Tickled with its users’ continued dedication, Sony has said that LittleBigPlanet 2 users have created over 4 million levels, which the company’s biggest brains estimate would take a single player about 78 years to play through.
Online users can play through any of these levels and give each a rating, which in turn can of course be used to either steer users toward a great level or away from a horrendously lame one — lest those 78 years be poorly spent.
Media Molecule, the game’s developer, said of the success:
For us the most exciting thing has always been seeing what the community does with a LittleBigPlanet game when they get their hands on the new features and tools. We’re constantly delighted — and amazed — by their ingenuity and creativity, and it’s so inspiring to see the level of affection that exists for LittleBigPlanet amongst fans around the world.
The LittleBigPlanet series made its debut in 2008 and has been a runaway hit with its unique take on hybrid 2D/3D platforming. Presently, there are two LBP games on PS3 and one for PSP. Given its tremendous success, there’ll surely be more, some time down the road.
