I have completed 5 levels of Little Big Planet 2, but I can't seem to access any items on the pod menu except story. I also cannot accept any invitations from friends. Is there something I need to complete to be able to play multiplayer?

I'm not sure what the value is for Little Big planet 2 but in the first game you had to finish a certain number of single player levels to unlock online play.

I think this is basically to make sure everyone playing is at a reasonable standard when they start playing with other players so that games flow better rather than waiting for a player who doesn't understand how to get past a certain obstacle.

This is not the case in Little Big Planet 2. I could play online from the initial load up. – Corv1nus Jan 27 '11 at 15:16
@Corv1nus Thanks for letting me know. – Fishcake Jan 27 '11 at 15:29
Corv1nus, did you have a LBP1 save? I think those with the first game had access to community from the start. As I found out last night after playing a couple of levels, Fishcake is right. – TeeOh Jan 28 '11 at 3:43
