After rumors of a LittleBigPlanet Kart game made the rounds earlier today, a new ad, presumably from Destination PlayStation, gives the first look at the game. - PSLS
Wait wait wait why make this when there's mod nation racers that did crap
But then again LBP rocks, so I don't care :D
I love the LBP series so I'll definitely be getting this
It's not bizarre, it's common sense applied way too late, they could have done this right after LBP1, but SCE went with this unkown new IP called Modnation Racers that totally floped and now they're releasing this game that maybe can be more successful than Modnation
United Front Games and Sony SD make Modnation Racers for the Vita! Some how you fans amaze me at how assume what's profitable for a company! If MNR was that big of a flop it most certainly wouldn't be supported. It has a dedicated fanbase, over 5 million UGC to dated uploaded! And the Vita edition looks poised to take care of that content day one. All they are doing is bringing The LBP brand to another genre. Much the way Mario has hon from platforming to RPG, to fighting to party game, to racing and sports. It won't be long before MNR follows suit.
Rule#1 of N4G community Assume everything before you get any information on anything. Theres hundreds of things lbp cart racing can do differently than mnr. But ofcourse being part of the n4g community im just gonna assume they are basically the same thing and that the professionals over at sony will release 2 same games with different names as if they do that often. /rant
bc modnations controls were terrible plus the constant need to drift and massive loadtimes. Glad they are giving a kart game another chance. Im not super excited after modnation making me weary but it could be amazing. No floaty cart controls !!!!!!
lol my kart is floating not jumping through the air is going to show up as a negative for 90% of the reviews lol
Okay first of all MNR was not crap. It was a flawed game that was a lot of fun. Second of all what does that have to do with anything? MNR was not made by Media Molecule so what does that have to do with them? If they want to make a cart game, why can't they give it a try? Is there some law that says you can't have more then one type of game on a single system? They might do it better then MNR.
It matters because theres already a cart game in which you can create things etc... So what can LBP bring thats any different? and if thats the case then why bother? Only so much you can do with this kind of game by these kinds of developers and much of it has already been done to a decent standard. Only thing they can do is make the driving better and they cant make it to realistic otherwise would be wrong in the lbp universe
@Heartnet I guess by that logic no one should make any more shooters since there's Call of Duty.
I thought MNracers was Lbp racer. Honestly I thought it was it without Sackboy.
Probably because the LBP brand is way stronger than the Modnation Racers one. So if Sony wanted to do another carting game they decided it would probably be more easy to sell a LBP, at least that's what I think.
That's what I was thinking......
Mod Racer had decent gameplay but limited weapons and the track creator was ok at best. The Kart and character Creator was unbelievable though. What I imagine with LBPKR is so much more. The ability to pretty much create any type of Kart racer. Drive a Kart onto water and it becomes a boat, or launch buggy Karts and race on the moon. The weapons are going to be insane. Imagine shooting a giant carrot that explodes into bunnies, or drop spike strip traps behind you that are made of springs sending them flying. The level of creativity in LBP always surpassed MNR and I see this so Day one it is for me.
Everybody is talking like ''HEY SONY ALREADY HAS A KART GAME! Called MODNATION RACERS!" So 200 FPS games which are all pretty much the same, is not an issue?
but whats the point you dont see mario cart and nintendo making a competitor for that series do u
@ Lior Well Nintendo did have Diddy Kart Racing. Good game and I thought they should do another. I kind of wish Nintendo would make Party/MP titles use all the Nintty characters. It's always Mario related (other than Smash Bros) I would love to have Link in a Mario Party, or Samus in Mario Golf.
@ NukaCola Diddy Kong Racing was published by Rare, MNR and LBPK are more then likely both going to be published by Sony.
This could be really interesting, I think it's quite good to give Modnation some competition
clone of wii mote clone of wii add ons clone of super smashs brothers incoming clone of super mario kart incoming sony you will never touch nintendo quality give it up.
*Cough* Fanboy *Cough* You see, Sony officially had permission for the Playstation Move, they even admitted it themselves that - Yes, we ARE copying the Wii Remote, but we are improving and enhancing it, The Move turned out to be way better than the Wii Remote. Playstation Move is what the Wii should have been, with a LOT better graphics and innovation.
