LittleBigPlanet revolves around the player's control of a small character, known as a "Sackboy", in a variety of platforming levels. Though the game features a set of pre-built levels for the player to explore, the game's customisable nature is equally important, from altering the player's character and personal space, to building entirely new objects and levels (user-generated content), sharing and playing them online with other players as part of the LittleBigPlanet community. It was announced in March 2007, by Phil Harrison at the Game Developers Conference.

The game received critical acclaim from critics and has been praised for its presentation, including its graphics, physics, and audio, along with its gameplay and large array of customisable costumes and online features. Additional praise was given to its scope and future potential based on user-created content; minor criticism was reserved for specific elements of the gameplay mechanics and level creation facilities. LittleBigPlanet has won a number of awards. A PSP version of the game was released in November 2009, featuring new levels. The game was offered by Sony as a free download as part of their 'Welcome Back' program, following the PlayStation Network outage of 2011. A sequel, LittleBigPlanet 2 was released in 2011.


Only options that deviate from the default configuration to ensure best performance are listed below. The full list of default options is available here.

GPU configuration

Setting Option Notes
Anti-aliasing Disabled Fixes visual issues while in-game.
Write color buffers On Fixes horrible gas, smoke and fire.

Advanced configuration

Setting Option Notes
Silence all logs On Helps improve performance as this game tends to spam the log a lot.

Known Issues

Infinite Loading

This game must be updated to at least version 1.21 to prevent an infinite loading screen.

Pre-existing SPU cache impacts performance

Issue 10497 - There currently exists a regression with this game where loading the game with an SPU cache will impact performance. Silencing all logs will fix the performance, however clearing the SPU cache every time you boot the game will also work, and logs won't have to be silenced either.
