TGS 09: "29 Years" Required To Complete All LBP Content

Sony's press conference at the Tokyo Game Show has started, and Kaz Hirai - lookin' good in that spiffy suit and salmon pink shirt - has kicked things off with LittleBigPlanet.

He has started by talking about the importance of growing online communities and the eight corresponding elements (watch, create, communication, learn, listen, play, share and discover), and in so doing, he has let a few very cool statistics slip. I mean...these are mind-boggling. There are already over 2 million pieces of user-generated content in the game, which means it would take over "29 years" to play it all! That's a statistic we could never have imagined even ten years ago, but Hirai and Co. insist upon the PlayStation Network's expansion, and LBP has always been a great multiplayer and community generator. If you didn't already know, Sony will be replacing the standard version with the Game of the Year Edition of LittleBigPlanet and it boasts about $30 worth of extra content from the Store. But hey, if we're talking about 2 million pieces of added content, all created by your fellow gaming brethren, just think about how much more you can do with Sackboy once you really get involved? The longevity of this bad boy just keeps rising and rising so if you don't already have LBP in your collection, now's the time.

Okay, they're moving on to the PS3 Slim and the upcoming holiday lineup, so stick close to your seats everyone.

An fine example of endless replay value, that didn't sell me on the game initially. It was the innovation, and everything it did right.

Great game, but 29 years? I dunno, I mean just because 1 game takes 10 minutes to play through doesn't mean another will. Are they like testing out each one and saying that or are they just saying each level takes 5 minutes add it all up and boom? lol

They are probably making an educated guess or what you said.

...and in 29 years, when you think you've finished them all, you just know some wise-ass will have made another!
