LittleBigPlanet 3 Arrives on November 18 For PS4 and PS3

E3′s announcement of LittleBigPlanet 3 was exciting. It had all the fun-loving humor of the series, plus the reveal of new features and the information that all LBP 1 and 2 user-generated content will be playable. What wasn’t known was the release date, and Sony revealed today that the game will be coming out on November 18, 2014. In a pleasant surprise, the PlayStation 3 will also be getting a version of LBP 3. It was thought that it was a PS4 exclusive, but it will be released on the same date for both platforms. Pre-order DLC will also be available on the PS4 version, with content from Dragon Age: Inquisition available, and some PS4-exclusive costume packs that are also retailer-exclusive. While that particular bit of news isn’t quite so good, the game getting a PS3 release is. It should enable this to be the best-selling entry in the series to date, and it gives PS3 owners a chance to enjoy a current game without the need to upgrade their hardware.

Cross gen sweet for some, bummer for others.

Probably the fanboys who cant call it exclusive to PS4. Anyways I think is not a terrible problem. Larger player count for more user content that is if the game are connected in that sort of way and I really have no clue what LBP could do as a true next gen game anyways

XiNarutoUzumaki1961d ago (Edited 1961d ago )

Forza Horizon 2 isn't a Xbone exclusive either then?

The PS4 version will be 1080p 60FPS. I hope It brings something new to the series. I hated when it was announce that it would be on PS3 too because it would hold back the PS4, but LPB isn't a graphical demanding game. it will be fine.

Abash1961d ago

Can't wait to play it on PS4, and I love that they are giving out a Sackboy plush and a ton of DLC for pre-ordering.

November 18th can't come soon enough

lawson you were just owned by xinarutouzumaki. take a bow

xHeavYx1961d ago

The dude with the Halo pic comes to a Sony article to dish on fanboys, SMH

Can't wait to play this game, I had a lot of fun with LBP 2

Delive1960d ago

I'm slightly worried that the ps3 version will hold back the ps4 version. Graphics are one thing and frame rate too, but that cannot account for the gameplay improvements with more memory and processing power. Larger world's with more on screen action, improved physics and a bigger canvas to create on are some 5 hinges that could be affected.

XiSasukeUchiha1960d ago


Bro chill it's a PS exclusive.


Our 1080/60fps list is over 9000!

LAWSON721960d ago (Edited 1960d ago )

Yep you caught me I am a huge fanboy. /s Meanwhile I am playing a PS3, I just simply state my view on Sony and just so happens to not be me kissing their ass

I was not talking about Horizon 2 but okay? Yeah dirty pump I got owned? Anyways LBP3 is the same game on both systems while Horizon 2 is made by different devs and it actually takes advantage of Xbone features not available on 360. So technically more of a exclusive than LBP3, unless of course you prefer FPS and res more than next gen features like drivatars, next gen game engine, and dynamic weather as well as the 1080p.

Anyways that was not my point just simply stating who are the ones upset by the exclusitivity, just as usual a bunch of fanboys pull things out their ass that anyone with one of the most successful and iconic franchises in their avatar is a Xbone fanboy. So they bring up a game I don't remotely care about like they are proving a point when simple fact is they are not. They just try to find flamebait where is none.

Once again the vita is left out, lol.

XiNarutoUzumaki1961d ago (Edited 1961d ago )

The Vita already has the best version of the entire LBP series to date

Sony hasn't abandoned the Vita yet. There are 3 interesting games coming to Vita this year. the Vita just needs a title that makes it skyrocket in sales. Sony is still supporting the damn thing. Maybe not like as much a we want, but still... Things might turn around some time.

Edit: Again, Vita has a dedicated LBP game for it. It doesn't need a port of this sequel.

inf3cted11961d ago (Edited 1961d ago )

Just because its the best version, doesnt mean they cant still make a better one.

"Sony is still supporting the damn thing. Maybe not like as much a we want"

I payed 250€ + 30€ for a 16gb card at launch and I would expect some better support. I would have bought a 3DS instead if I knew it was going to be like this.

The amount of games I bought for it is less priced than the console itself.

By the way, thats the same thing as saying : We feel we cant get any profit out of the Vita so we are skipping it.

I guess the Vita will never be treated as a console like all others.

LAWSON721961d ago (Edited 1961d ago )

At this point it really is not surprising. It blows my mind people keep saying Sony is for the gamer yet apparently they don't notice Sony abandoned a $200+ GAMING device shortly after its release. Which is very much unlike Nintendo who turned their failure around by simply trying harder.

It is a shame if the PS3 and PS4 share user created content because the Vita could have been a great addition.

Clogmaster1960d ago

Developer costs of a powerful handheld are possibly too high to be worth the risk.

WeAreLegion1960d ago

Nintendo abandoned the Wii years ago. The PSP is outselling the Wii right now.

DigitalRaptor1960d ago

You just got owned twice in one article. Try not commenting next time, or think it through before trolling badly. They didn't abandon anything other than the PSP Go… 3 years ago.

There are plenty of fantastic games on Vita - just not enough quality AAA. I would love to see more, but they need to secure the success of their PS4 MUCH more. They have been actively supporting 3 platforms, and so you cannot expect the worse performing hardware to get the best of Sony's first-party. Still, the third-party support is great and there are still many interesting games coming to it this year and next.

BTW…. The Vita is outselling the Xbone. How does that make you feel?

inf3cted11961d ago (Edited 1961d ago )

Oh im sorry then, do I need to spend another 200 dollars to buy a PS3 so I can actually play a game portably on my house?

I wish that at least 30% of the games that have been released on the ps3 since the vita release would have been on this console.

TitanUp1960d ago

I don't own a Vita but still yet it has lots of games.
