A new update for LittleBigPlanet is available to download and install. It weighs in at 13mb and, so far, there is only speculation as to what it contains – it’s certainly too early to be the Edam update which Media Molecule said was to appear mid February.
From my own perspective it has cured the failed to load player profile bug I have recently experienced on my system, however other planeteers report no such change.
The only cosmetic difference I could find was when you rate player levels: as you scroll up and down through 1 to 5 stars there is now a `tinkle` sound effect, rising in pitch with more stars and lower with less stars. Other players have reported that the Kratos costume is now listed in their LittleBigStore when it wasn’t previously – I can’t confirm this as it has always appeared in my own LittleBigStore. In addition the rewind function in create mode appears to work a lot smoother for me where as previously I experienced long pauses.
It would be a fairly safe bet to expect that 1.08 also installed forthcoming DLC content prior to it’s release – the Chinese New Year costumes are scheduled for release today Jan 26th

UPDATE: the free Chinese New Year costumes – celebrating the Year of the OX – are now available to download
UPDATE 2: Sam_Protagonist (SCE dev) has stated that the 1.08 update contains content only and is not the Edam update which is still going through the testing process
