LBP2: US to get chance at beta in “a few weeks”

By Stephany Nunneley, Friday, 10 September 2010 20:42 GMT


Sony has said those in the US will be able to participate in the LittleBigPlanet 2 beta “in a few weeks”.

Earlier this week, Sony posted on the community forums those “who’ve been really active in LittleBigPlanet” will be the first to get invites, and according to today’s post on the US PS Blog the first set of invites when out to Europe only.

“Globally, we’re taking steps to best test our server environment, so we’re distributing beta codes in phases,” said Sony. “The first phase of testing started earlier this week with our European LBP community.

“In a few weeks, we’ll be growing the participant base with US and other countries. More news to come.”

In the meantime, to keep you up to speed on all the new nuggets in LBP2, Sony’s introducing a series of LittleBigPlanet 2 Featurettes highlighting some of the new features.

The first entry in the series focused on the new Grappling Hook, which we posted for you here.

So, the long and short of it is: don’t despair. You’ll get your chance at the beta soon if you’re lucky.
