The "Game of the Year Edition" of PlayStation 3 hit LittleBigPlanet is coming later this year with a cheaper price tag and some amount of downloadable content included on the disc. About $30 worth of content, apparently.

While details on what that extra content thrown in for free will be aren't specified in the listing, the lower price and extra goodies really should convince you to pick up a copy of LittleBigPlanet already. I mean, have you seen how cute these Sackboy things are? Seriously. Just precious.

The original report on the LittleBigPlanet re-release indicated that "much" of the downloadable content already available would be bundled with the core game. Whether that includes the dozens of available downloadable costumes or simply some of the game's user-created levels is unclear. The "valued at" makes us wonder.

Amazon doesn't offer a date, but it's making it available for pre-order. Keep a button open for more details.


In the meantime, feel free to debate whether the GOTY edition box art is better or worse than the original.
