Sony's closed down Little Deviants developer BigBig Studios, a Develop report has revealed
The announcement comes alongside news of a major shake-up for the platform holder's Cambridge division. The Leamington Spa-based BigBig Studios recently finished worked on the PlayStation Vita launch title, Little Deviants, after spending the past several years focusing its efforts on the PlayStation..
We've got a running joke on PushSquare pertaining to the alleged development of a new title in the Medievil franchise
The rumour seems to pop-up every six months or so, but despite us covering the game for a couple of years now, it's never been announced. The latest rumour comes courtesy of PlayStationLifeStyle. They've dug up a job listing for Sony Cambridge (the home of the Medievil franchise)..
TV Superstars is nothing if not unusual
The Studio Cambridge-developed PlayStation Move party game is clearly a parody of British celebrity culture. But its presentation is so bonkers it's hard to believe that anyone outside of the UK will understand it. At least we can say it's "unique". Our demo started with an introduction to TV...
The last time we posted about Medievil III was August 2009
There's still not been an announcement, but rumours have re-emerged today thanks to an article in PSM3 magazine . To be honest, nothing's been added to the story we reported on in August, but the fact that the rumour just won't die is perhaps testament to its reality. According to PSM3, the...
DC Comics (and with them their host of world famous IP) have finally jumped aboard ship PlayStation Digital Comics. Starting today, DC will begin distributing the massive collection of comics via the PlayStation Network, with an initial selection of over 80 comics priced from $0.99 to $2.99. Some of the offerings include Batman, Superman,...
Sony's updated the already excellent PlayStation Portable Digital Comics Reader
The update to 2.01 brings the ability to quickly delete titles from your collection, aswell as browse titles by publisher and automatically sort by genre. Nice. An additional feature allows you to move seamlessly between comics in a series if you own more than one...
An interview with Sony Cambridge [conducted by Spong, picked up by TSA] has revealed that there may well be a sequel to Play TV on the horizon
Play TV's essentially a DVR add-on for the PS3, compatible in SCEE regions. But it looks like it might be getting an update in the future. Amongst details for LittleBigPlanet PSP and TV Superstars, Sony...
Like most motion control games right now, a lot of people don't really want to hear the pitch
They want to see a picture, title and ten-seconds of footage and complain about it on their forum of choice. TV Superstars looks like it'll suffer from that syndrome, but beyond the obvious casual style of the title we think there are some cool ideas. The game's clearly a parody of the rags-to-riches..
There's something a little iffy about Uncharted 2: Among Thieves' denial of Best Game during last night's video game BAFTAs
Despite beating everything to win four gongs at last night's awards show, Batman: Arkham Asylum managed to walk away with the Best Game gong — despite being beaten by Uncharted 2 in numerous other characters. Don't get us...
We know what you're thinking
You're thinking, "Do-do-do-doo-doo." That's ok though, we are too. SCEE have confirmed to CVG this morning that the PSP version of LittleBigPlanet will hit UK PSPs this November 20th. Yo, that's not far away folks.
Would you like to dress your Sackboy up as Nathan Drake, Chloe Frazer, some dudes from Motorstorm, the Helghast or
.. a tank? You're totally going to need to preorder LittleBigPlanet PSP from GameStop then. We really hope these costumes get released commercially too because, well, a Sackboy Drake is just too much for us to resist.
We've been playing Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars today
But you know what's exciting — having a PSPgo with both Chinatown Wars and LittleBigPlanet on the same system. Amazing. Still... That has very little to do with this story. We just wanted to say, once again, just how awesome Chinatown Wars is. 'Cos it rocks. A recent LittleBigWorkshop post...
com</a> have discovered a little tid-bit as part of a TGS fact sheet — LittleBigPlanet PSP is due to release in the East this December. We're still listed as an "autumn" release here in Europe, hopefully Sony can provide a few more concrete details over the coming months.
Sackboy's looking just as charming as ever in these newly released screens from LittleBigPlanet PSP
This scene depicted in the new set over at Joystiq shows Sackboy taking to the stage and demanding applause. It's all so charming. Oh Sackboy, you make us swoon.
For us, the selling point of LittleBigPlanet PSP is being able to create levels on the move
For some it will probably be participating in multiplayer sessions of LBP while in the garden or something. We're afraid if your someone looking forward to the latter, LittleBigPlanet PSP will not support online multiplayer. "It's the one thing we've...
We're more likely to make levels on our Playstation Portable with LittleBigPlanet PSP if we're being totally honest
The fact that you can play the PSP anywhere, means we're likely to sit hunched over our shiny PSP Go's on the train working on wonderful concoctions on the way to work. So it's pretty much amazing that Studio Cambridge and Media Molecule have managed to squash pretty much the entirety..
Oh Sony Cambridge
We've heard speculation off the grapevine that you're up to something. We know you're working on LittleBigPlanet PSP and Play TV. Anything else you'd like to tell us about? You're employing? Oh really — for an "unannounced Playstation 3 title"? Is it Medievil III by any chance? ... Ok, so we're just speculating but Studio Cambridge are employing and the job does have..
Siliconera have discovered an option within LittleBigPlanet PSP that hints at purchasable download levels for the new portable platformer
Downloadable levels are one of the more requested additions to the already well supported LittleBigPlanet PS3 title, so it would make sense to build that functionality into the PSP title. But only if there are...
The Playstation 3 version of LittleBigPlanet comes with 50 story levels on the disc
LittleBigPlanet PSP will have 30. That's quite a substantial total when you consider the difference in size of the medium the games are delivered on - one on Blu-Ray, the other UMD/digital download. Assuming the game garners a rather hardcore audience (and we think it's actually going to be better building levels on..
As expected, LittleBigPlanet PSP will talk to the Playstation 3 iteration of LittleBigPlanet to unlock "bonus content"
There are no details on exactly what that content is yet, but we're hoping it's like, a PSP Go outfit for Sackboy or something. Sony are apparently going to plough a "multi-million marketing campaign" behind the game - which makes sense given the PSP Go's launch later..
