The main draw of the LittleBigPlanet games is the ability to create levels and share them with the world, allowing for something new to be experienced all the time. In the past hardware limitations of the PS3 have meant that levels could only be a certain size, but now Tom O’Connor of Sony XDev has spoken to the PlayStation Blogcast about the PS4 version and how levels can be stitched together.
“No longer are you locked by your thermometer. You can now stitch levels together, so your levels, basically, are as big as the hard drive in your PS4.”
There’s not much information on how stitching works or how it’ll transfer to the PS3 version, where levels on created on PS4 can still be played. Though levels that could in theory be between 1GB to almost 500GB in size, even more if a bigger hard drive is present, is a rather big treat for creators who want to expand their stages as much as possible. The PS4 version of LittleBigPlanet 3 will also allow for people to make trailers for their levels.
