Win a Little Big Planet Beta Code courtesy of Platformer Update

Platformer Update is giving away one Beta Code to Little Big Planet to one lucky reader. These codes are no easy task to get a hold of, in fact as soon as websites have allowed visitors to sign up, the sites crash shortly afterwards. The rules are simple, just follow these easy steps and you will be one step closer to playing in the Beta:

  • Leave a comment telling us your Top 3 favorite platformer games of all time and one platformer series/game that most deserves to be revived or remade (explainations are fine but not required) for next gen systems. (For help on defining a platformer game please browse this website or visit our About page)
  • In the comment, please include your PSN Account name (You will be notified by a comment on your PSN name with your code.)
  • Limit 1 entry per person (comment more than once and you will be immediately disqualified!)
  • This entry period ends at 11:59pm ET on Saturday, October 4th. We’ll choose our favorite entries and randomly select one winner at that time to receive one Beta Code, you will be notified by your PSN name not email. (Please note, no biases in terms of the game series you pick will play a role in our selection, we will just be weeding out obvious spam entries, so in essence every entry could be called a “favorite”) Good luck, please make sure you have read the rules carefully, any missing fields will automatically disqualify you!

Wal-Mart exclusive LittleBigPlanet trailer

As the October 7th release of LittleBigPlanet draws near, we are getting closer and closer to what could be (and you may quote me on this) the best platformer ever. Everything you see in the video above (and anything you ever see of the game) is user created content. That means you create the look and layout of the levels, even allowing you to import pictures with the Playstation Eye. Want a boss at the end of everyone of your levels? sure just create him and go crazy! A recreation of Stage 1-1 of the original Super Mario Bros.? go right ahead. The best part is sharing your levels or downloading others creations from around the world, and them playing them cooperatively on the internet.

LittleBigPlanet rumored to be coming to PSP

One of the best PS3 games to be released in the future for PS3 is now also rumored to be coming out on the PSP according to an inside source at CVG. No other details on how or if the game would link up with the PS3 version or gameplay elements were discussed, however it is a safe bet to say there will be some kind of linking of the PSP and PS3 given their love for remote play and all that kind of stuff. LittleBigPlanet uses a complex physics system which would be interesting to see how it gets translated over to the PSP. Just remember that nothing is confirmed yet, however lets hope that they finish up the PS3 version first so we can finally play this awsome platformer!
