Sony Europe Executive Mentions "LittleBigPlanet 2"
We've often heard whispers about a follow-up to LittleBigPlanet, despite the insistent claims by Media Molecule that producing a sequel would be "counterproductive."
And the latest piece of evidence is sure to spark new discussions concerning the possibility of a LBP2. According to a video interview posted at Game-Vid and reported on by Dutch tech site Tweakers, PlayStation Marketing Manager for Sony Benelux, Folkert Langeveld, may have accidentally confirmed a sequel. He was talking about the future of PlayStation Move; that it will support big-name titles like SOCOM 4 and, in Dutch, "LittleBigPlanet Twee," which translates to "LittleBigPlanet 2." Now, this could just be a mistake for multiple reasons: firstly, Sony and Media Molecule have been pretty clear about their stance on the issue; they will continue to build on the ever-expanding world of LBP and as a result, a sequel would be unnecessary. Secondly, we know LBP will be compatible with Move and perhaps this is what Langeveld was referring to. We probably won't know unless Sony comes forward and clarifies the issue.
The question is, do you want to see a sequel? Or would you rather they simply continue to offer new content for the original? Perhaps they could take the platformer in a slightly new direction with a follow-up? Or would that be a bad idea...?
