Here's a trailer we missed when it was released last month, showing PlanetSide 2, SOE's upcoming MMOFPS sequel. As the "night ops" title implies, this reveals what happens in the game after the sun goes down, showing air and ground combat (thanks Cutter).

I can only assume you're referring to Diablo 3 which is not a massively multiplayer game like this and has singleplayer game functionality. If the comparison was to WoW then perhaps it would be more valid but I don't see how hes being hypocritical.
Guild Wars 2 would be a more apt comparison as it does feature some instancing but even that has very high player counts that would likely put it in the MMO category.
Now you know why clowns like Krowen are on ignore. He's an obvious troll. Or simply too stupid to grasp the difference between single-player and multi-player games and why an online connection is required for one, but not the other. Do yourself a favour and put him on ignore.
And how the fuck does buying different coloured headlights for your vehicles help you win? There is nothing pay to win about this game. Nothing. XP boosts? So what? You can still max out without ever purchasing them. Jesus, if you people are going to be so pissy and butthurt about such little things do us a favour and don't play. Take your ball and whine all the way home. More fun for the rest of us.
Cutter you shit on MWO for XP Boost and cosmetic differences in mechs. That's all I was getting at. I'm pretty interested in PS2 myself, but the consistancy of some of you guys is pretty humorous to say the least.
No I didn't. I said it was probably the worst F2P package I'd ever seen. And there are major differences between the two in price, what buying stuff means, size and scope. It's why everyone will be playing this and no one will be playing MWO.
How so? You don't NEED to spend money to do well in MWO, no one is holding a gun to your head to pay at all and still have just as much chance as anyone else to get skills/cbills, kill some mechs whatever.
Apparently PS2 is going to have certs for sale along with XP. So really, how is that even better than what MWO does with a limited time founder's program for people who are hardcore into Battletech? In all actuality, I'm more leery of people just paying for certs rather than earning them, vs having a different look to a mech chassis who's weapons still perform exactly the same to the one that had no real cash put into it.
To be honest Planetside 2 sounds far more P2W than MWO ever will.
