Limbo Vita outsourced to LittleBigPlanet dev Double Eleven

Joystiq: Playdead is outsourcing the just announced Vita version of Limbo to Double Eleven, the UK team who co-developed LittleBigPlanet for the Sony portable.

Patti expects the Vita port of Limbo to hit "this year," he told Joystiq at last night's PlayStation Indie Arcade.

The port won't support any touchscreen gameplay. (Limbo, PS Vita)

Activision, take notes please. This is how you outsource a game, give it to a developer known for making quality games, AND give them enough time to do so.
VITA owners who have not played Limbo before are in for a treat when they pick this gem up.
Side note, game doesn't need touchscreen features.

Little Big Planet Vita is one of the two best games so far on the little system IMO.

Indeed it is. I've been addicted to it recently as I received the 'Get A Life' trophy just before 1AM last night. I had a blast! The MP is the most secure its ever been thanks to a new patch which gives it a console-like experience and there are plenty of levels to revisit and collect all the bubbles in!

Here's an interesting fact to think about.

This Limbo game would be better on the 3DS Nstead of the vita, due to 3-D effect < fact

Even with H.D. the Vita no contender here.

Limbo would be FUNNER and much more IMMERSIVE on the 3DS rather in H.D. on a Vita < < < < fact fact fact! (: bye now :)

Gamefiles - No game would be better on the 3DS. The Vita is a much better system. And 3D is overrated. It doesn't add anything to portable gaming besides maybe headaches if you play too long.

Did you know Sony tried to own the IP?

lol Limbo would be a much better experience on a 3DS rather a Vita due to 3-D power effect. Fact. Deal with it fanboys and especially this game.

lol head aches

It seems to me that the one having trouble dealing with a fact is you gamefiles, you seen to be somewhat distured, uncomfortable with the fact that game is coming to the psvita, take it easy man is just a video game, dont pay too much attention to little stuff like this.

Seriously, I had the exact same thought as him when I read this.

Killzone will redeem the Vita shoot genre, trust in Killzone. ;)

Its a port and not a new game like CoD: BL Declacified
WalterWJR  +   1047d ago
I will not buy if I have to pay for it again
rezzah  +   1046d ago
It's not like you can buy it without money lol.

I agree though, not going to get it if I need to pay. Got it for $10-15? Not willing to spend a total of $20-30 on the same game for two systems.

Like rezzah said: if you don't pay for it, you're not buying it, in the first place. Which makes your comment kinda redundant.

That said, why do you feel obligated to get a Vita copy? Not every game has cross buy; obviously, a game that wasn't made for the Vita when the console version released shouldn't logically come to you free: it cost them money to make this port, which is part of a separate production process than the console version.

i will buy it if i have to pay for it!!!
memots  +   1046d ago

I see what you did there.
jon1234  +   1046d ago
yes, and what i meant by that is, i have not played the game yet, so i do need to buy it :)
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   1047d ago
It's in great hands then.
placiid  +   1047d ago
i think outland would also be a perfect game for the ps vita
stuntman_mike  +   1047d ago
a perfect fit for vita. this game is awesome.

other games i would love to play on vita:

Mark of the Ninja
Shadow Complex

even tho 2 of them were microsoft exclusive? they could still turn up on another console.

These guys are also making Frozen Synapsis. How big are they? I know they're ex rock star developers so I kinda hope they're not stuck on ports all the time. Something original would be cool from them.
WeAreLegion  +   1046d ago
They have 44 employees. :) These guys are incredible!

LIMBO is going to look incredible on that beautiful OLED screen. Its a good thing that they outsourced this game to competent developers.

@game files

Actually due to the low resolution of the éDSs screen, the poor contrast of its LCD display and the 3D effect Limbo would look terrible on it. So no the game on the 3DS would be much worse. But your not going to believe me because your mad that this game isn't coming to the 3DS.
