Unlike the Ps3, the 360s architecture is setup to incorporate both the CPU / GPU. For example, it has unified memory. That is a terrible choice by Microsoft as there is "load balance" issue. User created mods, might temper with the load balance of the game, causing strain on the CPU / GPU.

With the terrible hardware problems they are having, they don't want user generated content that might over work their already fragile system. The Ps3 separates that CPU /GPU memory not to mention, it has other such fail safes to allow user generated content to run on it's system.

... or maybe it's because they know they won't see a penny by having users create their own content and share it amongst others. Typical Microsoft.

Oh, I don't know. Is it because they're a bunch of money grubbing freaks that want to CONTROL everything?

User-generated content is one of the attractions of the PS3, and might I say the last nail in M$'s coffin once Sony rolls out games that allow for user-generated content.

HD-DVD Transformer is a FLOP!!...AHAAHAHAHHAHA
