mxk1000 9 May, 2012 @ 2:05 pm   2

Now we are talking.

smallgaffer 9 May, 2012 @ 2:06 pm   3

@1 click the link again.

Also can’t wait to see how LBP turns out on Vita πŸ˜€

Sasukekun 9 May, 2012 @ 2:08 pm   4

Ahh, reading fail………..

Unicronic 9 May, 2012 @ 2:09 pm   5

WHAT! A game for Vita!!! It can’t be.

I’m all over this like white on rice.

GhostViper 9 May, 2012 @ 2:11 pm   6

Looking forward to this. Hope I get in to the beta.
Tested LBP in London at det Vita event. It was great. But one level is not enough to satisfy me πŸ˜›

Unicronic 9 May, 2012 @ 2:13 pm   7

Ugh, page keeps crashing after submitting the questions.

Alex-1124 9 May, 2012 @ 2:16 pm   8

Traffic jam on the URL M4 haha

mxk1000 9 May, 2012 @ 2:21 pm   9

Little Big Excited now. How soon is soon?

almighty-slayer 9 May, 2012 @ 2:21 pm   10

I think we broke it

almighty-slayer 9 May, 2012 @ 2:21 pm   11

Ah typical – working now

mdogg91 9 May, 2012 @ 2:22 pm   12

I went on the playstation twitter feed link and the layout was slightly different to this one. So I take it ive signed up to both regions :S

Dark-Twisted 9 May, 2012 @ 2:23 pm   13

Been interested in this since it was announced, huge fan of LBP and put 26 active hours into my LBP2 one (which unfortunately only got like four plays).

I’d be signing upto this in a heartbeat but I can’t afford a Vita. Anymore Vita competitions please? πŸ™ Also someone should suggest to Ross LBP2 as game of the month for Plus. I had to borrow it– again financial woes.

Rico3k 9 May, 2012 @ 2:24 pm   14

Link seems fixed now, just signed up πŸ˜€

courtz07 9 May, 2012 @ 2:26 pm   15

I’ve signed up too! Hope I’m successful….

jakster123x 9 May, 2012 @ 2:26 pm   16

Yes, yes! Let me in! πŸ˜€

tarinus 9 May, 2012 @ 2:26 pm   17

Signed up. I hope I get in!

CarBoyCam 9 May, 2012 @ 2:27 pm   18

Enrolled! πŸ˜€

I think Sony should do more of these multi-paste enrolments! It means only people who are willing to put in effort get the chance to sign up! πŸ˜›

strangeplaice 9 May, 2012 @ 2:28 pm   19

That’s myself enrolled. I’m guessing that the extra bit is to get around the usual restriction on the beta website? πŸ˜›

Carl-G 9 May, 2012 @ 2:28 pm   20

I can’t wait to see what LBP:Vita is like πŸ˜› (not got a Vita yet tho) πŸ™

    Simon Rosenkotter 9 May, 2012 @ 2:36 pm    

    Now seems like a good time to buy one then! πŸ™‚

DarkRedError 9 May, 2012 @ 2:29 pm   21

I’ve just signed up. I followed the instructions on the blog post & had no problems.
I just hope I get chosen! πŸ™‚

andy08ps 9 May, 2012 @ 2:33 pm   22

I loved lbp ( and now Entered it)
hopefully we all know soon if we are successful or not πŸ™‚

strangeplaice 9 May, 2012 @ 2:33 pm   23

@20 It was great when I tried it at the Vita rooms! I reckon it’ll have come on a lot since then though! πŸ™‚

thefont 9 May, 2012 @ 2:37 pm   24

Signed In, I hope I can join beta, I really loved LBP1 & 2 (both platinum and lot of levels made)

Sackboy is coming back!!!

SuperJag86 9 May, 2012 @ 2:37 pm   25

Brilliant news, does this mean we’re likely to see the final game this year?

kivi95 9 May, 2012 @ 2:38 pm   26


A bit noob and don’t know what URL is…

VictorAnalogy 9 May, 2012 @ 2:39 pm   27

Your backend stability is bad and you should feel bad!!!

SuperJag86 9 May, 2012 @ 2:41 pm   28

If you don’t know what a URL is, the beta might not be for you!

But I’m in a helpful mood so here,

Hope that helps πŸ˜›

kivi95 9 May, 2012 @ 2:41 pm   29

Okey now i almost made it but after I submited the questions I get the ” Website is not available”.

kivi95 9 May, 2012 @ 2:43 pm   30

28# Computers is not my thing but I know my gaming πŸ˜€ (and building)

And that link just made it worse :P. But I guess URL is the web adress.

