LittleBigPlanet Community Reaches One Million Creations

SackBoy's Avatar + Posted by SackBoy on Jul 22, 2009 // CEO of LittleBigPlanet

Each week the data-miners in our IT department here at Sackboy Central send us a big spreadsheet full of numbers. Some of the numbers mention stuff like “concurrency” and “peak measures”, which are all very nice, although not, for the most part, tremendously exciting. But there is one number in particular that we’ve always kept a close eye on: the number of levels uploaded by the LittleBigPlanet community. And this week, that number became awesome indeed. The community has now uploaded over one million levels.

One. Million. Levels.

Amazing, isn’t it? Just think, this means that a new level has been published roughly every 21 seconds since LittleBigPlanet launched.

If you, dear PlayStation Blog reader, are a member of the LittleBigPlanet community, then please can you give yourself a big pat on the back from everyone at Media Molecule and PlayStation. We are in awe of the creativity, effort and invention that you have all shown in making LBP such a great place to build, share and have fun together.

In case you were wondering, those million levels have been played a total of 244 million times.

The fact that you keep coming back to play, create and share makes us feel all warm and happy.

To those of you who haven’t yet tried LittleBigPlanet, let me ask you a question. What the heck are you waiting for? With over a million different levels to play … don’t you think you might be missing out? :-)

Oh, and one last thing before I’m off to play some of these great user-generated creations on PlayStation Network: check back on this blog around the 18th of August. The folks at Media Molecule might have something interesting to tell you about then…

In the meantime, the lovely people at Media Molecule made this image to celebrate the great LBP community. Enjoy! And keep those fun levels coming!

HOLY COW!!!!1 Million

I am glad I was able to contribute to it by adding one of my own (SPARDA’s QUEST)

Thanks for the great game.

I still haven’t gotten to creating a level and wouldn’t for some time. Only because I’m moving and my games are packed up in storage. Damn!


+ Patriotbball5460 on July 22nd, 2009 at 8:24 am said:

Congrats, you guys truly deserve it!


+ Kenshin71 on July 22nd, 2009 at 8:24 am said:

That’s great. Now please add a weekly Top 5 to the Search Options of the best user made levels. They could be picked by MM, fansites, gaming sites, developers etc. and based around certain themes.

It would be great to have an easily accessible showcase of the best user made levels from those million levels created. There is plenty of content there so what are you waiting for?


+ stinkey on July 22nd, 2009 at 8:24 am said:

BTW Congrats to MM and the whole LBP Community for such a milestone


+ jipmg on July 22nd, 2009 at 8:25 am said:

Thats awsome, I hope we get more STORY levels and more trophies to LBP, and more DLC!



+ Zezzler on July 22nd, 2009 at 8:25 am said:

+ TwinDad on July 22nd, 2009 at 8:27 am said:

Congratulations. Impressive.

Now take out the H4H and Trophy levels and your left with 500K.

Still love the game.


+ BlindMango on July 22nd, 2009 at 8:31 am said:

woah, amazing!


+ EyeAmmMcLovin on July 22nd, 2009 at 8:33 am said:

I ADORE this game! One million lvls huh? That’s pretty awesome. I haven’t actually put LBP in my PS3 for about three months now, because I’ve decided that I’m going to wait for the Ratchet coustume to come out to ensure maximum enjoyment when I play through the story again. Thank you Media Molecule for making such an amazing game!


+ Delriach on July 22nd, 2009 at 8:34 am said:

Congrats LBP!

… now, when are we getting Sackiroth!?


+ Big_Hawk97 on July 22nd, 2009 at 8:38 am said:

Glad to know so many levels have been created. I just wish more of them were good. Or that mine would get played.


+ Curtisio on July 22nd, 2009 at 8:39 am said:

I love LittleBigPlanet! I play, create, and share all the time. The game rocks! Thank you MM!


+ Carl-G on July 22nd, 2009 at 8:43 am said:

We need real water in the game?

Nice one anyway ;)


+ Anubis80 on July 22nd, 2009 at 8:45 am said:

Thats cool. I cant play right now since my PS3 is dead and have to wait until this weekend to send in my $150 to get my coffin for it. But I play about once a week.

So whats the announcement on Aug 18th about?
Come on share now! Thats what LBP is all about! hahahaha ;)


+ dragonmagician on July 22nd, 2009 at 8:45 am said:

At this rate, there will be over 10 million levels at the end of PS3’s lifecycle. Amazing.

Hopefully, the Aug. 18 information is something interesting (not costumes – since I have enough already; or GOTY edition – since I have the game already).


+ LuckyJuve on July 22nd, 2009 at 8:46 am said:

FANTASTIC LITTLE BIG PLANET, one of the most beautiful videgiochi recent years, EXTRAORDINARY


+ tobz1000 on July 22nd, 2009 at 8:48 am said:

Nice montage! Without knowing better, one could easily assume those were all professional levels.


+ BigRon3400 on July 22nd, 2009 at 8:49 am said:

Congratulations Mr. Sackboy!


