Well, looks like the LBP team just took a small break. DLC will resume on a weekly basis at the end of the month, starting January 22nd. "Big surprises" are in store for fans of the game. Will they be surprises on the scale of the MGS4 pack?
In addition, Media Molecule is working hard on a new patch that fixes some of the glitches found in version 1.07 of the game. Will they fix the save data issue? Hopefully!
