A job listing for Media Molecule unveils that the PS3 line-up continues to get bigger and better.
im excited by anything to do with media molecule
Heck yeah! Media Molecule delivered one of the best games of 2008, and even of this generation so far. I'm eager to see what they have to offer next. They've definitely proven themselves so far.
It will be a killer app.
thats just something sony rep would say when they look back at the birth of user generated content in videogames they will point at spore and LBP If these guys pull out another AAA groundbreaking game I will put them up with Hide - Wright and rest of the gang. Im kinda glad that they are known as Media Molecule then have just one guy taking all the glory.
@1.3 - yeah i agree in most cases a single person isnt responsible for a great game, it depends on the entire team
I applied..... I hope I get the job.
You applied? Why you got disagrees,I am not sure,but..... Let me tell you, I have been in the design/modeling/texturing biz for motion pictures,game cinematics, and some in game art for 20 years now. I now own my own studio,a hired gun outfit (freelance),we get hired on all sorts of jobs that fit our style and creativity,usually high end hi rez work,and mainly design. But if their was any company that I would actually want to work for on a regular basis it would be either Media Molecule or Oddworld inhabitants... I was told about some extra talent they were looking for at E3,Art related,and have been pretty tempted to turn in my reel/portfolio... I wish you luck..... As for the news of anything new on LBP or for anything related to Media Molecule I can only see as "fantastic" news...
Like you guys said, it could use Sony's new controller. I bet it's in full 3D. :p
I can see this for sure....As long as they keep that stylish,quirky creativity and innovate,which we all pretty much know they will... New game mechanics like that "melting" gun Alex Evans mentioned in an interview a while back,and real World "fluid physics",environment effects, to name a few.... I would be willing to bet the farm,that this game with that extra backing,and expreience they now have will be astounding,a real classic in the making...
Unless your Hideo Kojima. Then it's all you. Remember thats why MGS:Raiden is going to suck. lol On topic: I could get into LBP, but I respect what they did and i can't wait to see what they're up to now.
Well hopefully it will be more groundbreaking than a 3d side scroller with a level editor.
Well MGS: Raiden will have Kojima involvement now, but the difference with Kojima is that he is responsible for the story of the game. Without him, the game would suck (because he has been involved in the entire story of MGS). The way MGS4 looks on the other hand is a testament to his team.
[email protected] all the trolls here (Tarasque)! But anyway, here comes powerup boxes, paint guns and even more insane cars and toys.
Hmmmm.....He voiced his opinion on the article that is not trolling.
oh lord i just wet myself. this is amazing news. media molecule is amazing.
Oh maybe we have differing def, of Trolls. Personally I don't comment on 360 games. So you can try to find me make comments in articles about Splinter Cell, L4D2, or Developers like Bungie or Rare, but you won't unless they are specifically related to PS3, like "L4D2 coming to PS3" obviously wouldn't count. In fact I never even check the 360 tab bc I don't care about the 360. I don't look for articles that are no where near related to the consoles I own. The only point in doing that is to be a prick, and to waste peoples time commenting on games they will never own.
all these new exclusives for Sony that will be the new "platform exclusives" to take over old ones like FF and MGS... :D
btw MM aren't making LBP PSP, sony's oxford studio is, and MM are helping
oxford, lol. When uneducated wants to teach
Like yourself you mean?
I think you are refering to sony Cambridge.
To be unveiled E3 2010!
Lets hope for a teaser at TGS,for that matter,while we are in "wish mode",lets hope for a full blown unveiling at TGS....
Awesome title for a game! If they are making LBP2 they should call it LittleBigUniverse instead, that sounds so much cooler.
yeh but it also needs to be relevant to the game. i think LittleBigGalaxy could work if they allocate a planet for each player to create a whole world with your own custom continents each with their own levels. This would allow players not to just create single levels but their own LittleBig game if they wanted.
LittleBigGalaxy seems like a natural evolution for the name, BUT Super Mario Galaxy sounds too similar, which is why Sony probably wouldn't want to use that name.
but I'M SOLD!
Yeah, especially after that hardcore AAA, blockbuster, system-seller masterpiece of a game that LBP was.
/\/\/\/\/\/\ ABOVE It is not really necessary to break stat sheets out is it.
hardcore? what are you talking about? AAA? you got that right system seller? why does it need to move consoles? cant it just be a good game? masterpiece of a game? two for two, shame about the rest
/\/\/\/\/\ I will give you the 1 out of the 4 that is it. Was not a blockbuster we can go by sales. It is not near being a hardcore game. AAA this is opinion at best, you might think it was a AAA game but i don't think so, so we should use sales again for that. If you want to say masterpiece that is fine another opinionated statement, but i don think so.
