Over at the PlayStation Store, the LittleBigPlanet Demo (FREE) has been a big hit, and the new LBP Dynamic PS3 Theme ($2.99) continues to find new homes. I love the idea of Sackboy running all day, everyday. Don't forget to check these out when you get a chance.
Our friends at LittleBigLand.com have a new round of Community Picks. Have fun playing these GEMS:

My thoughts: From a great gameplay hook (involving a single red helium balloon) to a visual style that can only be described as "beautiful," this is definitely one of the best levels LittleBigPlanet has to offer. Don't miss it.
192w ago - Just under a month ago Media Molecule was accepting LBP Water Kit BETA applications.
Today PS3Blog.net (linked above) has confirmed that the LittleBigPlanet Water Beta codes are being sent out and include exclusive unlockables.
To quote: "As a beta tester for this Beta, you will be rewarded with the Beta Test Vest as a thank you for your participation.
It will also be possible to earn a Beta Bug Blaster Hazmat costume, a prize we give only to those testers who go above and beyond the call of duty to provide us with bugs and feedback, or generally make themselves very useful.
There may also be some creative beta challenges, which will give players another way to win one of these rare and very sought after costumes. These costumes are only available from participation in the beta."
Finally, below is a gameplay video of LittleBigPlanet's Water, Multiplayer Level Creator and new tools courtesy of Bart 013. Enjoy!

For those who haven't jumped on the "Play, Create and Share" bandwagon yet, now is the time as the LittleBigPlanet Game of Year edition Game of Year edition is available NOW!
The new package includes everything from the original as well as seven free downloadable content packs, a PlayStation Network voucher code to download the upcoming ModNation Racers online beta AND 18 never-before-seen levels created by some extremely talented members of the community - all bonus content valued at more than $30!
So, how did these 18 consumers get to be part of a video game? Well, it wasn't random. Our team at Media Molecule handpicked them all after viewing the exceptional levels each fan had previously posted online.
Once identified, we contracted each person, with payment, of course, to create a new level that would be incorporated into the Game of the Year. So, all 18 people are now amateur video game developers for the PlayStation family.
One of these creators, David Dino, a 27 year-old Hospital Safety Coordinator from Azusa, CA, recently spoke with USAToday.com about his...
194w ago - Nearly a year after the initial LittleBigPlanet launch, it looks like the online create mode is finally coming to LittleBigPlanet in the near future.
Mark Valledor, the Marketing Manager for Sony Computer Entertainment America, left the following comment on the PlayStation.Blog when asked about the elusive mode:
To quote: "Beta testing went well, so its almost here..."
The LittleBigPlanet community has already produced over 1.25 million user-created levels online. The online create mode will certainly beef up user-generated content as players will soon be able to work cooperatively at building a level over the Playstation Network.
Media Molecule and Sony Computer Entertainment America will re-release the game on September 8th with extra content under the title, LittleBigPlanet Game of the Year Edition.
Hopefully, they will patch the online create mode unti the game at around the same time.
