that's a pretty simplistic and lazy reply.
i am sure there are equivalents on the 360, but you just need to look at littlebigplanet, LBP2 and LBP karting to see that there is no blanket ban on PS3 games allowing communities to build their own content.
i suspect this may have more to do with the cost to valve of patching/updating/releasing on the psn/xbox live.
