Sony have commented on the recent speculation that Sony Benelux brand manager Folkert Langeveld has confirmed a sequel to LittleBigPlanet.
LittleBigPlanet is one of my favorite games on the Playstation 3. Can't wait to see what MM comes up with next.
There will definitely be a sequel, but not just yet I doubt. The first game is still alive with DLC!
Man! That's a game I need! My wife loves it!
GOTY edition isn't even out in Europe yet! Get that out, then start thinking about a sequel...
Sony hates Europe. SCEE is awful. Besides, even the GOTY-ediotion still doesn't have ALL the content on the disc. Sadly.
... and absolutely loved the game. However, the huge DLC 'milking' kinda put me off. They could have really used this game to market other games and movies and such, with free content and such, and thus creating a huge great positive hype and 'unclockables' and such. Like when you buy Motorstorm 2, you get a code for some free LBP costumes! Buy MGS4, and get a code for the LBP level-pack. Buy the watchman Blu-ray, and get some codes for the free Watchman LBP costumes. Also, developers could have been allowed to use this game as a tool to showcase THEIR talents with a LBP-level, and give their fans something they might like. So maybe Tecmo could have done a few Ninja Gaiden inspired levels, and Capcom could have done some nice levels as well. LittleBigPlanet should have been the absolute must-have and centerpiece of the PS3-experience, with just 'love' and 'sharing' in mind, throwing something nice and fresh and new and FREE to their gamers each and every week! Instead, they went for the greedy quick buck. Such wasted potential :( . Next time, I will just wait for the game to hit budget-price.
yeeeaaah cuz trying to make money for ur work is bad. do u work for free? and they already made tons of free costumes, that and while ur idea is goood it wud cost to much money for no reason. how many vouchers would go to waste if they were in each and every watchman blu-ray? making, someone has to make those codes, and someone has to make space for them, means someone is getting paid. sounds like a greedy gamer no? :) NOW wat i wud like to see is more lvl packs and less costumes, costumes are cooll, but i want more design tools, tho they did just do the water pack so i shudnt complain :)
1: Sony also still needs to sell BluRays, right!? So you might sell more Watchmen BR's when you throw in goodies like this. 2: Sony wants to sell as many copies as possible, right!? Now if your average gamer notices that all the LBP-promotions with cool free stuff and interesting levels etc etc are being thrown around, it might encourage more gamers to go out and buy LBP, plus also buy these games and BR's which has free content for their LBP. So IF a gamer is on the fence about buying Motorstorm 3 or not, extra content like this could probably convince them to get it. Same goes for movies. 3: With weekly free goodies and updates etc etc, you keep that community alive, which is what you want, so that way the game will be selling for years to come. Now, if it keeps selling, you can keep the price a bit higher than usual as well. If interest for a game fades after a few months, price drops down to 25 bucks pretty quickly, right!? Right! So if the interest keeps up, you will also be able to keep the price at a certain level, which is where you make your money. 4: it creates 'goodwill'. Capcom makes a couple of great free levels for LBP!? You will like Capcom a bit more, thus increasing the chance to 'support' that company when they have a good game out! It's a form of advertisement that WILL stick in players' minds, IF done right. Advertisement costs money and effort too, right!? So why not invest that money in this kind of 'advertisement', so people will actually enjoy and remember it! Give me a year at the head of SCEE, and I would turn their bad reputation around!
You'd still be waiting. Wish I had more free time for playing.
... Why? Here in Europe, LBP was probably available for 30 bucks or less within 3 months of it's release.
LBP cost almost nothing and to this day they can give u this game free and make money off DLC what is very good LBP2 will be amazing i hope to see a feature with the move where u draw ya objects and also i want 3d mode with first person view and able to hold object like guns bats Just think of a little big planet with custom baseball field yes get loads of glass and plate to smash up hehehe would be fun All object are real time also as in 4d yes cardboard would get wet and soggy in water glass when dropped would smash and wood that is set on fire and burn the whole level water can be placed anywhere ok maybe for LBP3 hehe lol
"LBP cost almost nothing" NOt true AT ALL
LBP 3D levels. Same concept, Different experience. LBP,RPG Builder? ModNation Racers beat MM to the punch as far as racing goes.
I wouldn't expect a LBP racing game though. You'll get Sackboy featured in ModNation Racers at some point I reckon...
...WILL BUY IT DAY 1!!! ;) (Hmm...no one slagging off a PS3 only game on this bit???...it makes a change!!!) ;-D
Oh oh botties. Another game to try put down :P Thats if this was true, why does the small paragraph before you read the article act as if it was confirmed, when contradicitng itself in the article? Even though MM has denied a LBP2 last year, I have no doubts it will be in the works after the success of LittleBigPlanet... Will be a day one buy for me.
That's good. As much as I love LBP, I really can't imagine a true sequel to this game. How do you make a sequel to a game that has no end?
i was thinking what if they made LBP2 in full 3D there would truly be no ending
...and not just across. Getting that "Ribbon" technology working would be great for LBP2.
@ico92 I believe LBP is going to be in 3D. There was a few articles about it. Just google it.
Dont we have enough of these games? I me look at all the Lego games that failed epically. Unless you're a 8-year-old I dont see how this game could amuse you.
No this game is awesome. If your creative this game will last you for years, unlike GoW3 which I platinumed in 4 days and now its over. It is pure quality and I don't think there is enough stuff like this out there. Remember you have to have something for everyone, not just games where you pretend to be a American soldier and shoot guys all day. Also this game isn't just for kids it suits every age my oldest friend who plays it is 65, but the average is 17-25.
