LittleBigPlanet coming to PSP

Along with new MotorStorm and Buzz!

Sony has announced a trio of big-name titles coming to PSP.

First up is a new portable version of LittleBigPlanet, which "allows players to create their own levels and share them with the community". Just like the PS3 version, then.

A new instalment in Sony's popular quiz game series is also on the way. Buzz! Brain of the UK will see gameshow host Buzz "searching for the smartest people in the country".

Little else is known about those two, other than the fact they're both out this year. However, Sony had plenty to say about MotorStorm Arctic Edge. This one's in development for both PSP and PS2, and both versions are down for an autumn release.

MotorStorm Arctic Edge is set in Alaska so you'll have to cope with plummeting temperatures, sudden avalanches and broken ice bridges. There are three different racing altitudes to make things tricky, too.

The good news is you get two new vehicles - the Snowcat, which can blast through packed snow, and the Snow Machine, which never loses its grip. Plus you can customise your vehicles with different wheels, exhausts, spoilers and stickers, and even create your own liveries.

On top of all this, MotorStorm Arctic Edge for PSP will have an Ad Hoc mode for wireless races between up to eight players. There's also an Infrastructure Mode for online play.
