LittleBigPlanet PSP is a world of endless possibilities where imagination and creativity is king. In this stylish and stitched-together 3D craft material world, there is fun to be had for all ages, tastes and player types. The LittleBigPlanet experience starts with players customizing SackBoy, the loveable main character on LittleBigPlanet. From there, players Play and learn about SackBoy's powers to interact physically with the surrounding environment while navigating through over 30 vibrant themed environments. Players make their way across these worldly levels, avoiding obstacles, solving puzzles and collecting items that can be used to make their own creations.
To Create, players use the simple "Popit" menu system, popularized in the original PlayStation 3 game, to access all of SackBoy's materials, stickers and tools to bring their imaginations to life. Here, players have the power to build and move around any object in the game's colorful landscape. All materials and objects have realistic physical properties and will behave accordingly. With a robust tool set at their disposal, the sky is the limit. Once the object or level is completed, players can publish and Share their creative works with the community via PlayStation Network. Of course, they can download and explore other players' creations as well.
For play on any version of the PSP system, LittleBigPlanet is available on both UMD and as a digital download via PlayStation Network. The PSPgo system is the smallest and sleekest PSP system to date and leverages PlayStation Network and digital content exclusively.
