Rumor: Like LBP, ModNation Racers Is PSP-Bound

ModNation Racers takes the LittleBigPlanet concept - "Create, Play, Share" - and drops it into the colorful world of kart racing. But the new title may be following in LBP's footsteps in another way...

Sackboy and Co. have already found their way to the PSP and although we've heard no such announcement concerning ModNation Racers, it may be inevitable that Sony plans to expand the audience for a game that can always use more players in its community. This GameStop listing has prompted plenty of discussion, and most just believe it's inevitable, despite the lack of an official confirmation. Known right now only as "ModNation," this portable iteration may take some time to arrive, if LBP is any indication; it took nearly a year for Media Molecule's gem to reach Sony's handheld. GameStop says it'll be there by June 1, but I think we can all recognize a placeholder date when we see one. Sony has declined to comment on the issue - standard operating protocol of never commenting on "rumor and speculation" - but we really see no reason to disbelieve the rumor. Like LBP, this game should definitely benefit from an expanded demographic, especially one that's on the go.

We'll let you know if Sony decides to tell us anything but in the meantime, it's probably a safe bet to assume that you'll see ModNation Racers on the PSP some time next year.

It makes sense to put this on PSP and it really wouldnt surprise me. Plus with all the AAA PSP titles being released lately, this could be one more to add to that list

It says "I cant take it any more". Just thought it was funny but yeah I can see why you would say that

What would be cool is if the PSP version had the ability to share content with the PS3 version. So that a track created on the PS3 version can be shared, or published to the PSP version. The same thing would be great for Little Big Planet as well. It would immediately make the PSP version much more attractive by making a huge library of additional content available to PSP owners.

I have a good idea for what the next poll should be.

What genre what you put the elements "Play, Create, Share" into? Other then platforming and racing.

one game the ps3 is seriously lacking and seriously needs.
car combat.
BLUR hopefully will take care of that, but 1 is not enough i want a few more.
imagine how cool it would be to have a GTA styled car combat game.
drive anywhere you want, in a GTA styled city blowing buildings, cars whatever you want to high heaven.
now thats my kind of game.
