Here’s a nice round figure for you: The LittleBigPlanet community have in total created over one million creations since the game launched at the end of last year.

The problem with games based on movies (based on comics) is that the story of the new film quite often consists of a linear progression.
Trying to make a game around this fixed pattern can be a nightmare; especially when you consider the need for games to proffer almost constant interaction to gamers.

You’re going to be busy.
We’ve been looking forward to the first expansion pack to release for PSN hit title WipEout HD for some time. Well it looks like the waiting is nearly up as SCEE have announced that Fury will be available to download on the 23rd of July.

The Beatles have composed over 200 songs so narrowing down the list to 45 for their upcoming version of Rock Band could be a difficult task.

Which has to be the easiest tie-in ever…
If you’ve been wondering what off-beat film director Spike Jonze has been up to since getting inside John Malkovich’s head (and creating fictional twins for Nicolas Cage for that matter), his new film “Where The Wild Things Are” is scheduled for a winter release.
An off-kilter children’s tale with magical companions and bizarre imagery, Warner Bros. have announced that a game tie-in will also accompany the movie this December.
In case you were wondering, that spells “Retro/Grade Coming to PS3″ in reverse. No we’re not crazy, but perhaps the people at 24 Carat Games are.
You see, they have devised a game that you play in reverse! The game stars fighter pilot Rick Rocket and he has just saved the universe. Only problem is, he reversed the flow of time from all of that destruction. Now, it’s your opportunity to fight through space and time…backwards of course.
