One thing I noticed is that there is a 3D option in the settings, but it doesn't seem to be active in the beta. Can someone else with a 3D tv confirm that it isn't a usable option in the beta and not just some compatibility issue with my LG?
I believe the beta has now been pushed to Plus subs. You can also get a code by registering at IGN and Gamespot (if you aren't already a registered user).
I know it's just a beta and not an official demo, but at this point I would be giving this a pass, even though I bought both LBP games and MNR on release day. I just don't like how the karts handle (too loose) and other gameplay mechanics, including the shields and the confusing array of weapons that hardly ever seem to hit their target. The creation tools also didn't feel as intuitive as I would've liked based on my experience creating in LBP and MNR.
With some improvements, this could be something I pick up down the road after a price drop, but with all the other expected AAA titles in early 2013, I can't justify my pre-order anymore.
