Sack it to Me: It’s time to Deck the Halls!

What a whirlwind year this has been for LittleBigPlanet. We have had two brand new games recently and we’re now heading into December, which can only mean one thing: Christmas is on the way!

To help kick the festivities into gear, we will be re-releasing the Santa Costume and Festive Minipack this week, which you can use to help craft your own Christmas creations.

This is just the beginning of the fun, though! The Winter Seasonal Creator Kit will be seeing a release later this month too and we even have a couple more surprises for everybody to look forward to. More news on those soon, so stay tuned!

Seasonal Spirits Crown Contest

Whilst everybody is getting ready to join in with the holiday cheer, the folks over at LBPCentral.comand are doing things a little differently this year and are working on putting together a particularly Creepy Christmas with their new Seasonal Spirits Crown Contest.

Seasonal Spirits

The rules are fairly simple, just create a new level featuring a real mash-up of Halloween and Christmas themes, and then let the fun begin! For full details on this new contest, head on over to or now.

LittleBigPlanet. The face of playstation!


I’m sick of hearing about LBP.

Gave up on the series a while back.I do love it,but the things I wanted to create never really worked for me.
I spent so much time trying to create a cool style shooter,but could never master using the move as a paint tool.

It looked really good when animated,but was so time consuming that I just gave up.

I sort of mo-capped frames of me doing the actions with the eye,and painted over it.Even keep my beast arms in 🙂
I had all sorts of cool logic ideas and set up’s but couldn’t paint with the thing.

I tried going back the other week and use the camera to import a few test images i’d done

Not good at art so be kind,learning about shading over an hour of creating was fun though (not near perecting it)

If I could import pics,or use a mouse or even the DS3 in the paint mode I would of carried it on.


Not really interested in the Christmas pack. It is seriously lacking in actual content IMO. I have, however, played the 8-Bit levels on LBP Vita and I am gob smacked at how good it is!


I wouldn’t mind a Christmas Level pack(say with 5 ‘MM’ Levels) with Trophies?:P + i wish in LBP:Karting there wasn’t that dreaded(well by me anyway):D spend 24 hours in crate mode trophy:-/ I hated that Trophy in LBP2 & now its back in LBP:Karting:-( (Yes i know i don’t have to go for it but the Plat looks do’a’ble) Oh well;)

♫ I don’t want a lot for Christmas,
There is just one thing I need,♪

♪ I don’t care about the other games
I could play on PS3…♫

♪ I don’t want to whine and moan,
I’d just really’d like to know,♫

♫ My costumes in LBP Twooooo…
When can I have’m in Kartiiiiiiing tooooo?♪


Ok, off topic but please have a heart and respond.

I read that Milestone has released free DLC for their WRC 3 game on the playstation Vita but I can’t find anything in the store. I am accessing the EU/Greek store. Is there any information on the subject?
Will it be available?

Sorry the link isn’t working.

Fabix has made a superb windows OS on the Vita using LBPV.

For those of you without a Vita there is a video on youtube of him showing it off (he is speaking Italian but you get the jist of what he is on about ;-))

You HAVE to check it out 🙂


Why can’t i play online now on LBP:Karting???
Did a update today for the game & now i can’t play it online??? :-/ It says – “Your connection to the Game Server was lost. You must be connected to access online portions of LittleBigPlanet Karting”
I keep trying but it always says the same. Was it the update that has messed it up maybe???

What’s going on with Cross-Controller compatibility?

It baffles me why I can’t just use my Vita as a PS3 controller in the first place. Now WiiU comes along and steals its thunder.

Come ON, Sony, show us some INNOVATION. At times it seems Sony are content just to let the community innovate while Sony just sit back and count their slowly decreasing piles of cash. The LBP community has done far more to impress than Sony have in a long time.

The Cross-controller DLC will be out this month it only the 1st week it will more likely be out just befor Xmas I say next week or week after the part of the Xmas store update. 🙂

lbp is the best game ever

I can’t find this packs anywhere.
(the 5th region)

Is LBP2 a good game to buy it?
