Media Molecule co-founder Alex Evans has revealed a few of their plans for LittleBigPlanet, including a new web-based level-sharing portal and a beta test for upcoming features. And what’s this? The PSP version of LBP is just “the first game”? More after the jump.
Media Molecule co-founder Alex Evans has revealed that they will soon be launch a web-based LittleBigPlanet portal where users can advertise their levels and queue downloads for the next time they play the game.
In an interview with 1Up, Evans explained that the portal will let players simply send other LBP players a custom link to their levels to make sharing easier. “Rather than going on forums and saying, ‘Please search for my level,’ you can just say, ‘Here’s a link’,” Evans said.
The portal will also have leaderboards, photos, comments, and an API that can be used to create LBP-related apps. The portal and the API are undergoing beta tests and will be launched “as soon as possible”.
Evans also revealed that a new, ongoing beta test is in the works for LBP. This will let players try out new features before they’re rolled out. Another interesting thing Evans mentioned pertains to the PSP version of LBP, which he calls “the first game”. Hmm. An LBP PSP series? Sounds good, Mr. Evans.
