LittleBigPlanet Karting trailer is %*#&ing great

Player Attack: Like earlier games in the franchise, LittleBigPlanet Karting uses the vocal talents of Mr Stephen Fry to commentate the adventures of Sackboy and his friends. This time around, it seems that despite the best efforts of United Front Games, Mr Fry has developed quite the potty mouth, resulting in this video showing what he really thinks of the new game. (Culture, Little Big Planet Karting, PS3)

Dam, there was already 2 Modnation Racers, 2 Gran Turismos, 4 Motorstorms, Full Auto 2: Battlelines, Supercar Challenge, Twisted Metal, Wipeout HD, and RIIIDDDGGGE RAAAACEEERRRR 7.

It seems like Sony is dominating the racing genre and this game looks to be even better then Modnation Racers.

true \, sony is dominating with the greatest racing sim to date. gran turismo 5.
TheFallenAngel  +   1284d ago
Im going to say something everyone is going to disagree. I have a PS3 and I consider myself a PS3 fanboy. There is no game better than God of War 3. Ok so no, the greatest sim racer out there now is Forza! yeah I played it and not wanted to like it but it is way better than GT5. The amount of detail in that game was amazing! Sorry but Forza is way better than GT5. I own GT5 and my brother has Forza.

F*beep* that

Biggest  +   1284d ago
You mean the details on the things are non-existent? Eventually there will be a Forza game that stacks up to Gran Turismo 5. At the rate they're pumping them out it's only a matter of time. Don't forget to keep buying those yearly updates!
lastdual  +   1284d ago
You know, it is possible to be a Gran Turismo fan and not be crazy about GT5. Many hardcore racing fans were not all that impressed by the game and have long since moved on, despite being big fans of prior GTs on the PS2.

@ TheFallenAngel:

Why would I disagree with that? If you think it's better, then why not? I've heard some GT5 people complain about not being able to customize their cars but Poly basically made the game for car enthusiasts: but it's not like either

A. the enthusiasts would basically not touch those options themselves


B. The enthusiasts, if "offended" by custom cars, could have an option to only see cars with random manufacturer colors and stuff.

Poly chose to side with them and they lost out with some people as a result. GT5 may be the reigning sim graphics king, but they lost out on the options.


I did NOT like that trailer. LBP has a child-like ambiance and with all of that blanked-out cursing just spits on the mood.

The game itself looks good, though.

rufusman91  +   1285d ago
Ya, but it's still a great car game.
TheFallenAngel  +   1284d ago
But there are races in Twisted Metal with cars. It is an amazing game. Don't believe what the reviews says about the races in Twisted Metal. I played it and enjoyed it. I'm a big fan of Twisted Metal since Twisted Metal 1.

Apocalypse is toned down compared to Pacific Rift
damn Pacific Rift is CRAZY HARD! who ever have Platinum for PR deserve salutation from me!
remanutd55  +   1285d ago
i have both platinums but i want Motorstorm ps4 to be even harder than Pacific Rift i know Evo is trying to make the franchise a little more accessible to more players but i want the most brutal motorstorm ever created!!!!

3 Forza Motorsports (all exclusive)
2 Ridge Racer
2 PGRs (both exclusives)
2 Joyrides (both exclusives)
1 Full Auto
4 Test Drive (1 exclusive)
1 Sonic Free Riders (exclusive)
1 Race Pro (exclusive)
2 Trials (both exclusive)

I think Forza proved itself to be the best racing franchise this gen. Just check reviews. Who am I kidding, people will disagree anyway.
Knushwood Butt  +   1285d ago | Well said

Wasn't that the Kinect game that you could beat without actually doing anything?
garos82  +   1285d ago
lol yeah but they still love bringing it up as an exclusive. ill give him that there not much games that allow you to beat it by doing absilutely nothing. come on sony give me a game that i too can excell in!!

+1 Knushwood
HammadTheBeast  +   1285d ago
Sonic isnt an exclusive, it was also on Wii. Kinekt doesnt count, and Neither does Trials, because its a sidescroller.
DiRtY  +   1285d ago
"KINECT DOES NOT COUNT!!!" and "XBLA DOES NOT COUNT!" never get old I see.

Just because PS Move flopped and is dead already, Kinect does not count. So yeah, I know where you are coming from.

Joyride outsold Starhawk, Twisted Metal, Tokyo Jungle and the Jak & Daxter Collection combined - those games were on so many fanboys lists as the "oh so great sony exclusives". In the end, not a single beeep was given when they actually released. Nobody bought those games. The game that was bought by more than 1 million people does not count though. Yeah, perfect logic.

But everyone seems to be fine with Twisted Metal being a racing game. Awesome N4G, just awesome.
Catoplepas  +   1285d ago
My, my, your grapes sure are sour.

I'm sure Joyride sold very well, beating even the mighty Tokyo Jungle as you rightly pointed out. A game that has yet to be released in NA and the EU. Nicely done.

But at the end of the day you can quite gladly have your "sales", I'll take a wide spectrum of titles to choose from that don't sell quite as well, thanks.

Oh by the way, I actually own all of those titles. Bar Tokyo Jungle of course.

I like how you bring up sales when Gran Turismo 5 literally outsold every game on your list :) Shit, even Prologue outsold practically every game on your list aside from Forza 4. haha

"Just because PS Move flopped and is dead already Kinect does not count"

While I can agree that Move is a flop. Pretty much EVERY Kinect title flops in terms of quality though. Even the high selling ones. And that's pretty sad considering Kinect is pretty much all they do now and the vast amount they pump out end up being shovelware.

