LBP Dev Hiring For "Different Projects On Different Platforms"

We all know Media Molecule for their widely esteemed and highly entertaining LittleBigPlanet franchise.

But they won't work on the very same series forever and ever, right? It may be safe to assume we're getting LittleBigPlanet 3 at some point, and we know the Vita iteration is on the way, but what else might the talented developer have in the works?

Well, according to OPM UK citing some new job listings, the team might actually be looking forward to the new generation...but that might be a stretch, given the wording. All we know is that it's a new "AAA project" and they're using a "small, multi-discipline team" for the time being. One available position says the successful applicant will be working on "different projects on different platforms." Well, Sony owns these guys, so are we looking at the PS3 and Vita, or is the PS4 involved somehow?

If you're interested, they're looking for an experienced Gameplay Programmer, UI Designer, 3D Animator, Audio Programmer, and Lead Audio Designer. This is one of those studios we'd love to see branch out, because they've already proven themselves immensely capable.

Interesting. I've been playing the first game. The one I got free because hackers attacked PSN. My daughters really love watching it. Sometimes I feel like the controls feel a bit too loose. Does LBP2 feel the same way?

lbp2 has better controls with the added gadgets. the gadgets just changed the game so much. the grapple gun gives you so much control over it. very worth playing and keeping.

Thanks fry, i'll probably try the demo out for that one as well. And if I can win this review contest I may just grab myself LBP2 =)

LBP2 is free right now with PS Plus, along with 11 other games.

Oh, and there are 2 different demos for LBP2 on the store (or there were, at least).

I will buy whatever these guys make without question. This is my dilemma, should they make another user generated content game, or should they focus their imagination and mechanics into making a awesome adventure or rpg?

Sony needs its own rpg, i think these guys have what it takes to make an rpg to rival the biggest rpgs out there. Image if we get a rpg like Skyrim or final fantasy with an epic story but the best part is that the community can make their own rpg adventure. You make the level, you make monters, the boss, the armor, you make the weapons, the stats, the story.

now that lbp 2 is free with ps+, do yourself a favor an check out some of the community levels they are amazing. To think that was only possible because of the level editor and infrastructure media molecule created, image what they are making next with an updated engine and a ps4... cant wait

I'd like to see MM make the same transition Naughty Dog did and bring their talents to something more grown up (not that adults can't enjoy LBP, I thought it was great) but you get my meaning.

I was referring to his point about MM transition to more adult content with their future games.

id love to see MM create a 3D world platformer something like super mario galaxy.
one thing ill never understand why no one has created a more ranged oriented 3D platformer!
we have so many more gritty adult games like uncharted and such, but we have very few more not kids but more ranged games.
especially considering how well SMG has sold!
why does $ony always have to copy the most boring overdone ideas?
there is a million and one smash brothers clones out their, why couldent they at least clone something different and imaginative!?
