With DLC updates as common as the selling of the video games themselves, user-generated content for let say a triple A shooter could potentially change the way we experience multiplayer shooters forever.
I would love to see more and more games to have user generated content. inFamous 2 is taking a pretty big step by letting you create missions and stuff within a game that already probably has a lot of content. More shooting games should also let you create your own stuff like Halo does and how Far Cry 2 did. People have made some pretty cool things in both those games, would love to see games like Killzone and stuff let us create our own maps. And as much as I dont really like COD, I think COD could really use a mode where you can make your own stuff
. Uncharted 3 User-Generated Content would be next...
Not only shooters, ALL PS3 games should have user generated content. Thats why I love the PS3 so much, it only does everything, only on PlayStation!
Actually, with news of R3 going down to 8v8 multiplayer, I wonder if we won't be seeing user-generated content there as well. I fully support the concept in any game personally. And, Sony seems to be supporting the concept with a lot of their games now as well.
MotorStorm has User Generated content. You can alter and create your gameplay types and share them with the community. I would like to see the ability to share custom cars with people. MS:Apoc is focusing most of the online towards customizations, perks, level design elements, customs gaming, etc. They are really throwing in the works. Also with PS3 having Steam/Steamworks connectivity, I think it'll be a lot easier to create a server just to distribute PC Mods to the PS3. Unreal T3 had this, but no other game does this. I think if a game comes with a Editor on PC, it should be able to transfer to console as well.
everyone can create maps, and they are only KBs to Dl as all the pieces are on everyone's disk. You can also make maps in co-op, split screen or online.
I think he knows that. Quoted: "More shooting games should also let you create your own stuff like HALO does and how Far Cry 2 did."
Forge is outside the context of the main, single-player game. Also guessing that there's no specific game modes like survival or escort.
Don't mean to come off fanboyish, but this is one of the major advantages that PC gaming has over consoles. I would love to see more console games get decent mod and map making tools, but tbh even with what's happening atm, I think we're a long way from the point where it becomes anywhere near as big as the PC mod scene.
You don't sound like a fanboy, you make a valid point. But I must say, even though consoles may in fact be a long ways off from implementing the user-generated tools currently experienced on the PC, once a talented console developer takes this idea and runs with it, it could offer a revolutionary experience to online shooters on consoles.
The PS3 has been shown to be able to use mods since UT3, its just that devs like Valve have been less than willing to use the console. As for the 360, its MS policy to keep it a closed system.
devs wouldn't allow it in ranked rooms because they'd complain [so would other players] it be an unfair advantage. that's why not all created rooms in Socom 4 won't be ranked.
They actually patch a few user created maps into the FarCry 2 ranked list that were created well balanced that the community liked. Would have been nice if they could have kept adding more good user created maps to the Ranked list of maps. What does user created rooms in Socom4 have to do with mod tools or map editors, that is two totally different things? BTW not everyone just cares about stats lie you might believe. Some people do actually play games to have fun and play with friends and not care if stats are recorded or not. There is a huge part of the gaming community that play mods or user created maps on unranked servers. Even FarCry 2 had a bigger unranked community than the ranked side. It's about fun for most of us especially when most Leaderboards are BS anyway with all the stat padding and cheating that goes on in every game that you can never completely prevent, because losers with no life will always find away to cheat the system just to get that 15 mins. of e-fame when it just makes them look like what they are losers with no life. What do people always think when they see someone at the top of a leaderboards? Never "WOW that person is awesome.". It's always "WOW that loser has no life.".
Not a big level creator myself but I love playing other ppls levels.
Halo Forge says hi!
why don't we.
Patch Killzone 3 to have a Mission Editor so that people can create their own Operations Maps also Uncharted 3 should have its own Mission/Adventure Creator also.
I think this could be a boon for the console side of gaming. I think everybody should be able to experience the ability to mod and create content. I would just be concerned with how much freedom you are going to actually be given. On the PC side of things, it's virtually limitless...
I can see Sony using something like this with the PS4. This would be great for For Sony.
They didn't try with Killzone 3
User generated content definitely has its place. Its been around for a long time on the PC side and certainly some games like LBP or the Halo w/ Forge have embraced it with high success. Will it be good for all games? No, certainly not...but I am very excited to see where games like Infamous 2 take this concept.
As long it adds more fun why not. I love/d creating missions on PS1´s Tenchu 2.
I would surely hope so.
But i can't help but think that 360 titles like Halo would greatly benefit from a mechanic like this. That the guys working on it are probably looking into it. Well likely tout it as an "all original" idea.
Doesnt Halo have forge?
Imagine Uncharted with user content. I mean I'm not saying put it into single player but it can be like Halo's forge mode. They could include everything from Uncharted DF to Uncharted DD....setting, characters, obstacles etc People could even create maps and let people play them for online modes.
halo didnt do anything new you can create mp maps in tons of shooters already and no one cares about dumb mp map customization morons. this is single player open world mission creations which is a million times better the same with LBP you create coop,mp,sp, levels sorry but nothing the x360 has even comes close to touching the user created content of the quality of the ps3. im sorry but the ps3 is gameing and is the future of gaming and its just sad some people play x360 just because thats all there friends have. rather then play a console for the best games, quality, etc you would rather play the one with the worst of everything just because your friends are to dumb to pick or afford the ps3.
I agree Xbox users have friends.
User-generated content pwns on PC, why not on PS3? They're already got the basic idea w/ Modnation & LBP
Sony should really push this feature. It would help sony sell their console.
