"Hi there Sack-folk! Hopefully you’ve been enjoying some of the LittleBigPlanet 2 “Featurette” trailers over the last few weeks – if you missed them, be sure to go back and check out Sackbots and The Creatinator for an insight into some of the insanely huge possibilities that these new features offer. There will plenty more new trailers popping up in the coming weeks, so stay tuned." (LittleBigPlanet 2, PS3)

Update Alex Pavey updates:

"Hi everyone – just to clarify – this is the version of the Collector’s Edition that will be available across the whole of Europe at a really good value. In addition, keep an eye on your local retailers for details of other additional offers for your own countries soon."

'Is this a joke? There is nothing collectible about this.

Where is the plushie sackboy? Where is the “game ends”? Where are the PSN avatars? Why are we getting shafted again here in EU.'

I normally hate the blog comments but I completely agree with this one.
Lucreto  +   1658d ago
We get the avatars but only half of the costume packs the other half is pre-order bonus's from different retailers. So Jak & Daxter and Ratchet & Clank will be at different retailers.

sorry to say but this is garbage, just look at US editions, we get scr**ed by SCEE again, where's the sackboy, where's the book end, best ever CE is US only.

Plus US CE has Ratchet & Clank, Jack & Daxter costumes, in Europe they're added to different retailers to pre-orders, so you can't get them all (without paying extra), what a bunch of F___ !!!!!!!11

yeah, but do you think they do this on purpose?
Shadow Flare  +   1658d ago
That does suck but technically couldn't we just order the US collectors edition anyway? PS3 games are region free after all. Maybe the case might be larger and increase the shipping cost though. This does suck though. And Media Molecule themselves are English, so why are we getting shafted?
Red_Orange_Juice  +   1658d ago
well it wasn't an accident right? they were aware of US edition and how much less they're giving to us, so pretty much technically it was on purpose

Most of the time us and eu work independently..
they need to work together for such things

... and again and again and again.

And importing isn't really an option, simply because you run a big risk of having to pay extra taxes when you import it, plus an extra cost to the post-office, and that's even without considering that the DLC might be region-locked...

It's just absolutely fucking ridiculous how Sony keeps mistreating their european customers like this.

Not that I'm surprised btw. I already called this a long time ago. I just knew that we, once again, would get shafted big time.

EU got gimped.. It's funny though the Americans will still claim EU get everything off Sony though..
Yi-Long  +   1658d ago
Once again, we get screwed...
... and for what? Why is it so fucking hard to just give us in Europe the exact same Collector's Edition as they get elsewhere!?

Fucking SCEE... always screwing us over. Activision and Bobby are getting stiff competition from SCEE in their war against loyal customers...

to be fair, they did say that the collectors edition would have more content that would differ from country to country, so we still dont know all the content that will be in the package
Davoh  +   1658d ago
If they were planning on keeping any extra content as a surprise they should really start considering letting the cat out the bag as right now there's a lot of angry and disappointed fans.

MediamMolecule are a UK based studio too. Why are they giving the 2 fingered salut to us Brits? They need to sort this out ASAP!
DigitalAnalog  +   1658d ago
You know, SCEE is doing a disservice to the fans
Especially if the developer is from the UK. This barely classifies as a "special" edition let alone "collecting".

Oh well, at least I pre-ordered the superior US version.

-End statement
Squall5005  +   1658d ago
I've created a Facebook group to get Media Molecule to see the error of their ways. Although I doubt it will work.

Feel feel to join anyway. That includes you too, US gamers. After all, we did give you a hand in WW2 =P

the group is called:

'Get the US Collector's Editon of LittleBigPlanet 2 released in the UK'

If you can think of a more catchy name I will change it =P

Why did MM announce the other version such a long time ago, take it down from the likes of Amazon and then re-announce this garbage? Big, big disappointment MM, BIG.
Lucreto  +   1658d ago
It is gimped no doubt about it.

Not even half of the content the US got.

I wouldn't be as annoyed if it was a US company who made the game as it would be expected to get less content but a UK company shunning Europe I expected more from them.
sarshelyam  +   1658d ago
I'm a bit surprised. It's usually us in the states that are whining about the killer CE's Europe gets, but now we win in a CE bargain? I feel bad for those folks across the pond, but that's the beauty of PS3...just import ours ladies and gents.
DigitalRaptor  +   1658d ago
Not as easy as that. DLC might be region specific.
KratosGirI  +   1658d ago
No Sackboy, no buy.
Rayz3d6yW0lves  +   1658d ago
is this the surprise?
shafting a large chunk of their fanbase?
Ive never understood why these gaming companies do that, why not release the same content worldwide? I'm looking at you xbox live and psn+

Haha, check out those comments underneath the blog...
SCEE are getting absolutely ripped apart. And so they should, Europe is getting shafted no matter which way they would like to spin it. It's not enough that we get mistreated by Nintendo time and time again (I only found out last week that we have to wait 'til February to get Kirby's Epic Yarn >:O), now Sony are getting in on the act as well. I have a lot of respect for Sony, but if this "Collector's Edition" goes ahead then I'm ain't touching it.

Sony has always done that
To be honest Sony has always done that (disregarding Europe I mean) and even more than the others (MS and Nintendo although the Kirby's story is a painful one).

We have no one differently coloured PS3, they just release them in Japan (pathetic) and the EU PSN content is always slimmer than the American PSN one... not to mention all those not in the UK don't even have access to Qore and that stuff (as if only UK and NA people could read and write English...).
And so on and on... SONY hasn't realized yet Europe is their second largest market and not that smaller than the North American one...

All the European should sign this: http://www.petitiononline.c...

And also non EU for solidarity's sake among players :)!
