:(, I can’t enter.

BTW, you guys should make friend request appear on the top of your friends list instead of the bottom since nobody scrolls down to the offline users to notice invites…

The prizes are quite lame for the effort involved. At least offer a $100 voucher for PSN or something.

Why doesn’t Sony pay for those 3 people to have a way to Colorado?

Sony never puts out any money to help someone get to the place where they hand out gifts or whatever.

This is a great idea but it’s horrible timing. There’s not enough time to make plans, so this really only becomes available to those who already planned to go. As much as I like X-Games I can’t see myself going to Winter X ever. Especially now as it’s in the sub-zero temps pretty much anywhere in the country that gets snow.

Congrats to those that apply and make it, but things like this need more advanced notice, especially since the contestant would have to provide their own travel to the event.

I know this has NOTHING to do with this, but I am having an issue on LBP, Im creating a level, and when I change to play mode, and enter a certain part, the entire stage falls apart. Can you guys fix it?

+ Letters2Kay on January 16th, 2009 at 7:40 pm said:

@19 joel

I’m having the same trouble. You need to be more sparing with your gluing in the future (and so do I). I’m going to use as little as possible in my new levels. Try detaching some of the things you don’t really have to have glued (especially score & prize bubbles, it seems). I have a level published that needs one, tiny fix- and every time I try… timber! It explodes and falls to pieces in play mode. It’s driving me nuts. That and the fact that every piece of walkway I create is too complicated before I’ve barely started are really wearing on me. I want to create more, but it’s just such a turn-off… :(

Very cool (no pun intended)! Too bad I won’t be in Aspen during that timeframe. Actually won’t be in Aspen either…more like Vail. :-)

in the online age, everything sure does need everyone to travel to everywhere.

At least unlike Street Fighter IV, this game is actually out to everyone ><

That and why you asking people to do this with like 4 days away.
