55w ago - Sony Producer Kyle Zundel of San Diego Studios has made available a glimpse of LittleBigPlanet Karting for PS3 multiplayer fans, which will be featured at E3 2012 next week.
To quote: With E3 less than a week away, I wanted to take this opportunity to provide a quick update on what you'll be seeing at the show in Los Angeles.
We'll be unveiling our multiplayer mode, which supports one to four players offline and one to eight players online, and I'm sure you'll be reading plenty of hands-on reports from the press during E3 week. I can tell you that it's addictively fun - you won't want to put the controller down!
We'll also be showing off more of the single-player campaign that users will be able to explore, as well as some of the additional non-racing experiences that are unique to LBP Karting, so get ready!
Secondly, I wanted to quickly thank our friends in the press who have spoken highly of Sackboy's newest karting adventure. As IGN put it..."LittleBigPlanet Karting is already an incredibly promising step up and a great new direction for the LittleBigPlanet franchise."
Lastly, I wanted to pass along a quick reminder about our pre-order bonus offer.
59w ago - UFG Game Designer William Ho has posted up a video today showcasing Sackboy behind the wheel in LittleBigPlanet Karting below.
To quote: The easiest part of showing off LittleBigPlanet Karting is just getting to play it outside of United Front Games.
We don't make fun, fresh, addictive games just for ourselves. We make them for you, your friends, your brothers, your sisters, Little Timmy and even for Crazy Uncle Larry.
So it's incredibly important for us to get the game in the hands of real people - real gamers - like we did in Los Angeles last week.
Thanks to everyone who came from the four corners of globe to get hands-on time with LittleBigPlanet Karting. Merci, France! Gracias, Mexico and Spain! Spasibo, Russia! Cheers, Australia! No worries, Canada!
It was great to see smiles for every drift and every jump, every big air swing with the Grappling Hook and every on-the-spot slapfight. Our new Battle Mode was definitely a hit.
"Garden Grip", a race course that lovingly pays homage to the very first LBP level, opened everyone's eyes to how beautiful Craftworld can be in full 3-D. And "Future Perfect," a race course that captures the joy...
61w ago - Sony LBP Community Coordinator Steven Isbell has announced today news of LittleBigPlanet 2 PS3 update 1.12 arriving this week, with details on the new features for PlayStation 3 fan below!
To quote: Update 1.12 for LittleBigPlanet 2 will be out this week, and it will introduce a few nifty features to the game.
The Dive-In feature has now been moved to the top of the Community menu, and has been vastly rewired and improved to help players easily find some new Sackfolk to play with during their adventures!
To help encourage creativity, we have removed the Boos from the Level Rating System. You can still Yay a level to say that you really liked it, but we found that the Boo ratings were disheartening at best, and could be used to cause grief amongst the community.
If you happen to find something you don't like because it's rude or mean or just plain offensive, then hit the Select Button and use the Good Grief System to report it to our moderation team.
Comments & Reviews
If you have just played a level and wish to provide the creator with some helpful feedback, then you can still use the level's comments section or perhaps leave a nice and informative review for the entire community...
65w ago - Media Molecule Studio Director Siobhan Reddy has announced today alongside a video trailer that LittleBigPlanet Karting is coming to the PS3 entertainment system!
To quote: Earlier this year, we cut some cake and popped some champagne to celebrate Media Molecule's sixth birthday!
We've had an awesome time during the last six years, seeing how the experiment we started here in Guildford has grown, giving rise to a thriving LittleBigPlanet community. This year will be no different, filled with DLC, plus new experiments from the LBP family for you to play with.
You already know about the fantastic LBP work that Tarsier Studios and Double Eleven Studios are doing on LittleBigPlanet for PS Vita, and now we are delighted to announce today a new LBP collaboration with the hugely talented team at United Front Games who will be leading a new project called LittleBigPlanet Karting!
We've all seen that UFG has a wealth of racing experience and they're also intimately familiar with LBP's cornerstones of "Play, Create, Share." With LBP's powerful and diverse toolset in their capable hands, LittleBigPlanet Karting is sure to be an adventure that both LBP fans and kart-racing fans alike will enjoy!
We are eager to see what you think of this union and especially excited...
