LittleBigPlanet is Coming to Sony's PlayStation Portable Console
As first announced earlier today, Media Molecule confirmed the long speculated rumors that the adorable SackBoy will be making his way onto the PlayStation Portable sometime this Fall.
Over the last several months and shortly before release of the PlayStation 3 version, there was an enormous amount of belief that these rumors were true, and finally they've come to fruition.
Sony declared that LittleBigPlanet will hit the PSP while offering new levels and the ability to play, create, and share with users much like its PS3 counterpart. It wasn't disclosed if cross-platform functionality would be included, but who are we kidding, it would be a no brainer.
If the PlayStation 3's DLC wasn't draining your wallets enough as is, we're sure the company has more content planned on the way for its Mini-SackBoy as well.
Hellz yeah! Well I already knew it. But I like how they announce the date. LBPP is going to be a top PSP seller. I expect sales of the PSP unit to go up by at least 5 million just because of that game.
Now they need Little Big Racing. where it's like Mario Kart only you can make your own track. Also all sackboy costumes from LBP have to be transferable. Then Little Big Party! Okay that was a bad joke. Little Big First Person Shooter sounds a lot better.
But in all seriousness they need to pick Sackboy up and run with it. Mario is called the whor... Mascot of Nintendo Sackboy should be Sony's.
If this had some cross-platform functionality I'd so buy this... Not enough games out there that allow combining the PSP and PS3. Most interesting thing I've heard of was the Gran Turismo thing they showed off at some convention... but that still didn't even do much...
As mentioned before, i hope there's PS3 intergration as it would be awesome to transfer your sack person from PS3 to PSP and back again, a little like how the Wii's Mii's can be moved about.
I like the idea of the PSP version having a new and unique story with new levels, otherwise it would turn into the GTA4 fiasco when the trophies turned up and the majority of people couldn't be bothered to redo everything again after the amount of time spent on it.
