Sackboy Is Sad


Ladies and gentlemen. Boys and girls. Today, Sackboy is sad.

After spending the last few years saving the world from zombies, pirates, giant robots and Liquid Snake himself ( a feat few have accomplished mind you ), it appears Sackboys services are no longer required. Today Sackboy got his pink slip form Media Molecule, who announced this week that they were “stepping away” from our favorite little big hero.

MM has decided to move on to newer things instead, dropping Sackboy like a sack of hot potatoes. Stuffed on the shelf never to heard from again. Yes, it’s a sad day in Craft World as it appears that there won’t be another Little Big Planet game on the PS3 for sometime. What will become of Sackboy??

Look away. Nothing to see here but another sad, unemployed Sack Thing with 12 sackcats to feed at home. How will Sackboy survive this dreaded turn of events? Who will save the universe from giant mushroom invaders from Planet Overthar? What will become of Sackboy, for the love of all things crocheted!?!

Oh wait! Sackboy almost forgot!

Tarsier Studios is bringing Little Big Planet to the PlayStation Vita soon! It’s not the end for Sackboy after all! Sackboy is smiling once more! Little Big Planet lives on! Sackboy gets to bounce around and wag his tongue for another day. All is right with the world.

*Please note that Media Molecule hasn’t publicly stated their plans regarding the future of Little Big Planet. Sackboy just tends to exaggerate.

    Perhaps they’ll do something on the PS4. I think two games is a good amount, they’re both amazing. Not to mention we do have the online community to expand upon indefinitely.

    Maybe they’re abandoning LBP and going for a different feel to the game, maybe Sackboy could be the star again, just for a different kind of game. Nintendo really like to do things like that, why not them? Sackboy is famous and loved, he shouldn’t be forgotten!

    @Pedro He’ll never be forgotten, he is forever stitched in our hearts!

    @ Pedro & Jcmdaddy Yup. Totally agree.

    I hope there will be more LBP. I think step away might mean work on a different game and come back to this one in a few years. Just because they are stepping away does not mean they can’t step forward again later.

    LBP2 is the type of game that you can play on and off for years.. there is always something new added to the online experience. It’s actually amazing what people are still doing. I take a week or 3 between plays, and find so much new stuff, you could play for hours.

    LBP 1 was said to only need updates, and that there wouldn’t be a 2. Well, with 2, we definitely don’t need a 3. At least anytime soon..

    That’s the truth. I logged in the other day and played a level where you’re a jellyfish-like thing under water and you have to use little different color ameba to help progress through the stage. Very ingenious.

    Really can’t wait to see what MM are working on next.

    So the point of this article is that basically that Media Molecule isn’t rushing to do LBP3?

    I HATE LBP. I hate to see a series so many love die, but I HATE LBP. Such a baby game!!!

    Yea 2 is a good number, but its sad that sack boy is sad. And yea I think they should save some ideas for PS4

    In a few months, LBP will be expanded with the Move DLC. They are still working on this, they have a closed beta with select authors. It will bring Move support both for creation and for gameplay. And I think the best move mini games will come out of LBP2, look nowhere else.

    The DLC not only brings move support, but it also will come with new sensors, new materials, which will make pixel art much more feasible.

    Oh, btw, I made a boulder dash 1:1 remake. But I couldn’t even get Tosh to play it, dammit. At least watch the darn video:

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, LBP3D for the PS4…

    I never liked LBP. Was very childish.

    It really isn’t the kind of game you’d like. I’m not crazy about it either, but it can be very impressive sometimes.

    It’s also good fun to play with my girlfriend and it’s one of the few gaming moments we get to share, so I’ll take it anytime.

    You sound like my mother. The first thing she asked when she saw me playing LBP1 was “Isn’t that a children’s game?” Lol. It was hard to explain to her that it wasn’t with the theme to the Gardens stage playing in the background.

    childs game? you’re one of those people who just plays call of duty and thinks you’re a man because of it right? i bet you watch spike tv while drinking a bear and you smirk thinking you’re such an adult.

    if you’d see the innovation created with this game by the community you’d have a different opinion…but you’ll never do that because you’ll just go watch spike tv and play some call of duty instead.

    have fun with that
