Joystiq had the chance to speak with Media Molecule's Alex Evans about his participation in Sony's E3 2008 press conference. He declared it took him 2 days to create the level demonstrated.
Cant bribe to steal this exclusive I'm going straight to the point about the FF13 multiplatform case: It ruined the SONY relationship It disappointed many fans SONY depended on them to make a great game, to help improve the sales and reptutation of the PS3 Exclusives that tend to go Multi looses interests Ruined the Playstation exclusive trademark Becoming like Capcom(no need for further explanation) Gave one less reason to own a PS3, which it was the PS2 and PS1 that gave Square Enix where they are now. Showed they cared more about money than loyalty Slowing down the FF13 Verses development May question themselves about the storage space and specs they are using when developing FF13 They are looking to seem to betraying another company(like when they ditched Nintendo) Gave something the Xbox fanboys to cheer and make fun of to the Sony fanboys Making themselves look foolish when they made statements like, "We are arent looking forward for Final Fantasy games on different platforms". " The PS3 suits Final Fantasy 13". Made another foolish statement saying it was to reduce the fanboyism, and yet, Last Remnant is a 360 timed exclusive, Infinite Discovery and Star Ocean are 360 exclusives. And other foolish statement when they said FF13 multi was because of the install base, but then why is FF13 verses a PS3 exclusive? hmmmmm
It was impressive. Xbots enjoy playing LIPS LMAO gay ass game
Go pick up your welfare check and then work on your crack addiction
It was a bight spot on the entire event too. It got more laughs, applause and cheers than anything across the 3 conferences.
I'm giving you a bubble, simply because I don't want to see you banished to "1 Bubble" status. You are quite entertaining. PSN ID: Vinnycafonejr
when you have the people developing the game making the level!
i hope people buying the game can be able to do this.
they can, anything shown can be made
I hope by 2 days they don't mean 48 hours.
u have to remember they prob nitpick the whole lvl making sure everything is perfect
people will not make penis lvls like in spore with the penis monsters.
Who disagreed with you?
I'm betting on at least one penisville within hours of launch. I'm thinking they might make it so your level has to be approved before being published for other users to play, or they might just include a report system.
hours ? i think it's gonna take minutes so someone make a d1ck riding the waves
Innovative way to show the crowd. :). But I don't like Boston, CP3 and Hornets champs next year ;).
If you see a Penis Level you can take a screenshot and send it in. Once it is flagged it is taken down until reviewed. Serial flaggers will also get in trouble if they falsely accuse levels of inappropriate material.
heh... if there's anything the internet has ever taught me, it's that there are people who will spend more than 2 days working on these levels and there will be astounding stuff out there. Of course one of the other things the internet has taught me is that 75% of those will be porn. Edit: It seems according to mfwahwah's post that they've got something in check for my latter statement.
Best. Powerpoint. Presentation. EVARRRRRRRR.
That was pretty sweet. I'm definately getting this.
Jeah just think about it. If you ever have to do a presentation, just use LBP. :D Beats the hell out of powerpoint.
I can't wait to try out creating my own level...
The LBP presentation of their financial reports actually made me pay attention, compared to the other conferences...I'M LOOKING AT U NINTENDO!! }=(
This was my favorite part of all the conferences. Presenting the dull but necessary financial statistics and revealing the Greatest Hits line all within a custom made LittleBigPlanet stage was nothing short of genius. It makes it interesting to watch, and reinforces the notion that anything is possible with this game.
Hope the guy who had the idea is getting a bonus. This is E3, this is a game show, and using a game to show boring financial stuff was the idea of the century. What's even greater? This game is a day one purchase for so many PS3 owner. This mean that user created content will likely be out of this world very quickly. There's tons of great creators outhere. If even just one out of every 50000 buyers is any good, we will have extra content forever.
LBP will be one epic game.
Bit disappointed. hoped the video was about the creation of the level not a load of facts and figures played out by Sackboy. Still shows what's possible within LBP. Impressive, and Sackboy Smiling and the start is great :D
If you don't get it, it means you've got one big problem in the head!
As I too am looking forward to LBP, I'm getting it to play through the levels and downloading others creations. The whole build your own level thing is cool, but its just not for me.
there will be many people just like you and there will be people who download others work and never create, others who do both and im sure there will be some who just create. That is one of the gems of UGC, do what you want if you want to.
