LittleBigPlanet Hub creates and shares for free on PS3 in 2013

LittleBigPlanet Hub will bring the create-and-share craftworld to all PS3 gamers for free later this year. Sony revealed the new game at its Gamescom 2013 conference today.

Sackpeople can do just about everything they're used to in the earlier games: design new levels and outfits, share them with friends, and play together online. They can even upload their favorite costumes for others to admire and/or purchase via microtransactions.

Finally, player-created challenges will add a more structured competitive element to the freeform game, with set rewards available for successful players.

What do you think of LittleBigPlanet's new free-to-play direction?