Im pretty sure this is not only developed by United Front, but is MNR just with a new theme attached, that being LBP. LBP is more marketable I guess, not a bad idea either. I am just moe concerned that one of the ingame screenshots onlt shows 2 player split-screen: I hope there is 4.
What? I don't even...
First Sony Smash Bros. and now LittleBigplanet karting. I wonder whats next. Super God of War Galaxy?
Sackemon. Resistance: Prime The Legend of Drake
I believe "The Legend of Drake" is going to be rated AO.
When I read "The Legend of Drake", an image of Drake dressed up in the iconic green garb Link wears just popped into my mind! LOL. And who who would Sully be? Elena? Chloe? Charlie?
ok there is 100000 shooter and that is normal but 2 karting games is wrong
Yes, yes, Nintendo invented all games. We know... :-/
Who are the characters from Modnation? That was the problem with Modnation racers. CTR play create share would have sold boat loads of copies. The slate for the game was too clean. The game needed an avatar both male and female to build off of. The game was cool but it lacked that soul the LBP has in spades because of the avatar character sackboy.
I can bet the tracks from CTR will be created by the LBP community, the levels I've seen from them have been amazing
More games more Exclusives only on PS-V
I think I'll withhold judgement until it's in my hands.
Sony should just make Sony Kart Racing featuring 1st/2nd and 3rd party characters.
Wow thats such an obvious but epic idea.. I like it sir! :)
I didn't even think of this. It's a fantastic idea. They should just get this out of the way and release a 'mash-up' game with all their first party and some third party characters in a mini-game style... game. Sort of like a mix between Super Smash Bros, Mario Kart, Mario Party and the sort.
This could be like an expansion pack for LBP 2 or a PSN, or Vita title. Why would they make a full fledged kart racer when Mod Nation does it so well already?
"Mod Nation does it so well already?" No way man! Modnation was alot of fun, but the long loading times were a pain. Sure they were only 25 / 35 seconds, but they came up so frequently. Start the game = 2 minutes LOADING MODSPOT.. 30 seconds Go to the Modding garage..another 40 seconds Ok time to build a level! Another 40 seconds. All this has to be done in order to do something in modnation
It can't be a PSV title since it says PS3 on top of the ad.
Hmm, I wish they [Sony] would make a play, create, share FPS :)
I hope this isn't the game Mm is working on. They said they wanted to step away from LBP for a while and make something else. I'm not saying I hate the idea of LBPKarting, but I certainly don't like the idea of a creative studio like Mm wasting talent on the project. Hopefully Sony did the right thing and gave it to another studio.
Mm2 is taking a break from LBP besides this series has been handled by many developers not just Mm2
cool! because i hate the art direction of MDR...
LBP Kart Racing = Sony's Mario Kart
I'm looking forward to this. When I got Mario Kart 7 last year, it didn't grip me as much as the old ones. Sure it was fun, but not as fun as I remember. It literally felt like a rehash, which is something I don't tend to say a lot about Nintendo games because they do change their games up a lot, despite what people think. So I think LBP Karting will be fresh. At least I hope it will be.
Modnation devs are developing this lol
I loved modnation racers and I don't understand this move if it is indeed true. it puts it in direct competition with MNR and Sony has enough difficulty capitalizing on their exclusives to the fullest ... ie sales of Resistance 3, MAG, Socom 4 ... etc ...
Umm im sure there's not direct competition seeing as how modnation is about 2 years old and this game has yet to be released. and all the games you listed saleswise have all eclisped the 1million mark except maybe resistance 3 which last i checked was at about 950,000.
True enuff, good point. I know all of those games are at the million mark, but they had the potential to sell much, much more with proper marketing behind them (which we all know is not one of sonys strengths). Sonys exclusives are top notch and should be selling multiple millions (5-10mil) not just a single stack ... hence why I said "capitalizing to the FULLEST" ... But I get what ur sayin.
Honestly, I could almost call this a "killer app." This is amazing. Kart racing genre is quite frankly the most fun I've ever had in my history of video games. But then again, this will be compared to MarioKartWii no matter what anyone says. I think LBPKart has better potential than Mario Kart.
