"We're looking at late first quarter, early second quarter [2011]," says SOE head honcho John Smedley in regard to the long-awaited PlanetSide sequel.
This is awesome. Does anyone else here plan on playing? Did anyone play the first game?

No to both questions, unless it's spectacular enough to convince me.

the first was an incredible game; incredible concept at the time, incredible community, incredible execution.

would love to see the game (successfully) updated and relaunched for this generation of hardware/gamers.

I never played the original but heard lots of good things about it when it was about.
Just one question though will there be a monthly subscription fee?

The original PlanetSide had subscription fees in line with the average MMO fees for the time. I'm guessing it'll be the same deal this time around. If it's anything like the original, it'll be money well spent.

Played the beta for it and it was awesome. Time to be Vanu again with their advance technology and hovervehicles. They did a good job with the hovervehicles being able to go over water, hate sci-fi games that make hover vehicles sink when they reach the water. I hope they don't have those stupid walkers they had in an expansion as I heard those were way the fuck overpowered, completely ruined the game.

Can't believe I've never heard of this.  Looks like a potentially awesome game. 

I remember talking to friends during BF2s heyday about how the Battlefield franchise should some day move to a full-world-scale MMOFPS, seems like somebody's already taken it a step further...

The amazing thing about PlanetSide was that everyone could jump in from any direction and join the fighting, head on or covertly. When the BFR expansion came, it just became BFRs fighting BFRs, and everyone else trying to keep the BFR on their team alive.

I hope they retain the concept of BR and CR, and keep the ability separation and training the way it was. If I can also have a Galaxy and a Liberator, then I'll be set for perpetuating the New Conglomerate master race.

I know it was so much fun. BFRs just completely ruined the game when they came around, a team with 1 BFR with no opposing BFRs could just win because they have a fucking BFR on their side. Made tanks and every other vehicle worthless.

So how big could the battles get with this game?

Wish they'd have done something like this with the BF series, would be amazing

If it is anything like planetside 1(which I only played the multiplayer beta on), it can end up massive. Not to mention the battles  could last hours and even days.

Oh, and the hover vehicles actually could go over and hover above water, unlike games like bf2142 and halo where hover vehicles sink when they get underwater.

One thing I do regret is I didn't play Vanu Sovereignty enough, I simply tryed all 3 factions to know the differences. I definitely am gonna be playing the Vanu as they got the hover vehicles and energy weapons. Although I liked the gatling gun for the Terran Republic, especially the dual gatling guns with the MAX armor.

They say at least 750 v 750 v 750 on a single continent, and that they're aiming for 1500 v 1500 v 1500.

I'm a bit disappointed with the F2P model. More cannon fodder, sure, but more cheaters as well. When PlanetSide did the free trials, and free play until BR 10 or so, cheating was more rampant than in any other game ever.

Which is why I don't listen to you unless I happen to agree.

Bigger playerbase, I just hope they don't have any fucking mechs in planetside 2.

the game will likely follow the trend, as identified above, in satisfying the wants of a 'modern' gamer, i.e. a fucking mong

saying you won't pay attention to my post unless you agree with it is, however, completely redundant

Didn't say I won't pay attention to your post unless I agree with it, I just usually disagree with you.
