Sony says 'we're leading in user-generated content'

At least Sony has one thing to smile about this morning. According to Sony's Michael Denny who spoke with, Sony is leading the charge in user-generated content for home consoles. Denny backs the claim by counting successes for LittleBigPlanet, Buzz! and SingStar. "... SingStar is now an online community of over 300,000 users. With Buzz as well ... there's over 100,000 user-generated quizzes that have had over seven million plays."

Denny also noted that LittleBigPlanet has almost 180,000 community created levels having been played for a combined total over 22.4 million times. Denny admits that a strong community backbone in previous hardware generations eased the move to the PS3 for some of these key Sony games -- speaking specifically about Buzz! and SingStar. While LittleBigPlanet hasn't performed in terms of sales as many, including us, would have predicted, it looks like the community response to the original IP has shown a tremendously healthy sign of interest.
