Media Molecule's Alex Evans has told Gamesindustry.biz that LittleBigPlanet is an exclusive to the PlayStation 3, because it would not have been possible to make it on the Xbox 360, as it was designed around the PS3's strengths.
"With LBP as it is, we couldn't have made it on the Xbox 360 and the reason for that is actually because we designed it around the PS3's strengths," said Evans.
"In other words, if you're a game designer, from day one you know your platform, and you just cane it on that platform. You're not worrying about cross-platform, you're not worrying about anyone else's hardware design."
Although Evan did say that if an Xbox 360 version was made, it would have to be changed to fit with the systems design.
