    This is a sci-fi FPS, right?  Sorry, just not sure.

    Ehh... sci-fi ish.  Still similar to many weapons/vehicles you see today.  Part 1 had, ATVs, Buggies, Trucks, Tanks, Bombers, Troop Ships, Fighters and more.  Still there is a sci-fi feel, but not as much as Startrek or Starwars universe.

    So yes it is sci-fi but not all laser beams and what not.  A mix depending on your faction.

    I signed up.  Would be nice to be selected, but so long as the game is fun and exciting, I can wait for it.

    This is the most anticipated game for 2012 in my books. Loved the original PlanetSide and will probably love this too. Can't wait!

    PS has always been Sci Fi MMOFPS, though you have the TR who are ballistic  and more classic in weaponry. Planetside 1 was out even before the first xbox console was on the market, you could say Halo is Planetside  in some of its look and feel. Just as everybody seems to be comparing anything fps to COD, when the genre has a rich history of games that shaped it before the Pc exclusive that  was COD wondered off over to the consoles. PS has so much that's it's own ID, but newer, younger gamers won't realized having cut their teeth on  Halo & COD and will scream Copycat at SOE

    If All Points Bulletin has battles of 3 factions with 200+ players on each side, fighting over a huge military base with tanks, APCs, gunships and other stuff.

    Then yes, it's like All Points Bulletin.

    LOL... I'm surprised someone actually made the comparison. In APB all I did was get forced into 4 v 4 objective-based team deathmatces. I wished it was on a much largeer scale. At least 12 v 12.

    200+?

    if i am not mistaken, it's totally open world right? so no instance at all?

    if it is, i could see like 5000+ in 1 map?? ( well considering how popular this game is )

    So What Now?

    No instances, but due to technical limitations there might be a population cap on each continent where the fighting is going on. The original PlanetSide had these and you had to queue to enter the continents that were full.

    I would suppose it will be the same case with PlanetSide 2.

    However, no one will force you to stuff yourself into the full continent. Just go to another and start capping bases. Sooner or later the enemy will be forced to respond.

    Now with SWTOR out this is the biggest one on my watch list, although GW2 and Secret World are up there as well. Only way I could be more stoked is if someone picked up Earth & Beyond for a redux.
