Sign Up For The LittleBigPlanet Water Beta Test

LittleBigPlanet is one of the most innovative titles of the generation thus far, and the guys at Media Molecule aren't about to sit back and bask in the glow of their accomplishments. Why do that when you can continue to innovate?

You can do a great many things in LBP and the upcoming Game of the Year Edition will allow newcomers to experience $30 worth of extra downloadable content (and that's hardly everything that's available on the PlayStation Store). But what is this game still missing...? That's right: water. If you're a fan of SackBoy and Co., head on over and sign up for a position in the LittleBigPlanet Water beta test. There's a video there for you to watch and as you can see, we'll be swimming, piloting boats around, and in general, just having a grand ol' time splashing around in all-new environments. If you really think about it, the water-based possibilities are almost endless, and we can only imagine how far Media Molecule can go with this new idea. To be considered for a spot in the beta, just give them your e-mail address and PSN ID, and hopefully, you'll get all wet with other testers when the time comes. We'll be on the lookout for release details concerning this new kit; it might be available for a late holiday purchase.

Who needs a sequel to LBP? They can just keep building on that foundation for a very, very long time.

Dayyum... I guess you can pack pretty much anything into DLC these days. Good on MediaMolecule for adding this. Can't wait to try this mother out.

I wonder how big this update will be, I mean if it is too big then I may just buy the GOTY one. With my old one, I may just give it to a pal.

its a fantastic looking title, but i got bored of the gameplay rather quickly. Maybe its just me and getting bored of games eventually. LBP then Ultra Bomberman, now I'm addicted to Fat Princess...

I'm in the same boat man. I still play it occasionally but after making a few levels that took me weeks to complete, I just got tired of it. Nobody really plays my levels anyways :P I am however excited about this addition.

Awesome. Just signed up and hope that we get picked. Between the kids and myself, they'd get hours and hours of testing a day. As was asked earlier, and I did notice that in the video, what else is going to be in that kit? Any clues?

For some reason i got this game thinking it was going to be awesome but i hated it. I traded it for Call Of Duty: World at War. Hopefully the PSP version will be easy to play and not complicated.

So pleased to see MM's intentions are to keep adding to LBP rather than cashing in on LBP2. The paintinator already added a lot to the game, and water definitely would. Other developers might be tempted to save such ideas for a sequel.

This way the community stays big, and that's the most important thing for me. I trade about 80% of my games but wouldn't consider trading LBP because I can play different community levels every day.

The trailer put a huge smile on my face, something this game is somehow able to do to me on a consistent basis. I'm very much looking forward to this feature and to the slew of fantastically entertaining levels sure to pop up almost overnight.

Pirates vs Ninjas... on water bitches! lol
