LittleBigPlanet may allow users to charge for created content - Reeves

The PS3 title could feature an eBay-like system for selling user-generated levels and add-ons

LittleBigPlanet may allow users to charge each other for content they've created, according to comments made by David Reeves, president of SCEE.

Reeves compared the title's planned system to monetise user-generated content to that of eBay and iTunes, further suggesting that users could set their own prices and that LittleBigPlanet could help users generate substantial amounts of money.

"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," explained Reeves according to PS3 Fanboy.

"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," he added.
