LBP will lack "Online Create" mode at Launch.

According to Sam_Protagonist one of the Devs working on LBP. The game will not have online Multiplayer Create mode at the time of the games launch. It is to be patched at a later time, this is a let down for many that wanted to create levels with their online friends. The feature was a big selling point when the game was announced.

That would suck big time... I just don't even see how they could do something this stupid..

Masta_Killa2806d ago

Im sure most people wanted to create stages by themselves anyway. I can't wait to play satges online with friends for sure, but I dont want them ******* up my ideas while im trying to create a stage.

thor2806d ago

Yeah online create would turn into a killfest with players trying to drop huge wooden blocks on each other. Not much creation would go on. But it's still a feature that should be in there. And haven't they gone gold already? They've still got over a month until the game's due out so they should have added this as a launch feature.

Jamie Foxx2806d ago (Edited 2806d ago )

its COMING in a patch(i didnt even know it had this feature its a bonus),for now play the 50+ levels and LEARN to create first, no big deal

MazzingerZ2806d ago (Edited 2806d ago )

LOL I didn't even know that would be possible, I want to create my OWN levels for myself and my kids, I love my PSN friends but if that's the case then when it comes to level creation I prefer to be left alone

Still day 1 purchase for me!!

NO_PUDding2806d ago

Breaksfast, don't be so melodramatic.

You always seem so fair, but how the hell is this a really downer?

It's gonna be in there very soon.

And I don't want to create with people online anyway, I want to play online with people, I didn't even know I could create online multiplayer. Awesome.

If you ever seen buddies horse you'll know you're going to need a little time to practice anyway.

Breakfast2806d ago

Just cause YOU dont want to make crap with other people, doesnt mean I wont.

Id much rather make something with someone else. If you think theyll screw up your map, then stop playing with 10 years olds. Having multiple people working on one map is more productive and funner.

YOU dont have to use the feature if you dont want too. But i do, it was in Halos forge, and that worked out great.

Crazyglues2806d ago (Edited 2806d ago )

No Drama I'm just saying like I said below it depends on the time how long it takes..

For me that was the most exciting part of LBP I really wanted to play other peoples boards because I'm sure mine will suck...

And with so many creative people on the net, it's just something I was really looking forward too, and hoping to check out right out the box...
(because they said they would have a closed beta that would have the best of those boards added to the final game for download at launch)

But I guess if it's not long it won't kill me... just something I was really looking forward too.

Jamie Foxx2806d ago (Edited 2806d ago )

you can play other gamers creations at launch just not create together unless i dont understand what your trying to say bro?

seriously this game rocks im sure the patch will come soon..media molecule i salute you

nbsmatambo2806d ago (Edited 2806d ago )

note it said at "LAUNCH"..

patches could be available the next day, since it isnt "LAUNCH DAY"

Omegasyde2806d ago

1) You don't own a PS3.

2)You probally never will buy a PS3

So why even talk about missing this feature in a game........

...........YOU WILL NEVER BUY.

***Mod's can you please give us the old breakfast who wasn't just a troll but also had a sense of humor? Thanks in advance.***

UnSelf2806d ago

tbh its not that big of a deal.

most ppl who buy games hop on to the multiplayer component first before they even touch the single player mode.

if it was up to me, i would always patch the multiplayer portion of any game weeks later. both to keep the game fresh and arbitrarily allow ppl to at least play the single player mode

Breakfast2806d ago

...who are you, and why do you keep commenting underneath me?

Youre clueless.

rosebowl232806d ago

i doubt many people would have used this feature right away. everyone wants to get used to creating levels themselves and playing levels. then when you get familiar with that the patch will be available to create levels with friends.

not a big deal. i barely even remembered this feature existed.

Real Gambler2806d ago

This is not even a news. They said during E3 that it may not be ready for launch. And guess what it's still not ready.

Worst case, you do part of the level, then give it to your friend who's the only one in the world who can make a big wheel, who then pass it to your second friend who happen to be the only one in the world who can make a red cube in fire. Then, they pass it back to you and you put the finish flag on. A little bit longer, but hey, job will get done anyway even if you cannot make big wheels and red cube yourself.

