Analyst: LittleBigPlanet to sell a lot of PS3 hardware

Analyst Michael Pachter believes Sony's LittleBigPlanet will do well to move PS3 hardware upon the game's release early next year.

"I can't say enough positive things about Little Big Planet," Pachter told Gamasutra. "There were looks of delight on the faces of the people playing it and people watching it in Tokyo. It looks like a genre-defining game [with] the potential to move consoles."

I will be one to get it asap, for sure.

nasim5711d ago

I agree LBP would be a monstrous hit worldwide

Gondee5711d ago

I hope sonys not counting on it. Beause thell come out and say they expect to sell 5 million more ps3's. If they hope to make this in to a system seller they better advertise. I dont even know what this game is. Just a name. There gona need a halo3 sized marketing campain.

Are you serious?

You're not serious, are you?

mighty_douche5711d ago

they just come out with either complete guess' just to get some attention. OR they just tell us what we already know, as is the case.

screw analysts, are they really needed?

SlippyMadFrog5710d ago

You already know that LBP is going to be a system seller? Just like you knew that Lair and Heavenly Sword would be, right?

tplarkin75711d ago

It appeals to kids. I also thought LBP was not a full-fledged game? Isn't more of a mini-game?

I disagree. I am 25 and think this will be fun as hell. As do most of my friends. Just cause something is cartoony doesn't mean its "Kids only" Try reading an adult comic(i.e. Anything by Frank Miller or Neil Gaiman) or watching an anime or even movies that are kind of cartoony(Family guy, Final Fantasy, Starwars!!!1!) They are for everyone who thinks its cute. Why do college girls have teddy bears all over their rooms?

Look I think basically its artistic. Creativity meets online gameplay meets something that is appealing to eveyone visually. Would you like it if they had made the game with body parts and gore? This game is made this way so it can appeal to a mass market. All of japan will like it and its a game that Mom and daughter can play together and even enjoy it... Along with someone like me. Its good stuff and made for everyone. Just cause something is cartoony (Team Fortress, Halo) doesn't mean its for kids.

Edit: I hate when people disagree and never say why... Damn people.

I'm more excited for this than I am home. If I'm going to chat with PSN friends I'd rather do it building some random contraption in LBP, than do it standing around in Home. (Although Homes pool tables 'n' such should provide some entertainment.)

Most people play with guns as kids so its only natural for adults to get something that requires a bit more creativity and imagination.

Good point bro. Bubble+ heading your way.

tplarkin75710d ago

I'm just saying that it's a kiddish mini-game that won't sell systems. Sure, adults that own a PS3 will buy it.

It's cute rag dolls frolicking about in a 2D side-scrolling world. That music is good for about 2 minutes, and then I want to shoot myself. I hope they have other tunes.

this game looked cool but there didn't seem to be an enemies or plot or ability for people to script for their own maps.. or am I wrong and has that stuff been added?

DrPirate5711d ago

Enemies, Bosses, Triggers, Map Scripts, it's all there...

Lightning Mr Bubbles5711d ago

Not to my personal taste at all. But then again, I think the Wii crap also. So certainly this can be a huge hit with other people.

DrPirate5711d ago (Edited 5711d ago )

Will you say the game sucks when you see Mario Bros levels on there? A Halo Side-Scroller? Limitless possibilities and when people get creative, I'll use Garry's Mod, Forge, and Starcraft's Use Map Settings games as proof to show people are geniuses and create the best games.

I expect the community to be making some sick maps for this game in due time.
Lightning: You are more then entitlted to your own taste in gaming! Just try not to sound like a hater stating that the game has no value, but you fixed that in your reply anyways, so it's all good

Lightning Mr Bubbles5711d ago

no doubt. Like I said, the game just doesn't interest me. But that doesn't mean it's not a huge hit.

It's just not my taste at all. That's all I'm saying.
