Default Game OverThinker on Little Big Planet and the state of gaming

"HOMELESS." 'Little Big Planet' was supposed to be the masterpiece that turned things around for the PS3... turns out they only got the masterpiece part right. Was this an unfortunate fluke, or a symptom of something bigger and more troubling?

interesting stuff from this guy. I kind of agree with his logic on what has happened to gaming this console generation.

I use my PS3 for Movies and Sports games.

I play Action and RPG games on my PC.

I think the biggest thing that's hurting the PS3 is logic. As a PS3 owner, I am still quite pissed off at how all the "exclusive" titles are losing that label on the PS3. A year ago I was thinking of buying a PS3 or a 360. Being a longtime Tekken and Final Fantasy fan, I chose the PS3. A year down the line none of these two games has come out (i won't count Tekken DR) and the latest I've heard is both of them are coming out of the 360 as well. Well that's a load of crap now. The only exclusive worthwhile from the PS3 is MGS4, which was really good, and LBP, which is quite good too. But that doesn't justify paying a lot more cash than just getting the 360.

Also, the 360's online community is a lot more better than PS3. NBA 2k9 has the Outsiders and Rashidi making rosters for the 360.

As the Game Overthinker put it, LBP is kinda out of place from the PS3 community. The PS3 is to most powerful machine out there, and true enough, LBP makes good use of that power, but the target market of LBP just can't afford the PS3.

Where are my favorite PS franchises right now? It's been 2 years since the PS3 launch.

1. Gran Turismo
2. Tekken
3. Final Fantasy
4. ICO / Shadow of the Collosus
5. Jak and Daxter

It's true that some of the major Playstation brand exclusives are now multiplat and it's sad to see. But if you look at the bigger picture the playstation right now is creating many exciting new franchises, with Little Big Planet, Resistance, Uncharted, M.A.G + many more
and of course the crazily hyped Killzone 2 which I think comes out next month, Final Fantasy XIII VERSUS, God of War 3 +many many more franchises of the past.
The only thing stopping the ps3 from advancing anywhere right now is the price and their non-existent marketing

The online community is growing by the day, I heard playstation home just came out and I saw some videos of it, it seems really promising.

Are you kidding? Sony's new marketing for PS3 is the best it's been in a LONG time. Maybe you are missing the commercials, I dunno.

I agree on the multi-platform deals though, it sucks that I cant play some games because they are on xbox360. I guess I'll have to make a XBLA game for the company so I can get a 360 as a tax write-off hehe
