LittleBigPlanet users have created 8 million levels

Media Molecule has confirmed via the PlayStation Blog that the LittleBigPlanet franchise has drummed up eight million user-generated levels.

The figure comes as the series approaches its fifth anniversary in October, and encompasses LittleBigPlanet, LBP2, LBP PSP and LBP Vita. Conspicuous by its absence is LBP Karting, though perhaps this is due to the fact MM only included the regular ‘platform’ entries.

LBP launched in 2008 as a PlayStation 3 exclusive, with main character SackBoy effectively becoming an unofficial mascot for Sony during this time.

Media Molecule however is shifting away from the franchise going forward, and its next project comes in the shape of the PS Vita-exclusive title Tearaway.
