Planetside monthly subscription going up by $2

Sony Online Entertainment announced that the cost of playing Planetside is going up by $2.00 USD. For those still fighting it out in the MMO-shooter four years after the game premiered, consider this reasonable inflation. The cost as of April 2, 2007 will be $14.99 a month.

Although we're sure that there aren't as many people playing Planetside as there were when the game first came out, it is nice to see that SOE is continuing support. Although it's very rare to see an increase in an MMOs monthly subscription, it certainly sounds like this action was done to allow the game to continue. They could have just unceremoniously canceled the game like EA did with Earth and Beyond years ago. Goodnight sweet Jenquai, we hardly knew ye.
