Sony confirms LittleBigPlanet for Sept

How exciting!

Sony has confirmed to Eurogamer that LittleBigPlanet will be released in September.

It follows word from a source on Monday who claimed this would be the case, despite Sony's reluctance to stamp its name on it.

LittleBigPlanet is essentially a tool that lets you build your own games within an overarching framework; think variations on a theme. You and three friends can then try them out, or you can share them with the rest of the PS3 community.

September is a little later than most were expecting, although no solid date had previously been mentioned. But perhaps a longer testing period is a necessary and beneficial move for such a community-based project.

For a better idea of what to expect, take a gander at the latest CES demonstration video.
