The game that could get me to buy a PS3

Don't get me wrong: Despite the fact that 80 percent of the posts on this blog are related to Nintendo systems, I like the other guys' systems, too. Heck, I've bought both of Sony's previous non-portable consoles, and I've seriously considering getting their portable offering as well.

So far, though, the PS3 just hasn't interested me. Partially because it's so darn expensive and partially because I just haven't seen any games that made me sit up and say, "Wow!"

That changed this morning when I saw video of the upcoming "community-based" game, LittleBigPlanet.

Created by Media Molecule, a studio made up of ex-Lionhead staffers and makers of the cultish Rag Doll Kung Fu, LittleBigPlanet is best described as an open-ended, gravity-based, multiplayer platformer. That sure clears things up, doesn't it? :) has done the best job (in my opinion) of both summing up the version made available at GDC this morning and giving those of us who couldn't make the trip to San Francisco a glimpse of it through videos. Here's the site's write-up and here's a nice little video of it in all its Pixar-like glory.
