This game does sound really interesting. Hopefully Sony will show some gameplay soon.

If it's only 20 or 30 dollars, I'm buyin.

Taking bets on how long before the a$$hats at Fox news create a report on how game companies are teaching children to become bank robbers.

Cross Platform?
First ever sony made shooter on pc? nice!

ArmrdChaos2784d ago

So....does that mean it is not an exclusive?

cyborg69712784d ago

Kinda. Think of it as a 360 exclusive where you can get on console and pc.

Wardog13682784d ago (Edited 2784d ago )

Sony developed planetside. It's not their first shooter on PC.

Anyway, this game looks pretty cool. Add that to my watch list.

Persistantthug2783d ago

That would be cool, but I didn't see that.

Anyone know?

I was disappointed with DC universe online when i realized it wasn't cross platform.
