Molyneux: LittleBigPlanet Is "Most Creative Innovation Of 2008"
We've all had our beefs with Peter Molyneux over the past few years - Fable was fun, but it didn't actually turn out to be the "greatest RPG of all time" - but even he must be considered an industry professional.
According to a recent interview with GamesIndustry.biz, Molyneux has stepped forward to praise what he believes to be "the most creative innovation of 2008 in the Creative and Business International Network's review of the creative economy:" LittleBigPlanet. Now, first of all, we would like to remind you that PSXE also awarded LBP our "Most Original" title of 2008, and it's good to know we're not the only ones. Said Molyneux:
"LittleBigPlanet has outstanding creative vision. It's from a British start-up studio and is one of the defining titles on Japan's Sony PS3."
Not sure why he pointed out that Media Molecule is a British studio, but maybe that means something. Anyway, most will agree that LBP was a momentous achievement, and we only wish the developers were rewarded with more sales. 1.3 million copies sold isn't bad, certainly, but this is the type of title that really deserved a number at least double that amount, and we'd like to think the sales will continue to increase. After all, this is one game that won't show its age all that easily, and although it may rise slowly, it should still remain relevant for a very long time.
