Sony have for some time now been making the most of LittleBigPlanet as the ideal outlet for cross-promoting the leading games of PlayStation 3. Metal Gear Solid, Street Fighter, Loco Roco, Wipeout, God of War, Heavenly Sword - just a handful of the big names which have come to LBP through costumes, levels and ‘create’ DLC.
But it works both ways, and Sackboy is starting to find his way in to other games. A Little Big Planet PlayStation Home space is already in the works, Sackboy PSN avatars are coming soon and don’t forget that last December it was rumoured that Sackboy will be coming to Hot Shots / Everybody’s Golf 5.
The most recent appearance of Sackboy’s friendly face is in SingStar (yes, we play SingStar and love it very much). It’s been live for some weeks now, but you can buy a Little Big Planet wallpaper from the SingStore (99p in the UK).
The wallpaper theme allows you to play SingStar with Little Big Planet background music, an animated background of various stickers moving in and out, plus of course: Sackboy’s smiling face…
It’s a bit pricey and of course, it’s a cash in for Sony on the brand that they’ve built up for Little Big Planet, but it’s a bit of fun too. Check it out in the SingStore wallpapers section, it’s called “Little Big Wallpaper”.
Keep your eyes peeled for Little Big Planet and Sackboy appearing in yet more games as time goes by.
