No one is going to argue the potential audience here is HUGE but I think 16 million may be a bit on the high end of expectations. We know there are tons of people excited about this hitting PS4 and we'll definitely be ready.

Posted on reddit in Over 16 million PS4 sold = possible 16 million new PS2 players/cashcows? Even only 1% will play it in the prime time, 4 continents hold ~ 5000 players, they'll need 32 ps4 servers. Smedbucks incoming, dont fuck this one up SOE. on 20 December at 20:11 Link

5k is the price point the team intends to keep this option for now (we look at it more as the non-Station Cash option) but no there aren't plans to do refunds in the event it's lowered.

We still have folks here Friday night looking at it. That isn't a promise of resolution this weekend, but we haven't put it away for the holidays.

You are kind of min maxing this which we totally expect but I'm not sure a lot of folks are going to think as hard about this. I think we are going to see a good pickup if anyone gets a 2 or 3x on Day 1.

Tomorrow we'll see what happens.

These codes expire at midnight for this reason. Today if you got a 50% you are probably not going to pull the trigger. Sunday if you get a 50%, you are a lot more likely.

The Triple SC codes are extremely rare so if folks get one, I'd be stunned if they didn't at least shell out for 500 SC.

I completely agree with you we'd push more units with a lower price point. My advice in this case is to wait for a sale which will happen at some point. You aren't some kind of peasant for not buying something at it's launch price point. Everything has a value to you personally and you shouldn't pay more than you are comfortable with.

My job is to respond and engage on things we do and I'm very aware of the community reaction. I'm also aware of how many of these are being sold so we have to combine those together.

Currently that equals "it's too early to tell."

But yes I have tons of nerve. Can't do this job without them.

I can't promise I'll ever post anything terribly exciting.

The "latency" value we show on the screen is not the same value as your ping to the gateway.

Right but if you are in Russia itself these are region locked. If you have a friend you trust they could pick one up for you and it could be redeemed in game but yeah it's not going to let you purchase one.

The codes are good until midnight and if you don't need SC, then you don't need SC. You can participate in the other PS2 sales next week.

These bundles will not work on the Innova version of the game no.

WoW charges $10 for a name change, and $25 for a server transfer. World of Tanks is 2500 gold. PS2's pricing is a bit high but still in the same ballpark as other games.

And to be fair, changing your name in a pure PvP game is a lot more impactful/significant than changing your name in a PvE game. I would bet the $25 tag is to discourage its use, not as a money grab, for much the same reason Blizzard's server transfer is $25. All of these things are effectively a few lines in a database, or moving a record from one database to another. If they wanted a money grab it'd guess it would probably be more in the $10 range where it's more affordable and likely to be purchased.

I don't consider myself a moron but I do need to point out most retail games are $60.

This is obviously an option to provide folks who may not have the name they wanted after a period of time. We aren't making a big deal out of it and if folks don't want to change their name there is no obligation. Some of you have taken advantage of it already.

Hi. Can you provide me with a bit more information?

  • Are you having the problem on all zones (continents)?
  • Are you having the problem only in big battles, or does it also happen in an empty area?

Thanks!
