Quote of the Moment!
las, the wait is over LittleBigPlanet 3 is finally here! Well, it's sort of been here already just being polished up and perfected for you all. As A beta tester for LittleBigPlanet 3, I can confidently say that this is truly a next generation LittleBigPlanet game. Check it.
LittleBigPlanet 3 is currently only available for North America on both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 and is expected to release later this month on November 28th for Eastern Europe. For those of you who have digitally downloaded and then pre-loaded LittleBigPlanet 3 on either the PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 system, I'm sure you've experienced as much suspense as I have with the gaming being on your system already but not being able to play it due to the start timer. Truly torture, I must admit.
But don't worry about it, it's all over now and I'm sure we'll all forget about it. Eventually. For now, let's starting getting busy. And by busy, I mean by playing, creating and sharing. A new generation of LittleBigPlanet has just begun and it's time to put your creativity skills to the test. Thank you all for your patience and be sure to have fun!
our artists transform an enormous warehouse in South London into something truly magical. LittleBigPlanet 3 is all about boundless creativity and these folks believe in just that. The Outside Collective were challenged to use their imagination to transform this warehouse.
Ahead of LittleBigPlanet 3's launch in just a few weeks for both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, the lovely folks at LittleBigPlanet Towers thought it was time that they got in on the act. So, they challenged a group of highly-skilled graffiti artists to transform a South London warehouse into a beautiful world of imagination featuring Sackboy, OddSock, Toggle and Swoop.
"We can’t wait for the game to be released on 26th November (28th November in UK and Ireland) and can’t wait to see the creations that you, the community, have in store for us. We love seeing your imagination in action, whether that’s in-game, online, or in person. We’re looking forward to seeing what you come up with next!"
To make this video, it took: 4 artists, 4 film crew, a 4,000sq ft/ 371sq m double height warehouse, 2,000 spray paint nozzles, 670 tins of spray paint, 324 hours, 4,012 hand-painted frames... and 750 tea bags. Now that's what I call a sweet paint job!
he interesting image was provided by LittleBigPlanet's fellow community member R-V-2-0-1-3. If you haven't been in the know lately, the European Space Agency just landed their space probe, dubbed Rosetta on comet Churyumov–Gerasimenko or 67P. Let's just call it 67P...
Let's skip the sciencey bits for now and give our artist here a bit of a spotlight. R-V-2-0-1-3 is a mechanic, engineer and graphic designer for LittleBigPlanet who has a knack for creating platformers and making extremely believable Photoshoped images pertaining to LittleBigPlanet. He's one of the few LittleBigPlanet creators out there that comes up with original concepts that will truly make you say "Holy cow that's cool!".
Jumping back to the sciencey stuff, here's a bit of an overview of the hype that surrounds the Rosetta Comet. Rosetta was space probe that was launched on March 2nd in 2004 on a rocket called Ariane 5. It reached the comet 67P on August 6th, 2014, becoming the first spacecraft to orbit a comet. Previous missions had conducted very successful fly-bys of seven other comets. The spacecraft used to land on 67P consists of two main elements: The Rosetta space probe orbiter and the Philaerobotic lander. Both of which were required and used in conjunction to ensure that the mission would be a complete success.
The Rosetta mission will orbit 67P for 17 months and is designed to complete the most detailed study of a comet ever attempted. The mission is controlled from the European Space Operations Centre in Darmstadt, Germany.
hile everyone was crafting the same big game, the lovely folks at LittleBigPlanet Towers deiced to craft something uniquely small. Of course, we all know that this 'small' thing is non other than LittleBigPlanet 3. A game sure to brighten your day and boost your creativity.
LittleBigPlanet 3 is set to release in North America next week on November 18th and November 25th, for Eastern Europe. I hope you have your pre-orders in, time is running out and you just might miss out on the fantastic goodies that come with the bundles. But of course that's up to you, just a putting that out there. Either way, I'm sure you'll enjoy and have the same great experience as everyone else when you sit down and play LittleBigPlanet 3 whether it's by yourself, with friends or family.
