PS4 Planetside 2 Pays you!

6 replies 196 views Edited Jul 30, 2013

Not only is Planetside 2 free on the PS4, thanks to Play Studio you could actually get paid from the game! It was just announced that the PS4 version of Planetside 2 will ship with Play Studio. With Play Studio, regular Planetside 2 players will be able create their own unique content, submit it for approval and then have it added to the in-game market place! Basically if you create a new skin for example and a 100,000 people buy it, you will get some royalty from the sale of the item you created. While this is not a new concept, I do be believe that it will be the fist time something like this had ever been done on any console. I wonder if we will see other PS4 titles adopt this feature...

I found a story relating to my original post. Although this story does not mention it, user generated content will not be limited to skins and decals. Players will also be able to create their own bases and even create missions. Since this feature is already a party of other PC MM's, It is more than likely that we will see UGC as a part the other free-to-play PS4 games. Take notes AAA titles! Maybe everyone that is complaining about haivng to pay for PS+ to play online with the PS4 will create some nice content and make enough to pay for their PS+!

Astonishing if accurate and true.

That would really be interesting. So many gamers so many ideas.

I did a little more digging and found this:

 

PS2 STORY

 

Auraxis is a massive world, but for those Planetside 2 players itching for more, Sony Online Entertainment will soon have them covered. While it's not set to come any time soon, creative director Matt Higby recognizes the appeal of user-generated content. During last weekend's MLG Spring Championships in Anaheim, he laid out the long-term plans for custom creations to Shacknews.

"Longer-term, our plans for user-generated content are allowing players to do things like build their own bases on continents," Higby explained. "Maybe a continent that's empty and requires players to go out there and gather or consume resources to be able to place bases."

 

Higby says that those are more ambitious, longer-term goals that aren't actively in development at the moment. Something Higby says is coming much sooner is Planetside 2's jump into Player Studio, Sony Online Entertainment's creation tool that currently allows item creation inEverQuest and FreeRealms.

"Player Studio is something we have across our entire portfolio of games," Higby added. "Essentially, you, as a player, can create new helmets or skins for weapons. Send them to us and if they look cool and they pass the art director's muster, then we put them in and people can download them and use them in the game. And you, as the artist, receive a portion of our sales that we get for those."

I asked Higby if certain groups of players could create their own custom decals and submit them for use. Higby answered that Player Studio would, in fact, allow for such customization.

"The idea of players being able to create their own decals to use for their Outfit is definitely a piece of Player Studio," said Higby. "User-generated content is just something we want to do broadly. When you're making MMO games, giving players more ways that they can 'own' the game is really key. It's really important and something that we, as a company, have been driving towards for a long time."-Shacknews.com

Well it appears you have stumbled upon something very interesting.

Is this something along the lines of LBP?

I think it will be like LBP to some degree. I can't wait to hear more details. I have a relative with hi end gaming PC and PS2 looks incredible. The videos do not do it any justice.
