Sony have posted on their blog loads of details about Little Big Planet 2, all of the details are responses to questions that people have been asking and it seems that although they are eager to hold out until E3, they are generous enough to let some stuff fly. Here’s a few of the best questions, but why not head over to the blog for the rest?
Are the LittleBigPlanet DLC costumes going to be compatible with LBP2?
Yes, any LBP1 costumes purchased on the PlayStation Store will be compatible with LittleBigPlanet 2 – We can’t wait to see you what you guys do with the various costumes combined with the new cinematic tools!
I hope this is on a FAQ – are the first LBP and GOTY edition levels going to be included with LBP2?
The wonderfully fun LBP1 story levels will remain unique to its Blu-ray disc, but you’ll see familiar elements/tools/items as part of the foundation for LittleBigPlanet 2. And while the community levels will be unique to the GOTY edition – hopefully if you guys vote for us again, you’ll see something similar in the future…
Will any of the new costume DLC that will be released after LBP2 is released be compatable with the first game?
LittleBigPlanet 2 has been redesigned with a completely new graphics engine, so costumes and upcoming DLC designed for LittleBigPlanet 2 will not be compatible for LBP1 players.
Will LBP2 include from launch day all the DLC of LBP1? Including costumes level packs and all that good stuff?
Because of the backwards compatibility for LBP1 DLC, all the costumes on the PlayStation Store will still be available for purchase. Expect to see a ton more content in the next few months, including the eventual LittleBigPlanet 2 DLC.
Can you program Sackbots to activate swithces? *Example* giving them jobs on a pirate ship.
Stay tuned, we have a specific “Sackbots” feature planned in an upcoming LittleBigPlanet 2 post – we just hope you provide your Pirate Sackbots the proper minimum wages!
