Question about Sony Little Big Planet

1 Answer

Help, every time I try to play LBP, the game assumes I am playing with 3 or more controllers, when all I want to do is play a one player game. I have deleted game data, updated downloads, created new users, deleted game profiles, etc. But, when the game starts it keeps wanting controller 2 and 3 to sign in. What can I do?

    I only have a 2nd controller that I keep on a charger. As far as I can tell it is not turned on when the game starts, yet the game expects a 2nd and 3rd controller to join in. I have spent hours trying to troubleshoot this, have looked online for ideas and still no solution. I am ready to throw in the frustrated that all I want to do is play a simple game to relax from the kids for a while, but can't get it to work. I must be missing something obvious, but just don't see it.

Hello! The R1 and X button seem to not be working. I can usually start playing LBP and jump just fine, but I cannot grab. (Using R1) If I press the PS button, and click the LBP icon, then I can grab and...

soak or, spray the controller buttons with rubbing alcohol 90% then let them dry; that should fix it if not the carbon contactor on the inside of the rubber button is toast.

first of all make sure that they are playing LBP. and also make sure that they are not playing with 3 other people. you can only play with 3 other peple on LBP for total of 4 players. usually if you can play with people online with other games there is nothing wrong on your end. its just that they already might be playing with 3 other peple or he/she may be playing with someone that wont let you join into their game.

PS3 won't play games, but plays dvds.

You might want to buy a cleaning disk, I'm assuming that the child had got something on the game and it was loaded and now the lens is dirty. Try that first.

How do we access 2 player mode fifa 09 ps3

Make sure all controllers are connected to the console. If that isn't the problem go to quickplay or start new game or something along those lines and when it comes up make sure there are two controllers on that game menu

hopefully this works

Dual screen car solution dvd player with games

Considering the DVD player is inside of the unit, and the unit will not play a DVD (I am assuming you put in a DVD) while in DVD mode, the conclusion I would draw would be that the unit is defective and should be returned. To give details to this deduction: DVD Mode has power, just is not producing an image. --Known because it can play games.
