More bad co-op news. It appears Fable 2 will be launched sans the online co-op mode that was originally promised, but much like the recently announced news of Little Big Planet's missing feature, it will be patched later.
why are gamestudios saying there games are gold (finished) when their not ? Lbp Fable 2 Whats next ?
I'd guess that both MS and Sony want to make sure their respective games hit the scheduled release date, 21. October. However much the fanboys want to argue about which one is best, both titles are huge, and will more or less keep each other at bay. Either getting delayed is ample reason for many to buy a console for the other I'd imagine.
Oh well, at least I hope it gets patch by the time i beat it in a single player mode.
are you trying to compare fable 2 to the epic lbp FAIL!!!!!!
Who cares, its a single player game. Co-op can come later. I wouldn't mind if it was unlockable after you completed it already. At least you would know whoever you play co-op with, knows what he's doing.
Ouch, so Core users are shafted again?
LBP's SP co-op is still there, the only co-op that will be missing at launch is for the level creator.
Is this even true?
Had you properly read my post, you would have seen that I wasn't comparing games quality wise, but rather significance wise. Both games are highly anticipated, and had either been released without competition, they would have shifted significantly more consoles. Whichever will be "best" is atm based mostly on speculation and hype, and is more importantly purely subjective. Personally I hope both games live up to their hype, and more, promoting innovation in gaming, rather than a sales win for "insert favourite company here". Fanboyism really can make one blind...
It's already on the LBP and Fable 2 disc, but they locked it up so that people will play the games the way they think they should be played before they release the..."PATCH!"
i dont mind. i wouldnt wanna play that online. fable is more of a single player experience to me
I'm really not liking this trend.
This or a delay. At least this way you can still experience the game, you'll just have to wait a while for co-op.
Fair enough. As long as it is patched in within a reasonable time frame, I see no problem with it.
they just had to mention Little Big Planet, didn't they.
((they are jealous no one cares for this game called failble))
i care, my cousin and my friends too
they mentioned doggy brown sh1t because they knew you brandead droids would jump all over this article completely forgetting your #1 FLOP won't even launch with the biggest feature of the game. LMFAO. Fable is launching the with #1 feature: the greatest action RPG single player experience known to man. we can wait for coop. poooooor droids :(
No news is worthy unless LBP is mentioned somehow. It doesn't even have to be related to LBP. "This just in Stock Market crashes Great Depression 2 imminent! Sephiroth Sackboy to debut in 1 week!" See, LBP is just universal like that.
Only possible on the 3rd60 the patchbox fix me.
Hmmm, droids talking about patches. what small memories you have. Are you all so worried about fable taking sales from your internet flash game than you're on here bashing fable to stop people from buying it. oh well.
Patches are a good thing to have, not so many on PSN so I hear anyway, unlucky.
The Boxes fail again trying to excuse their own shortcomings with others.
He didn't say what was missing from LBP. He said a missing feature.
Instead of actually finishing the damn game, just release it in a buggy mess with half the promised features and patch it later, what could go wrong?
It's not that bad. It's one feature, and you know nothing about the bugs. Only exception I can think of is AitD, and that was just a mess because of their lame ass play testers not complaining enough.
There still is offline co-op, i wouldn't bother going online with my character anyway, plus they said you can still interact with the purple orbs (people) online you just can't join their worlds.
im happy if it gets patched within 2 weeks after that ill be angry like animal from the muppets. 2 weeks for single player and then the world
lmao @ LBP not launching with its supposed biggest feature. LOOL
LBP's greatest feature? We can still create, play, share which is a lot more than what Fable will have which is what? Play, Collect dust, Cup Coaster? nice.
LittleBigPlanet annoys you, which means it must be an awesome game and you're jealous you can't play it. Prove me wrong.
I still have yet to understand why LBP is so amazing to everyone. It seems as though it's target audience is my little sister. Beanie Babies running and jumping from point A to point B!!! And all the losers that don't have a life will sit there for 3 hours making a level that his friends will play through once for five minutes. This is what I've taken from every trailer. someone educate me.
@bouncy : That's why you've got a flopbox and not a PS3, you can't understand anything except dumb FPS like gears of bore. Nobody can educate you if you're not even able to see this game is the youtube of gaming.
krakdol your response shows why you have a bs3. You can't read a question and understand what he's asking and then give an intelligent answer which is why you play one of those internet flash level editors, spend £50 on it and call it a game. If you had answered him in an intelligent adult manner you might have educated me on the game and i would stop dismissing it. But you didn't so i'll go to kontraband.com and find a similar game there. but then how can we expect the un-teachable to educate anyone.
