Free-to-play games are all the rage these days, and now one of Sony’s most popular franchises is getting in on the action. That’s right; LittleBigPlanet Hub is coming to PS3 as a free-to-play title later this year.
LittleBigPlanet is receiving yet another costume pack, but this time it’s featuring our favourite space crew from Mass Effect. It’s nice to see the LBP titles being strongly supported still and we hope these costumes will be compatible with any inevitable LBP games on the PS4, or future games on the Vita.
Since its international launch almost exactly a year ago, the PlayStation Vita has presented players with a huge amount of entertaining and innovate gaming experiences. Naysayers may complain that the Vita ‘has no games’, but the following nominees beg to differ.
This year’s nominations for BEST PS VITA GAME are…
Sony Computer Entertainment has announced that PlayStation 3 sales in the United Kingdom have reached 5 million. The news comes two weeks after the launch of the 500GB Super Slim model, which, along with the 12GB model launching tomorrow, will surely bolster sales even further in the run up to Christmas.
Throughout Gamescom week our inbox gets barraged by publishers pushing trailers. We can’t complain. We love them, and we know you do too.
That’s why we decided to collect our favourites and put them together in an article. It turned out we couldn’t narrow them down to 10, so we thought we might as well give you 37.
With the Wii U’s tablet controller and the Xbox 360’s SmartGlass technology, it looks like dual-screen gaming is the future for home consoles. Now Sony has hit back with an impressive demo of its own, in which the Vita is used as a controller to play LittleBigPlanet 2 on PS3.
Sony have announced that LittleBigPlanet Karting, developed by United Front Games, will be racing on to store shelves (you can imagine them if you buy online) later this Winter.
Pre-order bonuses and a special edition have also been revealed but are they enough to make you take the plunge on day one? I think the VP of Everything Awesome will pull you in with his brilliant ways.
LittleBigPlanet has become quite the pinnacle franchise for Sony consoles and handhelds, replacing many of the brand’s past mascots with Sackboy and Sackgirl. The PlayStation Vita has yet to receive a tasty piece of the LittleBigPlanet pie. That is all about to change, come 25 September, when Vita gets its own chance to Play, Create, and Share.
Sony has announced the pre-order bonuses for LittleBigPlanet Vita over on the PlayStation Blog. Depending on where you pre-order from, you’ll be treated to either a BioShock and Knights of Old costume pack.
Consider the bonuses a big thank you to those who have supported it since its reveal back at E3 2011 – or a cunning sales trick to get you in early. Who cares? It’s Big Daddy!
PS Vita was tragically undersold by Sony during their E3 keynote speech. An early leak spoiled the Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation announcement, so our only “surprise” came when we got a title for an already announced Call of Duty game. Oh, we got a logo too.
We’ve scanned the list of confirmed upcoming games. Here are some of the most noteworthy
Unless you haven’t been on the internet for a month, you’ll know that E3 starts in just a few days’ time, so we no doubt have dozens of game reveals to look forward to over the next week or so. Before that though, PS3 Attitude thought we’d take a look at some of the games that have already been announced, and, more specifically, what they need to prove at the expo.
At this year’s E3, 46,800 industry professionals, journalists, retailers and analysts arrived in LA to experience the videogame industry’s biggest event of the year, and with over 200 exhibitors promoting their latest games and hardware, this year was arguably the biggest ever.
We cannot offer you a complete guide to E3 2011 (that would require writing a book), but we can give you this neat list featuring 10 thing that caught our attention during this year’s show. We had great games and impressive hardware on show and a lot of stuff happening in-between. Enjoy.
The games industry is full of interesting people with fascinating stories, right? We hear it so often that it becomes a cliché, but here we have a story that demands attention. It is the story of John Beech, a level designer on Media Molecule’s LittleBigPlanet 2, whose path into the industry was a little different from most.
We are now in the year of the rabbit; that means, if you’re into astrology this is going to be an exciting year for you and your PlayStation 3, what with rabbits being known for their artistic talents and good taste. However, those who consider astrology to be a lot of superstitious nonsense may require further persuasion.
We advise unbelievers to look at the games released in January – LittleBigPlanet 2, Dead Space 2 and Mass Effect 2 – because these alone point to a good year. Each one is a blockbuster title and likely to be in contention when the awards are being handed out. What’s more, this selection is diverse and offers something for almost everyone. There are worse ways to start a year, that’s for sure.
LittleBigPlanet took user-generated content to a whole new level, giving players seemingly endless possibilities with an easy to use creation mode fueled by their own imagination. With new content popping up daily, is a sequel really necessary? Media Molecule thought so.
LittleBigPlanet 2 includes an all new Sackboy adventure and expands upon the original “Play, Create, Share” ideology by allowing players to create not just platformers but also shooters, racers, arcade games, and practically any other genre you can imagine.
Can LittleBigPlanet 2 out create its predecessor, or is much of the same old stuff we’ve seen before?
Well then, dear PS3 lovers… it will soon be the Year of the Rabbit, the happiest of all the Chinese zodiac signs.
In Chinese astrology the Rabbit is considered to be happy and popular. Rabbits are known for their artistic talent and good taste. You might say there are certain attributes of the Rabbit that foretell of a great year for Sony’s flagship console.
So, is that the case? Or will 2011 be more a ‘dog of a year’ than a metaphorical ‘lucky rabbit’s foot’?
All the time developers are finding new ways to push the boundaries of their platform so they can create more impressive graphics and gaming moments. The public wants it – they cannot wait to see the flame, fire and sand effects in Uncharted 3. Nevertheless, despite this constant anticipation for the next best thing, there has always been a place for retro gaming.
It could be because retro games are easy to grasp: the concepts are often so pure your granny could learn them. Or maybe it is because they do not demands hours of your time, unlike the majority of modern games. Either way, retro gaming is soon to find a new home – in LittleBigPlanet 2.
Every year the crack staff over at Guinness World Records updates the world on the esteemed accomplishments of humanity, and perhaps this will be the year that the creepy guy with long fingernails is surpassed by an equally creepy guy or gal with slightly longer fingernails.
The powers that be have also recently seen fit to expand their gaze to incorporate the feats of gamers. The ‘Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition’ chronicles everything from “best selling racing game” to “longest videogame marathon” (Mario Kart Wii and 50 hours of Red Dead Redemption respectively, in case you were wondering).
What records do SCEA and Guinness have in mind for LittleBigPlanet 2?
Just as we’ve stated a million times before, we’re huge LittleBigPlanet fans here at PS3 Attitude. Even the smallest news out of the Media Molecule camp is usually enough to send us prancing around the office. Then there’s announcements like the one we got today, when they roll out so much awesomeness all at once that it makes our heads explode… as we’re prancing.
