Originally posted by ZaineUK Hi All, It's been confirmed that Planetside 2 and other Sony MMOs will be coming to the PS4 including EverQuest Next which will also be shown at E3 next week: http://uk.ign.com/articles/2013/06/05/dc-universe-online-and-planetside-2-coming-to-playstation-4 http://www.nowgamer.com/news/1952233/sonys_e3_2013_lineup_leaked_with_ps4_ps3_games.html
Couldn't agree more PS4 is the gamers choice for console now. Panetside 2 and EQ Next for PS4 will really give it some solid mmo gaming, while M$ and Xbox one will have little or nothing there. M$ have gone in this weird reinvention of the old windows media center box with Xbox One. Crazy thing is it is nowhere near as good as the TV streaming boxes or TiVos already on the market, and won't work properly with many US TV users or anyone outside the US at launch. Worse still Xbox One doesn't have anything that special for gaming, and its gaming hardware specs are inferior to PS4. M$ have dumped a windows 8 on the world everyone. Pass until they see sense and improve the box

Uh, i'm pretty sure they would shoot themselves in the foot if they marketed an online RPG for FPS players (who would be playing an FPS on the PC or 360 instead). Just because somthing can use a controller doesn't create lesser gameplay.
If history has anything to say, usually console games have lesser gameplay than PC games.

Until Sony releases more information then we still only have rumors to go off of. I would wait until E3 and the SOE live event before throwing in the lot that EQnext is being ported to the PS4.
If anything it will be for both PC and PS4 if they decide to go that route, and I assume it will be F2P like Everquest is currently. There is nothing wrong with PC/PS4 cross-platform games, if anything it targets a wider crowd and brings console gamers into PC gaming and vice versa which can help both play styles.
If WoW was released today even in its' entirety it would be f2p in 3 months.Why is it still such a big deal?
Originally posted by ShakyMo I reckon they will have to run ps2 at 720p on the ps4 and maybe knock the continent limit down from 2000 players too. The specs of the ps4 are lower than the recommended specs on the pc version.
But the PS4 would have a much more efficient OS. Windows is notoriously bad in demanding resources. So it still can come out ahead.
Originally posted by fat_taddler MMO's that have attempted to crossover to consoles have left a lot to be desired for PC gamers, particularly in terms of the UI. This will probably hurt EQ Next more than help it.
Yeah I dont see this as a good thing either....Everquest adventures (or whatever it was called) was hardly a success on the console...i'm surprised they are even considering it, even though if Smed thinks he can make more money doing it this way he will...This is why I dont have any excitement whatsoever for EQN.
Originally posted by ShakyMo Waky Eqn will use a simmilar f2p model as ps2. E.g. you can optionally sub to get xp and other resources faster with a small amount of station cash thrown in per month.
Your basing this off of what? The game has not even been released yet and you already know their pricing model? For all we know it could be P2P but i rather doubt it.
Originally posted by kDeviL Sounds great! Why do people have so much hate for the ps4? Is there really a reason or is there some kind of pride in being loyal to pc? I don't get it but w/e bring em on!
I dont know if its a hate for the consoles themselves or that most players dont want MMOs on a console period.....It severely limits the games and they are often dumbed down greatly as a result.

Graphics can usually suffer, but if the core gameplay is still there then it's no issue.
Originally posted by Drakynn Sony seems to be becoming more flexible when it comes to their market place in terms of pricing and content released digitallywith PS4,so a lot of the barriers to MMOs on Sony paltforms shouldn't exist on PS4.Thus I would not be surprised to see third party developers as well as SOE bringing out MMOS for PS4. If MS doesn't follow suit and keeps it's draconian practices in place it may well give the advantage to Sony.
Wow, didn't know the PS4 had already been released, and had been released for so long that pricing trends and corporate strategies were laid bare....
Originally posted by ShakyMo Waky I'm basing it off an article I read with smed, where he said eqn and all future Sony mmos will be f2p and that eqn will use simmilar payment model to ps2 (which is good news, ps2 probably has the best f2p model going) Can't be arsed to link, use googlefu.
Sadly, I count that more along the lines of a general statement that could still change by launch.
I'm not so much worried about graphics as fear them watering it down for console users. If they make the next version, a true successor to Everquest and then make it work on a console, then SUPER!!
However, cross platform usually scales towards the console user. Skills set up to be used in a couple of VERY repetitive button mashing.
I have no doubt. Sony read the same industry reports that were posted here.
The market of p2p-only games are declining and probably gone soon. F2P is the way to go.
