Humbled, Honored and Hooray’ing all day!!! LittleBigPlanet AIAS awards recap!

Mark Valledor's Avatar + Posted by Mark Valledor on Feb 20, 2009 // Marketing Manager, SCEA

For those that may have missed it, LittleBigPlanet was a big hit last night at the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences’ 12th Annual Interactive Achievement Awards in Las Vegas. In addition to winning the Overall Game of the Year category, we were also honored with some incredible awards including:

  • Console Game of the Year
  • Family Game of the Year
  • Outstanding Achievement in Game Direction
  • Outstanding Achievement in Art Direction
  • Outstanding Achievement in Visual Engineering
  • Outstanding Innovation in Gaming

And to cap it off, SackBoy picked up the eight award for Outstanding Character Performance.

So on behalf of us here at Sony and the Molecules, a sincere ‘thank you’ to all the endless and incredible support of our LittleBigPlanet community and fans. This game is as much yours as it is ours.

In addition to being honored by AIAS, we were truly flattered that Beat Crusaders used our beloved SackBoy for their Phantom Planet music video. Check it out!

That’s SO exciting!!!!

Congratulations on recieving all of those amazing awards! (You guys have to be breaking some sort of record now… right?) And, now LBP in a music video?!!?!?

It sounds to me like LittleBig Planet is becoming a cultural phenomenon as opposed to “just a game”…

+ ILOVEPLASTATION3 on February 20th, 2009 at 5:31 pm said:

Also, with all the greatness this game has, you should create a “short” show with these little guys and give them voices. I sure would watch it and am sure it would be funny. ;)

congratz MM i (heart) LBP and DLC

+ Jeigh on February 20th, 2009 at 6:23 pm said:

Something for the entire PlayStation Nation to be proud of. Just wish the sales reflected that pride to such an extreme degree.

On a similar front, I’m surprised to say that I was wrong about releasing those KZ2 reviews so early on. I figured it would make it old news by the time it came out, but it’s now one week away and I am sufficiently hyped for my copy to arrive. Go ahead and throw this on the stack of instances in which the fans perhaps didn’t know what they were talking about. Kudos, Mark et al.

41

+ Cancer-fish on February 20th, 2009 at 8:31 pm said:

so, ‘game of the year’ award that actually meant something, and it goes to LBP? dare I say, I’m not surprised and neither should you.


42

+ nervog on February 20th, 2009 at 8:39 pm said:

I love Beat Crusaders I just wish I had the time to play LBP.


43

+ Squamden on February 20th, 2009 at 8:40 pm said:

Congratulations! I watched the awards on IGN, and I think we can all agree that LittleBigPlanet definitely deserves the honors.


44

+ EddyxMob on February 20th, 2009 at 8:49 pm said:

awesome video and congrats


45

+ Arexia on February 20th, 2009 at 8:57 pm said:

Congratulations! I played LittleBigPlanet on my brother’s PS3 and fell in love with it instantly! Since I don’t have a PS3 (yet), I’ll have to wait unless any plans for LBP on the PSP are unveiled. Again, congrats, y’all deserve it :)


46

+ starBlinky01 on February 20th, 2009 at 9:02 pm said:

can you guys please make a daily best levels. Its pointless the way it is now.

Okay its not pointless, but the same levels will be there forever, its never going to change, so once you play them all, thats it forever, you have to resort back to the old ways of finding levels.


47

+ saintaqua on February 20th, 2009 at 9:03 pm said:

Even though all those other sites chose GTA as GOTY, I knew LBP was due more honors. It is far more deserving of the award than any other game last year.
Keep the great games coming MM!!


48

+ Vengeful-Chaos on February 20th, 2009 at 9:03 pm said:

Congrats on sacking the AIAS awards, well deserved for MM and Sony!
