These LittleBigPlanet Trademarks Have Our Imaginations Running Wild

Posted by Kell Andersen

Popit into overdrive

Sony has recently registered two separate trademarks in the UK under the name LBP. The first is described as an "electronic games service provided by means of the Internet", which suggests that it likely has something to do with LittleBigPlanet HUB. The second, however, is listed as "computer game software", but curiously also features a separate description of physical playthings, including "bags and cases adapted or shaped to contain handheld electronic game devices".

We're utterly stumped as to what the second listing could be. Perhaps it's a reboot of the series for the PlayStation 4, or maybe a new line of Vita cases styled after the creative franchise's handheld outing. And if you want to be boring and realistic, it's entirely possible that it's just Sony taking precautionary measures to ensure that it retains ownership of the trademark. But if that's as far as your imagination is going to take you, we're willing to bet that you're probably not that interested in the do-it-yourself franchise anyway.

In truth, we've absolutely no idea because, in typical LittleBigPlanet fashion, the possibilities are terrifyingly endless. But whatever this turns out to be, we've got our fingers firmly crossed that Stephen Fry will be narrating it. What do you make of these recent discoveries? Would you be interested in a LittleBigPlanet game on your next-gen system? Wildly speculate in the comments section below.

Still waiting for LittlebigPlanet HUB, I may not like the floaty fisics but some of that amazing user generated content I fond online made me love the game.
It just has a lot potential.

I think its obvious they're going to make cases and carry bags for vita. I didn't much like LBP on ps3 but I'll give it a second chance on my vita at some point because I got a free copy with my purchase.

Wow I didn't even recognize it was his voice lol. I've been watching Fry & Laurie recently too. It'd be cool to have LBP textile cases for stuff (as long as it wouldn't trap heat, of course)

LittleBigPlanet is one of the most superb games on the market (even if the kart racer wasn't terribly successful) so honestly I can't wait to see what they come out with!

@charlesnarles Fry and Laurie is without a doubt my favourite sketch comedy show of all time. So when I realised it was Stephen Fry narrating in LBP, I almost had a conniption fit of excitement. It's so perfect!

I'm just waiting for LBP3 on PS4 OR if sony really wants to make me happy, i'd love to see them release LBP Hub for PS4 as well for all of us who didn't own a ps3 and missed the LBP games last gen.

I'm a big fan of LBP PS Vita, in fact I might still rank it as my second favorite Vita game behind Gravity Rush. A follow up would be very welcome news.
