PlanetSide 2 dev scraps paid-for buffs after fan uproar
PlanetSide 2 developer Sony Online Entertainment has canned plans to introduce paid-for buffs after fans took to Reddit to voice their disapproval.
Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley then took to Twitter to announce that the strategy had been nuked:
After reading through your comments we have decided to go back to the drawing board on implants

Fan’s feared that introducing paid buffs would veer into ‘pay-to-win’ territory and spin the game’s economy off its axis.
Meanwhile, PlanetSide 2 is heading to PS4, but players on Sony’s console will be confined to their own servers, leaving cross-play with PC gamers uncertain.
What do you make of the above?
