LittleBigPlanet receives much praise from SCEE event

Media Molecules’ forthcoming PlayStation 3 exclusive LittleBigPlanet has been labelled as one of the most “important” videogame releases to date, according to feedback from a Sony Europe press tour this week.

According to Videogaming247, one attendee was quoted saying, “It’s going to be the most important game ever,” adding, “It’s just astonishing. “

The comments come following an exclusive, two-hour hands-on with the game earlier this week, where press members were given access to the full single player mode, level editor and “everything else”.

Although the game was reported to have crashed multiple times during the event, observers noted that it still played remarkably smoothly nonetheless.

“I think it’s literally bug-stomping now,” said one source. “The game is astoundingly smooth.”

Media Molecule recently announced that the title had entered the Alpha stage of its development cycle.

LittleBigPlanet is due for release in September 2008.
