Pre-Order LBP At GameStop, Get Kratos SackBoy Costume
Remember that sweet little Kratos SackBoy? It's one of the promotional pieces of virtual merchandise SCEA has planned for the LittleBigPlanet launch in October, and at the time, we were wondering which retailers would be embracing which extras.
Well, GameStop now has pre-order information, and that's where you need to go if you want that Kratos costume for the game's adorable and versatile main character. This isn't an actual SackBoy doll; it's an in-game bonus you will receive by using the downloadable voucher code you get from GameStop. The costume itself has four individual components - a Kratos skin, goatee, clothing, and of course, those deadly Blades of Athena - which can be mixed and match any way you see fit. However, if this doesn't interest you, perhaps you'd like to pre-order from Amazon instead; they're offering a Brady Games strategy guide, which was described at the official PlayStation blog as "a primer for LittleBigPlanet's CREATE tools and provides users with a quick tutorial to begin developing their own levels."
As for the rest of the stuff, like the LittleBigStickerBook or that Nariko costume, we have no details as of yet. They may not come via per-order campaigns from retailers; we'll have to keep an eye on what transpires. LittleBigPlanet mania is already starting!
