Sony have been doing some business as of late buying Media Molecule and fixing the whole “My PS3 has died ETC ETC ETC clock thingy”.

Oh yeah did I just say that Sony have fully taken over Media Molecule? Yeah, they just did that like today sometime.

So that means that Media Molecule is now fully part of the big Sony family.

Sony Europe Studios boss Michael Denny says there’s much more in the pipeline, and then posted an extensive list of awards won by LittleBigPlanet to further justify the move.

“The most important thing is that nothing will change from your perspective; Media Molecule will simply continue to make great games. Welcoming Media Molecule into the PlayStation family will allow us to better support their future titles and ambitions.”

Media Molecule commented on the sale in the official press release.

“Since Media Molecule’s inception, we’ve had a uniquely close relationship with Sony. Over the years they have consistently shown their dedication to Creative Gaming and Media Molecule, not only through their support of the company, but their willingness to take risks and embrace our often unusual approach and ideas.” said Alex Evans, co-founder of Media Molecule. “What we’ve achieved already with LittleBigPlanet has proved this to us and we’re excited by this new chapter of innovation and creative gaming, for all involved.”
