you can play user created levels 'offline', meaning, on your own.
but no, otherwise it's 'little big planet online beta'
I don't believe you can play any level offline...it just won't load up the level and say "connection failed." you have to be online to play the beta, whether by yourself or with friends.

Question... I preordered LBP from Best Buy to get the Nariko code. If I cancel the preorder, do I have to give the code back? I want to preorder LBP somewhere else.

Hopefully this hasn't been posted in the beta thread yet.. Anyways, the latest issue of Pelaaja(A Finnish gaming mag) gave LBP 10/10 saying it's the best game on PS3 etc. :D

uh.. i believe the levels themselves (at least user ones) are stored on the 'net... so you'll need an active internet connection to download them to play.. whether you are playing with others online, or locally.

I am undecided about buying LBP. Can someone describe to me what kind of game LBP is trying to be? All I see is a level creator type of game. Will this game have a coherent story and a good single player? Is it a platformer? I know a lot of people have played the beta, so a little input would be helpful.

Ok, I've got a quick question guys.

I got my hands on the game early, but I haven't played it yet. This is the only time I've ever been lucky enough to find a game before the official street date that can be played online.

Question: Is there any "danger" to going ahead and playing the game? Maybe a stupid question, but I don't want my online account on the PSN to get banned or anything like that.

I found it at Target. I went in to just check the clearance games and stuff, and down on the bottom of the case next to a bunch of the games with the clearance stickers was a single copy of LBP for some odd reason.

Maybe I'm crazy, but from playing just the first couple of levels, the controls actually feel a bit smoother and crisper than in the beta. Maybe it's just me, but moving back and forth between the three areas of front/back movement seems much easier, and the jumps seem just a tad bit less floaty.

Since this is the closest thing to an official thread, I'll post this here. I just got a big laugh out of something:

A meerkat dance club, complete with female meerkats and pole dancers! :lol
