241w 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.

The PS2 was later released in North America on October 26, 2000. With more than 140 million units sold as of September 2009, the PlayStation 2 has become the best-selling video game-console of all time and sales are surprsingly still going strong.

Believe it or not, several new games are scheduled to be released for the platform this year.

It's definitely a great milestone for such a revolutionary and innovative game-console that really changed the way we played video games. Happy 10th birthday to the PlayStation 2!"
 

Naughty Dog Wishes PS3 Fans a Very Happy New Year 2010

251w ago - This weekend Naughty Dog's Senior Manager of Marketing Communications Arne Meyer has sent Happy New Year 2010 wishes to PS3 fans.

To quote: All of us at Naughty Dog wanted to wish everyone a Happy Holidays and a very Happy New Year!

2009 has been both incredibly busy AND amazing year for us on all counts. We started the year off working hard on UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves and we had no idea what was going to be in store for us and for our fans as the year progressed.

We had our heads down for most of the year making sure we put together an awesome game that we think you would like, but when E3 came around, we took a moment to stop and realize that things were really coming together as UNCHARTED 2 picked up over 20 awards when all was said and done.

It's safe to say we were stoked to get this recognition and it made us kick things up a notch over the next several months as we were putting the finishing touches on our game. When we released UNCHARTED 2 in October to critical acclaim, we were looking forward to hearing what all of our fans thought on [Register or Login to view links], the PlayStation forums, Twitter and anywhere else on the Internet you discussed our game.

Now, we're wrapping up the year watching our game win Game of the Year...
