E3: LittleBigPlanet … magic for the PS3?

One of the games I really enjoyed over the week of E3 was Sony’s LittleBigPlanet. It was one of those games I’ve read about and seen on the Web, but still hadn’t able to fully grasp what it actually does for players. It’s combines whimsical — and sometimes, comically violent — platforming action while giving gamers the potential to create worlds of their own, complete with traps, vehicles, funky backgrounds, etc. After you create a level, you can share it with others for play. The library of features and customization available to players seems almost boundless. I usually look at most “level creation” modes and get bored within seconds, but LBP has the potential to suck days out of someone’s life.