+ MakulaTolkien on July 22nd, 2009 at 8:55 am said:

Congrats! I really want to go back and play some LBP this weekend


+ ADR143 on July 22nd, 2009 at 8:55 am said:

dam good job MM and little big planet!

nice vid also!


+ Korbei83 on July 22nd, 2009 at 8:58 am said:

Are the first 50 pages listed under ‘Top Rated’ still bogus trophy levels?

Is there a filter for that crap yet? I want a filter that will completely ignore any and all levels with the words ‘trophy’ or ‘trophies’ in them. That can’t be that hard, can it?


+ DonnyG on July 22nd, 2009 at 9:03 am said:

Very good to hear. I’m planning on finishing another level or two pretty soon.


+ whatisdelicious on July 22nd, 2009 at 9:04 am said:

You guys need to list what levels those were, or more specifically, the one with the excellent art style that had text like “GRAB” and “DANGER.”


+ remanutd5 on July 22nd, 2009 at 9:05 am said:

congrats MM the game is a success , isnt GamesCon starting on August 18th???


+ inveigle on July 22nd, 2009 at 9:12 am said:



+ TuxBobble on July 22nd, 2009 at 9:13 am said:

Ugh, I can’t stand the bogus trophy levels. I refuse to make one, personally. And THAT is why I can’t get my create trophy. I can’t get anything to stay on the front page long enough with all those bogus levels around!!!

: ( I just want my LAST TROPHY in LBP…


+ Armyless on July 22nd, 2009 at 9:15 am said:

1 Million Creations!

And a massive number of great levels being clogged up by crappy levels. They either need to allow users to properly advertise their creations, or find a way to make the trash levels disappear.


+ jo231sh on July 22nd, 2009 at 9:21 am said:



+ kuff1 on July 22nd, 2009 at 9:25 am said:

Great news!

And I can’t wait for the online create mode to be released August 18th! ;)


+ eaferrari24 on July 22nd, 2009 at 9:36 am said:

i wonder how many of those are H4H levels :P

anyways congrats.. i have seen some amazing levels that people have made.

looking forward to aug 18th


+ bravo9zero on July 22nd, 2009 at 9:40 am said:

Any chance you could add Custom music(Via XMB)to the game?
While playing Single player and online levels.

Would be a BIG “thank you” too us, for making those levels :)


+ thepatriots on July 22nd, 2009 at 9:42 am said:

LBP will go down in the history of video games as one of the most innovative and original games ever made. There are a very few games that have made this mark, Metal Gear on NES, GT on the PS1, Half Life on the PC, and now LBP on the PS3. Thank all the people at MM and Sony that made this game possible. When we are all playing PS5’s or whatever I will always remember LBP. Hopefully it becomes a franchise that continues long into the future.


+ Wilw15 on July 22nd, 2009 at 9:46 am said:

1 000 000 Levels and 244 000 000 played Parties !! These figures are really incredible !!

I have only ONE level edited, called :

“A nice walk in Little Big Adventure” by Wilw15

and only less than 100 parties played on it by users. (BUT TRY IT PLEASE !! this level is not so bad 8-D )

It is my low contribution to this really very very good game !!

Hope to see new Media Molecule Levels released the August 18th …


+ LuckyJuve on July 22nd, 2009 at 9:46 am said:

+ Ausohoj on July 22nd, 2009 at 9:48 am said:

+ depward on July 22nd, 2009 at 9:49 am said:

You deserve this kind of recognition. LBP is an incredible game; here’s to even more continued success!

+ piro_z on July 22nd, 2009 at 10:12 am said:

It’s great to be apart of it but who published the one millionth level?


+ radman123 on July 22nd, 2009 at 10:12 am said:

Online Create???


+ Aggilus on July 22nd, 2009 at 10:16 am said:

I have the game and I’m eager to create my level


+ TRIX_BOL on July 22nd, 2009 at 10:35 am said:

Glad we have contributed to reach 1 million community levels. Congratulations to every community member, Media molecule and specially to Sackboy. :-)

Could anyboy help, how can I manage to sit Sackboy (like at the end of the video)?


+ ski_bumm on July 22nd, 2009 at 10:36 am said:

Congrats LBP creators!

Sadly though, if you’re like me you’ve put >100 hours into creating levels, but only have ~20 people who have ever played them. :( Very frustrating.

Who wouldn’t want to play “Sackboy’s Ski School”??


+ ski_bumm on July 22nd, 2009 at 10:37 am said:

Also, you should really raise the “level creation limit”, I hit the thing every damn time!


+ ZAANOS on July 22nd, 2009 at 10:50 am said:

Grats guys I’ve been playing it last few days. Had the game since launch but I finnaly started working on custom levels. Created a Tumbler/Batmobile. It’s up on YouTube under Little Big Tumbler.


+ Enforcer_X on July 22nd, 2009 at 10:51 am said:

YEAH Sackboy CEO of LBP!

Congrats to Sackboy, LBP, MM and all the creators!


+ TRIX_BOL on July 22nd, 2009 at 10:59 am said:

I hope the guys at Media Molecule annaunce a Final Fantasy level-kit around August 18th!

We have been waiting to see ‘Sepiroth and more FF characters’ appearance in LBP, but with a lovely LEVEL-PACK.
