Hey community!
I'm new here, so hello! :)

In regards to the recent private beta, do you think after it's over that they'll announce a public beta for everyone?
Cheers. <3

This has been discussed in the Beta thread. But as a quick answer. Nobody knows.

Go here for beta conversation.

There could be a public beta somewhere in September or October, if not then you'll be waiting for the next 3 months. But that's okay i'm sure Sumo won't forget about us creators.

It's was already discussed, still we have no confirm info about this topic. So stay tuned! :)

Nobody knows, but I'm kind of thinking (more like hoping) that there will be.

I've never actually paid any attention to this before, because I've never actually missed a beta until now, but I feel like they probably would hide the names of the levels that people are playing if the beta was supposed to stay a private thing.

It just feels weird that there's an NDA, but the names of levels that people are playing are shown on their PSN status. If someone makes something like "Orchestral Music Test," then we'd be able to infer that there are new orchestra instruments. If someone makes "3D Camera Demo," then we'll be able to tell that the game has one of those.

Like I said, I could be completely wrong. I've never actually been on this side of the info-wall before, so this could've just been a normal thing. It just seems like an odd choice.

This thread's probably gonna be merged with the beta thread though.

I seen my friend playing a level called hot stuff and they refuse to tell me what it is... On making a public beta on the other hand doesn't sound good to me lots of those "Not stable" LBP players might get in and only God know what will happen, it's better if they made a public demo.

I guess there'll be an open beta in the beginning of October. Then it will last about a week or two.

The beta has started, but that doesn't mean that all of the invites have been sent out.

Because people have been seen playing it.

Guys, this is talking about the possibility of a public beta AFTER the private beta, which is possible. It would make sense to have it be a month long in September-October. LBPKarting had a 1 month public beta, so it would make sense that this would, too.

If the all beta invites were sent for the CLOSED beta, then there's nothing to worry about unless you want to play the beta ASAP. But if you are patient enough to wait until October or so, there MIGHT be a PUBLIC beta for all of us. I have a feeling that there will be one.

I hope theres an Open beta for Lbp3 1 week before Lbp3 release with that E3 2014/Gamescom Demonstration level and also Create mode with limited materials and tools.

In other words, a demo.

There was a private beta for LBPK? I never knew

Part of me wishes there was and part of me wishes there wasn't. If we could prevent articles being written about how 'broken' the game was then I'm all for it. Until gamers and the media stop taking every opportunity to knock a product based on a Beta then I'm afraid I'd have to favour 'no public beta.'

We need like a 2 day public beta that is sponsored as a type of +1 from people with the private beta (so its like a semi-public beta) like the +3 in the destiny beta

that way we can still stress test the servers, and it won't get enormous amounts of hate, or bad press


win-win, and more of the creator types get to try the beta firsthand!

Just because its open for 2 days doesn't automatically give it a pass to avoid any bad press... And why would you need to test the servers? Doesn't it use the same ones as LBP 1 and 2?

well, the giving it to trustworthy people (like a +1 sort of deal) is what I thought would keep it semi-private, but the servers always need to be tested, we dont need another GTA V incident

I actually have no idea! Maybe PS + users might get a open beta or something

Yeah, possibly. I think the only reason I got into the tail end of the lbp2 beta was because I am a plus member.

Even though this probobly won't contribute at all, there is a petition on a website that wants PS+ members to access the LittleBigPlanet 3 beta. I'm not saying it'll work, but It just might (I'm still not saying it will though).

I've seen the petition, and I think it's selfish. Sumo Digital have a plan for their beta. They shouldn't be forced make their beta available to all PS+ members.

I know they don't, but, it is possible that they will make a public beta for everyone in a few months called the finished product.(hehe, joke)
Really though, don't get your hopes up but there might be a public beta soon (This news is unreliable).

Whoever says there will be a public beta are only speculating. It is possible I will admit but chances of a public beta being made is highly unlikely.

A public beta would be pointless. The game comes out in 2 months, there's not much time left before it releases.

Public betas have happened much closer to release for other games, and rarely do they last more than a week anyway.

The game is coming out in two months? That is really late for a beta. I believe that the beta is ending in a few weeks, or else the game will be delayed as one month before release is too late for disk production. They need to produce disks for the game's release, or else the game will be sold out on release because they have no disks for the game.

If you are giving someone access to a BETA, then it would be private? The amount of people doesn't make it a semi-private BETA. And a lot more people tried to get on all at once with GTA, LBP will have a lot less people, trying to get on at various times.

I think that a public beta will be very good, everybody could find bug/glitches, it's again more sure ! =)

And even if the game coming pretty soon, the important bugs would be repaired !

But...LittleBigPlanet 3 is delayed a week in France ='(

The game is coming out in next month and there is a second wave on board so it unlikely there going to be a public beta...
