*sigh* So if this does exist, it's likely to be online only I'm betting.

Ah well..


September 15th, 2010 at 5:01 pm

Yes it exists! I found the source


September 15th, 2010 at 5:13 pm

Was it from this live-stream thing Kouli posted on GameFAQs?


September 15th, 2010 at 5:15 pm

hmmmm so the PSU story is over after Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity. pso2…….new story or after PSO:BB


September 15th, 2010 at 5:15 pm

Can't wait to find out more~


September 15th, 2010 at 5:19 pm

Never played the first PSO, i hope they add/improve psp2 elements to it (gameplay-wise at least). This will be coming to the US when, like 2012,Lol!? Anyway if it wont be on the xbox I probably wont be playing it >.>


September 15th, 2010 at 5:55 pm

I don't really see how they can make a PSO2 without making it like Psp2i, or better than it (Which i only see as possible if they rid the game of generic looking areas, and make it more of an adventure). I hope they don't make the gameplay like the original :O I like rolling and blocking…And having more than 4-5 area's per episode…And photon arts…And a variety of clothes and etc to look different from other people…


September 15th, 2010 at 6:33 pm

@Riji-Kun: sega don't think lol and your right i'm used to playing the game fast pest the old pso was great epic but leak the stuff the new game have and vis-versa


September 15th, 2010 at 8:36 pm

Finally, they realized that instead of adding all of the monsters, music, stages, items and bosses from PSO to PSU that everyone wants, that it's better to just make PSO2.

Now I just hope they don't botch it.

It just sounds more and more amazing….


September 16th, 2010 at 5:03 pm

no love for the X-box,ps3 and wii gamers huh


September 16th, 2010 at 7:43 pm

I wouldn't mind it not coming to Xbox if such a port would decrease the quality in any way. Like if Xbox players didn't have access to this or that or the other. But if it can be represented on a console without any loss, then I'm hoping for a console version.


September 16th, 2010 at 10:02 pm

Our wishes came true… :>


September 17th, 2010 at 1:04 am

Expands on your character’s upbringing?


September 20th, 2010 at 3:48 pm

@sega dork – I couldn't help but think of Dragon Age: Origins when I saw that. This could be REALLY interesting if it is anything similar.

sega dork

September 20th, 2010 at 4:18 pm

what is it?


September 20th, 2010 at 4:36 pm

Oh, so you've never played Dragon Age: Origins or heard of it? You pretty much choose what type of area and life your character has had before getting thrown into the thick of things. It affects how other characters treat you throughout the game and even has side-stories to it. Of course, PSO2 might not have anything like that, but that's just what comes to my mind.

sounds great!!! i hope its like that


September 21st, 2010 at 7:12 am

where the story takes place well i hope its after PSOBB


October 28th, 2010 at 7:04 am

I cant wait for this, i think that they should make it so classes are permanent it really adds to how the player to player trade dynamics grows. I remember having friends in PSO that i could rely on for items and it was nice in a way that there were items that i had that were completely useless to me but valuable to my friends. Having set classes sort of forces communication and trade alog and adds to the experience.

I love the battle gameplay of Universe and i think that mags are better than partner machines by far because noobs hav them and they have a substantial presence at the early stages of the game.

i want sega to bring back all of the items in PSOBB and add new ones too. i can't see this really happening but i can still dream of mag cells,red rings, dancing hitogatas, heaven striker sets and the mighty dark flow.

In truth i know that it will be nowhere near what PSO was but if you can hear me sega, make it pretty dern close. oh and dont make forces look so umm un force like as in Universe.

another thing, give the game balance.

I very hope PSO2 will be on Xbox 360 like PSU.
