Local News Uncovers Shocking Adult Content In LittleBigPlanet 2

In 2011, Sony released LittleBigPlanet 2 for the PlayStation 3. Two years later, California’s News10 uncovers the startling truth behind its misleading “E for Everyone” rating.

Give players the tools to create their own game content, and sooner or later there’s going to be a penis, a phenomenon Stephen Totilo’s hard-hitting investigative report from earlier this year explored.

LittleBigPlanet 2 users were given much more than simple drawing tools. With the ability to tweak animations, create custom scenery, and add voice and sound clips to their custom levels, we would be completely drowning in LittleBigPorno if not for the game’s moderation team — a team that’s obviously not infallible.

  • Haha, that’s one of the most sensationalized videos I’ve ever seen. From the “This report contains graphic content” with everything blurred out and nothing that graphic. To the “You don’t think it’s a sexual predator, somebody trying to go after children.”

    It’s user based content, making it inevitable that someone (in fact probably most people) will attempt to create something sexual in nature.

    Many of us drew penises in our school books – but we were hardly ‘sexual predators’ when we were 13.


  • I didn’t see any problems with that report. It mentioned the fact that the rating system can’t deal with user generated content, and it told parents what they could do.

    • I think the derision is stemming from the fact that 1) the game is several years old, and 2) that it’s not immediately obvious to everyone that when given tools to create content, and an audience, there will be penis.

  • I lasted until:

    “You don’t think it’s a sexual predator? Someone looking to go after children?”
