Little Big Planet spin-off leads PSN

PlayStation Store Update: Sackboy's Prehistoric Moves lead off busy week of PS3 downloadable debuts, including X-Men, Marvel Pinball, Prototype, Prince of Persia: Warrior Within HD.

Little Big Planet 2 may have been delayed until the new year, but impatient gamers can get a second helping of Sackboy today regardless. The diminutive star of the series is headlining the PlayStation Network's new releases this week with his own stand-alone spin-off, Little Big Planet - Sackboy's Prehistoric Moves.

As the name implies, Sackboy's Prehistoric Moves requires the motion-sensing Move controller. The multiplayer-only game challenges up to four gamers to hop their way through 10 dinosaur-themed Little Big Planet levels with the assistance of a Move-equipped friend. Using the Move, that player will flip switches and manipulate platforms to clear the way for the group. Sackboy's Prehistoric Moves sells for $6.

Is it weird that a burlap Sackboy would wear animal skin for clothing?

For more multiplayer fun, gamers can check out Konami's new port of the 1992 arcade game X-Men for $10. Never before ported to a home system, the old-school beat-'em-up features six-player cooperative action, with gamers stepping into the spandex of some of Marvel's mightiest mutants, including Cyclops, Colossus, Storm, Wolverine, and Nightcrawler. Dazzler is also a playable character. The comic giant has another title landing on the PlayStation Network today, as Zen Studios' stand-alone Marvel Pinball arrives with a $10 price tag of its own.

The PSN update also features new PlayStation 3 releases for a pair of older games. Activision is looking to capitalize on interest in the recently announced Prototype 2 by adding the 2009 original Prototype to the console's downloadable storefront with a $30 price point. Meanwhile, Ubisoft continues its high-definition PS3 rerelease of the Sands of Time trilogy. Today sees the middle chapter, 2004's Prince of Persia: The Warrior Within, arrive in HD form for $15.

Elsewhere on the store, gamers can check out the PSone import Galaxy Fight for $6 or pick up new downloadable content for Fist of the North Star (two packs for $7 each), Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood (a free update with a new multiplayer mode and map), and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II (a bonus mission and costume pack, each for $1). For a full list of the new downloadable content, themes, avatars, and bundles available on the PlayStation Network, check out the official PlayStation Blog.

I know that you get it for free with Playstation Plus but you still pay $50 plus taxes ... In my opinion I don't really think PS+ is worth it. And why is the date of this article set to the 31st of December 1969 ?

Shame I already own and recently played the Sands of Time trilogy or I'd be all over that HD rerelease like I was with God of War Collection. Still, good line up this week.

@imaidiot You're correct, I've got an imported God of War Collection from the US and I'm European. Works perfectly.

Quite possibly my favorite PS3 exclusive to date. Honestly looking forward to seeing what they can do with LBP 2 on the Move.

@grey_fox1984 The disc has already released in Europe, released November 19th, but Ubisoft doesn't have plans to release in the US at this point...for some reason. I think PS3 games are region free, so you should be able to import the disc if you really want it. (Someone correct me if I am wrong)

Is there no chance they are releasing a disc-version of the PoP trilogy? I don't want to eat up my HDD with them if they are just going to release an all-inclusive bluray anyway

I'm getting a little fed up of all these Move only releases. I don't want the stupid thing, I want the games.
