New video includes some clues
Pier we go
Media Molecule's borderline cringe working culture has culminated in the creation of a new satellite studio based in Brighton. The Guildford-based organisation has opened the new workspace in order to accommodate a group of devs who have been commuting from the seaside town for many years. While those on location will still make regular...
British dev turns ten-years-old
Sony's experimental outfit Media Molecule is celebrating its tenth anniversary today – which must be a significant landmark when your cut your teeth on out-there titles like Dreams. The studio's first slam dunk was LittleBigPlanet, of course, which won a slew of awards following its release in 2008 – and spawned...
The sooner that Media Molecule clears up exactly what Dreams is the better. During a stream earlier this week, the developer shared one of the first ever "dreams" created in the PlayStation 4 exclusive – and it's suitably bonkers. We see a polar bear and its baby walking towards the horizon, where the illuminati happen to be waiting...
Expect more details at Paris Games Week
There's still some confusion over what Dreams actually is. Media Molecule's brand new project was officially announced at E3 2015 and received a mixed response; the Guildford-based developer was intentionally vague about the title, and that's perhaps resulted in some scepticism around the web. However, it...
Dreams really do come true
In an E3 press conference packed with stellar announcements, Media Molecule's new PlayStation 4 title Dreams stood out as one of the most bizarre and exciting. The Guilford-based developer's latest project sees you using the Dualshock 4 to shape and mold any object you can imagine. You can then bring your masterpiece to...
New video includes some clues
We get spoon-fed quite a lot of information on a daily basis here at Push Square Towers, but the best part about the job is piecing together press releases, statements, and other tidbits in order to form an impression of the industry as it stands. One thing that we can't figure out, however, is what the heck Media...
"The silence is killing me"
Media Molecule's papery Vita port Tearaway Unfolded may be its only officially announced PlayStation 4 project, but it's been busy working on a second title ever since the release of LittleBigPlanet 2 some time ago. Despite the updated edition's imminent release date, though, Iota's escapade has always been the output of...
Media Molecule wasn’t messing around when it said that Tearaway Unfolded would be more than just an average PlayStation 4 port. Unlike other titles that have made the jump to Sony’s next-gen machine, this looks like a brand new game – as is evidenced by the wide shot of Maple Field at the start of this
Tearaway Unfolded is a bit of a strange, papery proposition. Presented during Sony’s big Gamescom 2014 press conference as a kind of adaptation for the PlayStation 4, it wasn’t entirely clear whether it will boast brand new content or the exact same puzzles and areas as its PlayStation Vita predecessor. Now, an IGN report straight...
Unwrap even more
We think that Tearaway is without a doubt one of the best reasons to go out and swipe up a PlayStation Vita. The visuals are truly unique and gorgeous, the gameplay pushes all of the handheld's features to the max, and the whole tone of the game just has an inescapably lovely charm. Now you can experience that with a...
Media Molecule’s been curiously quiet since the release of underrated PlayStation Vita exclusive Tearaway last year, but it has started to get a little more vocal over the past couple of weeks. Whether that signals some kind of impending GamesCom announcement remains to be seen, but even if the British studio does skip the...
The downright debilitating temperatures here in the UK are showing no signs of coming to an end – just like the current video game drought. Seemingly discontent with both the weather and the absolute dearth of industry news, Sony first-party Media Molecule has announced its latest innovation: Arctic Facebreeze. This is a real doozy,...
LittleBigPlanet 3's certainly made a lasting impression during Sony's E3 press conference with its sudden unveiling on the big screen. With three new friends joining Sackboy on his hand-crafted adventures, it's understandable that fans would be keen to get in on the gameplay. When given a chance to join the PlayStation 4 title's...
E3 is mere days away at this point, and judging by your comments, the hype train hasn't just left the station, it's been separated from the tracks and is currently jetting off into outer space. With that in mind, we regret to inform you that Media Molecule, the enormously talented studio behind LittleBigPlanet and Tearaway, will not...
It just clicked
Naughty Dog's PlayStation 3 swansong The Last of Us was a pretty impressive game, but you probably didn't need us to tell you that. The Californian developer's unique take on the survival horror genre has been collecting just about every award known to man, and that impressive list has just grown even longer, with the studio...
