Sony's great white hope - the quite wonderful looking LittleBigPlanet - looks nearer to finding its way into our homes, with Sony insiders confirming they are working to get the game out in the UK for this September.
I was hoping for an April release, and even when I was reading the rumours of the delay I was hoping for June/July... d'oh
Who cares about this game? If Uncharted (labeled as having the best graphics on any console to date) can't sell a million in its first month out then this game will be flopp! I know sony is trying to get the kids and the girls into this(yes this is game for those i just listed) but the wii already has that base! Another flop in the making just like lair, heavenly sword, uncharted and just list any other first party PS3 games!
Edit- LOL!! Harry did you just read what you said?? Uncharted will sell a million in the next month or so!! LOL!! you just proved what I said!! If it takes 2 months for a game to sell a million on a PS3 then this game is going to be a flop! Look at the 640p, graphically inferior game, and just Halo 2.5 but was called Halo3! It only took an hour for it to sell 2 million copies! 3 months later it has sold 8 million! M$ knows how to market and hype up a game! Sony doesn't know how to do it anymore because they didn't have to do much when the PS2 came out!
haha your so jealous... and Uncharted is gonna sale a million within the next month and 2 or 3 in its lifetime hahahaha... Little Big Planet is gonna be Revolutionary. Stop being jealous. PS3 has great games coming and they are gonna do great... the userbase is growing
Sack boy will be Sony's Mario.
GREAT WHITE HOPE MY ASSS ppl whud stop USING that racist quote
Before I say this I'd like to point out that I'm black.
I'm sorry, but "Great black hope" doesn't have quite the same ring to it. You don't call historians racist for calling it the "Black Plague", it's idiotic to turn every reference to white or black into something involving race. White is universally accepted as a color of renewal, black as a color of decay. Does this have ANYTHING to do with the color of my skin? No, and I'm not offended by it in any way. It's people who get offended by things like this that give we African Americans a bad image as a race.
Then that would mean April release in the US. :)
One can only hope...
P.S. Sorry UK, i live in Mexico and get the same release dates as you, although i do import everything from the states, i hate waiting.
Isn't "great white hope" a term coined for white boxers in the 40's to 60's, and maybe even the 70's, when black boxers were totally dominant(and at last allowed in the ring)?
If it is it sounds kinda racist to me.
Not sure though, I'm not an american citizen. Not even close =)
Expect a HUGE lull this Summer...Again...
Although I agree with you I dont think it will be as bad as 2007's.
At least we will have MGS and GTA, both are really long games.
out on April 1, 2008!
mlb the show will steal the thunder this summer
a couple of months ago sony gave a demonstration of the game and it was working perfectly with great physics and extensive level creation tools so what the hell is taking so long- i wanna play this amazing game already
HOME is taking so long. I highly highly doubt this game will release before HOME is up and running. I am quite sure this is the hold up but no one seems to be listening.
this game with the home beta on the disk, that way if you wanted to get the open Home Beta you would have to buy this game. I think it would be a huge sales feature.
It would be cool and probably push lot of people over the edge to purchase this game. As it does look interesting to me its noty they type of game that i would usually purchase. I will get it anyway because its something new and differant.
maybe im too old/straight.
Casual gamers will eat this up. You are too old for physics/puzzle games? As for the straight thing... I am sure the jury is still out on that one.
It's nothing to do to be old, I just think it's not your type of game.
A side note, I think the delay is because of psn, this game will make psn burn if they didn't make it rigth in the first place.
the ps3 has let me down a bit with game availbility so far.
i think they show stuff to early.
look at 2008.
ps3 we know alot.
as long as mgs4 is this year its all good.
they do tend to show stuff way too early and then "delay" it. However, these games dont have a release date so they arent delayed, they are just shown way too early so people feel as though they are getting delayed.
seems like quite a long long time.......
The game will suck, let's be honest. It's for the little kids.
its for kids but to say it sucks before its out is dumb.
just because its not our type of game doesn't make it bad.
kids might love it.
i still think it would fit more in the wii market.
It´s not a game in the classic way, it´s more to be creative, and yes this game will sell, but not to hardcore gamers like you, but a hardcore gamer like me ;)
your most likely..... 45
If you cant understand it, don`t comment.
this is NOT for kids, it for CREATIVE people.
and by reading your past comments, you are NOT.
so, i guess know i understand where your coming from. lol.
I don't think it will be totally for kids. From what I gather, you will basically be able to do or create any kind of level you want, with any backgrounds/obstacles etc., totally open. I'd imagine there will be a lot of material used that won't be appropriate for children.
Of course, it has been a while since I have read anything about so I could be totally wrong.
I'm interested b/c I like messing around with stuff like that. It'd be cool to make your own levels and see how people respond/solve some puzzles.
Sure, because we all know that kids all have a nice, firm grounding in physics... That's the whole allure of the game, you can use physics to build whatever you want...
logic i used for the Wii, and i guess i was wrong cause the Wii is a jugernaut as far as sakles are concerned. Guess what, Sony and the PS3 need one beacause we don't have one yet.
c'mon who dosent like to play around with cool physics in games! i for one love it!
games like halflife 2 and forza 2 and oblivion etc.. have great physics.
its the kiddy game that puts me of not the quality of the physics.
i also like playing with forge in halo 3 or edit mode in crackdown.
if it was metroid or god of war it would be so much better.
but cute little sack people in primary coloured mini world is not for me as i'm not 8 years old or a girl.
i'm more for mgs4,ff13,kz2 and gt5 as future ps3 games.
each to their own.
I think what draws me to this game more than anything is the ability to create and share physics based puzzles. I think this will be a different type of game then you mentioned, but I think it will be great for the industry and for Sony.
UK release dates were allways late :P
anyway @Bigkev45 and stupid kid Nice_cuppa
Im 22 and graduated in mechanical engineering and art design .. and its one of the few games that I love..'
its for Creative people not for brainless schoolgirls like cough*.. u can Play it .. but I WILL CREATE AND SHARE
EDIT: If kids can make a Creative,challenging,Awesome levels and then share .. I Want to be a KID
Same Here, its going to be such an awesome game. im currently 20 and Im trying to get my B.S. in Aerospace Engineering. this is going to be like a CAD project for Me, LMAO!
your comments were allways intelligent .. its my honor to see someone like u Love this game too..
its about time.. to people find out the Only useful games(for BRAIN) are these games.. solving puzzles isnt enough ..
I WANT TO MAKE MY own PUZZLEs.. its F***ing more challenging than that.. with this Awesome physics and graphics(and funny characters :P) it will be so much FUN too ..
so we can call it a GAME , not a tool..
YOu guys do remember there is a game in there right? With bosses and everything? YOu keep focusing on the level creators but I believe that is just a feature. I remember reading it is a full fledged game. You don't have to create anything. People who suck at that, lke me, will just wait for others to do so and then share.
I don't consider this game as a typical game, and I don't think you should take the gameplay too seriously, in this game it is the fun factor, and the creative factor that counts, and then again the sharring.
SEPTEMBER!!! Oh my god that seems like a long time to wait... Wow, I wonder why it got pushed back so far.
I couldn't believe they just said September, that seems really far I was hoping for early 2008, like March.
I'm getting this game for my PS3 and I did love Viva Pinta, excellent game. ^_^
I am sorely disappointed that a game this anticipated was delayed for an entire year.
Shame on Media Molecule.
just to support what they are doing.
and the people calling it a kids game well i guess you wont find 20+ year olds playing mario right?
