Speaking to VG247, Sony worldwide studios boss Shuhei Yoshida has predicted that Media Molecule blue-sky platformer LittleBigPlanet will be the biggest PS3 game this year on a global level.
It will succeed, and we will party like its SONYs birthday!
It's Yoshida! I love this guy! And he's NOT Shane Kim!! LittleBigPlanet!!!!!!!!!!
Well this game really does have potential to sell millions and millions. Sony must market this game enough however.
completely agree This will sell millions of ps3s worldwide. This game attracts the casuals and the hardcore gamers Equally
I agree. If anything is certain, it is the unlimited potential of Little Big Planet and its appeal to both the hardcore and the casual in all markets. I can see this game being very popular in Europe, especially.
Thank you Thank you everybody.We at Sony are commited to bringing the full Playstation experience this year.Now if you'll excuse me I have more duties to attend to.
No doubt, universal appeal regardless of heritage. Universal appeal regardless of age group, universal appeal regardless of "gaming demographic" (hardcore/casual). If LBP doesn't win game of the year I'll be shocked.
yep it sure will be, every 1 (inc me) i know is buying this game, also there are people who are buyin ps3 cus of this game
Sackboy sure is a cute little thing!
Gosh sure it is really cute!!! :=) I can't wait to start making levels to share with you guys :D
Thing is, all I see is a level designer so far. Where's the "game"?
Well it comes with 50+ already created levels that have an actually story when you play through them (estimated at 12-15 hours in gameplay). There's also a host of mini-games available. Basically, you could spend countless hours on LBP without even creating a single object. Not interested in creating, well just enjoy what the others have created/shared then.
Thing is, is that you don't see a gun, so you don't think it's a game. TGSI
Why does a game need to hold your hand with a story and a concept to be considered a game? With this game, you can create any "game" you want to, whether it's a puzzle action game, a straight up platformer, or a technology / physics demonstration for your friends. The possibilities are nearly endless, and that is why this title is receiving the attention that it is. Media Molecule have created something special here, and it deserves all the hype it can get.
for those who really really have to have guns in their games, in LBP you can make a great big one yourself, and stick wheels on it and ride on it! or just stick it in the background for decoration :P
Lol that is funny. Your mad scientist picture makes me laugh; I never remember his name. TGSI
That's Dr. Emmet Brown...renowned time traveler and brilliant creator of the Flux Capacitor!
NEEDS MORE JIGGAWATTS!
At The Torch Gracias; he is a Genius in the making. It would be nice to see him get involved in LBP too >_>. TGSI
what learned u suck at life
i feel MGS4 had that role:/
Good point. People have no attention span these days.
Exactly. As soon as LBP releases people will forget about it, too. Just as soon as the next big title is announced LBP will be a memory.
It did give PS3 a permanent advantage over x360 in WW console sales However LBP appeals to everyone LBP is backed by an incredible Fall Lineup also comprising of Resistance 2/Motorstorm 2/Socom
Exactly. MGS4 didn't get picked up by people of all demographics. LBP will sell in every territory, to the casual and the hardcore, to the young and the old. MGS4 is AMAZING at what it does, but LBP does its own thing.
This game is going to do extremely well, and it's one month away!
bigger than MGS4? damn.... if they coupled this with a price cut.... sweet lord
Sony done very well to get LittleBigPlanet and the decision to get the game was a very good decision. 26 people working on the game means the game did not cost the amount that a MGS4 would have and it could easily get as amny sales = Profit = More games being made for PS3 = more happy consumers
Unless they cut the price with its launch i dont see any casual gamers choosing this over the Wii. Even though LBP is the far superior game Nintendo could easily market Animal Crossing in the same way as LBP. And since Nintendo is FAR better than Sony at marketing i think Animal Crossing will take a lot of sales away from LBP
Can you blame Sony for being a little rusty when it comes to advertising? They hardly ever had to in the PS2 era but when they did, the adverts were surely some of the most memorable.
for me this game desnt have a price limit thats how good this game is in MY HONEST OPINION this will be Sony's big hit of the year sure MGS4 is ownsome but this game divides flops from ownge THIS GAME WILL BE AWESOME
For quite a while now a lot of people including myself have been saying that this game is the most important release this gen, looks like the people in the know agree, i really can't wait for this game.
Most important release this holiday, maybe. But there will be something better on the horizon. There always is.
LittleFlopPlanet will be the last hope for Sony to win this gen. I wonder if it will be a success......no in`t wont
Flop Human. Infinite Floppery. Go play them.
GOW3? Heavy Rain? Killzone 2? you shush now, or mummy might hear how stupid you really are
ummm....no it won't dumb***. LittleBigPlanet is just the beginning and there are so many other great games coming out for the PS3 but you probable wouldn't know b/c you like to the XboxPleaseFixMe.
I feel bad for you
All that random BS that comes out of your mouth. LBP is better than any crappy 360 game.
i say it'll sell 2 mil in about 3-4 months easily.
why do you think that i play too human and Infinite U
I said go play them.
I hate when droids thinks that every 360 gamers plays flop games, wii are not like you guys that have to play bad games because you have limited games to play
maybe that "excellent 360 line-up" has impaired your ability to spell and use grammar... or sound educated in any way go play whatever it is you play on you (possibly broken) 360, and il play great games on my PS3 (yes it does have them, and it will get many more soon)
I hate when lemmings like Armageddon Knight thinks that Little Big Planet will be a flop when he has never played the damn game and it could be huge. I'll enjoy hearing a fanbrat lemming cry when this game turns out to be awesome.
Why are you here? You obviously don't like Playstation, so why waste your time?
We shouldnt be mocking them! Hahahaha
I heart this game :P
It can go in two important ways. 1. If Sony markets it well it might start selling consoles on a wii level Japan has become a huge casual market and this fits it nicely. 2. Sell well but not in huge numbers about 2 million. There is no way this game will fail.
A $400 console is not going to sell at Wii levels. It will take more than one game to do that.
Wow, an 2D platformer turned 3D!!! Yep, give them Kodo's for taking an old idea and putting user created content into it. "claps hands". That's about all that is new in LBP, it's still is a 2D... ummm, I mean 3D platformer, a game that will appeal to 12 yr or less, or to Nintendo fans. I really find it hard to believe that such a casual game such as LBP will actually turn people to the PS3, when the Wii which is much cheaper and has a much bigger casual library is sitting right next to it. LBP is a niche game that appeals to children, and most don't have the cash to blow on an expensive PS3. Gameplay looks cute for a while, then will be just another platformer.
I think this game looks slow and boring. I don't know one person with a ps3 that is looking forward to this game. Maybe i'm just too old for these type of games.
I like guns though. Why is wrong to like guns?
We all love eachother, thats why we visit N4G everyday. It is because we enjoy having our little arguments together, I have been visiting this website a lot, and always check the comments section to see if others have the same view as mine. We 'fanboys' love other 'fanboys' even though we insult eachother. I know for sure everyone has the following people on their love list: TheMart Breakfast PowerOfGreen Nasim and many others! Increase the love people.. Increaseee! Let me be on your list haha :P
mabey...i think it would be resistance 2 ..not LBP
They shouldn't release LBP OCT 29th it's crazy because RESISTANCE2 is like a week away,they gonna crash in sales. In the end of SEMPTEMBER sounds better,there's no hot games coming out yet, I dont know why hold the game,when it's ready to release,it's stupid.
This game will shock people into submission to a gamers game that they didn't know they wanted I hope that they make it so good that copycats will be intimidated.
