William Ho, director for United Front’s ModNation Racers, has said that LittleBigPlanet 2 was necessary to due to all the new changes and features.
Umm I think that another game is ok. Did anyone see all the new things that are going to be in the game? It's **** awesome! The sackbot would've been enough for me to buy LBP2, but no, they have to be epic... Damn you Mm!
This is definately worthy of a sequel. There are so many things you can do with LBP with updates and creating until you hit a plateau. This sequel will go beyond what was possible in LBP. Although, we already saw impossible things in part 1. Like MM said: "LBP was a game where you create platforming games, but LBP2 will be a platform where you make games"
But the list of features is entirely epic. The bar has been raised for the Play. Create. Share. genre. You will be able to build your own games! The way you want! The possibilities are literally endless.
LBP2 was necessary because the features which have been confirmed by Game Informer couldn't possibly be patched in. What they're doing now with LBP2 is what they wanted, but couldn't do, due to the lack of resources. Thus Sony bought them out and the outcome of this will be far beyond all expectations.
It's not like you can just add DLC to your all-star franchise forever.
It really does seem very substantial judging by the Game Informer piece. It sounds like they're launching this one as the platform title.
i'm really going to struggle balancing time between LBP2 and GT5 this year. And if Last Guardian is out this year, i'm gonna be done for. Include Test Drive Unlimited 2 and possibly Starhawk this year, by 2011 im gonna look like a freaking vampire
IF they are going to Add all the stuff some news were talking, LBP2 will be Huge in So Many Ways Can't Wait...
it stinks I was late to the Lbp community, I got it last summer and I feel like that's all I played. This time I will get it when it comes out. It's too epic to wai to buyt this time.
cant wait for this sony sure know how to choose their first party studios.
Tell me one thing though, I read that a guy at Mm made a fully working Command & Conquer in LBP2. Does this mean we get camera controls and full 3D now ?
Most likely yes. But the real meat and potatoes of LBP2 will be creating your own GENRES. RPG's, Fighters, FPS's and strategy games will bring a whole new world to LPB2.
My sack is getting hard thinking about this game.
Your sack gets hard? I thought they get smaller? 0_o
Guess the shrinkage causes it to get hard.
but do laugh my arse off!
LOL! I see what you did there :)
Someone who buys LBP2 gets everything LBP2 has to offer, AND LPB1 add-ons? If I bought some LPB1 add-ons, I'd be pissed... Anyway, this "divide" they talk about is reminiscent with all minor and major multiplayer games. The only way around it, is no add-ons, or FREE add-ons. Lord knows these developers and publishers would kill themselves before releasing something free to the public... -_- Criterion Games are undead ;)
im not sure i think from what i read you dont get more lbp1 addons but they dont want to give lbp2 features as addons as it divides the comunity much betwen people who download and dont so lbp2 gives them a chance to start a new slate with all the new feature sets for everyone and i think it said lbp1 dlc gets transfered so what you brought is what you get
No the person who was commenting was saying that the reason they couldn't just sell LBP2 as DLC for LBP is because it would divide the community in half where as releasing it as a new game creates a new community. Anyway I think the way that LBP did it's DLC was fine, they only charged for the tools to build levels, rather than me needing to buy the DLC to to play levels using the new features. Also while I like it when developers release free add-ons for games I think its rude to just act like we deserve it, it does cost money to create the add-ons and people deserve to be paid for their hard work (sorry you hit a pet peeve of mine).
You know what seems awesome? The fact you can make a RPG AND the cutscenes for it. Dammit, I'm hyped up for this one. Dungeon Crawlan adventures with friends = win. Also, I wonder if you can make bullethells? and how would a RTS game work?
You can already make bullet hells for LBP2, theres a space invader homage in the commmunity levels but the principle is the same. And they already made a C&C clone with the new tools from LBP2, no?
"Someone who buys LBP2 gets everything LBP2 has to offer" But aren't you paying for a new game, so Isn't It well In theyre right to do that? I don't understand why someone would be pissed If they've bought the dlc (theyre choice) and they've had the pleasure of playing while the other person hasn't had the opportunity to do so. But now they're buying a NEW game with all the old dlc. Why would they be pissed?
Media Molecule deserve the money. Pre-order the game.
Well I'm disappointed that I didn't get the first one, but I'm going to pre-order this for sure.
:s i always ended up playing comunity levels <_<
That makes sence. cant wait.
Oh god, I hope LBP2 and Starhawk don't come at the same time, I'll never have enough time for both. Curse you Sony for making too much epic games :P
It should not be called LBP2, but LittleBigUniverse!=D Well done again Media Molecule/Sony there's no doubt you'll be getting my money for this game!
MM is more than justified to release LBP2 as a sequel
OH MAN THE PS3 IS SO HARDCORE! /s
