LBP2 Beta Invites Going Out This Week

LittleBigPlanet 2 is going to be one of this holiday season's hottest titles, and if you want in early, check your inbox this week.

Media Molecule needs some help testing the game, so they'll be running a beta test very soon. They'll be sending out invitations this week and those who get priority will be the ones who loved the first title. That's right, according to the update, you have a better chance of seeing an LBP2 beta invite if you've "been really active in LittleBigPlanet." Just bear in mind they've already picked the lucky gamers; they only need to send out the invites, so jumping into LBP now and playing like mad won't do you any good. If you are selected, you have to be 18 years of age or older, have your PS3 hooked up to a broadband Internet connection, and be able to speak English. Also, they say "current Beta Test Community and existing LittleBigPlanet beta testers will automatically be included in this beta trail." Lucky devils. Of course, we'll probably drop in at some point to check things out; Media Molecule continues to take steps in creativity and innovation that boggle the mind.

Millions of user-created levels emerged from the first game - and more are being made every day - so one can only imagine what gamers will make with the sequel.

Thats actually a really smart way to do it as it should lead to better feedback.

I'm still loving the first title, so the second one will be a masterpiece, I'm sure. :)

On a different note, I just purchased all the Marvel stuff for LBP (4 costume packs, 1 level kit), as well as the Monster costumes, Shadow of the Colossus costumes and the God of War level kit.

:)

I've purchased damn near every add on for the first LBP. Every single level pack and a majority of all the costume packs. I can't help it. Every pack just adds endless ways of using bits of different costumes together.

Damn, not 18 yet, only 10 days left in my 17th year though.
Anyways, looking forward to November.

I have LBP2 collectors edition on pre-order. I can't wait. I hope I land in the beta although I haven't been really active lately. Just a few plays here and there. I got a beta invite for the original 3 days before the beta was over. Man I love LBP, it was even my first Platinum trophy.

FFXIII for me, followed by MW2, Modnation, and Asassins Creed 2.

Now if THAT isn't variety... what is?!

I hope they get a lot of people with low internet ping, so they can figure out a way to get rid of the lag for all players.Specially when your the one with good modem and you get a crappy person lagging up the room(I.E. see Mag)

That was a huge problem in the original LBP. Online mp was very difficult or impossible at first with somebody that had a horrible connection.

We've been playing this game almost daily since release. I hope one of us gets in on the beta.

alright, if i dont get an invite to this and killzone 3 then i'll definitely pass on renewing my plus subscription. This is a sony product and if i remember right, they clearly stated that plus users get priority beta access.

I probably won't get an invite but man I can't wait for this game.

If I do though I'll make sure to create a level or 2.

I hope this game actually allows you to choose whether you want to "Host or Join" a random level...I hated joining other people with bad connections in the first one.
Other than that problem, I believe that this game will be awesome...I'm only getting the Collectors edition because of the two "Jak and Daxter" Costumes.

It was a surprise to me that they would bring up J&D, I mean...that series has been silent for a while (I didn't count The Lost Frontier as a real J&D game because Naughty Dog didn't make it)

I can always rely on sony to promise something, than once i pay for it they take it away!

Wait so that means if you were apart of the original LBP beta, you're likely to get invited to this beta, too?
