Sony has announced its acquisition of LittleBigPlanet developer, Media Molecule. So don't expect it to arrive on any other formats now. Shuhei Yoshida, President, SCE Worldwide Studios commented:

Over the years they have consistently shown their dedication to Creative Gaming and Media Molecule, not only through their support of the company, but their willingness to take risks and embrace our often unusual approach and ideas.
