Despite many rumors, Media Molecule has announced that LittleBigPlanet will only be available on Blu-Ray and not via the PlayStation Network.
yeah,they never officially confirmed a PSN version,so yeap.
Because think about how network centric this game is, it's brilliant for PSN
is just a wasted opportunity. It'll still sell great, but I have no idea why you wouldn't do both. I can't imagine they'd have lost money.
To me, it seems like the perfect type of game to have on the PSN. Who knows, it might be some 30 gig game...
Didn't they say that they were going to fill the disc up with as many levels as possible before they release the game on Blu-Ray, so that would mean the game would be huge if you wanted to download it on the PSN
First they said both Blu-ray and PSN which I think was the right choice. Now they will probably release it on PSN as a platinum title at $29.99 in a year or so. With little levels to keep the size down. You can always download the levels you want.
Hmm I thought this was confirmed awhile ago? I'd rather have the box anyway and plus if you pre-order from GameStop or EB Games you get Kratos Sackboy, only available through pre-order.
i always prefer the physical media over download (although if i didn't already have burnout paradise i would jump on that download version). but i do find it odd that LBP isnt available via PSN Store..... it almost seems like it was meant for it... i wonder how much content is on the blu ray
The size of the content is about as big as ones imagination
I'll always choose physical format over digital downloads, cause I'm pretty sure there's no warranty for digital downloads, so if your hdd messes up and everything gets deleted, then you're sh*t out of luck, you gotta pay to download it again. with a physical copy however, if something happens to it, and i have a warranty on it, i can take it back to where i got it and get a replacement at no charge.
Actually, you can just redownload it free of charge. It's actually safer to download it. But I agree, disk based is better.
Oh, really? well, didn't know that. you get a bubble for correcting me.
Saved my butt when I got Motorstorm DLC one time.
Yeah no problem my friend, bubbles back at ya.
I agree. Although, GT:Prologue can only be played while connected to the internet, if you downloaded it. Found that out the hard way.
I wonder how big the game is? In GB.
In Great Britain?
the good things about physical media (bluray) its that u can give the game to a friend when u dont play with it. Plus, it doesnt take spaces on your HDD.
Huh, I was under the impression it was on PSN also? I guess it got so big that they had to turn this into a big time game.
It was initially meant to be on both (and be a small game), but since it was received so well when first presented Sony decided to put their full backing behind the game, and put many more features in the game (which is most of the reason for being delayed) which led to it being much bigger and therefore blu-ray only. This news is quite old, so not quite sure why it's being reported again now.
I thought this was confirmed months ago...
It is. It's still news, just old news. HEHE
It's 'Olds' then.
I know this will sound wierd, but for some reason when a game is downloadable on the PSN also, it just seems like that less important. Right now when most gamers think of downloadable games they think of small arcade type games, when all these great games like Socom, Warhawk are downloadable it just doesnt make those games seem that big anymore. Im honestly not for digital downloads, for now anyway. I rented my first playstation store movie a week ago (Rambo HD) and i literally had to leave my PS3 on all night so it could download, it took 8 hours to download!! 8!! Internet speeds now just cant keep up with digital downloads although I see it being big in the coming years. Oh and LBP WILL BE AMAZING, GOTY AND BLU RAY VERSION FTW!!!
IMHO it would have been an insult to MM had Sony put LBP on PSN. It just such a unique and carefully crafted piece of work to me. This is a game that Sony should want you to not only rush out to the store and buy it day 1, LBP is a game that warrants you to go out and buy it AND a PS3 if you dont already have one. If Sony ramps up their advertising and do something like a PS3 LBP bundle around the Holiday Season... sales will sky rocket. This is a game that WILL appeal to the masses both core and casual alike. I really wish they had a special collectors edition that came with like a book, Art work, and YES Sackboy Plushies.
??? -_- Idiots
And your point is?
ahhahahAhahaHAHAhahahAAHHAahah ahAHahahaHAHaahhahahAhahaHAHAh ahahAAHHAahah ahAHahahaHAHaahhahahAhahaHAHAh ahahAAHHAahah ahAHahahaHAHaahhahahAhahaHAHAh ahahAAHHAahah ahAHahahaHAHaahhahahAhahaHAHAh ahahAAHHAahah ahAHahahaHAHaahhahahAhahaHAHAh ahahAAHHAahah ahAHahahaHAHaahhahahAhahaHAHAh ahahAAHHAahah ahAHahahaHAHa
Shows how much Sony would rather push their rejected disc formant than support their supposed "awesome" FailStation Network. like I said, hahaHAhahaHAHHAhaHAaHAhaHAHAah HA!!
LMFAO rejected disk!? need i remind you it wont the format war you moron, not to mention its the OFFICIAL successor of DVD and how good the sales are doing now the ironic thing, give it 5 years, if you want to buy a film on disk it will have to be Blu-Ray, because there going to stop making DVD in a few years and then what? BD thats what fail. this is good news anyway, i always prefere a disk to downloable (although downloadable works just fine on PSN as i recently bought siren blood curse which is a full game) 9GB download in 12 small parts, easy as fudge with my 320GB PS3, you can only dream of having a console with that much GB ;)
Why would Sony put up a game that's 30+GB on the PSN?...Noone has fast enough internet to download that in less than a day...It'd be pointless too since most still have the 60gb/40gb/80gb HDDs that came with the console...Myself included as I have a 60gb one. Stop being a fanboy and look at it logically. Would you rather go to the store and take half an hour to an hour to play your game? Or would you rather wait a whole day...?
stop trying to rationalize, dumb droids!!!!! hahahaahhaHAHAHhahahhAHah HD DVD is making a comeback!
LOL! Yeah right in your deams mate, in your dreams.
I'm deeply hurt. =( /sarcasm
I kinda wish it had the PSN option. Its one of those games that I'll play more in between other games, so it would be nice to not have to swap discs.
of Warhawk, Siren and GT5:Prologue. Sony may have a hand in this basing the blu-ray only decision on past Digital Download numbers. If they were poor, maybe Sony sees no need for PSN delivery but rather sees greater opportunity with copies fully stocked in stores and bundled PS3s.
Media Molecule saying earlier this year that they planned on the game being a PSN and Blu Ray release, but the game just kept getting bigger, so they figured disc only was the best way to distribute it, with the PSN supporting the DLC. i don't know exactly where i read that, but it was a long time ago.
Iirc at GDC, im not to sure but i read something like that, too.
All I have to say, is that this game will be phenomenal.
see, the good games should come on discs. the great games should give you the option to download, so you can always have it in your machine.
Don't get me wrong, I want the disc too. I'm just saying, I would like the disc to be on the shelf and the game playable in my PS3.
-60 MM built missions -60 tutorial missions -a complete forge kit the developers used available in the game -awesome graphics anyone who knew what this game has become expected nothing less. I suppose SCEE could throw it out there on the PSN @ like 20gigs, but I bet people would complain about the size...
i need my space for other games that are only downloadable and look at how developers are putting other major games on there; buronout paradise.....lbp might be too big for psn
I kinda saw this coming seeing as how the they said on the G4 E3 hands-on preview, he repeated 3 time"It will be an entirely blu-ray experience."
Both would be a much better choice. They don't need to include a huge amount of content in the PSN version if they just make it cheaper. Understandable that they'd promote the Blu-ray version because only a disc game can be a mega hit. But this was like the perfect game to just load up and play instead of having to deal with a disc.
imagine a mgs4 download 50 gigs of download at my con speed it would take months disc for the win
I like the disk version better IMHO
Doesnt really matter to me, I was going to buy the blu-ray version either way.
