All LBP user content to be free at launch

Sony says money talk was premature.

Sony Europe has told Eurogamer that all user-generated content in LittleBigPlanet will be free at launch.

The publisher was clarifying comments made by David Reeves to PS3 Fanboy. He said you will be able to make money by selling your LBP creations using an "iTunes meets eBay" system, and even teased that we may see someone become a millionaire off the back of it.

"SCEE and Media Molecule can guarantee that all consumer-generated content will be free at launch. We know how important this is to the LBP community and what we want most is for people to enjoy playing, creating and sharing their content," Sony told Eurogamer.

"Obviously, we're also excited about the future and David was talking about how user-generated content could potentially evolve in the long term. Any decisions that are taken to evolve LBP in the future, will include the community and focus purely on enhancing the user experience."

LittleBigPlanet was one of the stand-out successes at E3 last week; Tom dribbled and drooled over the game during his hands-on play test.

LittleBigPlanet is due out exclusively on PS3 this October.
