Well, Spork just posted on the OF confirming the article as legit (not a hoax), but he didn't give any new info yet.

edit: HOLY CRAP but they just posted a ton of other stuff!

We've enjoyed a substantial technology advantage recently, which we've ruthlessly exploited to great gain.
WHAT?! Where?! In what game?!

Yet again, they got the gold mine, and we got the shaft.

Remember when the Devs used to post concept art?

Like they did with the Liberator and Skyguard when they came out? Yeah... old schoolers nod your heads...

Actually, that's where you're wrong.

The US Military is CURRENTLY examining how to design, create, field, and use soldier-operated exosuits. That would be at the very least, a frame that a soldier puts on, somewhat like in Aliens where Ripley fought that beast in her yellow construction robo-frame.

Add to that the immense boost to a soldier's strength and endurance, the possibility of being able to run at average speeds of 30mph (not kph like in-game), the ability to strap on and functionally use heavy weapons such as fifty caliber machine guns one on each arm, and the ability to run and jump large distances or jump from a certain height (like 30 feet) without becoming a splatter...

Then factor in protection methods such as putting a soldier in a cockpit rather than wearing a suit of partial-plate armor...

... And add 3k years.

And you've got a MAX. Still, I could see a Mech coming out of that program.

Holy moses, I leave for the Tech Museum for a day and all this happens while I'm away. Gadzooks.

Well the chances that this is a hoax is close to bubcus, a company such as Sony would not play tricks with its loyal customers (unless it's April fools).

Wow, it's good to know that MAX suits are getting the buffs they deserve. It's also good to know that the vehicles are getting upgrades as well. But this thread is on BFRs! Give me info on BFRs! *roar*

Mechs can be more maneuverable than tanks. Their size allows them to conquer mountans (but maybe not mountain ranges). At the moment though, that's about all we know. No other information has been given concerning running speed, jumping ability, or really anything else to determine the maneurverability of the BFR. I was just making an assumption.

Man, I think I'll be recerting unimax again after the patch goes through. The buffs might make the gameplay more fun.

You think this is an attempt by Sony to get our minds off of the BFRs and onto something more immediate?

Of course, at this stage of PS most ground vehicles don't last that long as it is, and once a BFRs shields go down I'm willing to bet that they are sitting ducks.
Im a little concerned that the article mentioned it would take several flail shots to even scratch the shield which is a little insane if you ask me. Id like to see what the devs come up with on this one, especcially how you aquire these tthings, and how you keep them from becoming so abundant.

Doesn't it also say in the article that small arms fire could go through the shield, and a couple bolt driver shots could take the shield generator out?

Man, I'd like to be that flail that takes down the BFR's armor, think of the massive XP you would get *drool*

Well someone suggested massive NTU drain, and i like that idea. Also in the car i was thinking if they had a 30 min timer or something to that effect. If someone lost one, it wouldnt be immediatelly back up.

I think people shoud wait a while until they release more actual info abou tthem before throwing themselves into hateing them utterly and completely. This is why devs attempt to keep secrets.

On another note, and also refencing some Warhammer 40K info:

Titans: Big uber tough killing machines that have shields and are almost impervious to small arms fire.

Perhaps to counter titans, you would need titan killing tanks?

Enter the heavy or super heavy tanks to PS. Currently the Van, Mag and Prowler are listed as medium tanks. Sooooo basically this coulod usher in new tanks down the road. In 40K 2 superheavy tanks have a great chance of killing an equal pointed titan. They have thick ass armour and hard core guns. Im thinking some massive med/heavy tank/Air/Walker fights may be seen soon.


Just my opinions on the matters.