The biggest concern about LBP is the fact that most levels could be too short. So how many people do you really need to make a short level anyway?? I agree that it should be extremely fun to build a level with online friends, but currently, it's feasible with your friends sitting beside you. If you want to create mayhem, you can still do it.

So, let see:
First, play all levels included with the game
Second, play the best levels those beta testers will have made
Third, start making your own level
Fourth, make a few levels with your friends in-house and have a good laugh.
And then, and only then, hope that the patch is there.

cRaZyLeGs 932806d ago

What a stupid idea! and the game is gold???

Enigma_20992806d ago

Wow.. I sit here... and I read your comment... so full of disappointment and anguish. I start to feel your pain... and think about how much this game means to you, explaining your feelings about this revelation. Such a heart-felt testimony from your person...

Then I remember the other threads you posted in. Like this one for example...

http://n4g.com/NewsCom-2014...

... then I slap my forehead and remember just how utterly full of s*** you are.

pixelsword2806d ago (Edited 2806d ago )

NO one's going to know how to create a game out of the box, and with friends jacking them up, it's not likely I or anyone will want to build with friends for at least until a little after the patch comes out.

So I can wait a little while to be bothered by my friends wanting me to make super penis land with them.

chasuk082806d ago (Edited 2806d ago )

Listen the game has already gone gold, so they got a whole month to work on it. I bet Mm will roll out that patch in the first week :D

And dont forget people this just means we wont be able to create a level online with our freinds. We will still be able to share our creating levels between freinds. Just not make them together online.

gambare2806d ago (Edited 2806d ago )

I'm going to be busy playing the game and playing co op with my friends from launch, why is that news about the delay of a feature of the game so terrible? I mean, we gonna have that feature soon, it's not canceled but delayed, it would be worse if we get the game delayed just for that feature.

anyway I gonna take a LOT of time in creating a level, maybe the patch will be out days before I even finish a simple level.

"The feature was a big selling point when the game was announced. "

the feature IS a selling point, they didn't had removed the feature from the game, they just delay it.

I'm a little bit confuse about this :

"The ability to create with your friends online will come as part of the first major update after the game is released. Offline creating with up to 4 people on one PlayStation 3 however is available right from the get go."

the ability to create..... that means the creation mode will be co op? wait.... then the online co op with custom scenarios isn't affected, is the CREATION CO OP MODE is totally different from the ONLINE CO OP USER CREATED GAME.

gambare2806d ago (Edited 2806d ago )

Okay...... that was a huge misread, is the Create mode, I was hearing about the Creation mode online, in which you are able to create a level with the help of your friend online, I thought it was the online Co op user created content play.

As mentioned above, yes indeed you can play multiplayer with any combination of online and local players. "

ah, and this is good, I can play online sharing my game in the house and play with others online at the same time.

Saigon2806d ago

I think you took this a little too far...this is not that big of a deal, if they said we werent able to create content out of the box, then it would be an issue...I understand why this feature is tking a while...do you...lets hope its ready a couple of weeks after release, but even if its not it still won't be that big of a deal...

meepmoopmeep2806d ago (Edited 2806d ago )

Mrs.Breakfast has a PS3.

i played MGO with her and she tea-bagged me.
brags about it all the time and has a tattoo of it on her back.

i'm a little disappointed about this news, but i was going to create levels on my own at first anyhow so it's not that much of a damper. by the time i become l337 designer the patch should be out.

Bnet3432805d ago

I purchased a PS3 just for this game, WTF man! I wanted to play online from day one.

himdeel2805d ago

...was available and I'll be using my wife as the Guinea pig for the levels I create. I really want LBP just so she and I can play some and create some classically remade levels of her favorite game, Mario Bros.

Besides I wouldn't want my friends to see the levels I create until they are done. What sense does it make to create a level with my friends and then turn around and play those same levels with them that they just helped to create.

