Sony Online Entertainment's president gives an update on upcoming changes.
John Smedley swooped in earlier this month, reverting some unfavorable changes to memberships and announcing his desire to only keep a $15/month All Access plan to their games, doing away with the individual game subscriptions. Over the past week he's taken to Twitter, keeping everyone apprised of what's been going on.
Continue after the jump for a compilation of his updates!
January 13: Announced that "we will be able to announce the rollout schedule sometime this week for our new sub plans" and "we're working hard to get a comprehensive set of answers for them. Some things take a bit longer because they involve partners... We also have a lot of physical work to get done. Before we tell you the date we want to believe in it."
January 16: Updated that "April 2nd will be when the membership changes go into effect. Prosieben is working with us to make this work for eu customers too. Very excited. Still working on lots of details." He also confirmed to a player that a late January alpha release of EverQuest Next Landmark is still likely.
January 17: A player asked for an update about EU getting Player Studio. Smedley responded that "we continue to make good progress. We should announce something here fairly soon (1-2 weeks)." He then went on to announce "More specifically on EU Player Studio - we had to figure out the relevant tax forms and legal regulations. This has never been about anything other than annoying taxation and legal things we had to get buttoned up. It's not hard. It's not rocket science. It's just mind numbing stuff."
