LBP alert: LittleBigPlanet Beta Coming This month September 2008. ............Do not know how it would work but I would guess it will be on how much you have used PSN, as simple as downloading a LBP theme, who knows but according to a poster at,"A beta test takes place in order to test aspects of a game that cannot be checked using internal testing and QA staff. This is usually because of the number of people required to adequately test the game is far beyond the size of internal test departments. Often these tests are looking to ensure that balance, stability and various online functionality is working as planned, being conducted with enough time to make changes should the test indicate that work needs to be done."

Most Important: "There will be a limited public beta test for LittleBigPlanet in September. If it will be possible to "sign up" for this test, full information on how to do so will be made public in advance of the test. Similarly if the test is going to be conducted in an invitation-only we will let you know ahead of time"

The more I see this game in action the more I get excited. Its seems that LBP could have endless possibilities, its almost like virtual HD playdough. It would be extremely interesting to see what type of industry LittleBigPlanet can create.

One thing I do admire about Sony is their ability to create new industries and genres relating to gaming. Even thought custom level building is not new to gaming(been around forever with PC) it is about to be release to the masses with more sex appeal.

Thanks for the heads up on the beta. I'm kind of surprised they're doing one, especially so close to the actual release date... but I'm sure most of the bugs are already known and fixed. I hope it will be easy to get into the beta...

NanoGeek, I'm sure you already have a PS3 but there are probably some readers out there that have yet to get one. For those of you that are still looking for one, I suggest you take a look at this Stacker 2 contest going on where you can win one by designing a 6 Hour Power t-shirt. There are less than 275 entrants as of now, and it's surprisingly easy to design the shirt online. Check out the contest details here:

By the way NanoGeek, I hope you don't mind me commenting on your post. I work with 6 Hour Power so let me know if you have any questions or if you guys enter... I'd be happy to vote for your designs. Good luck to everyone entering.
