What is the importance of user-generated content within the PlayStation community?
Psychologically, what drives people at the moment is the ability to express themselves, either artistically, in terms of writing or creating something, or socially, in terms of telling people what they’re doing or what they’re plans are. That coupled with being able to sell things and make money is really very attractive.
So, for example, what we’re trying to do with LittleBigPlanet is almost iTunes meets eBay in the sense that once an individual or a developer has qualified by producing certain levels or certain add-ons, they will then be able in the future to exchange these and make money out of them. Eventually, it’s feasible that you might well see the first LittleBigPlanet millionaire!
Even if you charge less than one euro, it doesn’t take many downloads if you’ve got a really strong LittleBigPlanet level for people to be able to make money. It’s a great way for people to show others what they can do.