I heard a rumor that it will be a RPG since they worked at lionhead before (fable)
It would be SOOOO damn cool!
And the list of exclusives keep getting bigger. Can't wait to see what they're up to.
Did you just assume they were resting after releasing LBP?
@8.1: And what you said was REALLY necessary? On another note, I'm also anxious to see what they have up their sleeve for their next game.
No Murderdolls, but you sound jealous.
Jealous about what? I still haven't even rented LBP I'm not in too much of a rush to care about this company.
But I'm still giddy with anticipation!! MM Rocked my socks of with LBP. I can't even imagine the awesomeness their next title will contain. Wonder if it'll still be in the "PlayCreateShare" genre they started?
I can only think it will be more create and share stuff if I'm honest. LBP was a great addition to the gaminmg world and hjad a big impact in my mouse and got me and my kids making levelsjust like me and my dad used to play with Lego and Meccano when I was little. It's exactly the kind of thing that people who don't game don't know that games can manage to achieve-my kids show their levels to mates from school and have made TONS of online buds to mess about with on each others stuff and all made possible by a tiny English team in MM and if they bring the same level of imagination to this new project we might see something special again. If they go for 3D/RPG who knows what we'll end up with. Really glad that Sony supported these guys.
You could create and share weapons, vehicles, NPC enemies/allies and build objects to solve puzzles, like a catapult or a battering ram. o.0?! I think I need to change my pants...
i am down with anything that comes from MM .
LOL. I had to. Anyway, hope its good, err...I mean playable, err...playable by me, that is. Nevermind. *goes away*
Motion control.... there you go, your ground breaking game for the PS3.
Little Big Planet 2 wont be ground breaking srry....
Who said it would be LBP 2. I can't see there ever being a sequel to LBP to be honest. It just wouldn't work. Maybe on a new set of hardware perhaps. But I can just see them taking the Sackboy character/the LBP "universe" and doing something different with it. Alas, I think this new guy is probably being hired to work on LBP. It seems to soon for them to be moving onto a new game.
neither will the next halo or the next gears but i bet they will all still be great games
Yeah LittleBigPlanet 2 for sure... What else? Their studio isn't that big and after LBP they for sure are working on a sequel.
i heard that bungie is working on a new original title for xbox 360...sadly it starts with... H
bubbles to you Delumine. Fart PWNED MUCH?
Looks like will be another GOTY with many awards like LBP... Can't wait.
Agree, but remember LBP is not as story driven as the MGS series, LBP focuses more on game play where as MGS is all about story. Take God of war for psp for example, it was made by another studio and they did a pretty good job. In short, LBP should be easy to develop by a team other than MM being that its ultimate focus is game play (play, create, share), but MGS needs Kojima to push the story froward.
for PS3 Owners!! YAY!!!
I would sure welcome LBP 2 not sure how you could do a sequel to that but there you go. Whatever Media Molecule is working on though I sure am interested in seeing it. I enjoyed LBP immensely and haven't laughed so much while playing a game since.....well ever, even the wife who normally hates game loves LBP.
Good news for us PS 3 owners. I look forward to it.
I'm struggling to find where it mentions a new game in the job listing. All it says is: "Media Molecule Ltd; a new independent studio working on a ground-breaking, AAA, PS3 title for Sony Computer Entertainment is currently expanding." So I'm not sure why everyone is assuming this means a new game. Sounds to me like their just talking about LBP.
holy crap. sony needs to aquire media molecule (if they arent going to be a second party) mm is one of the most creative and innovating devs, and they have only made one game. mm ftw
Nice. I like, go MM, can't wait what originality you choose to do next.
Are they sure this isn't ModNation Racers?
Cool. This time I hope they expand on the LBP concept and make a full-blown 3 dimensional level editor. This will put the power of a development studio at the fingertips of a player. I always dreamed of a company that would basically make a game with all the features of Autodesk Maya
i really hope its LittleBigPlanet 2. i was gonna buy the first one but now i can wawit for this
LBP2 without a 199$ or a 249$ in a bundle is worthless. LBP is a kids game (although I own it and its very fun). This is a game kids will clamour over at christmas time. A game that families can play together. There MUST be a price cut in order of a sequel to be launched. Heck, I wouldnt be surprised if they did a LBP Bundle this holiday season with a -100$ price cut.
