Online Beta Codes For LBP Sent Out

It's always interesting when you receive voucher codes for unknown beta tests. It's just a little frustrating when you can't yet use the code...

We've been told by several readers that Sony has sent out some LittleBigPlanet beta vouchers to certain people; the only problem is, we have no idea what beta test they're talking about, and it certainly isn't active just yet. It's an "open invitation" but the e-mail isn't really all that specific; all it does is outline what a beta test is, and how they want to "tweak" the online gameplay. Now, this could just be for random online activity with LBP; i.e., there's no separate beta test for a new feature - like the one for Water - but that would be pretty boring. Anyway, the message reads:

"Welcome! You've been selected to participate in our ongoing LittleBigPlanet online beta. We're always striving to improve our online experience--and whether it's tweaks in gameplay, functionality or server adjustments, we need your help in making sure everything looks and plays just right. Included is your beta code to provide you access to our online beta. Thanks again."

It's an "ongoing beta" so perhaps the entire online mode is always in some sort of permanent test position (which would sort of make sense). But as we all know, Media Molecule continually looks for ways to expand and enhance the LBP universe, and we're wondering if this not-yet-active beta has something to do with a big new feature or multiple features. Guess we'll just have to wait until they clarify or until the code goes active...

You're right. It wold be boring. And since Media Molecule is anything BUT boring, this has got to be for something very cool.

Maybe they're going to include lava? What? I can dream.

It would be nice if when we went online we had a choice of whether we want to be the host and invite instead of join.

now THAT is an excellent idea. what an expansion that would be, like a whole other planet (or several smaller planets). it would expand the game, but there woulnd't be need for a LBP2. YAY!

I got the invite and I was wondering if it was for the water feature they were talking about last summer. It made think though, it's been a while since I've played LBP. I think it's about time I dusted it off again.

I got one. Glad to see that it's not just me that had no idea what it was for, or can't use it, yet. I'm guessing it's for the "Turbo!" pack they are talking about on the blog. Thanks, Ben.

I want one :*(

Why does MediaMolecule hate me so much?
I play the living daylights out of this game when I can.

Heck, I was even in the LBP pre-launch beta

Oh well, can't wait to see what it is

I got one, but did anyone else notice if you scroll down a bit in the email, it has the link to the PSP playstation page? I'm thinking this is going to be for the LBP on PSP

my psp broke when i lent it to a friend and he tried to hack it. So if it does come out for the psp i might not get it for a while until i buy a PSP Go

I saw that too, but I don't have a PSP, and Sony has the products I own in my PSN profile. So why would they send me one? also the special beta vest I got with it was for the PS3 version.

So to all of you that got a code, do you subscribe to Qore?

I wonder if they sent those out early by accident.

hmmmmmm interesting i love little big planet only because its the closest thing to a 2D platformer were ever going to get on the ps3!
oh, what i would give to have some proper 2D platformers for the ps3, even if there on PSN.
that would be the perfect genre for the minis!

they meant to just send out Vests was the thing! I found out about the error via the LBP forums, one of the developers answered a thread on it saying it was an Error, and they only meant to send out Vests to people that were previously in Betas.
