How Planetside 2 Will Blow the Roof Off the Massively Multiplayer Online First-Person Shooter Genre

Kotaku - When it comes to blowing the roof off a video game genre, one couldn't aim for a more low-hanging, flimsily constructed covering than that of the massively multiplayer online first-person shooter market.

The story is too old to be commented.

Nice interview.

another day another great MMO. Seems BF3 has started a revolution of high end games on the very near horizon.

I really hope this comes to the PS3. Sounds like one of the more interesting FPS games coming out.

the amount of ram you'd need for a huge open battlefield crammed with almost a thousand players suggests that this title would be next-gen for console or pc exclusive

I could see Sony building the ps4 more around MMO's. They seem to be supporting a few this gen on ps3 with Dc universe and Dust 514. Even though i think PC is the way to go for MMO's. But I wouldn't be surprised if Sony went that route..maybe even getting support from Blizzard to bring WOW over to next gen since ps3 supports mouse and keyboard i don't see why ps4 wouldn't. just a thought.

Windows 98/2000/ME/XP
Pentium III 1.6 GHz or equivalent
512 MB RAM
Direct3D compliant video card with 64MB+ RAM
DirectX 8.1 compatible sound card
Broadband Internet connection
3.5 GB hard drive space
DirectX 8.1 or greater

At any one time, the PlanetSide server hosts potentially thousands of players

@nickjkl, That was from a game released in 2003, No chance of being able to perform visually like this and with thousands of players. Hardware just wouldn't be able to handle it. Now if they toned down the graphics then maybe, but doubtful that they would.

what you say doesnt make sense

is the game already made to the point where we know it will be a downgrade

or are you just assuming

we already know its not going to look like h pc version maxed out

so idk what your getting at

Hmmm this sounds cool, although I am more interested in Dust 514 to be honest.
