LittleBigPlanet demo rumored

Downloadable demo of LittleBigPlanet in the pipeline?

Sony is rumored to be working on a downloadable demo for the quirky LittleBigPlanet title that was unveiled at GDC earlier this year.

In the game you start off as a small teddy bear-like creature made from wool, and you use your little avatar to construct in-game objects using materials such as wood and cloth.

At the GDC conference Media Molecule developers placed a lump of wood, and then attached a cog to demonstrate the physics-based building. You can read our first impressions from GDChere.

According to zie Germans over at Gamefront.de, Sony is planning to release a demo of the download-only four-player game. The site suggests it could launch around the time that the Home service goes live. We'll chase Sony and see what they have to say.
