Are Sony kidding?
Aus$8.45 for the LBP2 week one T-Shirt.
That's around the same price as most LBP1 multi costume packs, and I should know I've bought them all.
What a rip-off.
Don't think it's just Aus/NZ getting ripped off either, it's US$5 and around the same in Euros.
Is this a new pricing structure for LBP2 DLC?
I damn well hope not because it sucks big time!

I think a few LBP1 costumes that went MIA over the years might make a reappearance for LBP2.
Some of the costumes in LBP2 are Dynamic, as in they change, which is what I think this one does, somebody has already found a usable glitch with these sort of costumes, I'll post more about it when I know the details.

It's a pity that you are still limited to 200 costumes, as with just the basic standard ones made up from LBP1 prize bubbles and Acing of levels + All the DLC ones, and maybe around ten I've mashed together [Mutant Ninja Turtle Sack anybody great for dressing up Sackbots ] = 170.
Add the 10 I'll get from the LBP2CE package, makes me think I'm in a spot of bother when I start playing the game.
Pity I'm going to have to keep a lot of the new costumes as individual items, instead of a made up costume, as you can name and group costumes a lot better in LBP2.

I just read that as well, not sure how true it is, sucks if it is.
You could always download it now [same with week one T-shirt] even if you don't have LBP2 yet, and then it will be in your download history for you to re-download later, even if it is removed from the store.
I had to re-download all my costumes when my PS3 died [what a chore] and the original spacesuit had been removed from the store, but because it was in my download history I was able to get it again.
Phew! Just got my confirmation from JB my copy of LBP2CE is on it's way.
Next time I'll order it to be picked up in store, I'm surrounded by 4 JB's.
It wasn't until yesterday evret told me JB no long sends out pre orders until release day, if only I knew when I ordered it.

They did this with the first LBP though... there were ultra premium costumes available for only about 7 days, and for $9...
Myself.. I've made my thoughts known in the past over these LBP/Need for Speed/HOME style money making schemes... I'll pay for levels/maps/useable content, but very rarely will I pay for facelifts.. I have bought the occasional costume in LBP for instance..
