SCEE PlayStation Day: an age-gated trailer for LittleBigPlanet? Huh?

Sony’s wonderfully cute puzzle platformer, LittleBigPlanet, is still many months away from release, so it hasn’t yet been rated by the ESRB. But from everything we’ve seen, all indications point to the game receiving an ‘E’ rating; it looks like it will truly appeal to all kinds of people, be they hardcore gamers, casual gamers, or non-gamers.

But up above is a newly-released trailer for LittleBigPlanet that, strangely, features an age gate — something that’s typically reserved for games like Age of Conan or Grand Theft Auto. What could possibly be behind the Internet fixture that can be easily defeated by an eight-year-old? Perhaps it’s some “LittleBigPorn”, as Jim so elegantly put it.

Well, I’m not going to ruin the surprise (even though the GameVideos freeze-frame pretty much gives it away). See for yourself — if you’re at least 18 years old, that is.
