Game Update 1.17 has been released for LittleBigPlanet 2, including the new Cross-Buy functionality for the store in LBP 2.

Cross-Buy means that when you purchase costume DLC from the Store you will be able to access the items in LittleBigPlanet 2, LittleBigPlanet Vita and LittleBigPlanet Karting at no extra cost.

If you already own this content for LittleBigPlanet 2 you will not need to purchase it again - simply download the content onto your PlayStation Vita and it will become available in LittleBigPlanet PS Vita.

Not all items are currently available on PS Vita, but this will be improved in time.

LittleBigPlanet Vita will be available in stores and via the PS Store from Friday. The game earned a respectable 8/10.