Phoenixfire90 9 May, 2012 @ 2:43 pm   31

Just signed up, really hope I’m chosen as well and I hope the fact that I got platinum in LBP and was in the LBP2 beta before the plus members were, plays in my favour.
Also hope they do more betas for games on the vita!!

kivi95 9 May, 2012 @ 2:47 pm   32

Why is the american so much easier to sign up to?

Allen_46 9 May, 2012 @ 2:50 pm   33

yes the website won’t work for me to. got it on my mobile tho

fazleycatta 9 May, 2012 @ 2:50 pm   34

Site not repsonding or page not displayed errors. Total failure!

fazleycatta 9 May, 2012 @ 2:51 pm   35

And then it suddenly worked! Signed up – cheers!

Allen_46 9 May, 2012 @ 2:53 pm   36

yes working now

kivi95 9 May, 2012 @ 2:53 pm   37

Finally worked!!

Tuffcub 9 May, 2012 @ 2:57 pm   38

Can you confirm that only residents of AE, AU, GB, IE, NZ can sign up? No LBP love for the French, Germans or Spainish?

Deaf_Raiders 9 May, 2012 @ 2:58 pm   39

If we are already in the original Beta team from day one(which I am). We don’t have to sign up for this do we? We are automatically entered registered to the list?

    Steven Isbell 9 May, 2012 @ 4:06 pm    

    This is a brand new beta test for an entirely new LittleBigPlanet game!

    So even if you were in a previous LittleBigPlanet beta test, you will need to sign up for this one to be in with a chance of being selected.


“What is a URL?”


Retro_1973 9 May, 2012 @ 2:58 pm   41

Come on guys, couldn’t you have made it a bit more complicated to sign up? Got there in the end but really??????? lol

DeltaCactuar 9 May, 2012 @ 2:59 pm   42

I hope I get in, I have both LBPs on PS3 and the PSP one. Made a bunch of levels on LBP2, but never published ’em, for some reason. :/ LBP Vita would probably change that, because, well, Vita is portable and PS3 isn’t. xP

bravo9zero 9 May, 2012 @ 3:01 pm   43

Site not loading, probably a few US peeps trying to sign up! πŸ˜‰
Thanks for sharing this with us!

ZOMBIE-REAPA 9 May, 2012 @ 3:03 pm   44

youdontknow123 9 May, 2012 @ 3:05 pm   47

Yay! Signed up! Hoorah! Can’t wait, LBP Vita look’s really awesome, what i want to know is, will all our DLC from LBP 1 and 2 be useable?

ChameleonVector 9 May, 2012 @ 3:09 pm   48

Can’t wait, and hope I get to part take. Love the LBP series <3

bidbaldwolf86 9 May, 2012 @ 3:13 pm   49

I’m all signed up. Really looking forward to LBP on my Vita and I’m hoping that I’m successful with the Beta. Nice one!

k1llabeastie 9 May, 2012 @ 3:14 pm   50

Awesome! I hope I’ll be able to take part. Thanks for this oppurtunity!

Phantom_Blaze 9 May, 2012 @ 3:16 pm   51

How long is this open for and when do we find out whether we have been entered? Just wondering when we will know whether we have been given the opportunity, i’m really excited!

klaabu320 9 May, 2012 @ 3:20 pm   52

I wonder if my one got sumbitted.The site was slow and then came connetion error.You have already submitted this form but i got this messages seems i got sumbitted that form πŸ˜€

somethingatt 9 May, 2012 @ 3:20 pm   53

Wow, bit of ugly web coding going on here : ) But got the from submitted. Looking forward to it.

