Salvatore Fileccia of Rare doesn't feel their upcoming Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts platformer is in direct competition with Media Molecule’s LittleBigPlanet.
Fileccia said while they're both platformers it doesn't mean a head-to-head rivalry. "I’m pretty sure the two games are going to be pretty different," he added.
With the recent announcement of user generated content playing a big role in Nuts & Bolts, fans have started to compare it alongside LittleBigPlanet, of which details are still being kept scarce.
"I don’t think we’re a competitor," he said, speaking to . "I think, obviously, we compete in a completely different dimension; we’re 3D, they’re 2D. I mean, I don’t know the complete details of LittleBigPlanet, obviously, but I’m pretty sure the two games are going to be pretty different."
"We’re obviously going for the same aim, which is to evolve the genre, with physics as well, and with creativity - but I think you’ll find that the outcome is quite dramatically different games."
Let's hope there's a fan-ceasefire summit already going through the motions before things get ugly.