For LittleBigPlanet, small isn't just about size, it’s about an appreciation for the little details and playful nuances that make gaming that much more spectacular. But most important, LittleBigPlanet gives gamers something they never had before: the freedom to make any LittleBigPlanet into kind of game imaginable.
Now supported by a community of creators millions strong, LittleBigPlanet 3 will proudly Stand Small and promote the values that have made the franchise a favorite over the past 6 years.
emember, the fifth of November. Yep, it’s bonfire night. It’s also LittleBigPlanet’s birthday! Before we crack open another cold one (that’s a can of some obscurely-labeled fizzy drink, by the way…) we’d like to address a few things. First of all, what the heck? LittleBigPlanet has officially been around for over a third of the average LittleBigPlanet player’s life.
Secondly, what do you get a video game franchise for its sixth birthday? Material wealth seems a bit pointless for something with no appendages or ability to recognise and perceive pleasure. So, instead, we’re commemorating its manifestation in gaming history. Here’s to you, you brilliant set of vectors.
We can’t really offer anything for you guys, so instead we’re just going to send a few shout-outs to the important people behind LittleBigPlanet before the day’s end. Yes, if Breezy were a half-decent writer and a proactive thinker, the post would’ve been up at midnight. Instead, we’re aiming for a 5pm job, no bells nor whistles, no dinner nor show, no shirt, no shoes, and certainly no service. This is our early morning bird-whistle to the waking ears of the narcoleptic LittleBigPlanet body. In fact, we’re not certain what a sixth birthday entails. My sixth birthday was an awful lot of shoving comestibles into my face-hole and projecting them back into a lavatory about five minutes later. Not much can be said about LittleBigPlanet right now, but if it were personified at all, it’d be a rowdy creative and cute child with a valuable future ahead of them.
So, a humble thanks to Steven Isbell andSarah Wellock for being the glitter-glue of the community; sparkly, shiny, and adhesive. Another thanks to all our LittleBigPlanet Community friends for supporting each and every aspect of LittleBigPlanet without questioning its values, sort of like when your dumb friend says “I’m gonna eat these Mentos and drink this Coke, I swear it’s gonna be great.” Yet another thanks from our surplus of appreciation is directed to the community folk for making awesome levels and doing awesome extravirtual feats, henceforth augmenting the LittleBigPlanet experience as a whole. You’re all awesome people. Also, we would like to thank everyone else. Why? I don’t bloody know. It’s the 2010’s, anything goes.
Maybe you could celebrate the event by pre-orderingLittleBigPlanet 3 (if you haven’t already), or downloading Run Sackboy! Run! from the iOS App Store (or other stores where you can find this ridiculously addictive game). Peace, love, and other questionable physical gestures... your pals, the LittleBigJourney team.
LittleBigPlanet Daily - LittleBigPlanet 3 Receives Best Social, Casual, Online and Best Family Game Awards
arlier this year, LittleBigPlanet was featured at this year's Gamescom. The lucky few among us managed to sneak in a good clump of their leisure time into the ever-bearing hands of Twitch, where the venerated Sarah Wellock and David Dino gave us an augmented hands-on experience of the cascading features being tossed at us repeatedly.
But, at the end of the day it came down to you. Yes, you. You might be one person, but it takes a whole bunch of you to come together and create an amazing fan base. With that being said, the fans and on-lookers at Gamescom were able to nominate LittleBigPlanet for plethora of different awards. LittleBigPlanet was nominated for and then won the best social game, best casual game, best online game and last but not least, the absolute best family game. Simply outstanding.
As dreadful the wait must've been, the Gamescom awards just arrived today at LittleBigPlanet Towers. Just look at their faces, they look pretty stoked if you ask me. Just remember, if it wasn't for all you fellow creators and curators out there, none of these would've been possible to achieve. You boys and girls are truly what drives the community and keeps the series pushing forward. Keep on excelling, and thank you!
ittleBigPlanet 3 is on the horizon and it's that time of the year that the LittleBigPlanet community should start considering how they should be handling the transferring of their creations from LittleBigPlanet 2 to LittleBigPlanet 3.
