I'm currently in the Planetside 2 beta.
In terms of the gameplay, it's definitely decent but I can't say that it's anything special.
So far it basically feels like Battlefield 3. The only thing it has going for it over BF3, imho, is the HUGE and persistent map. Aside from that,
whenever I play it I really just feel like I want to go play BF3 instead.
As far as hardware necessary, i've seen people complaining of poor framerate in chat.
Comments like "wow this game has such poor FPS for how bad it looks."
The game certainly isn't BEAUTIFUL but that fact doesn't really get in the way of gameplay.
I have no problems whatsoever with everything maxed, but that's on a watercooled highly overclocked i5 2500k, GTX 670 w/ 8gb ram, so I couldn't say
how it would perform on something with a bit less power, like a GTX 460 or other older gen card.
