Player Studio Contributor Gets Huge Payout

Venture Beat has posted an interview with John Smedley who reveals that a 16 year old Player Studio contributor has an $8,000 dollar check on the way.

He doesn’t know it, but a 16-year-old PlanetSide 2 fan is about to get an $8,000 check from Sony Online Entertainment. And all he had to do was contribute content to PlanetSide 2 — something gamers have done since the dawn of PC gaming. The money is part of a program that’s designed to reward players for building high-quality content, says SOE president John Smedley. The goal is to help new games like free-to-play massively multiplayer online first-person shooter PlanetSide 2 close the content gap with competitors like World of Warcraft, which have a significant lead in terms of story content and features.

Were you the author? What items did you design? Sound off in the comments!

The biggest news in that interview is actually that the game will not be released on PS4 this year.

Good for that guy. Playerstudio is a very good system (or will be once its world wide) the 40% cut is a lot more generous than it would be in a lot of other companies schemes.

Arctorn is older than that. We asked him in ItZMuRdA's stream chat yesterday.

Great effort, imagine how much it could have been if the population levels had not been on the slide.

I saw the news, my question is:
What is the item he created?
My second question is:
Why is my signature a new decail on player studios? Do the player studios check for copyright before publishing anything? It is not mine, but it is not the author who is publishing it! (I am 90% sure that the autor is dead).

Murphy's Law - by the time the EU get access to Player Studio, they'll probably stop doing it. The games industry give US players preferential treatment most of the time anyway.

The player studios people do a very large amount of checks on stuff before it gets past the many levels of approval before its accepted. You can see this on the player studio forums, when they are naming and shaming people for using clipart.

This thread is the author of the art piece you use for a sig.
I think the decal version would of looked better , and also been larger without the rear TR logo/shield. Im hoping it still looks good though.

Screw all this network programming on real-time critical systems costing millions per hour per downtime, I should get into 3D modelling!

So I'm guessing that SOE isn't hurting for income then.
