These LittleBigPlanet Trademarks Have Our Imaginations Running Wild

Popit into overdrive

Sony has recently registered two separate trademarks in the UK under the name LBP.

Ordinarily we’d skip on this story like a plate of smelly socks, but desperate times call for desperate measures. Japanese publisher Capcom has filed a US trademark for the title Remember Me. Presumably it has nothing to do with the 2010 romantic comedy of the same name. The filing for the “computer game” was made on 22nd May,...
