Now that the NDA is over, I assume we can find this out...

So, can PS3 and Ps4 players play together?

Also, does the beta support importing stuff from the previous games, and if so, how does it handle when importing to the PS4 versions?

I didn't see any option for ps3 and ps4 to play together. Importing is there but was locked in the beta version.

Ah, I see. Fair enough for the importing. Guessing you'd need to go to LBP2 or LBP3 on PS3, back up your account onto Sony's servers, then redownload it via the PS4 import button.

Odd that you can't play together though... Did they segregate the levels?

I couldn't see any markings differentiating ps3 & 4 levels so I assume they were all in the same list.

All levels are playable between the 2 versions (I checked earlier today to be sure) but there is no cross-play of any kind. I really hope there's cross-play in the full game, or at the very least cross-buy. I don't wanna be forced to pick between my friends. The game is $70, dang it. I mean, I will fork over the extra money if I have to, but I'll have a slight frown on my face the whole time.

The PS3 version lets you import your LBP1 profile (LBP2 profiles will definitely work in the full game though), but it's disabled on the PS4.

There's a workaround to get old materials and everything by importing a level in to the PS3 beta, then publishing it and copying it to the PS4 version, but that's all there is right now.
