Good for them, they must really believe in their company to do that. LBP looks great, good luck to you Sumo.

Shows how much i pay attention. I honestly had no idea Sumo digital had anything to do with LBP3 or FH2.

I know they did some things with Sega a few years back. Most notably the Outrun games (outrun 2 on xbox, 2006 coast to coast for xbox, psp & ps2 and outrun online arcade for psn/xbl) but...yeah. wish them the best.

They also made Broken Sword Angel of Death.

As for Sega they made Sonic Racing Transformed for Android and IOS.

Also interesting fact. Remember that DLC for LBP2 that involved the move? They made that as well.

Interesting, hope to see what they have for the new consoles, especially for the Xbox One.

"..and Forza Horizon 2 (for Xbox 360)"

And for Xbox 360.


mmmmmm, those tasty disagrees... I wonder what i said?

MasterCornholio1200d ago

"LittleBigPlanet 3 Dev"

And for PlayStation.

"I wonder what i said?"

Basically you said that Forza Horizon 2 was the only notable game that they produced. You do know that they worked on the Little Big Planet Franchise for PS3 and PS4 right? Which means that your "especially" should have included PlayStation platforms as well.

There's a reason why you got those disagrees and that's for shunning the work that these developers did on the PlayStation platform.

P.S I knew I played one of their games before. I loved Broken Sword Angel of Death.

GodGinrai1200d ago

hopefully that means, that their good relationship with both companies means they do right by gamers and make use of what both platforms have to offer, as best they can.

I think thats a bit of a reach Master. He basically said that he cant wait to see what they come up with for Xbox One, Forza Horizon 2(X360) and Xbox 360. He obviously doesnt play a PS4 so there is no interest LBP3.

We both assume, but im pretty sure im closer to fact than your fiction.

maniacmayhem1199d ago

He can't wait to play what they make "especially for the Xbox One."...why would he put the PlayStation?

Does he even own a playstation?

"..that's for shunning the work that these developers did on the PlayStation platform."

Wow...where did you get all that from!?

"Wow...where did you get all that from!?"

What he said in that comment doesn't change what he said about Little Big Planet in the past.You can look at his comment history and see that.


Precisely. They did do good work on multiple platforms and I hope they continue to do it. Hopefully we might see a new IP from them in the future.


"We both assume, but im pretty sure im closer to fact than your fiction."

Not fiction at all just look at his comment history.
