More awesome news for LittleBigPlanet fans, LBP 2 will be the first game to feature Sony’s newest cool doodad Cross-Controller play. The Cross-Controller Pack is due out next Tuesday, but I’m sure by this time you are already thinking “What the flip is this Cross-Controller business?” Well, let me explain it to you.
The Cross-Controller feature allows players to use their PlayStation Vita as a controller on the PlayStation 3. I know right, that’s insane! That’s not all, not only can the Vita be used as a controller, all of it’s features such as front and rear touch will still be used. It doesn’t end there, the icing on the cake is that the Vita will provide a second screen to the game. So players can play through the PS3 on the TV using a Vita and all of it’s features plus a second screen.
The first game to support this feature, as I said above, will be LittleBigPlanet 2. I’m sure that wont be the only title to support this feature in the future though, so that’s good news. I personally can’t wait to see more using this feature, because it honestly looks super interacting and awesome. The Cross-Controller pack offers up a whole new adventure for you Sackboy in which he/she will team up with some cute Space Pirates on their journey to grab up some lost treasure through the cosmos. Sackboy will face new obstacles which can only be overcome through the use of the Cross-Controller feature. In addition to the new adventure, players will also be able to use the creation feature to make their own playable community maps that use the Cross-Controller feature.
The Cross-Controller pack will be available next Tuesday, December 18, for download on the PSn. It will set you back $4.99 and all you need is a PlayStation 3, a copy of LittleBigPlanet 2, and a PlayStation Vita.
