But most of all, itís an all out horrible teeth-gnashing bloody battle to the death to see who will actually bother voting, and who is the BEST DEVELOPER EVAR.

    Now is the time people! Sign up and vote for us, the true underdogs of this war. Do your duty and vote, vote, vote for Molecule! Iíll lead the charge! The 900 billion people who own Rock Band wonít even know whatís hit Ďem!

    Vote Molecule!

      Right... but hey, that is a good idea (kind of). We just need to let the LBP community know about this contest. Think about it. Millions of people play LBP, so the community can give Mm that big boost.

      Besides, Harmonix is going to release the song "We are the Champions" if they win.

      It wasn't meant as a joke. I was genuinely frustrated with your suggestion.

      You mean your comment was a joke? Um.... wouldn't it have to be funny for it to be a joke?

      So that must've been a "joke" too. That's hilarious.

      So do you suppose that was a joke too? Cuz, if it is, it's almost as funny as the Doopz' jokes.

      Now see that one actually sounds like it's meant to be a joke. Actually, it's kind of a passive-aggressive half-joke: saying it like a joke, but you really partly mean it.

      As for the ff costume(s), I looked into it a few months back and the impression I got (though it wasn't said outright) was that Square Enix was responsible for it not happening, not Mm.

      Oh wow. I actually can't bring myself to vote in this lol. Both companies are amazing. I'm a huge fan of rock band AND the original guitar heroes, back when Harmonx was making em. Harmonix has doe such a great job releasing constant DLC for their game, and they're the ones who pioneered the modern music game genre. Yet at the same time MM is also a great company, which gave me the game I've spent more time on than any other. I can't decide!

      Why couldn't the competition be between Mm and Activision, possibly the most irritating gaming company ever made? That would simplify things a huge deal.

      Indecisiveness for the win.

      FF pack was never said to be cancelled at all...so idk who your source was but unless it's in the OFFICIAL littlebigplanet or Mm website...it's false

      and no mine wasn't a joke...though kernel's probably was...although idk why you think all comments are jokes..some could be serious...like mine was....but yeah like i said FF pack was never cancelled....

      so my vote for a company that announce DLC almost 2 years ago and havent delivered...have lost my vote...and harmonix has rockband...that game is pretty sweet and there's always DLC on the market...they dont announce things and then dont deliver

      but thats if its voting for the company...if its for the game then LBP hands down...but this seems to be a vote for companies only....but to be honest maybe none of them will get my vote

      but yeah its not an attack on Mm...just to me they shoulda been more efficient with it...dont announce DLC unless you can deliver...or at least give us an update on it...not just leave it all hush hush...or be lazy with it...that being said...don't flame me for my opinion...just tired of it all

      Making DLC for a game like rockband = easy... artists/labels front the funds and have no reason to make legal red tape or hold things up, they collect royalties, and an hour or so of work has colored keys mapped out to the instrumentation. It's probably totally automated detection at this point... then they roll in dough and repeat.

      MM on the other hand... small, handcrafted individuality, and when they deliver, they deliver BIG time. Square was the hold up for FF DLC, not MM.

      I would definitely vote for Mm but I don't fancy signing up and giving my details to a website I've never heard of in my life. I've been ripped off too many times before, not to mention all the junk email I get every time I sign up anywhere new. I also don't own a nervous little bird.

      Still if it were possible to vote by proxy then it would be Mm all the way for me. Also because I've never even heard of the other one.
