Media Molecule Developing A New "AAA" PS3 Exclusive
Last year's LittleBigPlanet was a favorite amongst critics and swept the competition away at the AIAS awards a few months ago. Now, the capable team behind that masterpiece is hard at work on another PlayStation 3 title.
According to PS3Center, a recent job posting at Media Molecule has opened our eyes to their new project: a "groundbreaking, AAA PS3 title for Sony Computer Entertainment." They seek a programmer for the game and most people are automatically assuming it's a sequel to the aforementioned award-winner, but up until now, we had only heard about LBP for the PSP. We have also heard Media Molecule talk about the ongoing support Sackboy and Co. would receive through DLC on the PSN; theoretically, there is no limit to what they can do with that game. Therefore, some are postulating that we have no real need of a sequel as the original can continue to expand and grow. If the latter group of skeptics prove to be correct, what might Media Molecule be working on? They really started something with this whole "Create, Play, Share" philosophy; ModNation Racers is the second title - announced during Sony's E3 press conference - to embrace the idea, and we can only assume the LBP developers are going to say within that realm. In other words, we're not really expecting a big ol' FPS from MM. That would just seem...bizarre.
Anyway, we'll let you know when Media Molecule and/or Sony decide to lift the lid on this promising title, but we're certain all you LBP fans are drooling right about now. We could be talking about the next great PS3 exclusive...
