Kevin Butler Whizzes Into LittleBigPlanet Karting

Here’s a funny little thing. PlayStation’s very own VP of Everything Awesome is coming to LittleBigPlanet Karting.

Yup Kevin Butler, the exec you’ll be familiar with from Sony’s E3 pressers and those occasionally hilarious advertising campaigns, will be made available as an incentive to all those that pre-order the game from either Amazon or GameStop.

He’s quite cute too, with a side parting and a golf kart to race around in. Check out the image below.

Haha, if this games shapes up how it should this is a definite reason to pre-order!

sick case, more lbp is great even if this seems like a bit of a copy of MNR.

Cover says "Playstation Move Compatible". That always means you CAN use Move, but its not required.

Plus, theyd be dumb to make an entire LBP game Move only. DLC, yeah. But not a complete title.

They could include Gemma Atkinson as a preorder bonus and I still wouldn't buy it. I already learned my lesson after wasting $60 to preorder ModNation Racers: United Front Games is a TERRIBLE developer who ships unfinished, broken games and doesn't fix the problems after release with patches. And the game itself wasn't good anyway, the racing mechanics were terrible. They obviously spent all their time working on the creation aspects and completely forgot to make good racing physics with fair, balanced weapons.

So yeah, another racing game by UFG? Put whatever theme you want on top of it, there's absolutely nothing that would make me buy another one of their games. Mario Kart & Crash Team Racing FTW.

... Personally? Kevin Butler, is a good spokeman for the PlayStation home console, but really Sony let the game fall (again) when they abandoned the PlayStation Portable, and Marcus. Marcus, was w-a-y cooler then, Kevin. Had more attitude too, and personally was awsome for the PlayStation Portable.

I hope this costume as well as everything from LBP Karting can be ported over to LBP2

If there are sackboys, I'm buying.
I bet this puts mod nation to shame, even being the same studio. I would like to think some companies learn from their mistakes.

Not to be rude but you guys are late on revealing this information. It was revealed like a month ago... Anyway, I'll probably be pre-ording the game anyway.

Does this mean the mod nation brand is transforming into LBP, or is this a completely original title?

Sorry to say I'm a bit burned out on the LBP thing.
I think they should have somehow integrated this into LBP2.

I guess the figured they'd go the platformer ( yeah I know..) goes karting route ala Mario Kart, Crash Team Racing, Jak X, etc..

Well, poor Kevin didn't fit in with the guys at SOCOM, so LBP's probably the next best thing. xD

Eh. I have mod nation, and I don't like that game much. I wonder if it would be similar.
