This rumor wasn't a rumor for very long; the official source – depending on how you interpret it, of course – confirmed it to be true.
TheSixthAxis first posted a picture of a PSN friend supposedly playing the LittleBigPlanet beta , which quickly turned a lot of heads. That picture could be doctored, of course, but the game's developers, Media Molecule, essentially confirmed the beta at their official blog . As you can see, they say the "beta-trials are keeping us especially busy." We suppose this can be interpreted as internal betas; part of the design process that we lowly gamers most certainly aren't a part of, or they really could be referring to an imminent public beta for LittleBigPlanet . Over the past few months, we've been hearing about the possibility of a beta for both this promising co-op platformer and PlayStation Home, so this is just another step…
The closer we get to any betas, the closer we get to the final product. That much is obvious. Therefore, if Media Molecule plans to issue a playable beta soon, perhaps LittleBigPlanet will soon have a concrete release date.
