Score: 9.5/10

Platform: PS3

Developer: Media Molecule

LittleBigPlanet 2 is a sequel to LittleBigPlanet which originally released in 2008. LittleBigPlanet was a game which came under the “Platformer” category, but LittleBigPlanet only loosely fits that description. It’s a game which belongs to no particular genre. LittleBigPlanet 2 ( & 1 ) were developed by England-based developer Media Molecule and was released on January 18, 2010 exclusively for the PS3 in North America.



You even have cutely adorable "Sackbots"!

Well, LittleBigPlanet 2 ( and LittleBigPlanet 1 ) have just achieved the unimaginable – both the games combined now boast a cool number of 4 million levels which are solely created by players.


Here’s some news which is sure to please all the gamers who can’t wait to get their hands on the much anticipated  LittleBigPlanet 2 – a demo will be heading to PSN on December 22, 2010. The demo will include a few Story Mode levels and we’ll be able to “see the chaotic multiplayer fun that blows up when competitive scoring mode and some Creatinators armed with rockets are combined!”

What’s more is that, if you’re a PlayStation Plus user, you just might get an invite to become a Closed BETA Tester for LittleBigPlanet 2, as Media Molecule will be sending out invites to a few PSN Plus users early this December. Keep your fingers crossed! January 18 can’t come soon enough, can it?

The latest news that is spreading on the Internet like wildfire is that the NA Collector’s Edition of LittleBigPlanet 2 won’t be arriving until July, 2011. That’s bad news. The Collector’s Edition is every Sackboy-fan’s dream, as it includes:

Media Molecule, on its YouTube Channel, has over time released five “featurette” videos in all giving us an insight into the game’s most radically new and innovative gameplay features. So here’s a list of all the featurette videos:


LittleBigPlanet’s successor – LittleBigPlanet 2 – has finally got a box art:

Media Molecule only recently announced that LittleBigPlanet 2’s release was delayed by 4 weeks. Instead of November, 2010, the game will be releasing on January 18, 2010.

Whenever a big-budget game is set to release, just a few months before, a BETA is released. A BETA is an unfinished version of the game available to a select few to try out. The gamers usually report bugs and give feedback and help the developers better the game.

But then, how are the devs supposed to decide on whom to allow into the BETA? An interesting question… for some games, like for Battlefield: Bad Company 2, they just decided to give away thousands of BETA keys. You can get into the BETA on a first-come-first-serve basis. That’s pretty fair, alright….
