PlanetSide Next Nears has word from Sony Online Entertainment's John Smedley on upcoming MMORPG plans. He tells them The Agency is still expected for PC and PS3 later this year, and says PlanetSide Next is due in the first half of this year, saying it should be late first quarter or early second quarter. He also tells them that in addition to their announced upcoming projects (The Agency, PS3 Free Realms, PlanetSide Next, and EverQuest Next), SOE also has "a lot" of unannounced projects in the works.

there's Firefall.. but too many idiot jackass carebear, FPS-stupid dumbasses are looking to RPG or do PvE only/mainly content in a larger FPS.

Well... I'm an idiot jackass carebear when it comes to RPGs.

But PVE in an online FPS doesn't make sense to me... just as much as PVP in an RPG doesn't make sense to me.

I'm talking strictly balance issues here... An RPG will never be a "level playing field" for PVP due to melee vs. ranged, character stats / skills, and Uber Items that only with people that have "no life" can collect... where as with FPS's... it's ALWAYS ranged combat, twitch-based-skill, and anyone can "scoop up" the items (Big Guns / Armor) if they're quick / lucky enough.

So, my point is... I prefer to PVP in a shooter far more than an RPG.
