Yes sir, picked my copy up today. The servers aren't up yet, it should be a week before that even happens. It's an awesome game, very impressed so far.

Any of you bros know how to get the Pre-Order DLC? I downloaded the code on the inside, but it said online pass, and so far, I don't have any of the characters.

Cool, I'll probably go pick it up now.

Any DLC stuff will become unlocked on Tuesday when they start up the online servers. That online pass code is good for the pre-order DLC so it should just show up once you are able to log in on Tuesday.

Yeah, Sony lifted the release date a few days ago.

So I can just walk into my local Gamestop and grab a copy no problem?

For those in Maine or New Hampshire they are also selling it at Bullmoose Music. Preorder bonuses included!!

@robcat09: Thank you. I can't wait for the servers to be up.

Wow, didn't realize it went out early.  I just put a hold request in for my local GameStop, hopefully they have it.

A little off topic, but to those who have played it. Is it pretty much a LBP game with floaty jumps and all?

They didn't change what LBP is at its core. If you didn't like the original, this probably won't convert you.

'Floaty jumps' is what makes the game what it is, so if that's a negative for you, definitely stay away.

I have played the two PS3 games, as well as the PSP one, and now that I have finished the main story of the Vita game I feel that it has the best 'campaign' out of all of them. I am very excited to see what the community comes up with once that gets going. I always feel like spending $40 on a game like this is very well justified because I know there will be new, free content to explore every time I boot it up!

Thanks for taking the time to answer. I love the premise and level design of LBP but it never felt great to me. I figured it was as much and that I should probably pass (I've fallen off too many platforms and felt like i had no control in lbp 1) but thanks for the confirmation. I do hope it does well because a victory for the vita is a victory for us all.

I absolutely agree, the campaign is the best of the series. This is one of the greatest handheld games I've ever played.

This seems to be available on the vita store in Australia - although only as one of the larger icons at the top and not updated in the lists.

At the moment it has 2 out of 5 stars out of 250 user reviews and it's frightening me off.

Does anyone know what the hell that's about?

Yep. Sony fucked up their digital release so those of us who bought it early (in Europe and Australia) got a copy that didn't work. The playstation blog seems to indicate that they've fixed it now. There were a lot of angry people complaining about it so I guess they one and two star'ed it since every other review I've read (including videos from both gamer sites and private persons on youtube) awarded it with top rates.
