Nearly one year after its original release, LittleBigPlanet is finally getting a playable demo. Yep! Media Molecule's PS3 platformer is getting repackaged in a new "Game of the Year Edition," and the demo will coincide with its launch. You can download the LBP demo next week on the PlayStation Store: September 10th.

While we're big fans of free demos, we're not entirely sure how effective a demo released so long after a game's release will be. Clearly, only a monster would have ignored LBP for so long -- how could someone possibly say no to a face like Sackboy's?
