UPDATE: Congratulations to Marcus Dan, the winner of our LittleBigPlanet Creation contest. You’ll soon receive an e-mail with detailed instructions regarding your prize package. We mustn’t forget our runner up, Mayowa Ojo; the same goes for you. We received solid entries all around, but our two winners stood above the pack in terms of effort and creativity. Well done everyone.
CONTEST: Member Spotlights. Theme of the week. Did you think we’d stop there? In an ongoing attempt to keep our members satiated, we at PSU have decided to host a contest. Thanks to the gracious people over at Thrustmaster, we are in possession of several goodies that we’d like to pass on to a lucky winner, as well as a little something for the runner up. Interested? Read on to find out more.
With the release of LittleBigPlanet coming later this year, we have decided to have our members create a rough sketch of the first LBP level you plan on creating, in addition to providing information detailing what everything is and how it works. You can do this digitally on your computer, or if you prefer, you can do it with pencil and paper and scan it or take a picture to send to us.
We will judge not solely on design, but on originality, style, humor and so on. This ensures that users who aren't very good at drawing either digitally or by hand are given a fair chance. For information on rules, available prizes and how to submit your work see below.
Only one submission per person (UPDATE: If this rule is broken, only the first entry we view will count, even if the second is better!)
Submitting Your Design
Please send your design and level information to eric (DOT) blattberg@psu (DOT) com
The grand prize winner will receive a PlayStation 3 remote along with a USB wi-fi key (USD 85 value) and the runner up winner will receive a USB wi-fi key (USD 44 value) as well.
All contestant designs need to be submitted to eric (DOT) blattberg@psu (DOT) com with the subject 'PSU Contest'. Contest ends April 13 at 12:00 AM EST.
We wish all participants the very best of luck!

I might be a kill joy but i think Little Big Planet is going to be a big Turkey. It looks dreadful! Very childish. Can't see this being a success. Its waaaay over hyped guys! Good luck with your designs-they will probably be much better than the game! ;)

This open to European userbase .... or do we have to wait for an update :P

mike3648.....i'm sorry but that has to be one of the stupidest things I have ever heard! Good luck with your designs - they will probly be much better than the game!
You idiot they are the game!

@kevsmyname89 - HAHAHAHAH, WORD! Anyway, sounds very interesting. Can't wait to see what you guys come up with. I would like to participate, but I don't really know what the game will allow you to do. P.S. I'm the Super Smash Bros. Brawl Level Creator God.

@ mike3648: I guess Echochrome will fail too because people will have to think too much, or use their brains in general.
- 1:19am EDT - April 2nd, 2008
@ infernoreaper-I feel games like Little Big Planet and Echochrome are better off on last gen consoles and not on a Next Gen Console. They don't really push the boundaries for me. If thats what you like, then good luck to ya. @ kevsmyname89- i was being sarcastic...of course I know the games are the design!
- 6:18am EDT - April 2nd, 2008
ahhh the sweet sound of sarcasm, the lowest form of wit which hardly anyone ever gets!
- 7:29pm EDT - April 2nd, 2008
does this count as a submission?
(:)--|=< see it has arms and legs if you look at it sideways....

- 5:11pm EDT - April 5th, 2008

@mike3648: im pretty sure this will be one of the greatest physics based games you will ever play. Not to metion the hours of fun you can have with three other friends creating and playing in your own world. The game will appeal to a wide audience and wives and girlfriends from all age groups all over the world will be playing this game.