And the award for humblest game developer goes to...
If you've not been paying attention the last few weeks, Naughty Dog's masterpiece The Last of Us has managed to win just about every single award known to man. From the International Animated Film Society to GLAAD
You won't be able to tear yourself away from this one
It's no secret that the PlayStation Vita is struggling. A lack of exciting exclusives coupled with a seeming absence of consumer interest means that the sleek handheld is failing to shift units. However, Media Molecule's delightful adventure game Tearaway may be set to change all that. If the...
Whole world in your hands
Media Molecule's Rex Crowle and community manager Spaff opened up on the Eurogamer Expo developer sessions stage earlier today, where they walked a captivated audience through a live demo of the PlayStation Vita's premier papercraft title, Tearaway. The upbeat duo were eager to emphasise the concept behind the game, in...
Tons of papercraft animals, too
Ever since we wore plimsolls and Donkey Kong shirts with a smile (sorry, we didn’t know any better back then), we’ve promised ourselves that we’ll one day work in an office where there’s a ping-pong table. We haven’t quite realised that dream yet, but if we keep cranking out quality stories like this one,...
But what is it?
While we continue to chew over that strange sculpting demo that Media Molecule presented during February’s big PlayStation 4 unveiling, Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida has been offered a closer look. As part of his trip to the Develop Conference in Brighton this week, the developer got a chance to catch up
It's a mystery
The online sleuths have certainly been slipping. Media Molecule's website has included a teaser page hinting at its next project for over six months now, but it's only just been discovered. The mysterious entry certainly isn’t hard to find. If you mosey your way over to the developer’s ‘Games’ page, you’ll spot a rather...
Legendary game developer Peter Molyneux has pitched many preposterous ideas in his time, but even he was baffled by LittleBigPlanet. Chatting with EDGE magazine as part of a studio spotlight feature, Media Molecule’s Alex Evans has revealed that the Populous creator was one of the first people to sample the company’s customisable...
Pulling back the curtain
Unbelievably attractive PlayStation Vita exclusive Tearaway is not the only title in development at UK outfit Media Molecule. Indeed, the company's announced that a small team of 15 are working on the papercraft adventure while the rest of the studio focuses its attention on another unannounced project. Did someone say...
Dreams can come true
Anyone that’s contributed to LittleBigPlanet’s gigantic 7 million stage roster should give themselves a humongous pat on the back. Go on, get on with it – we’ll wait. Feeling all warm and fuzzy inside? Good, let’s continue. Media Molecule’s revealed on its official blog that the milestone was reached just as
The next big thing
LittleBigPlanet developer Media Molecule is staffing up for a new “AAA title". The UK-based studio has been alarmingly quiet ever since the release of LittleBigPlanet 2 last year, but it looks like the inventive team is starting to seriously consider the future. There’s some conflicting information amongst the multiple job...
One giant leap for burlap
Sackboy’s cross promotional potential continues to lavish us with awesome new downloadable outfits. The latest costume to hit the mascot’s ever expanding LittleBigPlanet 2 wardrobe comes courtesy of the recently released PS3 exclusive Starhawk. You’ll nab three new outfits as part of the minipack, each of which will...
On the road to freedom
Sackboy’s cross-marketing potential continues to lavish us with outstandingly adorable costumes this week, as new Escape Plan and Journey outfits are added to the animated hero’s LittleBigPlanet 2 wardrobe. If you pick up the Journey costume you’ll also score a themed sticker pack to go with it, allowing you to create...
Curiouser and curiouser
Sackboy’s wardrobe is soon to extend to quaint Victorian attire, as costumes based on Tim Burton’s 2010 Alice in Wonderland reboot make a very important date with LittleBigPlanet 2. The new DLC pack will include outfits for Alice, the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat and the Red Queen, allowing you to create a perfectly mad...
Sackboy's on the move too
If thatgamecompany’s epic Journey inspired you, then why not channel your creativity in LittleBigPlanet 2? Media Molecule’s announced a new Journey-inspired costume and sticker pack is headed to the Play Create Share platformer next month, allowing you to build your own emotional adventures. You can find out more about...
Best headline ever?