I hope SONY has more than that. If that game was completed in 2 days, when are they going to release the game, it was supposed to be out last year.
The level was completed in 2 days, not the game.
im sure they had to add a few things to the game to make that work...i doubt they have game covers in the retail game... Thats impressive that they did that in two days! if you dont think so then your free to your opinion
you can upload your own pics...it's gonna be awesome
Even pink wieners, if thats the kind of thing you like.
you can add your own pics into the levels!! FUK YEA thats cool
That level was the coolest sh!t ever! EVER! LBP FTW!!!!!! Screw Banjookoozi
Wow best presentation hands down, that's awesome.
This title has impressed me more and more as time has gone on. I thought that Sony using LBP to make the boring facts and figures part of their presentation more interesting was a stroke of genius. I felt overall that Sonys presentation was the best.
LittleBigPlanet amazes me videos after videos.
It was very unique how Sony incorporated LittleBigPlanet into the presentation. While I was watching it yesterday, I had a smile on my face the entire time while watching it live. The possibilities with LBP are just endless.
Did jack mess up and say 5 billion instead of 5 million playstation units sold in the first six months. I swear it sounds like he said 5 "Billion" Nice presentation though. LBP is just too cool.
with a statement like that, I think sony clearly have won the console war. maybe he was wishful thinking ??
Yeah, he did say billion. It's ok, we all make little mistakes. :)
I WANT TO PLAY IT NOWWWWWWW!!!!!
yea that LBP E3 level was cool and a really good example of the endless stuff you can do in the game.
This heralds in a new age in business presentations!
That was pretty damn unique.
PlAYSTATION CONSOLES has sold over 5 billion COMBINED in the World It's coming up soon though. 140 million PS2's 110 million PS1's 15 million PS3's 35.5 million PSP's 300 MILLION PLAYSTATION CONSOLES HAS BEEN SOLD WORLDWIDE CONFIRMED
uh oh!!! He slipped up... lets chop his head off for saying billion instead of million! GRAB THE AX!
You obviously can't truly comprehend what a billion is let alone 5 billion. But, good for you for being optimistic. @above, don't try to down play it. It is what it is, he made a mistake no need to be silly about it. Too bad you can't be so forgiving when certain other vps make small mistakes.
^^ and here is the king to behead him!
Little Big Planet looks VERY good! I'm not talking about the graphics but I'm talking about what you can actually do in the game itself! 1st day pick up for me!
This game looks interesting and I know you can create your own levels, but what's the point to this game? Does it have a story? Is this game like a Super Mario Brothers game, were you just scroll to the left or right collecting items?
It's just pure gameplay.
It'll have a progressive story, trophy support, and I think 50 pre-made levels, so there will be a bunch of stuff to do besides creating levels.
but whats the point to lbp, not knocking it, but is there actual boards all ready to play or is it a build your own levelk then play, becuase if thats the case then this game is simply not for me.
it comes with already made levels by the developers(not sure on the exact number). then you can create your own levels share them online or download levels others created and play those
It comes with 40 (or 50?) levels right on the disc and the rest is well, all user content. So it's build your level, play our levels, and also build your characters. Along with puzzles and what not for those who like enriching game play, online and all that jazz. So it will be a great addition to the PS3 :D
...SUPER CUTE!!!;) Sack-boy+girl are soooooooooooo CUTE!!!;)
I'd like to see someone, maybe even me, recreate a Super mario bros level if at all possible. I just don't know how expansive this thing can get is all. I always want to know more about it and what ti is going to offer us in terms of freedom, though.
You clearly haven't sean all the videos. You have soooooo much freedom. It is crazy!
Media Molecule, you are my heroes! NOWGIMMEEDAGAME! Please?
I'm not really into guys and little boys enough to want this game.
so you are "somewhat" into guys and little boys? thats sick dog. you need help.
I believe that's what he's trying to come out and say (finally). Good for you! Don't be afraid of your feelings :P
NOOB ahahahahahahahahahahaha this is where i would copy and paste so you really think im laughing HARD at that i dont like boys enough! OMG thats funny
hahhahahah good1 noob ..u should be fanboy of the year o WAIT YOU ARE!? u have been a huge M$ DIK RIDER!! ENJOY
Noobs a homosexual child molester.Im not surprised.
Does the game come with levels already completed or do you have to build it all yourself?
