Hello from the LittleBigPlanet team here at SCEE.
Each week the boffins in our IT department send us a big spreadsheet full of numbers. Some of the numbers mention stuff like “concurrency” and “peak measures”, which are all very nice although not, for the most part, tremendously exciting. But there is one number in particular that we’ve always kept a close eye on: the number of levels uploaded by the community. And this week, that number became very, very special indeed.
Since the headline for this post ruins the suspense a little bit, I’ll just get on with it: the LittleBigPlanet community has now uploaded over a million levels.
One. Million. Levels.
Utterly amazing, isn’t it?
If you are a member of the LittleBigPlanet community, then please can you give yourself a big pat on the back from everyone at Media Molecule and SCE. We are in awe of the creativity, effort and invention that you have all shown in making LBP such a great place to have fun.
In case you were wondering, those million levels have been played a total of 244 million times.
The fact that you keep coming back to play, create and share makes us feel all warm and happy.
To those of you who haven’t yet tried LittleBigPlanet, let me ask you a question. Sackboy has won hundreds of awards, has a metacritic score of 95 out of 100, and now has over a million different levels to play … don’t you think you might be missing out? :-)
If you aren’t sure, then can I suggest you check back on this blog around the 18th August? We might have something for you…