As you probably know, all of the costumes, stickers, decorations and objects you've collected in LittleBigPlanet and LittleBigPlanet 2 will be available to you in LittleBigPlanet 3. Seriously, it's all backwards compatible. In a addition, you'll also have access to all your created levels and the downloadable content from both LittleBigPlanet and LittleBigPlanet 2 that you've purchased in the past.
However, things will be a bit more trickier, depending on the platform you're purchasing LittleBigPlanet 3 for. All of this information was covered in an official PlayStation blog post earlier today by LittleBigPlanet's community coordinator Steven Isbell. All this jazz may seem a bit complicated, but fear not. I'll try our best to help you out.
Progression and Collected Items
If you’ve played through the original LittleBigPlanet and collected each and every sticker, decoration, costume, object or material, you'll have nothing to worry about. Each one of those items will similarly cross-over to LittleBigPlanet 3 similar to how they were handed to you in LittleBigPlanet 2.
However, if you're purchasing your copy of LittleBigPlanet 3 for PlayStation 3 and you still own the same exact save game you've been using to collect those same goodies, you will promptly be asked if you want to import your profile on the start of the game. If you later decide that you want to import your profile or it's collected goodies, this can be done from the in-game start menu. Under 'Profile', you can select 'Import Profile', which will import your entire profile and replace the current. Or you can use the 'Import Collected Objects' button. This won't import your entire profile, just your collected items you've earned in LittleBigPlanet and LittleBigPlanet 2. This can only be done if those save games still exist on the console already.
If you end up purchasing LittleBigPlanet 3 for the PlayStation 4 system or a different PlayStation 3 system, collected items will only be unlocked based on how far you've gotten through LittleBigPlanet 2's Story Mode. As long as you're using the same valid PlayStation Network account, the game will auto-magically unlock your items based on what pins you've collected in-game. See where this is going? No? Well, let me break it down for you. If you got the pin where you've collected all the goodies in Eve's Asylum or Aced all of The Factory of a Better Tomorrow's levels, LittleBigPlanet 3 will read this from the LBP.me cloud servers and award you your collectables based off of that alone. Isn't it magical?
If you play LittleBigPlanet 3 on PlayStation 3 system, the game will read from the two file bundles in the Game Data Utility folder on your system. These files are the LittleBigPlanet Downloadable Content and the LittleBigPlanet 2 Downloadable Content files. This is very straight-forward. All of your purchased costumes and level kits will be available instantaneously without any input from you. With that being said, you'll also have access to the items you’ve unlocked from your downloaded level kits and you’ll even be able to play the very levels included in those level kits without booting up either LittleBigPlanet game.
On a PlayStation 4 system, some user input is required. You'll be able to re-download all your downloadable content to your system for free through the PlayStation Store. As long as the content is registered on your valid PlayStation Network, it should be no problem. However, please note that your progress in downloadable content levels won't transfer over. You'll have to play the levels all over again to unlock it's prizes and goodies.
User Created Levels
Any levels you’ve already published to your Earth will continue to be available for you and the community to play in LittleBigPlanet 2 and LittleBigPlanet 3 on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. If you have any levels on your Earth that you wish to save on your Moon, you can copy them straight from your earth and they're yours to keep. Keep in mind that this only works with your levels! Keep in mind that if you're playing on a PlayStation 3 system, all the levels on your Moon will be available when you import your save game into LittleBigPlanet 3.
If you’re on PlayStation 4 or a different PlayStation 3 system that you haven't played LittleBigPlanet 2 with, you’ll start LittleBigPlanet 3 with a brand new moon. Your unpublished levels will also not be imported. If you want to transfer them, you will need to publish them to your earth in LittleBigPlanet 2 and then download them to your Moon through LittleBigPlanet 3. You can keep the levels locked or you can sub them if you don’t want anyone else playing them in the meantime.
Custom Objects and Stickers
On a PlayStation 3 system, all of the objects you've captured or stickers you've created will auto-magically appear in your Popit when you import your save game into LittleBigPlanet 3.
