LBP2 To Support Mouse And Keyboard

Media Molecule's Mark Healey has confirmed that the powerful creation tools in LittleBigPlanet 2 can be controlled via a mouse and keyboard

Explaining why MM use the good old PS3 controller to create levels rather than a PC development suite, Creative Director  Healey told NowGamer: "The funny thing is that the PC tools we were using were quite crap, to be honest, a pain in the arse, and it got to the point where the pop-it in Create mode was actually much better."

"Obviously, we’ve really embraced that now, and from scratch [on LBP2] we’ve only been using that to create stuff," added the Media Molecule man. "Which is the obvious thing to do really because it forces us to make the improvements that mean you can do things better and faster, so it’s real-time playtesting of it, if you like. But something we’ve also added is keyboard and mouse support for the PS3, so you can draw things and navigate Pop-it with a mouse and stuff."

“We've also added keyboard and mouse support”

Asked about the expansion of the PSN to PC platforms Healey said: "I didn’t even know that... that’s cool. That’s interesting. That’s quite exciting. You’ve just opened a little door in my brain. That sounds like something cool for the future I think..."
