LittleBigPlanet boss reveals PSP vision

"Companion products" would link with PS3.

Media Molecule co-founder Mark Healey has outlined his vision for a handheld LittleBigPlanet, revealing how gamers could create content on the move to add later into the PlayStation 3 version.

"There's definitely scope for a PSP version," Healey told Eurogamer TV, in an exclusive interview to be broadcast next week. "We've had discussions and talks, [but] nothing concrete at the moment."

He went on to describe how he saw the innovative title transferring onto Sony's handheld. "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," he said. "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."

Healey also hinted that any spin-off products in the franchise could be handled externally, "because we're very keen to keep this very tight core of people."

"If we need to expand for extra content, for whatever reason, maybe we'd be more likely to outsource it."

Further evidence of a PSP version of LittleBigPlanet emerged this week with the discovery of a job ad for a "PSP Game Engine Lead", seeking "a senior level programmer to work on the development of exciting new LittleBigPlanet projects".

The Guildford-based developer's debut title releases on PlayStation 3 on 24th October.
