Crafty lot

A little like DriveClub, the upcoming LittleBigPlanet 3 is one of those titles that we want nestling on our PlayStation 4’s hard drive. Sony’s exclusive lineup this year seems built around pickup and play experiences that will have long legs, and Sackboy’s latest errand looks particularly likely to evolve over time if it’s anything like its PlayStation 3 siblings.

Granted, changing discs is a first world problem of the highest order – but we’d rather have the release sitting on our dashboard for whenever we get a hankering for Stephen Fry’s sweet nothings. Fortunately for us, then, it appears that Sumo Digital’s forthcoming release won’t consume a great deal of space, as this box rear indicates that it’ll occupy approximately 14GB.

Alas, this could very well be a mock up yet. As part of its booth at EGX London last week, the manufacturer was making custom covers for anyone that took the time to queue. We’ve cropped out our ugly mugs so that you don’t have to see that, but the information on the back sleeve certainly looks real at least.

Interestingly, it also mentions that the title will be compatible with the PlayStation Move motion controller, which is the first that we’ve heard of that, too. Considering that this functionality was well received in LittleBigPlanet 2, it’s not a surprise to see it a potential bullet point in the sequel, where it would definitely be an appreciated addition.

Of course, as mentioned, this information may not actually be accurate. While the cover does look legitimate, there’s every chance that Sony may have spoofed some of the facts in order to make the cover look convincing. Still, with the game just over a month away, it's certainly possible that these details may have been locked down by now.

Update: As pointed out in the comments, PlayStation Move support will be required for the ambitious backward compatibility that Sony has promised for this version of the game. Still, it's nice to see it in black and white, isn't it?
