LittleBigPlanet is definitely one of the hottest properties right now on the PS3. And almost nobody’s even played the game yet! So it was with interest that I saw an interview with one of the people behind LittleBigPlanet,
For example, here’s an interesting snippet:
The general consensus is that only a small proportion of consumers create content in spaces like these. How will you ensure that Little Big Planet isn’t over-run by freeloaders, and there is always new content for players to consume?
We will put in what people will expect for a game at the time that it launches. There will be a full game’s worth of Media Molecule levels and assets which users get to play with and to use as their building blocks. After the launch, once we start to see how the community goes, we can make content available for download very easily and very quickly. We can respond to a world event, like the Olympic games for example, and we may decide to do some cool sets for the community, or make country costumes. We might even build an Olympic village that the community can use to stage their Olympics in.
