Size Does Matter – Just Ask SackBoy

Proposition Pluto

My fellow Americans,

It’s me … SackBoy! Now that you can go pickup LittleBigPlanet in your local retailer, I can take on other matters that are important to me other than playing, creating and sharing! So I wanted to take this opportunity to bring your attention to a worthwhile cause.

Well, as you know it’s election season here and it’s not all about Democrats and Republicans. There are bigger issues going on and I need YOU to get involved!

Back in 2006, the International Astronomical Union declassified Pluto, our solar system’s littlest big planet, from a real planet to a dwarf planet. This is a travesty and we must stand together to bring Pluto back to the solar system as the LittleBigPlanet. So join me, SackBoy, in helping to get enough signatures to get Pluto back into the solar system!

I have made a campaign advertisement that I want you to watch and share with your friends. Afterwards, log onto my campaign page and sign up so I can keep you updated on the campaign!

You can also find me on Twitter and on FaceBook — if you join our group, we’ll gift you bumper stickers and buttons to share with your friends!

So thank you for your time!

My name is SackBoy … and I approved this message!

oh and the only reason they are doing this is because of this bit here of what you did not understand http://www.propositionpluto.com/know_the_facts.html

What does “cleared its neighborhood” mean? As planets form, they become the dominant gravitational body in their orbit in the Solar System. As they interact with other, smaller objects, they either consume them, or sling them away with their gravity. Pluto is only 0.07 times the mass of the other objects in its orbit. The Earth, in comparison, has 1.7 million times the mass of the other objects in its orbit.

im sorry for messaging alot but im against this

I think a part of my brain died after reading this blog and watching the video. It was like “If this is what you are going to use me for…i quit”

Is it just me, or does “Sackboy” speaking creep anyone else out? I’ve been playing my little guy for hours on end, and he doesn’t say a word. I sort of feel embarassed like when one of those people in a Mickey costume walks up to you in Disney World.

Sackboy is American?

Well, not to be anti-American or anything, but what the hell? I mean, couldn’t he be from his own little country or something? I mean, Brits, Australians, Japanese people, etc aren’t gonna love Sackboy as much now.

I just got the game today. Was great, until I wanted to play with my friends. We connected our 3rd party Logitech controllers to the PS3 and attempted to play.

After MANY HOURS of troubleshooting, I’ve finally found that 3rd party controllers DON’T WORK WITH THIS GAME.

This is the MOST RIDICULOUS thing ever. Such a GREAT game and my FIRST experience is trying to figure out why my controllers DON’T work with the game to find out the game DOES NOT SUPPORT 3rd party controllers. Horrible.

Why not try and sae LittleBigPlanet? Online is broke. I have yet to play online with anyone. Lag is like taking the space shuttle to Pluto, you just aren’t going to get there. The game loads and loads and loads. Then you finally get in and the screen is going at 120fps, good job.

My vote is to save LittleBigPlanet from the used rack at Gamestop!

Sorry but there’s no way Pluto should be classified as a full planet. There are WAY too many bodies that are as big or bigger than Pluto out there in the solar system, so if we would classify Pluto as a planet the solar system should contain hundreds of planets. It’s messy.

Sorry, but Pluto is a dwarf-planet, it’s the most logical way. The Vulcans would agree with me.

growing up Pluto was always a planet…screw the other “satellites” Pluto has a place in my childhood and heart as the real Little Big Planet. They say that other celestial bodies need to be added as planets to justify Pluto…I say NO!

I voted Yes on Prop Pluto…won’t you too?

+ technodoll on November 1st, 2008 at 12:10 pm said:

The debate came to a head in 2006 with an IAU resolution that created an official definition for the term “planet”. According to this resolution, there are three main conditions for an object to be considered a ‘planet’:

1. The object must be in orbit around the Sun.
2. The object must be massive enough to be a sphere by its own gravitational force. More specifically, its own gravity should pull it into a shape of hydrostatic equilibrium.
3. It must have cleared the neighbourhood around its orbit.[99][100]

Pluto fails to meet the third condition, since its mass was only 0.07 times that of the mass of the other objects in its orbit (Earth’s mass, by contrast, is 1.7 million times the remaining mass in its own orbit).[101][102] The IAU further resolved that Pluto be classified in the simultaneously created dwarf planet category, and that it act as the prototype for the plutoid category of trans-Neptunian objects, in which it would be separately, but concurrently, classified.[103]

Thanks to the consistent brilliant marketing of this game, this was a Day 1 purchase for me. Thanks to my inability to actually have any type of quality online play since Tuesday, this is going to fund an awesome trade in for Resistence, Fallout, BioShock, MoterStorm or any of the other 4-5 B level titles that are on my list. Awesome single player game, amazing marketing, innovative idea – extreamly poor execution at launch. You only get one first impression peeps. :(

I get errors when trying to join some people playing online, including some people from my friends list.

Help, please!

And, yes, PLEASE fix the servers. It’s going to end up destroying LittleBigPlanet’s rep if it doesn’t even have a functional online mode. The lag is so massive that the only thing I can catch is myself falling into a pit. >:(

Pluto was my favorite planet as a kid and now they say it isn’t. Pluto was found and called a planet in the 1930s now less then 100yrs later it isn’t? Seriously I hope they bring it back as a planet. The Magic School Bus epiosde on the Solar System is now out of date since they went to Pluto.

+ senjutsu_dav on November 1st, 2008 at 8:13 pm said:

… Pluto is not a planet, it’s an asteroid. The idea of “the little big planet” is funny, but the ad isn’t. It seems like you really want to prove something, if it’s real, please try not to use gamers in your “evil plot” (MoUaHAHahAhaha!!). And if it’s done to be funny, it should be funny then, not serious…

PS: Pluto is not a planet, lol. Billions of asteroids are moving around where is pluto, and a lot of them are bigger anyway. Or there is billions of planets in the solar system (kids won’t like you! It was already hard to learn the list we had in school, lol), or pluto is not a planet, you choose.

+ joelface on November 2nd, 2008 at 5:17 am said:

i dont know that i want to vote for pluto to be called a planet, considering its still called a dwarf-planet. to have that changed, would change how all dwarf-planets are classified, and that seems highly unnecessary.

nevertheless, i think its a pretty funny marketing idea for the game, little-big-planet. lol. truly hilarious.

i am still tempted to vote anyways. but alas.. i shall refrain!

+ Jman9902 on November 2nd, 2008 at 10:52 pm said:

well, seeing as how Pluto’s mass is .0021 the mass of Earth… makes sense why it isn’t a planet any longer


99

+ Jman9902 on November 2nd, 2008 at 10:56 pm said:

and the reason pluto isn’t a planet anymore is because it doesn’t adhere to the laws of planets, the law that it breaks is “It needs to have cleared the neigborhood of its orbit” meaning it needs to be a substantial size larger than objects orbiting it, and pluto is only .07 times the mass of the objects orbiting it… don’t mean to pull figures, but so many people ask “why isn’t pluto a planet!?”

ok this is not about pluto even though to me its still a planet its just the govt thinks they need to spend are money on something they think is a good ideal and it bites them in the butt…. about thing i was going to talk about ur play create and share motto ur play and share get 100% but the create only get a 60-70% becuse u said u can if u can think it u can creat it but for my sackboy or girl how am i post to my ungue costume with a limmited amount of accesorries and im offer 75% item compleation at the moment
