LittleBigPlanet update: It’s Tearaway time

The Sackfolk of LittleBigPlanet are getting very excited for the release of Tearaway on PlayStation Vita later this year and they want to put on the most splendid of welcomes for iota and atoi by creating some simply fantastic levels that will pay tribute to their new friends. But they need YOUR help! (LittleBigPlanet, PS Vita, PS3, Tearaway)

Is this the big news? Bit disappointed to be honest.
JackBNimble  +   443d ago
I hope not, very disappointed if it is.
dcj0524  +   443d ago
Haha. Knew it. Never get hyped for a announcment kids.

Saw that coming! I really wanted to be surprised though. Looks like we'll just have to wait until Gamescom.

I was sort of hoping all previous LBP 1 and 2 DLC would be free. :/ Oh well.

Why don't they release Tearaway on PS4 or Ps3 as well? Yes, I know the Vita needs its own exclusive games but will people actually run out to buy a vita because of tearaway? Not really. It will enjoy very solid sales, but this has the potential to hit very big with the playstation community, its Media Molecule afterall.

I see a PS4 port in a year.

" but will people actually run out to buy a vita because of tearaway? Not really."

Are you an idiot?

While very few (if any) are going to buy a Vita for Teraway alone, it does help the roster. Not only will it be yet another reason to get a Vita, it would also give current supporters something to do. If people actually did what you were suggesting, then Sony might as well just drop Vita support entirely. What is the point when you don't think it should have exclusive that would do better on consoles.

As far as the literal why goes... it might work on the PS4, but it would not work on the PS3. The game uses some touch features (as part of its charm), so the PS3 version would at best be watered down. Even then, this could be applied to any game that is exclusive to the system and brings it back to my first point.

You've done nothing to advance your argument. While I don't like the 3ds, I admit that it has "killer apps" that make people want to purchase the system. Stronger roster of games, etc. It looks like too good of a game to sell like only 300,000 copies. With how low the Vita's install base is, I wouldn't be surprised.

If you're going to reply, don't come at me with insults. Otherwise, your opinion gets disregarded.

It's literally impossible to port the
Games because of the controls. It uses the back touch pad, the camera, the touch screen, the gyroscope and the physical buttons. It's like portinv BF4 to the nes. Not enough buttons.
admiralvic  +   442d ago
While I don't agree with the guy (see above), it's without a doubt possible on the PS4.

Back Touchpad? We got a front touchpad on the DS4. They might be able to assign a button (L3 / R3?) to swap the touchpad to work as the front one too.
Camera? We got the PlayStation eye, so that could be done on the PS3 / 4 with ease. Can't say many would be thrilled to buy a camera just for this though.
Gyroscope? Doesn't the Sixaxis basically have this already? No one really uses it, but the tech is on some level there.
Physical buttons? DS3 and 4 have more buttons than the Vita.

It's certainly possible and without a doubt doable on the PS4, so I have no clue why you think it's as impossible as BF4 on the NES. It's just simply a bad idea (as the Vita needs exclusives! Soul Sacrifice could have also been a PS3 / 4 game, but they made that choice and now I get to enjoy it on the go!) and maybe a little awkward when compared to using a Vita.

And you've done something to advance yours? I don't even know what yours is past "I don't want to buy a Vita, but want this game", which is the only logic I really see. The thing is, you can apply your point to almost any Vita game and just as easily apply it to the Wii U / 3DS too. In the end, your logic is really just saying "Stop making Vita games and make more PS3 / PS4 games because I don't want a Vita", which is wrong. If Sony wants to support the device, then they have to expect some games to sell poorly at the start. Not like Tearaway is that much "better looking" than WipEout 2048, Uncharted GA, Soul Sacrifice, LittleBigPlanet Vita, or Gravity Daze.

"If you're going to reply, don't come at me with insults. Otherwise, your opinion gets disregarded."

Insults? There was just 1 and even then it wasn't that insulting or uncalled for. You pretty much post that you want the Vita to die and expect a game that DCJ0524 explained quite nicely would be a hassle / costly to even get working on the PS4 in the first place. Maybe if you fleshed out your idea and said more than "it deserves to sell more than it will", then maybe you would have someone agree with you.

Didn't read, wall of text.
sherimae2413  +   442d ago
just buy a vita and these depression of wanting to play games that you cant because the lack of platform will be over ^_^

it wont be ported to ps4 or ps3 not when sony knows that these exclusive games are what some people drives to buy a vita for

because if your words hold truth, gravity rush or uncharted GA have been already ported a while ago

I have one lol.
I'm just saying, media molecule has such a huge fanbase on ps3 and who'll go on to ps4. I just want to see their games reach their maximum potential, and sales.
sherimae2413  +   441d ago
you shouldnt be worrying about that besides rex crowle himself had said this is the kind of game he wants to make SOLELY and SPECIFICALLY for the PS VITA

as i have said VITA will have EXCLUSIVES on its own and will still managed to sell on expectations, remember uncharted GA is almost at million sales, 900k plus last june ^_^

its just a lot of people will rant and whine that a certain vita game should also be on ps3/ps4, that i need to get used to ^_^
