PlanetSide 2's Faction Trailers Link Politics With RAWK


Sony have released three trailers (captured and laid out for your interrogation below) detailing the factions in their free-to-pew MMOFPS Planetside 2. Crudely speaking these are the red dudes, the purple dudes, and the blue dudes. But it's more subtle than that: the blue dudes also have some yellow detailing, while the red guys actually have a lot of black in their uniform. Also, there's some kind of underlying political battle-philosophy. My battle-philosophy is that I'd rather die wearing shiny purple war-trousers.

What's yours?

Am I right in thinking that the factions in Planetside 2 represent these political factions? NC = Democrats, TR = Republicans, VS = The Internet? YOU DECIDE.

You can, of course, join in with the various RPS outfits, in a number of factions, over on the Planetside 2 sub-forum.