Who's better — Sackboy or Rowlf, the piano playing dog from The Muppets? Of course it's Rowlf. Don't believe us? Watch this video of Rowlf in the new Muppets DLC for LittleBigPlanet 2 and try again. The Muppets pack is out now on PlayStation Network for £4.79/€5.99.
It's always nice to have an excuse to return to LittleBigPlanet 2
The release of new Media Molecule produced content nearly always drives us back into the do-it-yourself platformer, and we're continually staggered by the community content we find upon our return. Sneakily announced overnight, Media Molecule's confirmed that the latest...
The world of LittleBigPlanet won't stop growing
Media Molecule's announced that the do-it-yourself game creation platform has now received its 6 millionth upload. That's a lot of levels. According to the Guildford-based developer, 2.5 million of those levels were created in the last year since LittleBigPlanet 2's release. Apparently, up to 40,000 levels are created every week. Even if you subscribe..
Media Molecule spent the best part of last year ploughing cash into new, innovative products, a report has revealed
In an annual director's report, uncovered by Develop, the company indicated that its main business risks came "largely as a result of the company's heavy reliance on the one LittleBigPlanet brand name". As such, the company spent big in 2011, ploughing a whopping £4.1..
And Move too
You can create almost anything in LittleBigPlanet 2: games, music and even bona fide art. Media Molecule recently held a competition to share the greatest Move artwork with the world, and it resulted in some stunners. The Move Masterpieces competition just ended with the winner, September Girl by natuhito, proudly displayed here. There...
Ubisoft and Media Molecule's teamed up to announce this ridiculously cute Ezio Auditore costume for LittleBigPlanet 2
The costume — which will be available from November 15th — has been produced in order to celebrate the release of the upcoming Assassin's Creed: Revelations. N'awwww.
Sackboy still wants your love
LittleBigPlanet 2 was released months ago, but Sony is keen to keep its clothy character in the forefront of gifters' minds this Christmas with a relaunch of the game in two new packs. First up is the LittleBigPlanet 2 Special Edition, which includes the game and $35 worth of additional content. Top of the list is the...
If you haven't played LittleBigPlanet 2 yet, what are you thinking? The Media Molecule developed do-it-yourself imagination engine is still sitting at the top of our game of the year shortlist, and it's going to take a mighty competitor to topple it
Seeing as we're forgiving folks, we'll let you off on not having played LittleBigPlanet 2, so long as you promise to rectify your misdemeanour before..
Inevitably Sony has announced an uber-cutesy Nathan Drake sackboy costume to celebrate the impending release of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
The costume will launch on the PlayStation Store next week, though Sony's yet to announce any prices. Awwww.
The fireworks still pop
You can still give your co-operative partner a big slap. But something's been missing from LittleBigPlanet 2's end-of-level experience for some time. The scoreboards have been offline. But according to a post on the LittleBigPlanet forums, the feature will return tomorrow. "As you know, for quite some time now the scoreboards for LittleBigPlanet have been offline. We..
We have the answers
Now that LittleBigPlanet 2 is fully Moved-up, there's been plenty of questions flying around about exactly what the Move Pack: Rise of the Cakeling adds to the standalone game and how necessary it is. XDev Studio Europe producer Neil McPhillips has taken to the PlayStation Blog to give some answers. The biggest and best news is...
LittleBigPlanet 2's long anticipated PlayStation Move expansion pack officially launches tomorrow with a host of new tools in addition to an entirely new story campaign
The campaign is named "Rise Of The Cakeling" and provides a full demonstration of the new tools included with the Move expansion pack. The DLC will retail for 7.99 in Europe when it launches tomorrow. There's a trailer..
The majority of LittleBigPlanet 2's new PlayStation Move features will not launch until next week -- but Media Molecule's gone live with a new patch (v1
06) that at least prepares for the platformer's new motion controlled features. The patch includes the integration of a variety of new sensors designed for motion control support. Don't get too...
You got a friend in me
Media Molecule's announced a batch of Toy Story content for LittleBigPlanet 2, set to go live on the PlayStation Store next week. The pack includes a level kit featuring nine new levels, a couple of new music tracks and a bunch of new materials, stickers and decorations. That will run you £4.79. A costume pack will also be available, featuring outfits for Buzz Lightyear,..
