LBP Reaches Two Incredible Milestones

April 2, 2009 Written by Draisey

Sony recently announced that its popular platforming/creation game, LittleBigPlanet, has reached two impressive milestones. The LBP community currently has almost 2 million members worldwide, and has generated over 750,000 levels since its launch in late October in the U.S., and November in Europe. While LBP is famous for allowing its community members to make levels inspired by game franchises and movies, even game developers themselves have jumped in and taken advantage of LBP’s creation tools.

Mark Hardy, SCEE’s European Marketing Director had this to say about LBP’s success:

“LittleBigPlanet is giving people from every walk of life the opportunity to express themselves creatively. The game is just the start. This is Creative Gaming; never ending experiences that take on lives of their own through their players.

LittleBigPlanet appeals to a generation shaped by their networks and thirsty for great experiences to share with friends. Where LittleBigPlanet goes from here is up to its community; it is theirs to shape however they like. This makes it much more inclusive than gaming has ever been before.”
