LittleBigPlanet 2 Beta Will Make Its Way To The US In A “Few Weeks”

by Ernice Gilbert on September 11th, 2010, under Hot, Media Molecule, News

Ah, I know, the wait’s been too long. A recent update on the US PS Blog clarified that the beta invites sent out earlier this week only went to active members of the European LBP community, and that gamers in America and other countries will be added to the testing group “in a few weeks.”

Someone’s got to explain to me what does Sony and Media Molecule mean by “in a few weeks”? A few weeks could mean in the next 14 days or a full month. There must be a better way…. Wait.

Guys, how about I forge some UK documents that will give me instant citizenship in the country, making it easier for me to get into the beta? Hmm? The plane tickets around this time of year are expensive, though, and when you factor in how high the pound is against the US dollar, it’s even worst.

I, however, could always use grappling hooks.

So which will it be, E3 or GamesCom? I’m personally routing for E3 since, well, I’m in the US! But for the rest of our beloved users who live in parts of the world closer to Cologne Germany, they’d rather it be in the latter location. Can’t blame ya.

Well according to Namco Bandai Partners VP Oliver Comte., that’s a decision which must be made soon. The both of them are just too expensive.
