Back in November, we revealed that Evolution Studios was working on a new title, MotorStorm RC, which would be released in the US as a downloadable game for both the PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation Vita.

The game received critical praise when it launched in the UK two weeks ago. We think you’ll agree that the wait was worth it, as we are pleased to not only announce that the PS3 version will be available beginning tomorrow separately for $9.99 ($7.49 for PlayStation Plus subscribers), but to also let you know that the PS Vita version of MotorStorm RC will also be available as a free download thanks to our partners at Scion.

LPB

During the past several weeks, Sony make.believe presented ”The “LittleBig Creation,” giving the community a chance to vote on every aspect of a new, custom-created make.believe level for LittleBigPlanet 2.

The polls have closed and your voices have been heard!

We asked you which genre and environment you wanted to see, and you chose an action-adventure level set in the jungle. The storyline, also chosen by you, involves Sackboy’s quest to find the mysterious “dot” that will help unleash the world’s creativity. It won’t be easy, as he’ll need to navigate treacherous terrain, solve puzzles, and avoid deadly enemies including some particularly nasty tigers (thanks to your votes!). Everything from the music used in the level to the name (the make.believe Adventure) was the result of community polling.
