LittleBigPlanet Karting, now confirmed

Earlier this week, rumors and reports of a LittleBigPlanet racing spin-off made the rounds and it would seem that in the end, the only thing missing was for Sony to deliver the official word.

Today, that happened.

Quickly, swiftly and in most Twitter-like fashion, PlayStation’s official account posted just earlier, “we can confirm that LittleBigPlanet Karting is in fact in development and we look forward to sharing more on the game soon!”

Unfortunately, you can only divulge so much when limited to 140 characters, and the above was all we got; no date, no developer, no info whatsoever.

Is this an attempt to push creativity to the next level and branch out to other genres? Or is Sony just milking the franchise?
