Sony: We Want Sackboy To Be Huge On PS3

Pop quiz, hotshot. When you think of PS3 do think of Sackboy?

Well...you probably don't yet, considering LittleBigPlanet has been delayed many a time, causing more heartbreak than this writer would care to recollect.

But the title is supposedly coming out this October. And if Sony has their way, Sackboy, the title's star, will be huge.

"We want 'LittleBigPlanet' to lead the charge into a new genre of gaming and turn Sackboy into the next emblematic character for the PS3," said Sony product marketing manager Mark Valledor in an interview with Ad Age.

"We have coined 2008 'the year of the PS3' and are confident that with the launch of "LittleBigPlanet," we will continue to see the momentum build throughout the end of this year and on to the next. ... This is a very big title for us."

Just keep LBP on schedule this time, Sony. That's all we ask.

So do I, people need to know about this game. I think it will be a great game, and can't wait to make my own level. Along with playing many of the levels from people here.

I don't see why Sackboy can't be big, I mean you can customize sackboy into most iconic video game characters. Now that I think about it doesn't even have to be from a video game, you can have your sackboy look like a character from a movie or comic book.

If the game is as fun as it looks then Sackboy is going to be big and depending on Sony's Marketing Sackboy can be even bigger.

I also think Sony wants everyone to get into Sackboy but pictures with Sackboy pissing on xbox live isn't helping his image.

i'm not very creative but i'm a great critic when it comes to things like this so i'm most interested in playing other peoples levels and thrashing them about it. lol

When I hear the name Sackboy, disturbing images begin to pop up.

Sackboy is by far the most perfect console mascot ever.

He is simple, cute, and recognizable in his plainest form, and still simple, cute and recognizable when customized to look like any of the other countless characters that are typically or always recognized as Sony characters. He can play the part of a Helghast, or Ratchet, or Solid Snake, or whatever else they want him to be. It's a great creation.
