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.

Known Issues

Infinite Loading

Issue 8000: This game must be updated to at least version 1.21 to prevent an infinite loading screen. Demo versions of the game suffer from the same bug without any known workaround.

Special Notes

Game saves

Unlike other games, LBP stores saves in the Game Data Utility (dev_hdd0/game) instead of the Save Data Utility (dev_hdd0/home/<ID>/savedata). There is no known way of using encrypted saves.

As a workaround for save management, it is recommended to export/import profiles (start > settings > profile settings > import/export profile), that can be read from the Save Data Utility folder (dev_hdd0/home/<ID>/savedata).
