It's old news, but I didn't know about it... a quick search in google for "Littlebigplanet open beta" gives you a few dissapointing results!

It looks like the beta is staying closed, and only opening up to a few more people, probably already on the sony beta trials.. Bad news for most of us..

thte good news is, I could be wrong and/or there could be a demo coming out, maybe late september or early october

I read somewhere that a Demo wasn't coming out aswell ;/

I'm kinda slightly glad there's no Open Beta for us, cause I think I'd be on that constantly, and then I wouldn't be so bothered about buying the actual game.. It kinda gives me that feeling...Hard to explain :(

Shame though.

They tend to shut down beta's once the full game is released.. force you to buy it n'all ;)

as for no demo.. thats bad news!

That's true, but I think I found the words which I was looking for..

"You'll get the whole experience in one go?" Does that make any sense? It does to me :P But I know whats in my head :P

It makes perfect sense, and at the same time, no sense when LittleBigPlanet is the topic. If that makes any sense ;)

It's quite a pity that there won't be a demo, that would help for waiting till the full game

Mm, true. Apparently the UK release is 3rd October, am I right in saying that?

I'm looking forward to the full polished experience.

I've beta tested alot of mmo's and it tarnishes the live experience...:cool:

Well, I checked amazon.co.uk and they don't list a release date. Amazon.com lists a US release of the 21st, although that may be a placeholder.

Yeah, there's apparently Japanese release on the 31st, UK on the 3rd, and US on the 30th? I don't see that happening somehow though :S

It's been cancelled, there's just a private Beta which I think is going on as we speak.

Meh. Could still happen. The article I found is from May. I really thought they mentioned something about it sometime in the summer.

In my opinion, I would just rather have the full game than a limited demo. I mean, its only 2 months away. And if people have waited a decade for Duke Nukem Forever (lol) I'm sure we can wait 2 little months :)

check the answers to the posts on the playstation blog. Post #179 talks about how it will only be a BD release. post #251 says something about a demo and how it will be announced to the blog or maybe I read it wrong and will be given to the people in RAP program.

No, it's not going to be given to the RAP people first, they'll "be the first to know". It sounds like a public demo, actually.
