LittleBigPlanet 2: LittleBigPrius Contest and Level Coming soon
Toyota and PS have teamed together to bring us a free LBP2 level called â€œLittleBigPrius.” It will be available in “early February” through the PSN to kick off an upcoming â€œcreate your own levelâ€ contest. The prizes for this contest include PS Move bundles and a 46â€ Sony Bravia 3D HDTV.
All the details are below.
â€œLittleBigPriusâ€ consists of a traditional platforming section (with puzzles, of course!) followed by a top-down driving portion made possible by LBP2â€™s new tools. Along the way, youâ€™ll be able to collect a number of items which you can then use to create your own levels. Thatâ€™s where the contest comes in! We want you to use these collected items, and anything else your clever little minds can come up with, to create your own Prius-inspired LBP2 level. Be sure to name your level â€œPrius_[Your Level Name Here]â€ so that it can be easily located (and, no, we donâ€™t want you to actually use the words â€œYour Level Name Hereâ€ unless thatâ€™s the best you can come up withâ€¦ in which case, a contest based upon creativity is probably not for you).
When the contest officially begins, publish your level online so that members of the LBP community will have a chance to play and comment upon it. Most importantly, theyâ€™ll be able to â€œheartâ€ it if they really like it. When the contest ends, the ten highest-ranked levels, as chosen by the community, will be selected as our finalists. From these finalists, SCEA will choose one Grand Prize winner and four First Prize winners on the basis of originality, quality/polish, Toyota Prius brand awareness, and use of the items obtained from our LittleBigPrius level. The Grand Prize winner will be awarded a 46â€ Sony Bravia 3D HDTV and a PlayStation Move hardware bundle which includes a PlayStation 3 system, the PlayStation Eye camera, PlayStation Move motion controller and Sports Champions game. The four First Place winners will receive a PlayStation Move Sports Champions bundle, consisting of the game, the PlayStation Eye camera and a PlayStation Move motion controller.
