Sony Announces LittleBigPlanet 2 PS3 Update 1.12 Incoming, Details
Sony LBP Community Coordinator Steven Isbell has announced today news of LittleBigPlanet 2 PS3 update 1.12 arriving this week, with details on the new features for PlayStation 3 fan below!
To quote: Update 1.12 for LittleBigPlanet 2 will be out this week, and it will introduce a few nifty features to the game.
The Dive-In feature has now been moved to the top of the Community menu, and has been vastly rewired and improved to help players easily find some new Sackfolk to play with during their adventures!
To help encourage creativity, we have removed the Boos from the Level Rating System. You can still Yay a level to say that you really liked it, but we found that the Boo ratings were disheartening at best, and could be used to cause grief amongst the community.
If you happen to find something you don't like because it's rude or mean or just plain offensive, then hit the Select Button and use the Good Grief System to report it to our moderation team.
Comments & Reviews
If you have just played a level and wish to provide the creator with some helpful feedback, then you can still use the level's comments section or perhaps leave a nice and informative review for the entire community to read.
If you're a busy creator though and would like to take a break from the reviews and comments on your level, you can now choose to disable reviews and/or comments on your profile and levels via the Settings Page on [Register or Login to view links]. You won't lose anything though, it will just block people from seeing them, or adding more, until you re-enable it again.
Onto the Mm Picks for last week, we featured a couple of fun Easter themed levels, an adventure involving Rapunzel and her magical hair, an intergalactic 3D space battle and the most awesome pinball machine using Sackbots that you have ever seen!
The Journey Costume Pack for LittleBigPlanet is being released at the end of the month and it's nice to see some people already getting excited for this release, as can be seen in the following photograph by [Register or Login to view links] of their Sackboys wearing a pair of fine custom-made Journey Costumes!
Don't forget to stay tuned to Sack it to Me next week for the reveal of another Costume Pack being released on the same day! Both of which can be picked up on April 24th!
Come and Join the LittleBigPlanet Family!
LittleBigPlanet is a continually evolving Omniverse of imagination and creativity, which needs a few equally awesome folks to join the LittleBigPlanet family to help expand LittleBigPlanet even further than you could possibly imagine!

Yeah - sure - your levels actually ARE crap but we'll not tell you from now on so you can post even MORE crap for everyone else to "enjoy". What a stupid way to "encourage" anything ...
Putting blinds over somebodys eyes is not gona solve anything and we'll be just flooded with rubbish you'll be not even able to tag as a crap so more and more people will be forced to sift through that and eventually decide not to bother anymore with community levels (both play and create) so in the end it would have exactly the opposite effect than intended. Not really well thought through, was it??
