Media Molecule boss Alex Evans has warned against judging LittleBigPlanet on last night's beta release, saying the distributed version is already out of date.

"Since it’s a beta, it’s already quite an old build," said the developer on the MM blog.

"We have some cool new stuff that’s been in our private test for a few days, I won’t give it all away but there are things cooking such as 5-star ratings, (much) better performance and less lagginess, better online stability, better UI for publishing, faster downloads…. so in a way playing this version is simultaneously exciting and an odd throwback to a couple of weeks ago."

Evans also promised that those of you who went begging for a key last night are going to get a second bite of the cherry - more are on the way.

"Beta keys and their distribution are actually entirely in the hands of Sony," he said. "MM have no control over this, so we can’t help if anyone wants to get on the beta trial, I am certain (100%) there are more keys coming SOON but we’d recommend checking the PlayStation forums and all the usual places for news."
