Re: H1Z1 and the cannibalization of Planetside 2


Zombie Post-Apocalypse is a dime a dozen, the PS2 crowd loses nothing but tourists. That crowd will enjoy H1Z1 for 3 months then return to there DayZ and Fallout 3 hobbies.

The only attention H1Z1 will get, that PS2 had months ago (or even half-a-year ago) is the flavor of the month gamers aka Tourists flocking to what's shiny.

What we have now is the relative "Golden Age" of PS2 as far as the pop goes, It will rise and fall with tourists flocking to the latest patches and consequently getting bored with it because of the immutable fact that no game holds your attention forever. It well never be at a point of "omg the games dead", NOT until PS3 is announced.

There is no "cannibalization" and PS2 is not dead, no matter how much you believe the conspiracy nuts. There's no fact that proves otherwise beyond shadow of a doubt. The money is still in PS2 for SOE as a business.
