    "I think League of Legends is doing a great job with how they provide a fantastic game experience and monetize with things that don’t hurt the competitive nature of the game." *suddenly gets a sickening feeling in his stomach* you mean that game that you will have to spend around $1000 to get the full game? and get this, my favorite f2p game was Astro Empires; and guess what, it was technically pay-2-win; but you could still have a good time on a free account, and if you wanted to get into the game seriously, the "p2w" feature was a reasonably priced monthly sub

    Think you have that the wrong way round... "and monetize with things that don’t hurt the competitive nature of the game." There is no pay to win, they make money from skins, and they need to, how else do you think they pay staff wages, and support a server for 40 million + players. "you mean that game that you will have to spend around $1000 to get the full game?" Only for people who want every single skin, most people buy 1 or 2, or more if people decide that its a good game, and they wish to support it by putting a little bit of money into it.

    I have no doubt that this game will kick major ass, because the first one is the greatest online experience I have ever had. Too bad I don't have the time or PC to play this one. *tear rolls down cheek* NC Markov represent!

    the questions 11 and 13 are just idiotic and clearly show that the "interviewer" has absolutely no idea what planetside is about. first off- there will not be "low-level" areas in planetside, and will not be in ps2 either- the battle will be available for everyone, and player level has very little effect on the damage any level player deals, merely to how many roles each player may have ongoing- so if youre noob and take the biggest tank ingame, you wont have anything bigger than a rifle to be drawn when the battle goes indoors whereas that lvl gajillion trooper has access to minigun AND tank AND airplane AND power armor- but of course cannot board that tank with the power armor. second off, there are numerous possible respawns in PS1, so basically the idea to take a base requires the attakcer to rush the spawnpoint and destroy it- this is the cornerstone of the game, not "spawncamping" because the respawns can be destoryed and players can teleport from one respawn to another- meaning that if attacker takes a stations repsawn room and is stupid enough to leave the tubes standing, they better get ready for a swarm of power-armored assaulters suddenyl respawning and ruining their capture. the whole idea of MMOFPS is that each player is on the same battlefield instead of some obscure corner of the map killing rats before he/she has the level to play with the "big boys"

    Is it just me or do a lot of those vehicles look quite Halo-ey? Looks interesting tho!

    Amazing screenshots, did the art change? All of the alpha footage I've seen was much grittier and blah looking, those shots are just beautiful! Can't wait to get into the beta (have my key)! Diablo 3, Guild Wars 2 and Planetside PC is so ready for 2012 master race gaming goodness.

    I actually haven't seen to much on it, save for a slightly event-less video and some screenshots, but I can dig it. It's free-to-play anyway, so why the hell not?
