LittleBigPlanet Limited Space

LittleBigPlanet will only give you so much space(of course) to share all of your master mind creations, however to reward those who are popular, Sony is allowing more space to be given to you.

So, if you’re level is super awesome extreme and people flock to it like I flock to cotton candy at the fair, then you will be eligible for more space.

GamePlayer states that

If their scheme works, users who upload the most popular levels will be rewarded with more space. It’s common sense, really — when lurking on YouTube, do you look for the videos with five stars, or with one?

On the other hand, if you wanted to play Devil’s Advocate, you could accuse Sony of some subtle social engineering here. After all, server space is so cheap these days that it’s effectively free. Just think of GMail, and Flikr, and all those sites that let you upload files that are hundreds of megabytes in size — for free.

So it’s not an issue of cost — it’s an issue of quality.

Sony wants to create a sense of value for those who’ve bought their game. By rewarding the best LittleBigPlanet players with more online space — and by restricting those who, well, suck — they can make this dream a reality. Or at least, that’s the plan.

This is awesome for one reason. “’s not an issue of cost – it’s an issue of quality. ”

To be able to get rewarded for your talent and not for how much buck you have in your wallet really makes me tilt my head at Sony and say, “Wow. You’re not money hungry!”  It’s about time. Now, someone else learn from this sense of community.
