Sega Announces Phantasy Star Portable 2 “PSP The Best”, Ambition of Illuminus Free on Xbox Live
Today’s major announcement but I’m sure you saw it coming, Phantasy Star Portable 2 “PSP The Best” will be released on Japan’s shorelines on August 26, 2010. This announcement will hopefully put to rest fears about the product code expiring.
To recap, if you have imported PSPo2, you must register your product code on the Japanese Playstation Store before December 3rd, 2010. However, you may alternatively wait for PSPo2 “The Best” version which may or may not have a product code expiration date. Though if you are waiting that long you might as well get the English version for NA/EU expected to be released Fall 2010. (Unofficial US date 9/14/2010)
What’s new in PSPo2 THE BEST?
“The Best” version of the game is equivalent to “Greatest Hits” in English speaking territories. However, instead of just a lower price, the game will come equipped with two new weapons as well as a sheet that lists each and every Vision Phone Password which has magically appeared on this site.
Purchasers will receive Wing Spada and Wing Scudo product codes!
