LittleBigPlanet got off to a modest start in 2008, but it wasn't a runaway hit. For my wife and I, it was the entire reason we bought a PlayStation 3, but for others, it was simply a floaty, uninspired platformer. I think on ...

LittleBigPlanet is going to become a kart racer, creatively titled LittleBigPlanet Karting. It seems odd that a series built around making what you want and creating many types of games has been restricted to a single genre, ...
LittleBigPlanet on the PlayStation Vita was a show-stopper for many at E3 2011 with its amazing visuals. Dale North was able to play around with the game for a while, and wrote about how well the PS Vita'...

We are getting ever closer to the busiest shopping day of the year. Kmart has some pretty good deals going on. Here's a short list of what you can expect to find should you choose to do shopping there: $199.99 - Get a $25 gi...
We are now officially less than a week away from the post-Turkey Day madness. If you're set on stopping by either Walmart or Best Buy I can't blame you for that. Here's why you should still give Target a chance though: $139....
Well, here we are two weeks away from Black Friday itself. Pretty soon every retailer in existence will once again be vying for your post-Turkey Day attention with unheard of prices on pretty much everything. Walmart has gott...
Some new screenshots for LittleBigPlanet on the PlayStation Vita have squirted out of Gamescom, and they're looking quite pretty indeed. Really reminds me of the time when I thought the Game Boy's collection of black blocks o...
During the PlayStation Network downtime in May, many thought the outlook for Sony and its properties looked mighty bleak. Network outages mean lowered consumer trust and, more often than not, a reluctance to return to the ser...

Yesterday it was announced that Sackboy from LittleBigPlanet 2 would get some Final Fantasy VII treatments. That sounds like a fun idea until you actually see them. Gah! Aeris/Aerith looks so derpy that I can't look at the ab...
LittleBigPlanet on Vita has to be seen in person to be believed. It's beautiful! Sony put together a little playable demo to show off how they worked in all of the new Vita interface types into the LittleBigPlanet world. It w...
At least for the time being -- which, admittedly hasn't been very long -- the emphasis on the PlayStation Vita's software library seems to heavily favor games that were successful, beefy favorites on PlayStation 3. Y'know --...
When LittleBigPlanet 2 shipped, it included some token support for PlayStation Move in the form of Sackboy's Prehistoric Moves. While cute, the self-contained levels didn't leverage full support of the peripheral. That's chan...
The above video is of Massive Epic Raging Destruction (MERD), a first-person shooter game built using the game creation tools in Little Big Planet 2. As a guy who can barely grasp the idea of what's possible with enough...
Warning: this video may cause your face to melt if you have an attachment to Back to the Future. Even during the beta for LittleBigPlanet 2, we saw some serious shit. And, as evidenced by Kotaku's Stephen Totilo, creative re...
LittleBigPlanet developer Media Molecule is trying to get the word out that there's now a wiki for the creatively demanding platformer series. Whatever makes building Zelda dungeons easier is fine by me. The wiki will be run ...

Hey guys, did you hear that Barack Obama is a bad president? He is such a bad president, actually! We should do something to assert our political beliefs and take a stand for what we believe in? How about we create a level in...

Media Molecule once said that LittleBigPlanet would never get a sequel, that it was something the studio wouldn't ever want to do. Whatever changed between then and now, LittleBigPlanet got the second installment that the mor...

Sony bringing its biggest franchises to handhelds? Shocking!The original LittleBigPlanet found itself a successful port on the PlayStation Portable, sure, so why not the game's sequel? There's one on the way, according to ret...
The bigger issue with user-fueled games like LittleBigPlanet usually isn't the lack of creativity; rather, it's having a system that makes the good content rise to the top and everything else fall to the murky depths. The jus...
It's funny how collectively, we always rush to see familiar recreations of beloved properties (Level 1-1, Green Hill Zone, etc.) in user-created content rather than inventive, new ideas. Why play as some no-name character in...
