TGS 2008: Sackboy leads Sony booth offerings
Little Big Planet featured prominently at Sony TGS booth alongside adults-only showings for Resistance 2, Killzone 2.
TOKYO--Sackboy, Little Big Planet's main character and now default PlayStation mascot, is only supposed to be a small fellow, but a gigantic version was rolled out for Sony's plus-size booth at this year's Tokyo Game Show. The big Sackboy was seated around a slowly spinning globe, and formed the centerpiece of a busy Sony booth which had dozens of games on show for both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable.
While Little Big Planet took center stage, plenty of other Sony titles were allowed to shine, albeit behind closed doors that attendees needed proof of age to get past. Upcoming first-party titles Resistance 2, Killzone 2, and SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation could only be accessed by those over the age of 17. There were still plenty of other PS3 titles for the underaged to play, however, with games such as MotorStorm: Pacific Rift, Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm, WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009, and more on hand.
Plenty of PSP and downloadable PlayStation Network titles were also playable, including Loco Roco 2 and Lumines Supernova. The PSN section was also home to the decidedly kooky Tetris-like Gomibako, which sees players having to stack as much garbage as possible into a large junkyard bin.
