Sony Worldwide Studios Boss Shuhei Yoshida is predicting that Media Molecule’s upcoming and very highly anticipated LittleBigPlanet will be the biggest game on the PLAYSTATION 3 for all Sony markets, including Japan.
â€œLittleBigPlanet is going to be the biggest title for Sony in all markets this year,â€ he said.
â€œHistory tells us how difficult it is for games developed in Europe or in the US to be successful in Japan, and with this generation we see Japanese consumer supporting more and more games coming from western Europe,â€ Yoshida added.
The game will be one of the biggest games on the PLAYSTATION 3, but also one of the biggest across all three next-gen consoles.
â€œItâ€™s massively important, because it has so many things that itâ€™s doing right in our minds,â€ he told us.
â€œThat really shows the way the whole industry will be heading. Giving power to the consumers to express their creativity by creating something thatâ€™s fun for others to play. So we really want to make it a global success, including the Japanese market.â€
We’ll see this Ocober.
