"Cross-Talk" Between LBP PSP And LBP PS3 Confirmed
For those of you who rewarded Media Molecule last year for their charming and innovative platformer, LittleBigPlanet, you're likely planning to snag the portable iteration when it arrives later this year, right?
You'll certainly have incentive, beyond the fact that LittleBigPlanet PSP certainly seems to be a guaranteed winner. As reported by Joystiq, it has been confirmed that LBP PSP will "cross-talk" with the PS3 version of the game. This means that if you've already played the original title, you'll be able to unlock bonus content in the handheld LBP. Now, we don't have any details, nor do we know if this "cross-talk" will work in reverse; i.e., if by playing the PSP version you'll be able to get new stuff in the PS3 version. But we do know that such incentive goes a long way with gamers, so make sure you keep that LBP save file! Also, it seems that Sony is pulling out all the stops for marketing LBP PSP; they've got a "multi-million dollar marketing push" planned, which should go right along with the PSP Go (set to launch in October). They could've used a more aggressive campaign when the first game hit last year, but Sony has been getting better in this category...slowly but surely. They still need to ramp things up, though.
We'll let you know when more info drops for LittleBigPlanet PSP; it's definitely one of the most anticipated portable titles of the year, and Sackboy and Co. will be able to appeal to a whole new audience.
