That's why I vote we go with the year 7811.

Interesting find...but why would they do that when they work so hard NOT to reveal dates - we know how software dev goes...

12X7-YZ11 I think we all agree on the red.

X: Appears to be a 3. It is not closed on the left side.
Y: This is far more similar in appearance to the seven, than the two. Notice how it doesn't have the bottom tail.
Z: Hard to say for sure, but I'm leaning towards an 8. It seems to have a slight pinch in the middle.

Ah... reading blurry, pixelated numbers.

It's like trying to identify ink blots.

I like the concept of it being 12-07-2011 (slashes through 0's, bottom of Y being blurred out and lost on zoom in.) It might be a harmless and self-imposed let down, but it beats waiting without a date to look forward to at all!

But no, you know what I think? I think we need a second opinion:

http://www.planetside-universe.com/m...ts/tpblog2.jpg

A.D.(wth? I.D. maybe?) 1257-2211 is what I get from there, and I have no reason to believe the numbers randomize from weapon to weapon, or from side to side even. Could also be A.D./I.D. 1253-2211. But comparing the two images, the only real difference from either side is that the numbers are on a sort of plate/sticker in the linked image, where as the OP's image they are not. Also, the OP's image the lettering is U.I.

Fascinating. That'd be pretty kick ass if that turns out to be an important date.

I would actually say that X is indeed a 0, as is Z. Y does look more like a 2, but the bottom ride is small, but does come out with some sharpening.

I believe the date to be 7th December 2011 but this could have been to do with the original graphics update.

Now, just t make sure that these numbers have in-fact been added by the artist i took the time to enhance the trailer footage of the same weapon found in this artwork: http://www.planetside-universe.com/m...hp?img_id=1622

Trailer Screenshot:



Now using the "Uncrop" function i managed to see that there is no numbers on the gun in game meaning it was deliberately put there!



Now i know you can see a yellow blob but this is a different colour to the text in the artwork making the artwork more likely deliberate.

Damn I need more news about news about news about the beta. BTW This was a troll; but I hope we get to play something soon.

But you're looking at the OTHER side of the weapon at a lower MIP level ^^

Even if you check the original screenshot, and look at the same weapon in the other guy's hand, it does not seem to have a serial number imprinted on it.

That's what I see, too. Looks like UI (Unique Identifier) 1207 2011.

In any case, I'm going to get a big cherry pie to celebrate the occasion, and on the 7th if it turns out they don't drop any new info or announce the beta, I'll still have a delicious cherry pie to enjoy.
