Disney Joins LittleBigPlanet Mania?

If you hadn't noticed, LittleBigPlanet mania has spread throughout the gaming world (much to Sony's delight, we're sure). Nobody was shocked to see it pop up at the fifth annual Penny Arcade Expo on Labor Day weekend, and as one NeoGAF attendee discovered, Sony and Disney may make for an all-star duo when it comes to new content for LBP.

As you can see by this post over at the NeoGAF forums, it seems the PR representative showing off LBP at PAX dropped an interesting little tidbit of info: Disney will join the cascade of new content that's guaranteed to arrive for Media Molecule's promising co-op platformer. Oh yes, that's right; Mickeys and Donalds running around, Goofy dragging over a big ol' block so Pluto can jump up, etc, etc, etc. Considering the sheer amount of freedom in terms of customization, this may only be the beginning...how many other companies out there will want their lovable mascots bouncing around LittleBigPlanet? What about superheroes? You know, get Marvel and DC in there. Or how about real-life celebrities from the movie and music industries? The licensing involved in the special content could be absolutely out of control, but neither Sony or players are likely to complain.

Oh, and it seems we can expect InFamous in 2009, too, but that's not a big surprise. It's Disney sinking its far-reaching claws into LittleBigPlanet that caught our attention, so thanks to the NeoGAF crew for checking out PAX. However, in response to the defense of the standard NeoGAF stigma that the forum is full of fanboys and elitists...well, in some ways, that stigma is well deserved. Just admit it, guys. What you meant to say is that not all members are like that, right? ;)

That's what I'm talking about. With Disney and other major companies, LBP is going to be famous as hell and guess what? It IS going to be PS3's killer app, hands down.

Wow, could it be that we have no idea how huge this game is gonna be?

What would they do though? I don't think Media Molecule would let them replace their sackboys with Disney characters.

They're probably gonna give them outfits and stuff like that. You know how they did it with Kratos and the girl from heavenly sword? Pretty much that way.

No. Just. No.

Disney is a horrible, horrible thing. We all already know that LBP is going to be the "gateway drug" that puts PS3s in the hands of 5th graders everywhere. We don't need disney getting in on it as well. Then we're only a couple steps down from the 360's crowning achievement of having the "Most Annoying Online Community EVER!"

Won't someone stop the madness.

My thoughts exactly
I just hate most American cartoons period.

Unless it's silly BS like Family Guy, etc.

thts cool... now we can expect all the pixar characters to make an appearance in LBP. tht'd be better than mickeys and donalds. Come to think of it, we could make our own castle of illusion in LBP

So, if Disney is buying into this, does this mean that it'll be less than $60, since Disney will help subsidize it?

Hahaha, I make myself laugh.
