Sony's community-cum-adventure launches on October 24th.


LittleBigPlanet is a new, ground-breaking PlayStation®3 (PS3™) game, combining an amazing platform adventure with a huge social community. There are places to explore, creative resources to collect and puzzles to solve – all requiring a combination of brains and teamwork.

But that’s only the beginning. The fun really starts when you begin to build your own LittleBigPlanet. Using an advanced physics system which takes full advantage of the PS3’s power, players have the ability to design, shape and build both objects and entire locations for others to view and play, bringing together for the first time the three biggest elements in gaming - play, create, share. Even the game’s central character Sackboy is customisable.

When your world is ready, you can invite anyone within the LittleBigPlanet community on the PlayStation®Network to come and explore your creations, or go and explore everybody else’s - it’s a brilliant way to meet some new sack-buddies!

LittleBigPlanet, already garnering plaudits as one of the most hotly anticipated titles in video game history - is one of the year’s biggest releases. This October LittleBigPlanet is going to change the world of gaming forever

About Little Big Planet

Developed by Media Molecule, LittleBigPlanet™ is a new PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3™) computer entertainment system community-based game with a hugely innovative concept behind it. Players meet on a blue and green planet scattered with individual plots – and use their character’s amazing abilities to play, create and share what they build with other gamers throughout the world via PLAYSTATION®Network.

The LittleBigPlanet experience starts with players learning about their character’s powers to interact physically with the environment. There are places to explore, creative resources to collect and puzzles to solve – all requiring a combination of brains and collaborative teamwork. As soon as players begin their creative skills will grow and they will soon be ready to start creating and modifying their surroundings – the first step to sharing them with the whole community.

Characters have the power to move anything in this glued and stitched-together 3D landscape; they have the power to design, shape and build both objects and entire locations for others to view and play. There’s no complicated level editor; all of these skills can be learned by simply playing the game. Creativity is part of the gameplay experience and playing is part of the creative experience. Players can make their world as open or as secretive to explore as they like. When it’s ready, they can invite anyone within the LittleBigPlanet community to come and explore their patch – or can go and explore everybody else’s.
