I’ve just been browsing the interwebs looking for LBP and found this. Brain Ashcraft over at Kotaku posted a list of things he found out about the game at E3. I thought this was worthy content so I’d like to share it with you.

• The game will feature trophies.
• If two players of different levels play co-op together and one falls behind, that player will instantly die and respawn so the two players can keep up.
• There are over 60 tutorials that focus on creating.
• Because the Sony E3 press conference showed it was possible to embed text on objects, it will now be possible to do that in-game. (Media Molecule wants to make sure everything it’s now showing with LBP is actually possible for users to make.
• Originally, they planned to give players complete freedom of depth, but found that a richer experience could be gotten with only three layers of depth.
• If you use voice chat, Sack Boy will be lipsynched to your speech.
• The tags used to label level you create are pre-selected and were intially from LOL Cats. This has since been changed.
• Stephen Fry does voice over work for the create mode.
• It hasn’t been announced if you can import your own music into the game. Says Evans, “There’s no reason technically why not.”

Most of this is news to me. They got Stephen Fry, now that’s pretty cool. I can’t wait for trophies too!
