Digital Foundry| Little Big Planet 2 Tech Interview

In Digital Foundry's last Saturday feature before the onslaught of E3, we talk to one of Media Molecule's tech masterminds, Alex Evans, about the origins of the company's association with Sony and how they got to grips with unique PlayStation 3 architecture.

We also go in-depth on the make-up of the proprietary engines that power both LittleBigPlanet and its forthcoming, hugely anticipated sequel.

Nice interview. Digital Foundry interviews are always informative.

On topic, I heard LBP2 was using the GOW3 lighting engine. Great to read it's gonna use MLAA technique. Gosh I hope KZ3 uses the same as well in fact all Sony first party should use it, it gives a much nicer and consistent picture. Also great to hear that all the previous LBP1 levels will also get the graphical updates with MLAA...

I Digital Foundry interviews are great glad to see they are using MLAA Hope Multiplatform studios start using it on PS3 as well

LBP2 uses its own lighting engine but uses the same MLAA technique from GOW3.

It only has MLAA in common, which is not a lighting technique. It now has a forward renderer, like GOW3, tho, but it employs a world-space volumetric based lighting solution (unlike screen space solution which cannot account for offscreen objects)

This game has GOTY written all over it.

I bought the first one because me kid really wanted it. After "teaching" her some basic controls, she had to wrestle the controller from me. It got to the point she made me leave the room when she played because when I saw her die I would "offer" my assistance. That got old for her real quick.

"I knew that we'd have these six SPU processors, and I'd heard rumours (incorrect in detail, helpful in spirit) that the vertex pipe was weak on the GPU. That doesn't really count as research, but it was enough of a nudge to just force us to build an engine where all the vertices are pushed through SPU."
