Sony: “PSP can offer much more than a home console”

Sony Cambridge artist Laura Dilloway told us plenty of great things about LittleBigPlanet PSP and the system itself at Eurogamer Expo 2009 last week, but we recently interviewed her again and were curious if she thought fitting a mammoth game like LBP onto the PSP was the closest the system would get to a home console experience. Her reply gave an interesting new perspective on the handheld.

“Actually I think that the PSP can offer much more than a home console,” she began, “After all, it is designed to be something portable, that you can carry with you at all times, and so you can play it wherever you are whether you are in or out of the house.”

Sure, you can enjoy the graphical delights of Gears of War 2 or Uncharted 2 on your huge screen at home, but that’s obviously useless on the bus. “The PSP also has such variety of games that you can have anything from a quick five minute blast at something, to an epic five hour epic session – creating an awesome LBP level for example!”

“With the latest developments in PSP-PS3 connectivity, allowing you to access your PS3 system from anywhere in the world; coupled with the extra features that the PSP offers such as Skype and a portable internet connection, I already find the PSP ideal in many ways – and it’s still evolving.”

This is just a taster on what she had to say on the PSP, so make sure you check back Monday for the full interview.
