LittleBigPlanet - first look

The yarn-men themselves seem to be pretty versatile even when they're not creating stuff, able to vault over obstacles, shove objects out of the way and use creative means to get ahead - like, say, using a giant rolling orange to build momentum for a jump. Their arms will apparently be controlled by the individual analog sticks, which can either wave to or slap at other yarn-men, depending on how fast they're pushed.

LittleBigPlanet isn't scheduled to hit stores until sometime in 2008, although a demo is scheduled to hit the PlayStation Network sometime this fall. Keep an eye on our news ticker to find out when, and in the meantime, check out the LittleBigPlanet footage below:
