Hardcore Gamer: Sadly for gamers who are looking to play the most recent LittleBigPlanet title, there’s still a number of technical issues and game-breaking bugs that completely mar the experience.
Played it through, did not come across a bug, played a lot of user generated levels as well without problems.
My son plays this game daily and I have not once heard since he got it that something has gone wrong and he got it on release day.
It's buggy, take it from me. I love LBP, but online in 3 is almost unplayable. Online create is just a mess.
I played a great 2D platformer based on Family Guy the other day and was insanely impressed. I wish I had more time to spend working in create, at least to build something my 3-year-old with no experience can easily play with his older brothers.
Game works fine, yes it has crashed before, but so has nearly every game I have ever played..... Tis life.....
Nearly every game you've ever played has crashed?
You have never had games freeze on you? Considering the amount of code, it can always happen...... From the ZX48 all the way up to PS4, X1..... I may exagerate with every game, but many many games......
If this were 1987 on the NES, I'd agree with you but come on dude. Less than 1 percent of the thousands of games I've played have crashed.
@InTheLab Go back in the lab, this is not a place for you.
Yup, the bugs are circumscribed issues regarding the manner in which the levels have been built. They do not typically affect user generated levels but they do exist, there's no denying that. It's a shame for those affected, in some cases it seems as though there's no option but to reset their story progress. I think people exaggerate the issues with LBP3 though, I've made several playthroughs without issue, and user generated content is no more affected by these bugs than any other technical game focused on user generated content (people make a lot of broken levels irrespective of bugs). Personally I liked it more than LBP1, but less than LBP2, but I really appreciate the new creation mechanics, they've vastly improved user generated content from what was possible in LBP1 or 2, making UGC way more enjoyable to browse and play. Unfortunately, the game hasn't garnered the same popularity as its predecessors, so there are less creators and players. I do hope the series picks up again. Fundamentally it's a great LittleBigPlanet game, they merely needed to iron out some smaller kinks, and make the campaign a little longer.
It's "hardcoregamer" They make a big sink about a lot of nothing quite often really.
Hmm I wonder where the problems people are seeing, are?
But it isn't..... Not when I play it.
This seems fishy. No one I know who owns it has talked about this.
It's a hardcoregamer article, that's all you need to know.
There's nothing broken about the game for me as I've played it for hours with no problems.
I have a group of buddies that all play it and I haven't heard them bitch about it at all. Hmm.
A group of your friends play lbp?
It's the best way to play the game
Actually yes. They dig the creation aspect of it. I don't play LBP myself because it's just too floaty for me. Gave it a try both on Vita and the new one, but it's not for me. Nice try on being condescending for people liking a certain video game though. Keep it up. :)
@RDR Not being condescending dude I'm just seeing What you guys are playing these days. It says alot. Hope you enjoy it though :)
"It says a lot." What does it say? That some people actually have a PS4 and games to play on it, as opposed to pretending, like you do, while trolling the whole time?
Thanks AussieGamer1, I needed a good laugh this morning! And don't worry about Spotie. Some people are still bummed because Geralt does not have a penis!
Aussie told me via PM, that he believes that PlayStation gamers have the worst tastes and the lowest standards, which I find hilarious coming from somebody who: 1) Has a dudebro set of tastes in games himself. 2) Tells people he owns a PS4, but says things a person who owns one would never say, thus proving he doesn't have one. 3) Hates JRPGs for reason #1. LBP is a gamer's game. It's "childlike" aesthetic says nothing but how charming a game it is to play, otherwise it's a fun game as any other especially with the mountains of free content it provides outside the base game. And yes, you were being condescending right up to your second comment. It's called stealth trolling and you are one of the more obvious ones.
it says a lot about a "man" that bases his masculinity off things a he enjoys. I bet you shy away from cooties too huh. or whatever the equivalent is in stralia
It was pretty buggy when i playing, but haven't played in while since it only took 4 days to platinum.
Hardcoregamer is hardcore into speculative BS articles hating on PlayStation.
Just like dealspawn.com right Spotie? Any article with an unfavorable view of a Sony game or product and they obviously hate Sony.
Hardcore gamer puts out numerous easy to debunk articles slamming Sony or their products in a fashion ANYBODY can see has a specific agenda. The only people agreeing with this article can pretty easily be counted among those who would be considered fanboys of a certain other console. No other site on the Internet corroborates the claim made. Why are you defending it? What, because not EVERY article is so transparent, that means the agenda is not present? Are you really that gullible? Or just that eager to turn a blind eye? GTFOH.
Any examples with links to support your claim like you did but failed miserably with dealspawn.com, Spotie? Or are you just going to bark loudly with your own perceptions of what you personally believe? Defending what Spotie? I'm questioning you because of your paranoid like nature to call everyone and anything a Sony hater if there is more than one article or discussion that doesn't lick Sony's boots. Are you saying that there are no issues with LBP3? That they shouldn't be reported or talked about if there is? Let me guess, because this author is experiencing problems with LBP3 and writing an article about his experience, he hates Sony which of course can be lumped in with a few more articles that may have expressed disappointment in a Sony related game. And of course that equals to this site having an agenda against Sony.
Look it up your damn self. Surely you know how to use the Internet.
Sony can do no wrong. Everyone else can do no right. That pretty much sums up your agenda on N4G.
"Look it up your damn self. Surely you know how to use the Internet." Obviously you don't, I rest my case.
So as you can read by a good number of comments in this very article that people are experiencing issues with LBP3. but yea, blame this website for having an agenda against Sony. It's way easier than actually reading what these problems are. We can put this biased website right next to Dealspawn, Kotaku, Polygon, Forbes and other sites you always like to claim are on some Sony hate agenda. Do you see how absolutely ridiculous you sound, all the time.
The only complain I have regarding LittleBIGPlanet 3 is the laggy gameplay with other players on UGC levels.
I've been hoping for a patch for a while for lbp 3 but not yet sadly, really want to earn trophies in multiplayer plus the bugginess is irritating also. Before I get accused of hating Sony for having valid criticism you can check my trophies, most of the trophies in lbp1 and vita, DLC trophies and the plat in lbp2. Love lbp but I can't even finish 3.
You haven't played it lately have you? They released a huge patch a month of two ago fixing most of the bugs.
Played about two weeks ago with my brother for a few hours, it did crash but we were playing random custom levels. Not sure why people are disagreeing with you for just asking me a question. Disagrees are going mad tonight.
Uh...no, it isn't. I play it all the time. It was fixed quickly after launch.
First I ever heard of such issues, sounds suspicious.
I live on the Xbox side of things , we also get these stupid articles , this is broken that is broken . Never had a problem , I have a day one console it has never been turned off. This looks like one of the most interesting games on the market . Half the articles here are BS.
Only broken thing ive encountered was not being able to progress past the first world. Went back couple months and few patches later seem all good so far
I have had a few problems with this game, there has been a lot of lag when playing online, getting stuck in walls and crashing but, I am still having fun with this game.
The preview mode and camera lock should not be toggled by other players. Performance is way slower than lbp1 or 2 was. The tools bag goes empty (no costumes, objects etc). The dynamic thermo breaks everything, stutters and crashes all the time (waste of time ever using it). Players bounce off the slides if falling onto them from a height (bouncing on the same layer). Can't get out of velociporters at low exit speed when they are both facing up. The power up tool is a broken mess (completely rubbish and unusable). My profile still get wiped. I can glitch through the ps4 controller and roof in the pod. I glich out and teleport when climbing. Also get thrown miles sometimes. I don't even look like I'm connected to the rails with the hat when online. Performance is still terrible. LBP1 looks better and runs far smoother. This is supposed to be a ps4 game :O. These are just a few as I could go on all day. Media Molecule should have made this game :(.
I don't know how so many people in these comments say they haven't exoerienced issues. Every since Christmas when I got it, the online has been an absolute mess. Patch after patch kept noting "bug fixes" and "stability improvements". There were 6 updates with big fixes and stability improvement, but they didn't help all that much. All my friends and I stopped playing the game because online is a broken mess. It's so bad. Back when the first LBP was new, I was stealing wireless internet off neighbors with terrible 13-25% signal strength, sometimes going as low as 7% and THAT back in 2008/2009 was more stable online than little big planet 3 in this day and age where I have my own internet at home. It is an absolute travesty how unstable and unplayable online is. Last time LBP 3 got an update to fix stability and bugs, my friends and I got so excited and went to test it out. It did absolutely nothing. It was still broken and we never went back to the game. Such an awful experience online
Rented it when it released on PS3. Crashed when loading the third level twice. Returned it. Thank God for Gamefly.
I bought ps4 since 6 months and this is the only game I bought and I was disappointed in. I am huge fan for LBP including vita version. I encountered bug where my saves were deleted and I had to restart the game over I was in the 4 or 3 planet. this is where I sold my copy.
I thought itvwas ok seemed tovwork fine. my issue with it was it's too much like ps3 version so it wasn't a next gen title in a way I think they should leave the 2d create and make abjump into 3d version. I guess a morphemes lbp4 vr title would be cool
Greatness Awaits .... Sony getting worse, making it greedy because sales and making remaster and port of dubious quality and even games such as The Order. And the worst and those who defend it.
so much damage control in the comment section
