LittleBigPlanet 3 Reportedly In Development With New Studio [Rumor]

The world of LittleBigPlanet may continue from an unlikely source based on a new rumor.  While LBP creator Media Molecule may have parted ways with the world of imagination in favor of new IPs such as Tearaway, Sony is nonetheless focused on keeping things going - even if it means changing developers.

SCEE Enlists The Services Of Veteran From Rare

Sony may have cannibalized their European studios last year with the closure of BigBig Studios (Pursuit Force) and the acclaimed Studio Liverpool, but the Euro branch of PlayStation isn’t being thrown to the wolves just yet. Besides Media Molecule and Studio Cambridge still playing a big part in the ever growing master plans of the PlayStation empire, Sony has enlisted the services of a former veteran from Rare Studios to help guide things.

Media Molecule Already Working On New Unannounced Project

One of the big surprises made during Sony’s Gamescom presentation this week was the reveal of Tearaway, the new IP from Media Molecule. After giving the world the game that keeps on giving in the form of LittleBigPlanet, Media Molecule has gone on to create a game that features the same whimsical tone but is a bit more direct and dare I say it traditional in how it’s executed.  It was a bit surprising that Media Molecule revealed that their new IP was a PlayStation Vita game, but fear not as the folks over in Guildford are indeed working on a second project.

LittleBigPlanet Karting Hands-On [E3 2012]

There are some franchises that deserve spinoffs, reboots, remakes, whatever you may call it and then there are others that should be left alone since they’re perfect as is.  With a franchise like LittleBigPlanet that’s almost genre in itself due to the creations that are capable of being built within it, there didn’t seem like much sense to do a LBP spin-off revolved around kart racing. Can’t we already do kart racing through a nifty user creation so what’s the point of throwing down $60 for a new game?

Will LittleBigPlanet Go The MMO Route? [Rumor]

Media Molecule may be taking a break from releasing games for a while as the studio is currently hard at work on something – the likes of which the general public knows absolutely nothing about.  Instead of cranking out annual LittleBigPlanet games Media Molecule and company owner Sony have decided to take a breather from the franchise on the PS3 while spin-offs (LBP Karting) and ports (LBP Vita) take center stage.

Combine LittleBigPlanet 2 With Jurassic Park And This Is The Result [Video]

LittleBigPlanet 2 may be an “ancient” game at this point since it came out early last year, but the game is simply the gift that keeps on giving.  I don’t think anyone expected the game to produce as much goodness as it has done so far with people creating elaborate FPS mini-games or entirely original creations that attempt to tell a loose narrative similar to that of Journey.  The LBP2 community isn’t close to dying and I doubt such a thing will happen unless LBP3 is announced (which I have a feeling it won’t be) but in recent months not much has caught the eye of people.

Find Out Who Is Developing LittleBigPlanet For The PlayStation Vita

The PlayStation Vita has wowed a lot of people so far but some of them have been a bit apprehensive about how the touch interface controls will be in major core centric games such as Uncharted: Golden Abyss. While tapping on the PS Vita’s beautiful OLED screen to create a path for Nathan to climb in Uncharted was a bit odd, it wasn’t too gimmicky in the Golden Abyss demo I played earlier this month. But one game that has near perfect implementation of the PS Vita’s front and rear touch interfaces is none other than LittleBigPlanet.

Is Media Molecule Developing The NGP Version Of LittleBigPlanet?

When it was revealed that LittleBigPlanet would be making its way onto the NGP (PSP2) it wasn’t really a shocking moment.  With how the LBP franchise has blossomed to become one of Sony’s key 1st party franchises it makes sense for another portable version of everyone’s favorite creation based game to be in the works.  Details about LittleBigPlanet for the NGP were of course as empty as a freshly opened My Moon level, but one key question that lingered was who would be developing the project.

Big Smile Reviews: LittleBigPlanet 2

For some time now I was thinking of taking up a course in programming. Then I could finally create the perfect Sonic game. But that would take a few years of studying and a lot of money. So here is the other option, buy LittleBigPlanet 2 and start creating your very own games in a matter of days!! There are already millions of levels online, and every day more are being created. Its like every day there is new DLC and its always free.

Some fighting action makes its way into LBP2

With the amazing user created levels we’ve seen out of LittleBigPlanet 2, I think it would almost be fitting for the game to have a subtitle of some sort.  Perhaps something like LBP2: Blow Your Mind Edition or something more subtle like LBP2: Infinity would be a rather appropriate titles to sum up the possibilities offered in the game.  It may take a lot of time and dedication to execute a concept and make it into something that other people will like to play, but thanks to dedicated folks out there we have new gems like Sony vs. Marvel vs. Capcom.
