LBP3 1.17 Update Released with Marvel Mega Pack Sale Occurring!

Time for another patch to round out 2015! Game Update 1.17 went live for LittleBigPlanet 3 on Thursday, December 17th, and makes a number of changes that are noted below (quoting StevenI from his post on the PlayStation Blog). You can discuss the patch over on the forums here (thanks for setting up a thread on v1.17, Sakura). Aside from the new fixes and improvements to LBP3, it has also been announced that all Marvel-themed DLC for the game has been compiled together into the Marvel Mega Pack, selling for £4.99/€5.99, or for those in the U.S., $40.99 regularly and $14.35 if you have a PS+ subscription.

If you still want to grab some Marvel-based DLC in LittleBigPlanet, then you’ll want to make sure not to dilly dally, as the “Super Sale” ends on December 31st, when all Marvel DLC will be removed from the PlayStation Store (with no expectation for them to return, judging by the Marvel Mega Pack’s DLC page)


Update Notes 1.17

Online Improvements

  • Fixed an issue with Community Adventures that would cause considerable lag and potential stalling when browsing the Community menu.
  • Players can no longer publish LittleBigPlanet 3 levels over LittleBigPlanet or LittleBigPlanet 2 levels; this prevented players from receiving messages about being unable to publish when attempting to do this and players will now instead be informed that this specific action is the reason they cannot publish.

General Stability

    • Hmm, not sure I’m afraid. I’d hope so though! Definitely wouldn’t unlock the Marvel Level Kit for Vita though since I know they did something different with that for the PSVita version of the game.
