154w ago - Recently BludgaBoy has shared a LittleBigPlanet 2 PS3 BETA - Windows: LBP Edition Creation video showcasing the work of Boss_Mob, SaggySackBoy, tomatenbrei and daFRED94.
While the game isn't available until later this month, those interested can check it out below.
To quote from Kotaku: "This Windows XP homage, built in the LittleBigPlanet 2 beta, won't run a copy of Excel or PowerPoint, but it does do a reasonably good impersonation of the operating system's desktop, start menu, built-in timewaster games and, naturally, a blue screen of death."
Finally, from the video's caption: "It works... well, *almost* perfectly (just like the real Windows, there are some kinks in the works), and it's an extremely accurate re-creation, right down to the log in noise. You've got pictures, music, videos; even some built in games for you to play! Who needs the NT kernel or C++ when you've got LittleBigPlanet 2?"
155w ago - SCEA Marketing Manager Mark Valledor has shared some fresh videos as part of the final LittleBigPlanet 2 PS3 updates for the year, which include new LBP2 Beta levels.
To quote: As 2010 comes to a close, we're sprinting to the finish line to one of our biggest releases of the year.
With splendid news of Media Molecule going gold, our first review being a 10 out of 10, and the LittleBigPlanet 2 demo being downloaded faster than Sackboy strapped to a F-14 fighter, this is truly the start of "Endless Fun."
LittleBigPlanet 2 has so much to offer that it's tough to contain it in just one trailer. Fortunately with a few crafty people and some help of a few fans...
OMG BETA!!! After seeing these new beta levels, we're speechless...
PlayStation vs Marvel vs Capcom
The Fist of Craft Earth
Last minute gift idea... For those of you looking...
157w ago - Sony PlayStation Network Product Manager James Thorpe has unveiled the treats for PlayStation Plus subscribers this week, which include Dead Nation and Hustle Kings avatars and access to the LBP2 PS3 Open Beta.
To quote: Hi Guys, it's already time to give you the first installment of your festive December treats. So here goes...
You may have seen Alex's post last month about LittleBigPlanet 2 and the amazing new game coming to PSN on 15 December: Sack Boy's Prehistoric Moves.
We thought you guys might like this so we are giving it to you completely free and one week before everyone else on PSN. New, free and early!
The second treat today is also LBP2 related. We were gutted we couldn't give you the first LBP2 beta exclusively but to hopefully make up for it a little, we have managed to persuade the guys to extend the LBP2 beta for you Plus members.
The numbers are unfortunately limited but if you have been chosen then you should have already received an email and are hopefully playing, creating and sharing as we speak.
Another treat for this month is something you have been asking for: There are two Dead Nation Avatars now available for download. Check out your exclusive 'Hero' and 'Heroine' avatars today.

Featurette: Bounce Pads
Many of you wanted to see more uses of the new Bounce Pads in LittleBigPlanet 2 and in our latest featurette, we highlight its use with a little creation of our own.
Coming Soon: New LittleBigPlanet PSP Story levels courtesy of our fans!
We can honestly say that we didn't see this coming! Introducing Kindred, "a collaborative project that introduces a brand new story level series to the PSP community."
Kindred is a completely new storyline developed by some fabulous Creators over on LBPCentral. In addition to the teaser trailer, we love the mini-marketing teaser posters. Find out more at their main page.

170w ago - SCEA Marketing Manager Mark Valledor has shared a LBP2 video today alongside updates on the LittleBigPlanet 2 PS3 Beta, featurettes and a PAX 2010 wrap-up.
To quote: For those of you paying attention, you've probably heard that LittleBigPlanet 2 beta codes are being distributed.
Here's the skinny: Yes, beta codes are going out. But globally, we're taking steps to best test our server environment, so we're distributing beta codes in phases.
The first phase of testing started earlier this week with our European LBP community. In a few weeks, we'll be growing the participant base with US and other countries. More news to come...
With so many new features in LittleBigPlanet 2, its impossible to discuss all the new things in one sitting. So we're introducing a series of LittleBigPlanet 2 Featurettes that highlight some of the many new things you can do in LBP2, such as the new Grappling Hook and the revamped SHARE experience. Stay tuned to the PlayStation.Blog for continuing episodes of LBP2's Featurettes.
The dust is still settling from this past weekend's PAX 2010, and we had a blast seeing all our fans....
