LBP Karting Not In The Works For Vita

Not that united.

It’s getting so that a Vita owner will automatically utter the words “would love to see this on Vita too” for every new PlayStation 3 game that’s announced. It seems like Sony has managed to pack enough power into the handheld that we think it should get versions of everything its big brother has.

Well, United Front has other ideas. That’s the studio behind LittleBigPlanet Karting and last night, over on the US PS Blog, they responded to a comment from one of those aforementioned Vita owning hopefuls that ruled out a Vita version – at least for the time being.

Alas, we are concentrating 100% on making the PS3 version LittleBigPlanet Karting the very best it can be. We are not working on a Vita version at this time.

There’s enough ambiguity in that response to leave room for another studio working on it, I suppose, but we probably shouldn’t get our hopes up.

    The key words really are “at this time”. It makes sense for the company to focus efforts on a single platform, and doesn’t mean we won’t see a Vita version later, a la LBP. There is so much doom and gloom surrounding the Vita online, yet it already has a decent line up of games with some big names on the horizon for release as well. As someone else so eloquently put in the comments a while back, these are problems with an ADHD mentality as opposed to the Vita.

    Oh Vita, you look so lonely sat there waiting for some support and love from game devs…what has Sony done to you?

    meh, to be honest it’ll just end up being handled by another dev.
