I'm so sad I miss one of the only Beta that matters to me...

To anyone who has an LBP avatar and didn't get a key, I salute you... You fought well.

Oh, and everyone try IGN when they announce their beta program. However, it will require a bit more luck to be chosen.

I'll never understand why people organize things like this on servers that are 100% guaranteed to go down. There has to be a better (that is, not bad) way.

So there's no chance of having an EU code anymore ? Even on another site ?

I heard they were doing 20,000 betas per territory, so EU should still have 14,200 beta codes left.

So Sonic style loops are possible...just have to be on some sort of rocket propelled vehicle. Very nice :D

EDIT: Anyone currently in the beta, please tell me how the music system works. Possible creation or just stringing together premade tracks/beats?

Yeah there technically should be other Euro sites having contests.

20k in Japan, 20k in Europe, 20k in USA.

Just keep on the lookout and follow the GAF. :D Someone will find a site.

The game's pretty fun, I gotta say. And so far the levels have felt like they're worth replaying too, since you collect stuff you can use to get a higher score on the next run.

hopefully Kagari, Teknoman, Private Hoffman, and MiamiWesker got it working.

BTW. anyone can tell me if the 5th sharing is still active? since i used the code on the PC Store so that means the code may still work?

oh and those that know my information don't go giving it away right now ;o

Well, this didn't change my mind about the game. It just doesn't play like a very good platformer (physics-based platforming, ugh) and the content creation isn't really of any interest to me.

Even if there are some really cool user created levels—and I'm sure there will be—I think I'd get as much enjoyment out of watching youtube videos of someone playing through them as I would myself.


I don't like this from the EULA either:

There aren't any subtitles either, which was annoying. Hopefully that's just a beta thing.

I got it working. Loving it :D

It's really odd how some folks have not had success and it is locking them out after downloading it. I don't understand. It's not just Kagari, it's other people too.
