Your sig is amazing. I love the Spike Lee “sit yo ass down” part.

It took them a long time but it looks like Media Molecule has done it again. Please do not shut them down Sony!

Anyone remember sales of LBP series? The sales data have disappeared. It’s a shame Vgchartz doesn’t keep track of a lot of games released in the past.

The data is still here : http://www.vgchartz.com/gamedb/games.php?name=littlebigplanet

The series was on a downward trajectory with each new sequel: LBP1 - 5.84m, LBP2 - 3.43m and LBP3 - 2.06m

Oh thank you. You gotta click the individual title. The general search page lists “NA”. Good to know going forward

Okay, I take back much of what I said. They seem to have adressed a lot, if not most of my complaints in the final release from what I played this evening, right down to templates for certain genres. The user created games that came up on my screen when I logged in are fucking amazing as well, one felt like I was playing an isometric indie game I'd paid 20 quid for and I WANT to go back to my session on it, which is conveniently saved. Played a bit of arts dream to see what the most polished Experience can be and if it's true that they created it entirely in the game itself then we could see some crazy things come out of the vommunity over the next few years. Proper high end indie games with polish as high as Ori and the blind forest yet only bound by that fluffy look from the graphics style of dreams when usong to much memory.
Super impressed by what I've played this evening and a tenfold improvement over the beta. I can't belive they added this much polish in such a short period of time I only have to assume that the Early access was an early slice of the game and they were already far further than that build. Now I am just waiting for a VR patch.

Yes let's compare different platforms and 10 years difference between release.

Since when have a game costing 60 become something problematic or preventing a game from have good sales? 60 would only be a problem if people don't find value on that. From memory Minecraft when launching on PS3/X360 was like 30USD right? Count inflation and you aren't that much apart.

Minecraft is just as popular if not more so then it was when it launched. It’s still very much relevant as games today in the same genre. You said the price was similar, which was intriguing to me. You made me genuinely curious, but if it’s $60 when PS4 itself has Minecraft available for $20 I just don’t see it being a fair fight beyond the first 2 months. 

Sure Minecraft is popular, don't remember saying otherwise. And sure I don't expect Dreams to get anywhere near that much sales. If you don't think it is fair why did you bring it to the discussion?

Also, to squash yout arguments. Pretty sure this game is 39.99. Ten euro higher than that Beta but not nearly as expensive as a full 69.99 euro release (usual price for AAA, give or take 10 depending on the publisher) here.

Because business isn’t fair. Im saying it’s a shame that this games legs will be cut off by Minecrafts enduring popularity, especially with its PS4 version. Sony should market this game and get the most of its lifespan. 

Hey I’m not Sony’s biggest fan. But even I can feel sympathy that a developer spent the majority of the gen making this 90+ metacritic title only for it to be underexposed. Because unless you are Minecraft or Mario Maker I think Media Molecule should pick a different genre to make games if Dreams has no legs. And if it does and sells great, I’ll gladly admit I was wrong.
