"For me, it's such a compelling genre for anybody who's played it," SOE Creative Director Matt Higby said about PlanetSide 2's niche. "But that's the thing. There's not a lot of people who have played a MMOFPS, but the people who have are addicted." Hibgy sat down with us at PAX East to promot...

With the cold war in PlanetSide 2 quickly turning hot, potential players have to ask themselves: Which side will they join?
