The fact that the tank has New Conglomerate decals plastered all over it might confirm your suspicion

I smell a funny scent on the wind...

What it is, I cannot say, but somehow, somewhere, something is telling me four words: cash shop and smedbucks.

@Dril I agree with you. They look alot better compared to PS. They are not state of the art but then ageain you have to understand PS was always about HUGE 400+ battles breaking out and taking place.

You simply can not have the best graphics and huge battles like that in REALTIME.

You sure it's Planetside 2?

Looks exactly like Planetside's graphics..... Does it even use DX9? lol.

@Miffy Ok go look up screenshots for the original PS and then tell me it looks the same. Did you even ever play it?

@jamiefluk

I did play it until they ruined it with BFRs and only subscribing back now so I get into beta. Wish I didn't after seeing that pic....

I mean the graphics aren't an improvement, this is proof enough.

Doesn't look out place, it's like something we could see in Planetside lol.

@Miffy Are you really serious or just somehow visually impaired? There is a very obvious large difference in both texture and model detailing from the original Planetside and this tank.

@Miffy http://wiki.planetsidesyndicate.com/index.php?title=Image:Vanguard_threefourths.jpg Yeah, no improvemnet what soever. You have some serious SOE hate my friend. Yeah, I dont like the design choices they made with BFRs and other aspects in PS. But theres no need to write this off before its even begun, let alone be a troll about it

@jamiefluk

Graphically they both look like they're on the same engine. They both don't use DX9 or above, both have low poly and textured models. The only difference is the new tank as a tiny bit more detail....

So yeh it doesn't look any better considering the first was 2003 and now we're in 2011.

Quite cleary the new NC Vanguard model. Gfx look like a significant improvement on the old ones. I spent many hours in Auraxis fighting for the NC, I cant wait for this!

This sentence in my opinion says it all "John Smedley, the President of Sony Online Entertainment, is a big tease."

Great news... but I tipped this one as soon as it was posted on Smedley's twitter. Do you guys even check the tip section? If you don't or if it's not working, then what's the whole point!?

@cowmooflage Cow, if you mean the red TIP button form up in the right-hand corner of the site, we absolutely do check the tip box (because of the way it's set up, it's impossible to ignore, plus, why would we... we get good stuff that way, and we like crediting tipsters!). However, we didn't get any tips through the tip box on this topic in the last couple of days. You're the second person who's mentioned sending in a tip that most definitely didn't arrive, and while we have gotten SOME tips (proving it's working at least some of the time), it's very possible that something is busted preventing it from working all of the time.

I have a hunch here... are you by chance using Chrome?

I used to tip stuff quite often for the old site using another account. I don't think it was a verified one at the time and since I couldn't remember the password I made this one to post this comment. However by filling in what I think was my old username and e-mail, the TIP thingy confirmed that the tip was succesfully sent to you.

I'm not using chrome, I'm on Firefox. ;)

"Is Smedley teasing us with the idea that we can battle in tanks in PlanetSide Next? We can only hope so..."

You can already battle in Tanks in the current Planetside. Each faction has their own version of a tank.

This is too similar to the current vehicle, I'd like to see some new designs. It's a fricking Sci-Fi shootout, so why do the tanks have to look like they are Bradleys? At least the Vanu faction has a hover tank.
