PlanetSide Event

HomeLan Fed's PlanetSide Press Event Report is online, describing a bit of what went on at a recent unveiling of SOE's upcoming MMOFPS. Included are bits on a couple of things that have not been part of the game's beta testing to this point, for instance: "One of the new additions has been VoiceIP support and we got a demo of that at the PlanetSide press event. Anyone with a microphone will now be able to give voice orders to his or her squad as well as listen to what other squad members have to say. To have this system in place out of the box when the final game is released should be a welcome addition for players who are tired of punching keyboards for text chat."

3. Voice over IP May 4, 2003, 20:49 Mr. Tolerance
The Voice over IP chews up like next to nothing of my really crappy DSL bandwith- my Planetside connection is still smooth as silk when using it. Problems with it should go away when they get it all handled server side, which they stated is one of their goals.

P.S. I'm not a Planetside fanboy or anything, before anyone accuses me of that. I like the game alright, but in it's current incarnation it isn't worth my money.
