Norway's largest and most popular newspaper reviews LittleBigPlanet.
lol the 6/6 grading system is so weird
It's just the standard in Norwegian tabloids...
lol, yeah, wtf, indeed.
How many copies would you people think this game would sell in the first week of release and after Christmas? My prediction is about 2-3 million in the first week and about 6-8 million after Christmas. I'm sure this game would sell more than all 3 Halo games combined in it's lifetime.
Because when all is said and done, two of the highest rated games in 2008 which are also two of the highest rated games ever, are only found on the PS3. And this is just the beginning. LBP is GOTY contender. Other contenders. MGS4 GTA4 Mirrors edge Mario Galaxy LBP has no competition. It obliterates anything in its path.
It's hard to say. I know several friends with PS3's who I would consider hardcore gamers and they said they weren't buying this game because it was too cutsie/kiddie for them and didn't think they would have the time to make levels. They are more into Racing and FPS type games. I have it preordered myself and I enjoyed the beta, plus I'm thinking of getting this for my g/f so that it can be something to play together.
"Other Contenders ... Mario Galaxy" Wasn't Mario Galaxy out last year.
I dont think this is going to sell as much as Halo.. Dont get me wrong it sounds like a great game but like Apoc said most of the PS3/360 fanbase are more towards the hardcore/shooter/action games not kiddy games and I dont think many parents are going to go out and buy a $400 console so that their 5-11 year old kids can play this game. Now if this game was on the Wii I have no doubt it would sell more than 2 million on its release date and more than 10 million in its lifetime.
Mirror's Edge ? Mario Galaxy ? Are you kidding me ? Here are the contenders for GOTY of 2008: LBP MGS:4 GTA:IV Gears of War:2 Resistance:2 Fallout:3 FarCry:2 Oh yeah, 3 of those are PS3 exclusives. :)
No wonder SONY is releasing the LBP bundle in europe almost all european websites except EDge/eurogamer/gamesradar and their affiliates will give LBP a perfect score X360 is now declared officially dead in europe OHH it was dead there ages ago. LBP is the final nail in the coffin
i, still enjoy playing my pc, ps3 and pc and 360 which is not dead in europe. Thats what people said when mgs4 came but didnt happen lol. Being a gamer great haha. i preorderd saint row 2 on 360, lBP for ps3 and fary cry 2 for pc lol disagree for the truth dame lol
. LBP = The most innovative game of the forever.
Uhm.... Its the ONLY AAA game on the PS3. The other thing getting the score of 9 out of 10 average is a cutscene BluRay with little gameplay on top. This is the first system defining game for the PS3. MGS4 was only for MGS fans and those that want to watch for a story, not much play.
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH AHAHA so MART, it's gone from "hahah the PS3 only has one AAA MGS4" to "hahahahahaa PS3 has no AAA MGS4 is a movie lol" are you going to find an excuse for LBP as well? are you going to feel the need to find an excuse for EVERY AAA PS3 game?? LBP- only for kids GOW3- not enough red on Kratos KZ2- graphics are too good, it's broken my perception of reality Heavy Rain- QTE LOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!!! Uncharted 2- Gears copy LOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!! Resistance 2- wait a sec? the graphics are nearly better than Gears??? OMGIMGONNACRY 1/10!!!!!!!!!!!! ...jeez just accept it, MGS4 is a great game for ANYONE to play- if your over 10 or something years old otherwise it's a bit too difficult to grasp
Who does a friken review out of 6???
A newspaper who also reviews music, film and other media
In this case, it doesn't really matter... 6/6 = 100% = 10/10 = 5/5 = 42/42 = 135654/135654
Pretty much all of the newspapers in norway, I just know one that has 10\10. Btw, I am norwegian;)
its a popular newspaper so why complain? does anyone know if this paper is known for doing a Video Game review?
Where they review the weeks biggest games in the paper. They also have more reviews on their web site.
what I'm talking about!
16 reviews so far and a 9.8 meta score!? I can wait to see the other reviews. Sony better push this game with TV ads.
Definite AAA game, looking at the scores so far not even a 90% game, were looking at a 95% game right here
I got my pre-order ! The media has exploded ! The most revolutionary game of our existence ! I'm going mad with delight ! We love you Littlebigplanet !
time to play
This game was so good they had to bump the standard from 5 to a 6, and give it a perfect score...what? that's right
I'm having a hard time keeping up with all theses perfect scores :D!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"Are you going to play only one game this fall, do not be a bad choice if the game is called "Little Big Planet."" Don't ya just love google's translator? =) anyway, yay for little big planet, it deserves all the scores it got so far.
Sackboy is happy. :)
i know i'm not the only person who did a double take when they thought it said 6/10... :)
i did also
i simply walkinto the shop push people out of my way and claim my prepaid copy then get home and get playing
Haha! Me too man! Damn i love pre-orders..watching all those kids hearts just shatter as i stroll in and claim my copy,love it.
i work at a Future Shop so i'm guaranteed any game i want on release day, with a bit of a staff discount too :)
US IGN gave 9.5 to LBP, they don't want to score a PS3 game higher than GeoW2 http://ps3.ign.com/articles...
Huh? MGS4 already did that with a 10.
oh yeah, I forgot, it was the AU IGN that gave MGS4 a 9.5
FYI this is the most on hated newspaper in Norway. Nice review though..
I agree, when i want a video game review I never chose www.vg.no, because they are more concentrated on news around the world and such(my opinion) But norwegian sites like: www.gamer.no, www.itavisen.no and www.spillmagasinet.no, are a lot better alternatives to game related themes. ;)
this game will dominate the world.
It will be outsold by Wii.
