" 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 stage 5 minutes of your time, and played 12 hours a day, it would take you a whopping 78 years to get through the game's content.
"For us the most exciting thing has always been seeing what the community does with a LittleBigPlanet game when they get their hands on the new features and tools," said developer Media Molecule.
"We're constantly delighted and amazed by their ingenuity and creativity, and it's so inspiring to see the level of affection that exists for LittleBigPlanet amongst fans around the world."
Oh, and before you start with that "all the levels are rubbish" nonsense, just think: if only 1 percent of the 4 million levels are good, that's still 40,000 worthwhile levels.
