LittleBigPlanet Game Of The Year Edition Includes User Levels, DLC Packs

It might see like a formality at this point, but Sony has officially purchased LittleBigPlanet developer Media Molecule. The news broke at the PlayStation Blog earlier this morning.

"The decision was an easy one after meeting five young, talented people with a massive ambition to redefine video games as we know them," said Michael Denny, senior VP of Sony Worldwide Studios Europe in a statement, "followed by a fantastic exclusive relationship that culminated in the launch of one of the most innovative PlayStation games of recent years."

That game, of course, is LittleBigPlanet.

"The most important thing is that nothing will change from your [gamers] perspective," said Denny. "Media Molecule will simply continue to make great games. Welcoming Media Molecule into the PlayStation family will allow us to better support their future titles and ambitions."

Media Molecule has been steadily supplying downloadable content for LittleBigPlanet since it's launch, but the studio has been surprisingly under the radar. Seems we're due for something.
