Most of you out there believe that community-created content is important to the future of video games, and while I agree with that, I also believe that content created by the community is only as strong as the community itself. I've spent the past week exploring the community-created content in LittleBigPlanet 2 and have been extremely disappointed. So many of the levels are designed to offer easy high scores, as many PlayStation 3 Trophies and in-game pins as possible, and are just generally pointless or unfinished. While I hope the better stuff will come with time (it takes extra effort to create astounding levels), all of this junk clogging up the community tubes is a waste of everyone's time and a general embarrassment. While there is an in-game tool to report offensive content, I really wish there were a similar function to report pointless crap content. There's so much potential for great things with the LBP2 tool set and I hate to see it wasted as it has been so far.
Moving on, now that you've had a few days to process Sony's big reveal of its Next Generation Portable handheld system, do you want one? Are you interested in it? Do you need more information about it before rendering a verdict? Let's hear your thoughts. For more on both the NGP and LittleBigPlanet 2's community levels, be sure to listen to Episode 37 of the Power Button podcast later this week.
