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.
