Launchpad to Collect Hardware Info

Launchpad to Collect Hardware Info -

Sony Online Entertainment has announced that they will be using Launchpad to gather information about the systems of players of Star Wars Galaxies. They assure players that there will be no intrusion into computers, and that the information will be anonymous and not associated with any one player.


Here at SOE, we are dedicated to providing our players with a world-class gaming experience. As our player base grows and changes, so do the many variations in system configuration, and we find it necessary to learn more about the systems being used to enjoy SOE products. While the system information already provided on a volunteer basis has been helpful, it presents an incomplete picture of the wide variety of system configurations used to play SOE games.

When Star Wars Galaxies players login beginning on Wednesday, October 4th, SOE will begin collecting data to assemble a more complete picture of the systems currently using the SOE family of products. We will gather some basic hardware information from those systems logging into SWG, which includes the following;

  • Operating system and version
  • Processor type and speed
  • Total RAM
  • Video card type and memory
  • Total Hard Drive Capacity.

Launchpad will be used to gather this data when it is initialized to start a gameplay session. There will be no intrusion into your computer nor will any software be installed to monitor your system. The information gathered will be anonymous and not associated with a specific user.

We appreciate your assistance in helping SOE to continue to offer our products to such a varied customer base. Thank you all for being a part of the SOE family.
