We know you waited patiently in your Sackboy costume at the LittleBigPlanet 2 launch party in New York City, as the newly released game set a whopping 5 Guinness World Records in its bid to succeed LittleBigPlanet (which sold a respectable 4.2 million copies worldwide – 2.2 million in North America).
Despite all the post-launch commotion, and record setting, Media Molecule has offered to let gamers take a look inside their studio – a studio that has brought players one of Sony’s most recognizable franchises.
Filmed just before LittleBigPlanet 2 went gold, this wonderful video takes us inside a studio that can only be described as every game fan’s dream company.

James Spafford, Media Molecule’s Community Manager, leads us through Media Molecule in an interesting look at a very special developer:
