More details about 1UP's LittleBigPlanet Beta Key giveaway.
il be there... i must get one of those 25,000 codes
waste of my time and no key, plus I am giving them traffic for nothing.
Boring. This LBP beta stuff is getting on everyone's nerves. I honestly think all these sites should be forced to give them out the same way, through some kind of automated system. All these sites trying to get extra accounts and more publicity and then taking forever to fulfill the obligations to the winners is really starting to piss me the hell off.
It should be sent out through Playstation. I bet there are 360 fanboys just getting these beta keys for the hell of it. I bet there are also who just get it for no good reason. If it's sent through Playstation, at least they can verify who has a PSN with a PS3.
yeah it is definitely annoying the way this is being handled, but coming from someone who REALLY wants this LBP beta, I'm gonna do what I have to. They say jump, I say how high? ;)
a bullet in their heads about this. I'd like to be a part of the beta but I don't want to have to keep checking each and every site, signing up for them just because they're using us and our interest in LBP.
I am not even trying. I wish they would just send them to PSU members...
This should be more organized. There are so many being given away, and yet I feel like I have no chance of getting a code.
Yeah! Whatever happened to that?! Underground and G.A.P. members used to be worth something in the eyes of Sony Computer Entertainment....but alas, it seems that has changed.
The game looks great but I am occupied with Socom beta. The new patch fixed a lot and it is so fun now.
Monday is a day I h8.
Seriously, i don't even think i am going to get one of 25,000 codes that are being handed out. The thing that is bugging me, if so many codes are being handed out, then WHY is it not a free DL on the PS store. Saves everyone time........
Look at the demand for this. If it were a free download on the PS store, you'd have hundreds of thousands if not > 1,000,000 people downloading it.
why dont they just make it available in the psn as a demo, doing this beta code give away sh1t making people tick off...
I agree with all you just put it onto psn and or give the appropriate registered psn user the damn codes. Some people are getting multiples and others nada. it seems like quite of few deserving individuals on n4g are not getting sh!t and its wrong.
I'd buy an episode of Qore for this beta. I'm sure thousands of peeps would too........maybe Sony doesn't like money?
If I didn't, I would totally buy an episode to get in this beta. This is my most hyped game this year.
I still have yet to receive my SOCOM beta code from Qore, but it is true that these sites need to just give it out without all these gimmicks. Random note: I have battled Sony for about three weeks on my beta code only for them to tell me that I should just call their hotline for a supervisor. I was on hold for a little under forty minutes before someone finally picked up and refused to give me a supervisor. They then proceeded to tell me that Qore codes are given out randomly, and I may not receive one at all. I then called Future Publishing, and they had no idea what Qore is; they are the publisher. I am now back to e-mailing Sony, informing them that they need to just give me a refund at this point because the SOCOM promotion was either false advertising (It is supposed to be a guaranteed code.), or their company just took my money without giving me the product. /end rant I apologize, but I am beyond furious that I was not given something for which I paid. This whole LBP beta business it just making it worse; I seem to be drawing a relationship between the two despite the fact that they are completely different situations (paid without product/free).
I thought I was the only one who didn't get my Socom beta from Qore. It's fvcking bullsh1t.
I think I have my chances with the GS one. Maybe the IGN one too. Both will be given monday so I'll be waiting
but looking at it from a marketing perspective this is doing nothing but good in both getting the word out about lbp as well as gaining some much needed attention (business interest and gaming interest) from the major gaming sites. if sony doesnt drop cash on some tv ads (what's new) MM is going to need all the organic and clever marketing they can get...
thats why they tease us and tempt us with little factoids scren shots and thel ike for months and then say well we finished the game but we will do a beta. if people want it.... they ge a huge number saying yes ok but well only do a small one 60k spaces if there were 60k copys of a game that had been hinted at ant teased at for months the people who wanted it would go nuts for it and would pay anything. like ocnert tickets or superbowl ones. they are marketing the game but there doing it wisly it was in the sun paper today . and there not plastering adds up everywhere thats not sonys style. fyi the little big planet pop up shop has 8 staff working from all over being paid 12£ 22 22dollars - 20£ 36 dollars an hour for showing this game and half the time they dont even have to hsow it each time ive been in it was very busy people of all ages... we are the advertising each post we make each comment on forums each person we tell spreads little big fever. even non console gamers i know think its fun and wish it was on pc. im wearing a lbp t-shirt atm and will happily advertise for this game smart marketing doesnt just mean spending big money. think of the 1000 billboards if someone found one with no idea of the game they either leave it or write down the name trying to figure out why a mini billboard is on the street if they ask the find out. if they took it they google it and word spreads.
We all understand the marketing behind the beta, but a problem comes along when sites use beta keys for hits. European sites had the right idea with simply giving out beta codes to the first couple of members who pushed a button. It was clear that sites such as the Spanish gaming blog had changed the requirement to "members only" because they did not want foreigners getting keys. Gamespot put a bad taste in people's mouths after forcing them to sit through On the Spot, so people are now both skeptical and angry about 1UP's secrecy.
they need to do something diff other thaN this crap of "oh give us your idea , or what do you think......etc" then send it in an email its stupid by the time i maybe even get a beta code the freakin game will already be out!
still want a key
and then I will be rich! grand numero dos, here N4U comes! muhuhahahahahahahha...hahah... hh.aaaaah
...they have no keys to give out. I don't believe in Karma, but Justice; and Justice has been served.
i want a key
