Sony reveals free-to-play LittleBigPlanet Hub for PlayStation 3 [Update: Details announced]


At Gamescom today, Sony announced the upcoming PlayStation 3 release of LittleBigPlanet Hub, a free-to-play service that collects many key aspects of the custom content-driven LittleBigPlanet series.

Promising a "continuous supply of wonderful things to do," LittleBigPlanet Hub allows players to collaborate with online teammates for challenges, level creation, and wardrobe coordination via a redesigned shop interface.

LittleBigPlanet Hub will launch as a free download later this year.

[Update: Sony announced that LittleBigPlanet Hub will offer "unrestricted access" to LittleBigPlanet's Create Mode, and will include 16 levels taken from previous LittleBigPlanet games on the PlayStation 3. The Hub-exclusive Team Picks feature will highlight a new batch of community-created levels every week, and the new Weekly Challenges mode boasts "a whole new way to play LittleBigPlanet."]
