Yes, LittleBigPlanet PS Vita plays on the handheld PlayStation console's tilt controls, built-in camera, and touchscreen ability, but it's the community aspect that stars in the trailer here.

Just as players of previous LittleBigPlanets on the PlayStation 3 and PSP delighted in making, sharing and discovering new levels, the Vita version can rely on the same sort of creativity and enthusiasm that resulted in the production of homages to arcade classics, frenetic timewasters, jokes, ambitious experiments, and ingeniously constructed levels with a beauty all of their own.

It's indicative of how far the game modding scene has spread, since its early days on home computers as enthusiasts laid out their own level designs for retail games: recent motocross games Trials Evolution and Joe Danger: The Movie come with level creation tools as a matter of course, web game Happy Wheels depends on its users' crazed ideas to maintain momentum, while epic Half-Life update Black Mesa finally released last week.

Subject to a staggered worldwide launch, LittleBigPlanet Vita breaks out in European regions from September 19, Japan from September 20, with North America joining in on September 25.
