I like how he said it as if it wasn't an announcement and as if it was unimportant. lol... I am totally going to be playing PS1 instead of PS2.

Sometime fairly soon is promising! Can't wait. I think PS2 has pushed a lot of minds back to PS1. Amazing

They would need to give PS1 a new engine, fix all the bugs + come up with a proper way to monetize its after its F2P.

In other words, dont hold your breath. Nothing is going to happen.

From what I hear it doesn't cost much for them to run the server anymore. I think mainly because the server runs off of technology from 2003.

Its only great news if there is enough population to create fights and if they have something to combat hackers.

Personally, I'd love for them to reduce the BR again so we can't have counters to everything on the battlefield.

Exactly. And is it really going to be F2P? Meaning they are going to add cash shop? How will that work? Or are we talking something like a trial account that's just limited in BR?

The state PS2 currently is in, I would defiantly play PS1 again if there were people to play with and there isn't blatant exploit hacking going on.

Who in their right mind would play PS1? It wasn't even a good fps when it originally came out.

I rekon shove everyone up to:

BR40. CR stays as they are
Rabbit ball events - Possibly the loss of tech event which was the best thing to fight for!
Old oshur events or bring back as well
Keep on top of hackers

And if its Free just about everyone will go back to it within the first few days/weeks then the die hards will live it on!

So basically you want the game to fail within the first week? I don't see what making everyone BR 40 brings to the game other than further ruining it. Rabbit ball events are horrible. Same with Old Oshur events since SOE can never seem to get their shit together when having one.

I'd like to just have the normal, vanilla, un-fucked-with game back, please and thank you.

Also, "fairly soon" isn't exactly the most reassuring thing to here from Smedly. God knows when it will go F2P.

Tinfoil hat conspiracy theory time. I wouldn't be surprised if PS going F2P is merely a bridge to get PS shut down. I'm sure PS has been deadweight on SOE's shoulders for awhile now and they finally need some excuse to shut it down.

They'll make the game go F2P then after a few months decide that it's not a profitable asset to have at SOE and then shut the game off since it's F2P and making no money for them. Especially after they lose a shitload of money after PS2 crashes and burns.

I thought it costs next to nothing for them to run PS1 currently.

Also, I found this article yesturday. Here's an excerp from it I found interesting. So it seems they actually are going to put a cash shop in PS1, right?

FROM: Planetside 1 is going free-to-play

Concerned about the form a free-to-play Planetside might take? Don’t be. Smedley has waxed complimentary recently about the payment model of League of Legends, the MOBA with the most inoffensive and respectful free-to-play system to date.
