Eat Yummy Cake, Join the Fat Princess Beta

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by

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!!

Jeff, I posted comment #133 here and you replied to say that you didn’t reach the 250 yet. I posted my photo on Facebook before I posted that comment, so I should have been in?

Here’s my photo:

What’s the deal? Thanks!

I posted my link to photo but it is still in moderation…

But BTW I definitely was in that 250 (some pages before BUTT-BUTT)… Also I made all the rules. So I’ll wait some more time for info.

Both the USA Today giveaway codes and the Gamespot codes have gone out. Will our codes be sent out any time soon? Everyone else is playing already! I would have signed up for the USA Today giveaway if I knew the PS Blog would take so long :(

I received a beta code from 1up, but the only instructions that came with it were how to redeem it on the Playstation Network. I’ve already noticed a few bugs: where are the closed beta forums located so I can post reports, etc.?

My code isn’t working :(
It’s giving me a 8002311A error when I try and redeem it…
I got it from the facebook competition.
I’m using a UK account, do the facebook codes only work on US accounts or something?

Edo411 said:

April 17th, 2:02 am

I have the same problem as the person above me, is it because the beta hasn’t started yet or because I’m EU? Please say its the former :(

Ackers11 said:

April 17th, 2:40 am

im from the EU and my code isnt working :-(

the error is the same could you please help Jeff!!?

Ackers11 said:

April 17th, 2:46 am

damn – now its saying it may not be valid or correct although it is definitely the right code :-(

smiffypro said:

April 17th, 2:52 am

I’m getting the same problem also.

smiffypro said:

April 17th, 4:16 am

It works if you’re using a US account – it would’ve been nice to have been told this.

tomsau said:

April 17th, 4:28 am

well there is a (naughty) way round
Make a US account then dl it with your US account

and then play with your EU account
but i think thats against ToS as it includes falsifying information about location

Ackers11 said:

April 17th, 4:36 am

@smiffypro Thanks for tellin me that – its working now :-) good job you can do that but if people do not have a US account howcome it was open to everyone?

SMCentrall said:

April 17th, 4:38 am

Some funny pictures! I was too late for this one :-(

    Your privacy settings are too high – I can\’t send you a msg via FB. I\’ll hit up your PSN.

smiffypro said:

April 17th, 5:37 am

@Ackers11 Did you set up a US account or is your code workingn now? It annoys me that it didn’t say anywhere about it being US only.

designeric said:

April 17th, 5:45 am

I was #141 ish but I didn’t receive my code. Did I not make it or was I unqualified?

VanilaGorila-x- said:

April 17th, 6:01 am

I’m pretty sure I made it in the top 250 and didn’t receive an invite either unless the PSU forums in the background didn’t count.


Ackers11 said:

April 17th, 6:10 am

I allready has a US account from way back but yes i did have to set up an account

it sucks that it just wasnt universal

smiffypro said:

April 17th, 6:16 am

I can’t seem to get to play online. Are you having problems?

Ackers11 said:

April 17th, 6:22 am

I havnt had the time to play it yet – ive got a coursework deadline for monday so i cant really say anything about the game yet

tonight i will be on it though

Froh said:

I played for a couple of hours last night but was unable to join other games. I was doing other network stuff so my connection was working. I’d bet the community servers just aren’t up yet.

tomsau said:

April 17th, 6:59 am

one more thing, where can we leave feedback?
I’ve already got a few things to say :P

Canuck4Life said:

April 17th, 9:26 am

I was pretty sure I was in the first 150 or so… not sure if mine wasn’t counted because it looks like a muffin but aren’t muffin also technically like cupcakes? :D

Yoh said:

April 17th, 9:34 am

I never received an e-mail or a code, and I know I made it in the first 250 and pic was one of the best over there, am I going to receive one?

loucetios said:

April 17th, 9:43 am

@285 same

there is a serious audio error in the game, sounds like its running in mono instead of stereo and makes the game sound horrible, fix that!

Tooevil_BR said:

April 17th, 9:59 am

i got mine today. thanks

smiffypro said:

April 17th, 10:04 am

What’s with the rock outside the castle? I can walk through it!

teele777 said:

April 17th, 10:34 am

Seems some people have codes from this contest already. Have you responded to all the emails yet? I sent it last night and haven’t heard anything yet. Should I be more patient?

smiffypro said:

April 17th, 11:07 am

The getting people to help you could do with a bit of work, doesn’t seem to do anything sometimes. I love the catatpult, bit annoying when people get stuck under it!

smiffypro said:

April 17th, 11:20 am

I got a code (unfortunately they’re US only). I sent the email last night (GMT). Email them again!

StrykerIsland said:

April 17th, 12:40 pm

Where exactly am I supposed to post my beta feedback?

CanisDiris said:

April 17th, 1:55 pm

I can’t go online in the beta. I am in the beta I just can’t play online? Is this only single player for the beta or can I play against others because I want to play against others.

DaveyJam said:

April 17th, 3:48 pm

Damn. Its US only, can’t EU peps have a EU compatible code?
