LittleBigPlanet 2 demo dated

More on Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves too.

Still smarting after the LittleBigPlanet 2 delay? Fear not, a demo is on the way to ease your pain, publisher Sony has announced.

According to the PlayStation Blog, the story mode demo will go live on 22nd December.

Sony also let slip a little more information about the recently teased Sackboy's Prehistoric Moves download. It's a 10-level, dinosaur-themed spin-off that you'll need a Move controller to play.

"Throughout your mission you must take on challenges engineered by Terrance Dactyl," says Sony.

"And you're going to some need help, so put on your bear skins and grab up to four friends to navigate the tough terrain of the tropical jungle dodging erupting volcanoes and other environmental hazards standing in your way.

"The player with the PlayStation Move controller leads the charge, flicking switches and triggering platforms to help the other players, using DualShock Controllers, through each level.

"Leap between Dino heads, use the Move controller to blast aside crates of bubbles, ride dinosaurs through prehistoric cities, and take to the heights of tree canopies-then team up to defeat Big Rex, all while collecting Trophies along the way".

The game will be available to download on PlayStation Network from 14th December for €5.99. However, PlayStation Plus users can download it for free from 8th December.

Not only that, but "Thousands more LittleBigPlanet fans will receive an email to download Sackboy's Prehistoric Moves for free at the same time," says Sony. "Listen out for more news on this nearer the time."

Sackboy's Prehistoric Moves will also be included on the LittleBigPlanet 2 disc when the sequel launches in January 2011.

In other LBP2 news, developer Media Molecule is planning to send out invitations for the game's beta to a new batch of PlayStation Plus subscribers early next month, so keep an eye on your inbox.
