According to a Wired report, Sony have created a possible killer application for the PS3.

The so far lacklustre PS3 launch could be revitalised by a game that captures the notion of Second Life with the incredibly powerful graphics of the new console. Sony believe that the future of games lies in “emergent entertainment, where we don’t define the rules as game designers. We’re putting the power back into the hands of the users.”

The new game, Little Big Planet, has been designed by renowned designer Mark Healey. Healey has created a world that allows players to create their own environments and interact with others in the world. Once users have created their own little world they can upload their world for everyone else to share.
