What’s in the LittleBigPlanet 2: Cross-Controller Pack?

 

Sackboy’s latest adventure is chock full of a wonderful array of goodies that we know you all can’t wait to hear to find out about, so here’s a rundown of just what you’ll be getting.

 

  • A Brand New Story – Our new theme will see Sackboy travelling across the Omniverse to discover the lost treasure!
  • Five Costumes – Sackboy will be fully kitted out for his new adventure with five brand new costumes! Don’t forget about our Cross-Buy Costumes! If you purchase this pack, these costumes will also work on LittleBigPlanet PS Vita and will become available in LittleBigPlanet Karting in a future update!
  • Four New Tools – The Worm Hole, the Vitanator, the Remote Tag Sensor and the Tag Radar are all available to help you create your own Cross-Controller experience.
  • Creative Goodies – 26 Objects, 25 Materials, 74 Decorations, 148 Stickers, three Interactive Music Tracks and one Background are all waiting to be picked up by your Sackboy to add to their Popit to help fulfil their creative needs.
  • Five Tutorials – Finishing up the Cross-Controller Pack, we have five brand new tutorials all voiced by LittleBigPlanet’s favourite narrator, Stephen Fry. These should really help you get to grips with the new tools and Sackboy’s headfirst dive into Cross-Controller gameplay!

What is a Worm Hole?

 

The Worm Hole is Sackboy’s brilliant new teleportation tool that will enable him to travel safely from one Worm Hole to another within the same level without fear of losing a life.

 

This handy new tool will even allow Sackboy to teleport from your PS3 to your PS Vita and vice-versa, should you want him to return home. The most intuitive and creative level designers will even be able to use the tool to remove Sackboy from gameplay and effectively lock him in a state of stasis whilst action is taking place elsewhere in the level…However we’ll leave it up to you and Sackboy to discover just what potential his new Worm Hole discovery holds for LittleBigPlanet and the rest of the Omniverse!

 

Head into the Unexplored Cosmos Today

 

Sackboy has his brand new mission, so head on over to the Store today and you can pick up the LittleBigPlanet 2: Cross-Controller Pack, available for the PS3 for $4.99. Just a friendly reminder, you will need a PS3, PS Vita and a copy of LittleBigPlanet 2 for the new DLC pack. If you don’t already have a copy of LBP 2, there are a couple of easy ways to pick up a copy at a really great value. It’s currently a free PSN download for all PS Plus members, and starting today it will also be available for $13.99 as part of the Holiday Essentials Sale on PlayStation Store until December 24th.

 

Help Sackboy save the day in his new adventure and then use your newly collected goodies to create your own levels, we cannot wait to see just what kind of Cross-Controller adventures that our creative community can design!

You do not need LBP Vita.  What you need are: PS3, LBP2 and a PS Vita system.

Buy the DLC for LBP2 (once it goes live on the PSN Store tonight), fire up LBP2 on your PS3, then on your Vita, head to the Remote Play app and tap the Cross Controller icon (if it doesn't connect, you need to make sure you're connecting to the same account on both devices and that your Vita is registered with your PS3).  The Cross Controller feature was added with Vita firmware update (I believe) 1.81.

I could be wrong, but I don't think that's how it's going to work.  I read something a little while ago that LBP2 was going to install something on your Vita, and the Cross Controller functions were going to be through a unique app for the game on the Vita.  Trying to find the article now, but not having any luck at, though I did find a few things in comments on a blog:

EDIT SPACE

 

I found an article, not the one I was looking for, but one much newer (today):
