HONESTLY, Why do you feel the need to bash on LittleBigPlanet? It can't just be considered a good game. It's an over advertised game. Just leave it alone for christs sake.
Otherwise, Platformers are NOT dead. This is just by a very minor company that doesn't exactly scream "amazing" with their projects in most cases. Other then that, I do agree with your last sentence.
Wow i dont really know where do you see LBP bashing? I know it is a good interesting game, and i never bashed it's quality/
i'm just saying that Sony had to put a LOT of Effort into getting sales that it gets, massive hype, media campaign. I think you should stop looking for conspiracies or attacks on PS3 software, because there was no such thing in my post, i just said that platformers are not that much of a popular genre (and i really do enjoy them personally), chill out.
