Blast off

If you've not been able to participate in the LittleBigPlanet 2 beta, do not despair: you'll get your chance to play it soon, with a free demo available across North America on December 21st and December 22nd in Europe.

In Sony's own words, here's what you can expect from the bite-sized piece of Sackboy:

This demo will give everyone a taste of the new Story Mode in LittleBigPlanet 2, along with our new gameplay mechanics – including CREATE! Swing from different objects with the Grapple Hook, rescue helpless Sackbots, and experience the chaotic multiplayer fun that blows up when the competitive scoring mode is coupled with Sacboys and Sackgirls armed with the new Creatinator!

If you're a PlayStation Plus subscriber, don't forget you can get Sackboy's Prehistoric Moves for free this week. If you're not, you can buy it a week later.
