Co-founder of Media Molecule confirms that a free PS3 demo of LittleBigPlanet will be hitting the PSN soon.
About damn time, ha! :P Too bad most people who wanted the game already bought it/are buying it as we speak ;)
that wanted the game is not the kind of folks they are after, they are trying to reach those that didn't get a chance to try it out. Cos, as every LBP player knows is that once you try this game you fall in love.
@1.1 - that is sooooo true
Not sure why it would take so long. Basically they could take the beta that was available some time ago and turn that into the demo. What kinds of tweaks would need to be made to do such a thing? I was in the beta and it was cool for a while. I can say I didnt get it when it was released. If there is some tie in between the psp and ps3 then maybe I will pick up both. I like it when there are special connections between the port and console version of games. Some of the best I have played are GeoWars on the wii (has full geo wars retro for DS). Resistance 2 and Retribution. I dont care for the plus mode but I dig the infected. LoZ Wind Waker using the GBA is kind of cool. I also like the PacMan for the GC using the gba to see the whole screen while my kids play the ghosts using the reg cont. If done right, there can be benefit for both the portable and console to work together.
The disagree fairy is on the loose...
they were probably waiting for sales of the game to slow down, that way a demo couldnt really hurt sales of the game, just add to them.
Played the beta and found it boring
Masterchief is right. Most anyone who wanted the game would already have/played it. Of course if they are dropping the price of the console to a more consumer-friendly price bracket, a demo on the PSN makes a great deal of sense. Not that sense and Sony are two words that are often used in the same sentence this gen. Just saying.
this is a waste of time. they need to add create a level online with friends. that was a major selling point before the game came out that they have yet to add.
I think they are still working on that, they mentioned it a while ago, I just can't remember where
It would make sense if it was the PSP version.:S
What are they... 8 months late to the party?
About time. The demo should push a few units.
Why...? This is like..the same thing as the Warhawk Demo. It was stupid to have even brought it out a year after the game was released. Ehh, can't complain, good to have a demo come out.
There's a Warhawk demo?!
Cool I can finally give it a shot. Was gonna gamefly it but had a feeling it would just be a waste of my time.
Well, if you know what you're getting into it shouldn't be a waste of time. edit: Well, you don't have to build a level, ever. You can but you should go through the story mode, which is basic, to get a feel for how things work. At its most basic it's a platformer first, then if you want more there's always the option to try to create your own level. That's where the tough part comes in....
From what I've seen it just seems like I would spend 7 hours building a level then play it for 3 minutes. Doesn't come off as an actual game to me. I'm thankful for this demo. Edit: Is there an actual story mode?
60 levels I believe. You never have to create anything and can still play the game infinitum if you want to. There's literally tens of thousands of user made levels.
But most of them are probably crappy H4H levels made so the author could net some easy trophies :/
I've actually been wanting to try this game. It's a little cute-looking for my taste, but if it's fun, who cares?
long over due
Why so late Sony? It should have been here around last Christmas you know...
I saw the title and thought it was a PSP demo.
