I have just reached 'The collector' story level and as soon as I went in, all the materials were invisible, i'm taking pictures and soon I will upload them, but all i can see are switches, mouths, eyes, lights, etc. i'm literately floating, heh if i can ace it like this i'll be a true master :p

Does anybody have any idea what is going on? :confused:

I have just discovered that EVERY level has this glitch now, even community levels, what has happened to my PS3?!

I doubt that's good at all actually, those kinda glitches "usually" (Not always) means a system Is near, or nearing its ending point.

So I would reccomend backing-up all yer data, and soon dude. :)

Ther IS a chance its a random glitch, did it happen once only, or is it happening a lot/ always?

That's what I was going to suggest you do... Just export the pics to your hdd from your pop it and go to the upload site... Works for flickr, should work wi most upload sites.

And this is the first boss you battle!

and this is the final battle boss!

Unfortunately I died, after all, I couldn't see the electricity so i was just chancing my luck but, i did notice some other strange glitches, occasionally Black gas would completely fill the room but I wouldn't die and also when the collector escapes into the room so you cant touch him, he actually falls over, unfortunately I couldn't video it!

I wonder if this glitch happens again, I would love to explore it more!

Whats with everyone and this method XD
The easier method is to export the photos, and use the PS3s Photo editor and upload them to Picasa from there, It is very easy since it was MADE to do that all it is a click of a button.

anyway cool pictures :D

Oh, wow. That looks cool.

If it isn't game-breaking, then I like that glitch :)

Heh, that happens to me sometimes too, but it only happens for about 10 seconds, and then everything comes back, but someone could make a level with invisible material and you have to navigate and assume what goes where with magnetic keys and pistons, that would be cool.

Wait, what do you mean you have no way to back up your data? LBP provides one in the menus, dude. Look it up.

Well...Its not like its the most complicated level out there, you just walk forward and reach the boss pretty much...
So pressing the analog stick towards the right would be the answer I believe. :p

He means he has no USB storage devices, he can back it up to the PS3, but then what?
If his PS3 crashes he's shrewed dude, that's what he means.

I have been trying to glitch the Collector,

You can get on top of the first boss and have it bounce you to the second one when it raises again, but the 2nd one won't do anything until the floor is raised I think.

I don't think this has much to do with this, but if you grab the disolve material that is surrounding it, first you will get the first bubble free. Second, if you time it right, you will get flung up and you're able to get the second bubble, skipping the first stage of the first boss! :D
