The news means it's gone from a day one purchase for me to me waiting it out and seeing what the whole pvp shebang shakes out to be like before a purchase. out of the I'd say 80 or so times I've been invaded across demons and dark souls only 2 of them were fun encounters so without hearing that they changed pvp quite drastically then I'm out.
Same! I'd rather just read about it or watch a let's play/load our last souls sort of deal if it's as stupid as being invaded was in Dark Souls. What a deal breaker, seriously.
