LittleBigPlanet 2 Already In Development?

Even though LittleBigPlanet is just now finding its way into the hands of rabid gamers like Anthony, Sackboy and his army of cuteness isn’t quite finished just yet. It’s being reported that Media Molecule is already hard at work on the sequel.

I guess Sony has really latched onto this game, which makes sense, given they don’t have much of a face for their franchise this gen as of yet. While I am curious to play the game, admittedly I wondered if it would be any fun past week one or two, once I had made my phallic level and moved on. However, I’m hearing lots of great things, and the game is tempting like a tractor beam in its pull.

What about you guys? Who’s gotten to play it yet?

  1. It’s a lot of fun. You know when you would play Mario when you were younger and trying to get past certain parts, and your hands sweat and you get past it and let out a breath you didn’t know you held in?

    It’s like that.

    As for the creator, I know how each little tool works, but can I make anything with it yet? No. But I have not really tried, I am going to beat the game first and then mess around. The story is too fun to stop right now.

    I have not enjoyed a platformer so much since Mario 64 or Super Mario World.

    Not as good as those, but best since then.

  2. Why must they always make sequels?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? Don’t they know sequels ruin a franchise!? (Usually.) Anyway, instead of releasing a completely separate CD, they should just have updates for new tools and such.

  3. I think sequels can improve on their originals.

    Resident Evil got better.

    Sonic got better.

    Halo…up to you.

    Fable got better

    Final Fantasy had better and worse sequels.


    Ratchet and Clank.

  4. Meh. I won’t pretend to know a lot about this game (Don’t have a PS3), but I know that Garry’s Mod for HL2, which is similar, can entertain some people for years without getting old. For me, it got old after a week, but I guess its a creativity thing. If you can think of stuff to do, it shouldn’t ever get old.

    That said, knowing what little I do about LittleBigPlanet, I can’t think of anything they can do in a sequel that they didn’t do in the first game.

  5. Uhm..I won’t pretend like I know a lot about this game either. And I also won’t pretend like I’m psyched to know a lot either. I think this game will be fun for a week. For a month. For maybe half a year even, but I think the concept of giving people free reign to create things is only fun if people keep creating. I have a feeling this game will have some hardcore fan boys, and the gaming world will generally praise it, but I doubt that after the first half a year of the game, non-hardcore fans will still play the game seriously. For some reason, I’m getting a strong feeling like this game is going to be like a MySpace fad for the gaming world. Not to be pesimistic..but it just seems that way. Besides, gamers play the game for a story/gameplay. Movie watchers watch a movie for the story. If you gave all the people in the movie theater the tools to make a movie instead of the actual movie it self, I doubt even a fourth of the people going to see movies would even so much as re-think never coming back. You’ve got your creators, and then you’ve got the people who enjoy the creations. When you try to make them both the same may be fun for a while..but I doubt it will last insanely long for the mainstream public.

  6. I really don’t think this should be a franchise Sony should be pinning to itself as its main game. I actually think it would be in Sony’s interests to not pick one specific game, but to try to get a few good games out, and then wrap themselves around the group and say “look, we host great games” or something. I mean, pinning yourself to one game isn’t a bad idea, as long as that game is fully fleshed out with it’s own story and memorable characters. Unless Sony is going for the “We the people” route of MMO’s and stuff, which I really doubt..but it wouldn’t be bad if they did, I don’t think LBP is the best choice for a game to stick to as a poster boy for the system.
