LittleBigPlanet Hits 3.6 Million Online Levels and Has a New Contest

LittleBigPlanet 2 released recently and thanks to the previous LBP title and the LBP community, there are now more than 3.6 million levels that have been uploaded to the PlayStation Network. More details, and a contest, after the jump.

LBP2 released to accolades from all over the gaming world, including from our reviewer as well. This number of levels includes creations from LBP1 and LBP2, the majority coming from LBP1, but that will certainly change as players continue to check out LBP2. With all of the new tools, and additions, the number will continue to grow exponentially.

On to the details of the contest as brought to you by our friends at the PlayStation Blog:

As we mentioned earlier, this level is the focal point for a “create your own level” contest which officially begins today. Play our “LittleBigPrius” level to collect prize bubble items, and use these items to create your own Prius-inspired level. When you publish your level to the world, be sure to name it “Prius_ …” so that it will be easy for everyone to find.

Make sure that you get your level built and published prior to the conclusion of the contest at midnight on March 8th. That’s when we’ll take a close look at the 10 most popular levels, as determined by the LittleBigPlanet community. We’ll be judging these levels based upon originality, quality and polish, Toyota Prius brand awareness, and use of the items obtained from our “LittleBigPrius” level. From these finalists, we’ll pick a Grand Prize winner of a 46” Sony Bravia 3D HDTV and PlayStation Move hardware bundle. We’ll also select four First Place winners of a PlayStation Move Sports Champions bundle.

Read up on the full contest details here. And good luck!

The world of LittleBigPlanet just keeps getting better and better!
