Selected Updates from LittleBigPlanet Developers

This is a collection of official updates about the LittleBigPlanet servers selected by LBP Union staff.

Twitter Updates

These are official updates from the developers of LittleBigPlanet. 

The LittleBigPlanet Server Status Dashboard is your daily reference for news and updates about the LBP servers. If you are receiving an error code 403 in LittleBigPlanet, it may be a good idea to check this page to see if the servers are down. You can also see news and updates about when the servers may be returning here as well if that information is available.  

Why Are the Servers Down?

The LittleBigPlanet servers could be down for any number of reasons. Recently, the LBP PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 servers have been periodically down for maintenance since early March. This results in the message, "a problem occurred when attempting to connect to the LittleBigPlanet servers 403".

How Can We Tell If The Servers Are Online? 

The LittleBigPlanet server status can be determined by using HTTP return codes. We attempt to connect to the server and the server will respond with a special code. That code, if it comes back at all, will give us information about whether or not the server is online.

A very short period, such as less than one minute, is not enough to tell that the server is online. Sustained uptime for several minutes is the bare minimum, while a longer period of time is ideal. 

 

What Are The Different Return Codes? 

 

 There are several return codes that we can use to infer the LittleBigPlanet Server Status. Some common ones are, 

 

  • 404: the server responded, but it told us that the webpage was not found. This is normal and means that the servers are probably operating! 

  • 503: the server we tried to reach was unavailable. This usually means that it's down for maintenance or is overloaded with traffic. 

  • Timeout: This means that we were unable to reach the server or website. 

  • 403 (Forbidden): This means that the server refused access entirely. You may see this when trying to login to LBP on your PlayStation console. 

What is an Image CDN?

The image CDN is a database of uploaded photos, level badges, and sticker textures from the game. It is what the game pulls from to load images to LBP.me and in-game. There is an image CDN for both the main series games and LBP Vita, however we are currently only able to monitor the main series image CDN.

An Image CDN being online does not mean that the game servers are online. The image CDN is independent of the game servers. 

How Was the Server Checking Tool Created?

The tool above is currently manually updated, but we intend on bringing back automatic updates as soon as possible. Our Discord server uses a bot called Agent Washington.
