"When presented with a new tool, people will re-create the familiar. We saw that in "Guitar Hero: World Tour"'s music creation and it's happening in LittleBigPlanet, too.

I think the re-creations appeal to our retro factor, but the best levels I've played have been original levels.

Although, the Gradius level is fantastic.
