    Phantasy Star Online 2 - 2020

    UPDATED: 18JUN2012

    OPEN BETA CONFIRMED - 21JUN2012 1600 JP Standard
    Equivalent times - 0200 US Central, 0300 US Eastern

    Details on registering for Open Beta TBA - for now, a SEGA ID account is required.

    Ricardo has a pretty good guide on the general SEGA ID process here (NOTE: This was for Pre Open Beta).
    http://bumped.org/psublog/phantasy-s...tration-guide/

    Anybody with access from alpha/beta/pre open already will have access. Just download the update materials with the patch program. OB will be using the same client.

    People coming in for the first time and don't want to wait for SEGA to release the details about the downloader can fetch it here:
    http://pso2.jp/players/download/

    That way, you're not stuck patching on the 21st.

Talk about one heck of puzzle to put together! The full, original list can be found here.
    Excited. PSO was my first, i'm not sure if it qualifies as an MMO, but seems everyone has extremely fond memories, lookin to make some more!

    Nah, see. I think SEGA realized they dropped the ball on PSU, so they went back to PSO. Honestly.. PSU could have been PSO2 if they hadn't tried to be extra cute on shit. They can't get a Sonic right, but PSO2? I can see it happening.

    At least I hope so..

    They can keep the PSU series alive on the psp while keeping PSO on pc.

    Hopefully this ends up being good, but honestly I don't have a lot of faith left in Sega or the Phantasy Star games after PSU. I suppose it could end up being really good, but then there's the issue of if they'll even release it outside of Japan after the blunder that was PSU.

    All they would have to do is take PSO, up the graphics, and just add a shit ton more content and I would be happy D: Something about PSO that I didnt mind grinding the same level over and over and over.. idk what it was, but in PSU it was just horrid to do. I played PSO since JP Alpha on DC was released.. such a great game even though it was just a massive grind fest..

    Sonic Team's attitude to their international audience is what makes me leery of this so I'm just gonna sit and wait and see what they're trying to do with this game as far as online is concerned.

    As much as I absolutely adored PSO back in the day, PSU (more specifically Sega's mismanagement of it) kinda ruined the whole thing for me. I played PSU for a solid year on the Japanese PC/PS2 servers, which were subjected to the same "drip feed" but of course they got stuff 3 months before NA/EU and 360 folks. They really do treat their non-Japanese player base like second-class citizens and PSUJP has really shown me that. Unless they ditch the "segregated regional server" thing and treat both sides equally, I'm not touching this.

    Language barriers aside, that was always something I liked about PSO, and to an extent FFXI.

    PSO was my first "mmo" if you call it that as well. Pretty excited for this. I didn't play PSU so I didn't experience the disappointment that a lot of you guys did. Phantasy Star 0 on DS a while back revived some of my old fondness of the game. I really hope this one doesn't suck.

    MAKE IT A PROPER PC GAME, LEAVE THE CONSOLES AND THE CHEATS BEHIND.

    I still remember faking sick for several days of school after unwrapping this baby back in 2000. This is the reason why my social life ended, and I WANT IT NOW.
