The Three Speech poll takes another twist, with another batch of voters moving Metal Gear Solid 4 into joint top spot to go along with the hugely anticipated LittleBigPlanet.
LBP is going to be a gaming phenomenon.
We (PS3 owners) are really in for a truely outstanding year. We may have had to of been patient over the last year but Sony seems to be coming good (as they always have).
Heres a link to the poll where you can add your vote or simply view the results as they stand now...
LBP is a side-scroller with customisation, MGS4 is MGS4. how does LBP come close to the cinemetic genuis of METAL GEAR?!?!
did i say it did? no.... They're completely different genres, no body is comparing the to. READ!!!
LBP is more important as a technical showcase of what the PS3 and PSN can do...that is what is making it so significant, and where most of the hype is coming from...
personally...LBP the actual game doesn't interest me as much as say...Killzone 2 having all the UGC options or something of that nature...but if LBP is what it takes to show developers whats possible...so be it...
UT3 is accomplishing a similar situation on smaller scale...an although the up take of the game has been rather slow...feature wise, it is quickly slamming the door in the face of competition...the other side claims to not want or need features like this, which is easy to say when your system of choice gives absolutely zero options in this area...but as far as growth is concerned...the PSN is in a position to wreck every other online service to ever exist...
but yeah agreed douche...Sony is starting a whirl-wind of games and content that is currently unmatched...not only are there tons of it, but there is more variety being offered than any other system...Its going back to how it was with the PS2...where there was little in terms of system fanboys...and only game/genre fanboys...in which there was zero reason to not own a PS2...and the only thing to argue about was which games were better than others...
The PS3 is finally starting to rotate the blade though...They have always had a firm grip on the RPG and action front for the most part...but never close to the western FPS market...now all of a sudden the two biggest and craziest looking shooters of all time are coming to only the PS3 in less than a year...and that is just icing over the grenade that was there all along...FFXIII and MGS4...LBP and all its UGC stuff...a GT game ruining every other racing sim around for 10 years and running...the PSN gaining a feature set to not only put it well beyond XBL, but also absorb stuff that only PC communities currently have...
the funniest part of this year is yet to come...the time when we see what the self proclaimed 'gamers' have to say about the PS3...if you truely are a 'gamer', you already know that there is not one single excuse to avoid the PS3...a fair amount of these 'gamers' used the PS3's relatively weak first 10 months as an argument to the system being trash...and look at whats happening now...something tells me a lot of them will not be around as much...getting egg all over your face is pretty embarrassing...especially when you were the one throwing the egg in the first place...
You can't compare LBP to MGS4 - so saying one is more exemplary or epic than the other is nonsense. I'm more excited about LBP, but I'm also eagerly anticipating MGS4. LBP is a modular, open ended game game that brings to mind platforming puzzles like Lemmings and Mario, on a much more creative scale. MGS4 is an action/shooter game, which typically challenges the technical notion of action games.
They'll both be sweet.
there is no thin line for me i will take mgs4 over LBP any day. I would take mgs4 over any game only game that would be hard for me to decide over would be GT5 but aside from that mgs4 anyday. Even GOW gets pushed back for mgs4. With mgs4 i know what to expect and i expect to be scream wow every half hr. Wheter or not the game meets my expectations will be known in a couple of months. LBP for me is jst one of those games you play and play and play and have fun sorta like a party game but its not always there for you. I have to be in a certain mood to play LBP but for mgs4 no mood required. jst pick up and play even if you dnt feel like it and before you know it ur having a blast. Thats what i expect from mgs4 only reason i say this is all the previous ones made me feel this way at least 4 a full month. My attention span for games dosent usually go beyond a week. Only warhawk has stood the test of time
Subject says it all.
LittleBigPlanet actually has my girlfriend eagerly awaiting the release date. Here's hoping that elusive Beta is soon
This game is going to be great because my fiancee' is looking forward to it which means....................
I GET TO PLAY THIS FOR HOURS AND SHE WILL ACTUALLY BE OK WITH IT YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HECK SHE WILL PLAY IT WITH ME WOOP WOOP
as of right now the only games she is like that about are
Burnout Paradise (she likes the crash cam)
Super rub-a-dub she actually holds records
and Guitar Hero (she is about to start her 3rd playthrough and is moving up to hard mode)
but man is this game going to be awesome she flipped out when she saw the trailer she was like "OMG those little guys are soooo cute"
Well I will be getting both, so it doesn't really matter for me. Oh and why isn't White Knight Story on that poll?