"Joyride outsold Starhawk, Twisted Metal, Tokyo Jungle and the Jak & Daxter Collection combined"

Yes, it's 52 metacritic score really spoke to you guys right? I guess people with Kinect really love them shovelware titles.

"But everyone seems to be fine with Twisted Metal being a racing game.

True, but it's still a much better game than Joyride, Full Auto, Test Drive, Sonic Free Riders, and Race Pro. lol

"I think Forza proved itself to be the best racing franchise this gen."

That I can agree on. :) Forza and PGR are pretty much the only worthwhile titles on your list though. :/

Rufusman91 did you get to play the lbp karting beta? I did and could not get into the game at all. I have mnr on the ps3 and my psv and i was looking forward to lbp karting but imo its way to slow and has not got the fun feel mnr mario kart and sonic all stars has.

I hope its improved for the final game but going off the beta its way off mnr and mario kart.
t0mmyb0y  +   1284d ago
It's ok but the controls feel a bit off. And come on, red and green "missles" where have I seen those "shells". I'm with you mcstorm. I hope the final game feels better. So far I like MNR controlling better
NastyLeftHook0  +   1285d ago
Yep it is a great car game, i wish they add more dlc for new characters.
TooTall19  +   1285d ago

Love the video. Oh what little creative editing will do for an otherwise cute video. "Who wants to know how to ***** and **** at the same time?" "Show you how to blast *****ers off the road!" "Makes you want to put one hand on your *****, one over your *****, and gasp the words *************** that is gorg(eous?)."

MySwordIsHeavenly  +   1285d ago
Mario Kart is fun. Mod Nation Racers was a good try, but ultimately had trouble with loading times and online balancing issues.

LBP Karting has none of these problems. It is SO FUN! Also, it has battle mode, unlike Mod Nation Racers. :)
t0mmyb0y  +   1284d ago
Ya the battle isn't to bad. I think MNR loading times are part of the reason I stopped. LBPK loads even faster the LBP.
ALLWRONG  +   1285d ago
SB clone, karting, and a tablet? Someone is running out of ideas. MS and Sony will do anything to keep up with Nintendo.
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   1284d ago
The gamers asked for a SB clone. They're giving it to us.

The gamers asked for a karting game that was better than Mario Kart. They're giving it to us.

As I recall, the Vita came out a few months ago...whereas the Wii U still isn't out yet. Hm...

I think Sony beat Nintendo to the punch there.

MySwordIsHeavenly  +   1285d ago
I am seriously in LOVE with this game! It's not going to sell as well as Mario Kart, but I personally think it has outclassed it. This is the best kart racing game ever made.
Qrphe  +   1285d ago
As far as game mechanics even Modnation racers did that, but Mario Kart has the Nintendo appeal that makes it easier to get into for most.
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   1285d ago
I think Mod Nation may have beat Mario Kart's mechanics, as well. I agree with you on that. :)

I think LittleBigPlanet has just as much appeal with children. Every kid I know LOVES LBP! The first two games have sold like crack! I just wish Sony would put more marketing into this game. I hope they put marketing into PABR, also. I doubt it though.
DigitalRaptor  +   1283d ago
The only people I can see logically disagreeing with you on this are Nintendo/Mario fanboys and random Xboxtrolls who think this is nothing more than a mediocre Mario Kart rip off.

Mario Kart hasn't had anything truly original or impressive to offer in many iterations. Not only does LBP Karting outclass it in terms of mechanics, and match its charm, but it also offers far more in terms of content, replayability and innovation that will make itself very clear once the community have got their creative hands on it.

Qrphe  +   1284d ago
Troll is serious

In regards to your previous reply, I dont know many kids so I wasnt well aware of LBP's popularity with them but I guess sales speak for itself and I'm glad.
I'm sold on LBP Karting though, just like I was sold on Modnation's customization and fun racing.
Squall5005  +   1285d ago
The beta is good fun too.
neutralgamer19  +   1285d ago
Based off beta this game will not be better than modnation, not by a long shot. I dont know ppls gripe with Modnation but imo it is the best karting game ever. With so many level creations and character creations to date its mind boggling (and most are quality). The graphics also in Modnation are good and car handling great.

I played Lbp Karting beta maybe 6 times and stopped because it was meh. The graphics were ok, but a few things felt wrong especially the way it felt when you drove the kart and handling (feels floaty as hell). The weapons also to although similar are not as good as Mod Nation.

after all this time i still own Mod Nation because it is just the definitive Karting game for me and so much all around fun.
bobshi  +   1284d ago
I have to agree with this.

The graphics in LBP are terrible compared to Modnation, everything is blurry.

Whilst there will be more varied styles of circuits I much prefer Modnation's general style.

The controls felt similar to me, but I'd say Modnation edges it.
Orionsangel  +   1284d ago
I got quickly bored of Mod Nation. It's just bland. No style at all. I've only been playing the LBP2 Beta for 3 weeks now and I'm in love with it!
Sizzon  +   1284d ago
Can't wait for this game, looks fun and solid!

KEEPNITREAL  +   1284d ago
Wow , first it's Move , then it's Allstar battle royale, now Little big planet karting, what's next Sony - super krato brothers or metal gear country. They should just call it the Playstation Wii !!!! Sony Playstation is better than this ! Sony stick to those playstation exclusives not wii clones please !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PersonaCat  +   1284d ago
For the love of god, can people stop bringing up PASBR? Fans have been asking for this game forever, Sony is actually listening to us.

That being said, Super Kratos Brothers sounds absolutely hilarious and I don't think I'd turn down the chance to play it.... You sir have given me an idea for a level when lbp vita comes out :D
