It took a little while for LittleBigPlanet to arrive on the PSP and with the sequel right around the corner, some Sackboy fans are wondering if LBP2 will also go portable.
Well, while it's certainly a "cool idea," Media Molecule is currently focusing on the PlayStation 3 version. They don't slam the door on the possibility and clearly wish to entertain the idea but for now – in this time period leading up to the fall LBP2 launch – the team wants to remain dedicated to PS3 owners. The broken translation fielded by numerous European sources reads:
"[A PSP version] would be desirable. But to be over honest, we concentrate at present on the completion of the PlayStation 3-Ablegers. I think that studios, which developed the first PSP part delivered Cambridge outstanding work. At present we have to announce however nothing. Even if a Sequel a correctly cool thing would be."
Okay, so the best we can figure out, Evans and Co. like how the first handheld iteration of LittleBigPlanet came out but for now, they're not willing to announce anything. Fans of the game know all about the installed connectivity between LBP PS3 and LBP PSP; to be able to have that again for the sequel would be a big bonus. But once again, Media Molecule is upping the ante in terms of player freedom and creativity, which means it'll be even harder to jam the entire experience onto the PSP…
Oh well, we'll keep an eye on things and see what happens in the near future.
