Sony's been promoting User-Generated Content with upcoming releases such as LittleBigPlanet, as well as the much hyped Home – Game 3.0, as Sony's Phil Harrison puts it – a social space where gamers can discuss games, share content and more. It's a canny move for Sony and could be one of the big trump cards that the PSN has over Xbox Live. But despite all this, it looks like Microsoft and Bungie might be the first to really push the concept of UGC with the release of Halo 3.
Making Home work and marketing it for gamers will be difficult for Sony. Will lots of gamers really want the features that Home offers? Likewise, new IP LittleBigPlanet looks promising, but could prove to be a tough sell. Given the undeniable popularity of Halo, have Microsoft and Bungie just stolen Sony's UGC thunder with the integration of editing tool Forge?
