LittleBigPlanet Plagued By PSN Issues
Eesh. Well, considering many titles go through this rough patch with online play when they first launch, it’s not really surprising. On the other hand, it is a little disappointing.
LittleBigPlanet is a true-blue blockbuster and a masterpiece of the highest order. After a small delay, the title released this past weekend to hordes of anxious SackBoy fans, and ever since then, the story has been nothing but roses: fantastic player feedback and glowing praise from critics. However, nothing’s ever perfect, and it seems the online aspect of LBP is suffering through some tough times early on. As the PSM3 blog reports, gamers are reporting the typical problems: lag, network disconnects, freezing, and one very disconcerting complaint of users stealing finished and licensed levels and publishing them as their own. There’s also the problem of users uploading broken and/or unfinished levels, although we probably could’ve anticipated this one to be an issue at some point. All in all, Media Molecule has some work to do to clean things up, and we’re hoping it won’t take long. As they’ve said many times, LBP is all about the community and its revolutionary online co-op gameplay, so they’ve got to address these problems ASAP.
If you’re online with LittleBigPlanet over the next few days, let us know how things are going in the Comments below this article. Hopefully, we’ll start seeing fixes and repairs very soon, and the online experience should steadily get better as time goes on. Look out for update patches, too.
