As much as I'd love to be in Closed Beta, Zarparchian Law states otherwise.

The rest of you will get in fine though... why? For the same reason.

Well, looking at the community, we've got nearly 500 on the PSI forum, 100 or so people on this forum (with some amount of crossover), and maybe a few dozen more in a few little forums. Then you've got #planetside on Gamesnet, where we've got maybe 30-40 people at a time, most of them who are on one of these two forums. So that's maybe 550 hardcore forum whores. Then you count people who've been following and not whoring, and you get maybe another few hundred, rounding out to a thousand. Then you count the two thousand n00bs who read the news on Gamespot and spread it around, and you have the three thousand people who've already applied for beta.

Your numbers are WAY off.

Look at SWG, it garnered 250,000 beta applicants. That is INSANE.

Now, Take all the FPS whores out there (hehehe) and then toss in some RPG people... this game is on mmorpgcafe ya know, thats where I found it.

I bet they have upwards of 20,000 applicants (not counting dupes btw) to sort through.

I wouldent go that high yet, although its highly possible.

Nothing can really be compared to anything that has a star wars theme.. there are a bazillion rabid SW fans out there who want anything with the Lucas seal of approval

Actually, I think that number came from a dev in IRC yesterday. More later, when I have time.

That was the one thing that surprised me. I thought I was sitting pretty with 640 megs, but even that is only a mear 128 more then the Min requirments. I wonder what the recomended ammount of Ram is.

I bet the sys req will go down after beta.. they always have programs running in the the back of beta.

true.

I doubt that the processor requirements will go down any.

I'd rather see them have Min system requirements that allow for the game to be played with ease, then go with the bare min it takes to run the game like ass.

Take T2 for example. When I got it I met the Min sys requirements, and the game ran like shit. Most of the features in the Lobby area didn't work, switching between tabs was painfully slow. The whole time I was blaming Serria, and the Game for being crappy until I saw it running on a friends PC and everything looked great and ran fine.

So for the first few weeks i had the game I thought it ran like shit, but it turned out it was really my comp that ran like shit.

Bottom line ir that Realistic Min requirements = Happy Customers. If you tell them it will run on less, they'll get pissed off when it doesn't run well on less.

You missed my point. The game will be running beta programs behind the game. Thats why the system req's are so high now. I bet they will go down for release. Otherwise they will loose a lot of business.

Geez....


do you really think they'll be enforcing the 64meg vid thing for the beta? or maybe they'll need someone just shy of that on vid but cool on all the other spec?

I meet and/or surpass all the requirements except that one right now (@32meg vid instead of 64meg) mainly due to lack of funding.

am I a screwed pooch?

I don't know if the requirments will go down.

I think Sony has learned from there MMO experiences and are thinking of like 4-6 years in the future.

I think that they want to produce a game now that will still be competative in 4 years.

(I think EverQuest is limited by the fact that they don't want to alienate their customers who have been playing for years with an 8 MB graphics card)
