    Phase 3 has been deviated by a few weeks from the original beta roadmap, probably due to Sony certification for the PS3 version and to perform some more polish on the upcoming version for testing.  With this delay, we're probably looking at an August retail release.

    that shouldnt be hard as the ps4 will use (x86) architecture and uses amd hardware. And im glad they arent wasting time with backwards compatibilty...seriously.  Ill slap anyone who buys a PS4 and complains about playing last gen games on it.

    Still impressed at how different it feels from 1.0, Yoshida did a great job on the fundamentals, and if the new features we get at launch and in the months after work as intended this could go from a good to great mmo.

    Yoshi hinted on a PS4 release during the recent NicoNico event.

    It would be stupid for not having a PS4 port.

    It will be a sub game. No F2P option whatsoever. A mistake, IMO, but I'll save that discussion for another time.

    Well I think SE dont need milions of players. I am happy with one niche group of players ;)

    damn cant wait .. hate this delay, hope its not only cause of PS3 version ..

     

    I am happy as well. Far better to have a smaller more invested all paying player base I think than to have a huge one made up of non-invested transient freeloaders that encourage all the wrong types of design goals.

    The game is in great shape, this launch schedule makes sense and should give them enough time to polish polish polish :)

    Agreed +1 to both posters, delay is down to certification of ps3. In the meantime I'm having a blast on Borderlands 2 until phase 3.

    Lots of people already did that first time around. Not sure SE would want a repeat of the mass exodus again.

    Hopefully a good number will get a chance to assess this lazarus attempt during beta. Otherwise it may be once bitten twice shy for many players who got burnt with the original offering.

    Im in the beta and its an ok mmo but not good enough for sub

    If it was f2p or b2p then I would have played.

    There is too many other mmo's out and that are coming that I dont have time with a sub mmo if it isnt 10/10

    It might not be 10/10 for you but for some it is 11/10 ..

    MMORPGs are not developed to be played by everyone you know, every mmorpg is hated by one group of players and in the same time loved by other group of players. So yea .. good luck and really stop deceive yourself because no one here cares if you will or wont pay the sub. I know I will.

    Does anyone know if the ps3 and pc versions will share the same servers ?

    Lolipops !

  • ShauneepeakShauneepeak Biddeford, MEPosts: 421Member
    With it being this late why did they not just wait for the Playstation 4 I hope they at least release a version on it and allow account transfer. I just feel the Playstation 3, no matter how much I may love it, will hold this game back.
  • JudgeUKJudgeUK Posts: 847Member Uncommon

    Catering for the PS controller contributed to the wreckage of a UI input last time around. Haven't managed to get into the beta as yet, but hopefully SE have learnt not to limit - to the point of ruination - the PC UI controls.

    What was it? 4-5 commands just ot get one action done? Awful.