Cpt_Yanni 9 May, 2012 @ 3:50 pm   54

I hope that I’m included… Got LBP 1, 2 and PSP, made levels on it. So it’s about time that I can test it on my Vita that I bought for THIS particular game! (and the upcoming Assassin’s Creed-title for Vita ^^)

prycestation3 9 May, 2012 @ 3:54 pm   55

I’m raging the site isn’t working iv put it in several times now and getting ‘this webpage is not available’

ShadowDoGGG 9 May, 2012 @ 3:55 pm   56

*Trophy Unlocked*

Slowest website award πŸ˜€

millgate1 9 May, 2012 @ 3:57 pm   57

Signed up! Hope I get in, loved LBP1 and 2! PSP version was great as well, but an LBP without multiplayer is like a ham sandwich without the ham.

xCHeF- 9 May, 2012 @ 3:57 pm   58

It keeps saying ‘Your permissions do not allow you access to this section.’ i keep reloading the site still not working

Chunker76 9 May, 2012 @ 3:59 pm   59

Wow, what a run around, finally managed to register, lets hope it was worth it. Am a little put out that there isn’t a great deal on offer for the Vita, I am loving the little portable, but am disappointed with the lack of demo’s and games available here in UK, the store has only had a couple of new demos and games added since day one, please can we get more

xCHeF- 9 May, 2012 @ 4:01 pm   60

Nvm my bad

prycestation3 9 May, 2012 @ 4:01 pm   61

my bad got it now but it was annoying.

Dante_Zero 9 May, 2012 @ 4:14 pm   62

i have feedback for you already.

1. Reopen GAP member applications so new people can apply. There have been a number of beta’s people have missed out on already including Sound shapes on psvita and DUST514. The whole beta process just seems very unorganized and unfair.

2. Simplify process, if you have ps plus and a vita you should be automatically in.

thats it for the moment

Simon Rosenkotter 9 May, 2012 @ 4:28 pm   63

Hi all!

It’s really good to see that you are all so excited for the game. Everyone here at Tarsier is looking forward to see what amazing things you will create in the beta!


PS: Feel free to follow me (@Syroc_LBP) and Tarsier Studios (@TarsierStudios) on Twitter! πŸ™‚

postalsam 9 May, 2012 @ 4:43 pm   64

Signed up, wanted to be part of the LBP2 beta but had no idea how to sign up, at least this 1 I have a chance

balticurry2 9 May, 2012 @ 4:49 pm   65

Wahoo! Hopefully I’ll get in!

LBP and LBP 2 were great fun, but personally I loved playing it on my PSP out and about. Must’ve poured hours into the PSP version, so would love to try the Vita one!

zinG-walker 9 May, 2012 @ 4:56 pm   66

I am really, really, really excited to play this game! It was the main reason I bought the vita.

BlueTigerCub 9 May, 2012 @ 4:59 pm   67

I love LBP and LBP2! Hope that I get picked for the beta and that there are some cool freebies (costumes etc) for taking part!


Tecnoboy1 9 May, 2012 @ 5:01 pm   68

Gee, am I thankful I didn’t pester you Sy. πŸ˜›

Not that it even crossed my mind, WipEout is so much more entertaining. πŸ˜‰

DAVIE222 9 May, 2012 @ 5:21 pm   69

I’m getting a ps vita on junt 8th. Hope I won’t be late

Slenix 9 May, 2012 @ 5:31 pm   70

Something tells me LittleBigPlanet Vita will be coming out soon. One of the questions asks “Do you own a PS Vita?” and the last answer is “No – But I plan on purchasing one in the next three months.” Kind of specific there, don’t you think? πŸ˜€

bonna97 9 May, 2012 @ 5:38 pm   71

Hope I get successful with this BETA because this game is one of the reasons i bought the ps vita πŸ˜€ althrought i`ve been in the LBP2 BETA, and that was FANTASTIC I can say. So if I get to be one of the chosen ones that are allowed to take part in this awsome community I would gladly jump for joy! πŸ˜€

manutreble 9 May, 2012 @ 5:51 pm   72

help it well not let me sign up for the beta

djMister-T 9 May, 2012 @ 6:06 pm   73

It pays to READ what is in the rules before posting bewildered questions
In the words of holy Kratos in GoW2 whom needs the priest in the temple of the fates to comply for their sacrificial blood: “READ IT”.
Now,when I go thru that link, I don’t have permission according to that link… πŸ˜›

procion 9 May, 2012 @ 6:45 pm   77

the ps browesr is useless. On trying that link with it it has frozen up my system twice. I’m sitting thru a lengthy file restoration as we speak. WHOM EVER THE IDIOT WAS THAT DECIDED 256mbs OF RAM WOULD SUFFICE FOR A SMOOTHLY RUNNING SYSTEM BETTER NOT HAVE ANY DECISION MAKING POWERS WITH THE PS4. FOUR GBs of RAM minimum on the next system Sony. Then we wont have cuff ups like Skyrim freezing up will we.PS3 It only does EVERYTHING, as long as it is ONLY the ONE thing everytime πŸ™

