Well for some at least....

This morning John Smedley, the President of Sony Online Entertainment, tweeted that the beta was indeed a go for release today, stating "beta at 2pm. Flagging has started. This is for current PS1 subscribers and All Access members. PS1 vets later."

The flagging is currently only being done to accounts that are current active Planetside 1 subscribers and those that purchased an all access Sony pass. It has been reported that inactive PS1 players will be getting invites in the second wave and those that have not played PS1 and simply signed up for the beta will come "shortly after" based on demands.

Smedley also confirmed that there would be a Steam version of Planetside 2 come release, stating in a tweet "Planetside 2 will be on Steam. Yes it will".

You can check out the official Planetside 2 site here http://www.planetside2.com/ for more information.

We are incredibly excited for Planetside 2 here at MMOBomb. What gets you most excited about Planetside 2?

Why do people think that Alpha and Beta are just passes to get into the game early? News flash, it's a testing period. The game in Alpha and Beta is often no where NEAR ready for launch. You're their for one reason, to find all the little bugs and glitches and report them. If you're in Alpha and/or Closed Beta you have no right to b*#ch and moan about glitches and bugs. It doesn't mater if they aren't fixing the bugs fast enough to please you. If you want a more polished game, wait until launch. If it's still super buggy and glitch at that time, THEN you have a right to complain about it.

As long as it'll come to Steam, I'm good. Got tons of other games to keep me entertained until PS2 comes out.

I really hope ur right and im one of those lucky fellows that get to enjoy the game to its fullest believe me man i sure hope its possible but i mean i fortunatly have a back up if this game fails.... fire fall :D

I feel you man, Trust me. I pretty much obsessed over this game, and yes, they put a new patch. it changed nothing. I was so excited for the patch too. It does work. Who knows though. You could be on of those lucky people that post and say, " Hi guys. I dont see what bugs you guys are talking about" You COULD be one of those 20% of players. Good Luck.

I would be inclined to believe you there but, Sony hasnt fixed any of the bugs the entire time Ive been in testing. One..game breaking bug hasnt been addressed since it was found out and they are going to open this crap up to more players????? really?? You fix nothing nothing players a telling you that is wrong with the game then yiou open it up for more players to get jaded. No, Im not standing behind well, its Alpha defense, cuz Sony doesnt give a Crap.

Ive been in this for awhile now, Buggy, unplayable piece of garbage. Sony NEEDS to step the freak up and fix the client or this game will fail hard.
