An upcoming LittleBigPlanet 3 private beta is scheduled to begin this August, but Sony warns that access to it will be tough.
The company has already selected a number of community creators from fansite LBPCentral to participate in the limited test, promising that those chosen will receive invites in the coming weeks.
"Please be aware that space for this private beta is incredibly limited and only a small number of you will actually receive an invitation, however we thought it would be better than you hear about this private beta directly from us than just through the grapevine," wrote LittleBigPlanet community manager Steven Isbell.
"So please don't be discouraged if you didn't get chosen this time around... We still have plenty of news to share with everyone between now and release. And we certainly won't forget you all."
Isbell also states that offers of beta keys on Twitter are a scam, adding that any LittleBigPlanet account claiming it is giving away codes for retweets and favorites should be ignored.
LittleBigPlanet 3 will launch this November on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. The game is being developed by Sony Xdev and British studio Sumo Digital, known best for its work on Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and LittleBigPlanet 2's cross-controller DLC.
