SOE opens Player Studio to allow development of user-generated content
For all of the MMO’s that inhabit the world of Sony Online Entertainment there will now be a whole slew of personalized items being created by their community. Players can download sample objects through a service called Player Studio. The samples are templates of existing objects from a specific game and the user can then design completely new items based off the templates. The SOE president is excited about the prospect of all this content and had this to say about the future;
You will be able to name, describe, and develop the lore around your item and the universe it fits into. Then the item can be submitted for review by SOE and might even make it to the SOE Marketplace. Any user-generated item that does, SOE will share 40% of each sale with the creator. Right now the only games compatible with Player Studio include Everquest 1 & 2, but Free Realms and Vanguard are coming soon. Check out the official site for more information.
