As a follow-up to our previous post, today SCEA Marketing Manager Mark Valledor has officially announced LittleBigPlanet - Game of the Year Edition for PS3. According to the boxart (below), it's also bound for PlayStation Home.
To quote: Today, we're pleased to announce the upcoming release of LittleBigPlanet - Game of the Year edition, which will ship to stores on September 8th for $59.99 with a "Sackful" of bonus content.
First off, you'll get the full award-winning LittleBigPlanet gameplay experience, or as we like to call it "Play Create Share" - ok, that was a bit to 'infomercially' (sorry), but you get the idea.
Everything that made LittleBigPlanet one of the biggest games on the PS3 is in there.
Next, to give our new fans a taste of the over 1,000,000 user-generated levels available on the PlayStation Network, Media Molecule has hand-picked 18 extraordinary people to Create bonus levels specifically for the GOTY edition - complete with interviews with each creator. We loved how these levels turned out and hope you will to.
And, for everyone looking for a great value, the GOTY edition includes 7 packs from the PlayStation Store. These packs feature tons of costumes, stickers, objects, new levels and the "Paintinator" to amplify the fun you'll have. Once more, these are on the disc FREE (that's nearly a $30 value)
Content Packs* include:
- Metal Gear Solid Level Pack - featuring the "Paintinator" paintball gun
- Metal Gear Solid Costumes
- Monsters Costumes
- Monsters Pack
- History Costumes
- History Pack
- Animals Costumes
Finally, as a peek at the next game in the "Play, Create, Share" family, a limited supply of LittleBigPlanet - Game of the Year Editions will include a special voucher code for the upcoming ModNation Racers Online Beta.
This is your chance to play ModNation Racers before the game comes out in 2010. If you haven't checked out ModNation yet, and you're a big-time racing fan, always dreamed of creating your own track, or you're into vinyl art - head on over to www.ModNation.com and register.
So to summarize the bonus content:
- 18 new levels made by players just like you
- 7 different content packs
- Exclusive access to the upcoming ModNation Online beta
All together, with bonus content valued at over $30, the award-winning experience and over 1,000,000 levels to play online, it's a great offer for those that haven't joined the LittleBigPlanet community yet... all bundled in one neat little 'sack'.
