Plainly because of this game!
Its probably the single most creative console game ever created, and as well as that, its a brilliant example of how a company can have a conversation with the consumers!
little big planet is a game were you basically play as a ragdoll called Sackboy - hes a dude made from what looks like a sack. its a basic physics based platforming game realised in 2008 for the playstation 3. the main enthuses of the games pretty much like super mario, but the CHARM of the game and the reason people love it so much is because of the limitless amount of things you can essentially experience from it, considering everything in the game can be designed from scratch.
its a game that lets you PLAY CREATE and SHARE. allowing you to play through the game, design your own levels and how they work and download/upload the created levels so that everyone on the network can play!
THIS GUY MADE A WORKING CALCULATOR through the Basic switches that you get in the game.
i love Super Mario Games but after seeing this, ive realised i want a playstation just to play this!
