Re: How much does Planetside 2 really cost you?


I spent about 1200 on a new build about 2 years ago.Silly me upgraded for Bf3,which i played for about2 months.Other than that,I haven't been gaming at all,for there is nothing of quality to play.This will be the first game to stretch my computer to its limits,hopefully.
I also have 60$ set aside that I will be spending in the cash shop.

Re: How much does Planetside 2 really cost you?


My current rig is about a year old, and runs most games pretty well with high settings. I'm definitely going to upgrade my GPU soon though as it's about 2 years old. I'm not sure if doing it now is a good idea though, what with the fact that there's currently no machine that can reliably run PS2 on max settings. =/
I might wait a while until the technology is there and you don't have to use text commands to crank the game all the way up.

Re: How much does Planetside 2 really cost you?


PS2 has cost me around 2000 euro so far !

I kid, of course

Just built a shiny new gaming rig (which has been a looong time overdue), so I cannot hang the bill on PS2. But I can say that PS2 was a strong motivator to do the upgrade at this point

Win 7 ultimate
i7 3770K
Corsair H80 liquid cooler
Asus P8Z-77V Deluxe
GSkill Ripjaw16Gb RAM
Asus 680 GTX
2x 120GB SSD
WD Black 2Tb HDD
Corsair Graphite 600T case
Seasonic 760W PSU
Logitech G600 mouse

I'm sure that should keep me going for a while...

Now I just need to find a museum that will take my old system

None yet... I'll probably wait till release and then upgrade my CPU/Mobo and get a 680 or w/e the newest card out at the time is...

I'll also probably end up getting another 24" monitor so I can have a 3 monitor set up.. If its even going to be supported by PS2?

Re: How much does Planetside 2 really cost you?


I'm going to wait and see where my system is lacking before I upgrade random parts of it. lol

It runs BF3 at almost max settings at 2560x1600 so I'm hoping PS2 is similar at that res. If not, I have a 1920x1080 Acer panel I will use. I hope I don't have to spend a tgon of money to play PS2....I still want new tires for my truck (cringe).

If you are specifically upgrading for PS2, why would you not wait a few months? The game isn't even in closed beta yet, and depending on how the beta goes, the release could be pushed to the beginning of 2013. If you wait for a release date you can get the same parts cheaper, or better parts for the same price.
i bought i video card today, GTX550, for my current pc. and waiting for this same reason to buy the neccesary parts for a new rig.

Current estimate for me is about 250$ for new processor motherboard and RAM. Already got new power supply and graphics card months ago.

Here's hoping it will be enough!

Nothing yet but I'm replacing the graphics card and CPU just as soon as funds permit, so its gonna be in the region of around £400.

Don't know if it count though, because computers need upgrading from time to time, and if it wasn't PS2, it would be something else... Probably SimCity 5.

If beta really is next week though I'm just crossing fingers that it will run at all on what I have, if I get in early on the invites.... as good as it looks on full settings, its how far they let you scale it down that will determine how accessible it is to the masses.

Re: How much does Planetside 2 really cost you?


Since we're on the topic of gaming rigs. What can I run Planetside 2 on with these rigs? I'm trying to decide which to buy.

And

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Asus+-+1...&skuId=5690637

Feel free to provide a link to something better. Has to be below $900.
