Illustration for article titled Controlling Content in LittleBigPlanet or You Got Your Penis On My SackBoy

Yes you can use the PlayStation 3 camera in LittleBigPlanet to stamp your picture onto just about anything, from the world you create to the sackboy you control. But what stops people from filling the LittleBigPlanet with crotch-shots and porn? You do.

Folks from Media Molecule told me at a recent event that LittleBigPlanet has a pretty robust tool built into it for reporting problems. The reporting tool allows gamers to stop the action instantly, take a snapshot of a scene and send in the picture with a report of what they see that's wrong. The report is filled out by selecting from a number of fields. The form lets you report just about anything, be it copyright infringement, pornography, illegal activities or, shudder, copyrighted pornography.

@aceattorney: What's so Orwellian about it? You DO realize you agreed to a contract and waiver when you use these online services, right? You know, those big long boring legal statements that explain to you what your rights and privileges are when using someone else's (in this case, Sony's) service?

How is this any different than someone reporting abuse here at Kotaku or any of a thousand different web formus/blogs and getting someone banned for content the site-owner considers inappropriate?
