Sony announces a Media Molecule sequel to one of the most critically acclaimed games of 2008...

Sony has announced that Media Molecule, the breakout developer of 2008's LittleBigPlanet, is hard at work on a sequel to the game that will not only allow players to create platform levels, but racing games and shooters as well - even cooking simulators, according to initial Sony publicity.

LittleBigPlanet 2

The ability to build and create vehicles, puzzles, intelligent machines, cinematic cut-scenes, and even NPCs called Sackbots that either "help or hinder players" could effectively change the LittleBigPlanet series from a game that allows users to create platform gaming content, to a game that allows them to create any gaming content they want.

LittleBigPlanet 2 will include a "brand-new, epic story adventure" as well to ensure that the standalone single-player campaign is well catered for, while Media Molecule is even going so far as to make this sequel backwards compatible with the original game's 2 million+ user created levels.

These are bold and exciting promises indeed from Sony and Media Molecule. However, if the original LittleBigPlanet ia anything to go by, then we have faith that these grand ambitions can be achieved. It's currently slated for a 2010 release on PS3 - stay tuned for more as we get it...

I'd actually be fine with them not making any more LBP games. They can give us a nice DLC package once a year or whatever. I mean, this is THE game that pretty much never ends and has new stuff available anytime you pop it in.

 

Let them do something else if they have ideas.

According to James Spafford, Media Molecule's Community Manager, LBP isn't going anywhere any time soon. The main message: Don't panic!

true.  however the psp version was still brilliant.  and the vita version is being done by a studio full of ex rockstar employees, so hopes are high.  (imo)

It's important to note that the Vita version (like the PSP version before it) is not being developed by Media Molecule.

super mario 64 used the be the best platform game in the world.

then little big planet came along and took its crown.

nintendo, through all these years has not been able to better mario 64, as good as galaxy 2 is, it's not better than mario 64.

molecule however, HAVE managed to better lbp!  8)

I expected this game to get higher but nontheless this is its score. I encourage anyone who likes platformers to get this game. To me its a ten and thats all that matters. The main story was not as great as the first but still pretty good, and there will be millions of levels to play from other people as people have already started making them. It really is a platform for platformers and there is hundreds of hours of replayability.

stuff looking at reviews who gives a f*** about a review score, take GT5 for example this site gave it 9/10 where as others gave it lower scores some even went as far as giving it 5/10 does that mean its bad, play the f*****g game to get a first impression, if you like it you like it if not then try somthing else.

 

again anyone who only goes by review scores as its been clearly pointed out COD is way overhyped are just moronic sheep, stop judging games by reviews, gwynne dixon diddnt like the saboteur as he blatently said in his review however i found it to be a very good story driven sandbox game and i liked it.

 

you sheep need to stop going by reviews and get on with gaming, if you carry on moaning your not gamers your just sad retarded fanboys.

not at all.  i up until last week was still playing little big planet, it's still amazing.  played the beta for little big planet 2 and it just adds on every single aspect of the game.  from presentation, to level design, to design tools, graphics, sound, everything.  it's absolutely everything you could ever ask of a game sequel.  the only issue i ever read about being 'bad' in little big planet, is the game physics.  and you can even change them in little big planet 2 to totally suit you how you want it to be.  whether sonic-like speed or mario like accuracy.  the game is easily game of the year so far.  basically, i will buy the game regardless of the scores given by reviews.  but it's just such a shame to see developers lose out to sheep that actually DO follow their favourite sites advice.  especially when games like modern warfare 2, which let's face it was a big let down, get's such a out of proportionally high score.  believe it or not, some people do look for reviews of games before buying them, especially when they are on a budget and can only afford a couple every 2 months or so.  rant over anyway lol.
