We hope you didn’t get too excited for the “exciting announcement” regarding the LittleBigPlanet franchise expected today, because the Twitter account has revealed what we can expect it to be, and it doesn’t sound very exciting. - PSLS
Did someone say FREE dlc? Maybe we will get a new game at Gamescom.
I'm thinking there's a chance LBP 3 might be announced for PS3, considering they have a new Ratchet for PS3 in a few months. Hopefully I'm wrong.
LBP is a game that can go far into the future due to level creation, etc. It would be more effective to put it on the PS4, because it will continue to live as more people buy PS4s.
Possibly a dual platform release with content sharing thanks to the cloud to both platforms. :)
Well Into the Nexus sounds like a shorter / simpler game, like Quest for Booty and not a full fledged title (largely going off the price / cross buy aspect). Also unlike R&C, LBP 3 would be a huge push for the PS4 and logically offer far more than the PS3 could dream of. Would be silly to release it for the PS4 when the PS4 was made with developers in mind and yet LBP still gets passed up for the 3.
In yesterday's N4G Article about today's announcement there was a person who said they would lower their expectations so they won't get disappointed. Nice call.
Free DLC is awesome.
If Littlebigplanet continues to be made, it'll be done by the guys who made the Vita version. Media Molecule is busy off making Tearaway and a new IP for PS4. I'm curious of which platform they'll make it for though. PS3 had it's fun with LBP, and keeping player levels and carrying over costumes limited how far they could push, or change the engine, making it (LBP2) feel more like an expansion pack than a full new LBP. So I'm personally hoping it'll be running on a new engine on the PS4. Then, if they can, make a downgraded version for the Vita and PS3, with the NEW DLC crossing over with all 3 platforms. Then at least they can think of adding tons of new features that wont intrude on the old code of LBP1.
First it was Santa Monica hype (turned out their writer returned--snore fest) and now this. They really need to quit hyping stuff unless it really is a big deal. It only let's people down.
They aren't hyping anyone, the Internet just flips out over any little thing. Everyone needs to learn to calm down and wait for announcements instead of letting the hype get to them.
the playstation games are always in the news and always coming out. im still wondering why people here dont have a ps3 or are not getting the ps4 yet? playstation is gaming!
Can people not announce their announcements? The hype it builds will always overshadow what it actually is, why not simply just post it and let everyone find it themselves with no preposition.
It was announced on Twitter, if it's anyone's fault that this turned out disappointing then it's the people who made it bigger than it really was. Twitter exists for posts like this ...
But you have to understand where all these people are coming from. With all the "PS4 craze" still in the air, and Sony teasing even more game announcements, it's easy to assume this is a lot bigger than it ended up being (same with the SSM thing). Instead of hyping small things like this up days before, they should just announce it the day of. These things don't need hype.
Maybe it's a complicated plan to get people numb to the hype train so when something truly hype worthy rolls around, we'll all dismiss it and be super surprised at the announcement....but probably not.
Did people seriously expect LBP3 to be announced before a major gaming event? At least the free DLC is nice to know.
Sony has a history of announcing games prior to big events , though.
My only recent memory of news like that were that F2P vita title. Other than that, bigger titles like TLoU, KZ Mercenary, Gravity Rush, PSASBR were announced at gaming events so one can assume something like LBP3 would be the same.
If I remember correctly LBP 2, Infamous 2, The Last Guardian, Killlzone 3 were all announced a week or 2 before E3
The announced announcements rarely are any good. :(
Everyone should have learned by now to not get their hopes up over a twiter post :D I'm sure we'll get a big LBP announcement next week.
Agreed. I was very curious, but had little to no hope of a new and good game.
Well this is really disappointing. Hopefully we'll see LBP3 at Gamescom.
Really thought this was lbp3 :( hopefully lbp can come to the ps4 some day.
I was very curious, but had little to no hope of a new and good game. Come on, people, it has been what? A month? Two? Internet has gone wild with the Santa Monica teasing for great God of War news. Turns out to be... Coop weapons. Last week: Santa Monica has greeeeat news, prepare to explode in happiness! What was that? A developer with only one great title on his career returning to the studios. Even if you really try to forget and not learn anything, it is still hard to have faith in this "wow, you'll be shocked" marketing moments.
These people are working to announce that kind of stuff (DLC, competitions, etc) and they actually are proud of it so I think in this point you guys are the ones who should reconsider what you complain about. They don't owe you anything and just want to tell people what they've been working on all the time since they make a living out of it, how should they do it if not on Social Media or the PSBlog?
You're right. They are being direct with their fans, but still they know what will happen when they say "awesome news tomorrow, I bet you didn't see this coming" to announce... a hi-res wallpaper. They could surely avoid the hype before it even exists by simply saying "awesome LBP2 announcement tomorrow" or "awesome news about for our development team", but do they choose it? No. They choose the rumors, speculations and "reports". So both are to blame. The jumpers from media and community, and the ones who seeded the exaggerated hype. - PS: About "they don't owe you anything"... We are their consumers. Even if you remove all emotion from the equation, surely they do owe us like any company owe their clients due to the consume relationship/business.
I didn't expect must. But seriously...they need to stop Tweeting "exciting news". Contests are not exciting unless you win.
I'm surprised people were that excited about this news, after all the recent teasers we have received lately that turned bust; I have learned to keep my expectations low :) To them this is probably exciting though, they get to share some Tearaway themed DLC to the public.
I have to admit, if they hadn't hyped this up yesterday I would have thought that this was quite cool news, but they did, and I'm not overly impressed.
Dammit media molecule. Quit trollin my emotions. I want lbp3 on ps4.
LBP3 + DS4 Share Button = instant healthy community of creators.
I kinda like how they're doing this.. it's like tweet about some awesome news to come..it arrives.. on one hand you're disapoint because it's not PS4 news but then you realise they're just continuing their support for the PS3 users who won't be necessarily making that big leap to PS4 this year(like me) which I think is still pretty awesome of them to do. I'm also so behind on keeping up with all these end cycle exclusives they're churning out. Breaking my god damn bank! Plus like people have said already, the big announcements will be in at gamescom and TGS, why would they drop some nuggets right before?
What? This is a good thing :D About time there was a nice healthy comp ;)
Comeon did anyone expect MM to announce something huge, within a week from GC?
"Exciting" /"Little Big Planet" ......contradiction in terms The best thing about it was Stephen Fry....
I was so hyped for this yesterday, haha. Maybe Gamescom... Keep hope alive!
Why do people always set their expectations so high? You obviously know you will always be disappointed. The news is still exciting to me. Having the chance to get artwork from them is awesome, hopefully I can even be a runner up but I doubt it. People have really become so spoiled and ungrateful. It isn't just free DLC, it is mainly a competition to win a PS Vita and some really rare and unique artwork. I personally care more about the artwork myself since I already have a PS Vita.
Hopefully LBP3 at Gamescom, then follow it up with Media Molecules new IP. Man, I love Sony's first party studios, they really stack up with Nintendo's.
little big planet and exciting dont go well together, unless you are 8 years old i guess.
Or you are just completely boring and have no imagination anymore. Probably just that I will assume, any game can be enjoyable. It doesn't always have to have some adult theme. For close minded unimaginative individuals I guess.
