Little Big Planet HUB is a completely free PSN download coming to the PlayStation Store later this year. It will give you your own pod and access to a full range of free and exclusive content to help you begin your own adventures on LittleBigPlanet.
LittleBigPlanet will give players access to a brand new level with tons of exclusive collectables alongside the first worlds of both LittleBigPlanet 1 and 2, a total of 16 levels and all the items and costumes within. Players will also get unrestricted access to the Create Mode and a full range of tools from both titles. HUB will also have weekly updates in the form of weekly challenges and collection of the team’s favorite community levels. It’s at more than 500 levels and will continue to grow.
As for current players, they will be able to import their profile to LittleBigPlanet HUB no problem. Everything you’ve purchased will follow and be automatically available. They will also be able to take advantage of all the free content exclusively in LittleBigPlanet HUB.
It seems like Sony will monetize it through microtransactions of items and costumes and is streamlining the process to get as many people involved with the LittleBigPlanet franchise as possible. All the DLC currently available for LittleBigPlanet 1 and 2 players will be available for purchase in LittleBigPlanet HUB.
