I've been refreshing for the past two hours straight. still don't see it. maybe I'll go for another hour if F5 doesn't break.

It will probably not show until after the Europe launch.

I've been in a couple of GAP betas before but this would be the coolest one for sure.

I'm gonna pimp my apartment out so fly that Engadget will do a story on it.

home is where the heart is... wait... no, nvm. Sony just took home.



While I hate the "hipster" thing going on with the emote stuff and the character designer, this is going to turn out really uniquely all depending on how well sony supports its community. If they have more constant fixes than Microsoft, things may look better. Also, pricing for premium content may not be bad since so far sony has had good prices on their downloadable content.

WHAT I want to know, and that no one has really brought up...

Is there going to be servers???

I mean, are you really going to have millions of people in the Lobby walking around?

yes, it's just going to be one big cluster Fuck. :lol:

nah, someone mentioned that they saw a server list or something indicating that there are servers during the presentation.

Looks like it'll just be MMO-style...which is cool. The only fun part of an MMO is the lobby :lol:

I'm just joking about sitting there for 7 hours hitting refresh. but yeah, I've been checking it regularly.

I wonder what the catch will be to sign up.

I was thinking they'd do it like Guild Wars.

There is only one server on GW (I think...) but you can go to different Home Towns or Auction houses, like 1-200.

But, if they were to have something like that, a whisper comman is esential. So you can tell your friend, "Meet me in Lobby 42".

i read somewhere that there are going to be servers and if one fills up you'll just spill over to the next one. Not sure if you can choose what server you want to log onto or whatever, but the article also said that they're implementing some kind of system to get all your friends and stuff on the same server.

i think i read this stuff on ign

Yeah there will be servers, but they are smart servers so My guess is certain regions of the world will be on different ones then others and you will generaly be on the same one as your friends.

Someone else had this on the PS site:

"Q: What is the timeline for rollout?

Closed Beta (appx. 15,000 users): April - August

Open Beta (appx. 50,000 users): August - October

Service Live (50,000+): October"

Found the info HERE.

Grr>>>Misclick :)

It also says stuff like there will only be 64 People to a lobby, but there will be a "multitude of lobbies". And something about having to pay to attend certain events. Pretty good FAQ.

New dev site with more peeks into the info.

More Q+A from the PDF file:

Q. How large is the download?
A. We're aiming for the initial download to be less than 500MB. Subsequent downloads will hopefully integrate a streaming method that makes them neglible.

Recommend everyone take a look at it.

of course they'll have a whisper command. I'm guessing it's going to have almost the exact same functionality as any MMO, though probably a bit less complex.

xbox live look crap

SCEA and SOE are developing MMORPG(something similiar to ffxi) style online service for PS3 right now. It will have online pack which it comes with HDD and the online software. You can go online and chat with people like mmorpg style. Your stats will have the list of games you have and scores(or ranks) for each game, and other great things. And if you want to look for someone to play online for certain game, you have to go to this certain area(or town) for that specific game or the game will automatically takes you to that town. Sony thinks "hyper links" technology is a history. They want to create a "virtual world" for PS3 online service where people can actually interact eachother like mmorpg style. There are more great details, but this is all I can get for now. I'm not expecting you to believe me

So what do you guys think of the "auction" feature?

I mean if offer a nice way for users to import items, could be interesting way to make some dollars.

I personally plan on making a lot of money by selling RoboCop stuff to CheapyD. :D