.. Wait no longer, as LittleBigPlanet 2 user Hymanator has made a pretty decent reinterpretation within Media Molecule's "create-your-own-game" toolset. It's even got the "Cat Mania" and "Fever" power-ups. The pace of the game is a little slow, but if you've been craving some Chu-Chu Rocket on your PlayStation 3, this is probably your best bet for now. It's not like..
You can see the origins of a free-to-play game in LittleBigPlanet
The accessibility of the PlayStation Store within the game makes the package ripe for freemium potential, and when you factor in DLC content packs for costumes, stickers and materials it's easy to see how the title could adapt to that business model. In fact: that was the original intention — at least from Sony's point-of-view..
More than 1
5 million new players have jumped into LittleBigPlanet 2 since the PlayStation Network outage earlier in the year. Media Molecule confirmed the figures as part of a panel at the Develop conference this morning. "I like that stat because it's growing," revealed Media Molecule co-founder Alex Evans. "LittleBigPlanet is not a stagnant community. There's multiple levels..
Media Molecule is moving on from LittleBigPlanet
While it will continue to support past releases, the British studio wants to put all of its future energy into creating something new. According to the studio, making this decision felt like a child leaving home. "It's a bit like, if you think of LBP as having a child, Sackboy was our child, you get to the stage where they want to leave..
The much anticipated Final Fantasy VII costume pack for LittleBigPlanet will launch on the PlayStation Store next week according to the PlayStation Blog
Costumes for Tifa, Sephiroth, Cloud and Aeris will be available for £1.59 / $1.99 each, or bundled together with an exclusive Vincent outfit for £4.79 / $5.99. Sony's also announced an inFamous 2 pack — featuring a good and evil Cole for £2.39..
This is a sweet story with a bitter after taste
British based developer Media Molecule has announced that it is considering taking a break from the LittleBigPlanet series in order to "focus on some new ideas". While this sounds like immediately wonderful news, it would be sad to see Sackboy sit quietly in the sidelines for a few years while Media Molecule works on its next big thing. That..
Media Molecule's finally blown the doors off LittleBigPlanet 2's PlayStation Move add-on, which was quietly getting a lot of buzz around publications attending this year's E3
The pack — which will include new trophies — is said to be Media Molecule's biggest DLC expansion yet, and as such doesn't have a firm release date as of yet. The studio's targeting an end of Summer launch though. New..
Official details inside
After the first LittleBigPlanet 2 Move details last week, the European PlayStation Blog has given up some of its virtual column inches to covering the upcoming DLC, shedding a little more light on the matter. Sony's current plan is to launch the pack at the very end of summer, which spells an August/September release, with...
What's in the box?
We know that LittleBigPlanet 2's PlayStation Move support is coming in September, but now we know a little more about what's set for inclusion in the update. Community member StevenI over at the LBP Central forums got chance to try an early version of the pack and helpfully listed the contents, including the 18 new levels,...
Stephen Fry's currently not on his annual hiatus from Twitter, and has announced on the social networking platform that he is off to do "some voicing for LittleBigPlanet" before lunch
This is important news that we felt compelled to share with you. So let the speculation begin — exactly which version of LittleBigPlanet is ol' Stephen Fry-Up working on? We suspect it's probably the PlayStation..
LittleBigPlanet for the PlayStation Vita makes so much sense it's crazy
In a way, it feels like Media Molecules Play Create Share title has found its natural home. Interacting with Sackboy's whimsical world looks perfectly natural, whether you're touching, swiping, tilting or poking the device. This is a killer-app for Vita right here.
Better late than never
We were all expecting LittleBigPlanet 2's PlayStation Move support to have arrived by now, but last night Sony took to the stage to announce the much-anticipated update will land in September. While the company revealed little of what the update will include, it did state the controller will be used to create and play levels...
Briefly mentioned during Sony's E3 press conference, LittleBigPlanet 2 will get its long awaited PlayStation Move update in September
SCE president Jack Tretton revealed that the functionality will allow creators to both build and play levels using Sony's motion controller. Expect more details on that soon.
Maybe those crazy Christian folks got their dates wrong and the rapture actually occurred over night, because we can't believe what we're seeing here
This cannot be real life. LittleBigPlanet 2 user Steve_Big_Guns (who's created some memorable levels in the past) has excelled himself with his latest creation. The 3D shooter, called M.E.R.D. (Massive...
