FINAL UPDATE: Everyone who’s going to receive a beta key from us should have already received it. I’ve noticed a lot of, um, pointing out that “I sent mine in before [that guy] and I didn’t get one and he did.” The way we did it is – we gave keys out in the order they showed up in our inbox. With the amount of emails we received, it’s entirely likely that they didn’t arrive in the order that they were sent. Of course, we’d have no way of knowing that… so goes the interwebz.
UPDATE #2: The beta keys are sending out now, so check your inboxes (and spam filters). All should be reach their destinations within about 2 hours (it’s 4.23pm Pacific right now). Good luck!
UPDATE: You can stop sending emails now, we’ve gotten more than enough. We’re processing them now and we’ll update right here again once we’ve begun sending out beta keys. Thanks for the awesome response!!!
Our first dive into the world of LittleBigPlanet taught us all about the SackBoy, now it’s time for another visit! The second episode in this series takes us deeper into the wonders of LBP. This time we answer the question- “How do SackBoys Play?” You’ll soon find out, alone or in a pack, these little guys know how to have a good time.
Oh, and a few days ago, we stirred up a bit of a frenzy by handing out the remaining 50 beta keys we had left over from our Orlando Meet-up. Some of you thought that, as the official PlayStation blog, we should have a bit more than 50 to give away. Well, we here at the PSB don’t like having our Bloghood called into question. So, as of the time of this writing, I’m sitting on a monstrous stack of burlap-covered LittleBigPlanet beta keys, and they’re there for the asking. So ask away, send an email to [address removed, all codes have been sent] and we’ll get them out to you.
Now we’ve got *a lot* of beta keys to give away, and I’d hate for you to develop repetitive-stress disorder from whacking your F5 button to refresh your inbox, so expect it to be a few hours before the codes are sent. We’ll update this post when we have it lined up and start pressing the “send” button.
If you receive a code, this paragraph becomes relevant to you:
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.
Downloading the LittleBigPlanet Public Beta.
After you have signed in with your PLAYSTATION Network Account, select [Account Management] on the XMB interface located under the ‘PLAYSTATION Network’ tab, then select [Transaction Management] and click on the option ‘Redeem PLAYSTATION Network Card or Promotion Code’. Enter the following unique code to start the download of LittleBigPlanet.
And once you get in, you can start getting creative. What’s that, you’re looking for inspiration? Have a look at Wired’s Top 10 User-Created LittleBigPlanet Adventures.

Jeff thanks for the LBP News. I think this could be your first 5 out of 5 post rating. Well hope I get a code and try out the game I will be buying anyway.
Did this go up at 12:30 or at 12:00?
JEFF! I just told a bunch of my coworkers about this, so if you see like a dozen emails from the same domain, they are actual real people (I assume they use their company emails).
Also, I hope my buddy gets one, since it’s his birthday today. Hehe.
Considering its the middle of the day across most the country, I hope I got in!!!!
