Regarding the PlayStation 3, it is not our wish to release a simple conversion of the Windows version in its current state, but rather an update that includes all the improvements we have planned. For that reason, we have made the difficult decision to delay the release of the PlayStation 3 version beyond the originally announced date of March 2011.
I predict many fans may begin rampaging? o.0
Rampaging? why because when the game finally launches on PS3 theyll have a complete and playable game?
I'm pretty sure if you asked any PS3 player if they'd rather wait another 8 months for the finished game, or get in now on the unfinished game and play for free for the next 8 months, we'd all say the same thing.
PS3 is getting an enormous shaft. We wait, wait, wait, wait, get no beta, wait, wait, all while PC users get an indefinite free play session. That's it for me. Unless SE throws a HUGE bone to us PS3ers now, I'm not in. PS3ers kind enough to buy this game need something huge to offset the free 6 months all PCers are getting.
Everyone keeps saying how "lucky" us PS3ers will be to get a finished game. If we're so lucky, how come you all are still playing? If its such torture that we PS3ers are lucky to wait, then why don't you all quit too? I realize a lot of people have. But its just annoying how many times I have to hear how "lucky" I am for not getting involved in this mess. I'd rather have the option, then decide for myself, then have everyone else decide for me.

PC users didn't get sh*t for free. We paid anywhere from $60 to $100 for the privilege of beta testing this game for you PS3'ers. Right now that stands at $20-$30 a month we've paid so far for those "free" months.
So cry me a river if you think you deserve special treatment.
PS3 users are also going to pay those prices for the game PLUS the additional costs of paying every month. You guys will probably only start to pay a monthly fee shortly before or after the PS3 release. Though you guys got a clunky start, you're still playing the game for free and will continue to do so through the fixing of the game.
Except PC users are not playing an even close to finished game. When the game is finished, they will be paying the same as PS3 users. And more than likely, PC users will be paying subs while the PS3 users are enjoying their beta, so it all evens out.
As far as the Ps3 users crying about the PC users being "ahead of them" as far as levels and ****, the fact is by the time this all gets done, new PS3 users will likely outnumber any remaining PC users who didn't give up and move to new and/or just better games 10 to 1. So there most likely won't be that many people "ahead" of them.
