Lol, I think this right here is the reason why SOE should send out a mass email. The linked post on the PS2 launcher directs to Radar's post saying only past PS1 members receive the free 6 months. That information is wrong. Smedly tweeted PS2 and PS1 members get the access. So they really should send out a mass email to correct that mistake..

Oh, and it happened May 20th. The anniversary of PlanetSide. Took about 24 hours for everyone to receive the grant though.

Re: PlanetSide 1 Free for Six Months


then i am sure that all europe accounts have been changed to only show planetside 2, because ps2 is the only soe game left, we europeans can use with a soe account.

for all the other games we need a pro7 account now.

by the way, can anyone enter the game right now?
my ps1 launcher says, it can´t connect to the network

I do still just get into my normal SOE account, and not the PS2 account page.

Perhaps clearing your browser cache and -data might work.

Re: PlanetSide 1 Free for Six Months


I'm a little disappointed with the way they're making this free. "Oh look, we have a brand new free game out but you must still have paid a subscription fee or have had an account on the new game AT AN EARLIER DATE to play it. We can't help it if you got your new comp later and couldn't be bothered to make an account for a game you couldn't even play before to play this older game.

So... Yea. That.

It's not like everyone's going to flood the PS1 servers with the bad coding. I'd sure play it but most people can't handle the older graphics and longer respawn/weapon switching times because everything has to be fast these days.

Following that logic (which is most likely accurate) I really don't see a reason why PS1 isn't free for EVERYONE when PS2 has no subscription fee.

Simply because subscription is the only income in ps1 and SOE is a business. In order to make PS1 F2p permanently, they would need to recode it to offer ways of alternative income.
