LittleBigPlanet Reaches 2 Million Online Players, 725K Levels

After five months on store shelves, Media Molecule's PS3-exclusive LittleBigPlanet has racked up 725,000 player-created levels and 2 million online players, Sony says.
After five months on store shelves, Media Molecule's LittleBigPlanet has racked up nearly two million unique players trying out 725,000 player-created levels online. The PlayStation 3-exclusive sidescroller relies heavily on user-generated content both to provide more gameplay for owners of the game, as well as to serve as grassroots-level marketing demonstrating its avenues for creativity. Those 725,000 levels have garnered some four million player comments in total. As a whole, LittleBigPlanet has been played more than 125 million times. In a press release today, publisher Sony Computer Entertainment specifically called out a number of particularly impressive levels, including "LittleBigPlanet Takeshi's Castle," "LBP Jurassic Park," "LBP-MotorStorm," "LittleBigCalculator," "Uncle Fritz's Funhouse Frenzy," "Illumina Garden," and "Huge Pinball Machine," which it calls a "community favourite." The cited creations comprise approximately .00093 percent of available user-created LittleBigPlanet levels. Said Sony Computer Entertainment Europe content and platforms marketing director Mark Hardy, "LittleBigPlanet is giving people from every walk of life the opportunity to express themselves creatively. The game is just the start. This is Creative Gaming: never-ending experiences that take on lives of their own through their players."
