Media Molecule is teaming up with United Front Games (ModNation Racers) on LittleBigPlanet Karting, as detailed by the PlayStation Blog today. The game, due out later this year for PlayStation 3, looks like a natural extension of the concepts behind the studios' prior work.

United Front Games senior producer James Grieve says to expect "a new toolbox specifically tailored to allow for building in LBP Karting's 3D world," racing and battle modes, and modifiable rule sets.

Responding to a user comment on the post about lengthy load times in ModNation Racers, Grieve says he believes fans will be "pleasantly surprised." Not a bad start!

Review: LittleBigPlanet Karting

When LittleBigPlanet Karting was announced, the first thing I felt was pity. Pity for ModNation Racers, the build-everything karting title that Sony presented under the same "Play Create Share" banner as Media Molecule's crit...more

Give The Crew 40 minutes, and you'll be on the other side of the country

By videogame standards, The Crew features a fantastically massive open-world to drive around. As you can see in this video that was captured from the PC beta, getting from Miami to Los Angeles takes about forty minutes,...more

There's a Hummer H1 in Forza Horizon 2, and these 99 other cars

Of course, Forza Horizon 2 has the H1, the actual Humvee-looking one that isn't any less stupid for civilian driving, but at least it doesn't look like a gangly, overgrown Power Wheels like the popular H2 you still see out and about sometimes. The first 100 cars are listed here.more
