LittleBigPlanet 3 (PS4) > Opinions (55)

@TrevDaRev

Even if we both agree that it will have long legs just like any other LBP game, it still is just really off that it hasn't sold much more than this by now. I mean think about it. It's not like this was a new IP launching on the PS4, LBP is a big Sony IP in which the previous console installments all sold very well. It's not like this wasn't marketed either, this was marketed heavily. I saw tons of TV ads of LBP3 all the time back when it launched. I'm just generally curious as to why this one hasn't sold as well as it should have so far.

I'm probably just letting my inner fanboy of the LBP series get the better of me though. It will still sell well like all the other LBP's eventually, so there's nothing to worry about.

It's legs are comparable to the other games. It's did 2.10 million across both platforms.

LBP3 did just over 1.278 million last year. This year it's sold over 852k. It sold over 70k last week and it should have two big weeks ahead of it. Most likely it'll end up over 1 million for the year.

Then you have to take into account its digital sales.

Not by LittleBigPlanet standards though. Just check out the other games. This should have easily hit 2m+by now. LBP is a series that usually has long legs though so I expect this will reach LBP standard of sales over time eventually, but it just depends on how long.

Should form the core of a family bundle this holidays. LBP3+Rocket League download voucher+something else that's not Knack

The people who pick up ps4 early are the hardcore gamers who want action games. LBP would have fared better if it released sorta nowish when the core and the family audience are jumping in

I still don't understand why this hasn't sold as well as the others. Did the popularity of LBP go down or something? It's a big Sony IP and the original sold 5m, then the sequel sold very well too. I remember seeing ads for this a lot on TV as well so its not like Sony didn't market it. LittleBigPlanet is usually the type of game to have long legs though so it should keep selling better over time. I still hope this can eventually catch up to the original LBP in sales.

@pitzy

I understand that it would be hard because of how well the original LBP sold, but like you said usually LBP games have good legs so i'm hoping the same word of mouth and legs should do the same for this one like they've done for every LBP game in the past.

Plus at the rate the PS4 is selling this should have an easier time I would think.

I wish it would, but that is next to impossible. LBP 1 sold so amazing bc word of mouth gave it huge legs.

600k in 4 weeks. many a title would bite your hand off for sales like that. pretty good and it's at 850k if you include the PS3 version. Million seller with the next week of updates. (plus digital makes it a safe bet).

As I said previously, black friday bundle would really help it out. Is the bundle still going now? As long as its bundled id say it will hit 1m this holiday. It doesnt appear to sell too well without the bundle though so if its not bundled still then it may not make it this year. Lifetime easily though

We stay out of here, you guys stay off SO, it is a good deal. That said, I want a public apology from someone here for shots fired on SO's page :P Even if you didn't make a comment. You apologizing on behalf of your people will be sufficient.

@Kyuu

Think A and B are the result of this IP winding down since the origional. That and D......Minecraft is out almost everywhere. PS3/PS4 owners giving MS that sweet sweet money every week, thus reducing the desire to buy another creation game like LBP3.

@JayWood
There is a few comments here from Sony fans, or any other fanbase for the matter because A) the game didn't show up in the chartz! B) nobody hyped it up in the first place! C) it's still only out in the US and D) LittleBigPlanet is all about legs, it's a baby Minecraft! The Legs will determine whether this is a success or a failure. My optimist guess is it'll hit 3m+ sales combined.

Didn't notice any other big Sony game not receiving comments from the fans..

Keep in mind it only released in NA (perhaps Canada...?) on the 18th, so it sold about 130,000 copies (PS3 and PS4 version sales combined) in 4 days in America, I think that's pretty good but hey, that's just me.

Weird, seems like Xbox games are filled with Sony member's comments but sony games has none?

Oh well. id imagine this game will have a pretty significant boost with the black friday bundle. Always did like the LBP games. Debating on LBP Vita or 3 as my next buy. Not sure which to get yet
