Video Game •One of the best video game series exclusively for Sony's PlayStation 3 has now gone portable. "LittleBigPlanet" is now on Sony's newest handheld device, the Vita, and the translation is perfect for on-the-go gaming. Just like its PS3 counterpart, you play Sackboy, a cloth-covered boy who runs and jumps through imaginatively crafted levels that tell the story of a corrupt carnival-like world. You also get to create your own levels with a robust editor included with the game, so the really creative game play will come later when other players start designing their own levels. The graphics and sound are as whimsical and delightful as the PS3 version, and the levels made by the game's developer are ingenious and challenging. "LittleBigPlanet" is just that — big fun on a little device.
