I'm shocked by those sales numbers in October.

I just hope Sony continues to push this game and word gets out because it's something really special. All the qualities of a game that could keep on selling well after it's release are there in Little Big Planet.

I don't bullsh*t around or create false stories or go easy on the PS3. I just say the truth. I'm as hardcore a gamer as any with my favorites franchises in the past being the likes of Silent Hill, Resident Evil, Final Fantasy, and Grand Theft Auto.

There's been times when I've played Little Big Planet for more hours in one day, than what it took me to beat and get over Metal Gear Solid 4. This is truly a killer app. If this game can't help PS3, then I do think the PS3 is in trouble.

atleast in Europe all PS3 will be bundled with LBP, and more people will be able to enjoy this AMAZING experience. =)
of`course there will be resistance 2, motorstorm:PR and maybe other game bundles, but by default it will be bundled with LBP.
So expect +1,5 mln. to LBP sales in Europe only during december. =)

and with time and people recommendations, LBP will reach 10 mln. LTD. :)

Top 20 Best PlayStation 3 Games (20-11)

Alex DS. from Link Cable Gaming writes: "Is the PlayStation 3 retro? This is a surprisingly hard question to answer as the system definitely has the age to be considered retro, having launched in 2006, over 15 years ago now. But with it being home to so many massive games, many of which still hold up today and in fact were released for the PlayStation 4 when that console was released, make the PS3 a retro console that doesn’t feel retro."

No ps3 is not retro. I dont even consider ps2 era retro. All imo.

shinoff2183515d ago

Typically, the term retro is given to items which are at least 20 years old (but not yet 40 years old).

Quick google search

badz149515d ago

No the PS3 is not yet a retro console. But if you're gonna put 1 game from a series in this list, then LBP2 should be there instead of the original, Motorstorm PR is also an overall better game than the 1st game and to put Tools of Destruction over A Crack in Time is a blasphemy when ACiT is the best game in the series.


An update on the LittleBigPlanet server and online services

Classic LittleBigPlanet servers are to be shut down permanently following hacks.
Sony’s drastic move comes after months of downtime for the older games.

darthv72747d ago

It was fun while it lasted. And some of the user created stuff was a blast to play with.

Snookies12747d ago

Whaaa-? That's crazy. Didn't expect it to be permanently shut down...

Teflon02747d ago

It's still up on PS4, they just shut down the PS3 end because hackers on PS3 can't be stopped and go on the game making announcements that can't be avoided without having to go back to all the old game codes and updating to remove the feature etc. It's one of those sad and garbage things where hackers ruined a good thing. I'm mostly sad about the Vita, I'm not sure if I have my music stages saved to my Vita, meaning they're gone forever if I didn't save them back to it. They were good too :(

Profchaos747d ago (Edited 747d ago )

Have to say I expected them to be permanently shut down problem would be in the underlying server architecture and possibly something like a depricated authentication protocol which has to be replaced that the PS3, PSP and vita can't support which is why they can't be securely restored on those consoles but the PS4 does support it.so lbp3 was restored on that.

Given the attackers were able to breach the server there was obviously a fear of lateral movement once inside their servers so I can't blame them for this and it makes sense despite the huge blow to the community millions of hours spent building that community.

Despite this blow I believe the millions of creations are going to be available via lbp3 and it's capability of backwards compatibility with user generated content so that's something to be thankful for still not a huge consolation to the many players who only own a older console but unfortunately that's the world we live in these games are old the older they get the more insecure the servers get which the company that make them.host them on and the more likely they need to be shut down.

Feel bad for the people who dedicated so much time into this game.

Battlestar23747d ago

Nice edit to your troll comment.

MadLad747d ago (Edited 747d ago )

I reread the article, and changed it, to be as honest on the topic as possible.
Let's be real, it was an easy reaction to have considering their actions of late.

He's been on a roll and it's comical 😁

RedDevils746d ago

This guy love stealth troll on playstation article as I see the pattern, but he doesn't want to admit that he's a MS fanboy.

Christopher747d ago

I am also sorry people enjoyed the online aspects of the game?

The man who earned a job by playing LittleBigPlanet
By GamesRadar Staff March 03, 2015
***“We've hired four people from the LBP community" reveals Alex Evans, co-founder of UK studio Media Molecule and creator of LittleBigPlanet. Including one lucky soul who dodged death to get a job on LBP2. Enter John Beech, or 'johnee' to his PSN friends. Two years ago John was a builder with absolutely no qualifications to speak of. But now? He's a full time designer at Media Molecule working on LittleBigPlanet 2, one of the most anticipated titles on PlayStation 3. This is his story.***

of course there is.. He was stealth trolling stating all LBP contributors wasted their time making levels for LBP... I pointed out that some of the contributors for LBP + Dreams have actually got JOBs because of the CREATIVE console. Just like Gran Turismo fans

Understandable they had to do this better to be safe then sorry. I just wish those right wing racists that hacked the servers and started posting homophobic slurs would get want they deserve a good few decades in prison.

Profchaos747d ago (Edited 747d ago )

That's the thing I guess if it wasn't them it would just be someone else and we would still be in this position regardless of their intent.

darthv72747d ago

What are you going on about?
