wow, this thread took a turn since I checked. Fortunately there are members that want to talk gaming instead of bickering like 5 year olds in the playground. If you're not gonna post about the original topic, don't bother. I hate making myself sound like a moderator, as I'm obviously not, but I believe I speak for the majority in that we are sick of this.

Is PU the beta program or is it just the US online account stuff? I get a little confused about it, as I also have a login for the US playstation site.

I think it might just actually be through signing up on the PS website? :/

http://www.us.playstation.com/MyAccount has a logo to the left of my name that says "Playstation Undergound" ?

I need to get around to signing up for PS Underground too.. (If its just a login to the US site, that is).

Or even better, anyone like an official/previous beta tester for Sony?

*Raises Hand*

Have been since April 2003 when they needed testers for the Network Adapter for PS2 & Socom. Have been informed a new Beta is on the horizon and should hear shorlty what it is.

Also Gav is one too.

I'm part of the Gamer Advisory Panel so I should get into the beta for this game, maybe even Killzone 2 as well as Socom (bought Qore). I've been in every beta for Socom, including PSP.

I think LBP will easily be my GOTY for the PS3. MGS4 was great but it had a lot of flaws imo, things which have been present in MGS for a long time now, but there isn't one thing I can say bad about LBP and it just looks like so much damn fun.

Some more tidbits,

1) you can plant whiteboards in your level for text..for telling stories etc. The editor suggests readers get together with him to recreate the Illiad in LBP :p

2) signposts can indicate if bonus areas in a level are accessible only to 2+ players

3) Levels are about 200-400KB in size (although this will probably vary if you import more PSEye pics etc.)

4) Sackboy suicide (:o) - while constructing, if you get stuck or whatever or want to respawn at the last save point you can suicide. Sackboy will hold his breath until he pops in a puff of fabric and stitches.

5) If you find something offensive in a level you can zoom in a tag it as 'grief'. The level will immediately be made inaccessible from the public, and flagged for attention from moderators who will make a decision it. Only one person needs to do flag a level, but if they abuse the system and consistently flag levels inappropriately, they can have that ability taken away. Moderators can also bump good levels for more exposure.

Lol for a second I thought I spoke too soon and found something I don't like and we'd see a lot of idiots flagging every level. Very happy they will take the ability away from users who abuse it though :yes:

Yeah in a way from a parental/abusive view, blocking the level right away is indeed effective - Nothing would be worse for the news press if levels were flagged but remained playable for weeks/days without being looked into.

You'd get from Fox News - "Animal porn allowed to be played in LBP for a week".

But obviously that can be abused, so punishing people for abusing is a must.

Idiots exist everywhere, especially online - You can just see people trying to grief others by blocking their levels from play with false reporting.

Sounds good, as long as they have enough moderators.

Guys don't forget we can be in a level together and create and test at the same time and I assume voice chat would be working too.

Yeah voice chat works.

Alex Evans even said voice chat is lip synced to your Sackboy!

BETA FAQ FOR THE PLAYSTATION®3 COMPUTER ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM

=================================================================

We appreciate your interest in participating in our beta program(s) for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system. To address some of the most commonly asked questions regarding the beta program for the PLAYSTATION®3 system, we have provided the following list of questions and answers for you below:

1. Question: How do I become considered for beta tests for the PLAYSTATION®3 system?

Answer: To be considered for a Beta for the PLAYSTATION®3 system, the user must be at least 18 years old with a valid PLAYSTATION®Network account. We receive many more registrations for a Beta test than we can responsibly accept, so users are selected such that we have a desired weighting of different geographic, demographic, internet usage, and game play variables as required by that particular game's beta testing goals.

2. Question: To become a beta user for the PLAYSTATION®3 system, is a user required to have an existing PlayStation® Underground account (use an email address from the PSU)?

Answer: The user does not need to have a PSU account at first, but they will end up with one. By the time a user is accepted to a Beta, and logs in to PlayStation.com to access the forums and Beta Central tools, the email address used to sign up for the beta, if not fully set up, will be completed by the user upon first access to the boards and Beta Central tools.

3. Question: To become a Beta user, does a user need to have a PLAYSTATION®Network account (email)? Master or Sub Account?

Answer: For downloadable PLAYSTATION®3 betas, a valid PLAYSTATION®Network master or sub account email address can be submitted, provided that account is for a user that is at least 18 years of age.

4. Question: Can a user sign up for a beta without a PLAYSTATION®Network account and be accepted?

Answer: A user can not be considered for a PLAYSTATION®3 downloadable beta unless they are at least 18 years of age and have a valid PLAYSTATION®Network account at the time of applying for the beta test.

5. Question: Can I change my email address for my PLAYSTATION®Network account after I applied to a beta?

Answer: A user should not change their PLAYSTATION®Network email address after applying for a Beta test. This email should not be changed until after the Beta test is complete. Changing the email address after applying for a beta may cause issues attempting to access the beta.

6. Question: If a user who is accepted to the Beta cannot download the Beta, and that error is due to a different email address being accepted than the PLAYSTATION®Network email address, will changing the email address in the PLAYSTATION®Network to the one accepted fix the problem?

Answer: Yes, provided that PLAYSTATION®Network email address was accepted to the beta and that email address is associated to the same user.

Only managed to get an analogue rip :/

Here it is, if anybody is interested

https://dl.getdropbox.com/u/66174/LBP%20Website%20Audio.mp3

Just found out that the "theme tune" from most of the videos we've seen is called "Get It Together" by "The Go! Team" on the album "Thunder, Lightning, Strike"

That's because it's the American PS website.

You can register your PS3 on the EU one :)

They said it would be bigger than the Sims.........LOL yeah right.....

That's impossible, even the number of Sims expansion packs exceed the number of Playstation 3 sold. ( Actually, exceed the number of all consoles ever sold ... )
