LBP2 Testers Recognise Superiority Of PC

As we know, all console owners secretly wish their machines were PCs. They don't like to admit it, hiding behind lies like, "It's great to have a machine where I don't need to worry about updating drivers," or, "But I want to play games on my comfortable couch." But deep down, secretly, they desperately wish they had to worry about replacing heatsinks and virus blockers. This is only too easily proven by the video below, in which a group of PS3 users on the Little Big Planet 2 beta have painstakingly recreated Windows XP within the game.

It really is quite something. There's rather a lot of detail here. Right down to error messages and a BSOD.

While LBP2 is being used by many to build their own shareable videogames, but this lot went a little further. It contains games. It's an operating system. The operating system of the one true gaming platform.

They want to be us.
