Sony are doing the promotional rounds with the PSPgo and forthcoming titles like Gran Turismo and LittleBigPlanet, showing them off to general industry types whenever they get chance. We have already seen T3’s attempts to tell us all about the new gadget, and how wide of the mark they were with quite a few facts, but during another recent hands-on session Siliconera got chance to have a play around with the forthcoming PSP version of LittleBigPlanet, revealing a key feature of the title in the process.
When they picked up the new handheld it had froze on one of the menu screens, now frozen screens don’t usually make for quality demos of new titles but the this time around it probably showed off more about the title than a 5 minute play through ever could.
In the picture they took of the screen it shows several menu options, first off the normal ‘Story Levels’ and then two new additions; ‘downloaded levels’ presumably where it stores user created levels you may have downloaded over the WiFi connection which you can then play on the move, and ‘purchased levels’ which the assumption is the title will feature premium downloadable levels. Downloading levels is nothing new to the world of LBP, in fact you can download more than a million of them for the PS3 version, but this is the first time we’ve seen evidence that there will be premium downloads of anything more than costumes and the occasional level pack in the franchise. Now if they’d just bring the same service to the PS3 version?
