here is some LBP downloadable content you can expect to see in the near future:
First, we know we've had a bumpy release, and for your patience, we're releasing a handful of free downloadable content on the PlayStation Store (starting 11/6)
- "Launch" Spacesuit (Only available from 11/6 to 11/19)

In addition to the 'fan appreciation gifts' mentioned above, we wanted to share an overview of the types of DLC headed your way. Check back here every Wednesday to see what new DLC will be available on the PlayStation Store the next day...
One category of downloads will be, no surprise, SackBoy costumes. You've already seen a few of our pre-order announcements and partnerships with PlayStation Alumni, but this is only a snippet of available downloads to come. We're hard at work to provide weekly downloads to keep the community fresh and active. Here are a few items we have in store for you down the line...
Seasonal & Limited Time Only Costumes - FREE
The "launch" SpaceSuit and Halloween mask is a perfect example of this. These types of items will be available for a short amount of time only so look for these around special events and holidays.
Community Costumes - FREE
Remember LittleBigChallenge 003? We're finalizing the winners now, so stay tuned. These will be available for free and over time, you'll see more and more of these types of free downloads for LBP community.

Continue to customize your SackBoy/SackGirl with brand new outfits that will be available in a variety of themes and designs. Here's a sneak peek of a few costumes in the works...

Its no secret, that we love the rest of the PlayStation family and we want the SackPeople to be able to dress up as their favorite characters. Stay tuned for more announcements with new costumes from our PlayStation family and even some outside the family... Here's a few of the ones we've already announced...
RARE SackBoy Costumes - $?.??
In time, we're hoping to introduce very rare items that are both only available for a certain amount of time and extremely collectible.

At times, we'll offer four basic costumes at a great price...to make things easier for the 'must collect everything I see' personalities
