IGN: CES 2009: Kodu Impressions

At CES 2009 in Las Vegas this week, Microsoft showed off Kodu, an ambitious new project set to debut on the Xbox Community Games Channel this spring. Pronounced "Code-u," the title is one (big) part game creator and second part game. While comparisons have already been made to efforts such as LittleBigPlanet, Kodu's creation tools are much more robust, its depth -- demonstrated to IGN in a private suite on Friday -- staggering.

Is there any substance?

It's a game creator. That's like being mad that RPG maker doesn't have a great story. You make the game.

Ever hear of Alice?

You know, the thing that this is really ripping off...and we can all go download it and make games right now.

This is just supposed to be a introduction to programming for kids, but with the popularity of LBP...they're trying to make it into something more. This company is a joke. Not an original bone in their body. LOL

No wonder with a years head start sony is right on their back and nintendo is long gone.

But LBPs main appeal is it is fun and charming. This looks cold, but LBP did a fantastic job of breaking this sort of market, and now Microsoft is looking to take advantage of the great work LBP has done.

No one is going to use it if it has too many options.

"Kodu doesn't merely enable users to arrange a series of templates, but build worlds from scratch, setting their shapes and sizes, placing objects and inhabitants, devising sets of characteristics, behavioral logics, and more. Casual players will be able to jump into the experience easily using a series of pre-designed configurations. Those with a little more determination, though, will be able to build their experiences ground-up. Microsoft calls it visual programming and having seen it in action Kodu seems to deliver just."

LBP comes no where near this creation tool. XNA tools and now code-u are on a completely different level and can be used to actually make games from scratch. Heck if someone was skilled enough they could make a LBP clone if they wanted. Honestly I don't see what's so amazing about LBP when stuff like this and community games are the real steps forward in changing the way we game.
