LittleBigWorkshop Launches, Image Import Tool Rumor Denied

Most who have fallen in love with LittleBigPlanet - and there are lots of new lovers out there - will want to get the most out of SackBoy and Co. Hence, pay attention to the freshly launched LittleBigWorkshop!

The site offers just about everything you could want: game information (trailers, exclusive artwork and screenshots, etc.), LittleBigNews (user generated level spotlights, developers news, etc.), forums, a nifty Sticker Room, and of course, the main highlight: the CREATE section. Dive in and move through the Blueprint, Workshop, and Inspiration Rooms to create the finest content your eager imagination can produce. You can even upload your own videos and photos in the Inspiration Room, which should give others the hint that they oughta flex their minds once in a while! There's a SHARE section, too, where you can create your own LBP profile and contribute to the growing community. The game has gone through the roof since it launched back in October, despite the small delay that will henceforth go unexplained. We had enough of that news then; now, we're looking forward to endless fun with LittleBigPlanet!

By the way, the rumor that an Image Import Tool is on the way was shot down by Sony. Alex Evans popped up in the official PlayStation boards to leave the following post:

"There are a couple of these rumours flying around today, so to clear things up - image importing is very much technically viable which may have been what Alex is referring to, however there are currently no plans to introduce it for a variety of reasons. Announcements of future content releases, whether free, paid for, feature update, costume, sticker or whatever will always come through the official websites for LittleBigPlanet and Media Molecule, if you hear of updates through any other source please take it with a pinch of salt until it has been confirmed or denied.

Right now there are no plans to introduce image importing to the game, and we’ll update if that changes."

That's a pity. I guess it's a way to stop pornography and stuff.

Wait so you can't import images from your PS3 HDD into the game, poo (yes that was edited...) that really hits a limitation to the game, i was looking forward to many nights of photoshop editing thinsg and then putting them in the game.... I thought this was spose to be in the game originally, i wastched a live demonstration video where the guy said you could do that........ I'm not happy.

You can still use the PSeye. You just can't import images from your XMB. So, you're ok.

You can, but it looks horrible. It's very grainy. I bought one just for this game, and wanna return it.

Is anyone able to get a good picture with the PSEye?

I think mostly it is for copyright infringement much more than porn, but im sure that is an issue as well.

A quote from The gdc07 Gameplay Demonstration:

"So i open up my inventory, Stcikers are just images that i could have imported from my HDD..."

the cost of LBP is piling up if the PSEye is necessary to import images. wonder if it'll be worth it.

This is for copyright reasons, so people can't use copyrighted pictures. But taking picture of something copyrighted apparently is okay.

I know it sounds weird, but that is one of the reasons.

Is anyone else still having a lot of lag in the online play or is something wrong with my internet?

This looks like fun. :3
I still can't seem to make a good level though...

Then make a really crappy level and publish it anyways! That's what I did when the beta was about to close. I called my level "Stupid Duck Rockets!" and told everyone in the description how dumb the stage was. But still, plenty of people have played it and said it was fun. :)