TRUE it would be fun to watch my pals die as we test new level designs etc and haggle over what should be placed where and how, but this give me a chance to get a feel for the game before I invite people into my LBP world :)

shelbygt332805d ago

Seriously, you need to double check your PS3 Exclusives list there... Lots of those aren't exclusive at all.

the_gaming_guy2805d ago

This is kinda rubbish. I wanted to make a level based on this http://www.youtube.com/watc...

CrazzyMan2805d ago (Edited 2805d ago )

lol, so you are saying, that PS3 OWNERS should play exclusive games ONLY? =)))

Anyway, on topic, you probably won`t be able to SHARE new created levels ONLINE and play them together, BUT, you still will be able to play those over 50 levels ONLINE with friend + your own created level offline with friends, and probably after 1 month or a little more, ability to SHARE and PLAY you created level ONLINE will be available.

It`s not like anyone going to play ONLY 1 game all this Christmas?

I dont care, i will be spending my time on finishing the levels that come in the disc to learn how to make them, then ill be creating levels by myself, and then create them online with friends when the update comes out, to me is not a big deal

Crazyglues2806d ago

well that all depends on how long will it take for the update to come out... a month... two months... 5 months..?

skynidas2806d ago

I dont think that it will take more than 2 months, if u read the post they said that they are already working on it

micro_invader2806d ago

That's what I was thinking too. I'd finish all the main levels first then start creating.

DavidMacDougall2806d ago

Totally agree i said this on the open zone

Omegasyde2806d ago

Crazy don't feel like you are getting ripped off man. You will get free DLC from other players as well Media Molecule/Sony.

The game is also 4 players online and off line. Thus beating Mario at his own game of superb platforming with multiple people
(SSBM doesn't count)

I also see Nintendo doing the next Mario game where players can play as mario, luigi, toad, koopa in a side scroller. In Fact I call it right now: Nintendo creates next Mario game with 4 player co-op.

Hellsvacancy2806d ago

Its not that much of a big deal - its gonna take a day or two to learn how to create a level let alone upload it online and let others play,

Lbp is not a first day release for me im plannin on buyin it a week later so i dont care....

Breakfast2806d ago

....it depends how long that update is gonna come out.

Multiple minds is greater then one.

Jamegohanssj52806d ago

Be funny if they're like oh the patch will be out the weekend of the launch. ZOMG!

The gaming GOD2806d ago (Edited 2806d ago )

I say that because when you take a look at the game's trophy list, one of the is called the "socialite" trophy.

The socialite trophy is achieved when you along with 3 other people NOT on your friends list create and level.

That trophy right there tells you online create mode is there.

So I think the feature will be in the game at the start. Not something patched into an update like the forum says

thor2806d ago

Socialite trophy is awarded for those who COMPLETE a level with 3 people not on their friends list. Not create. But that level could quite happily be a level that ONE of you has created offline, possibly with other players offline.

Julie2805d ago (Edited 2805d ago )

just now he edited his post...well here is the update:

"Is online create in the game from launch?
No it's not, however it will be included in the first game update after launch. We're working on making this available as quickly as possible, but want to make sure it's right before releasing it.

What does online create actually mean?
Online create, quite simply, is the ability to use the create side of the game in an online multiplayer fashion.

So I can still share my levels?
Absolutely. All of the sharing features of the game are up and running.

And I can still play multiplayer?
Yes, both online and offline multiplayer (or any combination of the two) for playing through the story, or any downloaded levels.

And I can still create levels with my friends offline?
Totally. Up to 4 players can work together on a single PS3 to create levels. Also, you can still work collaboratively with friends to build levels by exchanging them through the share portion of the game.

From my perspective, which you can take or leave, it is well worth getting some practise in with the create side of the game before trying to use it in a multiplayer fashion as it can be somewhat frustrating to get things done if everyone you're working with is still getting used to all the functions. While it's not ideal to have to wait for this feature to be released, it might actually be beneficial to creators until it happens as you'll be able to work out the tools entirely, and figure out how best to work with others on your projects
