News Comments > PlanetSide 2 Next Month

Horrible news, when I first joined beta, I was having tons of fun... They have stripped all the fun from this game, and they can't find a medium in any design goal they attempt.... Smedley said this game will launch when its AWESOME, and right now, its the biggest joke on the net, I don't even boot it up anymore. They can't even get the aux resources working so they just scrapped em. I'm calling flop and quick bailout here... The forums have 90% hate control. The game is being so ruined by the need for them to cash on the unlocks. They are probably milking the name and running as fast they can to the bank after realizing they can't balance nothing, and adding cash shop means even more problems. This game has become one of the dumbest fish int he barrel shooters I have ever seen, with things to fool you that's true. The vehicle combat is pointless, while is vehicle spammy now due to total coverup of all the complaints, once real play begins, you'll see there is better alternatives to worthless vehicles not even needed.

Forgot to mention its nothing like Planetside... Just a zone control game that has no meaning, ironically just like 85% of the toys.

I currently work at Best Buy. I can confirm this is correct. We actually outwardly advertise it to people when they call in. We do price match online retailers including newegg.com tigerdirect.com and amazon.com We are an extremely profitable company regardless of what the negative media likes to paint. We will be just fine and we're really going in the right direction retraining our entire staff on doing whats best for the customer first. Best Buy will be around for a very very long time.

Huh, that sounds pretty great then if there's little hassle. If I want some hardware that happens to be both at NewEgg and Best Buy I guess I can save on shipping and day of delivery time by driving over to Best Buy.

You still shop at NewEgg? not the same place anymore...
Amazon blows newegg away now with Prime, and I hate to say that because Amazon is helping put my company out of business.
You can get next day delivery even on a saturday from $3.99 weekday $8.99 saturday. and even same day delivery on some items.. yup same day

(edit certain areas, like LA, Chicago, etc)

They are dead, they will give a great reputation as all companies do as they are trying to sell... Look at the Jewel food store chain.. Same thing, new lower prices, blah blah blah, they are hurting... And you hurt for a reason.. You suck at what you do, you call yourself Best Buy which is further than the truth after your initial 2 year entry... You took basic items like dsl filters that cost $1.99 and started charging $15-$20 for these little items, which left no reason to go to your store. And everyone in the world knows about your $400 tv and $60 for a $5 cable scam. Top that with what the reviewer said below and good luck rebranding other another name. Consumers are starting to see the scam of a rebrand after failure routine.

Here's how I feel about Best Buy after I use to LOVE the place. If someone said lets go shopping, and Best buy was on that list.. I would NOT even go.. I cant even stand walking into that place anymore.

Here comes communism.... Now we are being dictated what we can use on our computers...

As I said... Slippery Slope hysteria. Now we are at communism.

I'm sorry you sit at home and play with your putz all day, but I'm out there in the industry watching every manufacturer monopolize with distributors in the world to control and force feed consumers. They do it to jack up the prices. See, the MFR's buy out the competition and rape their consumers who NEED to buy these parts over cost to replace... While their grow their own brand...

For the past 2 years, since you obviously are not paying attention, is that all the major distributors in the world have just shifted, and gone from having MANY DISTRIBUTORS to a monopolistic single distributor and prices have rose 50% as operating costs have reduced during this time dramatically (even fuel prices). Easily seen by Fed Ex and UPS announcing a 15 cent fuel surcharge price drop.

Now its obvious and you are seeing the giants of tech prepare to do the same... Marketplace = monopoly = control over choice = communism..

Don't you recall the days you could buy your own cable tv receiver? The days you could choose which part you put in your computer? Well sir, soon you won't have that choice, you'll have a price and you'll have to pay it with no option. Other than maybe choosing a new brand, which will be choked out of the market by the controlling dominant force.. We had rules against monopolies for reasons...

Hysteria? The only thing hysterical around here is the whole world sitting back letting this happen....

Government don't care no more.. They don't protect the people. The money is gone and government can only make money if they are spending it... So guess what, bribe bribe bribe accepted. Now Capitalistic country now illegally monopolized becomes communist and everything we died for has been stolen by our forefathers.

The basis of the accusation was based of yesterdays Microsoft dude saying he looks forward to being more like Apple. Apple was always a communist run company.. You had one router to choose from. You paid their price. You had 1-2 size hard drives to choose from, you paid their price... You had one type of memory to buy and you paid their price. If your power supply died, your fucked, you can't run down the street, you need to call Apple and pay their price. Yes good support, who wouldn't give you good support paying $350 for a $80 hard drive equivalent to the PC world. WORLD OF SUCKERS and they are sucking you dry.

Sorry, won't ever be buying any future Windows OS, they can take they're pathetic upcoming failure attempt of making a "monopolistic" retail shop out of their OS and simply GO F**K themselves...

Support this and soon your dinner rolls will be dictated to you.

Great, they are having to fly under the radar to reduce the flak from their original consumers. They have to find new ones because the old ones hate their guts..We don't care Ubi, we will be happy when you make 0 games and are a part of history, which you will soon be. We are enjoying the scene of your gasping for air.

Still play BF3 daily, Armored Kill isn't really my cup of tea but we'll see.

I think I'm the only one that doesn't care about Arma3, I found Arma 2 to be a clunky mess and all people did was play co-op, Day Z is a different story.

Ugh, what? No one played co-op/multiplayer because Arma 2 was a sellout to entice kiddies into the thermal sniper scoped weapons and flying fighters on strings... Their engine was a horrid animated mess.
Their game modes did not transfer well due to the game changing from iron sights to scopes... Arma was a infantry simulator and fantastic close quarters, Arma 2 was a poor decision. . This ranged warefare BS and no update to animations why Arma 2 failed, (not to mention the poor choice of marines, which took away the scout chopper at launch).

Their dev team when it comes to game modes was nothing short of pathetic.... They ruined what they had in Evolution with a piss poor paid port. The campaigns was a guess at why their game failed in numbers Seeing what DayZ brought might make them relook at their business model. And come up with some entertainment of what is a massive piece of sandbox awesomeness, that is missing a few tools, which they may have now implemented.. The new interface changes to simplify things looks tons better, and what I have seen in the VBS2 1.6 changes 2.0 coming out with the better editors. If this gets ported into Arma 3, it will be nothing short of amazing and can dominate the genre and outsell COD. There is endless game modes in my mind for A3, from what I have seen... Dayz will be a flash in the past.
