Sony has registered two new trademarks titled LBP, the acronym for LittleBigPlanet. Those of you who are hoping this is in reference to a new title for the PS4 will have to wait longer for that, as these are pretty likely to refer to LittleBigPlanet Hub, and merchandising.
The first trademark refers to “Electronic games services provided by means of the Internet… providing of an online gaming service.”
This is what LittleBigPlanet Hub will be. The second trademark as the description set as “Toys, games and playthings, bags and cases adapted or shaped to contain handheld electronic games devices.”
So maybe we’ll soon see LittleBigPlanet cases for the Vita, as well as new toys inspired by the franchise. As for why LBP was trademarked, well that’s most likely Sony covering themselves so no one else can take the acronym trademark.
