Yeah, it's basically just an added means of promotion (and basically they're selling a temp subscription in stores), since a lot of consumers still browse stores for games (not all gamers download all games :P).

And it might help with the download/patching speed for some people.

Will this mean that ps2 can be considered in the same breath as pay 2 play games like cod and bf? Because im tired of this moniker "best f2p game available".

Is this coming out in the US? I don't own any SMG's so it actually wouldn't be a bad deal for me to get those plus the other extras.

i don't know, the articles only mention EU but they don't say anything about it being exclusive, and i don't see why not, so i guess so.

The box:




http://www.amazon.co.uk/Deep-Silver-...rds=planetside

Also notice it says both Station Cash and Seven Cash. So you can probably also redeem it if you have an (US) Station Account

I think i'll buy it. For the price of 1000 SC you get, 1000SC, A gold plated SMG for all factions (I do however already have the normal one) and two boosts. One 7 day boost to keep, and one 3 day boost to give to someone else.

You don't actually buy the game, you buy the ingame items and the station/seven cash.

Ultimate Question... if we recruit someone and that player buys this "Retail Box", redeeming the code, does that counts toward reaching the treshold requested for them to be effectively Recruited by you?

hard one i know

Hmm, good question. I would say it would not count actually since technically they didn't "top-up" in-game but can always double check.

Thanks, would be much appreciate, because recruiting people now is already hard, and on top of that if you have them buy that Retail box (which is AMAZING) but no gain in the recruiter status then it's all in vain