Remember way back in the summer of 2008 when throngs of people wistfully exclaimed, "LittleBigPlanet will never work
" To those people, it sounded like a good experiment. But who wants to actually create? Turns out — a lot of people. Sony's just announced on the PlayStation Blog that there are now over four million LittleBigPlanet levels available. The post points out that if you gave each..
Media Molecule's getting involved with the industry's Play For Japan campaign, pledging an original piece of LittleBigPlanet artwork to the money-raising initiative
Four sketches are up for grabs, each depicting the evolution of Media Molecule's burlap mascot, Sackboy. As if the artwork wasn't enough, Media Molecule's also throwing in a signed copy of LittleBigPlanet 2 with an alternative cover..
DLC costumes out next week
PlayStation Move Heroes marks an auspicious event: the first time six Sony mascots have joined forces, but have you ever considered how much more powerful the unity would be if Sackboy were involved? You can stop wondering now, as Sony announces there'll be PlayStation Move Heroes costumes coming to LittleBigPlanet 2 next...
Still don't know when
We were all disappointed that Media Molecule's highly anticipated LittleBigPlanet 2 didn't feature more in the way of PlayStation Move support, save for the inclusion of standalone title Sackboy's Prehistoric Moves. Recently the topic has come up again, with rumours pointing to a PlayStation Move-enabled "Teacher's...
In a beefy post on the PlayStation Blog, Sony's dropped the upcoming roster of LittleBigPlanet 2 content players can expect over the coming month
Upcoming is a Killzone 3 mini-pack featuring Rico and a Hazmat trooper. That will be followed by a bunch of costumes based on upcoming mascot mash-up Move title, PlayStation Move Heroes. The costumes...
The last time Sackboy appeared on the PlayStation Portable, Sony's Cambridge Studio were put on development duties
But a bunch of eagle-eyed readers have let us know that Media Molecule are on the lookout for some new staff to help develop a new title for a "portable platform". Seeing as LittleBigPlanet has already popped up in numerous NGP show-reels well... Put two-and-two together:..
You may have heard of a little game called Plants vs
Zombies</a>. The tower-defence title's been a tremendous success on the iPhone and PC, and recently launched on the PlayStation Network. But there's no need to bother with that version, because this LittleBigPlanet 2 recreation, Plants vs. Zombots, is straight up spot-on.
Up for more stellar community content in LittleBigPlanet 2? You might want to queue up the brilliant community constructed "Hansel & Gretelbot" then, a new series of levels constructed by top LittleBigPlanet creators
There's a full campaign on offer, with voice acting, prizes and an original score. In addition to the release of Hansel & Gretelbot, Sony's released a new patch for..
Are you done with LittleBigPlanet 2's wonderful story mode? Craving more Sack-inspired narrative action? Then you're in luck, as Media Molecule's just announced the "Hansel & Gretelbot" project, a seven-level LittleBigPlanet 2 adventure created by 12 of the very best community creators
There's a trailer after the jump, and it looks incredible. There's easily enough polish for this to be a..
Ever fancied taking LittleBigPlanet everywhere you go -- on your feet? Then these limited-to-one modified Vans, sculpted by shoe-artists KyozoKicks, might be right up your alley
The colourful trainers are heavily inspired by Media Molecule's sticker-heavy PS3 platformer, and are available now from eBay. All of the proceeds from the auction are set to go to charity Child's Play, which is..
So Tulisa doesn't look as good in cloth, and Dappy's neck tattoos aren't as clear -- but N-Dubz's music video for "Took It All Away" is in fact absolutely amazing in LittleBigPlanet 2
The North London pop-group's promo video was created entirely in Media Molecule's game and is believed to be the first video game music video. The tune's a bit iffy, but the video is rad. Mainly because Sackboy is in..
We're always ready for more LittleBigPlanet 2 content
The game has more than 3.6 million levels already, but we'll always welcome a couple more. So we're excited to learn that LittleBigPlanet 2's upcoming PlayStation Move patch won't just include motion control integration, but new levels from the Media Molecule team too. The developer explained, The Move pack will contain some new story mode..
