The map creator they showed for this during the conference was pretty cool.

I really would like to know why Sony continues to force lackluster franchises onto gamers. Yes, it hurt them badly when GTA, Devil May Cry, Metal Gear Solid and others went multiplatform. But how many games does it take them to realize that not enough people buy the Modnation Racers, Littlebigplanets, Killzones, Motorstorms, even the Uncharteds, the Resistances and the Infamous'. Yes, they are all pretty good games. But they all struggle to sell even 2 million copies, they are no system sellers.

So why don't they just focus on the franchises that are? Gran Turismo, God of War, Wipeout.

Wow.

We should just put you in charge and watch the world of creativity and innovation slowly fucking die.

Jesus Christ mate, you win the most fucked up opinions of the year award and really hope there is no one out there who thinks the same way.

Should have added IMO, because I doubt anybody, not even your own mom would agree with this opinion.

Personally I play games, I don't play sales so I couldn't care less how much the games sell. LPB and this game encourage players to demonstrate a speck of their own creativity, which is more than can be said of most games.

Uncharted on the other hand, is an incredible franchise. The best Sony has at the moment. It also happens to sell, if thats your thing.

Maybe if Sony release Sales Manage 2012, you might cut them a little slack, eh?

hahah

this and LBP seemed to fit the vita so well, the mechanics and creation just made sense. i just hope the vita version of modenation loads a bit faster then it does on the PS3, cos atm it's about as slow as it gets as far as load times. which is a shame, becasue the game is second to only crash team racing in terms of kart racers imo.

LBP is and was amazing , as is Uncharted. Resistance and Motorstorm are considered lacklustre by many, but still, you can't bundle them all together in a rant about Modnation Racers. Which was in my opinion a souless poor game with awful online trying to cash in on LBP.
However, the E3 presentation for it on Vita made complete sense and i'd possibly be open to giving it a second chance in that format.

edit: With regards to Killzone and infamous i find their gritty depressing style just isn't for me, yet i know they sell huge numbers. I recognise that, others enjoy them, so i don't know why somebody would make a post grouping all exclusives together and saying they are forced upon us.
If you want an example of games being forced upon us see Microsofts Kinect conference. Yuk :(

What an idiot. Not even going to reply how many of those games listed have sold over 2m copies or how the competition lacks that sort of quality exclusive line-up.