To transfer your objects and stickers to a PlayStation 4 system or a different PlayStation 3 system, you will need to save the items in Prize Bubbles in LittleBigPlanet 2, put them into an empty level and publish the level to your Earth. From there, you boot up LittleBigPlanet 3 on your PlayStation system and copy the levels from your Earth to your moon.
For any further questions pertaining to transferring your user generated content from one game or platform to another, please be sure to visit the FAQs section of the official LittleBigPlanet website which will be avaible in the coming weeks or tweet @StevenIsbell or @LittleBigPlanet. They'll be happy to assist you.
ith Halloween just around the corner, it's no reason why Sackboy and Sackgirl are dressing up in some rather cute yet scary costumes this Friday. I almost forgot to mention, shout out to the amazing @j_creative528 via Twitter for her lovely photo shown above. Aren't they simply just the cutest bunch of trick-or-treaters you've ever seen? I think so.
You too can dress up your Sackboy or Sackgirl this Friday with LittleBigPlanet's annual free Pumpkin Head Mask costume. What's that? Too classic? Fret not! You still have a whole boat load of costumes to dress up in, even if they aren't Halloween related. What's that? Too unoriginal? Okay Mr. or Ms. Originality. No one is stopping you from making your very own unique hand-crafted costume within the game. You have the stickers and you have the decorations, make it scary, make it frightening. Just make it the way you like it! Remember, the the free annual Pumpkin Mask costume and other premium LittleBigPlanet costumes can be downloaded via the PlayStation Store.
In addition to Halloween related LittleBigPlanet downloadable content, The Nightmare Before Christmas Level Kit and it's costumes are also available on the PlayStation Store year-round.
ack in September, LittleBigPlanet's finest all clumped together like silly putty at this year's LittleBigPlanet 3 Game Jam. No, I'm not talking about a bunch of people covering themselves in jam and then clumping together and playing games, weirdo. I'm talking about where the very creators that exist in the LittleBigPlanet community come together and make things happen! Whooo! The purpose of the LittleBigPlanet 3 Game Jam is to give these brilliant minds a very special taste of the next installment in the LittleBigPlanet franchise and to possibly collaborate and create some wacky yet interesting things for all to see! Here's an in-depth video of exactly what went down behind the scenes. You'd be surprised by what these creative minds come up with. Enjoy!
And there you have it ladies and gentlemen. They're an interesting bunch aren't they? These are the very creators who've been playing LittleBigPlanet in their homes just like you and I. Isn't it amazing?
LittleBigPlanet Daily - LittleBigPlanet 3's PlayStation 4 Pre-Order Mega Pack Is Available Right Now
arlier this year the LittleBigPlanet 3 North American and European pre-order details were released. LittleBigPlanet 3 is expected to arrive in North America on November 18th, 2014 but was delayed in Europe and will be released on November 24th, 2014 for various reasons.
Today, I present to you even more LittleBigPlanet 3 pre-order goodness. Introducing the LittleBigPlanet 3 pre-order bundles. There's 3 of them and they're all chock-full of things that will make you go and buy all of them. But slow down there tiger. You may want to read their contents carefully. After all, it's all about you, the player. Just whatever takes your fancy.
If you want my personal opinion on all this, I'd say the Extras Editon is good for those who already own a PlayStation 4 system and just want to jump into the game with no extra doo-dads. Starting from the ground up is great if you're into that sort of thing.
If you're new to the next-gen era of consoles, might I direct you to the PlayStation 4 Bundle. That way, you'll get a shiny new console and a physical version of the game. However, you'll be missing out on the included DLC in the Extras Editon.
Now, if you're the type who likes sharing their win, playing with others and collecting plushies, why not purchase the PlayStation 4 Mega Pack? Again, it will be missing out on the DLC included in the Extra's Pack, however you will also get 1 additional DualShock 4 controller, a PlayStation 4 Camera peripheral and an adorable Oddsock plushie for your bookshelf... or bed... or dresser... Again, whatever takes your fancy.
