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

Mark Valledor's Avatar Posted by 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!

I dunno who that band is (J-rock?), but that is an awesome music video. The really creative geniuses within the LBP community never cease to amaze me with youtube/mock-ups (WHERE IS MY VAL CHRON SACKPERSON OUTFIT SEGA!? IF NEOGAF CAN PHOTOSHOP ONE WHY CAN’T YOU CALL MM AND MAKE IT REAL!? ;___;)/etc. etc. etc. Totally awesome. I think MM has hit their goal in getting people to be creative/getting kids to be creative really well.

Cool video game!!! Now, please!!! fix the “profile cannot be saved because it is too large” problem… The problem is completely annoying, not to mention it gets in the way of enjoying LBP, poor Sackboy gets killed at times because of the message error popping out at the bad times…. PLEASE!!!!

I’m super proud of you guys at MM for doing what you did, and these awards are the type that should make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. You did the world a great favor, and the PlayStation community thanks you with the deepest parts of our hearts! You guys ROCK!

Nice 1;) Loved the LBP/MGS4 Level pack guys ;-P Any chance of a LBP/KillZone 2 Level pack??? ;)

mike0_o said:

February 21st, 4:07 am

so im guessing the 27th is when the helgas costume comes out becuse thats when killzone 2 comes out in U.S So my question is if thats correct or is it coming out a bit earlier

Try my Metal Gear Solid – Shadow Moses Part 1 and 2

big deal. havent played the game since launch…very one dimensional.

Congrats to MM, it’s a great game and they deserve the accolades.

BTW, Beat Crusaders are signed to DefSTAR Records, a subsidiary of Sony Music Japan. I have a sneaking suspicion this might have something to do with the LBP video.

Everyone who owns a PS3 but not this game should get punched in the eye.

Then they should be forced, by law, to purchase 2 copies of this game.

Wow – more awards! Congratulations MM & Sony!

Spread the love! Maybe its time to start working on LBP2?!

Finally a game that deserves recognition wins big at an award show. That mantlepiece must be getting pretty full…

Well deserved!!!!!!! LBP is awesome!!

i want Sackboy plushies btw

Kenshin71 said:

You know what would be a cool idea? Since these awards are decided by developers and those in the industry it would be cool to see some levels by high profile developers, Kojima or Jaffe or the guys at Insomniac or Jenovah Chen, something like that. Not game tie ins like the MGS stuff but just original levels by developers. Sony, send out some emails.

verafx said:

February 21st, 5:45 am

Thats great, LBP is one of my favorite games and deserves the attention its getting. Keep up the good work guys.

lakaiHIGH said:

February 21st, 6:14 am

oh yeah forgot to mention… please put the music video and song on the PSN. (preferably free)

thanks,

linuxguru said:

That video was amazing! It would be great if we could do something like that in LBP. What I mean is using real live (or pre-recorded) background environments…and actually attach stuff to it (like the speakers in the video that are attached to the scaffolding). More integration with the PS Eye would be great too.

Congratulations MM and Sony!!!!

Just a hint—to celebrate you should make a high def version of the Beat Crusader’s video a free download in the PSN store–that’d be cool!

February 21st, 9:08 am

Congratulations Media Molecule! It’s well deserved from all your hard work and REAL innovation(not like that fake innovation other companies claim to have :).

I played the beta and bought the game on release and have since converted several people to LBP, its the best party game ever made in my opinion. More people are willing to play it than Rock Band, even :).

Wow good job MM you guys deserve it.

No matter how you play this game you can never get bored.

Gotta love the level design its like im a inventor :D.

SDkngsht said:

February 21st, 1:13 pm

congrats. i love this game. everytime i turn it on i see/play something new. keep the updates and innovations coming.

hopefully this will force some other companies to keep pushing the envelope and step up their creativity game.

PS3 is home to all of my favorite innovative games that are a breath of fresh air this generation. from LBP to PJ Monsters to Uncharted to even Flower. people who say the PS3 doesn’t have any games don’t own one…period.

great job people.

Congrats on the rewards Media Molecule, you guys deserved them.

I liked the music video, although it would of been sweet if it all was one big level that they made so we could play it too.

February 21st, 1:27 pm

Wow. I was watching the awards last night and i was glued to my seat! Seeing LittleBigPlanet win so many awards made me happy! I raised my copy in pride! Congratulations Media Molecule. Thank you for taking the risk Sony.

Sony, if 2.7 firmware rumors are true please remember we don’t just want improved chat features, we want party chat and cross game chat. Our friends and only our friends.
