Fat Princess: Her Majesty Awaits…

Deborah Mars's Avatar + Posted by Deborah Mars on Jul 17, 2009 // Managing Producer, SCEA Santa Monica Studio

Hey Everyone,

This is Deb Mars, Managing Producer at SCEA Santa Monica Studio. We know many of you are anxiously awaiting the sweet PlayStation Network arrival of none other than Her Royal Highness: Fat Princess.

You have been very patient, and we really do appreciate all your support. Since E3 back in early June, we and the fantastic development team at Titan Studios have been working very hard to get the fine lady and her beloved subjects all ready for their much-anticipated debut.

So here’s the deal: We have tons of info to share with you, but we want to take this opportunity to let you all ask the questions. So, go ahead…ask us. Let us know what you want to know.

Post questions below in response to this blog entry, and then we’ll gather a bunch of them to put forth to Titan Studios. They will answer these questions directly during a PlayStation Eye video chat interview with our good pal, Jeff R, next week.

Enjoy some of the new screenshots, and we’ll be seeing you on the battlefield soon!

Wow, guys, relax… srsly.

This was posted on the 17th, add 7 days and you get the 24th – so expect the interview tomorrow I guess.

As for my own question: Commenter #120 described and asked it very well, so I’m just going to copypasta it here, hopefully it will be answered:


“My top concern is how well does the game plays online? Does it have its own servers or does it run on the other players’ connection?

The reason I ask is because I have a very unstable and slow internet connection. The only games I’ve been able to play with no lag are those that use Sony servers such as Resistance, Warhawk and the Uncharted 2 beta to name a few. I haven’t had problems with it online nor with Burnout Paradise.

On the other hand, I’ve never been able to play LittleBigPlanet online since as I recall it’s P2P..

so…will I be able to play it as smoothly as Warhawk (which feels like a single player game) or will I be treated to a photo slideshow of the game (as in LBP)?”

I too have problems with playing LBP online, which actually made me regret buying it. I really want to get FP, but if I won’t be able to play online, I see no point in buying it =/

JUSTINJOHNSON69

You my friend, are the idiot. Everyone could tell that guy was joking except you! You really thought he was serious when he said that they are having a Q & A delay due to technical difficulties?! Are you really that dense?! It was intended as a joke. Don’t ever call me an idiot unless you want to get called out on your own stupidity. The game is coming out next week. Don’t get your panties in a twist you freakin’ lame-brain! Man, you are one whiny lil’ biatch with absolutely NO LIFE


420

+ Dirty_Dave on July 23rd, 2009 at 3:56 pm said:

Hey, it’s the 23rd of July and it is 7:00 pm Eastern Time and I see no Wipeout HD Fury expansion and no Killzone 2 map pack which were both supposed to be out today. The PSN store usually updates by an hour ago at the very latest. Anyone know what is going on?


421

+ Dirty_Dave on July 23rd, 2009 at 3:57 pm said:

Oh yeah! 420 baby! Smoke up!


422

+ Maakasukage on July 23rd, 2009 at 4:01 pm said:

Hmm it didn’t update. I’ll go on much l8er then. I guess. I’ll just have to wait.. for the interview lol. Tomarrow……


423

+ Maakasukage on July 23rd, 2009 at 4:33 pm said:

Dirty Dave. I have a feeling for us atleast…If it is released Next week, It will be the 30th. I think it says 31st cause its Hong Kong, probly have differn’t update days. and man I hope PSN updates by the time I get on. Some updates take longer. Be patient people.


424

+ Maakasukage on July 23rd, 2009 at 4:35 pm said:

Also im a where of the Song. But that could just be a frame day. like from 30th to 31st it will be release in diferen’t regions. But Im not getting my hopes up until the actual information is said by Titan. But that also doesn’t mean I don’t fully doubt ur right Dirty Dave.


425

+ Psub_Xero on July 23rd, 2009 at 4:48 pm said:

Why was it delayed and will there be XMB music support? Will gladiate have online support? Will there be moding tools?


426

+ Azure-Edge on July 23rd, 2009 at 5:15 pm said:

I only heard about this game today, (while looking up the information on castle crashers being released on psn lol) and it looks awesome. Finally some quality psn games

Of course everyone is asking about the release date but I was wondering if you could give a rough estimate on the file size of this game and also if there is the possibility of trophy support?


427

+ jayrider101 on July 23rd, 2009 at 9:43 pm said:

hey why does the game not support split-screen??? its perfectly cable of providing a fun (if not better) experience with smaller screens as long as you have your buddies with you!!!

all the top franchises support it! warhawk, halo, CoD, etc…. they all do GREAT!!

but put that aside and im of course wondering

-When!
-When!
-When!
-When!
-When!

-DLC?

Hey Everyone. So people stop getting all up Tight about the Blog PS Eye interview. They are aiming for Monday As quotes (“There will also be a PS Video posted on the PSBlog early next week. We are hoping for Monday..”)

But keep checking just in case they do release it early. Remember their real people with real lives, So either them Deb saying next week was a rough estimate or they had something to do before the Interview. Or it could’ve been Jeff R Who had a delay. But to keep people happy for awhile take a look at this for now.

http://proxoq.com/PSNation/2009/07/23/episode-123-pretty-pretty-princess/

Its a Pod Cast. That they did yesterday, Another reason for delay? They could of been booked, keeping busy busy? Interviews and etc.

@426 Azure Edge. Good question, How much will it take up?, either way the file will be worth the download.


