Media Molecule plans to run a public beta for LittleBigPlanet at some point this month.

"There will be a limited public beta test for LittleBigPlanet in September," said developer "Sam_Protagonist" on the official PlayStation forums, spotted by Kotaku.

"If it will be possible to 'sign up' for this test, full information on how to do so will be made public in advance of the test. Similarly if the test is going to be conducted in an invitation-only [way] we will let you know ahead of time."

He said LBP was almost finished and that the beta would be used more as a stress test for the sharing aspect of the game, although he is "looking a little more deeply into the game experience" than bunching thousands of us together to see what breaks first.

And remember, making and then sharing ideas is just one part of LittleBigPlanet; Media Molecule has already created more than enough content to justify the "game" tag, it reckons.

Hop on a giant skateboard and zoom over to our LittleBigPlanet gamepage to find out more. Full game's out on 29th October.
