    Quaz, that was an incredible contrivence! Filled the thermometer!
    Yes, you can readily find al the levels created by a player, or hearted by a player, and generally track player paths through the world of creating and sharing. TBH I found the interface rather cluttered in my briefest of visits, but it probably makes sense if you actually have a look at it!

    Quaz basically built a chip layout :D. Design your own chips in LBP ... lol! Maybe they can make a special version for designing chips and do a contest for who can design the next Cell ... ;)

    This is all from one brief glimpse at the video though so take with a grain of salt ...

    Lego Mindstorm addon pack confirmed!

    Seriously that would be a cool addition to the game.

    Pen and paper :)

    The XMB seems to detect my Wacom tablet without much problems (I can brows and select by using my pen) but in LBP it doesn't seem to be supported.

    Wont eyepet ship with the possiblity of drawings thing, hold it for the eyetoy and to import it as an 3D object ?

    LBP gets 10\10 from the Playstation Official Magazine .

    Not that i put any faith in reviews from platform specific places.

    This is simply consuming me right now - all can think about is things/levels I can make!

    Even I can use this excellent 'tool'...last night I came up with an idea for a level, after I fleshed out a very basic set, me and my eldest son (11) were just bouncing ideas and putting them into action - it's great stuff.

    My only problem is forgetting to glue! I need to start my level again - this time with glue EVERYWHERE! Having said that I think I should move onto another project, I don't want to waste time 'fine tuning' or anything when I could start something else (and it's possible that everything will be lost)...I'm thinking of now making a big monster with moving parts.

    So that's me - 1st a volcano, then a shell of a level and now a monster with moving parts - hopefully this will give me good knowledge for when the retail comes out :)

    Thanks for the test. This is what I wanted to know.

    PS Eye import is useful for LittleBigPlanet too. It is a perfect fit for a sub-3D world like LBP.

    I look forward to EyePet more because of the AI. Personalization is nice but I think LBP has more breadth and depth in the user-generated content area.


    Sony should make LBP the Home world ? :p
    It is much more engaging because of the user-generated content aspect. SackBoys are also more expressive than regular Home folks. In-game advertising (Furnitures and what not) is still possible within LBP. Dress can be launched as a separate app. The only missing pieces are an open game launching service and a larger concurrent user size.

    Actually I'd been a bit skeptical about this game which is taking so long to develop, but after seeing these videos doing storytelling, computer, shooting game, engine, etc etc I'm starting to think this little game is becoming something even bigger than what I originally thought it to be. Oh and the new angle is very cool, it makes nice puppet show effects.

    That's alright. I'm glad more people got in. After all my searching, I still needed a friend to point me to that site. Thought I'd post the link on a few forums I visit while I was downloading, so more people I know can get in.

    Yes, LBP is phenomenal, but I am wary about their community management. Recently they locked a creator out because he made a level with corpses (The theme was murder suspense).

    LBP does not have built-in level filtering yet. It's based freely on tags now. So I can understand why they want to take the content out. But I think they acted too harshly by locking the creator out completely, and they do so without any communications.

    They should appoint a community manager asap to deal with situations like this. I have seen website growth stunted because of community issues. It was only obvious when comparing successful and not-so-successful sites. I am not sure if Sony understands the dynamics behind LBP. By "understand", I also mean the willingness to take extra trouble to connect with people.

    Communication is one of the worst areas for Sony this gen. It will hurt LBP and their user generated efforts if they behave "as is".

    Just got the beta code yesterday, didn't have much time to play LBP yet, only the first "tutorial" level.
    Can't wait to get my hands on building things!

    I think this game actually boosts one's IQ :)

    My mind is starting to bubble with ideas...

    Just in case you don't know, but the electronic calculator has made it to the front page in slashdot.

    Awesome

    I like this idea a lot too:



    And this is a pretty decent 'themed' level also.
    (I recommend watching them in high quality on the youtube site directly though)



    ... and part 2: (it's a big level!)



    EDIT: new LBP create class up (episode 2):

    That last one is hilarious! "Throw them in the fire!" :lol:
    And I loved when he got the car/demon skull on the platform and it went down and the floor closed. Very neat. :grin:

    That god of war stage is SO much fun to play. Played with 1 friend and had a plast, tried with 3 people and got some serious lag / frame rate issues, lol. Still, this guy has been putting out some quality stuff.