429

+ Maakasukage on July 23rd, 2009 at 10:36 pm said:

So keep asking questions! You still have time!, But try to think of other questions than when is it going to be released, theres already tons of those questions (and hopefully they will answer it). Atleast ask another question if ur going to ask The release date. It’ll make the interview that much more intresting with a wide varity of questions.


430

+ Maakasukage on July 23rd, 2009 at 10:50 pm said:

P.S. For the Pod Cast, All of it is awesome to listen too. But if u want to get straight to the Titan Studios interview (My highlight of the Pod Cast). Skip the Pod Cast to 48:40, 48 minutes and 40 secsonds, and listen from there. You might have to let it load fully before you do this.


431

+ Maakasukage on July 23rd, 2009 at 11:22 pm said:

lol im all by my self XD, But anyways I hope monday comes soon. For the Blog interview!, Its going to be awesome!

New hint on the official account of Fat Princess on Facebook man!

“U.S. patent #6,319,530: “method of photocopying an image onto an edible web for decorating iced baked goods.”

This sentence can be related to this date:
US Patent Issued on November 20, 2001
Estimated Patent Expiration Date: Icon_subject November 18, 2018

…or maybe some kind of special way to customize (maybe importing image). Cake editor…?

Maakasukage, what podcast r u talking about?


434

+ Azigos on July 23rd, 2009 at 11:53 pm said:

Please note that the original patent is “…an image onto a substrate sheet for decorating…”. So, editor or official website incoming? :D


435

+ Maakasukage on July 23rd, 2009 at 11:58 pm said:

Sorry for taking awhile Cman-92, Its a pod cast thats here at PSnation. Its extermely funny and Great ^^. lol go to about 48mins:40seconds in to get straight to the interview. This makes me want to see the interview on here on Monday Extremly Bad XD.

+ Dirty_Dave on July 24th, 2009 at 9:26 am said:

@Maakasukage

Yeah, I bet you are right about the time zone thing. I hope I’m right as well. Next week would be perfect in my book. Then we will have the whole month of August to battle it out for the big beauty! I have a pretty good feeling that I am right on this one and I will be keeping my fingers crossed. Send me a friend request so we can play together when the princess is ready for her debut!

They do tell you when @440, If you view the Podcast, u sarcastic Idiot ;P So don’t think their the idiots when your the actual idiot, lol. In the blog they Deb didn’t say early this week, Deb said “Next Week”, But which then turns out this Monday coming. Which they state in a reply email, and In the Podcast. In the Podcast they metion a HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT ON MONDAY. Meaning its probly going to be said on the interview this MONDAY! Paitence is a Viture. A jug fills drop by Drop, You rush, You risk spilling a drop or even tipping the jug totally.

443

+ Maakasukage on July 24th, 2009 at 11:43 am said:

lol I didn’t look for the pod Cast. I was smart and emailed Titan one step. withing 30mins not a day. Dur. lol im only 17, Play lacrosse have a job and still have time to Do things in my free time. and thank you for admiting it. lol You would’ve just fought a arugment that you would’ve lost in the end, Wise move, Good thing you still in School eh?, lol same here. Oh and if you continue to reply Justin ^^, that’ll make you a hypocrit resulting in even a worse of a loss for you. lol No point argueing on a Blog thats meant for questioning, XD. this blog is getting off track…..

Oh another question. What made you come up with the Idea of all the Humour?

P.S. Can’t wait Titan! The game is going to be awesome.

+ Maakasukage on July 24th, 2009 at 11:49 am said:

I’ll admit my reply was kinda mean. But its just how u are and how ur acting. Its just annoying seeing people that comment on things without knowing even a fact. Like both the release date of Fat Princess and people think there was a major problem. Theres awlays bugs? But there was never a huge problem.

commenting on things, without knowing the facts, is another problem offline in the world also. It happens in Sports and even governments.


446

+ Maakasukage on July 24th, 2009 at 12:01 pm said:

lol before I go and play catch, one more thing. I know I to got off topic. But please people this Blog is for questions. Don’t waste the persons time, who is reviewing it for questions to ask Titan and the rest working on Fat Princess. I asked all I think I wanted to, but there has to be more questions.


447

+ Mitraillix on July 24th, 2009 at 2:21 pm said:

Well, the game was delayed and there was probably good reason for it. Now my questions and wish list about the games. 1/Will there be a map editor? Maybe a random map generator? 2/The game looks quite messy in the heat of action… will it be possible to hide or be stealthy? I’m just concerned strategy will be limited to “run to the princess and bash to your heart’s content” 3/How many game modes will there be?


448

+ Maakasukage on July 24th, 2009 at 7:07 pm said:

@447, There lots more stratgey and depth than what you said. Have you been following it?, Its depends on your what class you are. If u want to be stealthy as far as I know just go around the sides of the map, the main stream fighting will be on the roads since you run faster on them and theres always new stratgeys being formed, Hopefully they’ll talk about Operation Eagle drop and Operation KFC XD. Chris told me they never had a release date, meaning there was never a delay. Rumours get bad sometimes. There might’ve been something small. But not Huge enough to cause the a big delay.

But your question is a good one still, and probly something like that will be asked and answered. lol sorry for replying when you didn’t ask me XD, But you made it so blad sounding when people who played know it isn’t.


449

+ JoeDierte on July 25th, 2009 at 1:59 am said:

i’m sure that you want to keep Fat Princess fresh on our minds. But I’m a little tired of lines such as “We have tons of info to share with you, but we want to take this opportunity to let you all ask the questions”.

Just tell us about your game. Important info like, the release date, will you support your game with dlc within the first year or maybe incentives for other PS3 products such as beta testing available for Qore Subscribers?

Please let us know what’s going on, instead of wasting our time having to ask you questions about your game.

Thanks
