LittleBigPlanet 2: Mm Picks
Our LittleBigPlanet 2: Mm Picks this week include a scenic jaunt through a variety of fun platforming levels. You can either take in the night-time atmosphere of Paris or the wonderful lights of the Spectrum Caverns, or run amok in a barn with some chickens! Whatever you decide to do, you’ll be sure to have fun in these great levels.

LittleBigPlanet PS Vita: Team picks
This week we have three brand new LittleBigPlanet PS Vita team picks for you and they couldn’t be any more different. One is a very artistic silhouette platformer, the other a match-3 puzzle game, and the last is a top-down shooter.

LittleBigPlanet Karting: Team picks!

We’re starting this round of team picks off with Turbine Toxique, a new track by Caiman_6 that will have you dodging toxic sludge and hurling cookies at your opponents – all in the name of first place!

Take a look at our first race lined up for you today!

If racing through a dangerous turbine isn’t your speed, have no fear; we’ve got tons of variety this week. We’re also featuring a winding race through a beautiful snowy village, a track built entirely on a comet in space, a huge medieval-style arena featuring an equally huge castle, and even a romp through a massively detailed casino! So no matter what you prefer, there’s definitely something for everyone. Enjoy!

Spot Light is such a wonderful lvl <3.


Oh yeah, I loved my rustic jaunt through the Chicken Farm! :)

I never complain about free stuff I can always use it but you could at least make this costume a little bit different as it’s exactly the same you gave away 3 years ao and probably the next years too. Like I said, I can always use free stuff which is never enough but even if you didn’t wanted to redesign it, a different color would be cool.


We currently have 14 great free costumes that we release annually and a handful of other free costumes that aren’t connected to an annual holiday.

Which holidays do you feel that we’re missing out on? :)

Yea how about some new free outfits? :p
Oh, and I would love to see a pricecut on the LBP2 dlc, they’ve been there for a while now..

Wait a minute
There is a Go-Karting LBP game?? When did this happen?
I feel like i have been hiding under a rock….. but i read lots of gaming news – was this even advertised on release?

Checks it out – Oh… not on vita :(

Any plans?


(off topic here) what’s happening with ps all stars now that sony have cut ties with superbot?. will we still get Kat and emmett DLC and the much needed patches?.

@Steven Re:#2: Obviously Carnival is missing :-)
However, slightly changing the designs from year to year might have been nice. Something with snakes for Feb 10, for example?



The problem is not that you are currently giving 14 great free costumes, the problem is that they are the same 14 free costumes that you have given away every year since LBP1.

So you may think it’s great that you are giving free costumes, but for the loyal LBP fans (me included), we are getting nothing. The same thing. Every year. We already have all this stuff, so what about us?

Please add me
