FlaminTampon, PSN name x1Grandhustle1x, is planning on having a game night for the first LittleBigPlanet tomorrow night from 8PM CST to 10PM CST. Since LBP online only allows for up to 4 people to play on a single server, space is limited, unless we get more and some of you wouldn’t mind splitting up and playing separately from another group. After all, no one said we all had to be on the same server, right?
With that said, any future Game Nights that need points awarded, please PM me the list of players who participated, what they won, etc. and I will give them their points (assuming Tosh hasn’t done so already). I will also award those who ‘lead’ the servers extra points for helping out. Have fun!
December is looking like a busy month for LittleBigPlanet 2. There is going to be a PSN-released standalone spin-off game called Sacboy’s Prehistoric Moves, which shows off some of the PlayStation Move controls that will be in LBP2, with a theme surrounding prehistoric times (with a boss called Evil Big Rex).
You can play with up to 4 friends, but only one person can play with the Move (so the other three will need a DS3/Sixaxis). This is a co-op, multiplayer-only title, though, and you must own a Move, and have someone else to use a regular controller. This title will be available December 14th for $5.99. If you’re a PS+ subscriber, you get it a week early, and for free!
An LBP2 Story Mode demo is scheduled to hit as well. You will have access to many of the tools in the game, including the Grapple Hook, Creatinator, Sackbots, etc. The demo will be available on the PlayStation Store on December 21st.
And finally, in the early part of December (date to be determined), more beta invites will go out to PlayStation Plus members. Not sure what the requirements will be, but given the recent track record with beta invites, I woul assume they’re going to be sending them through the PSN messaging system.
“A new super-fast server,” has just gone live for Little Big Planet, and brings with it some new features. Cool Levels, MM Picks, and Play Queues are all now available. These features have been live in the LBP2 beta, and are pretty cool.
With Play Queues, “When you find a cool level you think you might want to play later, you can just hit the square button, and then choose to add it to your Queue. Your Queue can be found in Searches > My Searches. ” There will also be a LBP.me launching soon that will allow you to add queues directly from the web.
When it comes to failed games development, it’s very easy to push the blame game towards the direction of big publishing companies like Sony. More often than not, we hear of accusations flying back and forth as to how stifled the creative process was to the impediment of what could have been “the best game ever FTW!”. But no, not Sony. So says Media Molecule.
The LittleBigPlanet creators stand by their man, Sony, telling people at the Eurogamer Expo that not all publishers are out to just make a quick buck and leave the developers by their fragile selves as soon as the game’s out and reaping in money.
Said Alex Evans, “The nice thing about the industry, and I think you see it in all of the big publishers, Sony especially, is that they’re not in it for a quick buck. There’s no point, especially for a first party title, putting out something that’s nearly there, like 99% there […] Sony have been so amazingly supportive. It’s not easy to phone them up and go ‘Guys, we’re not there yet’. You know, they couldhave said ‘F*** it, we don’t care’ and the point is, they didn’t.”
Their fondness for each other is very apparent too. After all, LBP remains to be PS3 exclusive. Regardless of that however, what’s good to hear is that Sony can be the good guy every once in a while.

Another Marvel character hits the LBP Universe. Today we show you Magneto, king of all that is magnetic. Wonder if all of these costumes will have the character attributes like in the Comics.