Not just a motion add-on
We don't know when LittleBigPlanet 2's Move update will find its way to our consoles, with Media Molecule only giving a vague "in a few months" release window, but at least we have a little more idea of what the pack will actually include. Just a little, though. In an open chat on Facebook, as reported by...
If you've got a spare five minutes this afternoon, you might want to try out Makotoi's faithful recreation of Peggle in LittleBigPlanet 2
Queue the level up through here. We played it earlier and it's pretty damn good.
It might take a few seconds for you to realise what's going on in this delightful LittleBigPlanet clip, but once it clicks it may just blow your mind
We all know LittleBigPlanet's brilliant on PlayStation 3, but what if it was made of real cardboard sets and Sackboy plushies? The answer is embedded above.
Let's all pause for a quick cheer: hoo-ray
Chart-Track's just revealed that LittleBigPlanet 2's rightfully topped the British software sales charts, knocking Call Of Duty: Black Ops from its perch. Big congratulations to the guys over at Media Molecule. It's a stunning game and it deserves every success. LittleBigPlanet 2 was only one half of a big week for PlayStation 3 though. Bioware's..
LittleBigPlanet 2's only been officially out for around 24 hours here in the UK, and little more than a few days in the US, but it's already managed to smash the original game's player records
Studio co-founder David Smith told Eurogamer, "The user count is actually quite crazy - we've already massively outstripped our LBP1 record for total users online at once. And that's just with North..
SCEE's posted up the LittleBigPlanet 2 television advert over on the PlayStation Blog
The ad was created in conjunction with a number of high profile LittleBigPlanet level designers, and the results are kinda amazing. The coolest thing is that each of the levels are available to play now in the game. Our favourite is the Mediterranean Street Race, a super clever level which is a mix of Outrun and..
Expect it in months, not weeks
So LittleBigPlanet 2's Move support is just a free install of PlayStation Network title Sackboy's Prehistoric Moves, but Media Molecule has confirmed it is working on other Move content for the title to be available later this year. The company will release a Play, Create, Share pack later this year adding plenty more...
LittleBigPlanet 2 doesn't support PlayStation Move out of the box, but Media Molecule's studio director, Siobhan Reddy, has told IGN that a "Play, Create, Share" pack for Sony's motion device is in the works and will be ready soon
Apparently the pack will be "announced in a little while". Well, the exciting thing to do with Move is, were working on a play-create-share pack, she..
Media Molecule are probably quirkiest development studio in video games, so we found this short Youtube tour (embedded after the jump) of their office most intriguing
It's pretty much as we expected to be honest — there's a "pet wall" and lots of whacky light shades. Oh, and there's a table-tennis set-up too. Every office needs one, right?
What you get for your money
The long awaited sequel to the hugely popular LittleBigPlanet has finally been released, but the release of LittleBigPlanet 2 has sparked some confusion with its spiffy blue “Move Support” label. Currently, the only Move support LittleBigPlanet 2 currently offers is the ability to install Sackboy's Prehistoric Moves...
LittleBigPlanet 2 is crazy
Like, really crazy. It's so crazy, one of its level editing tools is practically a simplified digital audio workstation. That's bonkers. In fact, LBP2's audio sequencer was originally being considered as a stand-alone game. Ker-ray-zee. According to Media Molecule's audio lead Kenny Young, Sony pushed the developer to create a music game when they saw an early version of..
The LittleBigWorldRecord is up and running
To celebrate the release of LittleBigPlanet 2 this week, Sony's aiming to smash a number of Guiness World Records. The event's taking place at the Sony Style store in New York City, with goodies promised for the first 500 people who show up tomorrow morning and buy the game. There's a bunch more information about the World Record attempt through here..
Man, this has really crept up on us: LittleBigPlanet 2 is out tomorrow in the US
That's crazy. It feels like we've been waiting forever but here it is. Finally. Even if you're in Europe, you've only got a few extra days to wait. There's nothing more we can really say. If you're human, you'll be pumped. Sit back, listen to the sub-bass, and check out Sackboy in the latest trailer embedded..
Sony's marketing message for LittleBigPlanet 2 seems to rotates around the idea that the game can never be completed
The latest Kevin Butler spot hammers home the user creation aspect and features plenty of gameplay. The game's due out next week worldwide. Sony intends to celebrate the launch in North America by smashing a sequence of world records. <object id="viddler"..
