Media Molecule’s giving away a real crown to whomever has the most happening pod in LittleBigPlanet. Just brainstorm a theme, apply it to your pod and Sackboy, and — boom — you’ve got a hat you wouldn’t be caught dead wearing in public. At least, not if you’re hip, fly, and stylin’ enough to win this contest, you wouldn’t.
Check out the LittleBigPlanet forums, if you’re interested. We’re working on a theme composed entirely of links to the VG247 Twitter feed, and maybe Pat’s too. Set phasers from stun to shill.

Blizzard wants a few dedicated and skilled combatants to enter the new World of Warcraft Global Arena Tournament, where your team can both renown and cash prizes.
According to the official WoW site, players will “battle on special Tournament realms purely dedicated to the competitive format of 3v3 Arena matches”.
The characters fighting it out will be newly created level 80s, and the teams that qualify will battle in an invitational ladder to get a chance at the finals.
Registration and all the other details through this link.
While you are here though, read on through the jump a list of patch notes for the surprise patch that Blizzard released for WoW earlier this afternoon. No, it’s not the BIG one, sorry.
Following the usual maintenance today, patch 3.0.9 should be going live on all servers, but if you want to download the patch manually, click here.

Fancy the thought of a life-size Blood Raven Space Marine guarding your living room? UK residents should head on over to the official Dawn of War II Facebook page and sign up to be a fan: you may just win one of your very own.
Standing over 2 meters (6.5 feet) high, statues are now on-site at five different GameStation stores across the UK. All you have to do is walk up to the thing, take your picture with it, and upload your photo to Facebook page. Then you need to tag yourself and the Space Marine in the photo with the location of the store.
Pretty simple really.
On February 26, the GameStation store that received the most tags will form a panel and choose the winner deemed to be the “most entertaining”. The five participating GameStation stores are:
- Hull – 59-60 Prospect Centre, Hull, HU2 8PW
- Orpington – 79 – 81 The Walnuts, Orpington, BR6 0TW
- Edinburgh – 134A Princes Street, EDINBURGH, EH2 4AH
- Blackburn – 59-61 King William Street, Blackburn, BB1 7DJ
- Stratford Upon Avon – 13 Town Square Shopping Centre, Stratford upon Avon, CV37 6AU
