LittleBigPlanet boss hints at PSP version

The co-founder of the company behind PS3 game LittleBigPlanet, has expressed an interest in creating a PSP version of the game.

Mark Healy from Media Molecule said: "There's definitely scope for a PSP version. We've had discussions and talks, [but] nothing concrete at the moment."

Talking about how it could work on the handheld, Healy also came up with an idea of being able to make things on the PSP while out and about, and transfer them onto the PS3 version when you're home.

He said: "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."

A PSP version of LittleBigPlanet does seem more and more likely, especially with a job ad spotted for a "PSP Game Engine Lead" which required "a senior level programmer to work on the development of exciting new LittleBigPlanet projects". Interesting.

Those awaiting the much-anticipated title on PS3 don't have much longer to wait - LittleBigPlanet will finally be released on 24th October.
