Planetside 2 confirmed to be arriving to Steam

@XGNet: A tweet by the President of Sony Online Entertainment, John Smedley, has confirmed that Planetside 2 will be released on Steam.

The story is too old to be commented.

The Ultimate Online Shooter just got EVEN MOAR Ultimate!

Planetside 2 = Battlefield 3 Killer!!

At this point the only thing that could make PS2 better is if Super Models made you sammiches while playing PS2!

This game will do well.

I am glade sony is making pc games like this. True next gen shooter. And on top of that if will have a LoL business model. I <3 pc gaming much very!

With all the exclusives Sony has, if they launched an online store just like Steam, Origin and put all their playstation exclusives on it for the PC, I bet they would get a ton of sales.

I sure as hell would buy games like Uncharted, GT5, GOW 3 on the PC.

This is good news. More users = longer lifespan = more updates = better game = happy users = awesome xD

Cant wait, 2 more days till beta. Never actually played the first but doing research on the second has made me really excited for this game.

Game sure looks like It will be a blast. With that many players online I just really want to get my hands on it and see if it works.

Has anyone received a confirmation email saying they were accepted? I applied months ago and former planetside 1 players supposedly take precedence but havent heard anything yet.

Feralkitsune1838d ago

you won't for a while. The beta starts on Monday. And that will only be for the Planetside 1 players. No idea when the waves will go out for Emails. your best bet is to watch their twitters. And get a key that way. that's how I got mine.

Zha1tan1838d ago

Monday will be crunch time! will it be a broken glitchy mess or will it be the large scale FPS we have been waiting for?

A Beta = Glitchy lol

Betas are for working out bugs, so even if it goes well in terms of a beta, it will have it's issues. I just hope it does go well because so many are draw their conclusions by beta, and if it starts off messy, some people will think the game is a disaster instead of giving the development team time to fix the bugs and create the best game possible.

Really glad Planetside 2 is coming to Steam... it means a much bigger pool of people to play with.

Zha1tan1838d ago

I know what the definition of a beta is but if the game just flat out does not work at all I mean how can you do the testing?

Thats my point.

But they seem like great devs, anyone directly involved with Sony usually is.

PockyKing1838d ago

This game is one of the reasons I bought a gaming PC, lets hope it doesn't disappoint!

SITH1838d ago

Planetside 2, Arma 3, Star Trek Online, and guild wars 2 is why I also bought a gaming PC.

Feralkitsune1838d ago

Alienware....you prob payed a extra $400-600 just for that case and logo. lol

ATi_Elite1838d ago

Welcome to the Glorious PC Gaming Master Race (too bad you overpaid for your Rig)

P.M. me your specs and I'm looking forward to Planetside 2 Arma 3 and Guild wars 2 also.

Looking forward to Arma II Star Trek mod!

SITH1838d ago

Thanks for the confused admiration commonly known as hating. I saved $430 for your information. Military discount, USAA discount, and a sale was active at purchase. Hate on.

Zha1tan1838d ago (Edited 1838d ago )

Brothers we need not fight amongst ourselves, we are all one in the lording over the console peasants.

Let us join together with our superior video memory and cast out these heathens!

Feralkitsune1838d ago

And I wasn't hating on you; just saying Alienware overprices their stuff. Without your discount, would it have been a good price?

I don't care enough about your existence to hate on you; just random text on the internet.
