70w ago - Today Sony has announced the official LittleBigPlanet PS Vita launch dates for the US on September 25th in North America and September 19th in Europe.
To quote from Community Coordinator Simon Rosenkotter at Tarsier Studios:
It's time. Time to reveal the LittleBigPlanet PS Vita release date! The game will be available in North America on Tuesday, September 25th. That's right, in just a few short weeks you'll experience Sackboy's next adventure, set on the mysterious traveling planet of Carnivalia.
We've put together a featurette video for the game, which you can watch up at the top of this post. The video will tell you a little bit more about LittleBigPlanet Vita's story.
Thanks to PS Vita's unique features, you'll be able to play completely new game experiences and share your levels with the world wherever you are and whenever you feel like it.
You can take pictures of anything you see while you're out and about, and use them to decorate Sackboy or customize your level. It's never been easier to make your cat or dog the hero of your level!
74w ago - Sony Associate Producer Jason Coker has officially announced the LittleBigPlanet Karting PS3 and PS Vita Beta release dates today alongside a recap of the recent San Diego Game Jam below.
To quote: I'm happy to report to you all that the LittleBigPlanet Karting Beta will begin next Tuesday, July 10th.
Those of you lucky enough to be selected will start receiving codes next week, and we will be sending out vouchers to more people as the test continues through Tuesday, July 31st, so if you haven't registered yet, make your way over and sign up ASAP right here.
In related news, we recently had a really amazing group of LBP creators join us for an entire week here at SCEA's San Diego Studio where they were able to get their hands dirty experimenting with LBP Karting's Create tools.
I think it's safe to say that a good time was had by all, and the participants gave us invaluable feedback on some tweaks that will end up giving you all really great experience when LBP Karting hits store shelves later this year.
The LBP franchise has always had a strong community element so it was great to have the people we're making the game for in our studio face to face talking through their creative ideas and processes. At the end of the day, this level of interaction...
76w ago - Tarsier Studios Community Coordinator Simon Rosenkotter has announced today that those who pre-order LittleBigPlanet for PS Vita will receive both Knights and BioShock costumes as detailed below.
To quote: Starting today, LittleBigPlanet fans will be able to pre-order the upcoming PS Vita installment of the game, and those who do will get themselves a snazzy set of bonus costumes as a big thank you!
The bonus costumes include the iconic Big Daddy and Little Sister from BioShock, as well as new Knights of Old costumes to dress up your Sackboy or Sackgirl as a knight, damsel in distress, black knight, or a fearsome dragon.
The details of this offer will vary depending on which country you live in or where you pre-order from, but here are some pictures of the costumes to whet your appetite.
Pretty cool, right? What's especially neat is that the particular colors of these pre-order Knights of Old costumes will remain exclusive forever!
In other news, as you might have heard E3 took place last week in sunny Los Angeles. We had a great time showing off LittleBigPlanet PS Vita to everyone who came by and got an amazing response. Here's what a few media outlets had to say.
80w ago - Sony Producer Kyle Zundel of San Diego Studios has made available a glimpse of LittleBigPlanet Karting for PS3 multiplayer fans, which will be featured at E3 2012 next week.
To quote: With E3 less than a week away, I wanted to take this opportunity to provide a quick update on what you'll be seeing at the show in Los Angeles.
We'll be unveiling our multiplayer mode, which supports one to four players offline and one to eight players online, and I'm sure you'll be reading plenty of hands-on reports from the press during E3 week. I can tell you that it's addictively fun - you won't want to put the controller down!
We'll also be showing off more of the single-player campaign that users will be able to explore, as well as some of the additional non-racing experiences that are unique to LBP Karting, so get ready!
Secondly, I wanted to quickly thank our friends in the press who have spoken highly of Sackboy's newest karting adventure. As IGN put it..."LittleBigPlanet Karting is already an incredibly promising step up and a great new direction for the LittleBigPlanet franchise."
Lastly, I wanted to pass along a quick reminder about our pre-order bonus offer.
