Media Molecule wishes everyone a very happy 2011


This year has been a very full on one here at the Molecule. Not only have we spent many long days and nights here designing, creating & finalising LittleBigPlanet 2, the Molecule family has also grown -  celebrating four marriages,  two engagements, four babies, and one more baby on the way. It’s lovely to see our small team grow :)

We have tried our best to attend as many shows as we could this year, and it was exciting that so many of these were also community events, giving us the chance to meet some of the incredible and creative people that love LittleBigPlanet!

This week is especially emotional for us, as LittleBigPlanet 2 has ‘gone gold’, meaning the game is 100% finished!  We also just received our very first review score - a very pleasing 10/10 from the Official PlayStation Magazine in the UK, and on that note, It’s our pleasure for me to announce that LittleBigPlanet 2 will be out on the following dates around the world…

  • 18th January - Americas
  • 19th January - Mainland Europe
  • 20th January - Australia and New Zealand
  • 21st January - UK and Ireland

Needless to say we have opened champagne & smoked cigars in the snow :) We are so proud of everyone here, and we’d especially like to thank all of our team for all the incredibly hard and brilliant work that they have put in this year, and to take this opportunity to thank our families and friends for being wonderfully supportive throughout the whole process.  Our team at Sony also deserve special mention - THANK YOU :)

Lastly, thanks to all of YOU. The Media Molecule & LittleBigPlanet communities keep us motivated, inspired and excited. Thank you for your all of your efforts and participation, it’s been a lot of fun so far, and we are VERY excited about you getting your hands on LittleBigPlanet2. You are sure to blow our minds with your creations even more than the first time round!

That’s it from us! We hope everyone has a wonderful end of 2010 - and enjoys a happy, healthy and deliciously brilliant 2011.

Lots of Love,
Siobhan, Alex, David, Mark & Kareem

We managed to grab whoever was willing for a quick, embarrassing session of SingStar. Here for your viewing pleasure…
