Sackboy available in SingStar, more ventures coming soon

Mar 1st 2009 - 5:06 PM

Sony have for some time now been making the most of LittleBigPlanet as the ideal outlet for cross-promoting the leading games of PlayStation 3. Metal Gear Solid, Street Fighter, Loco Roco, Wipeout, God of War, Heavenly Sword - just a handful of the big names which have come to LBP through costumes, levels and ‘create’ DLC.

But it works both ways, and Sackboy is starting to find his way in to other games. A Little Big Planet PlayStation Home space is already in the works, Sackboy PSN avatars are coming soon and don’t forget that last December it was rumoured that Sackboy will be coming to Hot Shots / Everybody’s Golf 5.

The most recent appearance of Sackboy’s friendly face is in SingStar (yes, we play SingStar and love it very much). It’s been live for some weeks now, but you can buy a Little Big Planet wallpaper from the SingStore (99p in the UK).
The wallpaper theme allows you to play SingStar with Little Big Planet background music, an animated background of various stickers moving in and out, plus of course: Sackboy’s smiling face…

It’s a bit pricey and of course, it’s a cash in for Sony on the brand that they’ve built up for Little Big Planet, but it’s a bit of fun too. Check it out in the SingStore wallpapers section, it’s called “Little Big Wallpaper”.

Keep your eyes peeled for Little Big Planet and Sackboy appearing in yet more games as time goes by.

@ docterstrange
It just might work!

P.S. are you really docter strange? Sorcerer supreme?

Sackboy was supposed to show up in PAIN, too. Wasn’t he? I recall having read something about it back when the game was released.

Anchor

Yeah, I’m pretty sure Sackboy was going to show up in PAIN. Still no word on that, though…

Anchor

I hope that sackboy doesn’t come to PAIN. I’ll be tempted to play as him and i really don’t want to hur sackboy. Anyone who want’s to kill sackboy, will die by my sack slap!!

Anchor

Rofl. Id like a Sackboy MGS4 FaceCamo.I would LMAO!!!!!!!! And an octocamo LBP material would be pretty sweet too…

Anchor

also one thing i forgot to add is that after you install the new patch 1.10 go to the littlebigstore and where the kabuki,sack eater and tv costumes are youll see another one and it isnt the bumblebee more like a ancient monkey or something its really cool(but when i went to click on the pack the monkey wasnt up for sell for me yet sooo i dont know if mm just put it there for a hint or some other reason still really cool)
