We’ve had a news tip come in from a Canadian reader who says that on February 23rd’s episode of the Canadian show EP Daily on G4 Tech TV (G4TechTv.ca), YouTube video uploading is hinted at coming to LittleBigPlanet.
Media Molecule’s Kareem Ettouney begins talking about how users of LittleBigPlanet want to share their level creating ideas:
A lot of people in the LittleBigPlanet World are really keen on showing off how they made their creations.
It’s an obvious need. You go on YouTube and see all those videos. Let’s give the users a tool that can stream the content and put it on YouTube.
Unfortunately there is no way we can verify this information as we cannot watch the video (without being in Canada), so if anyone wants to YouTube it for us, feel free!
You can watch the video here!
Other games that utilise the PS3’s access to the YouTube API include PixelJunk Eden, PixelJunk Monsters and the recent (and frankly awesome) Noby Noby Boy. YouTube API integration for PlayStation 3 titles was first announced last May. The ability to upload game play videos to YouTube has proved popular with players, allowing them to share techniques in completing the most difficult of levels. It would be a very fitting and welcome addition to LittleBigPlanet.
Thanks to Mark C from Canada for sending this in.
