LBP2 Details from LiquidRunner:

"Listen up LittleBigPlanet™ fans,


We've got some pretty exciting news for you!


We need some help testing out LittleBigPlanet 2, and we have selected some of you to come along and join in the fun. If you have been selected, for a few weeks you'll be able to Play, Create and Share yourself silly in our greatest handmade adventure to date – all before anyone else sees it!


How do I know if I have been selected for this beta?

We will be sending out invitations to the LittleBigPlanet 2 beta during this week to users who’ve been really active in LittleBigPlanet (PS3™).  So if you have been a busy Sackboy™ or girl then an invite might be coming your way. This decision has now been made; unfortunately we are not able to recruit any further Beta Testers at present.

(Please note that e-mails have not yet been sent. This text will change when they have)


If you don’t want to join in, you can ignore the invite.  If you do want to join in, the invite will contain all the information you need to get started as well as the Beta Trial Terms and Conditions.


A few points to be aware of:

  • To take part in the beta you must be 18 years old or over and be a resident in a country in which we operate a PlayStation®Store.  See for full details. 
  • You will also need a PlayStation®3 or PlayStation®Portable (PSP) with a broadband internet connection and a PlayStation®Network master account.
  • The beta will be conducted in English only so you need to be able to provide your feedback in English.
  • Our current Beta Test Community and our existing LittleBigPlanet beta testers will automatically be included in this beta trial.  Please note that being selected for this beta trial does not give you access to other beta trials we may operate.
  • Participation in our beta trials is subject to our Beta Trial.  By accepting our invitation to join, you will be accepting the terms of this agreement so please read it carefully. These will be included in the invitation e-mails.


What if I’m not chosen?

If you’re not lucky this time, you can still find out more about LittleBigPlanet 2.  Why not check out the official site:

So stay tuned and remember to check your inbox.
