LittleBigPlanet Confirmed For PSP
It has been whispered as rumor and falsely confirmed, but we've never had any sort of official announcement. Well, the mystery and assumption is gone: Media Molecule has confirmed that SackBoy and Co. will be going portable.
LittleBigPlanet is coming to the PSP some time this fall. It was announced yesterday at the Destination PlayStation event, and fans of LBP will be happy to know that this portable version will feature new levels, plus the much-appreciated and hyped ability to play, create, and share with other users across the Network. We don't know if there will be any cross-platform compatibility concerning the PlayStation 3 LBP, but we have to assume it's inevitable. This is the news that PSP owners have been waiting to hear; LBP on Sony's sleek handheld will easily be one of the biggest titles of the year. Can you imagine being able to take this innovative and addictive platformer out on the road? Say you're sitting there, traveling from one place to another, wishing you could be home fiddling around with SackBoy and your freshly created levels...and hey, it's right there in your hand! And considering the downloadable content already available for the PS3 version, can you imagine how much more stuff is gonna be on the Network for both versions? It's a LittleBigWorld of creative goodness, ain't it?
The PSP could use a good year of software, and if this isn't #1 on your most anticipated portable title list, it should be pretty damn close.
