LittleBigPlanet loses its exclusivity

LBP

Kotaku has received a photo of some new LBP promo material which has two very important things on it.

Firstly I think the marketing is a bit bland and while it will appeal to us who know about the game I think it will fail to get the casual gamer interested.

However the more important part is that the promo material has a different platform advertised on it.

That isn’t a PS3 logo now is it?

So is this an innocent mistake or is the PS3 about to lose a huge exclusive?

Honestly I hope it’s a mistake as I don’t think LBP will be as appealing on the PC but it is a bit of an odd one now…

  • I think it’s more likely that the packshot was made up, those kind of errors just don’t happen. especially when it comes to the legal lines these are normally checked across the board with everyone that’s involved.

    As for the packshot it’s self it could be a “fake” packshot as the final artwork hasn’t been approved/revealed we normally get blank packshots to fill in spaces so that retailers can let their consumers know when a product is coming in.

    but this is good news if it is coming to PC then I’ll be getting it for PC instead of PS3 yay! save R4700.00 woohoo! and then I’ll get an XBOX controller to play it with 😛

    Yeah, I’m not going to put my money on what games stays exclusive and what games don’t as anything can happen these days. That said, photoshot is a wonder thing. Even the trail version ain’t all that bad…

    I think this makes sense as there are trillions more people making mods for games on pc than on console.

    User gen content comes naturally to pc people, not console people.

    Isnt that an incorrect Playstation logo as well, hence possibly a fake?

    Please enlighten me: why is an Xbox 360 game on PC still exclusive, while a PS3 game on PC isn’t? 😛

    I think that this is probably a mistake, anyway. For onbe thing, that placeholder cover looks nothing like the real boxart: http://www.videogamesblogger.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/05/littlebigplanet-ps3-boxart-big.jpg

    interesting, oh well… shit happens

  • lol.. you make a good point.
    Always hear about these xbox360 exclusives that are quitly being released on PC too.

    LBP on PC, heck.. why did they not say so from the start !!? This game will work on PC, modding on PC is so much bigger. Although… this will prolly feel much better with gamepad.

    But on the other hand, that could be an error? This is big selling point for Sony, especially if they push the marketing on this game and that its PS3 exclusive.

    has this been confirmed or are we doing the internet thing again?

  • LazySAGamer

    doing the Internet thing ;),

    I think it’s bull to be honest but you never know

  • The game’s being published by Sony. It wasd a screw up on the poster. It’s an exclusive. Stop jumping to conclusions

    Ernie’s last blog post..ReelDesign Is Open for Business

  • jak

    what a waste of a flipping post. You know it will never come out on PC 👿

  • LazySAGamer

    Okay it’s a day later and I thought I would check up on this again..

    Strangely enough the story has not been denied yet…
    The biggest thing people are pointing to is that ‘old’ Orange Sony label.. if you go to http://www.littlebigplanet.com you will see the same logo there so that isn’t proof of anything.

    Is this another exclusive like Final Fantasy?

  • ya.. who knows what will stay exclusive these days. Personally I don’t really care if it is released on PC/ I’ll still get the PS3 version. Just think it will be much more fun and relaxing on the couch in front of my big widescreen TV than sitting front of a puter, and then there’s the friends (up to 4 right?) that can join in on the PS3 which is one of the game’s bigger attractions I think.