Reinforcing the belief that LittleBigPlanet is the perfect marketing tool, Sony's announced that LBP2 will play home to some Toyota branded content
The free sponsored content will launch alongside Sackboy's latest game, and will include an XMB theme and a Prius level. The level will include a bunch of prize bubbles allowing you to build your own...
It's Monday morning
The weather outside is gloomy and grey. But at least there's a new LittleBigPlanet 2 trailer to enjoy. Sackboy's back with his legion of Sackbots, just in time to save the world from the evil "Negativitron". Media Molecule's turning the whimsy to the max this time, with voice actors and all manner of cutesy characters. The trailer's after the jump, courtesy of our..
What a staggering first-party line-up Sony has planned this year
Seriously, even with our fanboy hats taken firmly from our head, we'd be fools to not acknowledge the strength of Sony's exclusive PlayStation 3 software offering this year. When you can follow-up an astounding trailer like the one Guerrilla's just released for Killzone 3 with an equally good set of footage for LittleBigPlanet 2,..
Four weeks to go
With a fresh demo for LittleBigPlanet 2 having just hit the PlayStation Store, Sony has a double whammy of good news in the form of confirmed release dates for North America, Europe and Australasia. Ready? North America: Tuesday 18th January 2011Mainland Europe: Wednesday 19th January 2011Australia and New Zealand: Thursday 20th...
It's like there's one blockbuster PlayStation 3 title per week. The latest in a long-line of killer PlayStation content is LittleBigPlanet 2, which finally has a European release. The game's gone gold (and you can watch Media Molecule celebrate with Spandau Ballet through here) meaning final code is being sent to magical Blu-ray manufacturing plants as we speak. But the big release date,..
Capcom is cool and all</a>, but your Grandad doesn't know how to play that. LittleBigPlanet 2 is a family game after all. Maybe he knows how to play pool instead? Good job Media Molecule's thought of everything. Check out a bunch of LBP2's sports mini-games in the trailer above. In other related news, LBP2 scored a 10/10 in this month's Official PlayStation Magazine. Surprise.
We can probably all agree that Marvel vs
Capcom would be better with a dash of Kratos and Cole McGrath. These insane LittleBigPlanet 2 creators have crafted just that, creating a fully fledged beat 'em up within the confines of the upcoming Play Create Share title's beta. The game has proper special moves and everything. It's all a bit bonkers to be honest.
VP of Characterisation
LittleBigPlanet 2 promises to make all your gaming fantasies come true, and while it may not be quite powerful enough to let us create Shenmue 3 this advert proves it can do plenty more than its predecessor. Considering the wealth of costumes on the way to Media Molecule's next create 'em up, only a fool would doubt the...
Sure it looks choppy and, honestly, a little bit crap, but it's worth remembering that LittleBigPlanet 2 has not even come out yet, and already people are pulling off wild stuff like re-creating Wolfenstein 3D within it
We've absolutely zero idea how the creator even got this to work to be honest. It's insane.
Gotta laugh at all those people throwing around the words "useless", "pointless" and "crap" when PlayStation Plus was announced. We're some of the most hardcore PlayStation Network users out there, and Plus has already lavished us in a ridiculous array of goodies. Today we're set to get a few more. SCEE's revealed...
If you've not been able to participate in the LittleBigPlanet 2 beta, do not despair: you'll get your chance to play it soon, with a free demo available across North America on December 21st and December 22nd in Europe. In Sony's own words, here's what you can expect from the bite-sized piece of Sackboy: This demo will give everyone...
In a super-cute update on the American-arm of the PlayStation Blog, SCEA's released a check-list of tasks to complete as LittleBigPlanet 2's launch date nears
The box-art and ESRB rating? Totally done. The online servers? They're still being tested, and SCEA promises that more beta invites are going out this month. Check your PSN email address to see if you've snagged a code. What else is there? Oh..
A taster of LittleBigPlanet's Move mode
Here's something we didn't see coming: Sackboy is about to get his own PSN-exclusive title, called Sackboy's Prehistoric Moves, and it's only playable with Move. A co-operative-only experience, the game needs one player with a Move controller and another with a DualShock 3, as players must team up to overcome...