KIRA7599 9 May, 2012 @ 6:50 pm   78

I cnt w8 til LBP comes out on the Vita, tht would b a gm 2 play… I already luv LBP az it iz, but 4 it 2 b on the vita, ill luv it even more, lol

THE-PLASTICA-MAN 9 May, 2012 @ 7:04 pm   79

LittleBigPlanet is one of the best franchises I love. Last year, I totally missed the PSP opus from the PSN recovery plan. Now I even pre-purchased a PS Vita just for this game, thinking it will be a launch title. I was very disappointed and sad to know that it will release much much later. I will surely buy it day one, but till then I hope Sony won’t fail me and I will at least play the beta.

Tijder 9 May, 2012 @ 8:32 pm   80

How many people can get a beta code? When will the codes be send?

DirectJunk 9 May, 2012 @ 8:42 pm   81

I have entered! When can I expect to find a key in my inbox? If I get opportunity to take part in the beta that is… πŸ™‚

LightmanOne 9 May, 2012 @ 9:08 pm   82

I like this very much! I hope I can enter in this Bèta test, to see what kind of nice features this game will offer. Hope to get in!

Busterofwar 9 May, 2012 @ 9:49 pm   83

I’ll be checking my emails constantly over the next few days! I can’t wait to play this!

snow_hawk_88 9 May, 2012 @ 10:27 pm   84

Enrolled to it but when it comes to me and Betas SCEE flat out refuse to make a beta tester.

Kira-Law 10 May, 2012 @ 12:09 am   85

Really hope i get in, i love lbp, and the vita version was the main reason i got my vita haha (that and gravity rush… gravuty rush dlc on lbp ^.~) jk jk, finger crossed though^.^v

rturner23 10 May, 2012 @ 9:28 am   86

I do have a question; If we put ‘likely to buy in the next 3 months’ are we at any disadvantage? Because It’s more like in the next 3 days for me. I just hope that people who put that won’t get a look in.

rturner23 10 May, 2012 @ 9:28 am   87

Or should I say will get a look in :P.


Need more stuff like this on the Vita!

Awesome guys, hope I get selected πŸ™‚

Phala1234 10 May, 2012 @ 2:21 pm   89

I never really got into LBP on PS3 because it didn’t really fit they style of playing on a TV that much. But LBP on a portable is just amazing. Had lots of fun with LBP on PSP. Since I don’t have LPB 2 on PS3. The PS VITA version is just perfect for me to get πŸ™‚

dark_shinobi100 10 May, 2012 @ 7:20 pm   90

i have mixed feelings about this

Firstly because I bought the vita thinking this would be a launch title but that was not confirmed

And this looks like it will be great the creation mode seems to have been inspired by the move version but instead of using the move you will use your finger

I have already signed up and will be awaiting the results

But before I end this may I ask why you are not overseeing the production of lbpkarting
Why are you not helping to make it reach the same greats as lbp1 & lbp2

RatchetBoy10 10 May, 2012 @ 10:02 pm   91

Yay! I got a ps vita for this game only. So i can not wait till the beta starts! I hope i get selected! πŸ˜›

Also have you noticed that this is the only blog post in a long time that has just recived 99.99% good news? It’s amazing!

xX-APROXX-Xx 11 May, 2012 @ 5:36 pm   92

quick question, when I signed up one of the questions was which LBP games do you own?? I answered all of them because I own all of them but one of them is on a different account. I was just wondering if u were doing a cross check to see if people are lying and will penalise there chances and if you do own some will that influence your decision or is it completely random?? please answer back thanks πŸ™‚

LogicalMushroom 11 May, 2012 @ 8:43 pm   93

Do you need PS Plus for this? I Hope not. Im SOOOOO Concerned, And I Wan’t this BETA So much!!!

johjan74 12 May, 2012 @ 2:14 pm   94

Oh no. I forgot to tick in that i have also played LBP PSP! Thanks for doing this event. Hope ive got a chance to get it hehe =P

abdu__mexat 14 May, 2012 @ 11:17 pm   95

We have been absolutely overwhelmed by the number of applications we got for the LittleBigPlanet on PS Vita online beta! Unfortunately, because we already have so many applications we will have to take the registration sites offline tonight.

It’s been truly amazing to get such a positive response from you all and we would like to thank you very much for your interest.

PSN Beta Team

snakek9x 16 May, 2012 @ 12:43 am   96
