LittleBigPlanet PlayStation Vita internship winner announced!


Here at PlayStation, we’re extremely excited to announce Simone Di Giorgi as the winner of our LittleBigPlanet PlayStation Vita internship placement with his fantastic mini-game creation, Flint – congratulations!

We assembled a select team of portable gaming enthusiasts from across Europe to test and review each of the mini-games that were entered in order to pick the best of the best and what a hard job you gave them! We’d like to say a huge thank you to the many of you that submitted such brilliant entries and really made it a tough process for our devoted European judging panel.

As part of this coveted placement with Sony, Simone from Italy will be flown out to Sweden to join top design studio Tarsier (the designers behind the game itself) to learn the ins and outs of game development and see his mini-game transformed into an amazing piece of published content for the whole LBP community to enjoy!

Before selecting our winner, each mini-game was put to the test and the list was eventually whittled down to our top four finalists. Have a look below to see a list of these awesome games and try them out for yourselves!

Simone Di Giorgi – Flint

David Kuling – Fast Food Frenzy

Henrique Sousa – Legend of… Legend!

Baptiste Belier – Meteor

Congrats Simone! A well deserved win. Enjoy your time in Sweden with the awesome guys at Tarsier! :)

On my Vita, my (digitally purchased) Little Big Planet says “Trial Mode” or “Trial Version” (sorry, I forget which and it’s not near me at the moment) on the launch page (the one that comes up immediately after pressing the bubble/button on Vita’s horrible interface).

This is quite annoying now, as I bought the game as soon as it was released… I think it appeared a few months back. Not sure if it’s ever since I got the cross controller pack or not.

Anyway, it bugs me that I paid my cash and that message implies I haven’t. Game works fine, it’s just annoying. I don’t want to have to uninstall/re-install as I’ll lose my progress.

Any ideas? Anyone else get this?
