Rare LittleBigPlanet DLC Costs Big Bucks

By Spencer . November 6, 2008 . 6:50am

The Sephiroth and Old Snake Sackboy outfits cost $1.99 each, which isn’t too bad since there may be licensing fees involved. In comparison to this Rare T-shirt the premium outfits seem like a bargain. Sony is selling this piece of downloadable content for 500 yen ($5) in Japan. Seriously? $5 for a virtual T-shirt?

LittleBigPolitics, LittleBigPlanet As An Obama/McCain Voting Machine

By Spencer . November 3, 2008 . 4:44pm

LittleBigPlanet can be used to design anything and one user made a level where players pick their Presidential candidate. This isn’t as polished as the awesome 1980s shooter level floating around, but it’s a little reminder that LittleBigPlanet can be used to make anything. Remember votes in LittleBigPlanet don’t count so if you’re in the […]

By Spencer . September 30, 2008 . 9:25pm

Seeing Super Mario Brothers remade in LittleBigPlanet is expected, but Chocobo Racing? Hold it right there! A LittleBigPlanet beta user whipped up a short level with the theme of Chocobo Racing.

LittleBigPlanet started off as a music game

By Jerisaka . July 24, 2008 . 2:17pm

  The original idea behind LittleBigPlanet, the largely user-generated platforming title from Media Molecule, was to give musicians a chance to jam with each other online over the Playstation Network.  As it turned out, using the Playstation 3 as a conduit for collaborative improvisation and rehearsal was a trickier problem than expected.  Luckily, a whole […]
