Sony Releases New LBP Beta Version
Okay, so let's say you've already had some time to toy around with the LittleBigPlanet beta, and you've created more than a few high-quality levels. You're proud of those creations, aren't ya? Well, get ready to lose 'em and start over, because this next time...it's for real.
According to the official PlayStation blog, not only are they handing out more beta codes (try to snag one if you haven't already), they also revealed that a new version of the beta has officially arrived. This new version doesn't require a DNS redirect and all levels that are generated will be available to consumers at the time of the game's retail launch. This means that if you've already redeemed your beta voucher key, you'll have to delete the old data - yep, that includes save game data - and download the new version. All you have to do is head on over to Download History and re-download the new code, and you'll be good to go. Hopefully, you didn't spend too many hours developing your genius levels; the majority of you probably haven't had enough time, so this won't bother you. And think of it this way- now that you know, you can really dive into the customization process and create levels worthy of the rest of the PlayStation community!
We'll keep you updated with anything LBP-related, especially if it's something as important as this new version release. Oh, and if you haven't yet scored a beta code, there are plenty of sites all over the Internet that still have a few left. You might want to check Eurogamer, GameSpot, and the aforementioned PlayStation blog. Good luck!
