So Sakai is on vacation until the 6th of January, which means I can go on vacation too. YAY! So I’ve been playing PSP2 a lot more online as a result while doing tactical missions with chat shortcuts telling people what to do. (To the point where they sometimes rage quit!)
Last time when Phantasy Star Portable 2 was available for pre-ordering, different game shops around Japan were releasing telephone cards that were a bit sensual.
Who could forget this?’
Shougai uncovered some new telephone cards which you can get by pre-ordering the game. They still look slightly sensual as before.

On 3/31 Enterbrain will release the Infinity Players Bible which will contain detailed information about the game. However, their last psp2 bible made a lot of players (especially wiki writers) extremely upset, so now people are wary of purchasing it.
The Demo Leak
On New Years Day in Japan, the Demo was leaked early before its intended date. The story of how it happened occurred when @yuuta_star obtained the demo from a friend who worked at a Net Cafe shop in Tokyo. He then promptly set up a Nico Nico video showcasing various aspects about the game.
News traveled quickly through 2ch and created a big furor amongst fans. It also possibly caught the attention of Sega when Yuuta_star writes a long apology note about how he meant no harm to Sega and removed the video due to the insistence of fans. A few hours later his twitter account was suspended.
The leak can be attributed to the SupportKit where different game shops in Japan can request a UMD demo with the intention of distributing the demo to patrons.
According to 2ch, we note there are about more than 2 people releasing news and aspects about the game, but generally the information is mixed with false and factual and it can be hard to discern who is telling the truth and who is not.
Some of the information posted revolves around the PA balance changes (which pretty much if you thought it would get a nerf, it certainly did) and aspects about the new hairstyles (some hairstyles are certainly surprising in the female side of things) but we’ll just wait until the demo is released officially.
