LittleBigPlanet stuns the GDC

LittleBigPlanet stuns the GDC

I have to admit I'm one of these jaded gamers who rarely fall in love with a game at first sight, but LittleBigPlanet is one exception. If after watching this video you do not have a big smile on your face, then you have no soul ;)
Update: Added a HQ 60 fps version of the video, and 2 images.
Update2: The game runs at 30 fps, so a 60 fps video did add anything except being much more CPU hungry, so I've reencoded it to 30 fps. Enjoy.

Looks great, really loving the way it looks. Does it remind anyone else of Rag Doll Kung Fu or is it just me?

Absolutely amazing!!! SONY is Back! oh thank god now let the competition start!!!

This is looking very impressive. I agree the war is back on. Hurray for competition. Rare has their work cut out for them on 360. Hopefully their next platformer will look this good.

And the PS3 Home, very impressive too, but unless they really have been working on this for over 2 years, I don't expect to see this till 2008. They say 2007, but I skeptical.

It's in beta already, and from what we saw, it looks near done.

Seriously, this is the first time I've been impressed by the PS3, brilliant stuff. If Sony keeps this up, a PS3 will be mine sooner rather than later.

i heard the entire concept behind this game and i dont see whats so "stunning" about it, a little too cutesy for me, nice physics tho, im much more interested in Home.

Dammit, these things transform me into a pre-teen girl every time.

Yeh, was confusing Home with LBP. :(
Commented on 2007-03-08 00:02:18
This is stunning stuff. Rag Doll Kung Fu had the look but not the fun, I think they've sorted that out with LBP!
Commented on 2007-03-08 00:32:31
Now that's more like it.
Well done!
Commented on 2007-03-08 00:44:17
I was floored by this. Looks amazing and looks it looks fun. It really makes you work together as a team. I have not seen a game that makes you work as a team as good as this game. This is a Kill app! No doubt about it!

Having seen many good ps3 game lately makes me want to buy one real soon.
The new video of heavenly sword, Little Big Planet, and Warhawk. I cant wait untill new videos of other games come out.
Commented on 2007-03-08 01:03:37
WHOAH! now THAT looks next gen!
Commented on 2007-03-08 02:03:00
By the way, is this in any way related/connected to Little Big Adventure? I know it's far fetched, but that game is too old and made by people I didn't know in a time when I didn't care.. so I have no idea if that's a remote possibility.

No, it isn't.
Commented on 2007-03-08 02:14:48
Nope, not by a longshot. :D

Did some research. Adeline Software - french company - made LBA and was later acquired by Sega under the name "No Cliché". I remember that company actually. I'm pretty sure they made Toy Commander for Dreamcast.

Ho well, no relation at all. Carry on. :D
Commented on 2007-03-08 02:21:27

About the game


What's up?
  • droezelke
    droezelke WD2 is more fun than WD1, but it's so easy. Also, the main quests are 'meh'. WD1 had a more focussed story. The story in WD2 is uninspired. (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Sdarts: Don't forget that people are getting sick of CoD, they didn't trust WD anymore after the first. Dishonored 2 got too little PR according to me. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker quests, which is a goddamn shame, a goddamn shame. For sure they could have come up with some meaningful side quests with at least a story. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Definitely enjoying FFXV more but I am solely talking about the story missions, some good diversity there. I also really like the Chocobos. Just such a shame that the side quests truly are all fetch (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (4 Hours ago)
