    ps2 is persistent, its a super super size map (world) whit bases that are the same size as fps maps on thier own that are conquerable by each fraction (kinda the point of the game) whitout loading screen (except when traveling from island to island or using warp games ..or however they are called)

    I'm sorry, but I am a HUGE PS fan...  And this trailer is awful.  It has some really great clips of the game hidden within it, but overall its super embarrassing.  What were they thinking??

    They would have been much better off letting some of the movie-making guilds from PS1 create a trailer for them.  There are some amazing PS1 videos out there, and I am sure we will see a ton of great PS2 videos... SOMEDAY.  This one feels cheap as s#(t.

    Should've just used some of TotalBiscuit's footage or something. There is some pretty amazing footage of PS2 on YouTube and this trailer was not it.

    With that said, I can't wait to play this game.

    Planetside 1 is still one of the best games I ever played.  I have high hopes for Planetside 2.  Since PS1 no game can compare to the scale of it.  PS 1 was 133 vs 133 vs 133 on one continent.  Most continents would take couple minutes to go from one side to the other in the fastest vehicles.  On foot you are talking 15-30 minutes in a straight line.

    I expect a lot from Planetside 2, I hope they deliver.

    The trailer was uninspiring.

    Eh. Now I remember why I wasn't into PS1 despite being a major shooter and MMO fan. I'll wait another 5-10 years for better technology. I'm not sure how this is any different from the Free to Play Tribes game out except for the better vehicles. I want clan owned outposts and territories to defend and fight over like in Shadowbane or maybe Eve.

    I agree ... I hated that nobody could own anything, but it will still be f2p and massive battles.

    Sorry, but only an idiot wouldn't like this game, nor appreciate it for it's refreshing take on just about everything. In a world of regurgitated shit video games, this is one of the few that stands out.

    You can't see the difference between tribes and this? You're a 'major shooter and MMO fan'? Seriously they have a gun you shoot, it ends there.

    There are things I'd like to know such as;

    discussion of only 3 conts at launch, a pop limit at best of 2k, so how does that work.

    No cert limit per character, extending certs for me killed a lot of the release PS. The abslute necessity to specialise and group so that you could play the game was awesome. A 'jack-of-all-trades-in-the-end' character progression takes from the community and reward aspects of the game. Go on ps now, so many soloers and they can all do everything.

    XP boosters, here's the thing, why? They keep saying it doesn't matter, they're not selling power... then why sell this? Because they know it will sell like shit of a shovel, in a competative pvp environment xp will be power saying it's not is just a lie.

    I'd like more info on radar, infiltrators, dark light etc, probably just look this up somewhere tbh

    Then there's the thing which was missing from ps1 a decent command structure with proper tools, I've seen info on mission creation which is a step in the right direction but what else?

    Your gonna wait another 5-10 for what?

    Also what do you mean your not sure how its any different from tribes ? Tribes is very similar to normal fps MP games each time you start a game its a new match.. nothing persistant about the world at all..

     

    PS1 and PS2 has a large open persistant world you join a side and work towards world domination.. Sure you cant own territory as a single clan but your side can own the territory and you will ahve to defend it and attack enemy owned territory..

     

    I think you need to take a look into the game before making comments really..

    The animations looked really stiff.   Hope that gets ironed out before it goes live.
