Since its release on PlayStation®3 (PS3™) in October 2008, LittleBigPlanet™ has been credited with establishing the Play, Create, Share creative gaming genre by putting the powers of creation firmly in the players’ hands. LittleBigPlanet is a unique experience that provides developer and user-generated levels and an engaging story to explore and Play, a huge host of materials, tools, stickers, and more to Create, and a robust set of online features for everyone to Share these creations with each other via PlayStation®Network. The original title has been widely praised with more than 80 industry awards worldwide, 15 of which have been for ‘Game of the Year’ categories, and the game’s stitched-together mascot, Sackboy™, has broken through as the industry’s newest star—one that has resonated with every member of the family, young and old. Developed by the award-winning team at Media Molecule, the franchise to date has sold over XX million units worldwide and the game continues to grow and evolve helped by on-going expansion through downloadable content and the support of countless fans around the globe who have uploaded over XX million user-created levels to PlayStation Network since launch.
In 2009, the LittleBigPlanet Game of the Year edition was introduced to celebrate these achievements, featuring 18 never-before-seen bonus levels created by members of the community. Hand-picked by the development team, these fans were rewarded with the opportunity to become actual level designers, a notion that all LittleBigPlanet devotees can relate to. Later in 2009, LittleBigPlanet moved to the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) and PSPgo systems allowing players to bring the beloved Sackboy with them on the go. This was followed by the release of LittleBigPlanet™ 2 for the PS3 system providing fans a new means to Play, Create, and Share. This new adventure provided a brand new, beautifully reshaped world for Sackboy to explore and Play, while empowering players to Create their own levels with the same tool set used by the development team. LittleBigPlanet2 offered revolutionary gameplay mechanics and a level of customization and creative control that has never been seen before, allowing users to not only make better levels, but completely new games across multiple genres.
