Here is a good idea for a skin editor: charge the price of a Mash-up pack, and limit the amount of skins you can make to the amount a normal skin pack has, and when you make it, you submit it to a setup where it is checked for copyrights, then boom! Afraid youll stop making money? Start putting up mods for tvs, nukes, apocalypse, etc.
HOW ABOUT DAT????
I still say it has more to do with the fact that skins are continuing revenue to fund all the free updates we get. Copyright isn't the issue; that hasn't come up with games like Soul Calibur V that allow for much closer representations (And more offensive content for that matter)
If this doesn't get Namco sued:
Then this wouldn't either:
Unless 4J tried to sell that particular skin to us without permission. Just as if Namco sold that outfit, in those colors, to us.
I hate these threads more than any other kind of thread. I am going to stop explaining why it cannot happen.Even if they added it and you got banned if you made an explicit skin, people would get banned left and right.
What I'd love to see them do is sell a skin editor DLC, and then packs of "parts" to color. Long hair models, different arm/leg/body parts and such. But in the long run its just more profitable for them to sell packs of premade skins.
