So, it appears EA is making a Little Big Planet clone. For anyone who doesn't already have a PS 3, this looks like it might be a good substitute.
What do you think?
If they do it better, great. Since it'll be on PC, too, you can have better level sharing.
Here's the full presser:
Guildford, UK, August 2, 2010 – The Play Label of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) today announced Create TM, a must-have video game this holiday for the whole family that is powered by imagination and rewards players for being creative. Available this November for the Wii TM, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system featuring PlayStation®Move compatibility, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system, PC, and MAC, Create presents imaginative gameplay challenges where the solutions are fuelled by the creativity of the player.
“Create uses families’ imaginations to develop new ways to play together that are both fun and challenging,” said Harvey Elliott, VP and General Manager at EA Bright Light. “We wanted to design a game where the entire family can explore, decorate, and solve challenges where no solution is wrong and the only limit is the imagination.”
The more players explore the game, solve level-based challenges, and customize their world, the more rewards will be unlocked. Creativity will be unleashed as players design environments with easy-to-use brushes and tools, including textures, props and animating objects that bring the scene to life. On the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, and MAC players can share any of their creations, solutions or challenges with the community through the console and also via the official Create website at www.create.ea.com. Friends can download and remix solutions and set challenges for other players to download and complete. Imaginations will run wild this holiday!
Create for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, and PC is developed by EA Bright Light and has not yet been rated by the ESRB. For more information or to download assets visit www.info.ea.com.
Wait...so it's just Little Big Planet WITHOUT the sac dolls?...so it's the complete opposite of The Same But More or Up to Eleven for video games?...there should be a trope for that.
Actually, it's not Little Big Planet or even a platformer.
It's The Incredible Machine.
Create at TGS '10.
Meh, looks boring in my opinion. The game play looks way too shallow for my taste. And the same goes with the scene creator. All the creation system really looks like to me is placing a bunch bricks and dinosaurs. And the challenges really just seem like a neutered version of The Amazing Machine.
Well, it doesn't actually look like an improvement. I haven't played Little Big Planet since I don't have a PS 3, and while this looks interesting the game seems to be trying to wow us with how pretty you can make some scenes, when the only physics challenges seem to be pretty basic.
I may buy it, but I'm expecting to be disappointed .
Given there's a whole bunch of relevant technology from Spore they could leverage, this could turn out good.
EA eats everything.
