Sony announces more sites for LittleBigPlanet beta keys

Alan Tsang

[Update 1 -- IGN is beginning their giveaway. They have a "few thousand codes" and all you have to do is send an e-mail over to Make sure your subject is "LBP Beta Code" and send them your idea for a LBP level. It doesn't have to be long, as long as you show you are "interested in creating something." It's a first-come-first served type of deal, so get to it ASAP! Thanks, freebluespike!]

Some of you were lucky enough to have your LittleBigPlanet beta keys and are enjoying some fun with Sackboy right now (*ahem* Andrew *ahem*), but others aren't so lucky. Fortunately, the guys over at PlayStation.Blog just complied a list of where you will find LittleBigPlanet beta keys in the "the next few days." They have listed IGN, 1UP, Gametrailers and the official LBP news site but no additional information was provided. Needless to say, we'll update you guys as soon as more information leaks out. G4 has release partial details for their beta key giveaway; tune in to their X-Play show at 8PM on Tuesday, September 30th for a chance to win one of their 2,000 beta keys.

PS.Blog also provided instructions on how to install the beta if you managed to obtain a voucher, so check that out after the jump.

Please note the following instructions below which will help you install the Public Beta voucher:

1) Public Beta Ends October 11th, 2008

2) You must use a consumer PLAYSTATION® 3 system that is connected to the internet.

3) You must have a PLAYSTATION®Network Account.

4) If you have previously redeemed a LBP voucher code, you must delete any old LBP data (along with save data and game data) and download this version (go to Download History and redownload the new code).

5) This version does not require a DNS redirect and levels created here will be available for consumers at launch of the full title.

6) Please refrain from creating anything inappropriate, as we do have moderation in place and it may result in your account being suspended or banned.
