Sony decided to show a new LittleBigPlanet game (of sorts) earlier today in their Gamescom conference in Cologne; the LittleBigPlanet Hub. LBP Hub will be a free to download game which will bring the entire set of creative tools, alongside a few MediaMolecule levels to everyone’s Playstation 3. This will open the doors for anyone to create and publish their own LBP levels absolutely free of any charge or purchase price!

Any content you purchased in LittleBigPlanet or LittleBigPlanet 2 will automatically transfer across to LittleBigPlanet Hub, with options to buy level packs and costumes being made available to users of LittleBigPlanet Hub who have never before played any games in the series, or have not bought any DLC. The Hub will allow unrestricted create mode access and access to a wealth of online levels, so, the game is basically a free version of LittleBigPlanet, with the story levels mostly taken out, but with a few new enhancements added in their place.

This looks to be a great bonus for PS3 owners, and I definitely recommend trying it once it launches. More information on the hub will be offered VERY soon!
