LittleBigPlanet PS3 Update, Marvel Costume Packs and Level Kit
SCEA Marketing Manager Mark Valledor has posted up this week's LittleBigPlanet PS3 community update, which includes new Marvel Costume Packs and a LBP Level Kit and more!
To quote: A few weeks back, during the Mm Community Jam, Alex, myself and the rest of the Mm team stayed up all night with our super-users.
And when you combine no sleep + coffee / energy drinks / both with fun, creative minds and lots of laughter ensues. Particularly at my expense, as they found out I was the Marketing Manager for Genji: Days of the Blade.
From then it was nonstop Genji talk, ending in a brilliant auto-tuned song dedicated to me, with brilliant lyrics and chorus of "Massive Damage" / "Giant Crabs". Payback time...

More LBP shirts on its way to Hot Topic
Just found out that these two shirts will be available in-store for our fans. Be sure to check out your nearest http://community.hottopic.com/storelocator on 6/28. Last we heard, previous shirts at Hot Topic sold out uber-fast, so make sure you get there before they're out.
In my opinion, LBP comes out with way too much DLC. I've had several occasions where I download a costume pack and then come to the sad realization that I don't even own half of the DLC after I have paid half of the games worth in costume packs. I think that LBP is a great game, and LBP2 will be a great game without the help of DLC.
