Sony Online Entertainment has released a companion mobile app for Planetside 2, available now for free on Android and iOS. PCGamesN reports the app allows you to voice chat with your compadres, which is kind of amazing if you’re trying to organise whatever the shooter MMO has instead of raids. It also connects to various social media and community destinations, provides information on game systems, has a news ticker, offers leaderboards and stores your character’s stats for bragging rights at the pub.

Sony Online Entertainment recently decided to compensate Planetside 2 players who had purchased useless duplicate items with Certs, the MMO’s currency. Unfortunately, PCGamesN claims something went terribly wrong, and many players have received ridiculously inflated rewards, and the leaderboards are groaning under the weight of so many overnight millionaires, kitted out with every upgrade available all at once. The latest update from SoE’s Matt Higby denies any erroneous payouts, but an earlier post mentioned that any errors wouldn’t be rolled back.

Sometimes, things don’t quite work exactly as intended in MMOs, and so things need to be adjusted. In the case of the free-to-play MMOFPS Planetside 2, one such thing is server populations.
