In a update on the PlayStation.Blog, MediaMolecule has announced new search feature to be included in the PlayStation 3 version of LittleBigPlanet. The blog post also reiterated that a PSP version of LBP is in development, but will not affect downloadable content for the PlayStation 3 version. The new search features will allow gamers to search for specific levels using PSN IDs, as well as keyword search (see below for details). New downloadable content is also on the way, including Killzone 2, Buzz! Quiz and Heavenly Sword costumes.
How level search will work:
- @ searches for a specific author (e.g. @Sackboy)
- searches for words in a level’s title (e.g. PSP yields level names with "PSP" in it)
- ‘ ‘ (single quotes) will search for the input word on level titles and descriptions
- " " (double quotes) just like in search engines, searches for exact phrases
- You can combine these techniques for a more comprehensive search.
