LittleBigPlanet 2's LittlePlayStationMove Support

Posted by Nathan Michalik

What you get for your money

The long awaited sequel to the hugely popular LittleBigPlanet has finally been released, but the release of LittleBigPlanet 2 has sparked some confusion with its spiffy blue “Move Support” label. Currently, the only Move support LittleBigPlanet 2 currently offers is the ability to install Sackboy's Prehistoric Moves straight from the disc as a stand-alone game.

To install Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves, just select “Extras” from the Game menu on the XMB. From there you will have the ability to install the game to your hard drive as well as a few demos and game videos from other popular titles. It is worth noting that it is completely independent from LittleBigPlanet 2 and that the game's saves do not transfer collected items back and forth.

There is rumoured to be more Move content added to LBP2 in the future, but for now Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves will be the only Move adventures available out of the box. Dates and details of the updates are unknown, but keep an eye out here for details on when they are to be released and check out our Sackboy's Prehistoric Moves review.

As we've already reviewed Sackboy's Prehistoric Moves, we've taken the decision not to review LittleBigPlanet 2, unless it receives extra Move-enabled content in future. If and when that happens, we'll keep you posted.

Hmm... Glad I decided not to get move. I was thinking that they would have an alternate control scheme like on lots of Wii games, but ah well.

That sounds like a bit of a missed opportunity. I'm not sure about Move's usefulness on the story mode, but I sense that it could be put to great use in creation mode.

Hope MM addresses this soon with an update...

i'm starting to get disappointed about how move is not being considered in new games... this one could have been the first great platform title move compatible. An alternate control scheme like on lots of Wii games was an option.

It seems there isn't yet a great platform game with move controls.

But they were clear "Includes 10 bonus playstation move co-op levels": it's something outside the game.

Move worked great in Pre-historic!! Why not rest of game Sony?? That and no 3d support is what's keeping me from buying the game. Update please!!!!!

I was extremely disappointing with lack of Move support (specifically in create mode). Also seemed daft not to link the Prehistoric Move game with the main game... Either way, LBP2 is excellent so far and I still recommend it to anyone
