Sony Confirms LittleBigPlanet Karting

Sony Racing Playstation 3 News

A few days ago, a rumour was circulating that Sackboy will be getting his own kart racing game called LittleBigPlanet Karting. Adding credibility to the rumour was a picture of a banner ad that included screenshots and revealed that the game would be coming to the Playstation 3. It turns out that the banner was not a fake and the mumblings were spot on as Sony confirmed over Twitter that the game is indeed real and is currently in development.

The following is the Sony twitter post:

Update: We can confirm that LittleBigPlanet Karting is in fact in development and we look forward to sharing more on the game soon!

Now, since Sony is notorious for not keeping their secrets, the announcement was not a surprise. However, the following question must be raised: what is the fate of the Modnation series? A Playstation Vita iteration is only a couple of weeks away from release (as a Vita launch title) and the gaming world gets an announcement of a kart racing Sackboy. Will this be the end of Modnation Racers or can both titles co-exist on the same shelf/digital store? Comment below on this revelation and what it could mean for the Modnation Racer franchise.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
