249w ago - Straight from GDC 2010, rumor has it Sony is set to release LittleBigPlanet 2 (LBP2) for PS3 this year.

To quote from VG247.com (linked above): "Whether the LittleBigPlanet product's disc-based or a download is unknown as yet, but our source was cast iron on a 2010 ship.

Sony's holding a press conference in GDC's locality this week, but we have no idea if anything from Media Molecule's to be included.

A second game in the series would signal a major change in tack."

It was confirmed in November last year that more than 1.3 million gamer-generated levels had been created for LBP, and last week that more than 2 million have been made to date.
