Why LittleBigPlanet Will Succeed

By now you’ve probably seen Sony’s recently announced LittleBigPlanet. The gameplay videos that are out there are alright, showing a cutesy co-op platformer. Nothing particularly mesmerizing. But it’s the full demonstration that you need to watch. The full demo showing the depth of creation and playfulness at hand. So why will this succeed?

One easy answer: Line Rider. Here’s a simplistic pseudo-game toy that spawned all this user created content. Multiply that several times over and you have LittleBigPlanet.

And I would wager that within days of it being available, there will be a Super Mario Bros. themed stage — textured and everything.
