Advertorial - Sackboy buckles up for his next little big adventure

Fresh from successfully hurtling to Earth and doing it in a brutally stylish spacesuit designed by one of his biggest fans, Sackboy™ is taking to the road! And we don't mean hitch-hiking, which would be hard for someone with no thumbs (sorry, Sackboy. We know lacking opposable thumbs is a sore point for you). No, we're talking about Sackboy's foray into karting!

LittleBigPlanet™ Karting allows you to get behind a (tiny) wheel and hurtle through all manner of challenging tracks across 25 diverse and trippy levels. And because this is a LittleBigPlanet™ franchise title, Sackboy has ensured your journey will be riddled with all manner of unlockable items, costumes and weapons. You know how you’re watching a regular car race, and the cars look boring? And the drivers look boring? And there’s nothing awesomely surreal going on AT ALL? Well, you could either spend billions bribing race officials and racing drivers into changing their sport into something more to your liking, OR you could let Sackboy and co. take you on a sweet, weird and wonderful ride.

After extensive focus groups conducted by our miniature hessian hero, the crew behind LittleBigPlanet realised that interacting with total strangers in a constantly shifting and deliciously confusing environment is what makes LittleBigPlanet so unique. So you'll be able to hook up with friends, online and offline, and customise everything. The tracks, the karts, the weapons you'll use to make your friends less inclined to stay your friends, everything. Even Sackboy himself will allow you to work your magic on him. Never seen a racecar driver wearing a frilly apron and a straw hat? Well, you’re totally about to!

And if you're not happy enough with the game as is and want to make everyone (EVEN THAT REALLY HOT PERSON YOU THINK IS HOT) crazy jelly, pick up the PlayStation®Move Racing Wheel (RRP $49.95) which will let you feel every single bump in the road. Just like you're in a real car! But you won't be in a real car. You'll be in your house. Chillaxing. With Sackboy. You lucky so-and-so. So if you want to see how the LittleBigPlanet translates to the world of racing, pick up LittleBigPlanet Karting, give full throttle to your imagination, and help Sackboy wind down from making a gravity-defying leap by racing along at unimaginably reckless speeds!  LittleBigPlanet Karting is out now in stores nationwide with a recommended retail price of $79.95.
