LittleBigPlanet has every one of us excited. And no doubt many of you as well. But what about the average punter, who doesn't even own a PS3? Sony reckon it'll get them excited too, and so damn excited they'll want to rush out and buy the console just to play the game. Associate Producer Eric Fong:

It's going to be a hardware seller. Not only do you have the platforming experience that a lot of other games will have, you have this creativity that really is exclusive to LittleBigPlanet.

Hmm. Can't help but wonder whether the console's still a liiiitle bit too expensive for a game as "accessible" as LBP to really shift hardware. Maybe in a year or so! No reason it can't be a slow-burning system seller, like that other Sony game, SingStar. LittleBigPlanet will be "hardware seller" claims Sony [GI.biz]

DISCUSSION

Na, really this won't be a system seller, outside gaming sites I haven't seen much in the way of marketing for this game. And this is not "casual" in any way, it may look like one for some people because its not your average "hardcore" uber graphics-space marine-bloom filled FPS but after watching some gameplay this game makes you think quite a bit more than the usual "casual" game (god dammit I hope someday we forget about this labeling this gen created....).

That does not mean this is bad, I'm waiting for this, I suck at user created content but still I might try to do something with it. I just hope that Killzone and Kratos sackboys are available at least 2 months after the game. Or that I have an option at a Snake sackboy...*drools*
