LittleBigPlanet 2 is out this week!

"With this sequel, Media Molecule gives players a bottomless toybox, and I can't remember the last time a game had such a relentless grip on my imagination." - Game Informer 9.5/10 "LBP2 represents a dazzling new opportunity for creating deep, diverse and ingenious play" - Edge 9/10 "This isn't just a superbly presented game that incorporates multiple genres and comes packaged with a powerful creation suite, it's your doorway into a wonderfully charming, vibrant, and ever-changing universe where almost anything is possible.

Announcing Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves!

You are on a mission to take on challenges engineered by Terrance Dactyl – and you’re going to need help. So put on your bear skins and grab up to four mates to navigate the tricky terrain of tropical jungle and erupting volcanoes – the player with the PlayStation Move controller leads the way, flicking switches and triggering platforms to help the others, using DualShock Controllers, through each level.

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...

From YellowHead to Sackboy

“He had a lot of personality, even then” reflects Kareem, as he, Francis and I glance at some concept artwork and look back to the early days of the now iconic character’s origins. “I think it was the cheekiness. Dave always does that, pays attention to personality and very subtle things. When YellowHead was pulling the big old rock, the character looked like he was straining, even though there was no supporting animation… his little debug arms stretching as he pulled.” YellowHead was very much placeholder programmer art created by Dave for the first playable CraftWorld code which was taken up to Sony on that fateful day of the pitch. But although he was merely a stand in, he ended...

New LittleBigPlanet 2 “Featurette” - The Creatinator!

The Creatinator is a handy new power-up that lets you launch all kinds of useful objects - from water to fight fires to supercharged rockets. And that's just for starters - once you start tinkering in Create mode, the possibilities really open up. Just imagine a gadget that lets you launch streams of giant flaming cows to demolish walls - I'm sure that's something lots of you have been waiting to see for a long time...

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 2 Adventure Trailer

But LittleBigPlanet 2 isn’t just about creating – first and foremost, it’s about fun in all its forms. So aside from all of those creative tools, there’s a whole meaty Story Mode to explore. It’s an epic adventure through time and space, featuring awesome gameplay types, cool new power-ups, and a quirky cast of new characters. And on top of all of that, up to four players can get involved for maximum multiplayer merriment (thanks, Mr Thesaurus). So, take a peek at all of this by checking out the new ‘Adventure’ Trailer… There’s going to be lots more LittleBigPlanet news to come over the next few weeks (especially once GamesCom gets started). But I’ll be down there in the comments...

LittleBigStore: More Animals!

In addition to the existing herd of creatures Sackboy can already transform into, pretty soon he'll be able to take the form of a Hippo, Turtle, Fly or Peacock. It's looking decidedly like Hugo will soon have some company in the LittleBigPlanet jungle, and the way we're heading we'll be able to open our own wildlife reserve before too long! Take a walk on the wild side as the More Animals pack hits the LittleBigStore next week . Aww aren't they cute? If you can class a fly as cute anyway.
