E3’s announcement of LittleBigPlanet 3 was exciting. It had all the fun-loving humor of the series, plus the reveal of new features and the information that all LBP 1 and 2 user-generated content will be playable. Sony revealed today that the game will be coming out on November 18, 2014, but in a pleasant surprise, the PlayStation 3 will also be getting a version of LBP3.
It was thought that it was a PS4 exclusive, but it will be released on the same date for both platforms. Pre-order DLC will also be available on the PS4 version, with content from Dragon Age: Inquisition available, and some PS4-exclusive costume packs that are also retailer-exclusive. While that particular bit of news isn’t quite so good, the game receiving a PS3 release is. It should enable this to be the best-selling entry in the series to date, and it gives PS3 owners a chance to enjoy a current game without the need to upgrade their hardware.
