Why is this still a mere suggestion?
This is the one genre of MMOs that can free us from the mundane *Run around... Hit something... Run around... Turn that in... Repeat*
Someone needs to not only salvage the genre but salvage this game. This game is unprecedented and unique, with creative empires and brilliant weapon/vehicle design, it is not only ripe for a well maintained MMO but a very good foundation for perhaps a new series of strategy games or single player FPS.
SoE killed SWG, and left Planetside to wither because of no maintenance or added content. Another game company needs to buy the PlanetSide title and do what SoE should have done that could make PS a historical MMO
