74w ago - Sony Associate Producer Jason Coker has officially announced the LittleBigPlanet Karting PS3 and PS Vita Beta release dates today alongside a recap of the recent San Diego Game Jam below.
To quote: I'm happy to report to you all that the LittleBigPlanet Karting Beta will begin next Tuesday, July 10th.
Those of you lucky enough to be selected will start receiving codes next week, and we will be sending out vouchers to more people as the test continues through Tuesday, July 31st, so if you haven't registered yet, make your way over and sign up ASAP right here.
In related news, we recently had a really amazing group of LBP creators join us for an entire week here at SCEA's San Diego Studio where they were able to get their hands dirty experimenting with LBP Karting's Create tools.
I think it's safe to say that a good time was had by all, and the participants gave us invaluable feedback on some tweaks that will end up giving you all really great experience when LBP Karting hits store shelves later this year.
The LBP franchise has always had a strong community element so it was great to have the people we're making the game for in our studio face to face talking through their creative ideas and processes. At the end of the day, this level of interaction...
79w ago - Sony Producer Kyle Zundel of San Diego Studios has made available a glimpse of LittleBigPlanet Karting for PS3 multiplayer fans, which will be featured at E3 2012 next week.
To quote: With E3 less than a week away, I wanted to take this opportunity to provide a quick update on what you'll be seeing at the show in Los Angeles.
We'll be unveiling our multiplayer mode, which supports one to four players offline and one to eight players online, and I'm sure you'll be reading plenty of hands-on reports from the press during E3 week. I can tell you that it's addictively fun - you won't want to put the controller down!
We'll also be showing off more of the single-player campaign that users will be able to explore, as well as some of the additional non-racing experiences that are unique to LBP Karting, so get ready!
Secondly, I wanted to quickly thank our friends in the press who have spoken highly of Sackboy's newest karting adventure. As IGN put it..."LittleBigPlanet Karting is already an incredibly promising step up and a great new direction for the LittleBigPlanet franchise."
Lastly, I wanted to pass along a quick reminder about our pre-order bonus offer.
83w ago - UFG Game Designer William Ho has posted up a video today showcasing Sackboy behind the wheel in LittleBigPlanet Karting below.
To quote: The easiest part of showing off LittleBigPlanet Karting is just getting to play it outside of United Front Games.
We don't make fun, fresh, addictive games just for ourselves. We make them for you, your friends, your brothers, your sisters, Little Timmy and even for Crazy Uncle Larry.
So it's incredibly important for us to get the game in the hands of real people - real gamers - like we did in Los Angeles last week.
Thanks to everyone who came from the four corners of globe to get hands-on time with LittleBigPlanet Karting. Merci, France! Gracias, Mexico and Spain! Spasibo, Russia! Cheers, Australia! No worries, Canada!
It was great to see smiles for every drift and every jump, every big air swing with the Grappling Hook and every on-the-spot slapfight. Our new Battle Mode was definitely a hit.
"Garden Grip", a race course that lovingly pays homage to the very first LBP level, opened everyone's eyes to how beautiful Craftworld can be in full 3-D. And "Future Perfect," a race course that captures the joy...
86w ago - Sony LBP Community Coordinator Steven Isbell has announced today news of LittleBigPlanet 2 PS3 update 1.12 arriving this week, with details on the new features for PlayStation 3 fan below!
To quote: Update 1.12 for LittleBigPlanet 2 will be out this week, and it will introduce a few nifty features to the game.
The Dive-In feature has now been moved to the top of the Community menu, and has been vastly rewired and improved to help players easily find some new Sackfolk to play with during their adventures!
To help encourage creativity, we have removed the Boos from the Level Rating System. You can still Yay a level to say that you really liked it, but we found that the Boo ratings were disheartening at best, and could be used to cause grief amongst the community.
If you happen to find something you don't like because it's rude or mean or just plain offensive, then hit the Select Button and use the Good Grief System to report it to our moderation team.
Comments & Reviews
If you have just played a level and wish to provide the creator with some helpful feedback, then you can still use the level's comments section or perhaps leave a nice and informative review for the entire community...
