PSP Assassin's Creed, LittleBigPlanet, MotorStorm On The Way

Destination PlayStation? More like Destination PlayStation Portable AM I RIGHT!?!?!?

So at this point do they call it LittlerBigPlanet?
Joystiq has a few more reports from this morning's session at the retailer conference known as Destination PlayStation, which is currently underway in Arizona. Sounds like Sony is devoting time to the PSP so far, adding to the announcement of Rock Band Unplugged with news that the LittleBigPlanet franchise is heading to the PSP later this year.

Ubisoft will be delivering an Assassin's Creed game on the PSP sometime in 2009, and Sony along with BigBig Studios are doing an arctic-themed MotorStorm for the PSP and PS2 called MotorStorm: Arctic Edge.

Oh, and they're doing a Hannah Montana PSP bundle in July. Finally, some news and views that I can use!

wow great news indeed...

finally something good. I hope they don't kill Assassins creed and make it an over the top camera. Hope it looks decent too. Assassins Creed was a beautiful game to look at.

Ass Creed on PSP sounds nice, but as we all know, 3D games on PSP control like SHIT unless they use a Syphon Filter or Killzone Liberation control scheme.  Which means 99% of everything else controls like the XBOX dpad on crack

Hanna Montana bundle? looks like I'm buying a PSP and a DSi this year.

PSP is my favorite hand held console of all time

Posted by Phished0ne

This is good news, if they can be quality games, in something like Motorstorm or Assassin's Creed the graphics are very important, lets hope they can hold up.  The PSP God Of War was pretty good, lets hope these can be good too :).

The problem with these games is, in my view, the problem with all psp games- They try to emulate thier older brother (which tends to go badly), rather then come up with something that actaully works well on the psp.

Hannah Montana bundle? Sign me up!

Or not...

LBP on the PSP can be fun, though.

Posted by GobiasIndustries

Damn it...now I'm going to have to go find my PSP

Posted by LordAndrew

I find this Hannah Montana bundle interesting because there's no Hannah Montana game for the PSP yet. Do companies still release stuff on UMD?

Posted by Media_Master

good for PSP, its starving

Moar leik desperation playstation.

Posted by Jayge_

Assassin's Creed? LittleBigPlanet? Motorstorm? Added to the upcoming Resistance: Retribution, Phantasy Star Portable, Patapon 2, Dynasty Warriors: StrikeForce, Final Fantasy Dissidia, Kingdom Hearts, Parasite Eve, etc.? Awesome!

Posted by JJOR64

Fixed.  SNES gaming on the go!  Earthbound in TURBO mode!

No one cares if you post first, it`s just annoying and every news comments I read, the first thing I see " FIRST OMG LOLOL"
Anyways, I think it`s great LBP is going to the psp, hopefully they can pull it off without taking any features away.

Nice, the PSP deserves this

Posted by ElectricHaggis

"MotorStorm: Arctic Edge"
Man, that name sounds really generic.

Posted by spiceninja

Hannah Montana PSP Bundle? 

!?!??!?!?!??!??!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?

Posted by Crono

LBP on PSP?  That sounds awesome.  I hope there is as much customization as there is for PS3 though I doubt it lol

Posted by Karmum

They do this after I sell my PSP 4-5 months ago? Not fair dude, not fair.

Posted by ShadowKiller

Finally, now my PSP can be used for something other than collecting dust!

Posted by LiquidPrince

Sweet. Assassin's Creed for the win.

Posted by Hector

Too bad I sold my PSP.

Posted by FlipperDesert

Hannah Montana PSP + Little Big Planet = My interest attracted.

Posted by RHCPfan24

That is an awesome idea. I don't know how Assassin's Creed would work on ONE analog stick, but as long as it isn't the type in Altair's Chronicles, it should be cool. Count me in.

Posted by lilarchie232

Hmmmm I really want Little Big Planet, but couldn't justify buying a PS3 for it, maybe this will give me my fix i'll wait.

Posted by BiG_Weasel

Couldn't be happier @ this announcement. I bought my Madden bundle back on Black Friday, and I love it.  I wish I'd never sold my original 'phat' PSP.  The PSP is an amazing device, and it really needs the boost.

Posted by oldschool

Count me meh'd.  I have yet to have even one of my 40+ PSP games get me in.  As was said elsewhere, they all come across as poor cousins.  Much like a dumbed down port on the Wii.  Not even Final Fantasy Tactics and Disgaea could get me to love my 2 PSP, and they rank way above what has been mentioned for me.


The PSP is the worst handheld ever (actually, probably not the worst, but close).  It looks pretty but has no soul.
Posted by InFamous91

Wow...i miss my psp, now i wish i neva sold it

Posted by CoolDrMoney

Awesome, I'm looking forward to getting a taste of Motorstorm and LBP since I don't own a PS3.

Posted by demonbear

Hanna Montana psp, Finally!!!! Sony really knows where they're going with PSP....... God, kill me....

Posted by Karmann

whoa, between this and rockband, psp is coming back hard this year, cool. now how 'bout putting some persona and Gran Turismo on there as well???

Posted by spilledmilkfactory

really not too interested in any of those. seeing motorstorm in the artic sounds kinda cool i guess.

Posted by dsplayer1010

I'll have to borrow my brother's for Assassin's Creed

Posted by Lestater

I think I'm the only one here pleased with the PSP games out already, Final Fantasy, Monster Hunter, Dungeon Siege, Tales of the World, Star Ocean 1&2.  This is certainly good news regardless though.

Posted by AgentJ

Assassins Creed and Motorstorm will probably be fine, but I doubt that the PSP can host a competant version of Little Big Planet. The screen is too small, and without the next gen sheen Little Big Planet will just be another platformer, albeit with a level editor. I mean, I just can't see the PSP handling the physics engine.

Persona 1 is coming to the PSP this year.

Yay I cant wait, lots of new PSP games is good :) I need to get a new music player now though, like to listen to music while I play but I use my PSP to listen to music.

Posted by c1337us

Good to see that the PSP is getting some attention. It still doesnt make up for the new IP's I was hoping for.

Posted by Red

What happened to the Oblivion PSP rumors?

Posted by Sekoku

I can see LittleBigPlanet translating to the PSP well (possibly, depending on how the graphics/user created content stuff works). I can see Motorstorm pulling off the PSP/PS2 okay. I can't see Assassains Creed doing good on the PSP, though.


I will buy five copies of LBP PSP if it's a good port job. MM already has my heart (and my wallet), can't hurt to give them more cash. :(

That Sackboy is STOKED that he's coming to the PSP.

Posted by Meteora

This is brilliant news for the PSP. I think that games such as Assassin's Creed and Call of Duty 4 doesn't carry over the visual charm when they are ported to the DS, but if it was built on the PSP it'll work better.
