Yay, Hitlercats! :D

I've been there before but it's always worth another check:

\o/ WORSE THAN KITLER \o/

Anyway, ummm... so what *exactly* is this PS3 demo thingy, and why are they wanting £2 for it? O_o

It's interactive art. :)

You either just watch it or press some buttons and shake the controller every now and then to unlock the next section. It's nice once but I haven't bothered to "play" it again.
It's rather trippy.

Is it worth 3Ä? That really depends on whether or not you like some artsy stuff and don't mind that it's actually just a 7 minute video.


Oh, and it allows you to take screenshots, which you can put on a stick and onto your computer.

Just...stunning. Y'see if you went on Dragons Den with a proper production model of those as a cat bed you'd make a mint!

No cats this time. Sorry.

You (Retroid) on LittleBigPlanet two years ago: "That can bugger off, but Home itself looks interesting."

Explain yourself, young man!

Home did look kinda interesting, but Sony have managed to claw corporate blandness from the jaws of a potentially nice experiment.

As for LBP... I've ordered a copy from Play, no idea if I'll try to make anything in it yet, but it was only £12.99! \o/

Hurrah :)

My bone of contention with LBP was that I never, ever thought it would be a AAA platform-defining smash-hit like Sony & the SDF nutters thought it would be. Looks like I was mostly right on that front, too.

As for Home.... christ, they've managed to strip almost everything worthwhile from that in one way or another. Charging silly prices for almost everything in it and quietly dropping half the features I was interested in - like other people watching video streamed from your own HDD, Divx ahoy! - just render it a horrible annoyance.

Yes, LBP isn't teh bestest game since evar, but it's still good fun in multiplayer. (Or create mode if you like that sort of thing)

I was great in multiplayer, I just wish it had worked smoothly with people back in the UK for me. It kinda killed that part in the end.

£12.99 is crazy cheap for LBP.

I'm starting to look a bit like someone who owns a PS3 now, Killzone 2 arrived at the start of this week and LBP arrived this morning and is just... charming.

What a strange design for a rug.
