After a reported Distributed Denial-of-Service attack, the LittleBigPlanet servers are still down.

The LittleBigPlanet servers have run into one hell of a LittleBigProblem when it comes to their servers. 

The puzzle platform game franchise, created by Media Molecule and published by Sony, has had its servers shut down on all the titles still in action, leaving many fans around the world cuddling their Sackboy teddies and waiting for the return of his on-screen cinematic. That's a LittleBitSad - I wonder how many of these I can squeeze in...

Starting on March 12, the developers sent out a tweet to their fan base to say "The LBP servers have been taken offline whilst we investigate some technical issues. We are trying to bring them back online as soon as we can," but little did they know that six weeks down the line that they will yet to have been switched back on. 

Despite being only referred to as "technical" and "server" issues, it is heavily reported that one sour fan has launched a DDoS assault (Distributed Denial-of-Service), seemingly as a result of Sackboy's development over the years that has strayed away from the rustic stringy texture that first rose to popularity in 2008.

The developers have continued to update fans with messages that they're working hard to get the servers up and running, yet little avail has been reached yet.

Luckily for LittleBigPlanet fans, there are a wealth of party games that can be enjoyed at the moment across multiple platforms.


Whilst Sackboy takes a well-needed nap, players can filter over to the likes of Crash Bandicoot: On the Run!, or even the 2016 Ratchet & Clank title ahead of the release of Rift Apart on June 11.
