Attention PAX attendees! Tom and I (Spaff) are going to be at the show and we’d love to see you.
We’ll be spending most of our time over the three days at The LittleBigPlanet area of the Sony booth, where you’ll be able to get your hands on LittleBigPlanet 2, and maybe browse the Sackboy related goods in the merchandise stall.
We’ll also have some of our community all-stars (Jaeyden, Morgana25, Comphermc, and ConfusedCartman) at the event who will be jamming and creating things live, so you can see what kind of things can be made with the new tools, and get some handy hints and tips from them on building your own levels.
Additionally we’ll be presenting various aspects of the game at the LittleBigPlanet ‘Genius Bar’, and we should have some special play challenges and other crazy things going on, so pop on by and say hey!
See you at PAX!
P.S If you come and high five me or tom, we’ll give you a badge to celebrate how awesome you are, until we run out of them of course.

Starting July 7th, an awesome set of four packs containing various Marvel heroes (and villains!) will begin making their way to the PlayStation Store. The first will hit the store July 7th, with each successive pack releasing every other following week. If we've done our math right, you can look forward to new Marvel costumes the weeks of July 7th, July 21st, August 4th, and August 18th. There's even a matching Level Kit on the way, with four Marvel-themed levels full to the brim with music, objects, materials, stickers, and even a special “Rooftop” background for you to collect. Even more details on the Level Kit are on their way next week!

At this point you’re probably vaguely aware of the Community Game Jam. We thought that article detailing what it was like to be there would be an interesting read for you, but of course it wouldn’t be fair for us to tell you all about how much fun we had without sharing what we’ve learned while we were at MM Towers!
The version of the game that we had access to was by no means final and the time that we had with the game was nowhere near enough to experience all it has to offer. Also, keep in mind as well that there was a fair amount of partying, sleep deprivation, giggly girlish joy, and overall awesome that may have somewhat clouded our memories, so take this list as an indication of the power of the new game and understand that it may be subject to change between now and release.
So, many thanks to everyone at Media Molecule and Sony for being such fantastic hosts. Also many thanks to all the creators at the Creator Jam, it was an absolute pleasure meeting you all it wouldn't have been possible to put together this information to share with the community without your help over the last week:

Article by Matthew Compher, aka comphermc
As many of you are aware, Media Molecule recently played host to a number of talented LittleBigPlanet creators from around the world. This event was held in order to allow the group to experience the new features LittleBigPlanet 2 brings to the table, while drumming up content to be used in press events and the like. The event, held in Mm's new Guildford studio the weekend of June 4th, was aptly dubbed the Community Game Jam 2010. I've done my best to fill this article to the veritable brim with summaries and impressions of the whole ordeal, all taken from attendees, and all put together in an attempt to accurately describe what went down. It is written from my perspective, but we have included the viewpoints of many others in the article (by way of quotes and recollections) as well. Enjoy!

We've gone through the effort of breaking down the newly released announcement trailer for LittleBigPlanet 2, frame by delicious frame. We used the raw 720p video to grab screenshots from, then went through each of the sixty (yes, sixty) notable screenshots and hand-captioned them. The result is a terrifyingly in-depth analysis of the video that was released earlier this morning, an analysis that will probably reveal quite a few things to you about LittleBigPlanet 2 that you hadn't noticed before. We suggest beginning with the very first screenshot and moving in order, so that you absorb the information in the same order as it is shown in the video. In any case, enjoy!

Electronic artist Chris "Ochre" Leary confirmed a LittleBigPlanet sequel yesterday when he mistakenly tweeted that one of his tracks will be included in the new game. Although Sony attempted to kill the spread of the rumor by having Leary remove the tweet, the news spread like wildfire to various gaming sites (Kotaku included) before the damage control was in full effect.
According to IGN, the song rumored to be included in the new sequel is Infotain Me. It sounds like nothing that's been included in LittleBigPlanet thus far, but it still definitely seems like it would be a good fit for a LittleBigPlanet game.
Sony was likely planning to announce the sequel sometime this year, probably at or before E3, so keep your eyes out for new information about this over the coming months.

At this year's GDC, a special build of LittleBigPlanet was used to demo the recently announced Playstation Move. In the demo, two players were shown cooperating in order to traverse a level specifically designed for the new tech - one playing as Sackboy, and another using Move to shift around obstacles in order to aid Sackboy in completing the level.
From the looks of the video, I think it's safe to say that once the Move releases to the general public we'll be seeing some official version of this, probably in paid DLC form.
