It appears to have finally happened – after a solid few months of PlayStation 4 users creating absolutely any kind of game they wanted to in Media Molecule’s latest hit Dreams, Sony has begun to take action against certain themed projects that are being uploaded.
A Dreams content creator @Piece_of_Craft shed some light on the situation, explaining how they had been contacted by a “big video game company” and were apparently told to stop. The same message went on to reveal how all of their Super Mario projects within Dreams had been put on hold.
The creator allegedly received an email from the legal and business affairs division of Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe, detailing how Nintendo supposedly “objected” to the use of the Super Mario IP in Dreams. As you can see in the image above, the project has been moderated and removed for containing copyrighted material.
While other companies (at least for now), don’t seem to mind players recreating their own games in MM’s new title, if this is, in fact, true, it seems Nintendo might not feel the same way – which wouldn’t exactly be a surprise.
