Delays, delays. Always with the delays! Sony has seen the need to delay their upcoming Planetside 2 beta a whole five to seven days to this Friday or next Monday. The nerve!

Actually, the delay is apparently a technical one, require to support the huge mass of players they’re expecting. I personally wouldn’t be terribly surprised to see another delay of some sort, because what they’re trying to accomplish here will be nigh unprecedented. 1,000 players, all shooting, all fighting at once? That has to be hard to prepare for so I’m fine with the delay. Of course if they pull a Scotty and come up good early, I wouldn’t be upset, either.
