Whenever a game that was considered to be a major accomplishment on consoles shifts to handhelds, everyone immediately has their concerns. The developers will be forced to make some sacrifices, of course, so how will they maintain such a high level of quality?
Well, Media Molecule is just the right team to allow Sackboy and Co. to make this transition without losing the title's original flair and panache. Speaking to ThatVideoGameBlog , Media Molecule producer Martin Lynagh addressed the upcoming PSP version of LittleBigPlanet and said quite simply that just because it's a PSP title doesn't mean we should expect lesser quality: "I think it's a tremendous version of the game, "he said. "The sacrifices made were the right ones. It plays really well, which is a sort of testament to the team's creativity and hard work." If you pick up LBP for the PSP, you won't be shortchanged: you will receive the standard single-player mode, the level creation that really allowed the game to reach new heights in this generation, and ad-hoc sharing amongst players. It's scheduled to release in November and we've got the game now, so stay tuned for our review in due time.
There's also the rumor that the PSP Go will fall in price down to $199 for the holidays and if that's the case, it should pique the buying interest of many more consumers.
