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

Even if you subscribe..

Being British we still don't quite understand the fascination with Black Friday
As far as we can understand, the day is designed to encourage North American shoppers to get out of bed early, queue outside their local stores, and spend lots of money on ridiculously under-priced items. We might not fully understand it, but we're totally jealous of it...
Ubisoft and Media Molecule's teamed up to announce this ridiculously cute Ezio Auditore costume for LittleBigPlanet 2

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..
LittleBigPlanet 2's been named among the nominations for the Children's BAFTAs

Earlier in the week Deep Silver announced a PlayStation Move enabled sports mini-game compilation called Winter Stars
The news was met with little fanfare, but I couldn't help but feel a flutter of anticipation. Thing is, I adore games packed with variety. I love the idea of being able to play around with different mechanics, jumping from one...

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.

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..

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...
Optimism: according to various reports, internal testers are currently playing various PlayStation Network games online

Remember way back in the summer of 2008 when throngs of people wistfully exclaimed, "LittleBigPlanet will never work

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.
Capcom 3's</a> missed out on a place aloft the UK sales charts, thanks to a 192 percent increase in sales for Call Of Duty: Black Ops. The surge saw Activision's shooter jump straight to the top, with Capcom's tag-team brawler claiming a respectable second place finish. Elsewhere, last week's winner, Test Drive Unlimited 2, held fairly strong, finishing up in fourth, while Dead..

One things for sure, whether we "get" dancing games or not -- they just aren't going away
Of the ten top selling games in North America last month, four of them were dancing games. Four. Just Dance 2, Zumba Fitness: Join The Party, Dance Central and Michael Jackson: The Experience. What the heck is going on? We understand the room for one dance game in the charts, but four? And they say the shooter..

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..
There's a lot of movers and shakers in this week's UK sales charts, but nothing really of notable discussion
Dead Space 2's continued its reign aloft the UK sales charts for a second consecutive week, beating out the usual convoy of FIFA 11, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and Call Of Duty: Black Ops. Media Molecule's LittleBigPlanet 2 has kept its head in the top ten, finishing up in fifth position..

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.
Unsurprisingly Dead Space 2 has topped the UK sales charts this week, destroying the numbers of its predecessor by a good 70 percent
And people wonder why publishers release sequels rather than new IP. Speaking of which, Media Molecule's LittleBigPlanet 2 continued its dally with the top of the charts, finishing this week in a respectable second position (and top of the PlayStation 3-only charts)..
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.

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.
