Densify... Euclidean vs Geodesic

Hi Dan Patterson - Do you know about projected versus geographic coordinate systems with the Densify tool? It says to pick an 'appropriate' spatial reference but I don't see more details. I want to make sure I densify a planar line and keep it planar. The densified lines come out ~30 meters apart depending on whether I use a PCS or GCS. I'm unclear on why, and if it's because one is planar or geodesic, or if something else is going on.

 

Thanks for any ideas.
