LittleBigPlanet aces score dream jobs

How two fans landed Media Molecule roles.

For any youngsters reading, here's something to show your parents next time they tell you to turn the games console off and do your homework.

A rather heart-warming mini-documentary posted on the PlayStation Blog today reveals how two top LittleBigPlanet players, neither of whom had any prior industry experience, scored dream jobs at developer Media Molecule.

The film shows how Frenchman Christophe gave up his career at an advertising agency following a job offer from the LittleBigPlanet studio and now commutes from Paris to London every week.

Then there's former builder, kayak enthusiast and disaster-magnet John, who scored a job when the developer spotted his amazing custom levels.

The full, cockle-warming clip is reproduced below for your viewing convenience – take a look.

Should you be interested, the same blog post also has details of various new costume packs in the works for LittleBigPlanet 2. Keep an eye open for Tron, Killzone 3 and Move Heroes-themed add-ons in the next few weeks.