@Gam71 : LBP firest review : 10/10 Too Human : 6/10 Cry more.
LBP will have it's level editor, just not the co-op editor. Yeah, I think you're stupid. LBP and Fable will both be great for different reasons. Just to be a troll, because that's all you can do.
And I thought LBP's shortcomings were bad. This is disappointing. But hey, at least they put in co-op.
within the first week seems ok
LittleBigPlanet WILL be launched with both online/offline co-op. what's going to be missing is only the online part of "level creator". people have been enjoying the online co-op ever since the Beta was released. big difference :P
It's not a big difference. It's a huge feature that was promised and delayed.
If you don't want people to bring lbp into it then sony fans should stop bringing up lbp in every single 360 thread.
but but this is the most epic RPG since Fable 1
get off the crack
Oh come on...I was seriously looking forward to this feature with my friend who preordered the LE too...it better be in a patch like day after release or something...
it says the first week of the us release which i think is released 4 days before the eu release. Me and a friend of mine are also getting it on release for online co-op so hopefully we'll get it a few days after release.
I wasn't planning on playing Fable 2 online anyway, to be honest...
OR any xbox 360 game for that matter.
Nah, my Gold doesn't run out until... March or something.
Karma police, arrest this man, he talks in maths. He buzzes like a fridge, he's like a detuned radio?
Nice. is that how you get all those bubbles?
This is N4G, I certainly can't have got them from making valid points. :P
karma karma karma karma karma chamelion........
well that's kind of lame, what's next? Starcraft 2 to launch without Bnet?
I call this fake until I see official studio response, so until then it's a rumor and not news.
If he said who told him from the studio, or they had an email about it, or anything fractionally credible I would believe it in a second. I just think it's probably misleading as it is now. It might be an update available at launch with optimized net code.
Why are you guys so worked up about it if they are most likely releasing a patch in the 1st week? =\
You know what game reminds me of LBP? Kung-fu Chaos, i absolutely loved that game, it just had that addictiveness to it especially when playing with 3 other people. LBP looks to have that same addictiveness but more+HD+sackboys:>! Too bad i don't have ps3
Someone has to confirm that its official and not just rumor because this is serious. I don't buy it. N4G has posted rumors as truth before.
lame..but why even mention LBP???Remember it's a map/level editor only with some built in levels.Not a game like fable 2!Sure, a great idea, but what else is great about it?
You're an idiot. Its got over 50 levels with it, as well as an infite number of levels to download about 2 days after its released. The only people who dont "Get" this game have closed minds and no creativity.
Report as offensive. Time for the Ban Hammer!
bathy so if someone doesn't like lbp its purely because the dont "get it". get of your high horse. People are free to like or not like what they want. Are you honestly saying every single gamer out there should like lbp because you do?
C'mon psyckmark--, the great thing is that games like Resistance-2, Gears-2, Fable-2, Killzone-2 etc. are always gonna be there whatsoever, ...the radically different thing about LBP is that it enables average player to absolutely creat any sort of platforming game they like, the themes are infinite, it can be a Prince of Persia game to a Mario Game... with any type of art-style sice there are so many ways to get all types of textures... and it has fully robust physics engine intact... does it stop there? No, you can share your entire game to anybody in the world, and they can improve it even more... Also that it supports co-op play and even co-op level creation, isn't it insane !!! you should've been smart enough to know that already from all the recent news and stuff. Your question is like "Man, When Amazon.com Was Such A Great Site, Why Did They Need To Make Youtube.com???"... Come on man, Amazon is great and everything, but so is ebay, so is ign.com, so is askjolene.com... but what Youtube is, there is nothing else like it... LBP is like Youtube.com, yes, its special, yes its original and yes, its bound to prosper... also that yes, its PS3 exclusive!
No, the people who don't get it usually are the ones saying it's "it's a map/level editor." They ARE close minded and have little creativity. Doesn't matter if they like it or not, they don't understand it. Period. I HATE Halo for many reasons, but I "get" why people like it. See the difference?
I'll not want a co-op player to interfere with my 1st Person Campaign until I've gone through most (all?) the game. No matter to me. The co-op is about replay, and getting through every last bit. No big deal, a week later we'll get an update. no biggie. now, cue the PS3 zealots to scream and cry.
