It comes as no surprise that Sony will put out a LittleBigPlanet hardware bundle, and here's the first shot of the rather nice-looking box.

The bundle will include a standard black 80GB console and the shake-ready DualShock 3 controller, which should coax a fair few PS2 gamers into making the upgrade to Sony's latest box.

It's not on any of the major UK retail sites yet, but this French retailer has it listed for a November 5 release for 399.99 Euros. The game, however, was officially confirmed for an October 29 release over here.
