I'm going out on a limb here... but this game IMO, will be a system mover for PS3... more so than MSG or Killzone2... that crowd, has either gotten a PS3 already or own an Xbox 360. LBP, will create its own niche audience for the system. If this game is as good as it looks, then GTA IV has a competitor for GOTY... there I said it.

GTA IV, as good as it is, still was really disappointing for many people.

This really should have been on Wii. Not that the wii has the power to actually run a game like this, but LBP and Spore are games that seem to be tailor-made for the audience that the Wii has managed to capture.

On the other hand, I don't know what the skill level involved with this game is, so maybe not.

excessive depth of field, reminds me of blue dragon's.

I'm not sure if this game is a showcase of power, it's more a showcase of creativity. Lowering the resolution and some tricks here and there, I think it could run in a Wii with not many problems.

Now GOTY Candidate? Those are really big arse words.

As fun as this game is, this is no more a system seller than VP. Niche audience != system seller. And if GTA4 can't give the ps3/360 more sales, nothing can so we might as well drop the term "system seller".

The only thing that sells a system these days seems to be a barrage of mac style commercials.

To people that expected it to be something completely different than it would be.

I agree that if LBP lives up to everything they've stated, it will be contender for GOTY, it's a completely different game. Lots of 360 / PS3 games could be possible on Wii, but you'd not only have to savage the graphics, but change / remove many gameplay elements as well. "Power" includes RAM, internal storage, and processing for stuff like AI and physics, as well as graphics.

Moving systems is completely dependent on marketing, I've never seen a connection between game quality and selling hardware.

Aaaaaa, how I wish this was on the 360. :(

Such a charm to it.

On a side-note, I sure hope that Spore comes to the 360 ASAP.

This isn't going to be a full-price game, is it?

While a brilliant game it wouldn't be my GOTY. It's a showpiece of what can be done, but nowhere near as much entertained me as the previous GTAs, despite all the faults they had and the inferior gameplay. Sometimes I felt like I'm playing Sims or some second life game (imo too much emphasis on interaction with the world, the main missions and the storry suffered from it).

Now I don't doubt that this will be GOTY for most magazines out there because all of the hype it received and all the sales it seems to be an easy pick. No magazine will risk their "good name" and be brave enough to declare another less anticipated game GOTY, like LBP.

It's really looking nice and cute and the gameplay itself seems very entertaining. But this is by no means a systemseller because it lacks the marketing. Someone who's considering buying a PS 3 will first look at the most advertized and established IPs like GT5 (which is a serious systemseller) or FF VIII.

My personal GOTYs are still to come later this year...

This won't get GOTY because there won't be enough depth and story... rather there will be no story.

This is basically another Gary's Mod type game (to me) on the PS3
PS3 doesn't have the right audience for this type of game... my guess is, low sales and possibly multi platform later if not just PC as well

PC is a lot better suited for this type of game over any console IMO

GOTY, perhaps not, but definitely THE most innovative game of the year (decade).

The most innovative game of the decade and definitely so as you put it?

It looks fun and all, but it also looks like a better-looking version of a free flash game or something. I definitely don't get the hype around this game.

Cant believe there is hype over such a game, either way it does look quite fun.

These guys stole Peter Moleyneux`s idea from `The Room`. Search it up. Well, its to be expected, these guys used to be apart of Lionhead.

So did the guys who made H-L 2 Portal, so what? Molyneux didn't have the guts to release "The Room" (we gamers don't have anything from superb ideas, which never are integrated into games), while the LBP creators managed to make their approach to the creating side so sophicticated, but at the same time geniusly easily accessible and plain "fun", that it's a game by itself (and that's not where LBP stops). Not an innovative basic concept (there are thousends of other level creating tools on the market), but innovative and simply brilliant tools (and art) made this possible.

and I don't get the hype over Shooter XYZ 3,4,5 , whatever

Keep dreaming, LittleBigPlanet is Sony's first-party title so it is exclusive to the PS3. Plus it's mainly developed exclusively with the PS3 technology.
Commented on 2008-05-20 13:42:33
I'm a bit confused. Some are saying it's just a PSN release, whilst others are saying it's a full priced game.

Well, which is it?

Hahaha. Good one. Way to...prove a point..?? :/

I have no doubt that people will have fun with this game and some will come up with truly interesting ways of playing it, but it still seems like a glorified flash game. I personally don't enjoy just dicking around, and that's probably all I would do. And like I said, I know other people will do some pretty great things with the game and have fun doing it, but I don't see this game coming close to being GOTY.

This game will never touch Garry's Mod.

Yeah what I was saying was more, if they want the franchise to make decent money more than anything

The way the character models are made, move and react reminds me a lot of Moleyneux's fighting mod that was derived from Fable. I didn't know they came from the same company

I think it looks very promising... devs please go crazy :)
Commented on 2008-05-21 07:17:00
It still looks fabulous, but still don't know what it is about. I doubt people will buy this game (except the fanatics) if the marketing doesn't get its head out its poopoo-hole and really start marketing this. And being the most innovative game of the decade, well I doubt it, but lets just wait and see.

I mean, it looks promising, but I dare to say that it won't be GOTY or "system-seller" if people don't know what it's about. I'd throw it on the same pile with pop: sands of time...
