http://www.gametrail...age.php?id=4491


--4 players
--3D graphics on a 2D plane
--Brilliant camera pulls out when the players are spread apart
--run around and do stuff
--little puzzles you have to figure out with everyone (ala 4 Swords)
--It's like Pikmin, 4 Swords, Loco Roco, and any 2D platformer all in one.

Update: 7/17/07
new info: Thanks Dpatel and Dallow

Lots of new info!

Highlights:
- Enemies (sort of)
- GDC level = ~5MB of space on PS3 HDD (most of it was loaded from BD info)
- 3 sizes of levels: Largest = ~100 meters x 100 meters
- 4 players on one console, possibly 8 online (not finalized yet)
- Some sort of customizable music feature (somewhat revealed in this video, but sounds like they want to keep this under wraps until TGS)
- Working on custom soundtracks and trophy integration.
- Pre-loaded with levels to play and unlock items
- Beta by the end of this year, full release by early summer 2008

INFO:

LITTLEBIGPLANET™: EXPLORE, CREATE, SHARE.
Be Part of a Global PlayStation®3 Community Creating a Brand New Gaming World;
Genre-Defying, Astoundingly Imaginative –It’s More Than Just Gaming

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., March 7, 2007 -- Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios today revealed a glimpse of the LittleBigPlanet™ – the first creative gaming experience for PLAYSTATION┬«3 (PS3™) – at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco, California. Developed by Media Molecule, LittleBigPlanet is a new PS3 community-based game with a hugely innovative concept behind it. Players meet on a blue and green planet scattered with individual plots – and use their character’s amazing abilities to play, create and share what they build with other gamers throughout the world via PLAYSTATION┬«Network.
The LittleBigPlanet experience starts with players learning about their character’s powers to interact physically with the environment. There are obstacles to explore, bits and pieces to collect and puzzles to solve – requiring a combination of brains and collaborative teamwork. As players begin to explore, their creative skills will grow and they will be ready to start creating and modifying their surroundings – the first step to sharing them with the whole community.
Characters have the power to move anything in this glued and stitched-together 3D landscape; they have the power to design, shape and build both objects and entire locations for others to view and play. There’s no complicated level editor; all of these skills can be learned by simply playing the game. Creativity is part of the gameplay experience and playing is part of the creative experience. Players can make their world as open or as secretive to explore as they like. When it’s ready, they can invite anyone within the LittleBigPlanet community to come and explore their patch – or can go and explore everybody else’s.

“We were confident that PS3 would be the platform to lead the way in creative gaming, and LittleBigPlanet brings this concept to life spectacularly,” said Phil Harrison, President of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios. “By giving players the power to shape and share an entire virtual world via PLAYSTATION Network, we've created the space for PS3 owners to realize their creativity and craft their own unique gameplay experience.”

So, how does it work?

 Play the game, learn the skills and then find your own way to play. There isn’t a set solution to anything – you live LittleBigPlanet however you want to.


 Create your own content – customize your character and build your own locations. You have the power to rearrange anything in this unbelievably tactile landscape.

 Build, move, create, collaborate – then share content with friends or publicly by inviting the whole world to come and visit your own location on LittleBigPlanet.

Key features:

• There’s not just one way to play. Players craft their own individual experience
• Unlimited possibilities for user-created content – players can customize everything: their characters, the landscape around them and their own patch on LittleBigPlanet
• Players discover and win new skills and items to aid them on their creative journey
• Initial levels will be provided – endless others will be user-generated on a global scale. LittleBigPlanet will change every day as players contribute their own levels
• Online and offline multiplayer modes – play alone, work as a team or get competitive
• LittleBigPlanet global community for players to get involved with: includes player comments, rankings and easy communication with new and existing friends

A demo of LittleBigPlanet for PS3 is slated for the PLAYSTATION Network this fall. The full version will follow in early 2008.

Only on the PS3? Damn, I knew that the PS3 would eventually get a game that piqued my interest.

That looks unbelievable. Reminds me of Lost Vikings a little in the gameplay (a little). But, my God--those visuals. Sheesh.

I think from a graphical standpoint this is the first next-gen game that made me actually say wow.

Well, that does it. I'm officially a PS3 fan, as of this moment. Seriously, it looks amazingly fun. Sony is the new Nintendo.

I'm also really excited about the "YouTube-like" possibility of crafting your own levels and uploading them, and then tracking how many people use it, etc. Sure, people will upload a ton of crap as well, but being able to rate each one you play will help tremendously. I'm totally excited.

For the PS3 or "next-Gen" in general?

This game looks like it is going to require a headset, because I think'll be hard to work with others to figure out the puzzles without them.

Nice PR work there, Apossum. You should ask Sony for a job. :lol:

The game looks fantastic.

Can a PS3 owner tell me how the voice chat works?
Can I use any USB headset?

You can use the PS2's USB headset yes. Pretty sure you can use other types of USB headsets as well. Along with connecting most bluetooth wireless headsets like the ones people have for their cellphones.

If this game ends up with some sort of worthwhile single player, and actually has replayability, I would buy a PS3. Eventually. Sooner than never, which was my expected purchase date.

Next-gen in general. I'm not saying other games haven't looked good but they are mainly a jump in the vein of what we had with the PS2,XBOX, and CUBE. This looks completely fresh and the screenshots don't do it any justice.

Yes it will have single player and user created levels... Buy why don't you want to play with other people?

Screenshot looked extremely blah, video looks great.

I would play with other people, but I have never in my life played enough online multiplayer to justify the cost of a game. Actually, scratch that... Rainbow Six: Rogue Spear was played online for months back in the day in the dorms, but that was LAN play. Other than that, no.

That's my main qualm right now: will it have a good single-player mode? Why? Because what's the fun of playing through a co-op puzzler where everyone else has already completed the puzzles several times over?

User created levels = great idea... i just hope it doesn't turn into some microtransaction crap where you need to buy parts to use them.

The whole idea behind the game is allowing people to come up with their own levels. basically, you can make your own platformer.

and knowing that, this is easily one of my most anticipated games right now.
