167w ago - Today SCEA PR Manager Eric Levine has announced that LittleBigPlanet 2 on PS3 now officially launches on January 18, 2011 in North America.
To quote: As you may have heard today, Media Molecule shared some news regarding the release date of LittleBigPlanet 2.
Obviously this is a big blow to our LittleBigPlanet fans, but we're sure you'll understand our decision. As we focus on a 2011 release for our North American, Canadian, and Latin America consumers, we look forward to releasing LittleBigPlanet 2 on January 18th, 2011.
Please keep an eye out for more game details and updates as we move closer to our launch.
LittleBigPlanet 2 is a crazy dream, a dream to allow players to make whatever kind of game they want, but also to play though a great adventure of drama and excitement, power-ups, and cinematics. But like all of the most ambitious ideas, it can be a considerable challenge to turn these dreams in fun games.
We've all been working like powered-up space ninjas and we're almost there, but because we love what we've made, and we love our...
169w ago - SCEA Marketing Manager Mark Valledor has shared a LBP2 video today alongside updates on the LittleBigPlanet 2 PS3 Beta, featurettes and a PAX 2010 wrap-up.
To quote: For those of you paying attention, you've probably heard that LittleBigPlanet 2 beta codes are being distributed.
Here's the skinny: Yes, beta codes are going out. But globally, we're taking steps to best test our server environment, so we're distributing beta codes in phases.
The first phase of testing started earlier this week with our European LBP community. In a few weeks, we'll be growing the participant base with US and other countries. More news to come...
With so many new features in LittleBigPlanet 2, its impossible to discuss all the new things in one sitting. So we're introducing a series of LittleBigPlanet 2 Featurettes that highlight some of the many new things you can do in LBP2, such as the new Grappling Hook and the revamped SHARE experience. Stay tuned to the PlayStation.Blog for continuing episodes of LBP2's Featurettes.
The dust is still settling from this past weekend's PAX 2010, and we had a blast seeing all our fans....
172w ago - SCEE Blog Manager James Gallagher has shared a LittleBigPlanet 2 PS3 video interview from GamesCom 2010 today with Alex Evans of Media Molecule.
To quote: Gamescom 2010 is over but our coverage on the PlayStation Blog is still in full swing. I managed to capture several interviews that there simply wasn't time to publish last week so we'll be spreading them throughout this week, starting with Media Molecule's Alex Evans, talking about the highly anticipated LittleBigPlanet 2.
Just when I thought MM had spilled all the beans on the sequel to one of the most lovable games on PlayStation 3, Alex hit me with a bunch of details I had no idea about, including an outline of the story and an incredible new music generator.
I really enjoy seeing how people went about creating tunes on the original LBP and the idea of this being expanded, with the possibility of it becoming a huge collaborative music project, just blows my mind.
More videos to come later in the week, with MotorStorm Apocalypse coming same time tomorrow.