*edit* Oops read your comment wrong! lol...
I don't know, I'm really looking forward to that title. Amazon seems to be showing a release date of October for this year which makes sense.
I'm still waiting on MGS4 more than any other but it's good to see LBP doing so well. My girlfriend and I eagerly await LBP and I know a couple mates who are getting their PS3 specifically for it.
I'm surprised at the small % for Resistance2 but i think that's down to not everyone knowing about it yet.
As Mighty_Douche says though, PS3 owners have a very exciting year ahead!
agree Keo. MGS4 is my game thus far for the entire system. I want this game above all. I think Resistence will climb that list pretty quick after some of the early year big titles hit. I'm not completely sold on LBP but MGS4 has my money 10x over.
but I expect LBP to last much longer. Creativity and new things popping up everywhere will certainly fuel that. MGS4, once you beat it enough times, there won't be anything else to it. MGO maybe, but it seems that the full version is something different.
Yeah, LBP has endless possibilities. by the sounds of things the only real limitation is your imagination.
I wonder if you'll be able to create Shadow Moses Island, we've seen wooden tanks, how about a wooden Rex? Wood Gear Solid? Doesn't quite have the same ring huh?
If this game gets big enough, Sony and Media Molecule would be FOOLS to not update it and patch it with downloadable textures and materials. My only hope is that they wouldn't nickel and dime people ala Motorstorm and Need for Speed. Give an abundance of content in the updates, especially if they were to cost money.
Strawberry Jam Gear Solid?
EDIT: Although if LBP is popular enough they wouldn't have to charge. Maybe I'm being a little too hopeful but from all the good press LBP has had and with more to come I'm sure, it'd be nice if the game does so incredibly well there would be free updated content
In an early demonstration, someone said you could use pictures from you HDD, so an update had better contain more than just textures. If we cannot use pictures on HDD as textures, then the developers are either stupid, or they have gimped the game intentionally; either way though, my desire for the game would be reduced. To be honest, I don't know what an update could contain, because you can do almost anything as is. Presuming the game works as advertised of course.
If they pull a Burnout on us, and have the add-ons planned before the game is even released, I may have to personally boycott.
Never changed my mind, MGS4 has been my most anticipated game since its announcement.
It has been my most anticipated game since I bought my PS3, Dec 2006...
If i had to choose between MGS4 or LBP,than i would choose MGS4 easily!
PS3 gamers change minds - now want MGS 4 as much as LittleBigPlanet.
Have the interest going down in MGS4 becouse i thought that game had bigger popularity than LBP.
I don't know really. LBP can appeal to anyone (If you look past the cute exterior) as I said above, the only limitation is your imagination, if you're a creative sort of person than LBP will keep you playing for years to come.
MGS is a bit of a niche title. The long cut scenes put a lot of people off, the sometimes wacky story puts people off and the nut grabbing and pant wetting puts other people off. I do know several people who were never fans of the original trilogy that had their jaws firmly on the floor from seeing the 15 minute gameplay footage vowing to get a PS3 as soon as it releases. But I reckon we'll see a lot of MGS4's being traded in because "it wasn't what I expected" but I think nearly everyone will get LBP and I really don't think it'll let anyone down.
LBP def. has potential but I cannot anticipate a game right now more than I do MGS4.
I'm equally hyped for both. Always have been. LittleBigPlanet is the most original new IP I've seen on a console in quite a while.
Both of these games will be epic.
One of the few games on the PS3 that really interest me is Little Big Planet. And God of War III is one of them also but won't arrive till 2009. That's about it. God of War on my PSP will keep me busy though from March on. Sony, great idea: get Little Big Planet on the PSP also
You mean, after all the crap you had been flinging with all 100 'confirmed' reports of MGS4 coming to the 360, that you are not even interested in the game?...
