Re: Game OverThinker on Little Big Planet and the state of gaming
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
3. Final Fantasy
4. ICO / Shadow of the Collosus
5. Jak and Daxter
