      LBP1 will slowly get deserted as you won't access LBP2 with it and people will simply stop using it.
      As for the LBP1 levels you edit, they will become LBP2 levels and won't be accessible anymore for LBP1.

      But you're absolutely sure we'll be able to edit lbp1 levels in lbp2? Because I've only seen that we'll be able to play them, but it would make sense.

      Do you think they'll finally add online co-creation to LBP2? [unless they've added it to LBP1 in the last 6 months ]

      Someone has been living under a rock...

      They added that last year on November 30th.

      WHAT THE HECK IS THAT???

      At 1:19ish, it looks like a sack boy shoots a light, like a flare to light up the next part of the level... but it just travels on quickly following the contour of the level all the way around until it's up side down... what is that? I want to play with it whatever it is!

      I think it's just a sequence of lights stuck into the material behind him.

      I'm floored. I didn't think additions to the perfect game were possible besides miniscule add-ons. Oh. My. God.

      I wonder if I can make a 2d fighter game like old school streetfighter with the control pod hmmm >.>

      Technically yes you could. I heard in one of the interviews Alex said you could set something up to occur after a sequence of buttons is pressed, so x, x, o combos or something. However I'd say the biggest challenge is making characters, you could use sackbots but will they allow for kicks and such? Something we can't currently do on command. The only way I see that is making a character yourself, but you would have to work around layers and whatnot plus then collisions and yeah, could be very tricky. But I do not doubt it's possibility and expect someone to make some crazy clone of street fighter or something!

      well Im great at designing characters its one of my strong points as a artist but like you said. the functionality will be tricky :-P Ill try to make a scrolling fighter like final fight haha .

      I read something about recording and at 0:35 in the vid It looks like we can record and make videos so now we can make trailers and stuff :-)

      I'm REALLY hoping Sleepy Head will be a music track in the game. PM me if anyone finds a mp3-4. I noticed it as well, I think it is just an effect made in the backround given, not somesort of 3d layer glitch, I'm afraid.

      I'm going to need help help from cryogenics to withstand the wait. Everything I've seen has roots in stuff in the suggestions forum.

      One thing that does seem odd is how little they can show us, considering how complete what they have shown us looks.
