Sony Online Entertainment announces some changes to how premium memberships are
handled in a couple of their MMOGs, replacing players' monthly Station Cash
allowance with a choice of premium items (thanks
). There is a
2014 Membership Benefit Update on the EverQuest 2 Forums
Customer Service Announcement: Premium Membership on the PlanetSide 2 Forums
which outline similar programs for each game. Here's the explanation for
PlanetSide 2, their MMOFPS:
The week of February 3rd, 2014 we will be
making a very important change to the Premium Membership level in PlanetSide 2.
The current benefit of receiving 500 Station Cash (SC) monthly will be replaced
with a new program that allows you to select one single item valued up to 2000
SC each month. Nearly all items within the games’ Marketplace will be available
for this selection. Players Studio, bundles and additional exclusions may apply.
This new benefit must be claimed each month that you are a member as it will not
carry over to subsequent months.
We appreciate our customers, especially our valued members, and therefore are
excited to bring you this additional value.
