Sony’s LittleBigPlanet beta key giveaway’s the talk of the internet this morning, with many sites putting keys up for offer only to be humbled by demand.

Here’s where you should be looking if you haven’t tried the beta already, or at least where you should have been looking last night:

  • 1UP – 500 keys are being given away over the next four days. It’s a simple “answer a questions thing.”
  • The official LBP site – 1,000 were given away overnight, but apparently users posted more than 2,000 posts in an hour and crashed the server.
  • IGN – Keys from the US site were sent out overnight. Check your inbox if you entered its giveaway.
  • GamePro – Tried to give away 1,250 keys last night and promptly fell over. More are being promised for Wednesday.
  • – The site is giving away five codes per day until Wednesday. All you have to do is mail in some answers.
  • Gamespot – Apparently that thread says codes aren’t going to be issued until Wednesday, but we couldn’t find the post. They were suposed to be sent out yesterday. Good luck.
  • Joystiq – The site’s giving away 10 per day. All you have to do is comment.
