Got PlayTV for your PlayStation 3? Planning to buy LittleBigPlanet? If Media Molecule co-founder Mark Healey gets his way, you could end up watching last night's Eastenders in-game and pasting stickers all over Ian Beale's smug face.

Having recently picked up PlayTV, the box that gives PlayStation 3 users access to Freeview channels and PVR functionality, Healey would love to take advantage of it with his studio's imminent sandbox game.

"Just recently I bought the PlayTV, because I had to swap cables every time," he said in an exclusive interview with Eurogamer TV. "That made me think last night, we should just integrate that into LittleBigPlanet. Why not? If you've got a PlayTV box, it must be possible to watch TV within your Pod.

"How cool is it to just watch TV with people online with your Sackboy, and vandalise the TV with stickers, for example? There's lots of random ideas like that I'd like us to explore. I don't know if that's possible but I'm sure it must be."

Sounds pretty damned cool to us. Make it so, Sony. LittleBigPlanet's out on 24th October. Check out our exclusive LittleBigPlanet Expert Walkthrough to see how the developers use audio tools in their levels, and look out for the next instalment later today.
