Chance is your already looking forward to getting your greasy mitts onto Little Big Planet as soon as possible. While the release is getting ever so close it I have manged to grow even more impatient. Whilst all news about LBP has so far been on the brilliant side, the latest goss has reached the excellence mark.
David Reeves, president of Scee recently stated - ”What we’re trying to do with LittleBigPlanet is almost iTunes meets eBay in the sense that once an individual or a developer has qualified by producing certain levels or certain add-ons, they will then be able in the future to exchange these and make money out of them,”
To my ears, this news is pure gold. Not only will a few talented people make a nice bit of extra money doing something they enjoy but the rest of the online community will benefit with well-made, professional and cheap user made levels.
This really is excellent news. The very chance of someone making a big buck or two is completely feasable. “Eventually, it’s feasible that you might well see the first LittleBigPlanet millionaire!” mentioned Reeves.
I’m hyped about this and think this is a step in the right direction for this generation of gaming. What do you think? Would you ever buy user generated content? (I know I would!)
