the PS3 maker never recorded it. However, I doubt its hardy a coincidence at the same time, but its all fair game as long as The Go Team! gave them permission.
In the end, it really doesn’t matter who really uses “Get It Together” because the only winner is The Go! Team. Maybe Nintendo will use the pop group’s better song “Milk Crisis.”
For me anyway, when I think of LittleBigPlanet‘s user created material, the first thing that pops in my mind are the fantastic levels gamers have made. I generally forget about what people do to the SackBoys and girls, and it’s always refreshing to see what players can do to those lovable characters.
Peteypiranha128 on youtube has created a video of his collection of SackPeople dressed up as some of the most famous videogame stars known. From classic characters like Mario and Sonic to the zombies in Left 4 Dead, Petey did a great job of trying to cover every era, and I can only imagine how long these took.
When LittleBigPlanet for the PSP was first announced earlier in the year, I thought, along with everyone else, the game would communicate with the PlayStation 3′s version. Guess what? We were all correct. Players who own the PS3 version of LBP and also decide to buy the PSP game, will get exclusive access to a feature called “cross-talk.”
Sony has yet to give any details to what exactly this means, but I’m guessing we’ll see some extra costumes and other tools to create even more in depth levels, with the editor. That’s what I figure at least, but does this extra content mean it will be only for the PSP, PS3 or both? I don’t know, but here is hoping to both.
Sony has also confirmed that a demo for the PSP LittleBigPlanet will be making its way to the PlayStation Network. However, when exactly that will happen has yet to be revealed. Most likely it going to be closer to the actual release date for the full game, which should happen closer to the release of the PSP Go.
Along with the Ghostbusters costumes that will be released for LittleBigPlanet, Media Molecule will also come out with a sticker pack for the videogame. As you can tell, some of the stickers will have a cool cartoon feel, which ‘kinda’ remind of the Ghostbusters’ 80s television show. The other portion of the stickers include a weird, but somewhat photo realistic version of the movie. Although, why does the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man on the right look like he’s on drugs, and paranoid from them?
Below is a new picture of the costumes. The Ghostbusters pack is scheduled to come out on July 16, 2009.
Media Molecule has just confirmed that they officially going to be releasing Ghostbusters pack for LittleBigPlanet, which they teased last week. Up top is what the studio revealed on their website today and as you can tell, it will allow LBP owners to dress up SackBoy as a Ghostbuster. But guess what? That’s not all. Thanks to Sony in Japan, they have revealed even more on their website.
The picture in the middle shows off SackBoys cosplaying as Slimer, Stay Puft (Sack Puff) Marshmallow Man and oddly enough; the Ghostbusters’ iconic symbol.
As cool as it looks, I’m a tad disappointed. I was really hoping for the ability to use the Proton Pack and shoot the beams, much like the Metal Gear pack, which award players to shoot a paintball gun. I also wouldn’t have mind the company including the ‘Ghostbusters theme’ song for the download. Although, that did seem somewhat unlikely.
Either way, consider me sold. LittleBigPlanet is easily one of my favorite games to come out this generation and Ghostbusters is one of my favorite films, the combination is almost perfect.
Media Molecule has been no slouch when it comes to creating new downloadable content for their hit game, LittleBigPlanet. We’ve seen countless packages of original content and on occasion seen licensed products make its way to the videogame. While most of it has been cool, especially the Metal Gear pack — I would like to see more well known DLC themes.
Today, the talented studio is teasing their fans of a possible Ghostbusters pack. If you head to their official website, you’ll notice a picture with a black background and white font that reads “Who ya gonna call?” Obviously, that is from the Ghostbusters’ theme song, which was song by Ray Parker Jr. If this tease is in fact a Ghostbusters theme, imagine the possibilities.
Not only could we dress up SackBoy in the well known tan uniform; with the logo and all, but they could actually add the proton pack to the DLC. Remember, when the Metal Gear LBP download was released, Media Molecule added the paintball gun. Because of that, it would be feasible to think we could see the Ghostbusters‘ weapon of choice included to the DLC. Heck, they could even add the Ray Parker Jr. Ghostbusters theme song — now that would kick ass.
Of course, this is nothing but pure speculation on my part, hell they might not even release anything that has to do with the Ghostbusters. Although, this tease makes it seem like it will happen, and the company is going to reveal soon.
Whatever it is, there is no question it will be some kind of downloadable content. If you head over to the company’s flickr page, you will see the same image above, but with a few logo’s — however, none of them indicate Ghostbusters. But where the ‘tags’ are on the page, the only one listed reads; ‘dlc‘.
If you don’t own a PlayStation 3, but you are on the fence about actually purchasing one, you might want to head down to your local Best Buy right now because they are offering a terrific bundle as we speak.
Right now, the big box retail store is selling an 80GB PlayStation 3, along with WALL-E on Blu-ray; which could be the one of the best Pixar films, and included is maybe the best PS3 game LittleBigPlanet.
Now get this, the price of the bundle is the same as just a system alone — which runs at $399. That is a steal, folks. Basically, if you snag one of these bundles you would be saving about $90, give or take a few bucks.
This is such a good deal that owners of the system should already have in their possession these two things anyway; so you might want to give in to your impulse and buy this package.
WALL-E and LittleBigPlanet are currently receiving a 93 and 95 respectively, on metacritic.
Even though Media Molecule is a British Based company, that doesn’t mean the studio won’t be celebrating the United States’ Independence Day. According to the official website, the company is going to release a “limited-time costume” for LittleBigPlanet on July 2, which is going to disguise SackGirl like the world famous Statue of Liberty. The best part? It’s free to all owners of LittleBigPlanet.
Again, the free downloadable content is only good for a limited-time, so make sure you turn on your PlayStation 3; boot-up LittleBigPlanet and download the costume on July 2. As of now, MM is not telling us a specific date when plan on pulling the content — or when they plan on charging users.
LittleBigPlanet developer Media Molecule has just posted a job listing on Edge‘s classified section. Although what game they are currently working on is not known, they did mention it will be “a ground-breaking, AAA, PS3 title for Sony Computer Entertainment”
Considering the United Kingdom based studio is fairly small, it wouldn’t be a surprise that this could be a listing for a sequel to LittleBigPlanet. Some other information from the job posting suggest that it could be just that. The candidate they are looking for must have “experience writing and maintaining physics code” and even had past work where the game included “an online component.”
If you don’t know, those two quotes are two of the biggest features in the first LittleBigPlanet. That sounds to me like they are creating another SackBoy game and I can’t wait!
