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!!

    I have no access to cake right now, but I have a great picture of me yelling at cake, willing it to allow me to eat it so I might become a fat princess. Or maybe because I was hungry.

    Either way, the only problem is that there is no PS control in there. But I’m imagining one. Does that count? :)

      I\’m afraid not. Only those who want it the most will get in!

  • Damn, guess i gotta go buy a cake or something at the store on the way home.. hopefully a few hours from now wont be too late

  • Nice, now i’m a fan of the blog!

  • I do not have cake at home.. Can we eat something else :)?

  • will we be contacted through facebook? I put my PSN id in the picture too.

      Yes, me or Chris will drop qualifying pic senders a note with further instructions.

  • made it!

    Jeff – I have a picture of me eating your wedding cake. haha just trying to be creepy and live up to my PSN name. Sorry, not going to be able to participate – at work and not allowed to have a camera. Would LOVE to get into the beta though.

    Cool contest idea though!

  • willskate4free

    how about a rice cake does that count?

      Well, it is a cake, right? The judges approve. But man, live a little!

  • This sucks… I could go get cake from the cafeteria… but I have no PS stuff at work…

  • lol great competition:)

  • hmm i have bagels and PSStuff at work… maybe that will work as a doughnut

  • Dammit no cake! Only biscuits! :(

  • I put my cake where my mouth is :P hope i get in!

  • StalkingSilence

    Haha actually, come to think of it, no cameras allowed at work, no facebook access either. I wonder if cake is even allowed around these tight-wads ;)

  • YES! I ran to a box of poundcake and just ripped a piece out. I hope I made it in time.

  • I have a screenshot of Fat Princess in my photo, is this sufficient?

  • When will we know if we won

  • i didn’t get a pic of me.. but i took a pic of my PS stuff can that count!? please say yes
    it has cake!

  • Yay! My photo is up now… I’m pretty sure I made it in because there are only like 100 photos up right now.

    Is it OK that the PS3 didn’t make it into the shot? I just took the pic in front of the Fat Princess section of the last Qore episode

      That\’ll be fine. We just want to know it\’s you, and that you didn\’t do a google image search for \’eating cake\’.

  • When will we know if we got in?

  • Does someone have any cake I can borrow?

  • :( no cake at home.

  • Aw nuts. I seriously just finished my last Krispy Kreme.

  • Cheesecake FTW!

  • DeforMAKulizer

    Woot!!! Uploaded it =D
    Mom is still laughing :P

  • I don’t know who came up with this idea, but this is awesome!

  • Respect to the people at SCEA for making a complete fool out of themselves for these pictures. *ROTFL*. By the time I’ve got my cake and weigh a few ounces more thanks to all the calories, at least a 1000 people have already signed in, which will be tomorrow.

    Why? Stores are closed now overhere :-( 7:30PM

  • StrykerIsland

    Done and done. :)

  • I’m currently at work with no access to any Playstation paraphernalia. I sent Titan Studios an e-mail a couple of weeks ago asking about a beta but never got a response. I’m deeply saddened knowing I won’t have access to the Fat Princess beta.

  • Ow well, get the chance to play the game sooner or later anyway :-)

  • Jeff, I uploaded my pic, but since I’m at work, I don’t have any hardware around me. Does the PS logo count for anything? Please say yes. :0)

  • VanilaGorila-x-

    I’m at work so I took a pic with the Playstaion forums up on my computer in the background, hope that will suffice.

    Peace,
    VG

  • Picture uploaded! Hopefully Pan”cake” Mix will count! :-)

  • linebeginstoblur

    I did it! I had my PSP, and I even made sure the WipEout Pulse title screen was on.

    I had cake, but it came from a vending machine. Still cake. I hope it counts, because I don’t even want to finish this, it’s bad cake. lol

    You guys are awesome, by the way. ;)

  • Oh God… Twilight poster! DX

    BTW, I have no cake on me so I can’t enter :(

    }:-{D}

  • Jeff, this is an awesome competition! I just posted my picture according to the directions and I eagerly await invitation to the Fat Princess Beta. I’m so psyched for this game!

      Thanks for participating, we thought this would be a fun way to hand out the codes.

  • Woo-Hoo got the picture posted. That was awesome fun, I have never been in such a hurry to eat a cupcake. Wait, yes I have.

  • AmericanNinja1

    Jeff do homemade muffins count?

  • Hello :]

    If there is PS3 Cap, LBP ticket and hardly (but possible) to see PSP Games is it ok? ;)

    Greets from Central Europe / Poland.

  • Will a Cookie do? :-D

  • You’d think I had an unfair advantage as I work in a bakery huh!
    Weird as it is, I don’t usually have cake in the house.
    Luckily I had a SaraLee cheesecake in the fridge.
    I hope my picture is acceptable as you can only see the cake on my spoon… lol.

  • ok.. hope i wont be penalized for posting 2.. my first had psblog in the background but it was hard to see… so i geared up and took another..

    theres only 10 pages of pictures so far..at 20 a page, theres still time to get in guys!

  • Ok, I found some cake in the freezer… Had to eat it frozen.. Everything to be in the beta! How do we know if we have made it or not?(I think the number of fat princess pictures has gone over 250)

    Please answer this :)

  • I don’t mind being forced to eat cake in front of my PS3 but being forced to get on Facebook… two thumbs down for that one!

  • There needs to be another way for us to get into the Beta for those of us who aren’t able to get this done. I formally challenge Jeff to a match in Street Fighter IV for a Fat Princess beta code.

  • Just give me a BETA key now!!! I am planning to buy this game though ;)

  • lol, do pictures with people biting into cake mix boxes count?

  • I dont think I made it in time…. =[
