    I don't really like the name... but the game looks... pretty cool!

    This is the kind of racing game I really like.

    I tried to like but I hated LBP, simply because it was to much based on physics and simple design. Imo games with tighter controls are pleasing me more, though that doesn't have to apply to this new game.

    Like I said, DKR or RaymanO with more flashed out levels and tighter controls just are way more challenging and fun to play but hopefully this will turn out to be better. For example that grappling mechanic seems to grant some really new possibilities for layered levels and such...

    We'll see how this'll turn out. Also if it is not from the same developer it could be very different from the plattforming game, which I would welcome!

    Just about to post this...
    I really want this, It will be the first racing game that I will enjoy other than Mario Kart.
    I still need to get LBP2...
    Plus LBP Vita looks great but I don't have a Vita :

    I disliked Little Big Planet 1 and 2, could never get into it even when playing with others but this is something I'm interested in. As I said on IRC before, it looks like there is finally a Kart racer that can compete with Mario Kart on other systems. Modnations Racer isn't all that good, it should've been this in the first place.

    TBH out of all the new kart-racers me and my friends played the Sega one on PS3 the most (aside of Mk obviously :P). That one was pretty good!

    I really can't take LBP or Rayman. They're just too damn slow and floaty.

    Well considering that some people don't want to learn to drive with a special engine à la NFS/GT, kart games are the natural way to go. Some special things in them, but technically a eased game type. Sure there are tricks for the games and special things to do, but it's much simpler than choosing suspension/suspension levels, motors, tires, the car itself, etc. :)

    If I had a Vita and a bit of time to play, I could possible buy this at some point :)

    Funny thing is that even though you're saying "lolol ;) I'm kidding", you're still kinda not to some extent.

    It's still no Crash Team Racing though and it seems silly to already ditch ModNation Racers.

    I'm terrible at racing games, but I'll probably buy this.

    I loved ModNation Racers for PS3, and I was a bit sketchy about this game, but the trailer seems to sell it pretty well. I expect an insane level of customization for characters, karts, and tracks. Nice to know the LittleBigPlanet and ModNation Racers developers are collaborating for this one.

    This looks better than Mario Kart. I must play a demo to find out if the gameplay is superior as well.

    What is it with Sony and kart racers?

    And how can you take a series like LBP, which gave you the ability to create TONS of game types, and limit it to a racer?

    Sackboy is Sony's mascot, no brainier.

    Same with Nintendo and Mario.

    Edit: Also what do you mean "what is it with sony and kart racers?"
    Modnation Racers is the only one I can think of...
