181w ago - SCEA Marketing Manager Mark Valledor has posted up this week's LittleBigPlanet PS3 community update, which includes new Marvel Costume Packs and a LBP Level Kit and more!
To quote: A few weeks back, during the Mm Community Jam, Alex, myself and the rest of the Mm team stayed up all night with our super-users.
And when you combine no sleep + coffee / energy drinks / both with fun, creative minds and lots of laughter ensues. Particularly at my expense, as they found out I was the Marketing Manager for Genji: Days of the Blade.
From then it was nonstop Genji talk, ending in a brilliant auto-tuned song dedicated to me, with brilliant lyrics and chorus of "Massive Damage" / "Giant Crabs". Payback time...
Marvel Costume packs and Level Kit coming July 7th!
Hey, True Believers! Coming soon to the PlayStation Store will be a whole series of official Marvel comic Super Hero and Super Villain costumes for your Sackboys and Sackgirls.
Starting July 7th and every other week following, we'll introduce four different Marvel Costume Packs, each with five different costumes depicting Marvel's mightiest Super Heroes and most dreaded Super Villains....
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.
182w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a LittleBigPlanet 2 PS3 interview today with James Gallagher and Media Molecule's Alex Evans and Mark Healey.
To quote: With well over 2 million user-created levels playable in LittleBigPlanet, it's safe to say that Media Molecule knows what makes the gaming community tick.
Recently, the Molecules did something else that proved pretty popular: they opened their doors to the top creators in that community, giving them a chance to spend a day trying out LittleBigPlanet 2's powerful creation tools.
Our intrepid European counterpart, James Gallagher, was on hand in Guildford, England for the event, and interviewed MM's Alex Evans and Mark Healey - presented now for your viewing pleasure.
It's sunny! Are you sure you shot this in England, James?
