I would be tickled if they announced Vista/7 support. Last I knew, getting it working on an x64 version of those OSes was impossible. My BFR is probably quite rusty.

You know what would be funny? If the big announcement was the shutting down of planetside.

I'm not saying I want that. I just think it would be hilarious.

Per their community rep, this is NOT an annoucement to shut down the server. It is their 7th bday at the same time, so hopefully it something kewl. I might resub just for this :)

Raijinn from SOE posted this on the forum thread:
"I can say at this time it's not related to the servers being taken offline."

Countdown to extinction... and can't say I'll miss it horribly, should that be the case.
A sequel - a well made such - would be pleasant surprise though. Hopefully one that would address hacking/botting issues that the current game is suffering from.

Perhaps even a console/pc cross-platformer? Yes please.

Of course, Raijinn's comment can be interpreted as "The servers are being taken offline but this isn't related to that" ;)!

I imagine they're either building up to some 7th birthday shindig or more likely an announcement about the sequel. If they are working on a sequel followers of the Agency may advise Planetsiders not to get too excited too soon.

I've been lied to. Abandoned for months because the developers were all off doing some Everquest junk. Had my favourite game all but obliterated because some twit thought BFR's were a good idea. And worst of all, I paid money for Core Combat.

Yet despite all the dissapointment and frustration, this jaded retired veteran of the Auraxian wars can't help but feel a tiny flame of excitement at this announcement.

An announcement about the Sequel then presumably, but I thought that was in pre production...

If Sony decides to dig up this coffin and open it they better be sure they do it right. Otherwise Sony will lose the grain of sand worth of respect they have left. Im as excited as passing a huge turd in the toilet but we will see.

I'm all for it. Another PlanetSide would be something to look forward to, no doubt about it.

My wish is, PS1 goes F2P in preperation for PS2. God I loved that game once,a nd if it was free, I'd be back on it like a bee on honey.

PS1 going F2P would be brilliant marketing for PS2 because it would get people pumped for it.

I played Planetside on release till a few months after the release of core combat. Over the years the free play promotions always brought me back and tempted me to resub, but the lack of a solid dev team always tipped me over into the pass column. Planetside is a fun game and still has provides an unmatched MMO experience. Before Sony decimated the dev team and pulled away CS support, hacking was fairly rare and dealt with very quickly. Exploits and loop holes rarely stayed open and players who abused them got banned. Honestly if left alone I think Planetside would still have 4 active servers and a dedicated fan base.
