    If only the Vita could get a port of some kind. Oh well, PS4 version for me once I get the console.

    time to ride the LBP3 hype train, 1 ticket to PS4 land please.
    one thing that I still don't understand is why they keep doing crossplatform support with PS3, shouldn't they focus on exclusive PS4 content instead?? I don't mean to leave PS3seants out of the party but still.

    Well, PS4 at least has a quality exclusive platformer now (hopefully Sony will never try anything with "Knack" again).

    I've got LBP1 for free on my PS3 and still haven't finished it but there's time.

    I forgot
    Sony's keeping good on their 10 year plan to continue supporting the PS3, which has so far helped it to reach and surpass the 360 in terms of console sales. They'll most likely start phasing out support in 2015.

    Besides, their continued support hasn't exactly hindered the PS4's sales, selling 8 mil in something like half a year is pretty good for a console launch :lol:

    A Knack 2 could actually be something good.

    i'm happy to see it on the ps3 as i feel its still too early to buy a ps4 (esp as still unhacked).
    then again, lbp 2 did not disappoint on any level on the ps3 be it graphics, storyline, level design, features etc.

    they will probably bump down the graphics in comparison to the ps4.

    wouldn't you agree that they will get more sales for ps3 over ps4?

    regarding the graphics, yeah obviously PS3 will get a backlash there, not that matter on a LBP game, but I think they could have more things going on if they focused only on PS4 for the processor/RAM side of things, but we'll see once is released.

    now on the sales. I do expect to see more PS3 sales, there are more PS3 users than PS4 and parents avoid throwing money on a PS4 and instead they just buy LBP3 for PS3. and that's the problem I see with Sony not keeping his games PS4 exclusive. they could rely on third party support to keep PS3 alive, there are lots of them still coming out. isn't like PS2 lose support after Sony stopped making games for it, the last PS2 game was PES 2014.
