Who will make this? (true console quality game)

I am not really a hardcore gamer (hardcore enough to be on TA, though). I don't own a console, but a few days ago I watched LBP and Uncharted 2 videos, and they blew me away.
I thought that the iPhone and it's games are really cool, but, especially LBP looks sooooooo cool. But Sony is the publisher, so it will never be o the iPhone. Gameloft might make a rip-off, but personally their only game that I enjoy(ed) is Avatar, and I tried almost all.

Who will make a real console level game?

There have been many very good attempts, I must say, but after this video, they seem so dull. I think that the hardware is good enough. I can imagine ngmoco trying, but maybe the indies can do it. I would love to see LBP on iPhone. Illusion labs could make this too, graphics from Sway+Labyrinth 2 level editor and multiplayer+super ultra polish (standard)=Console quality game I would pay at least 10 euros for. Maybe 20.

What do you think?

Thanks for the praise

LBP was actually a pretty big inspiration when it came to the level editor and being able to share your levels easily and play and rate other people's levels as well.

L2 was def our biggest game yet, it took about 9 months for 1-5 of us to do. I guess many think of it as a simple little game, but the editor, the server and community aspects of it, and the dynamic nature of the game make it quite complex. Having said that, I think our next game is going to be a little smaller, sort of a little break. But after that, who knows?!

Those big games you mention take many years to do and with much greater budgets that we can only dream of (we are talking millions and millions of dollars here). I guess Naughty Dog has around 200 employees or so. Gameloft has 4000. So we are quite small by comparison.

Even the console versions of those games barely qualify as console-quality games

I'd say we have one with NOVA. It feels so much like Metroid Prime 3: Corruption (which is an awesome game).

If you weren't looking for levels and a campaign, I'd say COD: Zombies since it is an actual console game and it feels just like the 360/PS3/PC version.

Wait a sec... What about Driver? It IS a console game. And an awesome one at that.
