LittleBigPlanet has sold 1.3 million units around the world according to Sony Computer Entertainment boss Kaz Hirai.

He also revealed that gamers have created around 300,000 levels since launch, and that the free PlayStation Network now has 17 million users.

Hirai was speaking during a section of Sir Howard Stringer's CES keynote in Vegas yesterday, as watched by GameSpot.

Sony's current dad was reportedly upbeat about the LBP sales figures, issuing his customary reminder that you can only play the game on PS3.

The game currently sits at 30th in the UK All-Formats charts, and had been selling consistently albeit not spectacularly in the run-up to Christmas.

Sony will no doubt be hoping the ongoing support of level creators - and the firm's own DLC, which is becoming increasingly extravagant - helps sustain that in 2009.
