Player Studio user earns more than $100,000 creating in-game items

A user has earned more than $100,000 to date by creating and selling assets with Sony Online Entertainment's Player Studio, SOE president John Smedley revealed during the latest Game Talk Live episode detailing zombie survival MMO H1Z1.

In response to a question if H1Z1 will feature Player Studio support, which Smedley confirmed the affirmative, he mentioned that SOE just had its first Player Studio user reach $100,000 in earnings to date from creating and selling in-game assets.

Player Studio allows users to create in-game items with programs like Photoshop and Maya and sell them on in-game marketplaces. Player Studio first launched in 2012 and is currently integrated with EverQuest, EverQuest 2 and PlanetSide 2. Support for the program will be added to sandbox game Landmark on May 1.

SOE announced earlier this month that Player Studio will be available to people outside of the U.S. for the first time. The program will roll out to players in Canada, France, Germany and the U.K. on May 1, with a launch across other countries later this year.
