LittleBigPlanet 2 has been delayed until next year. That's Christmas ruined then. But on the evidence of CVG's recent playtest it'll be well worth the wait
Mario is 20+ years old. Has cereal, Tv shows, clothing, lunchboxes, backpacks, movies etc. to go w/ the games. Sackboy has the most potential to become a world recgonized character in the same way Mario is but it`ll take time. Little Big Planet 1 and 2 are a great start.
but who would win in a fist fight
Mario would get that flame flower and burn Sackboy's sack.
1 "Who would win in a fight between Mario and Sackboy?" 2. "Sackboy" 1. "But Mario can use the flame flower and burn Sackboy's sack" 2 "You forget, Sackboy can turn into anything" 1. "But...-" 2. "-ANYTHING..."
we all know who is really in charge here...
Don't look into weegee's eyes!! Oh, the horror... N4G isn't safe anymore...
Mario has been a household for like 25 years , LBP is fairly new, overall its up to sony to make Sackboy a mascot/ gaming icon, but its up to sony to market it in that way, just like how sega and nintendo pushed mario and sonic
Sackboy has a better chance than Banjo Kazooie
Sackboys key gimmick, is to dress up like other characters so they're not sacks of nothing... That said, I'm sure the shadow boy from limbo and the blob from dragon warrior are next in line to take the throne from mario.
troll punch combo +5!
"Sackboy has a better chance than Banjo Kazooie" I think Banjo & Kazooie have a better chance. I hope Rare is working on the next B&K.
and mario's key gimmick is that he can do everything and Ninty puts him in almost every game they publish and that's kinda CHEAP!
There both extremely fun, and addicting, that said, I'm am hype about LBP2
Agreed! I can't wait for this game, maybe because I regret not taking full advantage of the first. I always got enthusiastic about creating levels yet when I went create a level it kind of felt overwhelming, and i just sucked at creating levels lol. Good think the community is a lot more creative.
They're both on totally different systems.. Do they HAVE to compete?
They have to compete...
Mario can be made in LittleBigPlanet 2. I guess that answers the question. :)
Mario - Can It Compete with LittleBigPlanet 2?
I'm beta testing the game and I'm sure nothing comes even close to the experience LBP brings to the players
Nope....Mario has be running things for 25 years
Holly shit,.they are worse than kotaku,. trolling all day,.. And sack-boy can be Mario,.. Or whatever the fuck he wants,.. So he wins by default.
Sackboy is greater than mario but mario fans, nintendo fans, or just people who like mario will like him more than sackboy. Can mario make a level from scratch? I dont think so.
no, platforming in lbp isn't as satisfying as in Mario
I haven't played a Mario game for along time, because the new ones just don't cut it for me, they feel to much like what the did with alot of Sonic games. Little Big Planet is what ever you what it to be, heck you can make your own Mario game in it. So LBP wins.
So called Wii fanboys, Mario is been over used, Microsoft does it to. So deal with the true, Sackboy will rule Mario and then the WORLD!!!....No really the sack world.
I think they're both pretty okay. (Sonic 1-3 #1 platforming series all time)
I have both Sonic 1, 2, 3 and Knuckles for Sega Genesis, only other Sonic game I really enjoy was Sonic Adventure.
But damn, mario is very old
I think sack boy is well on his way to be sonys mascot like Mario is for nintendo, or I hope he is because he would be a great mascot for the playstation brand. He appeals to everyone like Mario does.
mario jumps to the sky. sackboy curses at physics jumping
I didn't know they were competing.
I guess Sackboy is kind of our Mario if you want to look at it that way. But why always the comparisons? Mario is great and Sackboy is just another kick @$$ character to the Playstation line up.We should really cut out these pointless comparisons. Who cares?
Media Molecule is definitely turning up the heat in the kitchen. Little Big Planet 1 was incredible and Little Big Planet 2 is shaping up to be a blockbuster.
Nope, seriously. :)
That Sony is gonna make sackboy a mascot (even though I believe they should) but lets be logical here... Sony has some serious triple A titles that could easily take the lime-light... They have TOO many exclusive hits... (Ratchet and Clank, Drake's Uncharted:, Metal Gear Solid, Little Big Planet) They could take any of the characters from these games and make them a mascot... and they all equally deserve that spot... the best thing for them to do is to just keep giving us the best exclusives and let US market the glory...
Finally with LBP2 we can bring classic Nintendo games over. Someone will make Mario or Zelda on it thats for sure
droooool^^ i want to create an rpg, i just hope they have made creation much easier this time, it took too long to create levels and i hope i will be able to use my move to carve new objects for my games i will find that much easier than using my ds3 analogue stick
lbp wins for allowing users to create, share and play, also lbp2 has stepped up ponce again to allow you to create full games, lbp2 owns mario quality wise, but not saleswise yet
mario and sackboy are in différent categories already . while mario has very diverse activities, with sackboy you can do much much more . there is no need for them to compete
