The “wisdom of crowds” says that the many are smarter than the few – but can they be better at gaming too? That’s what our French team set out to discover when they built a crowd (and cloud)-controlled robot that will play LittleBigPlanetTM 3 remotely… in every sense of the word.
But there’s a catch, the robot analyses all of the commands sent to it, so players will have to pull together to successfully navigate the new (and even some custom designed exclusive) levels.
For the real pros, or just those who want to cause a bit of havoc, players can even get involved on Twitter using #RemoteCTRL, and either #Xperia or #PlayStation to pick a team – and simply tweet #up, #down, #left and #right to control the characters.
*Functionality available on Sony Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact, Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablet. PlayStation®4 System, DUALSHOCK®4, Sony Entertainment Network account and high speed internet connection required. Some games may not support this feature.
