The promise of Media Molecule's Little Big Planet from its beginning has been an open sandbox in which users can explore any number of level creation and customization options. And, it would appear, Little Big Planet owners have taken their cue. Sony Europe announced today that 725,000 user-generated levels have been created for the PlayStation 3-exclusive title.
Sony also announced today that "nearly 2 million players worldwide have joined the Little Big Planet community since its launch in November 2008." The publisher did not delineate the specifics of what that figure entails and did not indicate if more than one player can become a member of the community using a single copy of the game. Sony had not responded to requests for clarification as of press time.
Sony CEO Sir Howard Stringer said in January at this year's Consumer Electronics Show that Little Big Planet had sold 1.3 million units worldwide. The well-rated platformer has also received a number of awards this year, walking away from last week's Game Developers Choice Awards with accolades for Best Game Design, Best Technology, Best Debut Game, and the Innovation Award.
