LittleBig PSP?

Sony’s LittleBigPlanethas certainly been the apple of the gaming media’s eye. With the console version releasing not too far off, gamers and the media are abuzz about the exciting new create-your-own platformer game that many have lauded as revolutionary.

So would it come as any surprise that Sony would like to slice off more of the pie?

That’s right, a LittleBigPlanetgame could be coming to a PSP near you.

Media Molecule’s co-founder Mark Healy mentioned the possibility while talking with Eurogamer TV:

There’s definitely scope for a PSP version. We’ve had discussions and talks, [but] nothing concrete at the moment. It’d be great to make, for the people who are really into the Create side, some kind of companion products that allow you to create things while you’re on the train.

One thing that I’d love to add is the ability to create you’re own music, for example, that you can import into the game. That seems like an obvious one to do and it’d be quite easy really.

What exactly the game could be is anyones guess, but if you need further proof then consider the fact Media Molecule just posted an online job ad for a “PSP Game Engine Lead”.

Let the speculation begin!


Sony Thinks LittleBigPlanet Will Sell Across the Globe

videogames247  recently had the chance to speak with the head of SCE, Shuhei Yoshida and he feels like LittleBigPlanet is going to be a hit. A bit of an understatement? You betcha!

“LittleBigPlanet is going to be the biggest title for Sony in all markets this year…History tells us how difficult it is for games developed in Europe or in the US to be successful in Japan, and with this generation we see Japanese consumer supporting more and more games coming from western Europe.”

Sony is banking on LBP to be huge indeed, though it may be tough to win over their Japanese audience, they have already declared Sackboy their PS3 mascot and are going to be doing quite a bit of exposure and advertising to hype the game up before it’s October 21st release. Trust me on this one, this could be the biggest hit of this gaming generation we have seen yet just based on it’s sheer innovation.

Prepare To Share Across Our LittleBigPlanet

A LittleBigPlanet producer mistakenly stated yesterday that sharing user-created content would be region-locked. This caused some panic and anger from fans. Rest easy, the producer slipped up and today Sony moved in to clear up the mess, assuring us all user-created content would be accessible to anyone, despite their region.

Hi all, as many of you may have heard already in an interview at Leipzig the senior producer for LittleBigPlanet announced that the game is region locked. This is in fact not the case, and all shared levels in the game will be available worldwide. The confusion arose out of regional differences in how moderation will work as there are different legal rules each region have to play by, and at one point this looked like it may require the game to be independent in each region – however this has been worked around and there will only be one region for the game…. a LittleBigRegion.

Apologies for any confusion over this issue, however I’m pretty sure you’re happy with the result.


Wal-Mart exclusive LittleBigPlanet trailer

As the October 7th release of LittleBigPlanet draws near, we are getting closer and closer to what could be (and you may quote me on this) the best platformer ever. Everything you see in the video above (and anything you ever see of the game) is user created content. That means you create the look and layout of the levels, even allowing you to import pictures with the Playstation Eye. Want a boss at the end of everyone of your levels? sure just create him and go crazy! A recreation of Stage 1-1 of the original Super Mario Bros.? go right ahead. The best part is sharing your levels or downloading others creations from around the world, and them playing them cooperatively on the internet.

New LittleBigPlanet Teaser Trailer

The PS3’s highly anticipated create-your-own platformer LittleBigPlanet has become one of the most talked about games of the year.

Another little teaser has come out. This time it’s almost a nod to Mario – with sackboy saving a princess. Or else it’s just homage to fairy tales of old. Either way, check out the fun new teaser:

LittleBigPlanet rumored to be coming to PSP

One of the best PS3 games to be released in the future for PS3 is now also rumored to be coming out on the PSP according to an inside source at CVG. No other details on how or if the game would link up with the PS3 version or gameplay elements were discussed, however it is a safe bet to say there will be some kind of linking of the PSP and PS3 given their love for remote play and all that kind of stuff. LittleBigPlanet uses a complex physics system which would be interesting to see how it gets translated over to the PSP. Just remember that nothing is confirmed yet, however lets hope that they finish up the PS3 version first so we can finally play this awsome platformer!
