    Default Santa Costume not available for LBP Karting PS3

    Basically, the Santa outfit doesn't appear in LBP Karting.

    I tried re-downloading the costume parts, but they're marked as "Unavailable" in the AU and UK PSN Stores. It tells me I can't get them because I already own the content ( I grabbed them back in 2008 ).

    I believe the problem is there's no 100kb file available for the PS3 version of LBP Karting.

    For all of the "older" LBP costumes, you get 3 files...

    PS3 file for Little Big Planet 1/2 (1066kb)
    Vita file for Little Big Planet Karting (100kb)
    PS3 file for Little Big Planet Karting (100Kb) *** that one isn't available for the Santa parts ***

    I created an alternate PSN ID, accessed the store where the items were marked "FREE" not "Unavailable", and re-purchased them, but it only gave me the following files...

    Little Big Planet - Santa Hat and Beard Costume (PS3) 1Mb
    Little Big Planet Karting - Santa Hat and Beard Costume (PS Vita) 100kb
    Little Big Planet - Santa Coat and Boots Costume (PS3) 1Mb
    Little Big Planet Karting - Santa Coat and Boots Costume (PS Vita) 100kb

    The PSN Store does show two other files...

    Little Big Planet Karting - Santa Hat and Beard Costume (PS3)
    Little Big Planet Karting - Santa Coat and Boots Costume (PS3)

    but as said, they're marked "Unavailable" and don't appear anywhere in my download list, whereas even the PS Vita versions for LBP Karting are in my download list.

    I hope I don't have to wait yet another year for this to be fixed. I really wanna play as Santa in LBP Karting on the PS3!

    Oh yeah, I should probably mention the Costume works fine in LBP 1 and 2. Even the LPB Karting in-game store doesn't show the Santa parts, so there doesn't seem to be any way to download/get them.

    What did is go to the LBP2 add on catalog and download them there. For me said the as you stated above but it still shows up in LBPK.

    I checked under LBP2 / Add-Ons in the store, and they're marked "Unavailable" as well.

    I originally downloaded the costume parts in 2008, and re-downloaded them last year, but the only two extra files it gave me were for the PS Vita version of LBP Karting. There are actually 2 files for the PS3 version of LBP Karting (or should be... as they are shown in the PSN Store currently if you look through Latest Add-ons), but it won't allow me to download them, they're marked as "Unavailable" and the reason it tells me is because I already own the costume... and yet it doesn't appear in LBP Karting anywhere (PS3 version).

    Basically, I can't get hold of the 2 files LBP Karting needs on the PS3.

    Even if I go under LBP Karting / Add-Ons in the PSN Store and sort by newest, the two files I need are "Unavailable" to me.

    Is there a contact number or email address that I can use to help get this sorted out?

    NOTE: This only seems to be a problem in PAL regions (Australia/Europe/UK). In the US PSN Store, it gives me all 6 files needed. PAL regions are missing...

    Thanks Pookachoo. I noticed they've got the same post on the EU Blog... http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2013/...coming-to-lbp/

    Here's hoping they notice my post on there.

    Even tried it on a different PS3 with different Australian account. The Latest Add-Ons show four Santa Costume items for the PS3, and it gives me the 2 for Little Big Planet, but for some strange reason also gives me the 2 for LBP Karting on the PS Vita. Yep, still gives me the PS Vita version instead of the PS3 version that it's meant to. And, of course they then get marked "Unavailable". I would have thought the status would/should change to "Purchased" but it doesn't. Clearly there's a problem somewhere.
