LittleBigPlanet Demo Not Coming This Year 62

The MTV Multiplayer site has the saddening news that the LittleBigPlanet demo, probably one of the most-anticipated PlayStation offerings for this year, has slipped to 2008. Not terribly surprising given the time of the year. "'I can officially confirm that there won't be a demo this year,' Ron Eagle, senior manager of PR for Sony Computer Entertainment America told me. But he did say he's played 30 of the games 50 planned developer-made levels and that it's a lot of fun. He seemed genuinely pleased about his time with the game, but his company won't be showing more 'LBP' at least until next month. Eagle could only add that the full game is set for a 2008 release. And with that, the video game release calendar for 2007 is complete. No more delays. No more surprises. Right?"

    Though disappointed there's far too much other good stuff I haven't even started on this year. My PS3 copy of the Darkness still has its wrapper on for some reason, Ninja Gaiden goes 3/4 unfinished though it is excellent and Mario Galaxy is taking up a lot of my time at the moment, and thats onlyt when Table Tennis isn't. Must get round to finishing Zelda, and I like the odd Motorstorm race online too. So much quality, so little time - and I've asked for the Orange box for xmas as well...

    Doesn't the PS3 have the least number of games rated at 90% or above on gamerankings or metacritic?

    And every one of those few games is a multiplatform title. That's got to sting.

    But hey, Metal Gear Solid and Final Fantasy XIII are going to save the PS3 just like Mario, Zelda, and Metroid saved the Gamecube (which had almost exactly the same sales as the PS3).

    Any site that can give Metriod Prime 3 a 90%+ can't be trusted for reliable numbers. Especially when Ratchet and Clank ToD only gets an 88%. One of those games is far superior to the other, and it's *not* Metroid.

    Get orange box and CS and you'll never look back.

    Can't speak for OP, but... I don't like FPS games that much, at least not enough for them to be enough to ditch the console. Some people like other game types. Also, I'm one of the types of people who isn't big on multiplayer -- generally, I only play a multiplayer game if someone else asks. Not saying it isn't fun, it's just not for me.

    This isn't to say I don't enjoy FPSs -- I've been playing them since Wolfenstein 3D (on the PC; please God save me from the SNES atrocity...). There are just enough games on consoles that aren't available for the PC to justify it for me, and apparently many others.

If it's not in the computer, it doesn't exist.
