Eat Yummy Cake, Join the Fat Princess Beta

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by 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!!

    If they have cake in your country, it should be fine.

so you have to be a member of facebook to even get the chance to be in the beta.

hmmmm SONY is FACEBOOK paying you now to have a contest to get tons of people to maybe sign up for facebook?

lame…. this is one beta i’ll be happy to pass on.

Gorvi said:

This is a conspiracy to let all of the out of work gamers out there get in on the beta, I’m sure of it. Most of us productive types are at work with no way to get access to cake or a camera. :(

Just kidding, but damn if I wouldn’t want to be in that beta.

Mehh, weak, shouldn’t be done by facebook where the whole damn world can see you. Just email, so only a few people in the world can see you :)

    OK, that\’s a good point. I do know that there is Kosher for Passover cake. It tastes horrible, but it exists :-)

Yeah cake is a lie, reminds me of PORTAL! The orange box is useless on the ps3 as EA stopped the servers for Team Fortress… So got PC version instead ;)

Please someone help quick.

spunnups said:

April 15th, 10:04 am

Bildo818 said:

April 15th, 10:05 am

Bildo818 said:

April 15th, 10:07 am
