Play with everything

Lovable PlayStation icon Sackboy is back for a brand new adventure in LittleBigPlanet PlayStation Vita. The fair has come to town and captivated the residents of Carnivalia, yet away from the fun and games, all is not as it seems. With a shadowy figure known as The Puppeteer pulling the strings for his own devious ends, it’s up to you to help Sackboy foil his dastardly plans and restore joy to the planet. Along the way, you’ll discover a cast of memorable characters, brand new gadgets and unique ways to play, create and share using the PS Vita system’s intuitive controls.

A new era of shoot and loot

Pick up Borderlands 2 in-store or download it from PlayStation Store directly to your PS3 and immerse yourself in a massive new world of creatures and enemies as you hunt down evil mastermind, Handsome Jack. Playing as one of four new vault hunters, go on a relentless quest for revenge and redemption as you strive to free the unpredictable living planet from the clutches of the brilliant, charismatic and utterly despicable CEO of the Hyperion Corporation.
