'Project Spark' not ruling out user sold content

The game that allows you to make games may also permit users to sell content. The possibility rests in the players’ hands.

Project Spark, the free-to-play, create-a-game title for Xbox 360, Xbox One and Windows 8 PC has the potentiality to enable players to sell games and content they make within PS, according to the developer.

“I think the pride of creation, whether you can sell it or not, is very real,” said executive producer, Sax Persson in an interview with OXM today. While no official confirmation was given, Persson didn’t exactly rule out content selling either.

“We’re not announcing anything to do with actually selling it,” Persson said. For Team Dakota, the goal remains on optimizing the creation process.

“We have focused on first proving that you can make stuff that people really, really, like, and then we can cross that bridge if we get that right.”

Persson explains that Project Spark, like Youtube or Team Fortress 2 before it, did not launch with consumer money making opportunities and that as the framework and community involvement improved so did the chance for users to create sell-able content. Project Spark is on a similar road. So before money can be made, a base of creators and content has to prove itself first.

There’s no telling when PS will reach this phase of its life, but in case you needed more convincing, selling your work seems a plausible future for Team Dakota’s game.

Project Spark is has begun taking beta signups for PC users with Windows 8. The full release on Xbox 360 and Xbox One is slated for some time next year. Note: An Xbox Live Gold subscription is not needed to play.
