Sony Announces LittleBigPlanet 2 PS3 Update 1.12 Incoming, Details

200°
105w ago - 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.

Dive-In

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!

Boo-Be-Gone

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...
