During its press conference today, Sony announced plans to allow the Vita to become an enhanced controller for PlayStation 3 games. LittleBigPlanet 2 will be getting a Cross-Controller patch which offers a new story mode, stickers, decorations, and objects, as well as taking advantage of the Vita's unique touch control options.
LittleBigPlanet 2 will be the first title to support the feature, with PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale to support the feature as well. Obviously, this is a ploy to steal Nintendo's Wii U thunder, but it's still undeniably cool.
