Little Big Planet hits PSP Nov. 17

Media Molecule's lighthearted puzzle-platformer arrives for Sony's portable next month.

Sony wasn't kidding in April when it said that the PSP was in for a big year. More than just rolling out the overhauled PSP Go, Sony also gave the portable's software library a substantial boost, announcing such titles as Rock Band Unplugged, Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines, and MotorStorm Arctic Edge, to name a few.

Sackboy has some unusual friends...

Of course, that list wouldn't be complete without Media Molecule's Little Big Planet, and Sony has now announced that the franchise will make its portable debut on November 17. A disc-based version of the game will be available at brick-and-mortar retail shops, and a digital copy can be obtained through the PlayStation Network's online storefront. Sony did not reveal pricing information for the title.

Little Big Planet on the PSP won't stray far from the gameplay Media Molecule established in the well-received PlayStation 3 original. The PSP version includes an all-new campaign in which players platform and puzzle their way through vibrant levels. Little Big Planet PSP also incorporates the franchise's hallmark level-creation element, where gamers can devise their own intricate environments from scratch and then share their creations with others online.

@KillerWabbit23 I agree with you. Gosh man I can't wait! This should be perhaps one of the greatest PSP games ever!

Gosh I have been wanting this game like ever since I saw it in the gamestop future release list. I plan to pre-order this from gamestop. I also want to get a PS3, but my dad said no. I'm thinking once I have the money, and am ready to buy it the answer might change.

I'll definitely be getting this, I don't have a PS3 so the chance to get it on my PSP is great.

I'm getting this game. I'm sort of happy that my DS broke, which led me to buy a PSP. Not that the DS has bad games...

I hope you can take levels from the PS3 and play or edit them on PSP and vice versa.

WOOOO can't wait for a portable Sackboy. I got my wish with portable Pixeljunk a few days ago, so this will be sweet! Now... if only someone will hear me and make a PSP version of Castle Crasher's I'll be all set.

Thank you!!!!! I love LBP and this kind of games really fit on PSP... I remember when Capcom released Megaman PoweredUp... man, that tittle stole several months of my life... and now LBP... perfect, plain perfect. Can't wait. I love this kind of unexpected news... awesome. Go sackboy! Go PSP... Kill Go!!!!!!! (the son that make crap on the family name)

This is one of my favorite games for the ps3 (one that I refuse to sell) and this might make me rethink my decision of getting a psp. I'll probably only get the 3000 or earlier. Go is too expensive

WOW...that looks awesome. I'm surprised that it looks so good on a PSP.
