While many of you may disagree with me, I’m still looking for the game to play for the PS Vita. Lumines is a great game to play when you just want to kick back and get in a quick game, but it’s not a game that you would exactly play for hours on end (at least not for me). LittleBigPlanet might, just might, be the game to get more folks interested in the PS Vita. Despite slumping sales, there are a couple interesting games in the PS Vita’s near future, with LittleBigPlanet being one of them. Check out the trailer released by Sony:
What’s interesting to me is how the controls of the PS Vita will actually bring some really cool gameplay to LittleBigPlanet, controls that are unavailable to its PS3 big brother, and that are hopefully unlike the gimmicky controls of the other first wave of PS Vita games. LittleBigPlanet could arguably be one of the best types of games for having a front touchscreen (personally, the rear touchscreen adds little gameplay value to any game in my opinion). With such creative levels, the ability to manipulate your environment both in playing and creating levels via touch could add another dynamic to the game unavailable in previous LBP console games. Hopefully, LittleBigPlanet will be one of the answers to the prayers that Sony has been asking for.
