Sony video games are getting a little more interactive, with today's announcement of Player Studio, a program that allows players to create in-game items to be sold in the Sony marketplace.
That sounds so awesome! Gonna give it a try :D
Agreed! I can't wait!
Sony are never shy to innovate thats what i love about them im not a fanboy i have 360 also but microsoft have lost my money next gen.
How is this innovative? A lot of the games you like are made by people who used to be modders. This has been done 10+ years ago with a game called counter strike. Left 4 Dead was a mod. Team Fortress was a mod. "User-created TF2 items bring in up to $47,000 for some Steam members" http://www.joystiq.com/2010... "success of one Team Fortress player in Kansas who was earning $150,000 (£97,000) a year making virtual hats." - Gabe newell http://www.bbc.com/news/tec... Sony is so far behind trying to be like an open platform. Oh no I criticized the all powerful lord sony! Disagree all you want I just proved it.
It's a good thing you only have one bubble so that your trolling is reined in. God forbid a console company help out people wanting to get into modding easier, and probably laying the foundation of future console game modding opportunities.
Wow you're the most narrow minded person I came across this site. No, not alot of games made by people used to be modders. You need to go to college and get a degree under Programming, Art, Design, Level Design, Sound, or Management. People don't often just randomly get hired for making mods. Even if they do that is on rare occasions
listen mate every company has their own pros and cons for a company to address their cons is basically inovating. Sony never had this and are adding this to their their list of features, so what's with your silly ass school boy comment. Are you that down about your own life you have to try flame people on a gaming news site where we are all here for the same reason, get a life you nob.
@ado908 Wrong. You do NOT have to go to "game development" schools to make games. What do you think they were doing before all that came about? And Valve did hire modders. A successful mod will get you hired, school or not.
@ado check out media molecule hiring people for creating awesome levels on lbp. none of them had degrees or prior programming skills
You do realise that left 4 dead wasn't a mod right? that was a game made with valve and i think turtle rock studios who did the AI coding for CS:S. The rest of your argument isn't worth rising to
@ SirBradders Huh? Innovative? MS already did this by giving out a free dev kit to make 360 games a long time ago. http://www.ilovefreesoftwar... This is great that Sony is allowing modders to build items to be sold on the marketplace...but lets not get ahead of ourselves by calling it innovative when MS gave out dev kits FREE to ANYONE so that they can make 360 games. Maybe now SirBradders you will still stick with MS...but I have a feeling you never really planned to do it to begin with regardless of this OLD information brought to your attention anyways.
I know, Indie games on the 360 say otherwise, but these people have short republican style memories.
So mods are now a Sony innovation?
So? Its still a positive feature for the PS3 which is something that you dont want to admit. Who cares if Sony isnt the first to do this what matters is that they are doing this unlike other console manufacturers.
If that was suppose to be a stab at MS. then maybe you need to research more since Kodu has been out for two years now. which allows you to make "GAMES FOR FREE" with your 360 or PC. http://fuse.microsoft.com/p...
Whats the intial cost?
Eleventy Gillion South African rand.

@lndcalling more like $5
awwwwww uc3 and ps home immediately jumped to my head, turns out its only soe games :(
'a program that allows players to create in-game items to be sold in the Sony marketplace' Well, that is useful to me in how many ways? Oh yes, none.
Yeh and i'm pretty sure they were thinking specifically about you as they made the decision to do it lol , i'm glad all the tax that goes into education isn't wasted
They were obviously thinking about people who wanted to make in-game items to be sold in the Sony marketplace. Which isn't useful to me. Is that so hard to understand?
And into race car drivers.
Wow, look at how many people immediately jump on the Sony hate bandwagon.
