LittleBigPlanet will sell PS3s

I’m going to go out on a limb and say that LittleBigPlanet is shaping up to be a pretty good game. In fact, I’m going to go ahead and spill the beans. LBP will probably be a commercial success. Apparently associate producer for the game, Eric Fong, is thinking along the same lines as I am. In an interview with gamesindutry.biz, Fong believes that the success of the game will lead to hardware sales.

It’s going to be a hardware seller. Not only do you have the platforming experience that a lot of other games will have, you have this creativity that really is exclusive to LittleBigPlanet.

I’m partial to the ideas of LittleBigPlanet, and I was really hooked when I saw the ingenuity utilized during the Sony Press Conference at E3 this year. Yet, will the great ideas and success lead to sales of the PlayStation 3? It doesn’t seem like LBP will have the same effect that a Halo or Mario title does for their respective machines in terms of name recognition, which goes quite a long way. What do you guys think? For those of you without a PS3, will you be getting one when LBP hits?
