Behind-the-Scenes with the PlanetSide 2 Devs

PlanetSide 2 devs discuss their optimization effort "Operation: Make Faster Game!"

Today we've got a behind-the-scenes look at how Sony Online Entertainment approaches game optimization for the MMOFPS PlanetSide 2. In the first part of this cheeky video series "Operation: Make Faster Game!", members of the team discuss specifics of what they're working on. For instance, someone mentions that "input processing on the HUD" is causing a delay of 0.3/0.4 milliseconds.

If you're a fan of board meetings and lament the lack of a "Work Sim" genre, this video is for you. Sarcasm aside, it's always entertaining to hear a bit of game dev lingo thrown around.

Unfortunately ....Sony's decision to allow cross realming is destroying the game.So much much much potential...and Sony injects the corrosive effect of allowing players to switch realms in a second, to play the "I WIN" faction.

How long till others just say enough....and the want me to pay money for this experience ?

Improving game performance is like giving aspirin to a patient with cancer.
