Will LBP have online censorship? Because I predict it will take no longer than two minutes and eleven seconds before the online database of games is full of stages with tits as trampolines and literal pork swords as weapons. The ability to impose your own pictures into the game means almost instantaneously teenagers around the world start constructing levels using nothing but their genitals in various erectile states as the building blocks. Do you think they will remove such stages or alow complete creative freedom and alow a massive subculture of porn levels? Because when it comes to the internet, there is a law that states anything that doesn't ban nudity will eventually turn into porn.
So what do you think? Should they have censorship, or are you already busy trying to get the perfect photograph of your scote for some poor "sackboy" to wear as a helmet?
Theres a peer review system with the ability to report anything wrong. Its just human nature to be immature, look at Spore, there are thousands of penises, Vagina's and creatures perpetually doing it doggy style.
Personally, the thing Im far more afraid of is the deluge of Mario/Zelda/Halo themed crap. you already see it in Spore. It's going to take me months to hunt all that stuff down in my Galaxy and eradicate them in the most painful way possible.
Will they? I mean way back when Will Wright was talking about having Klingons fight Carebears.
It's not a problem with Spore I think legally... though it would be with LBP i believe for 2 reasons.
1. Direct photos or trademarked stuff. That could be a problem. Maybe?
2. The ability to charge for stages. The minute you charge money for your Mario stage you've crossed the "Fair use" guideline. Everything else i believe falls under "Fair use" though. I mean banjo blew up a mario picture in a demo for Nuts and Bolts.
Oh no, EA has already banned people from posting more creatures, it does seem though that they are far more leniant about copyrighted material.
I own all three current consoles and a great gaming rig, now thats out of the way.

"Why post something like this when all it will get is PS3 owners blinded to reality replying? BOTH THE PS3 AND BLUE-RAY WILL NOT LAST 3 YEARS! TECHNOLOGY CHANGED TOO FAST!"
"is it Wii FIt that has sold as many as PS3's sold? Thats a LOL Look at the total sales of software is it just me that sees Nintendo titles hitting 10m+ and you say they arent making a difference? Another LOL!"
"Hell, with all the negative hype Sony spin, people just aren't interested cost is too high and to get the true HD experience (1080p, 7.1 surround) you will need a $1000+ system. THAT IS GOING TO DO IT IN A RECESSION! PS4 will not happen"
