PlayStation Vita Support Coming To LittleBigPlanet 2

LittleBigPlanet 2I am rapidly coming around to the Sony PlayStation Vita way of doing things.  I enjoy playing games on the device and have become increasingly interested in new ways of using it to play since I bought one, so you can understand that I'm excited about today's announcement that Sony is bringing support for the Vita to the PlayStation 3 for LittleBigPlanet 2.  Soon players will be able to use the Vita has a PS3 controller when guiding Sackboy on his latest adventure.  Here's the PlayStation Blog with the news about the upcoming Cross-Controller Pack:

Cross-Controller lets you to use PS Vita as a controller for PlayStation 3, allowing the use of PS Vita-only features, like front and rear touch, in PlayStation 3 games. More importantly, it provides a whole second screen where action can take place! This allows for an unimaginable number of new ways to play, some of which you’ll experience with the LittleBigPlanet 2 Cross-Controller Pack!

The new downloadable content features new LBP2 levels for players to explore as well as new tools that allow for the creation of Cross-Controller-compatible levels using the game's familiar creation and editor tools.  You'll be able to download the expansion next week for a price of $4.99 which really seems like a good deal.  In the land of $15 map packs, a $5 add-on that introduces new levels and gimmicks may as well be king.
