    I'm gonna give it a go. It is free to play anyway. I am gonna at least run through the story and lore for sure.

    I'm looking forward to playing PSO2, but I'm skeptical and will believe it when I have game in hand.

    I like PSO 1 a lot more than 2. 2 is a solid MMO but its not even close to as good as PSO classics dungeon crawling. Though I would be lying if I said I didn't enjoy it. It was just hard to get into having to update the game and the Englsih patch every time I open the Tweaker and I joined late so all the English players were all so over leveled and I never really got into parties. I'll still play it to show Sega there is interest in Phantasy Star in the West so they don't screw us over again (even though I know they will).

    I was so excited when I heard it was coming to the west...again but for real this time. Don't get me wrong, pso1 is great but I think I would rather play pso2.

    I like both games, but I don't know if I'll make the jump to PSO2Eng yet considering how invested I am on the JP servers already. A lot will depend on the details, which aren't known at this point.


    SEGA knows their target audience.

    I'm looking forward to finally being able to try this out. Kinda still a bit upset it took this long, but at least I won't have to buy it now.

    I think I’ll give her a whirl as well. I know I wanted to play when they released in Japan but never thought would take this long to get released state side.

    @Ace_The_Black you don't need to buy the game, can start playing right now on jp server with an almost English client, having those incredibly fast patches after jp content is released (guess you do need to buy the same stuff as you will do later in a western release, like inventory slot but you don't have to buy anything) . Does anybody really believe Sega will threaten pso2 well? We're at Episode 6 right now, wonder if the western release will ever see all content before they release pso3 (which isn't to far away since one of the staff said pso2 will last for 10 years...).

    PSO2 NA is being released with all current content.

    There's also something to be said for playing with low ping and part of a full English community with full support from the company dealing with the game.

    People like to downplay the advantages of a proper localised server, but there's many reasons people don't want to play on foreign servers.

    I agree with Matt. I feel like it was difficult to find people to play with who spoke English, which is what drove me away from the game. Not saying I mind playing with JP players, I just don't speak or understand it and I enjoy the occasional in game banter. Playing alone or with a language barrier does get dull after a while. The English translation patches had some flaws as well and finding guides/advice on the game was a limited in English. It will definitely be nice to try the game again on a localized server.
