Contraption Challenge 13: Submarine

We're starting fairly simple and asking you to make a contraption that can swim underwater. It doesn't have to look like a "typical" submarine; it could be a robotic shark, an underwater car, even a scuba diving rocket cheetah - as long as it swims underwater, the more creative it is the better! Here are the requirements: * Sackboy has to be able to enter and exit the contraption out of the water. * Sackboy must control it from within the driver's seat - no remote control. * It needs to be able to travel in all directions underwater. * It should behave differently when not underwater. This could simply just be making it float on the surface so that...

Own a piece of LittleBigPlanet history or buy your way into royalty

Own a piece of LittleBigPlanet history! Four of our five auctions are for framed original concept sketches, each with a signed copy of LittleBigPlanet 2… We have framed four pieces of artwork by Francis, the chief creator of Sackboy. They show some ideas for the development of our beloved hessian chum, and if we may be so bold, each one is a piece of gaming history. In the words of Indiana Jones, they belong in a museum! There are four of these pieces of artwork, each one is different, and as they are the originals, they unique. Each framed sketch comes with a very special copy of LittleBigPlanet comes with a special uber rare ‘Mm Special edition’ box art slip...

Announcing the LittleBigPlanet Wiki

This much needed Wiki has been a long time coming, and with a little help from the community, the team at Media Molecule, and eventually you as well, we're now delighted to open it up to the LittleBigPlanet Community, ready to welcome your contributions.

LittleBigPlanet 2 launch week fun – TV ad, new trailer, out now in UK & Ireland!

Launch Trailer First of all, we’ve got a new trailer to celebrate the launch of LittleBigPlanet 2 – it’s a tribute to the history of videogaming, told from Sackboy’s own unique perspective. All the levels shown in the trailer were also created by community members GruntosUK and jackofcourse . Advertising Campaign On top of that, I thought I’d give you all a look at the LBP 2 advertising campaign. Now, the LBP 2 Story mode is fantastic fun – as you’ve all hopefully spotted already from the numerous other trailers we’ve released. But for the launch of the game, we wanted to turn the spotlight on another hugely important part of the LittleBigPlanet universe – the community. With more than...

LittleBigPlanet Contraption Challenge 12

Your Exterminator could be anything! From a machine that chases Sackboy and destroys everything in its path, to an evil spaghetti-monster with multiple attack phases. Think of it as a boss or an enemy but without the need for Sackboy to fight back. The crazier and more original your idea, the better – but it should certainly inspire Sackboy to run like his little life depends on it. To take part in our challenge, just troop on over to the Official PlayStation EU Community forums . There, you can find all the instructions you need to enter the competition. The challenge is open now, so get to it! Oh, and Big news for Irish entrants! Courtesy of SCE Ireland, the...

New servers bring new features!

Cool Levels Cool Levels and Highest Rated now work slightly differently, and also need a little bit of time to settle down, so may look weird for a few days. The new servers allow us to tweak the way that Cool Levels works much faster than before, so we may play around with it a bit to get it working just the way we want it! MmPicks If you look under the new MmPicks Search category, you’ll find a selection of our favourite levels. The current selection has been taken from the Media Molecule blog, and we will be adding to it over time. Enjoy! Play Queues Queues are now active in LittleBigPlanet! When you find a cool level you...

LittleBigPlanet Central’s Creator Spotlight: Morgana25

*If you could list your favorite thing about LittleBigPlanet, what would it be?* My favorite thing about the game is that you have this wonderful set of tools to express yourself creatively. You can tell stories, make beautiful images or scenes, create characters and any number of other things that are uniquely you. I really love that it brings artsy, creative types and logical, engineering types together too. The mix of art and science doesn't happen enough in real life. Imagine what people could do if it did! *Aside from drawing inspiration from other creators and levels, is there anything in the world outside of LittleBigPlanet that inspires you?* Well my career as a graphic designer has influenced my work...
