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_Killa3257d 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.

thor3257d 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.

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

MazzingerZ3257d ago (Edited 3257d 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_PUDding3257d 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.

Breakfast3257d 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.

Crazyglues3257d ago (Edited 3257d 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 Foxx3257d ago (Edited 3257d 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

nbsmatambo3257d ago (Edited 3257d ago )

note it said at "LAUNCH"..

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

Omegasyde3257d 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.***

UnSelf3257d 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

Breakfast3257d ago

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

Youre clueless.

rosebowl233257d 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 Gambler3257d 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 933257d ago

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

Enigma_20993256d 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.

pixelsword3256d ago (Edited 3256d 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.

chasuk083256d ago (Edited 3256d 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.

gambare3256d ago (Edited 3256d 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.

gambare3256d ago (Edited 3256d 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.

Saigon3256d 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...

meepmoopmeep3256d ago (Edited 3256d 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.

Bnet3433256d ago

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

himdeel3256d 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 :)

shelbygt333256d ago

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

the_gaming_guy3256d ago

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

CrazzyMan3256d ago (Edited 3256d 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

Crazyglues3257d ago

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