LittleBigPlanet potentially Sony's biggest game of 2008, demo unlikely

50°
357w ago - Sony's senior product manager Nick Robinson has said that "LittleBigPlanet is potentially our biggest Blu-ray release of 2008. We definitely see it as a triple-A Blu-ray release and will be a full price product."

He also confirmed plans for an open beta for the game before release that will focus on the creation and sharing aspects of the game. Robinson said that he is unsure if there will be a demo of the game.

To quote: "It's not like you will get to play the full game early," he said. "It will focus on the create and share side of things. The potential for people to break the game is amazing."

However, it looks unlikely that we'll see a demo of the game. "I'm not sure," Robinson said when asked. "How do you do a Little Big Planet demo? If we put up a level people will just finish it."

He added: "You can't sum it up in a press release. And in some respects you can't sum it up in trailers."

Motorstorm 2 to be Four Player Split Screen Island Getaway

50°
357w ago - Darren Waters of the BBC has confirmed that Motorstorm 2 will feature a four player split screen option, thus fixing one of the key missing features in the first game.

Waters goes on to mention the game is months away from completion, but the engine looks superb and the graphics as you'd expect were very impressive.

To quote: Here's what I was shown:

Motorstorm 2 is due out in time for Christmas and moves the action away from the desert locale of the original. Gamers will be able to race around a lush island environment, full of interactive vegetation.

The game will feature four-player split-screen action, righting one of the obvious failings of the first game.

The title is some months away from completion but the game's engine looked rock solid and the graphics were as impressive as one would expect from one of the best-looking racing franchises.
