In November Do We All Go to Work for Sony?

Sony's LittleBigPlanet is being heralded as the first 'killer app' to hit the PS3, a hybrid platform game and social networking system that will not only earn Sony heaps of cash but may just completely democratize game design in the process. But what is the price of that democracy?

Have all be "touted" as Killer Apps for the system. The media is so thirsty for news and buxx words they'll make up $#*T to prove a point. Truth is, LBP isn't the 1st killerap for the ps3 and it won't be the last.

My thing is this, the EULA has already been accepted by all the users playing LBP, so asking for Money is out of the question, but I feel it is only fair that if Sony takes someone's level and offers it as DLC they should at least acknowledge the creator of said level. Because even though the end-user will not make money on their creation the gaming industry as a whole is very small and tight knit and this game for many can be their entrance to the industry. A great creator or "Modder" can gain some reputation by creating levels in this game and for some it can very well land them a job as a designer in a gaming company if potential is seen in that person.

That would be one hell of a story for some.

Quite a few employees at game studios were former modders. Many people who made mods for games like Unreal Tournament and Quake ended up in teams that worked on sequels or new IP.

LBP is heavily based on level design, so it obviously caters to the level designer crowd. If they implemented limited programming, it would also cater to them, too.
