182w ago - SCEA PR Manager Eric Levine has posted up a video today from E3 2010 showcasing a LittleBigPlanet 2 PS3 community game jam to get fans creative juices flowing!
To quote: As we close the books on E3 2010, I'd like to spotlight one of the games we showcased in Los Angeles this week.
LittleBigPlanet 2 will be on its way to PLAYers, CREATErs, and SHARErs later this year, so we thought we'd help get this creative juices flowing within our great community.
To do this, on June 4th, we invited a selection of talented creators from around the world to come down to the new Media Molecule studio in Guildford (UK) to check out LittleBigPlanet 2 and put the new creation tools to the test.
We gave the 15 attendees 24 hours to go nuts with the new game, allowing them to build anything they could think of. Here's a look at a video from the event to show you what I'm talking about.
And for a complete rundown of the Game Jam, check out LBPCentral.com for impressions written by the creators themselves.

PlayStation Home is about connecting gamers through a universe of games, and this week will mark the launch of yet another powerful addition to our arsenal.
The brand new PlayStation Home Community Theater serves to bring players closer to their favorite gaming Web sites, blogs, podcasts, videocasts (and other media outlets) while further uniting the enormous audience under the shared interest of awesome PlayStation games.
This dedicated screen in PlayStation Home's 10-Screen Theater provides a channel for bloggers and journalists to connect with the huge and diverse PlayStation Home community through exclusive videos specially crafted for PlayStation Home.
This week will see the introduction of our first partners in this new venture – PS Nation. As one of the most respected independent sites focused on PlayStation games, we consider this group of hardcore gaming aficionados to be a perfect introduction to our quickly growing roster of Community Theater participants.
186w ago - Sony's Manager of Content Services Nino Kalogeropoulos has shared details of Australia's new PSN video store today alongside highlights of the exclusive OZ community event.
To quote: A special community event entitled 'PlayStation Life in 2010′ was held on May 18th at an exclusive location at Sydney's Coogee Beach, to usher in the arrival of the PlayStation Network video delivery service for Australia. Yay!
Now available, the PS Video Store allows Aussie PS3 and PSP owners to rent or buy hundreds of SD and HD movies, including the latest releases like Avatar, Inglourious Basterds, Up In The Air, Ninja Assassin, Sherlock Holmes, and Twilight New Moon.
New movies will be added to the Store on a weekly basis for the movie junkies in us all, and you can browse the available movies right here on the new PS Movies Web area.
Hollywood Actress Radha Mitchell (star of the recent film 'The Surrogates' alongside Bruce Willis) was a special guest at the event, along with Alison Turner, the Marketing Director of Sony Network Entertainment, and Michael Ephraim, Managing Director of Sony Computer Entertainment Australia.
But the PS Video store isn't the only product that was experienced at this exclusive...

HASTAC/MacArthur Foundation Contest Update
As part of our collaborative effort with HASTAC and the MacArthur Foundation to encourage students to pursue science, technology, engineering and math in new and revolutionary ways, we thought you'd enjoy checking out the latest entry for the "Game Changer's" category.
This nifty community creation was submitted by the same LBP community members that made the popular "LittleBigContra" levels. It's titled, "To the Moon and Beyond," and to announce their project, they've released a trailer to give us all an insight of what's to come:
204w ago - Here is the first minor demo video of our Community Custom Firmware (CCFW) for the Nintendo Wii console.
Theme is taken from DVBisOk and also he hase made some new layout hacks. For this demo I just have changed the text of the buttons in the settings menu. But I want to do some more like delating the system update and online update function.
Changing the FW branding. Mainly to time its not possible in case of a unknown Lz7 format for the Wii "wwwlib-rvl.lz7" file. This is the Wii libs and im pretty sure the version will be stored in there.
But anyway maybe its possible to hack the .js and .html files to swap a self-made image or hardcoded version and id branding on the same place.
Uhmm yea, it is called community because I do not really have a source code or something else. Instead of that I just put the best things from the community and compile it to one great installable CFW.
I'm sure there are more plz out what can do the job much better then me. But in a special case it seems that no one want it to do. So... I will do.
Also if it is possible I want to add priiloader as a fixed part of the CCFW so that you simply install a bunch of wads and your save. In case that you allready have bootmii as boot2 installed you then have 2 reall great backdoors...
