Sumo Digital has released the LittleBigPlanet 3 update 1.27 patch today, and this is to bring the online component back to players! Unfortunately, there is a downside, as LittleBigPlanet, LittleBigPlanet 2 and LittleBigPlanet 3 on PS3, and even LittleBigPlanet for the PS Vita now have their online services permanently shut down.

Will LittleBigPlanet 2 and LittleBigPlanet 3 on PS3 Be Back Online?
Based on the studio’s wording, nope. Servers are permanently shut down.
If you’re one of the people who still pay the older titles in the LittleBigPlanet franchise, this is a hard pill to swallow.
If there are gameplay-related changes included in this patch that’s not mentioned above, we’ll be sure to update the post. Feel free to leave a comment below if you spot any technical or gameplay changes.
