Today LittleBigPlanet PSP celebrates its first birthday!

So, where are we a year after the game's release? Well, the Community Moon now contains over 130,000 community levels, with well over 1,500 published every week, some of which are of truly exceptional quality. The LBP PSP community is thriving, with strong communication and support between creators; we're on our seventh community competition, with creators running each one very professionally, as well as coming up with cool ideas for themes; and collaborations like the mighty 'Kindred' and the '12 Days of Christmas' have taken us by surprise with their remarkable dedication and organisation. A community this passionate is something very special indeed, and the SCE Cambridge Studio greatly appreciates all the amazing talent and energy that the community creators...

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...

LBPC PSP Creator Spotlight - Jeffcu28

Jeffcu28 Art can take many forms. It can be a beautiful painting, a thought-provoking sculpture, or a moving composition of music. It's not often one thinks of video games when the word "art" is brought up, even less so when it comes to handheld games. Enter Jeffcu28 : Calm, collected, well-spoken, and absolutely determined to change the world's mind about what form an artist's canvas might take. Since the release of LittleBigPlanet PSP in November 2009, Jeffcu28 has treated us to some of the most incredible and varied levels we could possibly imagine. We've bounded across giant flowers, watched a level being painted right before our little button eyes, and experienced the vengeful sadness of a love story gone terribly...

Kindred - A PSP Community Project

AceCreator , the official Sack Spokesperson for LBP PSP delivered this message about kindred he wished to pass along to you all... We can honestly say that we didn't see this coming; 'a collaborative project that introduces a brand new story level series to the PSP community.' Fantastic! Well, a project of this kind of scope and ambition deserves recognition, and is to be applauded. The very professional publicity image had already caught our eye here at Cambridge (nice work, dajdaj03), so we were intrigued, along with everyone else. That's quite a team you guys have assembled there: amazingflyingpoo , Arrestor/ Maboe84 , BlueBulletBill , CyberSora , Domick12 , Fastbro , jeffcu28 , Lleonard Pler/ Lleonard , salieri/ SalieriAAX ,...
