LittleBigPlanet will have a free July 4th costume

Since 2008, MediaMolecule has been running promotions for free LittleBigPlanet costumes -- usually on holidays -- which is pretty impressive. On July 3rd of this year, anyone who owns the original two games or LittleBigP...

'Sackworm' missed the cut for LittleBigPlanet 3

I'm team Oddsock forever. It's just a super cute dog sack. I love it. I could take or leave the rest. Particularly a bird that makes platforming irrelevant. I guess LittleBigPlanet has always been creativity and co-op fi...

LittleBigPlanet 3 will also be coming to the PS3

LittleBigPlanet 3 looks amazingly adorable with Sackboy's three additional friends, and I enjoyed the fact that the E3 demonstration was a real demo and not staged. As far as we knew based on E3, LBP3 would support old l...

LittleBigPlanet 3 has three new playable characters
by Steven Hansen

Sony has some LittleBigPlanet 3 (PS4) footage and the biggest change in the series is the introduction of new character types alongside Sackyboy.

Oddsock runs on all fours and quickly. It can wall jump and burst through certain walls like Wario with his elbow. Toggle is a slower, stronger, heavier character, though it can make itself small with the push of a button, which sometimes allows you to spring Toggle upwards. The last, Swoop, seems to sort of break the idea of a platformer with the ability to fly and carry other characters.

Over 8.7 million LittleBigPlanet (1 and 2) levels have been created to date and all 8.7 million will be playable in LittleBigPlanet 3 at launch, with "improved graphics." LittleBigPlanet 3 is slated to come just in time for Christmas and looks delightful, if familiar.

Tarsier Studios presents Hunger, a surreal action adventure

Tarsier Studios did an excellent job on LittleBigPlanet Vita, and I thoroughly enjoyed my time with it. Their new project Hunger looks like a decidedly different affair, a much more mythical story with somber tones and stealt...

Pixel Heart is a documentary/game featuring talents from Rez, Journey, more photo
Pixel Heart is a documentary/game featuring talents from Rez, Journey, more
by Steven Hansen

This is confusing, but cool. Pixel Heart is going to be a documentary that visits a bunch of talented, global folks in videogames -- Tetsuya Mizuguchi (Rez), Robin Hunicke (Sims, Journey), Edmundo Bordeu (Zeno Clash), Mark Healey (Little Big Planet), and Eyram Tawia (Letiarts) -- and then trots back to France for a big game jam.

The game jam will produce 12 games, 6 of which will be available to play online, 6 of which will use some sort of dedicated hardware.

To fund this wild project, Pixel Heart has taken to French crowd funding platform Ulule, which you can donate to regardless of region.

This all sounds amazing, and the crowdfunding video sells it. Seriously, at least watch the kitchen scene at 3:35. It makes A la cartridge look bad (which it obviously is or it wouldn't be #cancelled).

PS Store update: Stranger's Wrath, Karateka, and way more photo
PS Store update: Stranger's Wrath, Karateka, and way more
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Lots of nice updates for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita owners today! First up, Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD is now available for the Vita. A small team spent 10 months on porting the game, and shares the same features that are in the PlayStation 3 version with the addition of touchscreen and touchpad controls.

The Vita also sees the arrival of Burn the Rope, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed with bonus downloadable content, and the LittleBigPlanet 2 Vita Cross-Controller update letting you use your Vita as a controller, plus adding a ton of new content to the game for $4.99.

Over on the PlayStation 3 side, Karateka has arrived for $9.99, and Angry Birds Trilogy gets a new downloadable content pack which adds 130 new levels for $4.99.

Lastly, I want to mention Knytt Underground, a neat looking Metroidvania style game going for $14.99, and that includes both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions. Check out the trailer and this developer blog by the creative director for more on the game.

Full list of new games below. For everything else that's been added, check out the official PlayStation Blog.

LittleBigPlanet Karting launch trailer (yes, it's out!)

[Update: It appears the servers were running all day during launch, and some issue with my PS3 actually prevented me from accessing the online mode. Once I'd just gone ahead and reset my connection on the system, it got in. ...

Review: LittleBigPlanet Karting
by Jim Sterling

When LittleBigPlanet Karting was announced, the first thing I felt was pity. Pity for ModNation Racers, the build-everything karting title that Sony presented under the same "Play Create Share" banner as Media Molecule's critically acclaimed series. An LBP kart racer renders ModNation obsolete. 

That said, LBP itself may be deserving of some sympathy, considering it's launched on the same day as Halo 4 and hasn't had a shred of marketing weight put behind it. If you're releasing alongside one of 2012's biggest games, you could at least have had more than a day-of-launch trailer. As it is, many folks have been surprised the game is even out already.

If Sony was looking for a one-two punch that knocked both of its karting properties out of the race, it's done a bang-up job. 

Still, neither of them are really worth missing. Easy come, easy go.

LittleBigPlanet Vita breaks street date photo
LittleBigPlanet Vita breaks street date
by Chris Carter

LittleBigPlanet Vita was all set for a September 25th release date, but guess what? That crummy old street date has been broken, which means the release date is "whenever the hell you feel like buying it."

But hold on people, as not everything is broken! Don't expect Sony to break the online "street date" just yet, as online functionality won't be available until tomorrow.

It looks like you'll have to play with yourself in the meantime. Given how great this game is however, that shouldn't be too hard.

[Thanks, Phil!]

Review: LittleBigPlanet PS Vita photo
Review: LittleBigPlanet PS Vita
by Jim Sterling

The original LittleBigPlanet earned a lot of its praise through sheer charm alone. The cute presentation and unique creativity afforded to the player won it a lot of acclaim, despite the fact that, to be fair, the actual game part was never spectacular. In my mind, LittleBigPlanet 2 confirmed this -- still fun, and a good way to waste time, but its poorer qualities were exposed by a sequel's inevitable lack of surprise. 

I had feared that a third attempt at getting into LittleBigPlanet would be the proverbial final straw and turn me off the series altogether. I was gladly wrong. I also learned something very important. 

LittleBigPlanet is finally at home on the PlayStation Vita. This is where it belongs.
