Word from a SCEE press tour for LittleBigPlanet this week says Media Molecule has come up with something very special indeed in LittleBigPlanet.

“It’s going to be the most important game ever,” said an attendee. “It’s just astonishing. ”

The press was given two hours hands-on with the PS3 game, including full access to single-player, the level editor and “everything else”.

Our source says the code was still fairly flaky and crashed multiple times during the session – the developer recently said it was entering the alpha stage of development – but that the game itself was looking robust.

“I think it’s literally bug-stomping now,” said our man. “The game is astoundingly smooth.”

LittleBigPlanet has no fixed date at the moment aside from “September”.
