Eat Yummy Cake, Join the Fat Princess Beta

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Apr 15, 2009 // Sr. Social Media Manager

Yes, you can have your cake and play with it, too. Titan, the developers of the forthcoming PSN-exclusive Fat Princess are searching for beta test volunteers beginning later this week.

This is a “real” beta; the developers don’t just want you to play, they value your feedback. You should only participate if you’re willing to report your experiences on the closed beta forums, discussions, surveys, etc. You won’t just be having fun, you’ll be helping to make Fat Princess an even better game when it debuts on PSN this summer.

Also, you’ll get to brag to your friends. Over and over.

Being a closed beta, access is limited; so we want to make sure the most fervent, determined fans benefit from our allotment of 250 beta codes. We struggled with deciding how to determine which PlayStation.Blog readers want it the most. Then it hit us: cake.

The first 250 people to upload a picture of themselves eating cake (cheesecake, cupcakes and fruitcakes are all acceptable) to our Facebook fan page will get in. Please make sure that the picture is of YOU, and that you include a piece of PlayStation paraphernalia in the pic (a DualShock controller, T-shirt, PS3, PSP, etc). Just upload your pic(s) to the gallery and tag them with “Fat Princess″ – you’ll need to ‘Fan’ the page first – to let us know you want in! Then, once the beta gets underway, we’ll contact you via Facebook with information on how to join in on the fun.

In case you’re lacking for inspiration, we took some practice pics in the office. Now head out to the bakery – these spots won’t last!

UPDATE: Looks like we’ve got enough photos now! The response has been awesome and overwhelming, so thanks to all of you that have entered. We’ll go through the entries now, sort out the duplicates and whatnot, and contact the approved photo-submitters via Facebook by noon (Pacific) tomorrow. If you didn’t make it, pay attention to our Twitter account for other sites that may be granting access to the beta. Thanks!!

@CanisDiris Apparently there are some problems with online play, but a patch is being worked on. I’ve been told you may have more luck using your friends. Add me if you want: smiffypro

Playing beta locally (single player or with bots), as I can’t connect to any online game (almost any, tried for 3 days, just managed to connect to one game, but it was laggy as hell).
Do you have any kind of forum for close beta feedback? Links would be appreciated.

Jeff quick question! I’ve poured over and over the e-mail that provided the Beta code and can’t seem to find a link anywhere to the Beta Forum for Fat Princess. Is there s link I should just “know” to access to get to it?

As a follow up I have found it in the PlayStation Forums. Thanks anyways!

I’m really angry because the contest ended, and while other sites (as I have now just found out) held contests for beta keys as well, the PlayStation Blog didn’t inform any of us as to when the others held their giveaways. USA Today gave away 1,600 codes first-come-first-serve. The fact that I didn’t know this because the PSB didn’t tell me…is upsetting.
