It was announced today that LittleBigPlanet will have a Facebook style tagging feature. This new feature will add to the array of social networking features already implemented into the game and help players maintain a type of online persona. Players will be able to take pictures whilst in game and subsequently add tags to them. This will also allow players to keep a track of their friends as well as cool things they see online from other players. These pictures will also be used in a ‘feed’ system which is also being implemented. Hit the jump to see what Alex Evans had to say about the feature in his interview with GamesIndustry.biz

“You’ll have feeds of photos of you – levels that you’ve been in, photos people have taken of you,”. “Then we take it even further, like Facebook. In any photos we know what kind of Sackboys were in it, who they were logged in as, so we put a box around their face which you can click and go and see that person. So if there’s a cool level with a guy wearing an awesome costume, you just D-pad up to him and hit X, and now you can see his levels, his favorites.”

With this level of interactivity, customisation and now social networking could LBP do for games what Facebook do for the internet? We’ll have to wait until October to find out.
