UPDATE 5/7/15 10.55am There's good news today for fans of LittleBigPlanet on PlayStation Vita - Sony has at last confirmed to Eurogamer that the portable game's servers will not close outside of Japan.
Sony has announced LittleBigPlanet Hub, a new free-to-play game in the sandbox series for PlayStation 3.
No gameplay footage was shown during the title's unveiling at Sony's Gamescom 2013 press conference, but we were treated to a Stephen Fry-narrated trailer showcasing the game's main points.
You'll be able to experiment with a huge variety of character customisation content - some free, some you'll buy. No further information was announced on the microtransaction options.
