As is the case with many online-integrated games these days, the LittleBigPlanet
servers appear to have imploded by the weight of a large influx of gamers trying to play, create and share. According to Media Molecule
, "the servers are down while we try to fix the glitching issues some players have experienced. They will be back online as soon as we have fixed the problem."
While many are eager to jump online, let's not forget that these kind of issues are sadly common during the first few weeks of a product launch. (Examples: SOCOM
, Metal Gear Online
, GTA IV
) Hopefully, it won't be too long until things are sorted out.