I have to admit...I am not the least bit suprised at that...
oh dude. you're just awkward. do you really think anybody trusts what you say? if you do .. i feel very sorry for you. lolol .. idiot.
sorry i forgot to mention im a bipolar schizophernic.
what amazes me about you is that your avatar pisses on SONY, but you clearly state you have a psp? so in essence, would you be pissing on yourself ? or you just an undercover SONY LOVA
i'm uber hyped for both games... MGS4 for me alone and LBP for my family
I can't believe Killzone 2 is in 4th place and R:FOM 2 is in 6th place.
If this was an XBOX list those 2 games would be 1 and 2. However, I think that the average PS3 fan has a more diverse taste in gaming. Personally, I find fps games refreshing because I've never been into them before - Thanks alot Insomniac-. My votes was for MGS though with RFOM and Killzone not far behind. GTA though. That game is so played out.
Wow Marts ingnored by over 200 users, WTF... how did that happen?? PS3 users don't care if it's LBP, or MGS4... just release a good f*cking game already!
boy .. there are enough really good games on the ps3. do you live in the woods?
do u live in the woods ROLF LOL
There can never be enough.
If there are so many good games on PS3 why am I constantly still waiting to buy one? Uncharted is as good as it gets so far, and while it was enjoyable, it didn't last that long.
Both games will be great.. LBP has the potential of changing console gaming as we know it.. and MGS4 will just be outstanding, and will stand out as the best stealth game ever..
I honestly thing it will be between Brawl, MGS4, and God of War 3 if it shows up in 08..
i would have added Resident Evil 5 to the list but capcom doesnt believe in using system potential.. so it'll be another regular game with a big name.. Tho i hope they prove me wrong, probably not tho
with already 5 titles i am buying for sure in 08 , i hope to GOD it comes out in 09 . unlike other people i like to enjoy playing these games and not rush into buying another one . I still havnt finish ratchet yet ...
I've already beaten Ratchet twice! (Golden Groovitron FTW) and you're right GOW3 should wait until 09, because if I have MGS4 and GOW3 together I'll just have a seizure and die.
MGS4 and Little Big Planet always have been my most wanted along with GTA4,RE5,and SH5.
funny, before the article I thought that it was Metal Gear Solid that had more hype.
Personally I'll pass on LBP, it looks like a fine game and all, but not really my thing.
I've always wanted MGS4 over LBP. But, LBP is going to be sooooooo awesome.
Out of the two, I'm looking forward to MGS4 more. I'm sure both will be very good games and their release can't come too soon.
We want both,both will be great games and both will go 1v1 for Game Of The Year 2008;)
its a pity you can only vote for one, Cause theirs loads on that list that i want. At least we're spoiled for choice it,s all up hill from here......
will never see Banjo and Halo wars on top of the x360's users most anticipated games
What sacrilege!. Haha just kidding. Great. I finally saw the the demo last night and i can understand completely why this game is getting alot of praise and attention. LBP will change the way we play games. This again proves my point that the PS3 crowd likes variety and the PS brand delivers them and treat them with equal attention. BTW, excellent pic for the article. Snake Sack boy
PS3rd users are just dumb. They actually care for a stupid game like Kiddy Big World more than MGS? ROFL. Just listen to some of the latest IGN podcasts. They CLEARLY detail for all you stupid n00bs just how boring and lame Kiddy Big World will turn out. Just watch.
this is an example people
We PS3 owners will be dumb for be interested into "kiddy" game. While you continue to suck on that banana.
I dont have a ps3 but I always figured MGS4 was the most wanted game. For me it sure as hell would be. will be intresting to see the sales( I see mgs doing better, at least in the short run).
with LBP releasing, my copy of warhawk is gonna start collecting dust. Good thing I bought that Disc Cleaner.
I will just be glad when MGS4 comes out so people shut up about it.
But honestly I don't have time to design boards and download/play other people's boards. I think that will be very time consuming and I push to have time for games with a few online multiplayer matches as it is. Otherwise I would seriously be considering LBP.
There goes 120 bucks out of my wallet.
thats funny since little big planet is a casual game.. .. i guess all that hate talk over the wii is cause the ps3 is losing so bad
The hardcore don't hate the wii because its casual. The Hardcore hate the wii because its 99% casual and 1% Hardcore.
actually, the ps3 caters both hardcore and casual audiences and plus the ps3 is not losing as you think
LBP is better for families than MGS4 is. MGS4 looks like a great game though. :)
