Sony Online entertainment claims that one player has already made over $100,000 creating in-game items for Sony Online Entertainment titles. The revelation came from SOE boss John Smedley during an interview with Game Talk Live. SOE's John Smedley revealed the news during a preview of the upcoming survival horror MMO H1Z1.
When asked if the game would feature support for SOE's dedicated software that allows users to create their own in-game items with Photoshop and Maya and sell them through in-game marketplaces, he confirmed that it would, and that one player had already made a lot of money using it to create items for various games.
"In fact, we just had our first player create $100,000 from items," Smedley said.
Player Studio is currently supported by EverQuest, EverQuest II and PlanetSide 2, with support for Landmark planned in May. The new game, H1Z1 is a zombie-survival MMO currently in development at SOE. According to Smedley, players will be able to play the game "fully" soon. The game will feature a day-night cycle which will make survivors use light sources to find their way around in a similar fashion to DayZ.
